I just went through the LAX security line with Marilyn Manson. He had "FUCK" scrawled in large letters across the bottom half of his face, with what appeared to be a grease pencil. As we each removed our boots in the security line, he kindly explained that it was not directed at me or anyone else in the airport, but rather at the paparazzi, so that they couldn't sell any photos of him that they took. He was really apologetic about it, and covered his mouth around young children while apologizing to their parents for exposing their child to profanity.Oh, Marilyn Manson, the only man who would even try to pretend that he's writing a swear on his face to make people not look at him. Your whole schtick, Mazza, is to have people look at you. It's like me taking advertising space, hiring a gazebo, printing up catalogues and then trying to claim I'm not making an exhibition of myself.
Surely, the best way to avoid having the paparazzi take photos of you is by continuing your long, slow slide into the Dennis Norden Memorial Sofa of 'what was all that about anyway' half-forgotten sideshows?
