Marilyn Manson has a crush on Lady Gaga.
The pair met last year when they recorded covers of each other’s upcoming material. The controvesial “Beautiful People” rocker – who recently on/off romane with actress Evan Rachel Wood, 21, recently ended – is desperate to take his friendship with the “Poker Face” singer, who is also nearly 20 years his junior a step further.
When Marilyn watched Gaga passionately kiss a male model in the video clip for her new song “Paparazzi,” the 40-year-old musician moaned and said: “I’d like to be that guy. I’ll give you a cervical exam.”
The alternative musician is also a fan of the 23-year-old singer’s unique image because he sees himself in her.
“I was most impressed by her paparazzi photos. I thought that it looked the way that rock stars should look, as exciting as something that Warhol or Dali would do,” the alternative music star told Britain’s Observer.
“And I don’t consider her to be similar to her contemporaries – the other girls that do pop music – simply because she knows exactly what she’s doing. She’s very smart, she’s not selling out, she’s a great musician, she’s a great singer, and she’s laughing when she’s doing it, the same way that I am.”
