UPDATE — From Sandra Rose:

Parents in Los Angeles are expressing outrage after rocker Marilyn Manson simulated cutting himself onstage during the LA leg of his Shock Therapy Tour.

The bizarre behavior occurred one day after Manson issued a personal VIP invite to Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris Jackson, 15, who was hospitalized after a possible suicide attempt.


Never even realized that Marilyn Manson still performed. From TMZ:

Marilyn Manson dedicated a song to Paris Jackson at his concert in L.A. last night … a song called “Disposable Teens” — a track about a teenager who’s angry with society.

Manson’s dedication was simple — just telling the crowd, “This song is for Paris Jackson.”

The rocker then launched into “Disposable Teens.” Here’s a sampling of some of the lyrics:

“And I’m a black rainbow … And I’m an ape of god … I’ve got a face that’s made for violence upon … And I’m a teen distortion … Survived abortion … A rebel from the waist down.”

“You say you wanted evolution … The ape was a great big hit …
You say you want a revolution, man … And I say that you’re full of sh*t.”
