Still from “The Beautiful People” music video, directed by Floria Sigismondi

I found this little nugget a while back, and in light of the fact that the artist known as Marilyn Manson is currently on tour I thought it’d be a good time to share it. I’m not a huge Marilyn Manson fan – although I do still love “Beautiful People” – but I’ve always found him fascinating as an artist. I appreciate musicians who – like Bjork or The White Stripes or Erykah Badu – take into account the entire visual presentation of their music along with the sonic presentation.

As it turns out, makeup has been a part of his daily life since well before becoming a performer;

MARILYN MANSON: My mom used to put her wigs and lipstick on me when I was little. I have one weird picture of me as a toddler with an unlit cigarette in my mouth, wearing her blonde wig and a diaper, sitting on the couch. Wonder how I ended up here.

Ok, then.
