Marilyn Manson Spotted Having Dinner With Rose McGowan

Journalist and screenwriter Phoebe Eaton spotted Marilyn Manson and someone she assumed to be Rose McGowan - "or at least, her doppelganger" - having dinner this past Sunday (6/2/24) at the legendary and very touristy Musso and Frank Grill in Hollywood. Though she made it sound like she was unsure of the identity of the woman with Manson (I'm sure she just found it hard to believe), and since a barrier kept her hidden most of the time, it has been anonymously confirmed that it was indeed Manson's ex-fiance Rose McGowan with him at dinner. Though it is unknown why they were having dinner together, we can assume they are at least on friendly enough terms to do so, which is quite significant in light of the roller coaster ride over the past few years since Evan Rachel Wood and others named Manson as their abuser in February 2021. As I have written elsewhere, we know that in 2020 Manson and McGowan were friendly and talking again, but as Evan's public testimony about

Marilyn Manson in the News (November 29-December 3, 2021) - Manson Eats Dinner With Kanye, Gets Served a Search Warrant, Used as a Scapegoat in a Murder Trial, and Loses a Grammy Nomination

Let's take a look at some of the more interesting stories in the news in regards to Marilyn Manson, from November 29th to December 3rd.
1. Kanye West and Marilyn Manson Meet for Dinner

On November 29th, Radar Online reported that two separate eyewitnesses saw Ye and Manson at Bestia in Downtown Los Angeles Sunday night (November 28th), eating and conversing. The tipster reported that Manson attended the outing "sans makeup" and that "Ye had the ribeye." Another added that Ye was overheard "talking about how all these hot girls still text him." When Ye finished eating, he "immediately put on headphones when he got up to leave." 
Manson's rep has said he would "continue to conceptually collaborate with Ye" moving forward. Looks like Kanye is following through on that promise.

It appears that after dinner Manson got on a plane with his wife Lindsay for their belated honeymoon in Berlin, Germany.

It should be noted that when a lot of trouble came his way back in the 1970s, David Bowie, a major influence on Manson, fled to Berlin to reinvent himself, and would later say of Berlin: "I can't express the feeling of freedom I felt there."

2. Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department Serves a Search Warrant at Marilyn Manson's West Hollywood Home
On November 29th it was reported that the Special Victims Bureau of the LASD served a search warrant at Marilyn Manson's West Hollywood home at 7:00 AM that morning. The official press release, which can be read in full here, reads as follows:

"The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Special Victims Bureau is investigating allegation(s) of domestic violence and sexual assault involving Mr. Brian Warner, also known as the music artist, 'Marilyn Manson.'  The reported incidents occurred between 2009 and 2011 when Mr. Warner lived in the City of West Hollywood.     
On November 29, 2021, at 7:00 AM, detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Special Victims Bureau served a search warrant at Mr. Warner’s Hollywood area home as part of the on-going investigation.  Mr. Warner was not home at the time of the warrant service.  During the search, detectives seized items such as media storage devices.    
There's no additional information being released at this time.
This investigation remains active."

The LASD is gathering whatever evidence they can find, if there is any, as part of the investigation that began in February. This is being done to hand over whatever they can gather to the District Attorney. Contrary to what Evan Rachel Wood would have us believe, this case has not yet gone to the District Attorney. The District Attorney will evaluate everything gathered by the LASD in order to determine if this warrants a criminal case or not.

If you contact the District Attorney now, as Evan Rachel Wood wants you to in order to harass them, this is the message you will get:

Colonel Kurtz has kindly interviewed Criminal Defense Lawyer Andrea Burkhart to give an attorney's perspective on the little we know of this matter:

3. Marilyn Manson Used as a Scapegoat in a Murder Trial

On November 30th the New York Post ran an interesting headline: "Marilyn Manson obsessive found guilty of killing ex". Obviously they are using Manson's name for sensationalist purposes in the headline.

The day before, on November 29th, a jury in Massachusetts found Julia Enright, 24, a dominatrix on the side, a phlebotomist by training, guilty of second-degree murder in the 2018 fatal stabbing of 20-year-old Brandon Chicklis.

Prosecutors said Enright had lured Chicklis to a treehouse near her home with the intent to kill him as a “gift” for her new boyfriend.

Enright testified during her trial that she stabbed Chicklis in self-defense as he raped her — and insisted she never meant to kill him.

Under cross-examination, prosecutors asked Enright to read several of her journal entries, including one where she wrote: “I just have an insatiable curiosity to kill a person.”

Julia Enright blamed her obsession with animal corpses and death on Marilyn Manson, being fixated on him at the time. She also talked about "imitating" Manson in how he writes, talks and acts at the time.

She said her boyfriend helped her dispose of Chicklis’ body a few miles away off the side of a highway in Rindge, New Hampshire, where it was found by a jogger 17 days later.

Her boyfriend hasn’t been charged.

Enright is now facing a mandatory sentence of life in prison with the possibility of parole after 15 years at her sentencing hearing on January 18.

4. Jussie Smollett Trial Begins

I made this meme some months ago, which I think says it all in regards to its similarity with the Manson case.

On January 29, 2019, Smollett told police that he was attacked outside his apartment building by two men in ski masks. He reported they talked to him using racial and homophobic slurs and said, "This is MAGA country," a reference to President Donald Trump's slogan "Make America Great Again." He claimed they used their hands, feet, and teeth as weapons in the assault. According to a statement released by the Chicago Police Department, the two suspects then "poured an unknown liquid" on Smollett and put a noose around his neck. Smollett said that he fought them off. Smollett was treated at Northwestern Memorial Hospital; not seriously injured, he was released "in good condition" later that morning. The police were called after 2:30 a.m.; when they arrived around 2:40 a.m., Smollett had a white rope around his neck. Smollett said that the attack may have been motivated by his criticism of the Trump administration and that he believed that the alleged assault was linked to the threatening letter that was sent to him earlier that month.

Within a month, all these allegations were proven to be a lie. Smollett is facing six counts of making false police reports.

5. Manson's Grammy Nomination for "Best Rap Song" Dropped

According to the New York Times report on December 2nd, Marilyn Manson was removed from consideration for one of his two Grammy nominations. He no longer is considered eligible for the "Best Rap Song" award, though he is still eligible for the "Album of the Year" award for Donda.

Manson had an official songwriting credit under the name Brian Hugh Warner for “Jail, Pt 2”, but in the most current version of the album his name is not listed. For this reason his nomination was dropped. This has nothing to do with the allegations against him.

It should be further added that the reason Manson was not credited as a writer on the current version is perhaps due to the fact that the lyrics sung by Manson in the song were in fact written by Prince before he died and which he gave to Kanye, as Kanye revealed in a recent interview.
