Madge snarkily rebuffed Marilyn Manson’s gracious offer to ‘fornicate’


Two months ago, Marilyn Manson dropped an odd (for him) comment into an i-D interview to promote his Pale Emperor album and tour. This wasn’t a reaction to the Drake incident from last month. From how the journo described the discussion, Manson was dropping an unprovoked, stream-of-consciousness thought: “I’m kind of interested in this Madonna record. She looks hotter than ever. I’d also like to let it be known that I still have a crush on Madonna and I would definitely fornicate with her.

Was it a real overture? Who knows. Manson says random crap all the time. I think he was serious but (even as a Manson apologist) believe the statement was half-cloaked in douchery. Here’s my translation of Manson’s offer: “Of course I’d sleep with Madonna even though she’s ‘past her prime.’ See how generous I am? Yet I’m far too cowardly to make a direct play, so imma drop this random ‘compliment’ in between questions and drink it off later when she doesn’t notice.”

It took this long, but someone finally alerted Madge that she has a freak-ay admirer. She delivered the perfect half-response on Instagram:

Um………thanks! @marilynmanson ❤️#rebelheart

A photo posted by Madonna (@madonna) on

Um………thanks!” could mean many things, but it doesn’t even rise to the level of “Call me, maybe.” She layeth the smackdown and dismissed his “Oh, I’d bang you even though you’re the Old” with less than a full sentence. Then Madonna retired to the boudoir with her latest 20-something dude and laughed at 46-year-old Manson: “He’s the one who’s too old!” (Here’s something even more telling. Manson is following Madonna on Instagram, but she’s not following him.)

FYI: Manson will be okay. He’s currently grinding through a sold-out US tour, and he’s back together with Lindsay Usich (who appears to be with him on tour). I hope she laughed at him too.

    If they hook up, at least I’d still retain some interest in Madonna.

    • zimmer says:

      Good point. She should do it for PR. Otherwise go away. She’s become a desperate, predictable bore. A hookup with Manson would get people talking again.

  2. Nk868 says:

    Her hair looked nice and youthful at met gala, less fried/pin straight than in the past and it softens her look

  3. Dhavynia says:

    Why is it so weird that a younger man would still find her sexually attractive? I can say the same about many older men like Pierce Brosnan or Alan Rickman without hesitation and it’s not breaking news. Is it because it’s Manson saying it or is it because is Madonna who he’s referring to? I see the same level of attention craving from the likes of Beyonce (yeah I know I’m going to get crapped on for saying it) but I don’t see the same reaction and people will say it’s because of her age but I don’t think that should be relevant since obviously the woman can still bring it.
    Sorry for the rant but the Madonna bashing for being older but still being herself is just getting old

    • Shambles says:

      I don’t think anyone was saying it’s weird that a younger man would be attracted to Madonna. What’s weird is douchey way MM went about dropping his “compliment.” As for people bashing Madonna for just being herself as she gets older, I see it the exact opposite way. I think people have a problem with her because she buys herself a new face every 5 years, and refuses to be herself and age with grace. Plus the fact that she tries so hard to be “hip” that she ends up saying something offensive or acting completely rude.

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Right. His inference was that he would be doing her a favor.

      • MrsBPitt says:

        @Shambles….why would you think that Madonna would “age with grace”? This woman has never had an ounce of grace! You don’t all of a sudden become graceful, just because you age! Nope, I see Madonna, at age 80, her face pulled so tight that her eyes can’t open, wearing a bustier and fishnet stockings…She hasn’t changed her way for 35 years, I can’t see it happening, just because she is over 50!

      • Shambles says:

        @MrsB, lmao. You certainly have a point there.

      • enike says:

        Shambles wrote: “and refuses to be herself and age with grace” …. isn´t this an oxymoron? IMHO, she is beeing herself AND that´s why she will not age with grace,

        And, just out of curiosity, why she should age with grace? is it a rule or something? I don´t think its the rule for popstars/rockstars, anyway

    • Nev says:


    • perplexed says:

      Isn’t he only 10 years younger than her? (Guy Ritchie must be his age). He’s not 22. I figure because it’s Madonna, and while she’s provocative and bold and highly sexuallized, I can’t recall men of any age (even when she was in her 30s) calling her hot or sexy. Fit and athletic, but have a large proportion of guys ever digged Madonna in the way they dig Sandra Bullock?

      • mary simon says:

        I second that observation – prior to Marilyn’s remark, I can’t recall any male celebrity, or even any of my male friends, ever express a desire for her or call her sexy – or even pretty. I think Sean Penn may have loved her but Warren Beatty used her to appear relevant and to churn the PR for Dick Tracy. Women and gay males seem more taken with her, but I don’t think she appeals to heterosexual males as much.

  4. jinni says:

    I don’t know what the tone of the comments was but, from the wording it didn’t sound how you interpreted it. I didn’t pick up anything douchy about it.

    • perplexed says:

      I didn’t think it sounded like that either, although I wasn’t really sure how to interpret his comment either — would I take it as a compliment or find the word “fornicate” a bit too forward?

      • Allie says:

        Thank you! I thought it was a compliment, although I’ll admit using the word “fornicate” made it sound strange. Do we have to look for double meanings on everything now?

    • I Choose Me says:

      Hm, let me par se. Hotter than ever. Still have a crush. I would definitely fornicate. Nope, don’t think the wording itself is douchey. What’s douchey is saying it in a public forum. I mean really, how is she supposed to respond to something like that.

      • jinni says:

        If this was anyone other than Madonna, I’d see your point. But considering the kind of things Madonna has said and done in the public eye it doesn’t seem so offensive and if a more conventionally attractive guy had said this I don’t think people would automatically find offense with what he said or the arena he choose to share this opinion in.

    • enike says:

      Yes, I didn´t think its an “insult” either….. I think its a compliment

      Madonna looks hot and sexy

  5. danielle says:

    Not usually a Madge fan anymore, but that was a good response.

  6. Adrien says:

    Madge looked really great.

  7. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    He shouldn’t have said that. She shouldn’t have responded publicly.

    • MrsBPitt says:

      lol….GoodNames, you would be too classy to make or respond to these comments….but remember who we are talking about! There is not an ounce of class between either of these two!

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        So true about them – I just thought I’d throw it out there in case they were reading this. Lol

  8. Lis says:

    Love her outfit! Rebel Heart … always. :D

  9. Kiddo says:

    Eww and eww.

  10. Sandy says:

    I have not purchased a Madonna album in years, the the deluxe version of her album has got some excellent tracks. I was very surprised when I heard it, as I did not like the first single. Pleasant surprise.

  11. Classy says:

    Her fillers have settled down a bit, and her hair looks good.

  12. FingerBinger says:

    I don’t get “she’s past her prime” and I’d be doing her a favor in that comment. I’ve read Marilyn Manson interviews and he doesn’t beat around the bush. He says what’s on his mind.

  13. ashley says:

    I’m currently watching season 7 of sons of anarchy,and i didn’t even know that manson is in it. This is the first time I’ve seen him without makeup,he looked totally different. Madonna has passed her prime,just chill and enjoy life and stop being a fame whore.

  14. JRenee says:

    He’s still creepy. ..

  15. StaceyP says:

    Okay thanks for the visual…going to bleach brain now.

  16. LAK says:

    We need to talk about Madonna’s new face…..she looks good. Why hasn’t she been seeing this surgeon?

    • Tessy says:

      I think she’s unrecognizable now. If I saw the picture without a caption I would not know who it was. She looks like somebody off one of those housewife shows.

  17. daria says:

    whenever i see him i just remember an interview where Jenna jameson said during sex he would bite her elbow. it was E true holly wood story or something like that.

    I grew up in the early 00s when Manson was devil music and therefore he was kind of a guilty pleasure whenever i wanted to scare my parents. I like his new record though from what ive heard. I saw him in concert a few weeks ago in NC and the crowd definitely wasn’t into him which I’m sure had a lot to do with him starting his show with “F*ck Jesus” and pretending to cut himself. it was a bit much and unnecessary in an ensemble concert where most people were there for other bands..

  18. Bread and Circuses says:

    To be fair, in those shots she DOES look better than ever. She definitely improves when she’s not trying to out-Miley Miley in the look-at-me-look-at-me exhibitionism department.

    • kri says:

      Actually, she doesn’t have to out-Miley Miley, as she seems to have stolen her face…?

  19. KateBush says:

    Her face looks the best it has in years In these photos from the Met Gala.
    It seems softer.. She’s actually reminding me of Lourdes here which is funny as she’s played around with her face so much I wouldn’t have thought there was much family resemblance left.

  20. Iheartgossip says:

    WAIT. WAIT. WAIT. Did we find ONE man Madge-Maw won’t have sex with????????????/// I’m shocked.

  21. jferber says:

    Madonna finally got it right. Her face is freaking gorgeous. Whatever she’s doing, I want to do it, too (but I’m sure it’s not in my peasant-y budget). Rock on, M. My question is, what man wouldn’t want to sleep with her?

  22. PinaColada says:

    She looks beautiful. I thought so when I first saw these photos days ago and I think so now, too. I’m less than half her age and she looks better than me.

  23. Me too says:

    Wow… She seriously looks in her 20s and resembles Gigi now.

  24. bns says:

    2 attention whores. They belong together.

  25. LA Juice says:

    oh for FAULK sakes, Madge- is there nothing you won’t use to promote your album, even personally directed misogyny and ageism? All my respect for you has died the saddest, slowest most painful death in the last year.
