MARILYN MANSON Addresses Controversial LANA DEL RAY Rape Video

"I'm a person that would beat somebody's ass if they raped somebody that I know."

"I'm a person that would beat somebody's ass if they raped somebody that I know."

Last month, a disturbing video surfaced featuring Marilyn Manson in some shots and then a staged scene where Lana Del Ray is being raped. At the time, a rep for Manson distanced the shock rocker from the video saying "Manson did not direct this, shoot it, nor was it for a Marilyn Manson video or outtake footage made by him or to be used by him with his music." The rep assumed it was a fan mashup video but they misspoke.

Yesterday, Manson spoke to British music mag, NME, about where the footage actually came from:

"It wasn't a Marilyn Manson video. The editor of the company that put it out was somebody who's edited my videos, that video was something that was done with a camera that Eli (Roth – director), who's my friend, and I both wanted to test out, so I let him test it out […] what they filmed was put in context seemingly as if it were a Marilyn Manson video, and that was in no way the intention."

Manson added that he had intentions of featuring Del Ray in a future video, directed by Eli Roth, but Del Ray "was being such a problem" that Manson nixed the idea. Manson made sure to add that the rape scene "is not the intention that is represented in that film clip because that is not what I filmed, not for my video." Manson reiterated that it was just a camera test and he would never release footage like that:

"But the people put it together with my other clips. And it really strongly stands out of place, it doesn't really make sense. I would not make a video of that nature, nor would Eli. I don't think either of us were ever intending for that to be seen, it was more of a camera test. I'm a person that would beat somebody's ass if they raped somebody that I know."

So the video came from the editing house but how did it end up leaking? I guess we'll never know.
