GARBAGE star Shirley Manson is so bored of giving interviews - she tells lies to keep herself interested.

The Scottish rocker cringes when she remembers the foolish things she's told journalists, but she fears the huge amount of question and answer sessions she's forced to take on make it impossible not to make things up and contradict previous statements.

She says, "I'm so embarrassed when I think of every awful thing I've said. But you get bored of hearing yourself speak, so you end up coming out with different answers and you contradict yourself just to keep yourself interested.

"And even the words you choose aren't necessarily representative of yourself. So you're f**ked. You may as well just go home."
