Who was marilyn manson dating
A rain of silver tinsel was released over the crowd to create a tarred-and-feathered effect.We must have looked frightening, and ridiculous, as we wandered into the night. At the time, Brian Hugh Warner (the performer known as Marilyn Manson) would have been 30 years old and freshly engaged to 25-year-old geek chic indie actress Rose Mc Gowen. I managed to find online and played the album from start to finish, while speed-reading up on the tour.With many fans sporting full PVC, fainting spells were a real threat.It was challenging to feel badass in broad daylight with the smells of cotton candy and wholesome roller coaster vomit sailing across the parking lot.They were nondescript, rentals unmarked by airbrushed lightening bolts or upside-down crosses, but they were obviously for the tour.
I eyeballed the small group waiting outside the theatre: a few chunky platform boots, a coat with far too many buckles to be practical, but at a glance, the crowd could have been there for Phantom of the Opera.
My then-sorta-boyfriend, a lanky acidhead with minimal literacy and really great cheekbones, puffed ‘Ivory’ pressed powder from my Cover Girl compact on his forehead, attempting to maintain a matte pallor in the sweats of a heavy leather trench.
When the gates opened, we rushed for the shade like vampires.
In the mosh pit, we waited to see if Manson’s stilt-clad body, slumped over an oversized podium, would recover from the performative shotgun blast that sent a surge of fake blood into the audience.
A sudden flood of light showed the girl in front of me. The blood hung wet in her blonde, braided buns, which were pinned up like horns on a teenaged cherub.
