Marilyn Manson is so controversial!!!!!!!

Marilyn Manson, Madonna, Eminem, these are some names that used to be controversial back in the 90s (or earlier), but now they’re middle aged and don’t really ‘shock’ anymore, only embarrass themselves.

It’s a sad thing when these semi-havebeens (a word I just invented) still try hard to ‘shock’ the world with their oh so controversial crap, but all they do is make everyone point and laugh. It’s 2012, guys, let it go.

Case in point — Marilyn Manson. Yes, if we were in 1999, chances are some news station somewhere in America would talk about how controversial he is and how parents are gonna boycott his album. Unfortunately it’s not 1999, and people either don’t know who he is, don’t care, or both. So all the bad press he was complaining about to Michael Moore a decade ago is gone. Shouldn’t he be happy about it?

I guess not, cause this is what happened yesterday:

“I just went through the LAX security line with Marilyn Manson. He had “FUCK” scrawled in large letters across the bottom half of his face, with what appeared to be a grease pencil. As we each removed our boots in the security line, he kindly explained that it was not directed at me or anyone else in the airport, but rather at the paparazzi, so that they couldn’t sell any photos of him that they took. He was really apologetic about it, and covered his mouth around young children while apologizing to their parents for exposing their child to profanity.”

Read full thing here.

Well if he was apologetic about it, that makes it okay, right? Check out some photos for yourself: eins, zwei, drei

The plan worked though, because the plan was to make the headlines again and get some oh so shocking photos of himself out there. And it kinda happened, only no one cares. It’s not like he looks like a middle aged dude who passed out at a frat party or anything.

Then he tweeted about it, as you do…

Keep it classy, Brian.

Serj has an app

Serj is down with the Apple technology, son. Whaaaat? Wesside!

Apparently he has an app out for the iPhone, iPad and iPod (the hipster gadget trio) called ‘I Am Serj.’ Because he is Serj, and it is his app. Is it an app that sends push notes to your device and sets reminders about the Armenian genocide? Nope, it’s music-related.

You can watch a video of Serj playing with his app after the jump. But I have one question…


Papa Roach singer has vocal problems

Papa Roach lead singer Jacoby Shaddix has lost his vocal abilities… But that didn’t stop him from forming Papa Roach in 1993. However, now he has some more vocal problems, and people who still live in 1999 are worried.

Here’s what Jacoby has to say about it:

I think I’ll be all right. I’ve got a speech and vocal therapist at the current time to learn how to sing through this and work through this and take care of myself. Really it’s just a matter of having a little bit more discipline than I’m used to, you know, as far as vocal rest and warm ups and cool downs and all that kind of stuff.

Cut my throat into pieces,
This is my last resort
Suffocation, but still singing
Don’t give a fuck if Alex’s ears are still bleeding

Marty Friedman has a job. No, not at Mickey D’s

Marty Friedman lives in Japan now, because apparently it’s easy to get laid there if you’re white, so no further explanation needed.

But aside from bringing the luckus to the radies (oh snap! racism!111), he’s also behind the number one album in the country — called ‘Gift of Smap.’

You’re probably wondering what Smap means. Well, apparently it’s a pop group.

The song is ‘LA+Love And Peace’. I have played guitar on a few No. 1s before, but this is my first songwriting No. 1 anywhere! The lyrics were written by Satomi, who wrote the fantastic ‘Yuki No Hana’, which I covered on my first ‘Tokyo Jukebox’ album.

Explained Friedman, even though no one asked him to.

There is so much WTF coming from Japan, it’s not even funny. At least Marty has a job, right?


Corey Taylor can’t remember his own shows

It seems Corey and I have something in common: Neither of us thinks Slipknot shows are worth remembering…

After fainting on stage last month, Corey is now saying he doesn’t remember finishing the show and just remembers waking up afterwards with his wife and band colleague trying to take care of him. Sounds like the premise for a bad porn film, if you ask me…

I basically blacked out for the last two songs, but I finished the show. I have no memory of the last two songs. I woke up backstage with an oxygen mask on and Chris Fehn taking my shoes off — which is very weird — and my wife making sure I was okay. And I immediately started freaking out, thinking, ‘Oh my God, we had to cut the show short.’ And she was like, ‘No, you finished it.’ And I was like, ‘Excuse me, I did what?’ That’s terrifying in a weird way. It makes me go back and think, ‘How many other shows have I finished where I have no idea what happened?‘”

Read full article here. Video after the jump.

He must have been terrified waking up and hearing he inflected ear pain on the audience two more times before passing out.

Joking aside, hopefully the guy is okay, cause the only time people associate ‘fainting’ and nu-metal is when they’re talking about Linkin Park. Get well soon brother.
