He has been called an emissary of Satan and falsely is the responsibility of one of “the worlds largest” notorious shootings in US history. But the vocalist has never been afraid of outrage. Is that really an self-justification, though, to flick our interviewers testicles?
It is while exploring the difference between his place personality and his day-to-day life that Marilyn Manson rests over and movies me in the testicles. This comes as quite a astonish: I have encountered a lot of unusual things as a writer, but have thus far managed to get by without an interviewee touching my genitals. More remarkable still is that reclining over and flicking my testicles appears to is part and parcel of his answer to a question of determining whether he has ever experienced consumed by the character he organized a one-quarter of about a hundred years ago, in the same method that Bowie struggled to separate himself from Ziggy Stardust or the Thin White Duke. Certainly, the action he says:” That’s certain differences !” immediately afterwards indicates it is, but I’m not sure.
For one thing, I am agitated by my absces testicles, and, for another, I wasn’t really following his wrinkle of proof at the time. First, he took my notepad, wrote “person” on it and contributed an “a” at the end.” I’m this and I’m this ,” he said.” A person and a persona. But I can’t really partition the two. There’s a difference on the stage; beings I don’t know I only seduce, in a good deal of ways. You go offstage and people … even me and you now, talking …”
His voice trailed off and, while I was trying to work out whether he had just said that he did inhabit a different persona on theatre he flicked me in the testicles.
It’s all a bit peculiar, but then the interrogation has been peculiar from the minute I stepped into the Berlin hotel suite where Manson is receiving the press. He is midway through a European carnival tour and promoting his forthcoming eighth recording, Heaven Upside Down, a production he describes as” hard-bitten, punk rock, Killing Joke, Joy Division, Bauhaus, Scary Monsters”, and which reunites him with Tyler Bates, a guitarist, make and soundtrack composer good known for his work on Guard of the Galaxy. Manson seems astonished that Bates agreed to work with him again after 2015′ s The Pale Emperor, or rather its following expedition, during which closer relations between the two languished to such an extent that Manson pulled a box-cutter knife on Bates.
Heaven Upside Down was announced the day before the US presidential election, in frequently understated Marilyn Manson style, with a short video that was widely reported as showing the singer beheading Donald Trump.” Well, there was no actual decapitation pictured ,” he demurs.” It was show. And no Trump. There was just a guy in a scarlet hog-tie. Could have been a preacher. It’s funny that beings interpret what the hell is want to see .”
