Who are you?
You are Marilyn...
And you are up here in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada talking about
your throbbing uncircumsized member! Please tell us a little bit about
that, Marilyn Manson.
Now, Marilyn Manson, you can also arrange numbers: numerology. In your
first couple of records, there was quite a bit of numerology. Lately hasn't
been as much. Any comment?
Aren't you working on some tarot cards too? Is there going to be Marilyn
Manson tarot cards? I know there was some sort of tarot cards. But are
there going to be Marilyn Manson tarot cards?
Is there Marilyn Manson lipstick?
That's not a Todd McFarlane one, is it?
Although he is Canadian, and you are in Vancouver, British Columbia,
Canada, right, Marilyn Manson?
So, what about some of the imagery that you really like. Jodorowsky or
Kenneth Anger: what can you say about that sort of stuff? You really enjoy
that kind of stuff, don't you, Marilyn Manson?
What can you tell people about them, for people that don't know?
And you are Marilyn Manson! Now, Marilyn, you love films! What can you say
about some of these that I've just jotted down - I was just wondering the
importance of them. Number one: The Holy Mountain.
What about Even Dwarves Started Small?
Werner Herzog, right?
Crimes of the Future by David Cronenberg?
Marilyn Manson, David Lynch, Eraserhead - you like that flick, right? Who
doesn't really like it, right?
Now there is a rumour - are you going to be working on a movie with David
Lynch there? Are you going to be working on a movie with him with Billy Ray
Cyrus in it? I heard this little rumour that you are going to be working
with Billy Ray Cyrus - in a mullet, Marilyn Manson!
Marilyn Manson, did you once approach Jello Biafra to be in a film? Jello
Biafra once told me this, that Marilyn Manson had approached him.
Do you think you might put him in a movie?
Yes, he did! In Highway 61 by Bruce McDonald.
Well, Marilyn Manson, speaking of hockey hair and mullets: Creed. What
about Creed? Are they really the new Stryper of the new millennium?
Actually I thought you might have actually said that. I noticed it on the
metalsludge.com website. Have you checked that one out at all, Marilyn
Now, I don't know if you are going to like this or not, Marilyn Manson, but
um, if you could hold the mic here for one second-
What do you see? This I think really offends you. What do you see here?
I understand, Marilyn Manson, that that kind of disgusts you slightly.
Marilyn Manson, Quiet Riot. Did you bring them in one time to play a
private party? Did you help bring them back?
"Come on Feel the Noize" - why, what happened? Have they been hitting you
up for opening spots at all?
Marilyn Manson, what about King Diamond? Are you a big King Diamond fan?
Because for people who don't know, there have been a lot of comparisons
between King Diamond and Marilyn Manson?
But like the name, you know: King Diamond, Marilyn Manson, you both sing
about the occult, and you've both been ordained priests, by Anton LaVey.
Yes, he was the first rock 'n' roller ever to be ordained a priest by the
Church of Satan. The guy from King Diamond, King Diamond. Just like you,
Marilyn, I was wondering, when you were ordained a high priest, did you
actually get to check out Anton LaVey's place? Because friends of mine
actually have a couch from the "ritual chamber." What's it like there?
Did you cry when he died?
You don't think he is going to come back as a bat at all, do you?
Well, Marilyn Manson, a couple of quick questions here. You covered "I Put
a Spell on You" by Screamin' Jay Hawkins.
That's a great song. Now, he recently died. Did you realize he had sex
twenty-one times a day?
Have you ever been able to compete with that number, Marilyn, twenty-one
times a day for sex? Do you think you would be able to be up there with
He also had fifty-seven kids.
You have a new girlfriend now. Dita von Teese?
Now she has the largest corset collection in the United States of America?
That's pretty interesting!
And, winding up here, Marilyn, do you realize in Vancouver, British
Columbia, Canada, "Beautiful People" is a song they use when the Vancouver
Canucks hockey team rush on to the ice?
Well, I'm just going to ask you one last thing: Corey Feldman. Corey
Feldman. I did an interview with Corey Feldman a little while back and he
was stoked to be in your book, but then he was kind of scared, because..
did you turn on Corey Feldman? Because you're a great Corey Feldman fan,
Marilyn Manson. What was the deal between you and Corey Feldman?
You said it was as offensive hanging with him as it would be "pissing in a
deaf girls' ear," him and Leif Garrett. That is what you said in Pulse
Well, thanks very much, Marilyn Manson, really appreciate your time. What
is your favourite internet search engine?
Great! Well, thanks very much. Keep on rockin' in the free world, and doot
doola doot doo...
