look up any word, like ethered:
Marilyn Manson's real name is Brian Hugh Warner. He was born on January 5, 1969 in Canton, Ohio. His parents were Barb and Hugh Warner, and he's an only child. Manson has green eyes but wears a blue contact lens in the other eye. His hair looks pitch black but his hairs naturally dark brown. He's half German and half Polish. Manson's current resident is in Los Angeles, California.

Marilyn Manson was originally a music journalist before he got into music. He moved to Florida when he was 18 and began to write stories & poems. He tried to get his poems and stories published by various magazines, but continued to be turned down. It was when covering "Nine Inch Nails" for his magazine that Brian Warner was given an opportunity to meet Trent Reznor, who sponsored Warner's upstart band and eventually produced their first three albums (including the E.P. Smells Like Children). Scott Mitchell Putesky (a.k.a. Daisy Berkowitz) originally played lead guitar for the band but was fired during the recording of "Antichrist Superstar". He features on only three songs.

During his childhood, one of his neighbors molested him several times until the young Brian broke down one day and told his mother what happened. As an only child, he would often get into mischievous activities such as adventure through his grandfather Jack Warner's sex toys, shoot his BB gun with his cousin Chad, and create sex magazines to sell to his classmates. His parents raised him as an Episcopalian, and he attended the religious private Heritage Christian School. It was there that he became fueled with hate towards Christianity. During his tenth grade year, he convinced his parents to let him attend a public school.

After he graduated from high school, he and his parents moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida because his father got a better job there. He studied journalism and theater at the local community college called Broward, and being some place new and feeling lonely, he wrote poems and short stories. After being fired from his last job at a record store, he became entertainment journalist for a local magazine. He interviewed several famous musicians including Trent Reznor from the band "Nine Inch Nails". Along with his job and writing, he would also frequently go to rock clubs. He soon decided to create his own band. With musical influences from Ozzy Osbourne and KISS, he recruited other musicians with the same interests and started the band called "Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids". He got the name Marilyn Manson as a combination from the names of the movie star Marilyn Monroe and the psycho killer Charles Manson. The band's name would later officially change to just Marilyn Manson, and most of the original band members would leave and be replaced, too. Manson reunited with Trent Reznor and had his band tour with "Nine Inch Nails". Reznor would also produce Marilyn Manson's first three albums (Portriat of an American Family, AntiChrist Superstar, and Mechanical Animals) and an E.P. (Smells like Children). "Mechanical Animals" is Marilyn Manson's most successful album to date.

With the success, Manson became a controversial celebrity, because the anti-Christian message in his songs, and Satanist 'Anton Szandor LaVey' deemed Manson a Reverend for the Church of Satan. Also with fame, Manson started to mingle with other celebrities, and began a romantic relationship with the actress Rose McGowan. They became engaged, but broke off the relationship in 2001. He then fell in love with the burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese, and soon became engaged. They had a fairytale, non-denominational wedding in a castle in Ireland. Then on December 2005 Dita filed for divorced which left Manson in depression. Meanwhile, Manson came out with two more albums (Holy Wood, and the Golden Age of Grotesque), and a best of album (Lest We Forget: The Best Of Marilyn Manson). He also dabbled into acting by being in such movies as Jawbreaker (1999), Party Monster (1998) and The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things (2004).

Current News:
Marilyn Manson released his new single and music video Heart-Shaped Glasses (When the Heart Guides the Hand) starring, Evan Racheal Wood. His new cd (Eat Me, Drink Me) came out on June 2007. Manson said this album is one of the most personal albums yet. His lyrics to the music are inspired by his ex-wife, Dita and his new girlfriend, Evan Wood. He's currently working on a new movie (Phantasmagoria, the visions of Lewis Carrol). For now he performs through different countries entertaining the fans with his amazing music from (Eat Me, Drink Me).

1. American shock-rock/industrial (his style is actually very unique to him) musician with a folling of many teenage and adult fans sometimes called mansonites, though not all of them are. He is a pop-culture idol and scapegoat. He is often considered a lyrical genius and a revolutionary, however, some of his messages are intimidating to those who don't understand them.

* Viewed upon as satan, satan's spawn, or the messenger of satan by people who don't really appreciate what he has to say. see christians
*) "OMFG Marilyn Manson worships the devil!" (someone who doesn't have a clue)

*) "Man, that last song Manson wrote was fucking powerful" (someone who does have a clue)

*) "OMG Marilyn Manson is SOOO sexy!!!" (crazy fan kid)

Marilyn Manson - the pen-name of a rock artist (birth name: Brian Warner), member of the band formerly known as Marilyn Manson and The Spooky Kids. Now the band is also referred to as simply Marilyn Manson. Technically, it's not so much of a problem because about the only person who stays there always is Marilyn Manson himself. Some of the line-up changes from time to time.

MM is certainly a good target for criticism, but needs no defense: his reactions to the criticism are always quite keen and precise.

While his public image may seem shocking to public eye, he is NOT any of the following (although it has been claimed):
- Satanist or Devil worshipper
- Gay
- Mentally unbalanced
- Killer of little animals on stage (unlike Ozzy, who bit a head off a pigeon)

I cannot for sure tell if MM has anything against Christianity as a school of thought. If he is as intelligent as he seems (and he does make quite an impression), I doubt he is. But he definitely has a problem with the Christian religious institutes such as church (btw, chuch does not necessarily imply philosophy or even simple faith).

Personal opinion of mine is that his utterances are not to be overvalued, as they, while having value, DO fall short of an elegant philosophy MM seems to seek. Maybe he should spend a little more time with good books, but with his job I understand it can be difficult. I wish he weren't so caught up with the whole anti-christian act. Life is bigger than a fight against one say-but-dont-do religious system.

My guess is, MM would exell in writing. It seems he has much to say and explore, but the expectations of the crowd and limits of the format (namely, music) don't let him.

He seems to find himself in (rather good, may a add) watercolors and unique experiments with musical organic effects on the listener.

His music and imagery appeals mostly to the goth community,
much of it falls into the industrial niche, although most of his work cannot be accurately categorized, as with any truly talented artist.
A: Do you know who Marilyn Manson is?
B: M-m, I thought it was a band...
A: Well, that's true, to an extent. He's a lead singer in the band with the same name.

A 'musician' (or band) whom people find so edgy, even though a large portion of his/their fans are preps.

Somehow his fans constantly feel like they have to stand up for him and say "He is an artist" and a "lyrical genius" and that he is criticized because his view is not mainstream.

If his view is not mainstream, how come he has millions of fans, which hang on his every word? If you do not believe this, please take a look at the other definitions.

And if he is criticized because his view is not mainstream, why are his videos constantly on MTV? Sure, it's "not his choice" but he has done various interviews as well. He's even presented an award at the MTV awards with...Avril Lavigne, whom he said he enjoys the music of.

His live shows are not very edgy either; he's burnt a bible and some flags. That was Monday morning at the house of GG Allin. Marilyn Manson is a Sunday school teacher compared to GG Allin. And Manson is a bad image to Satanists, because he has admitted he is not truly Satanic and has various Christian morals.

The man has made some decent songs, but has also managed to ruin various songs with his pathetic covers. Sweet Dreams, Tainted Love, Personal Jesus, the agony.

Marilyn Manson, the man, the band, have made some decent songs; but are by no means 'lyrics geniuses' or 'edgy' and different from the mainstream. They are the mainstream. Marilyn Manson and Avril Lavigne videos are in the same time slot, and Manson is watching in enjoyment. The truth hurts, doesn't it?
"I am original and dislike the mainstream, that's why I listen to Marilyn Manson, like millions of other hardcore pre-teens."

A human being. Let's face it folks, yeah, some of us like his music, yeah some of us hate it. Some of us support what he stands for, some of us are against it. This doesn't make him some antichrist, devil reincarnate! Nor does it make him the god of today! I personally enjoy his music and i support many of his views, this doesn't mean i like him as a person. I DON'T EVEN KNOW THE GUY! So all you out there saying "Oh, yeah, he's like my god and i'm going to marry him and we'd totally get along" and all that crap need to remember that you don't know him and can't judge him like that until you actually do get to know him (which i doubt is going to happen).

Also, he's stated that his music is meant to make everyone feel accepted. Most people see this as a Goths only sort of thing. NOT TRUE. it is possible for someone to shop at Abercrombie and Fitch and like Marilyn Manson. Someone can go to church every Sunday and still enjoy his music. It seems like manson fans are creating these boxes to detirmine what a "true marilyn manson fan" is, and it's totally undermining his purpose of being. If his music is supposed to accept everyone and unite all then how is it right for us, his "loyal" fans, to define who is and who isn't allowed to like him.

what i'm trying to say:
1. Don't judge people you haven't met (for good or for bad)
2. Don't tell other's whether or not thier "worthy" of manson
3. Don't hate a person just because they share a different opinion than you (and vice versa, don't fall in love with someone just cause you share some similarities)
"It's the whole Nietzche philosophy of you are your own God. That's why I debase myself in the concerts and tell people to spit on me. I'm saying to them 'You are no different from me'." -Marilyn Manson

One of the most influential artists of this time. His lyrics often misunderstood, and misinterepted. A great artist. The man started in Canton, Ohio, going to a Catholic school. Then moving to Florida, he met other band members, adopted the stage name Marilyn Manson(Taking the first name of a pop star(Marilyn Monroe) and last name of a murderer(Charles Manson), and formed Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids. He then exploded in the underground, and after opening for his friend and idol's band NIN, he gained much popularity. Then producing Potrait of a American Family, he hit bigtime. The proclaimed Antichrist Superstar has been a target ever since for the blame of killings,suicides, drug problems, and various other things. While being influential, people need to know the difference between music and life, as if music can influence them enough to do these things, they already had problems. A genius in lyrics, he easily became a demigod for most, as his lyrics were direct,brutal to some, and uncensored. They were and are his opinions, and nothing else, and his fans love this. My favorite band on this planet. Also, rumours are spread about this man right and left, he is not gay, and never had ribs taken out to blow himself. A truely, great man. I've listened to him for 7-8 years, being about half my life, yes, I'm still in earlier teens, and I can see, think and speak for myself.
Marilyn Manson : Part of, The Speed of Pain
When you want it
It goes away too fast
Times u hate it
It always seems to last
But just remember when you think you're free
The crack inside you fucking heart is me

I wish I could sleep
But I can't lay on my back
Because ther's a knife
For everyday that I've known you

-Possibly the greatest lyricist ever
-Mind blowingly inteligent, puts any interviewer who trys to have a go to shame
-Controversial, yet he will always have a reason for doing whatever he did, and will be able to justify anything he does or condones.
-Exellent painter who is internationally recognized and has had exhibitions all over the world
-Could be an incredibly accurate political and social analysist, judging by his songs and interviews, this is probably due to his journalistic work.
-Style icon fore scene/emo and even british indie kids
Even people who dont like marilyn manson should watch his interviews on youtube, at least to find out how incredibly intelligent he is, and how valid his opinions are on almost any topic. Even though i am only 15, and am what some would call "scene" please dont disregard this. It is completely accurate.
