Plenty of music-oriented rivalries grab attention, especially where Kanye West and Amber Rose or Nicki Minaj and the world are concerned. However, there’s one beef that hasn’t received nearly enough love, and it involves Justin Bieber and Marilyn Manson. As the resident weirdo Manson junkie, I am happy to oblige with a needless chronological rendering of this hilarious troll fest. Of course, it’s always difficult to tell when Manson is truly irritated with someone or if he’s simply amusing himself. Here, it’s probably a mixture of both vibes.
The “feud” started about a year ago when Bieber was spotted wearing a Manson t-shirt at a Hillsong Church event. This isn’t the usual venue for that sort of attire, and folks noticed. However, Bieber tends to sport metal t-shirts that are readily available at Hot Topic, and he may not even listen to the music. Further, metalheads don’t always appreciate said appropriation of their favorite bands, but Metallica didn’t seem to mind too much.
