Partway into his set at Toronto's Heavy TO festival on August 11, Marilyn Manson apologized to all Canadians for a quip he made during a recent interview with the U.K. website Entertainment Wise. He also clarified his relationship status with the sk8er girl.
When asked to confirm rumors that he was dating singer Avril Lavigne, he denied any link to the Canadian pop-punk princess and pissed off her compatriots in the process.
"F-ck that, she's Canadian,"
he had said in the interview, insinuating he would never sleep with a lowly Canuck.
Last night, however, he apologized and explained his comments to thousands of metal fans.
"No offense," he said, from the stage. "It's just that I was f-cking her and I didn't want anyone to know."
For many, Manson's set was the highlight of the first night of the second annual Heavy TO, a two-day heavy metal and hard rock festival held at Toronto's Downsview Park.
