The Birth of the Rib Rumor
In the world of rock and metal, where tales of debauchery and excess are as common as guitar solos, few rumors have persisted as tenaciously as the one about Marilyn Manson and his supposedly missing rib. Let’s dive deep into this rib-tickling (pun intended) tale and see if there’s any meat to it.
In the late ’90s, whispers began to circulate about Marilyn Manson, the shock-rock icon, and a certain surgical procedure. The rumor? Manson had a rib removed to, well, facilitate self-fellatio. Despite Manson’s repeated attempts to quash this myth, it’s proven to be as hard to kill as a cockroach in a nuclear blast.
The rumor? Manson had a rib removed to, well, facilitate self-fellatio.
During a cheeky Q&A session with Q Magazine, a brave soul named Keith decided to confront the man himself. “For years, it was rumored that you’d had a rib removed to achieve self-fellatio. Obviously, that’s nonsense, but have you ever tried to suck your own cock?” Keith inquired. Manson, never one to be caught off guard, retorted with his signature blend of sarcasm and defiance, “Wow! Does Keith get money if I answer this? No comment. Keith, you cunt!” Far from putting the rumor to bed, this evasive answer only added more logs to the fire.
More Than Just Ribs
But let’s not pretend the rib tale is the only skeleton in Manson’s closet. The shock-rocker has been the epicenter of numerous controversies. One particularly dark whisper involved a “rape room” in his former Hollywood Hills mansion. Singer-songwriter Phoebe Bridgers, during a trip down memory lane, mentioned this so-called “rape room”, which she initially brushed off as a distasteful joke.
Despite Manson’s attempts to debunk the rib rumor, it seems to have taken on a life of its own. This enduring urban legend underscores the often blurry line between an artist’s onstage persona and their offstage antics.
In conclusion, while we may never know the full truth behind the rib rumor, one thing is certain: Marilyn Manson knows how to keep us talking.
