Marilyn Manson has never shied away from controversial performances or beautiful women. Apparently, the contentious goth-rocker had his fill of both in Berlin, Germany the last couple of days.
Promoting his highly-anticipated album, Born Villain, Manson performed his hit song “The Beautiful People” with German industrial band Rammstein at the Echo Awards. The night before, Manson allegedly engaged in a tete-a-tete at a Berlin restaurant with “Video Games” singer, Lana Del Rey.
That would make Marilyn Manson the second Manson this week to give his “approval” of Del Rey. Yesterday, in an interview with Vanity Fair, Shirley Manson said she found parts of herself in Del Rey’s story.
[pullquote quote="She's beautiful. She's really talented. She's the real deal, and I think that's threatening to people. "] ”She’s beautiful. She’s really talented. She’s the real deal, and I think that’s threatening to people,” elaborated Manson. “She clearly has an aesthetic and clearly has worked hard before she got to this point in her career. She has a past? God forbid, they lambasted her for having a musical past. It’s good she’s failed and she had the wherewithal to try again. Shouldn’t we be applauding her for that?”
Jam! Showbiz is reporting that Marilyn Manson and Del Rey might be dating as they were seen “sneaking into a hotel together” after eating at a restaurant in Berlin, Germany on the night before the Echo Awards.
