Yes, he did drugs. He drinks Absinthe like there's going to no more!
No, he never took his ribs out to give himself oral, he said in his book if he did, there wouldn't be a Marilyn Manson because he'd be to busy sucking himself!
I don't know what exactly his sexuality is, but he was married to a beautiful burlesque dancer, and now is dating Evan Rachel Wood. He doesn't have a problem with gay people because he might be bisexual.
Born January 5, 1969
A famous eclectic
artist, head of band by with name that was formed in 1989. He is currently dating Evan Rachel Wood who was born September 7, 1987
His autobiography is called "Long Hard Road Out of Hell" I suggest everyone who loves or hates him should read it.
'I'm becoming what I used to be afraid of. When the whole world wants to destroy you, everyday is your last day and every performance is your final one. The Antichrist is not just me, or just one person. it's all of us, a collective state of mind that America needs to have awakened in them. I want to wake it in them. That's the purpose of this tour, maybe even my life, to make Americans realize they don't have to believe in something just because they've been told it all their lives. You can't have someone who's never had sex or drugs telling you it's wrong. Only through experience can you determine your own morality. Humanity isn't about constantly having to seek forgivness for being human; humanity is leading a guiltless existance as an individual. That is Armageddon, because, to Christianity, if you forsake God and believe in yourself, the world is over.'
-pg. 247 of The Long Hard Road Out Of Hell by Marilyn Manson
Somehow his fans constantly feel like they have to stand up for him and say "He is an artist" and a "lyrical genius" and that he is criticized because his view is not mainstream.
If his view is not mainstream, how come he has millions of fans, which hang on his every word? If you do not believe this, please take a look at the other definitions.
And if he is criticized because his view is not mainstream, why are his videos constantly on MTV? Sure, it's "not his choice" but he has done various interviews as well. He's even presented an award at the MTV awards with...Avril Lavigne, whom he said he enjoys the music of.
His live shows are not very edgy either; he's burnt a bible and some flags. That was Monday morning at the house of GG Allin. Marilyn Manson is a Sunday school teacher compared to GG Allin. And Manson is a bad image to Satanists, because he has admitted he is not truly Satanic and has various Christian morals.
The man has made some decent songs, but has also managed to ruin various songs with his pathetic covers. Sweet Dreams, Tainted Love, Personal Jesus, the agony.
Marilyn Manson, the man, the band, have made some decent songs; but are by no means 'lyrics geniuses' or 'edgy' and different from the mainstream. They are the mainstream. Marilyn Manson and Avril Lavigne videos are in the same time slot, and Manson is watching in enjoyment. The truth hurts, doesn't it?
Ignorant Person: He is the reason everything bad happens in this world.
Me: Pull that stick outta your ass and actually listen to him.
Ignorant Person: So you actually listen to this crap? SATANIST.
Me: Just because I listen to him, doesn't mean I /am/ him. Hate the actions, not the person.
Ignorant Person: Wait...whaa?
Me: That's right...
