Throw down your pogs and take a hearty refreshing sip of your Crystal Pepsi, because we’re heading back to the 90s! That’s the last time Marilyn Manson was actually popular, but for some reason, he’s continued to keep his name in the press. How’d he do that?
By being a total tool. What, you think his music is still relevant? The LA Weekly ran a scathing behind-the-scenes look of what the shock-rocker truly is in reality: fat, really into coke, and a Von Dutch wearer. Wha? (At least it’s not Ed Hardy.) Here’s what happened when Marilyn and an amigo went searching for cocaine on a Christmas Eve:
When Keller arrived in West Hollywood at the Le Montrose suite, Manson answered the door, nearly unrecognizable. The shock-rocker stood in the doorway, wearing a Von Dutch trucker cap — sideways — and a white shirt covered in stains, pulled over his beer belly.
There’s a lot (and I mean a lot) of great stuff in this article, but my favorite has to be Marilyn’s ex Evan Rachel Wood‘s nickname while she was dating him:
“They called her ‘Snowflake’ because I guess when they played shows, she’d hold all the coke,” Keller claims.
Snowflake! It’s just too precious. But really, what’s a girl called Snowflake doing with an old fat guy who wears makeup? Thank god that ended.
And how does Marilyn Manson feel about this article? Surprisingly glum for such a cheery, happy person! He writes on his MySpace Blog (which is something more outdated than even him):
I can, but do not need to defend myself And the absurd accusations that the average press has clinged onto. If we need a nude photo of me to prove that I am far different than the soon-to-be-murdered-in-their-home press has decided to fabricate, that is easy. But if one more “journalist” makes a cavalier statement about me and my band, I will personally or with my fans help, greet them at their home and discover just how much they believe in their freedom of speech. I dare you all to write one more thing that you won’t say to my face. Because I will make you say it. In that manner. That is a threat.
Marilyn Manson’s threatening you over something you wrote over the internet! Better enter the witness protection program. I sincerely doubt that Marilyn Manson could scare a bunch of 8-year old Trick-or-Treaters. Maybe if he took his makeup off and kept wearing that Von Dutch hat.
