Marilyn Manson has spoken about his excruciating stage injury that happened during a perfomance in New York City. 

After being treated in hospital, it was confirmed he has broken his leg in two places.

"I only recently watched the video of it," he told Yahoo.

"I can see how it could look terrifying. It was terrifying for me, because the truss was not secured properly. I wasn’t trying to climb [the prop that fell]. It started to fall and I tried to push back and I didn’t get out the way in time."

"I’m not sure what I hit my head on, but it did fall onto my leg and break the fibula in two places. The pain was excruciating."

"It definitely could have crushed my skull and my ribs. I have some minor bruising in that area, but it took six guys to pull it off of me. It was like wrestling a giant iron monster."

"The thing that pisses me off most is that I’m not onstage, because that’s where I should be. And with a cast on my leg, it’s hard to talk about the excitement of the tour."

"It got cut off right as I was about to put it into second gear. But I’ll be back there really shortly and it’s going to be as exciting as it was starting out. Because of the timing of it, it’s probably some part of a bigger plan that this was meant to happen, and I had to take that sacrifice in order for things to fall into place."
