Because Instagram pictures never ever lie, I was under the impression that Justin Bieber counted Marilyn Manson as one of his famous friends. Last year, Justin Instagrammed a picture of himself and Marilyn with the caption: “Night out with the boys.” Justin’s BFF pastor doesn’t have to worry about the Babadook’s cousin luring Justin over to the dark side, because according to Marilyn Manson, they’re most certainly not friends.
Marilyn Manson spoke to a few news outlets to promote his upcoming album and single, and it sounds like one of the goals of his promo tour was to talk about Justin being a brat. We already know, but I’m sure we’ll all appreciate the reminder. During an interview with Billboard (via E! News), Marilyn Manson talked about meeting Justin Bieber for the first time.
“I ran into him in some fancy bar where a lot of celebrities – a word that I despise – go. I saw a little girl in a pink hoodie with blond hair, and it turns out to be Bieber. I sit down, and I say, ‘Hey, so you wore my shirt and everything onstage.’ He was one of those touchy people that hit you when they talk, and he comes up to about dick height. Then he goes, ‘I made you relevant again.'”
Marilyn Manson was extra unhappy about that whole t-shirt thing. The front of the shirt had Marilyn Manson’s face on it, but the back had BIEBER printed on it. And then he sold the shirt at Barneys for $195. As Kendall Jenner has learned, that’s a major no-no. Marilyn Manson could have sued the pampers off Justin Bieber, but instead his management team waved a white flag and told Marilyn Manson he could have all the proceeds from the shirt. Marilyn Manson explained in a recent interview with Consequence of Sound that he wouldn’t have taken the money if Justin hadn’t acted like such a little asswipe when they met in the club.
“He was a real piece of shit in the way he had the arrogance to say that.”
Even though he was getting paid for those shirts, Marilyn Manson decided to get a little revenge on Justin Bieber by trolling him about a performance together.
“The next day I told him I’d be at his soundcheck at Staples Center to do Beautiful People.” Manson never intended to perform with Bieber, but “he believed that I’d show up, because he was that stupid.”
Marilyn Manson probably thought he was pulling such a “fuck you” power move. But what he failed to realize is that Justin Bieber probably wouldn’t have cared that Marilyn bailed on the show. I mean, Justin Bieber didn’t even want to be there himself most of the time.
Here’s Justin Bieber on Wednesday night looking extremely sweaty while leaving church, which apparently is the same church Chris Pratt goes to.
