Although Marilyn Manson has feuded with other rockers in the scene, it was possibly the first time he feuded with a pop star: Justin Bieber. When Bieber decided to wear a Manson shirt on stage during a live concert in 2017, the two names clashed. However, the ‘The Beautiful People’ singer was not pleased with the Canadian pop star’s performance attire. So he decided to confront Bieber, and the rest was… chaos. The dispute was further fueled in 2017 when Manson spoke with Billboard about another rapper, Lil Uzi Vert, wearing a ‘Marilyn Manson’ printed shirt. While Manson seemed unconcerned about Uzi wearing his shirt, when it came to Bieber doing the same, he opted to spit fire: “As for Justin Bieber, he was wearing my shirt onstage, but not in the Lil Uzi way. ” I ran across him in some posh bar frequented by celebs – a term I loathe. “I saw a little girl in a pink hoodie with blond hair who turned out to be Justin Bieber.” He went on to describe how he addressed the Canadian singer: “I take a seat and say, ‘Hey, so you wore my shirt and everything onstage.
‘” He was one of those touchy folks who struck you with their words, and he was around dick height. He then says, ‘I made you relevant again.'” Following that sarcastic comment, Manson explained how he decided to mislead Bieber: “I respond, ‘That was a great idea you had about doing [my song] ‘The Beautiful People’ at your show tomorrow at the Staples Center,'” And he says, ‘Yeah, it was,’ not realizing that I had just made up a concept.” The rocker then detailed how his revenge plan went down without a hitch: “When his tour manager sat down, I asked, ‘When is sound check tomorrow?'” What time should I arrive? Because we’ll be doing ‘Beautiful People.’ Obviously, I didn’t show up when 4 p.m. rolled around the next day.” However, the idea did not appear to end there: “It was nice, though, because I didn’t have to sue his company for making the shirts with his name and my face on them.” ‘We know we’re wrong here; just take as many bucks as you want,’ they said. So there was a double ‘f*ck you,’ but it wouldn’t have happened had he not stated, ‘I made you relevant again.'” So, despite the pair’s public spat, Bieber chose to settle the feud and apologized to Manson for offending him. Then, their rivalry seemed to fade, and the two sides did not participate in any further arguments.
