Guess it's the next logical step after this.

His last two albums were surprisingly good, especially High End of Low. He's always been an incredibly smart guy and I can understand just being over the press. Especially since it's clear that he's been pretty damned depressed for the past few years.

marius2: he's been pretty damned depressed for the past few years.


Depression is merely anger without enthusiasm.

I really dislike his music but the guy's incredibly smart, well-versed, and is an intelligent and apparently caring man. He's eccentric as fark-all but he's a decent human being and that's more than half the people commenting on this can say.

Tee hee hee, he's fat again!

/Fat Marilyn Manson is funny!

Never been much into his music, but I celebrate geeks who manage to transition to rock stars. When jocks end up rock stars, we end up with Creed.

The Baron: Here is a story of a similar, but more successful and discreet strategy. When penn gillette was on celeb apprentice and didn't want to be on camera, he would start singing 'hey jude' knowing nbc could never clear the music rights, and that it would cost millions. It worked.


What makes this more awesome is that I was able to find interview accounts of it so it's not an urban legend. Someone that manipulative is sort of frightening.

Geez...I don't like the fudge, but the fudge likes me. I remember he got really fat, was made fun of, then lost the weight. It's apparent he's gonna full on Fat Manson again.

Someone's been hitting up the all night buffet in the inner depths of hell.

SockMonkeyHolocaust: What kind of child equates pictures of photoshopped women with success? It's like you think that you're playing Magic the Gathering and you've just trumped any argument by putting down a vorpal dildo sword and Tawny Kitaen.

It's like listening to Kip Winger go on and on about all the women he banged in the 80s. Ok, dude but you're still kip winger.


Can't remember the last time anyone had reason to brag about being SockMonkeyHolocaust. Just saying.

Had never heard of Stoya until now.

I looked her up on Wikipedia: sounds like she had a surprisingly normal upbringing.

That's genius.


That was used on "30 Rock." Tracy Jordan was filming a reality show to rehab his image, and every time he wanted to be a dick without the public seeing it, he'd start singing "Uptown Girl."

This is actually very intelligent on his part. I read the Reddit thread (It was linked to me, okay? I wouldn't go there on purpose) where a person ran into him at the airport. He covered his face when children were present, made it clear it wasn't directed at anyone at the airport, and he was very apologetic. Leave the guy and his gimmick alone. He seems super nice. Only an idiot would buy his weirdness is legit, but maybe that's because I'm in the pro-wrestling business and understand kayfabe.

Brian was an unpleasant git when when he was in Pigface, and he's a git now. He was the LEAST talented member of the band, and he only became a big star when he figured out to rip off Alice Cooper's act and cover other people's songs.

As for his partners, well... Social climbing happens at all levels. He was a big star once, and that was when he had Dita and Rose McGowan. Now..? Not so much.

Because now he's just a washed-up, morose, overweight one-trick-pony that doesn't even have the chops to perform his own (borrowed) act from 15 years ago.

Meanwhile, Reznor-- who was actually pretty nice back in Pigface-- Is still making cool music that doesn't rely on a false image. Because he's actually talented and he treats people decently, unlike Brian.

Brian rose high, and he fell hard. He's not rising again. He doesn't need to paint "fark you" on his face to avoid paparazzi... He need to do it to attract them.

I wonder if his figure is going to hell due to age / genetics or perhaps he is on some sort of script.


Omega and the Mechanical Animals was a pretty decent album. Was a nice detour from his usual stuff. Billy Corgan was a consultant for the album so that probably helped to move if from the usual Manson stuff.

It's easy to be pretty when you're young and not worked over with bad cosmetic surgery. It's easy to date an ugly man when he's still rich, at the top of the social ladder, and controversial enough to enhance your niche image. A golddigger is a golddigger, whether she's mining for cash or for social status. Dating Brian was just good marketing and advertising for those women.

To be fair though, Rose got into a car accident, and had damage done to her eye. Ditta looks fine imo.

Nobody's reading this thread any longer, so now I can admit that I looked up even more interviews, and I'm impressed by this man's quiet intelligence, humor, compassion, and gracious, self-deprecating manner, as well as his creativity and expressiveness through music and other forms of art.

Yes, really.

I like him now, a lot. Gah!

Yeah, sometimes it is hard to separate the artist from the character. Many people first knew of him having a side other than the musical theatrics with his Bowling for Columbine interview.

I'm sure dating those women was good for his reputation. He is no great prize.
