Marilyn Manson is a Reclusive Cat Lady

Marilyn Manson loves catsIn a New York Times profile on Marilyn Manson’s “phoenix rising” music and acting career, we learn details so mundane they’re actually startling.

Firstly, Manson gave up the drink he mentioned in pretty much every interview prior to this one (absinthe) to get in better shape, and was inspired to do so by Charlie Hunnam from Sons of Anarchy. 

He’s also best friends with Johnny Depp, enjoys Sisqo’s “The Thong Song” and loves his cat Lily more than anything in this world.

Otherwise, Marilyn Manson is a bit of a homebody, preferring to watch TV and movies or paint. His dearest companion is his 11-year-old danderless cat, Lily White. “She is definitely the one true center of my universe,” he said, scrolling through photos of her on his phone. “It’s the closest thing, I guess, to having a child.”

Enjoy this picture of Michael C. Hall rescuing a cat from a roof and imagine fellow unexpected cat ladies Snooki, Manson and Russell Brand there lending a hand.

Marilyn Manson to Star in ‘Sons of Anarchy’

Marilyn Manson no makeupMarilyn Manson joins the long line of musicians to star in FX’s Sons of Anarchy including Henry Rollins, Dave Navarro and umm, Ashley Tisdale, if she counts?

Like Rollins as rapist and n-word killer AJ Weston, Manson will play a jailed white supremacist.

His character, Ron Tully, reportedly has “considerable power” even though he’s behind bars.

Sons has been such a big part of my life, as well as my father’s,” Manson tells Variety. “I was determined to make him proud by being involved in what will probably be remembered as the most amazing piece of television cinema. After all, the very heart of SOA is about that relationship. So, now all I need is a motorcycle.”

Paris Jackson: Out of the Psych Ward and Into the Frying Pan?

Paris Jackson instagramParis Jackson’s whirlwind week seems to finally be coming to an end, but is the teenage daughter of the most prolific pop star of all time in trouble beyond her recent hospital stay for a suicide attempt?

Of course she is. Celebrity offspring (Bobbi Kristina, Stephanie Rose Bongiovi, Mackenzie Phillips etc.) are like child stars who never had to work to get where they are. They’re a more unpredictable breed of socialites. Equally spoiled, yet more scrutinized.

Jackson’s psychiatric hold was lifted Saturday evening when she was transferred to UCLA Medical Center, the same hospital where Michael Jackson passed away.

A statement approved by Paris’ guardian, Katherine Jackson, released just after she cut her wrists said, “Being a sensitive 15-year-old is difficult no matter who you are…”  Continue reading “Paris Jackson: Out of the Psych Ward and Into the Frying Pan?”

Taylor Momsen Onstage With Marilyn Manson (Johnny Depp Too)

For a second I bet you cocked your head to the side and widened your eyes a bit at that headline. This seems like a less likely threesome than Kevin Bacon, Neve Campbell and Denise Richards. But I KNOW, it was boring old Matt Dillon, so vanilla.

If you think about this pairing, it makes sense. Taylor and The Pretty Reckless are going on tour with Marilyn Manson, and Johnny Depp is a known part-time musician who contributed strings and drums to a cover of “You’re So Vain” off the new album, Born Villain, out in early May.

They performed separate duets with the shock-rocker, Momsen for “The Dope Show” and Depp on guitar for “Sweet Dreams” in L.A. for the 2012 Golden Gods awards.

Video: Marilyn Manson – “Born Villain”

It’s no shock that Marilyn Manson’s new NSFW video “Born Villain,” gave me the creeps within the first 10 seconds for its eerie silent haircutting scene. The song is an upcoming single from Manson’s untitled eighth studio album, due this year or the beginning of next.

It’s also no surprise that this video is age-restricted on YouTube. Which just means you can still be 12 and watch it, you just need an account.

It’s less surprising that Shia LaBeouf directed this video, in all its whispering, skin-piercing, head-shaving, full-frontal glory.
