Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor was once friends with Marilyn Manson, but the blood's gone bad. Reznor admits that he's partially to blame for the friendship's dissolution, but hints that Manson's reliance on drugs and alcohol has turned the rocker into a different person.

Reznor reportedly told music mag Mojo, "[Manson] is a malicious guy and will step on anybody's face to succeed and cross any line of decency. Seeing him now, drugs and alcohol rule his life and he's become a dopey clown." Reznor continued, "He used to be the smartest guy in the room. And as a fan of his talents, I hope he gets his shit together."

Reznor's statements echo the reluctant admissions of Manson's ex-wife Dita Von Teese, who explained that the shock-rocker's party lifestyle had drawn a rift between them. She told The Daily Telegraph in 2007, "I wasn't supportive of his partying or his relationship with another girl. As much as I loved him I wasn't going to be a part of that."
