Marilyn Manson has branded pop star Justin Bieber a “piece of shit” following an incident between the pair last year.
The pop star tried to pass off a $195 sleeveless Manson t-shirt as part of his own line of tour merchandise last year with the line “Bigger Than Satan… Bieber.”
And when the pair came face-to-face for the first time, Manson recalls Bieber made a disparaging remark – and Manson responded by playing a prank on the pop star.
Manson tells Consequence Of Sound: “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.
“The next day I told him I’d be at his soundcheck at Staples Center to do Beautiful People.” Manson, of course, didn’t intend to appear but Bieber “believed that I’d show up, because he was that stupid.”
Manson reveals he took proceeds from sales of the t-shirts and adds: “They didn’t even fight, they were just like, ‘Yeah, we already know, we did wrong, so here’s the money.’”
He adds of Bieber: “He was a real piece of shit in the way he had the arrogance to say that. 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? So stand down, son.”
Manson will release his new studio album Heaven Upside Down on October 6 and launched the single We Know Where You Fucking Live earlier this week.
