“Imagine, for example, if you were in a nightclub and someone said to you, ‘Hello, I enjoy bloodshed, throat-slitting and the destruction of life,’ well, I doubt if you’d want to exchange phone numbers.”

Responding to another question on his fan site, True-To-You.net, the 54-year-old said: “If you believe in the abattoir then you would support Auschwitz. There’s no difference. People who disagree with this statement have probably never been inside an abattoir.”

The Independent also reported that the singer was writing his first novel after the success of his autobiography published last year.
