Marilyn Manson wants to have a baby to pass on his ‘demented genius’

Marilyn Manson

Here are some photos from last week of Marilyn Manson performing in Milan, and the man just never gets any less creepy, does he? Unfortunately, I have actually seen Manson in concert — not that I intended to, but he was an opening act for Nine Inch Nails (Trent Reznor = my precious) during their mid 1990s Downward Spiral tour. All I really remember is thinking, “Who the hell is this guy?” as Manson simulated sex with various objects onstage. In that way, he sort of beat his ex-wife, Dita Von Teese, to the punch, but he’s not nearly as attractive while doing so as she remains to this day.

Now Manson is still kicking around much in the same fashion, but he’s apparently respectable enough to sit down for an interview with The Guardian. Okay, so that’s no guarantee of respectability, but he’s talking about normal, everyday things. Well, except for his tight, bro-like friendship with Johnny Depp. Seriously though, all sorts of young starlets are getting broody now — Miley Cyrus and Kristen Stewart, just to name a few — and now the biggest diva of them all, Marilyn Manson, has joined the club as well to declare that he wants a baby too. The horror, the horror:

Marilyn Manson

On growing up: “As a kid I had buck teeth and braces and acne. I hated what I saw. I’m still not comfortable, but that’s why I change and adapt the way I look.”

On feeling broody: “My girlfriend Lindsay’s twin just had a baby and I’ve started to think that maybe I wouldn’t mind passing my demented genius on to some small thing who can set fire and breathe profanity.”

On his ideal woman: “I am drawn to women who are independent and creative, which is problematic because it’s a struggle, a competition of careers. There’s jealousy. And if you don’t want to be known as Marilyn Manson’s girlfriend, why would you be it?”

On Dita Von Teese: “I’m on good terms with my ex-wife, but I saw her last night at the Met Bar in London and I think there’s a part of her that’s still pissed at me.”

On his bro: “Johnny Depp is like a brother to me. We have matching tattoos on our backs — Charles Baudelaire, the flowers of evil, this giant skeleton thing. It’s kind of a secret. People say to us, ‘Why did you get that?’ And we say, ‘No reason.’ Actors always want to be musicians and musicians want to be actors. The thing with Johnny is, he was a musician first, so he knows how to jam. He has taught me how to get in a room with someone I don’t know and start playing.”

On mom: “My mum has dementia so she doesn’t know who I am now, but when she did she’d say: ‘Gentlemen prefer blondes.’ And I would say: ‘But I’m a villain.’ If you think about it, the hero is the good guy almost by default. They have this moral code they follow simply because they’re supposed to, not because they really believe in it. The villain is the one with real passion.”

On being a relative prude: “I’m not some sort of sexual deviant. I think I would laugh nervously in the face of a threesome. I’m shy. I’m the kind of person who turns the lights out.”

I guess we can put those awful rumors of Manson’s alleged love connection with hardcore rebel Avril Lavigne to rest now, right? She’s too old for him anyway, but is Marilyn seriously considering passing on his bizarro genes to some poor baby? I can just see it now: Baby’s First Chinese Skeleton. And of course, he’d save the kid’s foreskin too. After all, it’s a family tradition.

    I’ve been to his concerts and they’re not bad, the ending is rather abrupt but if you like his music, then you’ll like his concert..

    I think when someone close to you has a baby, it always puts the thought in your head of what it would be like, well-it does me anyway. I get all “Maybe I should have a baby” and then I snap out of it, realize I like my life the way it is and move on..

    • tooey says:

      Just saw him back in May and it was a really good show. Although it did end abruptly, lol. I don’t take all of that make-up and evil crap seriously; it’s just theater. And kind of genius when you think about it. When he doesn’t want to be “Marilyn Manson” he can walk around like a normal person and no one knows the difference.

    First Lohan, now this one….we are doomed as a civilization.

  3. DanaG says:

    I wondered what he was doing. I’m sure his girlfriend would be happy to carry his spawn. I really liked Dita Von Teese she was too classy for him though. Poor kid will probably rebel by being normal.

    ““I’m not some sort of sexual deviant. I think I would laugh nervously in the face of a threesome. I’m shy. I’m the kind of person who turns the lights out.”

    I used to hang around a bunch of strippers. One night Manson does a concert in town and invites about 6 of them backstage. They told me there were PILES of cocaine and the band members kept switching sexual partners while running to the bathroom to wash their penises off in between. One of my dancer friends was crying about how dirty she felt afterwards. This was about 11 years ago.

    A sexy prude?? OH please!

    • cupidityrox! says:

      Yuck! I’ll bathe in boric acid for a week if I ever got with someone as digusting as this!

      • Mooshi says:

        Funny you say that. The dancer I mentioned called me right after she went home and showered for an HOUR and called me sobbing.
        My other girlfriends who were there called the next day with the same story.
        Only two of them didnt have sex with any of them…….they just stayed for the cocaine.
        I asked them all “wtf were you thinking??”

    • Eleonor says:

      This is beyond disgusting.

    • DetRiotGirl says:

      Oh God, my skin is crawling just reading your story! I’m not usually this grossed out by groupie stories, but there’s just something about Manson and his crew… Ugh, it’s like having an orgy with ICP. Gross!

    • mzthirtyeight says:

      Yeah, definitely not a prude. A couple of friends and I, upon leaving a bathroom at a concert, got backstage passes from two strippers. We thought it was pretty cool until we got there. The LEAST demented thing we saw was Marilyn Manson like crazily gnawing up and down a groupies leg and sucking her toes like icecream cones, grunting and slurping right in the mid of the room. It was weirder than it might sound. I do think, however, that he is an itelligent man with a plan, and I also honestly think he has a lot of great songs, particularly off of Antichrist Superstar.

  5. seVen says:

    he’s going on tour with Rob Zombie (im in love with zombies guitarist) so im gonna ba going to that show if i can swing it… I like manson overall but sometimes he tries to be shock worthy and comes off as try hard…

  6. sup says:

    too bad he’s the only one who thinks that way :) i love him anyways

  7. irishserra says:

    I went to school with him. He is (or was) a really shy awkward nerdy person. Most of this is just an act he puts on. However, it’s quite possible that fame has just gone to his head and and/or the drugs instill him with temporary confidence to do the nasty things he does. Huh, I guess he’s a lot like John Mayer then, isn’t he?

  8. Chris: now with 10% less negativity says:

    “He (Marilyn Manson) has a woman’s name and wears makeup . How original” – Alice Cooper.

  9. Adrien says:

    So the baby will go door to door trying to shock people?

  10. Beatrix says:

    He’s actually a very eloquent and articulate man; intelligent. Like most of us, though, he has issues and deals with them in a way that may not actually benefit him- his drug problems are well known and have ultimately led to lots of his past breakups.

    There are a lot of other celebrities talked about on this site who would be much worse parents than this guy.

  11. Ravensdaughter says:

    An excellent reason to bring a child into the world (note sarcasm)!
    I agree, though, he is an articulate guy and seems to have his head screwed on straight.

  12. tiredofrumers says:

    his girlfriend’s twin sister had a baby… his girlfriend’s twin sister dates (or dated) james iha… james iha is (maybe) a dad?!?!?!?!?! amazing!

  13. wonderwoman21 says:

    Still less scary than the thought of Michael Lohan caring for an infant

  14. Kadymarie says:

    oh my god you guys!! if he wants to have a kid, let him have one!!! what skin is it off your nose anyways??? sorry im being rude but im not happy about getting my gallbladder removed :(

  15. pintaLOL says:

    I love MM and always will. He’s a brilliant artist and a genius. Let him have an effing kid. I bet it will make him settle down a bit. He is EXTREMELY smart. The States could probably use some more smart kids these days.

    • Minty says:

      “The States” is a big country with a population of over 300 million. We have diversity. There are all kinds of people living here and there are enough smart kids as well, thank you.

      Manson is a famewhore, not a genius. He spent more time boning groupies and bragging about his sexual conquests on Howard Stern for attention than writing any music. Most of his “hits” were cover songs. What great original songs is he producing with his extreme intelligence these days, hmmm?

      I feel sorry for any child he would have. He’s self-absorbed. I doubt fathering a child will change him into a selfless, nurturing type. He’s more interested in leaving a “legacy” than raising a human being.

  16. Lisa says:

    lol. As a musician, his talents are questionable. But he’s not a bad writer. He should have stuck with journalism, because he’s no slouch.

  17. lettylynton says:

    The biggest shock he could give the world is that he’s a great parent, so if he wants to try, I say go for it. My parents looked and acted more ‘normal’ than him but they still managed to massacre my childhood.

  18. Aubra says:

    A poser…always has been and always will be.

    And why do I get the feeling he needs to endure both sterilization and a vasectomy???

  19. catfromfla says:

    We used to go see him for $5 in the mid-1990s. He was always in it for money, fame and girls not music or being creative. This is a persona to cover up a sneery, nerdy and unattractive young man. He hasn’t changed or evolved since 199whatever. Boring, tired and gross. Just like his buddy Mr. Depp. And I guess that super-cool, he-man-girl-hater’s club secret tattoo ain’t a secret no more. What a jerk.

  20. MollyB says:

    King of the Try Hard. His shtick was “shocking” I guess when I was a teenager and he was new on the scene, but now it’s old and played out and tired, just like Madonna’s long-in-the-tooth sexy act.

    • Minty says:

      Hear, hear! Van Gogh could be called a demented genius. Manson is a hack.

      He comes across as articulate in interviews, but that level of intelligence is absent in his music. Like Madge, he uses shock tactics and transgressive imagery to distract people from his lack of musical talent. Instead of producing good original material, he keeps doing crappy cover versions of songs by more talented musicians (Sweet Dreams, Highway To Hell, Tainted Love, I Put A Spell On You, Personal Jesus). He can’t sing – he just croaks and screams.

      Dita is well rid of him. The fact that he and Jenna Jameson hooked up just adds an extra layer of gross.

  21. Amanda_M87 says:

    That’s a great reason for wanting to be a dad Manson. (sarcasm)

  22. voodoo says:

    WHY is he selfcentered,a poser and does it all for money and fame?you just saw him once,listened to maybe just 3 of his songs,and some of you might have seen him once in one of his cncerts…you just propably don’t know him personally and you hate him because he just doesn’t fit your ideal beauty standards or/and because of the way he chooses to present himself in the just NEVER dedicated some time to listen/read JUST ONE of his interviews and to think of what he’s think of how true and honest a person JUST MIGHT BE despite the way he looks,his social status,who he is…YOUR SOCIAL STANDARDS KEEP YOU STUCKED IN THE WRONG WAY OF THINKING.YOU WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO SEE ALL PEOPLE AS EQUAL JUST CAUSE YOU DON’T LIKE THE PRESENCE OF SOME OF THEM.i am listening his music and am always there for what he has to say.i have loved,now love and will always love marilyn manson.i just fell sorry for the future of humanity with closed minds and racist souls like will always be there ready to throw all your hatred at the people who think for themselves.
