Say what you want about Marilyn Manson, the guy doesn't deserve this harsh treatment from David Letterman. Awkward!
That's what Letterman is about, trying to eat people alive, everyone knows that's his schtick. But, unfortunately, he didn't even manage that here, it was just plain boring and bad.
or grandpa from Iowa trying to chat up one of your goth friends.
Nowadays, Letterman is very polite, no matter who is guest is. Maybe Manson didn't get eaten alive, but the condescension is palpable.
largely made up of older guys like me and I thought it was hilarious. Manson looks like a naughty little boy who just got caught jerking off into his mommy's panties.
WTF was he doing there, then? It's not like investigative reporter Dave Letterman ambushed him with a microphone when poor Marilyn was walking from his house to his car.
When an attention whore is doing the talkshow circuit (i.e. marketing, part of attention whore business), then they should be ready for anything. And if a lame "interview" is what it takes for people to put up a clip on youtube and even get mentioned on the Alibi website, then poor Marilyn got what he wanted. Instead of a boring name from the past, he's a boring name in the here'n'now.
The brand is in your brain now, so you're ready to go out and buy the product. He has Dave to thank for that.
Has he lost his IPod? He hasn't stolen a song lately and sung it in a "scary" voice for his latest release. How about a Spears tune?
