Marilyn Manson Says Justin Bieber Has 'Mind Of A Squirrel'

If you thought Marilyn Manson buried the hatchet with Justin Bieber, think again.

In a new interview, the shock rocker described the Canadian pop star as a “girl” with “the mind of a squirrel.” 

Manson’s beef with Biebs began when he found out that his image was being used on merchandise sold during Bieber’s Purpose world tour. Although both sides reportedly came to terms, Bieber did little to smooth things over when the two men ran into each other at a bar.

“I saw a little girl in a pink hoodie with blond hair, and it turns out to be Bieber,” Manson told Billboard.

“I sit down, and I say, ‘Hey, so you wore my shirt and everything onstage.’ He was one of those touchy people that hit you when they talk, and he comes up to about d**k height. Then he goes, ‘I made you relevant again.’”

Manson told Consequence of Sound: “He was a real piece of s*** in the way he had the arrogance to say that.”

Appearing on The Howard Stern Show, Manson said he received an apologetic text from Bieber — to which he replied: “You are just being you. No beef here. We are cool. And don’t apologize. You weren’t an a**h***. They asked if you were and I sort of agreed. I wasn’t out to get you.”

In the new interview, Manson joked about Bieber’s relationship with Hillsong Church and its leader Carl Lentz.

“Well he’s in some sort of sexual religious cult with an Asian version of Dave Navarro, apparently,” Manson said on The Scully Show. “The guy doesn’t wear a shirt.”

Manson insisted he is not at war with the pop star. “No, I don’t like to fight with girls, so I don’t want to fight with Justin Bieber.”

Asked why Bieber thought he could get away with selling T-shirts with Manson’s face, the rocker replied: “I don’t know, because I don’t know how to use the mind of a squirrel. So I’m not really sure exactly what he’s thinking.”
