Ah, bless. Although he's normally tolerated in the same way that Barney the Purple Dinosaur and Ronald McDonald are, what Marilyn Manson really wants is to be thought of as scary and threatening.
So he was delighted when they wouldn't let him into Koln Dom. Straights! Freaked out! Quick, tell the papers:
Marilyn didn't think cathedral staff recognised him and told reporters: "They didn't let me in because I was wearing lipstick."
Or perhaps they did recognise him, and just didn't want his vacuity in their cathedral. Or, much more likely, they were closed.
But "I went to a cathedral and it was closed" isn't quite as exciting for Marilyn, is it?
Apparently, he's in Cologne because some of his daubings are bing displayed:
He said: "Either you like them or you don't."
No, actually, it's possible to be completely indifferent to them.
