Marilyn Manson praises ‘dangerous’ Rihanna and calls her videos ‘badass’
Marilyn Manson has praised Rihanna in a new interview, describing her as one of the most “dangerous” artists at the moment.
Manson was speaking on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show when he said: “Rihanna [is] dangerous. I had this conversation with [director] Tom Wyatt, prior to this video coming out. He said, ‘who do you want to compete with like in music and things like that?’ I said, ‘Rihanna.’ [Rihanna’s] ‘Bitch Better Have My Money’ video? That’s a hardcore video.”
“All of her videos are,” Manson added. “I love that video the most because A, it’s hardcore, B, because it puts a bitch having her money type, and C, because Max Mickelson of Hannibal the TV show, my favourite show, is in it. And then, D, if I’m still doing letters; that she swings a girl naked back and forth, gives her crack, kills her and has a yacht, she has a flare gun. And somehow my video is more offensive?”
