Marilyn Manson Has Beef With Wes Borland
In person, Marilyn Manson may just be one of the sharpest dudes we’ve ever met, and man, can he make you laugh. The same can be said for Limp Bizkit‘s Wes Borland, who actually played as part of Manson’s touring band last summer; he’s a good egg, salt of the Earth. So, we’re not quite sure what to make of the growing beef between the two.
Manson started it, and, according to Kerrang!, Wes has tried to put an end to it. But in this age of Twittering or Tweeting, it’s likely the nastiness isn’t over yet.
The shock rocker fired the first attack, saying that Borland’s decision to return to the Bizkit “forever eradicated my feelings on his choices in life as an artist.” When asked why he thinks Borland reunited with his former band, Manson said, “That is what I find myself asking when I urinate sometimes. He said he would never go back. If the reason is money, then I’d rather roll up a $5 note and shove it up my urethra. I’d rather set my dick on fire than join something that I hated.”
Ouch. Well, Borland has responded, saying that he ditched Manson because he felt like a stand-in, and didn’t see himself evolving into a full-fledge member. “I wrote nine songs to be submitted to the Manson record and none of them made it. I was really in hired gun land there, but was sort of being told that I wasn’t,” Borland says. “So when I figured that whole thing out, I knew I was never going to get an inch into that band. I love Manson. He’s definitely one of the wildest personalities I’ve ever been around and one of the smartest people I’ve ever met but it’s the Marilyn Manson show over there. Limp Bizkit is more of a band.” Well played, Mr. Borland. Let’s hope Manson let’s this one go.
