Marilyn Manson is a very strange but interesting American metal rock singer and songwriter who chose to set himself apart in the music industry by wearing a white-painted face and dark lips. He became popular after he released some records in the 1990s most notable of which are Antichrist Superstar and Mechanical Animals. These songs in addition to his public image gave him a spot among controversial figures in the mainstream media and also confirmed him to be a bad influence on youths, who actually make up a greater part of his fan base.
Being a devout Satanist, most of Manson’s lyrics are usually made up of disturbing dark secrets about various hellish topics. He is truly living up to his description of himself as the god of fuck. He also spoke to Rolling Stone in 2015 saying that his point on earth is chaos. The entertainer has, at different times, done some uncanny things while performing on stage and this includes cutting himself and urinating on the audience.
