Wow, that was unexpected! During his latest interview with The Rolling Stone, Marilyn Manson really opened up about his personal life and habits.
Shoplifting and making love with his underwear on are just a few things that he admited. And he was serious too!
Here’s the excerpt.
About the new album: “It’s dirty, like the dirt under my nails, like someone who has dug a grave.”
About his littered love life: “I am flypaper for damaged women.”
About his offer to the journo: “We’ll drink some liquors. We’ll make words of our own. We will play rap music if we want to. I’m chaos, I’ve always been chaos, my point on Earth is chaos. I’m the third act of every movie you’ve ever seen. I’m the part where it rains and the part where the person you don’t want to die dies. I’m here just to f*** sh*t up.”
About being a gym rat now: “Treadmill, 10 minutes; arms, legs, on machines, no free weights.”
About his best friend, Johnny Depp: “We mumble like we’re a mumbling chorus, and we finish sentences with hand gestures.” On a deeper level, they share certain fascinations and predilections. They tried to buy the gun that Hitler killed himself with. Neither can go to sleep unless a TV is on. They have matching tattoos, as well: on their wrists, the phrase no reason, and on their backs, “Charles Baudelaire, the flowers of evil, this giant skeleton thing,”
Manson once said. “It’s kind of a secret. People say to us, ‘Why did you get that?’ And we say, ‘No reason.’” Today he says, “Johnny’s one of the only people I can talk to. I can’t explain it other than we don’t ever have to say anything, but we can’t really say it to anyone else, either. We like to consider ourselves 12th-graders, the guys with more experience than the ninth-graders, the ones that the girls want to f***. I mean, time and age are really irrelevant to me. Johnny is the same way. Sometimes, I think I’m trapped in the age that I started this. I’m trapped at 23.”
About his “craziness”: “I’m all forms of crazy, which I think is one of my most charming qualities. It’s not diagnosable, because it involves co-morbidity, which is when you have multiple disorders, so they can’t figure out what it is. I don’t really like being intimate with people. I think maybe twice in my life have I taken a shower with a girl, and that was in the dark.”
