You can hardly recognize some of these musicians back when they were teens. It shows the dramatic transformation some celebs go through
(ahem Marilyn Manson, Madonna), although others look virtually the same, like Katy Perry above.
The photos remind me of the Skrillex evolution we saw last week. I don’t think my high school pictures are so unrecognizable but I will say I rocked a pretty intense side bang.
While we are keeping our ear to the ground for Lana Del Rey’s debut album, “Born to Die” and the full length from Azealia Banks, there are some artists we really wish would quit while they’re ahead.
As posted on Cracked, here are the 7 least anticipated albums of 2012.
7. Insane Clown Posse – “The Might Death Pop!”
6. Scorpion – “Comeback”
5. Adam Lambert – “Trespassing”
4. Willow Smith – “Willow: You Think You Know Me”
3. Bret Michaels – “Get Your Rock On”
2. Marilyn Manson – “Born Villian”
1. Scott Stapp – “Somewhere in the Middle of Love and Lust”
Just in time for Halloween, a company called E-Poll conducted a survey to find out who gives America the creeps. The poll surveyed 1100 Americans and asked them to rate celebrities based on 100 different possible attributes. The following list indicates what percentage of the sample group checked off “creepy” for each celebrity.
1. Marilyn Manson..69%
2. Casey Anthony…57%
3. O.J. Simpson….56%
4. Spencer Prat….49%
5. Nadya Suleman…41%
6. Charlie Sheen…34%
7. Eliot Spitzer…34%
8. Woody Allen…..31%
9. Tim Burton……31%
10. Jesse James…..30%
Topping the list of creepy celebrities is a man who allegedly had a rib surgically removed in order to perform oral sex on himself (Marilyn Manson). Also on the list are two of America’s most famous accused murderers (Casey Anthony, O.J. Simpson) and a warlock from planet Awesome (Charlie Sheen). For the most part, the list is fairly predictable. The only real surprise is a neurotic film -maker who fell in love with his adopted daughter (Woody Allen). Perhaps that’s not as surprising as one may think.
Surprisingly, none of the cast members from Jersey Shore made the list. (Personally I thought The Situation was a shoe-in for the top spot.) None of the Guidos or Guidettes even broke the the top ten but somehow Eliot Spitzer has a strong hold on seventh spot.
In addition, the same survey also determined which celebrities have the most marketing potential. Of the top ten listed above, Spencer Pratt from The Hills and ‘Octomom’ Nadya Suleman proved to have the least marketing potential, demonstrating that America will gladly watch these idiots but probably wouldn’t purchase a product they endorse.
These statistics are pretty reassuring. Americans show they haven’t lost the ability to think rationally and I agree with them. I would never purchase anything from a psychopath with a frozen sperm fetish. Nor would I buy anything from a delusional moron still caught in a shame spiral after he and his Franken-Bride were last seen on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.
Well done, America.
This time it maybe for good. Shock rocker Marilyn Manson and girlfriend Evan Rachel Wood have broken up and ended their engagement last week, reports People.
Manson was spotted out Saturday night partying it up in L.A with a group of people including a brunette named Twiggy and former Playmate of the Year Colleen Shannon.
“They just broke off their engagement, and he needed a night out with friends,” says another source.
The couple had been on and off for the past four years. Manson proposed to Wood during a January show in Paris.
According to MuchMusic.com, shock rock legend Marilyn Manson and his on-again-off-again girlfriend, Evan Rachel Wood are happily engaged.
Manson popped the question on January 5th – his 41st birthday.
And, like everything else shocking about Marilyn Manson is the 19 year age gap between him and Wood.
Lady Gaga sure knows how to sell albums, even if it’s one you already purchased.
A deluxe edition of The Fame Monster hit shelves this week, featuring a spread of high-class nude photos by none other than celebrity photographer, David LaChapelle, according to The Daily Mail UK.
One of the photos features Gaga, completely nude, in the arms of Kanye West as he stares blankly into the distance while a volcano is erupting behind them. Another shows her completely nude, strapped to an electric generator with strategically placed sparks erupting from her hands and nether regions.
Nerd Games (Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love RPGs)
You start work at a new office. You meet someone on the subway or a streetcar, and conversation starts. For someone like me (men in their early twenties), mentioning to someone you play video games still has a bit of a nerdy connotation to it. Although video games have definitely become a mainstream form of entertainment for boys and girls alike and even more significantly men and women, if you ask someone you just met if they’ve played Fallout 3 or Oblivion, you run the risk of sounding like a nerd (not that there’s anything wrong with that). You may even come across as childish, although it’s become popular opinion that video games can and are played by men and women of all ages. All said though, it’s not really too big of a deal.
Now try the exact same situation, but instead of asking your new-found friend if they have played the new Call of Duty or Batman: Arkham Asylum you ask them if they know what Dungeons and Dragons is. Completely different story. Telling someone in 2009 that you play Dungeons and Dragons is like telling someone in 1989 that you play video games – or Dungeons and Dragons, for that matter.
Marilyn Manson prepares to release his upcoming album, The High End of Low, in stores Tuesday May 26th. With the single, “Arma-Goddamn-Motherfu*kin-Geddon” already hitting modern and rock radio and the upcoming Mayhem Fest tour, Manson is sure to deliver once again.

The music world is buzzing about “Across The Universe” star Evan Rachel Wood’s voice.
Wood wowed audiences with her renditions of the Beatles classics like “Blackbird” and “If I Fell” (90 per cent of the songs in the film were recorded live as the cameras rolled) and is now reportedly close to signing a recording contract with Interscope records. She is still finalizing negotiations.
The label also represents Marilyn Manson, Wood’s boyfriend.
