Marilyn Manson – The Beautiful People

Marilyn Manson – The Beautiful People

On September 13–14, 2002, his first art show, The Golden Age of Grotesque, was held at the Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions center. Manson revealed a series of 20 paintings in 2010 entitled Genealogies of Pain, an exhibition showcased at Vienna’s Kunsthalle gallery, which the artist collaborated on with David Lynch.



Manson and guitarist Scott Putesky formed Marilyn Manson & the Spooky Kids following conversations at the Reunion Room in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in 1989.

The name was later shortened to Marilyn Manson. While with The Spooky Kids, Manson was involved with Jeordie White (also known as Twiggy Ramirez) and Stephen Gregory Bier Jr. (also known as Madonna Wayne Gacy) in two side-projects: Satan on Fire, a faux-Christian metal ensemble where he played bass guitar, and drums in Mrs. Scabtree, a collaborative band formed with White and then girlfriend Jessicka (vocalist with the band Jack Off Jill) as a way to combat contractual agreements that prohibited Marilyn Manson from playing in certain clubs.

In 1993, the band drew the attention of Trent Reznor. Reznor produced their 1994 debut album, Portrait of an American Family and released it on his Nothing Records label.

The band began to develop a cult following, which grew larger on the Downward Spiral Tour that featured Nine Inch Nails and Jim Rose Circus along with the release of Smells Like Children in 1995. That EP yielded the band’s first big MTV hit with “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This),” a cover of the 1983 Eurythmics hit. Antichrist Superstar (co-produced by Trent Reznor) was an even greater success.

In the U.S. alone, three of the band’s albums have been awarded two platinum and three more went gold, and the band has had seven releases debut in the top ten, including two number-one albums. Manson first worked as a producer with the band Jack Off Jill.

He helped name the band and produced most of the band’s early recordings, and also played guitar on the song “My Cat” and had the band open most of his South Florida shows. Manson later wrote the liner notes to the band’s album Humid Teenage Mediocrity 1992–1996, a collection of early Jack Off Jill recordings.

Manson has appeared as a guest performer on DMX’s album Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood and on Godhead’s 2000 Years of Human Error album – the only album released on his vanity label Posthuman. In 2011 it was revealed that Manson was to appear on the singer Skylar Grey’s album Invinsible on the track entitled “Can’t Haunt Me”. Manson released his eighth studio album, Born Villain, in May 2012.

On November 10, 2014, Manson posted via his official Facebook page that his ninth studio album, The Pale Emperor, would be released on January 20, 2015.

On August 15, 2015, Manson had New Orleans brass ensemble the Soul Rebels perform “Beautiful People” with him live in Japan at the Summer Sonic Music Festival.

Shooter Jennings’ album “Countach (For Giorgio)” features Manson performing guest vocals on a cover of David Bowie’s “Cat People (Putting Out Fire)”. The album was released on February 26, 2016.
