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
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...
While at first glance they're songs seem painfully obvious, a lot of the time there are several underlying meanings that make them more interesting.
And yes, Marilyn Manson is a satanist, that is, a LaVeyan Satanism. He's a reverend at the church of Satan and the entire Antichrist Superstar album was dedicated to the teachings of satanism (Look up the lyrics to the reflecting god).
Conservatives hate him because he is a satanist.
Goths hate him because they feel he's a wannabe.
Metal fans hate him because they don't think he's really metal.
Marilyn Manson = Most hated man in music.
