See Marilyn Manson Talk New Album, Ozzy, Bullying, Onstage Accident



Marilyn Manson just released his highly anticipated Shooter Jennings-produced album, WE ARE CHAOS, and he recently talked to Apple Music 1’s Zane Lowe about the new LP — of which he quipped, “mostly, I had joy making this record, which sounds very unlike what you’d expect for me to say.” Among the many other topics covered, Manson discussed how he and Jennings bonded over the respective loss of their fathers, how he dealt with his horrific 2017 onstage accident, his canceled tour with Ozzy Osbourne, and the connection between album closer “Broken Record” and bully culture. Watch the interview above and read standout excerpts from it below — you can listen to Manson and Zane’s conversation in-full today (September 16th) at 10 a.m. PT or anytime on-demand at

“When making this record with Shooter, because we both lost our fathers and we bonded over that, in a sense,” Manson said. “And his father was musical outlaw, as you said. My father was also, in his own right, a real asshole but outlaw. I mean, he did not play by the rules, but he raised me to be who I am. And I’m not ashamed of that. It just, sometimes you miss your lost ones. But I try to put that into the music. And I tried to make this record also a story that’s not just about me. I mean, ideally, if I could have made a book of it, it would just be mirrors for pages, literally. So you could just see your own story in it. And starting out with the intro, I think it was meant to set a tone. That was prose that I wrote on the moment — I had it in my head — but it was in the moment, I wanted it to introduce the record so that it would sort of in any great movie or TV show or book or play.”

Of his canceled tour with Ozzy, the shock-rock icon commented, “Like if you have an ill parent and you can’t do anything about it you feel helpless. If you’re stuck in your house and your work you can’t do you’re helpless. For us fortunately and for me making this record luckily somehow it was finished for the most part far before any of the pandemic hit. It was in January when we really finished it. And it was never really written about this, but it seems as if it became the moment where it was supposed to happen. And it’s sad that Ozzy had to cancel his tour because he was ill. But I planned on spending my whole year kind of based around concept of touring with Ozzy and releasing the record. And then everything suddenly shifted. And sometimes I don’t like to use the word works out for a reason, things happen for a reason. I think things are faded and they come together.”

Looking back on his infamous 2017 onstage accident, Manson said, “I think that I was very lucky that it was about six inches from my skull. When it fell it was not secured and I grabbed onto this giant lighting rig essentially that had these two guns on it. So I mean if there’s an argument for gun control, I’ll be right there in regards to those guns. OK. Fair enough. So I’ve 10 titanium pins on my leg. Right here 10, just goes from here to here and they’re still there. They’re going to be there forever, but I had to do a year and a half of rehab while on tour. I did a tour with it. Then Dave Grohl and Axl Rose graciously offered their chairs. And I said no and I found this electric wheelchair that rose up. And I tried to make it into part of the show and it was not a fun time at all. But it doesn’t bother me now. It’s actually more of a bionic leg and it doesn’t go off at airports either, which is strange. If anyone’s heavy metal, it’s my leg — it’s full heavy metal.”


Buddy Valastro, Cake Boss Star, Impales Hand in Awful Bowling Accident





Cake Boss lead Buddy Valastro revealed on Instagram today that he’s in a lot of pain, but on the mend, after being “involved in a terrible accident” on Sunday.

As you can see here, the accident resulted in the reality star being sent to the hospital over this past weekend; 

A representative for Valastro told People Magazine that the mishap took place while the popular chef was spending “quality time” with his family at home, which is equipped with a bowling alley.

“There was a malfunction with the bowling pinsetter, a common fix in the past, but turned into a terrible accident,” this person explained, adding:

“After trying to release the bowling pin from the cage mechanism, his right hand became lodged and compressed inside the unit.

“Unable to remove his hand, he can see a 1-1/2″ metal rod slowly and repeatedly impale his hand three times between his ring finger and middle finger.”

This rep detailed how Valastro was stuck for approximately five minute… until his teenager sons swooped in with reciprocating saw “to cut through the metal rod and relieve his father from the machine.”

Yikes, huh?

Valastro has since had two surgeries performed.

He is recovering at home after being released from the hospital on Wednesday.

“It will be an uphill battle as it’s Buddy’s dominant right hand and he will need prolonged recovery and therapy,” Valastro’s rep says.

The long-time reality star is trying to maintain his sense of humor, at least.

Along with the above picture of himself with a giant cast on his arm, Buddy wrote as a caption:

‘What do you think of my new accessory? #recoveryjourney #positivevibes #ironfist #cakeboss #buddyvalastro.”

Shortly after learning the news, a number of of Valastro’s celebrity chef friends sent him wishes of a speedy recovery in the comments.

Wrote fellow cake expert Duff Goldman, who stars as Valastro’s rival on the baking competition show Buddy vs. Duff:

“Get better homie. You’re gonna need that hand.”

Top Chef’s Brooke Williamson added: “Sending love, get well soon!”

And Emeril Lagasse chimed in with: “Get better quick my friend!”

Hypoluxo – “Nimbus”




Last month, the nervy Brooklyn group Hypoluxo returned with a new single, “Ridden.” It was their first release via Terrible Records’ Flexible Distribution, after a pretty negative run with an old label that, as the story behind “Ridden” goes, almost killed the band. But they survived, and they are in fact coming back with a new album. That album, titled LP3, will be out in November.

Along with today’s announcement, the band has shared another new song called “Nimbus.” It’s apparently a (only partially?) tongue-in-cheek screed against meteorologists rooted in some grim days when frontman Samuel Cogan was working for a delivery service on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Here’s what Cogen had to say about it:

This past winter I picked up a bike delivery job for extra money. Not an easy job to do in the cold, occasionally rainy, New York winter. Easily the most annoying part of the job was how inconsistent the morning weather reports were. One day it poured for hours rather than the sunny day that was promised. While I hid in a overpriced Upper West Side bar soaking wet, and feeling not very welcome by the wealthy older businessmen next to me, I started writing “Nimbus.”

“You can never trust/ You can never trust/ What they say/ Staring at a radar telling you what you want to hear,” Cogen barks. Things escalate quickly: “Knowledge is power,” he continues. It’s probably safe to say this is the most intense song about meteorologists in recent memory, but it’s another jangly post-punk gem from Hypo’s upcoming album either way. Check it out below.

02 “Ridden”

Will Smith admits he was unhappy with ‘Men In Black’ sequel, says ‘Bad Boys for Life’ isn’t a ‘cash grab’




If you did not like the third ‘Men In Black’ movie which released in 2012, you are not alone. Will Smith, Agent J himself, has confirmed that he was disappointed with the movie and hence he took his time with the sequel for ‘Bad Boys’.

‘Bad Boys For Life’, the third movie in the series, starring Smith and Martin Lawrence, is set to release in theatres next week. In his appearance on Jimmy Fallon’s ‘Tonight Show’ on NBC on Thursday night, Smith said how important it was to do the sequel right.

“What we tried to do, that was really critical and important to me, is not try to just do the old movies again,” said Smith, referencing 1995’s ‘Bad Boys’ and 2003’s ‘Bad Boys II’.

“You had to take into consideration the time, had to take into consideration how the characters would have grown. And the reason it took so long is because I didn’t want to make it just as a cash grab. You know, ‘Hey, everybody loves sequels, let’s just do a sequel.’”

Smith then proceeded to throw his past sequels under the bus, saying, “I had fumbled a couple of my last sequels. You know, I wasn’t happy with the ‘Men in Black’ sequel.”

However, Smith has promised that fans will love the upcoming movie. He said with a laugh, “I’m going to keep it real: sometimes I say ‘y’all are gonna love it,’ and y’all not gonna love it.” Smith also added, “You know, ’cause sometimes I’ve seen it, and I know y’all not gonna love it, but it’s an expensive movie. But this time…it is so good.”

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Lawrence credited Smith with pushing for the sequel with the right script. Lawrence said, “And he pushed and pushed and pushed for years for them to get the script right. So we finally got the script right, and we did it.”

‘Bad Boys for Life’ is scheduled to be released in the United States on January 17, 2020.
