Underneath the makeup, novelty contact lenses, wig, and corpse paint, Marilyn Manson is just some gangly, nerdy dude, right? He’s what Harris Trinsky would be if they had Hot Topic in 1980 (or Bill Haverchuck, perhaps). Either way, the man knows how to work it, especially around goths.
In a teaser for Kerrang!’s exclusive Manson issue this week, they posted a bit about how women love being insulted by the former Brian Warner. “The way I compliment a girl now is by saying, ‘I want to throw knives at your vagina’,” Manson said. “They go ‘Oh, you’re so cute, you’re so charming’. I say, ‘No, I’d like to set you on fire and snort your ashes’. ‘Oh, Manson!’ they reply.”
Manson says he had a dry spell with the ladies when he shaved his eyebrows, but he’s grown them back, so you better protect your daughters from the emo Rudolph Valentino.
