London (ANI): Rockstar Marilyn Manson has contracted swine flu. The 40-year-old had got himself tested earlier this month and his report confirmed that he had the dreaded flu. The Daily Express quoted Manson as writing on his personal blog: "So I have officially been diagnosed, by a real doctor, with THE SWINE FLU.
"I know everyone will suggest that f**king a pig is how this disease was obtained. However, the doctor said, my past choices in women have, in ''no way' contributed to... me acquiring this mysterious sickness. Unfortunately, I am going to survive. M."
Manson is the latest celeb to have been infected with the flu virus after Harry Potter star Rupert Grint and The Streets' bass player Wayne Vibes contracted H1N1 earlier in the year.
