‘Mad’ Manson’s like a hurricane
Bit of a bruiser: Marilyn Manson
London Lite Tuesday, 2 June 2009 15
On a swelteringly hot day, Marilyn Manson is in his hotel room wearing head-to-toe leather, a black hood and dark glasses. His face is caked in white make-up, his mouth is lipsticked in plum, and he’s drinking a large, lunchtime glass of absinthe.
After applying some kohl (“I need to fix my face”) he sits down on a sofa and tells me to sit next to him. Then he asks for a hug. Then he curls up with his head in my lap. By the end of the interview, I’ve been cuddled, kissed and licked on the cheek – while a “special friend”, Esme, laughs at him from the corner.
We’re supposed to be talking about his new album, The High End Of Low, so I try. He’s described it as “my Hurricane Katrina”. What does that mean? “It represents my personality. Like Katrina, I ruin everything. I fuck shit up.”
Meaning relationships? He divorced burlesque star Dita Von Teese in 2007, and ended a subsequent relationship with 21-year-old actress Evan Rachel Wood last year. “Yes. I’m Nero and I’ll burn the city down. If I had the integrity to kill myself I would. If I ever do, though, I won’t go easy. There will be a hundred other people dead first.”
It’s hard to tell whether or not he’s joking – after all, he seems to enjoy playing the pantomime villain. Is this part of the act? In response, he turns to Esme and says: “Show her your butt.” She pulls up her skirt to reveal large, purple bruises. “You shouldn’t be shocked. I’m 100 per cent against violence towards women.” Then he giggles. “It’s just that you Brits bruise easily.”
Manson is fond of saying he’s “insane” – does he actually have mental health issues? He laughs and plants a lipsticky kiss on my cheek. “That’s the best question I’ve ever been asked. I have so many issues I could be a magazine.”
I decide to leave him to his liquid lunch; he decides it’s time to give me a fireman’s lift out the door. I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone as crazy as Manson, which is just what he wants you to think. Hey – it sells records.

我々は彼の新しいアルバム、”The High End of Low”について話すべきだと思われたので、私はそれを試みた。彼はそれを「私のハリケーン・カトリーナだ」と言った。それにはどんな意味が?「それは私の個性を現している。カトリーナのように、私は全てを破滅させる。私はブチ壊すのさ」
