Jag har inte koll på den senaste sekundens uppdatering kring den potentiella Marilyn Manson/Lana Del Rey-romansen, men jag vet att Marilyn Manson har grym tjejsmak.
Som bevis för det har jag egentligen bara ex-flickvännen Rose McGowan (hon som beskrivs som ”Satan in heels” i ”Jawbreaker”), samarbetet med Asia Argento (i ”The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things”) samt en intervju som Bruce LaBruce gjort med skådespelerskan Stoya, till tidningen ”Richardsons” femte nummer (fortfarande min favoritkulturtidskrift).
Stoya är smart och krass, med kolsvart hår och hy som nyspilld mjölk och här är ett litet utdrag ur ”Richardson” där Bruce och Stoya pratar om när hon dejtade Manson:
Bruce: What did you call him?
Stoya: I called him either Manson or M, depending on if there were a lot of people around; it’s a little casual to call someone M. Although, when you look at it, it’s a little strange to call someone Manson too.
Bruce: But never Marilyn?
Stoya: No, never Marilyn. He does not like to be called Marilyn.
Bruce: How did you meet?
Stoya: He sent me a myspace message.
Bruce: Did you think it was really him?
Stoya: Not at first. He was saying, “I want to paint you”. I told him to talk to my PR person at Digital, and he said, “Well, I really just want to talk to you.” I thought, if I were a 15-year-old boy with way too much time that’s precisely what I’d be doing, spending hours of my life building a believable myspace profile of a rock star to hit on porn stars.
Bruce: So you thought he might have been an impostor?
Stoya: Yeah. But he said, “Here’s my phone number. Call me. You can ask me whatever you want. I’ll sing one of my songs for you. Whatever I can do to make you believe it’s me.” So I called him from a blocked number and we talked for about an hour. He was so wacky, I said, “Even if you are just some crazy 15-year-old kid, next time I come to LA, I just have to meet you and find out. The next time I went to LA, my dad was with me.
Bruce: Your dad?
Stoya: Yeah, my dad. So we went to meet the alleged Mr. Manson, /…/ in the Hollywood Hills. At the house he opened the door and I said, “Dad, this is the alleged Mr. Manson. Alleged Mr. Manson, this is my dad.” And my father said, “Honey, I think that’s really him,” and decided to that he was going to go wait in the car.
Bruce: Did you see him after that?
Stoya: We were dating for a while. When he was on tour, we were together 24/7. It was intense. /…/ It was just a little too much for me. We flew every day, and I was like, “Dude, I can’t deal with this, I’m sorry. Maybe give me a call when you’re back in America and staying in one place. And PS, I’m not going to quit smoking and I know that you hate that.” /…/ It was fun and we’re still friends.
Bruce: Was he a good lover?
Stoya: He was a very good lover. He was very polite and he was a giver.
Bruce: That’s important, right?
Senaste numret av ”Richardson” är ute nu, och Marilyn Manson släpper skivan ”Born Villain” i slutet på april. Ett smakprov, ”No Reflections”, går att höra här.
