2009[edit]

December 2009[edit]

I want to make clear that, aside from the wasted legal fees, in no way did I pay off the person that stood behind a keyboard--pretending to play music other artists in this band wrote. And I would not piss on Pogo if he was on fire. Thee end. Or is it? Let's wait until all the really bad things I covered up for him are suddenly uncovered. I got a far more severe type of karma for traitors and people that owe me, legally alot more than what I wasted tolerating your rape of a band you never deserved to be in. M

  • ContactMusic.com confirmed that Manson and former keyboardist Bier had reportedly settled out of court on December 11, 2009, prompting Manson to release two statements on the band's MySpace profile that month.

Interscope/nothing to offer- records did not drop Marilyn Manson. When the "do I have to suck your mentally retarded dick for money?" clause ran out. And I was able to choose to be with whatever company, if any, had the brain big enough to understand what I do... I said that I would prefer to not be ass-raped by idiots from this time forward. So anyone who wants to revise history or suck intercope/nothing good records can find the shotguns in the sporting goods section at walmart. Insert barrel. Etc. MM out.
