Marilyn Manson

American singer, songwriter, actor, painter, and writer.

Brian Hugh Warner (born January 5, 1969), known professionally as Marilyn Manson, is an American singer, songwriter, actor, painter, and writer. He is known for his controversial stage personality and image as the lead singer of the band of the same name, which he co-founded with guitarist Daisy Berkowitz in 1989 and of which he remains the only constant member. Like the other founding members of the band, his stage name was formed by combining and juxtaposing the names of two opposing American cultural icons: a sex symbol and an infamous criminal; in Manson's case, actress Marilyn Monroe and cult leader Charles Manson.

Manson is best known for music released in the 1990s, such as the albums Portrait of an American Family (1994), Antichrist Superstar (1996) and Mechanical Animals (1998) which earned him a reputation in mainstream media as a controversial figure and negative influence on young people when combined with his public image.

In the U.S. alone, three of the band's albums have been awarded platinum status and three more went gold, and the band has had eight releases debut in the top 10, including two No. 1 albums. Manson has been ranked at No. 44 on the list of the "Top 100 Heavy Metal Vocalists" by Hit Parader and, along with his band, has been nominated for four Grammy Awards–Manson himself earned an additional Grammy nomination for his work on Kanye West's Donda. Manson made his film debut as an actor in David Lynch's Lost Highway (1997), and has since appeared in a variety of minor roles and cameos. In 2002, his first art show, The Golden Age of Grotesque, was held at the Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions center.


From December 2006 to October 2008, Manson dated young actress Evan Rachel Wood. From March to December 2009, he dated an American pornographic actress and model, Stoya. In December 2009, he resumed relations with Evan Rachel Wood, and in January 2010 he proposed to her, to which she agreed. In August 2010, the engagement was canceled due to disagreements.

In 2001, Manson met burlesque dancer, model and costume designer Dita Von Teese. In 2004, he proposed to her, at the end of 2005 they got married. The wedding took place in one of the palaces of Ireland, in the style of the 1930s. 2 years later, von Teese announced a divorce, citing "irreconcilable differences" as the reason. "Heavy drinking" and Manson's aloof behavior have also been cited as a reason for the split. The decision to divorce was made by the Los Angeles Supreme Court on December 27, 2007.
In 1998, Rose McGowan began dating, with whom he was subsequently engaged, but in early 2001 the engagement was terminated.
Manson dated Missy Romero from 1992 to 1997.
