Marilyn Manson Reveals Why He Poured Sugar On His Private With Grunge Icon


Courtney Love and Marilyn Manson recorded Rick and Morty DVD commentary, Vice reports.

“I recently experimented with pouring Equal, the sugar substitute, on my genitals and had an oral [romantic] encounter, and it made me have ball-and-dick brûlée,” Marilyn Manson tells Courtney Love, apropos of nothing. “I regretted it automatically because I couldn’t get it off. Because I don’t like to shower.”

The sometime collaborators are given free reign to react to the season three premiere, “The Rickshank Redemption,” unguided and uncensored, and the two rock icons certainly deliver. During the episode, they cover a range of topics, some of them actually in the orbit of the Rick and Morty episode at hand, but often not.

A brief rundown includes: 1) Marilyn’s penchant for making women he’s hooking up with eat a Plan B pill “the night before,” which he calls “Plan A,” 2) The myriad uses of duct tape, one of which is inexplicably [protection] according to Manson, 3) The virtue of animating characters with five fingers like Rick and Morty instead of a Simpsons-esque four, 4) an appetite suppressant called Ayds that tanked in the 1980s, and 5) which of the pair’s privates would be easier to draw with an Etch-e-Sketch (they agree on Manson’s).

“Everyone needs a Morty in their life,” Manson says while watching the character cope with his family. “Someone to just abuse constantly. I always like to keep a few Mortys around.”

“Yeah…” Love agrees.

“I think Rick has an empty soul,” Love later says as they watch him outwit an alien cop. The two laugh mightily, and Manson points out the irony. “Says Courtney! Says Courtney to Manson!”
