  • - With music nowadays, it's empty, and it's lifeless.

  • But this is-- even though it's something

  • I wouldn't listen to on my own time,

  • it's interesting how his artistry is important to him.

  • ♪ (punk rock music) ♪

  • - (FBE) So Marilyn Manson is known

  • for always being on the cutting edge of shock

  • and has even said, "My point on Earth is chaos."

  • Do you think that this persona that Manson puts on

  • has helped his music career or hurt it?

  • - Well, if that's what he's going for,

  • then it's definitely helped his music career.

  • - I don't think he'd be where he was today

  • if he wasn't as crazy as he was.

  • - It's there to get people very angry,

  • being like, "What is this?"

  • But then it gets you talking about it.

  • - Definitely helped.

  • I really appreciate him knowing who he is

  • enough to be comfortable with it,

  • enough to produce stuff that he likes.

  • - In one way of making it so that

  • the people who do like his persona and all that, they're happy,

  • then it definitely does get from there.

  • But to a wider audience,

  • it definitely loses him a good amount of sales

  • because not many people

  • are gonna want to get into something so outrageously different.

  • - Controversy is his thing, I guess.

  • So there's definitely people who don't like him
