Former Pantera frontman Phil Anselmo recently gave his stance on today's media, referring to his latest solo record "Walk Through Exits Only" opening track "Music Media is My Whore."

When asked by Artisan News on whether the press should be worried over such title, Anselmo replied: "Depends on who you are, 'cause I tell you what - the media has had a free go at f--king not just me but any person that is of interest in the world. The media can write objective pieces, they can write actual pieces that are 'news,' they can write opinionated pieces, they can do whatever the f--k they want."

Phil continued in his distinctive manner, "So if 'Music Media is My Whore' happens to offend you, then maybe somewhere down the line, you shortchanged me on purpose 'cause you're jealous of my cuteness. And I don't blame you, I am desperately cute but ... [points at drummer Joe Gonzalez] he's the cutest Illegal I've ever seen in my life. Look at him, it's the little Blue Gonzales!"

Anselmo's currently also busy preparing the inaugural Housecore Horror Film Fest set to take place from October 24 to 27 in Austin, Texas. Featuring Down, Goblin and Pig Destroyer as some of the headliners, you can check out the event's full lineup here.

"Walk Through Exits Only" dropped on July 16 via Housecore Records as the singer's debut solo release. Mr. Anselmo's unique appearance is a bit hard to depict through words, so we recommend checking out the video below.

    Why does UG care about EVERY statement Phil makes?
    They don't, it's just that his voice is just so thunderous they can't help but pay attention.
    When's Phil's collaboration with Kool Keith gonna come out? I was looking forward to that.
    Well, you kinda were their wh*re in the later days of Pantera (what pretty much caused the breakup), so you're even now, eh?
