Last Thursday, Kanye West (or “Ye”) held his third “listening party” for his album Donda, which still hasn’t been released. He’s got thousands of people coming out for these listening parties though, he puts on a big, stupid show. Last Thursday’s party was in Chicago, at Soldier Field. He had Kim Kardashian dress up in a wedding gown (ugh) and he set himself on fire. He also invited DaBaby and Marilyn Manson to join him on stage. Apparently, Kanye replaced a Jay-Z rap with DaBaby and the replacement happened recently, because everyone found out that DaBaby is a deplorable homophobe. The inclusion of Manson though, that one is enraging. We’ve spent months discussing the fact that Manson is a serial sexual predator who violently and psychologically abused multiple women over the years. Well, Kanye plans to work with Marilyn Manson.

Kanye West is collaborating with Marilyn Manson on Donda, despite the rocker facing allegations of sexual abuse and physical violence from more than 15 women.

Hours after Manson, 52, appeared onstage alongside West, 44, at his Donda listening party at Chicago’s Soldier Field, a spokesperson for Manson tells PEOPLE that the rocker and rapper will continue to work together on the release of Ye’s new album.

“Marilyn Manson’s voice is featured on DONDA,” the spokesperson says. “And he will continue to conceptually collaborate with Ye on the DONDA project.”

The new collaboration between Manson and West — who seemed to previously sample the rocker’s song “The Beautiful People” on “Black Skinhead” — comes as the rocker faces accusations of sexual abuse and domestic violence from more than 15 women, including actresses Evan Rachel Wood and Esmé Bianco. The singer has denied the allegations and has not been charged with any crime.

Bianco is also one of four women who have sued the singer for sexual abuse. Along with accusing him of physical violence and sexual assault, Bianco and Manson’s ex-girlfriend Ashley Morgan Smithline also accused the singer of sex trafficking.

Aside from the sexual abuse allegations, Smithline and several other women have accused the rocker of using anti-Semitic language and having an affinity for Nazi memorabilia. Smithline told PEOPLE that he kept a swastika-emblazoned knife at the side of his bed.

What’s worse, the idea that Kanye invited Manson to his Donda show because they’re friends, or the idea that Kanye invited him because they’re work colleagues? I really don’t want to hear any f–king bullsh-t from any of these a–holes about “cancel culture” or whatever either. While Manson is being criminally investigated, I have zero hope that anything will actually happen to him. Although Manson has lost his recording contract and some people don’t want to work with him, he’s literally working on one of the “most anticipated” albums of the year.

And WTF is Kanye’s problem? Kanye thinks that he’s some kind of contrarian, or that he’s so next-level genius that he alone understands that men like DaBaby, Donald Trump and Marilyn Manson are misunderstood and worthy of admiration. Kanye truly chooses some of the worst f–king people to defend and admire. I’m assuming the next Donda listening party will include Bill Cosby, Johnny Depp and Harvey Weinstein. I seriously wouldn’t put it past Ye.

    Out of those three, my money is on a Johnny Depp collaboration because Johnny is a “musician”

    • Annaloo. says:

      Sadly, I’ll bet you’re right. And imma pull a Kanye now:

      Kanye West hates women.
      Kanye West works with accused rapists.

      No more needs to be said.

  2. LaUnicaAngelina says:

    Of course. That’s all I’ve got. 100% agree with the contrarian theory. Try-hard bullshit.

  3. Golly Gee says:

    He is so disturbing to look at that I have to avert my eyes every time I see his picture. Serial killer who enjoys torturing victim vibes. I don’t understand how anyone could date him.

  4. Lawcatb says:

    The fact that Kanye’s album is so anticipated is proof that cancel culture isn’t real. This man should have been cancelled years ago, but he keeps getting pass after pass. I just don’t get it.

  5. Golly Gee says:

    Trump admires Putin, Kim Jong-un and Qaddafi among others of the kind.
    This tells who he is.
    Kanye admires Trump, Marilyn Manson, and DaBaby,
    This tells who he is, beyond trying to be a contrarian.

  6. CE says:

    He’s not a contrarian and this isn’t some artistic choice. It’s hateful and misogynistic and so is he. Bye! Over it

    • Kviby says:

      Yeah Since we know about the showers thing (re: his ex amber) he has been publicly misogynist for quite a while

  7. Aud says:

    Kanye is just not a good person. At all.

  8. Lucy says:

    Lol, why are people so surprised about this? Kanye is trash in every way and so is MM. Of course they’re gonna work together.

  9. steph says:

    I can’t help but feel Kanye’s mother would be ashamed of the person he is now.

  10. Market Street Minifig says:

    I have sometimes tried to reserve judgment on this guy because it feels he lost his compass with the sudden passing of his mother. But listening to a bit of his music recently, I have to wonder how someone who seemed to have such a positive, uplifting relationship with their mother turned out to be so deeply misogynistic in their artistic expression, and shows no capacity for redemption in this area. All of which is to say I see no inconsistency between his own lyrical content and who he is currently collaborating with.

  11. Lukie says:

    It’s amazing how predators and abusers get so many chances because of “talent” and “power”. Unf🤬king real.

  13. Courtney says:

    Good job, Kim. Your kids get to watch their mom support their dad’s delusional, toxic “art”. For what? To give you some kind of cred that your reality show can never get you? EYE ROLL.

  14. Ana Maria says:

    Kanye West always does this when he is about to launch a new project: he always courts controversy, and I believe he does it on purpose

    • Jennifer says:

      Oh, fun fact today: Donda got released online and he’s already complaining that someone did it without his permission.

      Methinks the label got fed up and just took matters into their own hands.

  15. Mandy says:

    Seriously grotesque!!

  16. Anna says:

    Right on brand for his misogynist, backwards, hateful b.s. I’ve been saying he’s a major problem for years and no one wanted to hear it, always making excuses for him. Well, does this answer the question, now? Is working with MM enough? ffs
