Marilyn Manson's Top Six NSFW Moments

Marilyn Manson's Top Six NSFW Moments

The man born Brian Warner is actually rather shy. But give him some color contacts, a latex body suit, and a crowd of thousands and that skinny, pasty, quiet Florida boy transforms into Marilyn Manson, one of the most shocking musical entertainers of all time.

After nearly two decades of musical mayhem, he still knows how to push the boundaries of decency. His live shows are legendary. And luckily, he's coming home for a shock-rock show at the Fillmore Miami Beach on Sunday, July 21.

But what exactly should we expect? Let's hope for something just as provocative as these top six NSFW moments.

Simulated Sex

So, Warner is shy. But Manson is not. He regularly struts across the stage in skimpy outfits, unafraid to let a little ass or genital come creeping out. He's also not afraid of playing a little rough and getting a bit dirty. Sometimes, he has guys get up there and simulate sex with him. Y'know, from the back. And sometimes, they'll get down on all fours and do the oral shake. Hey, it's not a show for the sexually squeamish.

Bouncer Ball Play

Bouncer ball play. Most of us probably remember when Manson made headlines for allegedly sexually assaulting a bouncer standing guard near the stage at one of his shows. It was 2002, and as we've discussed, Manson has a penchant for doin' a little midset bump and grind. Well, one day, he must have taken it too far, getting caught up in the moment and wrapping his legs around the head of a very large and angry man. The shock rocker was subsequently chided for allegedly wiping his sweaty genitals all over the accuser's face. Now, that's what we call a splash zone.

 

Lots of Pretty, Pretty Ones

Marilyn is not your traditionally handsome man, but he is quite intelligent -- not to mention rich and famous. We're sure it's a healthy combination of those three attributes that have bagged him ladies like Rose McGowan, Dita Von Teese, and Evan Rachel Wood. And not only does he bag these curvaceous, blood-pumping broads but he gets them to leave the house in some of the most NSFW outfits of all time. Remember McGowan at the '98 MTV Awards in the chain dress that didn't cover anything at all? Yeah. We are still shaking our heads.

"The Dope Show"

Remember when Manson sparked conversation across the country by showing up on television dressed as a gender-bending alien? The 1998 music video for "The Dope Show" was groundbreaking at the time, ushering in his highly successful glam-rock phase, spawning rumors that Manson actually had breast implants, and winning the artist an MTV VMA for Best Cinematography in a Video. It also got him nominated for a Grammy.

 

The Long, Hard Road Out of Hell

If you think Marilyn's girlfriends bare all, he really let it all hang out in his autobiography, The Long, Hard Road Out of Hell. He talked about his grandfather's bestiality, his copious drug usage, his own sexual fetishes and conquests, his friendship with Satanist priest Anton LaVey, and all that cool stuff like how his band formed and how he became friends with the ever-amazing Trent Reznor. Extra fun reading because he's from the FLA.

"Born Villain"

Even today, Manson continues to be one of the freakiest performers on the scene. He totally got under our skin with his Alejandro Jodorowsky-inspired music video for "Born Villain," surprisingly directed by Shia LaBeouf, that nice boy from Transformers. The arty clip features all sorts of strange sex and violence, lots of "unattractive" nudity, and a long pin getting shoved through some lady's face. There are circus freaks and poetry readings and Nazi imagery. It's everything you could want from Manson. And hopefully, his show at the Fillmore comes off like an insane behind-the-scenes "Born Villain" outtake reel.
