So, the following may sound like veiled jealousy, but I assure you I would never want to attend the Golden Gods Awards. They’re a sham, just like the magazine behind them — an event fueled by greed and ad sales.
At the end of this post, you will find a video of Marilyn Manson performing last night at the Golden Gods, closing the awards show no one gives a true fuck about.
Manson was introduced by Damian Echols, which was kind of cool to see; he’s all rock-starred out now.
Anyways, Manson played three songs, including “Dope Show” and “The Beautiful People.” He sounds fucking awful. I am not sure how that bloated-out rocker ever got a record deal. His voice sounds broken, right? Listen.
At some point, that little slut Taylor Momsen comes out to join Marilyn, and ends up gyrating all over his ball sack. I think he’s definitely fucking her, and that makes me genuinely depressed. There is no reason why Manson should be tapping ass that young.
Then, Manson brings his buddy Johnny Depp out to play guitar on “The Beautiful People” and Manson’s cover of the Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This).” If you can make it through the entire video, you’re a glutton for punishment.
The best part of the video is when the camera pans to all the fat, cheesy, lame-ass old industry types in the audience, with their fucking pink and purple hair. Finally, they are the cool kids at the party — after all those years of being relegated to the outskirts of recognition.
Fuck the Golden Gods. To quote my friend The Goat, “I can’t wait for metal to not be cool any more.”
