Marilyn Manson, born Brian Warner, is an American music icon. He is a heavy metal rock ‘n’ roll star who has sold more than 50 million albums worldwide. But he is also a man in his mid-forties, who has not outgrown his goth phase. The guy is an enigma. You will find him commenting intellectually on the American obsession to celebrities and violence, but his songs often make him come off as a self-absorbed teenager, who has deep love for himself and an antisocial behavior. We have penned down top six of his most outrageous quotes.
Number Six: All the seven deadly sins are man’s true nature. To be greedy. To be hateful. To have lust. Of course, you have to control them, but if you’re made to feel guilty for being human, then you’re going to be trapped in a never-ending sin-and-repent cycle that you can’t escape from.
Marilyn Manson seems to completely write off religion or morality here. But that’s almost heavy metal artist, right?
Number Five: As a kid I had buck teeth and braces and acne. I hated what I saw. I’m still not comfortable, but that’s why I change and adapt the way I look.
We have seldom seen him outside of his goth getup. Maybe revisit this quote, Marilyn?
Number Four: To me, Satan ultimately represents rebellion.
I suppose everyone has a right to their own opinion. But I am pretty sure Satan represents much more than just rebellion.
Number Three: I pity anybody who has to spend a day with me.
Now don’t beat yourself up like that, Marilyn. We can take off that makeup and pretend to have a nice day out, in a normal fashion.
Number Two: The death of one is a tragedy, but death of a million is just a statistic.
Marilyn Manson may have been on a completely trajectory here, but we sincerely believe that one death or a million – they are all tragic. Sometimes, it’s okay to just not say anything, maybe?
Number One: “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 fuck shit up.”
Or maybe he just needed some good friends and family who would buck him up once in a while. One almost feels sorry for the guy after reading this. Almost.
