was born on January 5, 1969
His real name is Brian Warner.(no shit)
He's liked by many and hated by 95% of the Christian commuinty.
What pisses me off is those dudes who go "OmG LiEk MaRiLyN MaNsOn Is TeH RaWk"
Anyways,Marilyn Manosn is a very intelligent individual and is a certified painter.
He is known for his contreversial topics.I personally believe it's just a stage persona. There are protests at almost all of his shows. I respect him as an artist and like a couple of his song's. His band's current album is their Greatest Hit compilation named :Lest We Forget.
"I never said to be like me, I say be like you and make a difference."
Okay, there are posers that say they like Manson and they have no idea what music it is in the first place... but there are also good diehard fans like myself. I love the band and I love him to death.
He has great songs and not-so-great songs. However, at the end of the day, you'll see he is different, and if people keep on talking about him is because he is valid and has made you think of him and even post a definition here. He cares not about what people say about him, whether that be "he's an ugly woman", "he's a freak", "he is a joke". Really, he wouldn't have made it to where he is standing right now if he had paid attention to those comments.
Manson is an artist. He is into painting, literature, filmmaking and of course, music. He's done some sweet covers like "Sweet Dreams", "I put a spell on you" and "Get my rocks off", and not-so-great covers like "Tainted love" or "Personal Jesus". His best albums in my eyes, are Antichrist Superstar and Holy Wood (In the shadow of the valley of death). Off of this records, I recommend you take a look at 'Beautiful People', 'Man that you Fear', 'Mr. Supestar', 'The Hate Song', 'Valentine's Day' and 'Coma Black', among others. His early videoteque is amazing and quite artistic, back to his Antichrist Superstar days, working with Floria Sigismondi in the video 'Tourniquete' and 'Beautiful People'. His last videos have been a little different and more aimed to MTV crap and that shit, but the core of this band is really artistic.
Personally, I believe there isn't a particular age to start behaving maturely and to be able to say 'Yeah I know what I'm talking about'. A smart person is born smart and dies smart, a retard scumbag is born an idiot and dies like an idiot. I started listening to Manson when I was 10 and now I'm 18. I won't say I know a lot about music genres, but I truly don't care about it if I feel good listening to Manson's music. I never labeled myself as goth or anything like that, I just knew this guy was different and Marilyn Manson as a band is great. You can remain stupid and close-minded for all your life and even when you're 40 you'll still say he's goth and satanic. I don't mind explaining people why I think he is such a great influence. I do mind when people are retarded and bitch at the band because they pretend to be "SMART" and "NORMAL". If you want to be normal, you'll get lost in the crowd and nobody will remember your name. Manson chose otherwise and he'll be remembered, either for his "freaky" antics or his good music and twisted messages.
By the way, he doesn't need to put on make up or dress like a crack whore diva to get laid, I doubt he had trouble getting laid. He is married right now to Dita Von Teese (Heather Sweet). Weeding day took place in Ireland. He'll keep on making music and the day he quits, he'll do something else like filmmaking.
If you believe in only what you see, you're doomed to be afraid of world's misery. For once in your life open your mind and start to think. Do not follow trends or let some "smartass" influence your taste. Take a good look at Manson and if you're seriously convinced his music isn't your type, then it's okay; just don't go and start labelling Manson's fans as goths or prep teens, for we will label you as a worthless pseudo moral weak stupified asshole.
He is an artist.
Sex Sex Sex
And don't forget the violence.
A singer who causes chaos amidst society and the music lovers. Nobody can seem to deicde how to catergorise him. The best catergory is probably artist. His controversial ideas seem to shock the modern world, and many look at him in disgust, which are his aims.
Read his auto-biography to help shatter the myths surrounding him.
Logical Person: No, people like you are.
Conservative christian: You're going to hell when you die.
Marilyn Manson's band was originally called Marilyn Manson And The Spooky Kids, but shortly after the band was formed, the name was shortened to Marilyn Manson (the lead singer's name, obviously).
Marilyn Manson himself has never bitten the head of a defenceless animal nor had fake breast implants nor removed his ribs in order to give himself oral sex. On the contrary to what pathetic sociopath idiots think, Marilyn Manson does not have man boobs- he was cursed from the day he was born to be tall and terribly thin (something which he doesn't mind.)
He isn't gay (he is married to star female stripper, Dita Von Teese) and yet has no problem what-so-ever about gay people, gay sex or touching men-- wanna know why? It's because he isn't an idiot. He can accept other people.
His music does not just have shock value. I myself downloaded some of his music to find out who the hell Marilyn Manson was, before I had seen him and his band and back when I though he was a woman (/Marilyn/). It amazed me, and because of my love for his work I looked up more about him.
He isn't a Satanist (he doesn't believe in a God) yet is against Christianity. He isn't against Christianity because he is a 'Goth' (he isn't, by the way)but because his gained experiences have left him with some intelligence. If you don't believe me, buy his autobiography.

A pill to make you anybody else,

You took the angel away,
I killed myself to make everybody pay..." -- Coma Black
