Paws up! Claws out! Cat gith alert. Marilyn Manson is a visual artist, so he can appreciate Lady Gaga's look, but he isn't into her music or the fact that she is constantly changing her image. The shock rocker said, "I like the general idea of what she's about. I have a hard time liking her music. It's not my style of music that I like, and I like a lot of music that is in that vein. I like Kylie Minogue sometimes - I like a lot of unusual stuff, I like Justin Timberlake over Lady Gaga, just musically." So yes to Kylie and JT but no to Gaga? Right, we got it.
He continued to explain his stance on Gaga, saying, "I get the whole idea of what she's doing and I appreciate that. I don't think it's a bad thing, I think it's a good thing. At the same time, I don't try to have a different look every single moment because I think it's more ephemeral, it becomes less permanent. People like to identify with one single thing. I'm not one to knock her, she's obviously succeeded in what she's doing. It's not exactly the type of thing that I find myself listening to, but that doesn't mean I don't like her."
Team Manson or Team Gaga?
