Marilyn Manson on Lady Gaga: 'I prefer Justin Timberlake and Kylie'
'Antichrist Superstar' Marilyn Manson has revealed that despite appearing on a remix of Lady Gaga's 'LoveGame', he doesn't really enjoy her music.
Speaking to Digital Spy, Manson explained that he likes the pop genre, but there's something about Gaga's style that he just can't get on board with:
"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 don't know - I like Justin Timberlake over Lady GaGa, just musically. 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."
He added that he doesn't understand her constant need for reinvention although he thinks having a pop icon like Gaga is important:
"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."
