In a recent interview with Consequence of Sound, Manson bashed the Canadian pop star for putting his name on the back of Manson’s Bigger Than Satan t-shirt. Oh, and then Bieber went off and sold it at department store Barney’s for an absurd price: $195.
But, according to Jerry Lorenzo, the clothing brand Fear of God designer, the company had Manson’s permission to re-interpret the design. Well, that’s not what Manson is saying.
Here’s what happened when Manson and Bieber met up, according to the shock rocker.
“He was [already] wearing the shirt that had his name on my shirt, and he said to me, ‘I made you relevant again.’ Bad mistake to say to me. He was a real piece of shit in the way he had the arrogance to say that. He was a real touchy-feely guy, too, like, ‘yo yo bro!’ and touches you when he’s talking. I’m like, you need to stand down, you’re dick-height on me, OK?.”

Well, Manson isn’t wrong there. And he wasn’t done yet. Look what else Manson said.
“The next day I told him I’d be at his soundcheck at Staples Center to do ‘Beautiful People.’ He believed that I’d show up, because he was that stupid.”
Manson said eventually he was able to get all the profits from the shirts that people were buying for some reason.
“They didn’t even fight, they were just like, ‘yea, we already know, we did wrong, so here’s the money,'” Manson adds.
I would have liked to be a fly on the wall when two people like Manson and Bieber had a conversation. This has to be one of the strangest feuds we’ve heard of.
In other news, to anyone reading this that owns one of those shirts: what were you thinking?
