Recent reports have suggested Marilyn Manson and Avril Lavigne have become romantically involved, but the shock rocker insists they are not dating.
"Yesterday I read that I was dating Avril Lavigne and I was like 'F**k I wouldn't do that, she's Canadian.' No offense to Canada. I know her, I accidentally shaved her head... but, you never know where these stories come from," he told Entertainmentwise.com.
"Rumors, stories... I'm used to them. There's a different story every day. I'm amused by them, I find the creativity of them amusing. Sometimes I think they should be more creative, I'd like to read something unusual."
Manson is headlining this summer's Sunset Strip Music Festival in Los Angeles, which will double as a tribute to The Doors. The three-day music festival will kick off on August 16 and conclude with an all-day street festival on August 18, which Manson will close.
