Marilyn Manson is a master of manipulation and I wouldn't be surprised if his latest interview with Spin is just to drum up sales for his new release. In the interview he says that many of the songs on his new album are about his breakup with Evan Rachel Wood and his murder fantasies. "I have fantasies every day about smashing her skull in with a sledgehammer."
Uh huh. Tell us how you really feel. He says that, "My lowest point was Christmas Day 2008 because I didn't speak to my family. My walls were covered in scrawlings of the lyrics and cocaine bags nailed to the wall. I was struggling to deal with being alone and being forsaken and being betrayed by putting your trust in one person, and making the mistake of that being the wrong person."
But wait, it gets better. I know. It's hard to believe it could get any more bizarre, but this is Marilyn Manson we are talking about. Oh, and Marilyn, don't you think perhaps Dita von Teese may have had those same feelings when you dumped her and your marriage for a 19 year old? Karma my friend. Karma. Anyway, Marilyn said, "I made the mistake of trying to, desperately, grasp on and save that and own it. And every time I called her that day - I called 158 times - I took a razor blade and I cut myself on my face or on my hands."
Remarkably he has no visible scars. Maybe they are beneath the makeup. You would think that 158 cuts with a razor blade would leave a mark. And I also have problems believing that he cut himself that many times. I would think that after the first 60 or 70 times you would realize she isn't coming back no matter how many times you cut yourself and would have probably moved on. I think this is just publicity and maybe he called her a few times just so he could arrange a time for her to pick up his stuff and he got a paper cut or two while wrapping up her stuff in a box. Those paper cuts can sting so maybe he equated that to 158 times with a razor to the face.
