Shock rocker Marilyn Manson has really shocked all of us this time around! Get this: Manson has collaborated with Avril Lavigne on a song that will be part of her fifth studio album. This news is more shocking than when he announced that he is the NEW face of Saint Laurent (a luxury fashion house).
"The record's really diverse," Lavigne told Billboard.com. "We've got these pop-rock tunes, and then these piano ballads with orchestras.
"I have a heavier song that Marilyn Manson's on called 'Bad Girl', and then I've got a song called 'Hello Kitty' that sounds like nothing I've done before."
Dear Marilyn Manson, what were you thinking? Perhaps Lavigne offered him a lifetime supply of Absynth? Or does Manson not care about his credibility?
At least Manson will be teaming up with Alice Cooper for the "Masters of Madness" tour June 1 through 28.
Here is the initial list of tour dates:
- 06/04 - Salt Lake City, UT - USANA Amphitheater
- 06/23 - Pittsburgh, PA - Stage AE
- 06/25 - St. Charles, MO - Family Arena
- 06/28 - Rockford, IL - TBA
