4. Manson Joined the Show for his Dad
Manson and his father were fans of the show for a long time before Manson became a part of the cast. He told Entertainment Weekly:
Sons has been such a big part of my life, as well as my father’s. So I was determined to make him proud by being involved in what will probably be remembered as the most amazing piece of television cinema. After all, the very heart of SOA is about that relationship. So, now all I need is a motorcycle.
5. He Had Sex on Camera for One of His Videos
Manson dated Evan Rachel Wood who appeared in his music video “Heart-Shaped Glasses,” but the real scandal was the sex scene. Reportedly, the two actually had sex while filming it. Manson confessed to MTV News:
Let’s say there were some conservative people involved [with the video] that got a little upset about things that were taking place, and there’s been rumors back and forth, but I will not confirm or deny them. I did insist that Evan be paid the most that any actress has ever been paid in music-video history to be in this, even though she wouldn’t have asked for it. There’s no one else that could’ve been in it, because it was inspired by her.
