Does Marilyn live in his own home now, meaning does he live at a home that is not one of Johnny’s??
Okay now the article:
In the years that followed, he distanced himself from friends and said: “I became a recluse. I had the windows blacked out, it was freezing cold, and you could never tell whether it was night or day. The backyard was a parking lot for a liquor store where hobos slept. It was a haunted house – haunted by behaviour.”
The first thing he had to change was his schedule. “I used to go to bed at 6am. Now I get up at 6am. I used to think 3am was my peak hour creatively because the wheels were going. But it becomes something that can drive you insane because you can’t sleep.”
The next step was for Marilyn to ditch his favourite tipple – absinthe. As he swigs his less alcoholic alternative, a neat double vodka for breakfast, he explains that despite owning his own range of the stuff, called Mansinthe, he can’t handle its effects.
He says: “The absinthe I was drinking had wormwood, which not only biblically was what God sent down to poison all the sinners, it affects your temporal lobe. It can convince you you’re not
schizophrenic… or that you are.”
Finally, Marilyn bought a house. And the decor sounds very… Manson.
He said: “I fashioned it after the TV show Hannibal, I have a lot of taxidermy, a prosthetic limb collection and a seven-foot tall, 100-year-old skeleton I call Ernie. My cat, Lily White, likes to sleep in his pelvic bone.”
If reports are to be believed, he also owns a canister of Zyklon B gas, the deadly agent used in the gas chambers during the Holocaust, a painting by serial killer John Wayne Gacy Jr, and an abortionist’s chair he has adorned with a beaver rug, given to him by Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.
Marilyn is not just a name-dropper. The Jolie-Pitts are unlikely good friends – he particularly loves the “beautifully handsome” Brad’s love of practical jokes.
But it’s actually another Hollywood star, Johnny Depp, who Manson is best friends with. He’s even godfather to Johnny’s 16-year-old daughter, aspiring actress Lily Rose.
Johnny reintroduced him to Lily Rose two years ago, telling her: “You remember Uncle Manson? He gave you your first pair of heels when you were still in diapers.”
Marilyn dotes on Lily and has been known to help her study and even drive her to school.
Livings on the same estate in Los Angeles, the two bonded over a shared love of music – Depp has even played guitar alongside the rocker.
But there’s more than that to their friendship. Marilyn said: “Whatever’s happening in his life, romantically, professionally… it always seems to sync up.
“We’re always going through the same situation in life. It could be because we both always just want to be kids.”
