Don’t try to break up with Marilyn Manson.
He just might slice his face with a razor blade and consider smashing your skull with a sledgehammer.
Manson talks to Spin magazine — in an interminably long interview about everything — about his recent traumatic breakup with an ex-girlfriend that we're betting is Evan Rachel Wood.
Although he never refers to her by name, we're thinking its gotta be her. December 2008? The timing is right.
Read it and tell us what you think.
]]>I sing about it on "Into the Fire." I say, "If you want to hit bottom, don't bother trying to take me with you." My lowest point was Christmas Day 2008, because I didn't speak to my family. My walls were covered in scrawlings of the lyrics and cocaine bags nailed to the wall. And I did have an experience where I was struggling to deal with being alone and being forsaken and being betrayed by putting your trust in one person, and making the mistake of that being the wrong person. And that's a mistake that everyone can relate to. I made the mistake of trying to, desperately, grasp on and save that and own it. And every time I called her that day — I called 158 times — I took a razor blade and I cut myself on my face or on my hands.
"I look back and it was a really stupid thing to do. This was intentional, this was a scarification, and this was like a tattoo. I wanted to show her the pain she put me through. It was like, 'I want you to physically see what you've done.' It sounds made up but it's completely true and I don't give a shit if people believe it or not. I've got the scars to prove it. I didn't want people to ask me every time I did an interview, "Oh, is this record about your relationship with your ex-girlfriend?" But that damage is part of it, and the song "I Want to Kill You Like They Do in The Movies" is about my fantasies. I have fantasies every day about smashing her skull in with a sledgehammer.”
Yikes. We think Evan Rachel Wood was smart to break up with this damaged dude.
