Trent Reznor is the latest artist to comment on the disturbing abuse allegations that have been leveled against Marilyn Manson. The Nine Inch Nails frontman issued a statement saying that he has “been vocal over the years about [his] dislike of Manson as a person.”
Reznor previously signed Manson to Nothing Records and produced his first two albums. The two then ended up having a falling out in the late 90s, though Manson later claimed that they had made amends.
More recently, Reznor was brought into the conversation surrounding the abuse allegations against Manson after an excerpt from Manson’s 1998 autobiography “The Long Hard Road Out Of Hell” resurfaced on social media. In that passage, Manson claimed that him and Reznor sexually assaulted a drunk woman together. Reznor has since called that story a “fabrication” in a statement to Pitchfork:
“I have been vocal over the years about my dislike of Manson as a person and cut ties with him nearly 25 years ago. As I said at the time, the passage from Manson’s memoir is a complete fabrication. I was infuriated and offended back when it came out and remain so today.”
Reznor’s comments come after Limp Bizkit’s Wes Borland recently said that “every single thing that people have said about [Manson] is fucking true.”
Nine Inch Nails‘ Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross are among the nominees for this year’s Golden Globe Awards. The musicians were nominated in the “Best Original Score – Motion Picture” category for their work on the scores for “Mank” and “Soul.” The latter found the duo collaborating with Jon Batiste. The awards ceremony will broadcast on February 28.

Tobacco has premiered a new song titled “Babysitter.” This track features Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor and it will appear on Tobacco’s new album, “Hot Wet & Sassy,“ which is set to be released on October 30. Tobacco told Rolling Stone the following:
“I’ve always been an album guy and my albums are my zone, so Trent being on this one is one of the more meaningful things to me. Now he’s melted into it. ‘Babysitter’ is like one of those experiments I need to do every once in a while, to see how far I can push it within the constructs of writing a song, without just making noise. [It’s] edging. Probably not that different from how Taylor Swift does it.”
