The controversial shock rocker, once linked to the 1999 Columbine school shooting, has been officially diagnosed with the H1N1 virus. The virus is not believed to life-threatening and Manson is expected to make a speedy recovery, which prompted the star to crack a few joking about his diagnosis on his MySpace Celebrity Blog on Tuesday.

“So I have officially been diagnosed, by a real doctor, with THE SWINE FLU,” he wrote. “I know everyone will suggest that fucking 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 [sic]“

Manson isn’t the only celebrity to have been diagnosed with swine flu, which originated in Mexico. Last summer, actor Rupert Grint – who plays Ron Weasley in the hit wizard film franchise Harry Potter – contracted the highly contagious and potentially fatal disease.
