Last summer, Justin Bieber began selling shirts with Marilyn Manson's face on them and the message "Bigger Than Satan … Bieber.” At the time, the designer said they had Manson's permission. No so, according to the rocker himself.
“[When I first met Bieber] he was [already] wearing the shirt that had his name on my shirt," Manson remembers, "and he said to me, ‘I made you relevant again.'"
“He was a real piece of s**t in the way he had the arrogance to say that,” Manson says of Bieber. “He was a real touchy-feely guy, too, like, ‘yo yo bro!’ and touches you when he’s talking. I’m like, you need to stand down, you’re d**k height on me, ok? Alright? So stand down, son.”
Eventually Biebz handed over all the proceeds from the shirt to Manson, without a fight. According to the rocker, "they were just like, ‘yea, we already know, we did wrong, so here’s the money.’"
Justin Bieber did something similar w Marilyn Manson, except he had permission. It'd be cool if another artist could pull it off properly. pic.twitter.com/36DQSBBPiz— Chris (@byalienmeans) July 2, 2017
