Goth shock rocker Marilyn Manson has decided to take on a directing gig.
He’s signed on to direct a music video for rapper and Chris Brown pal Kevin McCall (a.k.a., K-Mac).
McCall tells Vibe, a publication I rarely peruse: “I’ve been doing a lot of work for Marilyn Manson, I’ve been trying to venture out into that crowd. It’s real different.”
Different? Why do I find it funny he said that?
”He’s such a visual genius. He’s gonna direct a couple of videos for me. I actually met him through Gucci Mane, which is weird and Gucci Mane is my big bro, we do a lot of work together, so it’s so funny to meet such a rock icon through a rap dude. It just shows you the power of music. It could really unite people.”
Manson has himself confirmed the news.
“This may seem confusing. It’s almost like getting punched in the face. Or someone saying, ‘hello,’ when you expected ‘goodbye’…
“I met this gentleman,” writes Manson, “and what happens next is for me to know and for everyone to find out. This video was made before our collaboration, but I felt the need to share it. What does it all mean? Is it just mean…or me? It’s about to get very…”
Manson has already collaborated with Avril Lavigne on her next album.
Rock icon? More like pop icon.
