One of the shortest, strangest feuds has finally come to an end. Marilyn Manson doesn’t despise Justin Bieber more than the sun, losing a weird contact lens, running out of jet black Nice ‘n Easy, and whatever else would really chap his ass.
Last week, while promoting his upcoming album, Marilyn Manson explained in two different interviews how Justin Bieber became his number-one enemy. Marilyn was pissed that Justin acted arrogant when he asked about the t-shirt Justin was selling for $195 with his face on it. Marilyn Manson recently admitted to Howard Stern (via People) that he’s over it. According to Marilyn Manson, Justin dropped the obnoxious brat act for two seconds and apologized via text. This is allegedly what his text said:
“I thought we had a pretty pleasant interaction. Also, if anything wasn’t squared away with the T-shirts, I’m so sorry. Anyway, regardless, it kind of stung seeing that I came off as an asshole or even just was an asshole, I’m sorry?”
Marilyn Manson claims he responded back: “You were just being you. No beef here.” But much like Justin’s song “Sorry,” he wasn’t done begging for forgiveness. Justin allegedly texted the following follow-up message:
“Honestly, I totally thought we hit it off. Again, my bad. If I was an asshole, that wasn’t my intention. Just want you to know that. I don’t really care about the media. I just wanted to make sure you and I were good ’cause I like you.”
I always pictured an apology from Justin Bieber being instigated by his mom (“Justin, what do you say?“) and Justin half-smirking: “Sorrrreeeee.” But that sounds like Justin was actually, for-real apologizing. It’s good he did that. I heard that if you curse the name “Marilyn Manson” three times before you’ve been put to bed, Marilyn Manson appears in a tree outside your house at midnight and drags you to Nightmaretown. Justin can safely sleep another night.
