Justin Bieber to Marilyn Manson: I Made You Relevant Again
7

During a recent CoS interview, Marilyn Manson said Justin Bieber said he made him relevant again by using his t-shirt.

The source reports:

"Last summer, a repurposed Manson t-shirt featuring the phrase 'Bigger Than Satan... Bieber' was sold for $195 at luxury retailer Barneys.

"At the time, the t-shirt's designer, Fear of God, was adamant that Manson had given him and Bieber permission to 'reinterpret' the original image. However, in a forthcoming interview with Consequence of Sound, Manson offers a different account.

"Manson says that when he first met Bieber 'he was [already] wearing the shirt that had his name on my shirt, and he said to me, 'I made you relevant again.'' 'Bad mistake to say to me,' Manson adds.

"The next day I told him I'd be at his soundcheck at Staples Center to do 'Beautiful People,'' Manson recounts, at which point Bieber confessed that the t-shirt 'was his idea.' Manson never intended to perform with Bieber, but 'he believed that I'd show up, because he was that stupid.'

"Manson says he eventually 'took all the proceeds from those shirts from him. They didn't even fight, they were just like, 'yea, we already know, we did wrong, so here's the money.'

"'He was a real piece of shit in the way he had the arrogance to say that,' Manson says of Bieber. 'He was a real touchy-feely guy, too, like, 'yo yo bro!' and touches you when he's talking. I'm like, you need to stand down, you're dick height on me, ok? [Laughs] Alright? So stand down, son."

    might just be me, but I found this a little confusing to read/follow Also at Justins current age singing something like 'baby' with a bunch of underage dancers is just creepy as hell....that picture is pure cringe

    How old is he? Is he old enough to beat the shit out of yet? And if so, how is he not constantly in a hospital? It makes no sense.

    He has money to pay for bodyguards. Otherwise he wouldn't be able to walk any longer.

    He's 23 now. So if you think you can catch him without any bodyguards and it brings you happiness, go for it haha

    Naw man... I'm not a violent person at all. I would never beat the shit out of Beiber. I'm just surprised that other more violent people aren't beating his ass regularly.

    what's the deal with people like this just fixated on using metal artists' t-shirt designs?? I mean, yeah those shirts are fucking awesome but don't hey have their own shit to wear?

    Historically metal artist have some of the most eye popping and impressive graphics to go along with the music. That being said, yes, get your own F'ing art people!!!!!

    Note: by "people like this" i mean pop singers and such like the kardashians n stuff

     Metal bands should start wearing Mariah Carrey or Boys II Men shirts  as retaliation.

    I dislike them both quite equally. They are both really full of shit. I think this story is not 100% genuine. It's pretty funny that Marilyn Manson is complaining about arrogance though.

    Manson shoulda facefucked him, but he's probably had plenty of that off the church anyway.

    Marilyn Manson changed the image game back in 2000. He was at the top of headlines for his look. Since then nobody has come forward to take that mantel. No one. For that he's been relevant ever since.

    The T-shirt was sold at luxury retailer, Barneys... because nothing says "luxury" quite like a Marylin Manson T-shirt.

    Shut the fuck up, little narcissistic ken doll. You are famous for your appearance and your music will age like milk. I'm not even that big of a Marilyn Manson fan but he's got more talent in one finger than Bieber has in his entire body.
