Marilyn Manson

Rock Musician

Born: 5 January 1969
Birthplace: Canton, Ohio
Best known as: Whitefaced shock-rock singer of Antichrist Superstar

Name at birth: Brian Warner

Marilyn Manson is the stage name of rock singer Brian Warner, who fronts a long-running band of the same name. As Marilyn Manson, Warner wears androgynous white makeup, long hair, and red or black lipstick for spooky gothic effect while playing "industrial metal" rock. His act mixes satanic images and themes of rebellion and death, though it has never been exactly clear if Manson is a true believer or just pursuing a colorful show-business shtick. The group's albums have included Portrait of an American Family (1994), Antichrist Superstar (1996), Mechanical Animals (1998), The Golden Age of Grotesque (2003), Eat Me, Drink Me (2007) and The High End of Low (2009).

Extra credit: Warner reportedly chose his stage name by combining the names of actress Marilyn Monroe and convict Charles Manson... From 1999 to 2001 he was engaged to actress Rose McGowan... He married his longtime girlfriend Heather Sweet on 3 December 2005 in Ireland; Sweet is a burlesque dancer whose stage name is Dita Von Teese. Sweet filed for divorce in December of 2006 after just over a year of marriage, and the divorce was finalized in 2007.
