Marilyn Manson’s Blog

Goth 'shock-rocker' infamous for his wild stage antics and genre-bending, Manson's songs aim to critique conservative 'middle' American values. Raised as a Christian, and a student of Journalism, he quickly evolved/mutated into what he is today. Albums by his eponymous band include: Holy Wood, Eat Me Drink Me, and Antichrist Superstar. His autobiography, The Long Hard Road Out of Hell, discloses the many subversions he is known for, including sexual fetishism, drug addiction, nihilism, and his ambivalent contract with Revlon.

I want my make-up back

By Marilyn Manson

Hello Mormons: fuck you too. You know who you are.

When our tour bus arrived at Salt Lake City, I immediately, and distinctly, felt the presence of two not-yet-fully-explained phenomena: salted air and Mormons. I know how to handle regular evangelical Christians (onstage auto-sodomy can be very compelling), but these Mormons are more complex. You can have 12 wives, but you can’t have caffeine.

One of the ladies from the Mormon Relief Society (who were protesting outside our van), greeted me with a liter of Coke, or as she referred to it, ‘Black Devil Water’. She shook it terrifyingly, uncapped it, and drenched me.

My mouth is getting tired

By Marilyn Manson

Bio & Blog

marilyn-manson_000784_mainpicture.jpg

I can sing and scream all night about the repressed middle-america fools; I can talk all day about faux-politics and pseudo-philosophy. But honestly, I’m getting a little burnt out here with all these endless photo shoots. I’m so sick of making unnatural gapes with my mouth, and sticking out my tongue in unnecessary ways.

The whole point was to be different. My predecessors, albeit creative in their own way, simply didn’t flay the mark of progressive paradigm-bending culture that I do. Trent Reznor’s anger is one-dimensional, predictable in teen-age boy kind of way. Alice Cooper’s use of mascara is passé—a redundant circle ostensibly receding into his eye-socket like some human skull. Eww, I’m scared. Seriously, come on grandpa. Nobody does things with their mouth that I do, except for Mariah Carey when she does that crazy pitch thing.
