The Antichrist Superstar has apparently extended the olive branch to The Biebs in a bid to “fuck the press” following the internet feeding frenzy that accompanied news of the pair’s latest pseudo-beef.
ICYMI: Manson recently called Bieber a “piece of shit”, claiming that — during their last run-in — the popstar boasted about making the shock-rocker “relevant again” by ripping off his merch.
And now, in a new interview with radio personality Howard Stern, Manson has revealed what’s gone down between the pair in the aftermath, handing the host his phone to read aloud a series of text messages that he and The Biebs have supposedly exchanged. And TL;DR, the ‘Sorry’ singer is just that.
Here’s the script of their alleged convo:
BIEBER: Bro, it’s Bieber what’s up with that article? I thought we had a pretty pleasant interaction. Also, if anything wasn’t squared away with the T-shirts I’m so sorry. Anyway, regardless, it kind of stung seeing that if I came off as an asshole or was just an asshole, I’m sorry.
[Manson explained his one-word response to Stern: “that’s what I say to girls when they talk”]
MANSON: That was exaggerated. You were just you being you. No beef here.
BIEBER: Honestly, I totally thought we hit it off. Again, my bad, if I was an asshole that wasn’t my intention. Just want you to know that.
MANSON: We are cool. People just made that shirt stuff into a fake feud. Let’s turn it upside-down and fuck the press and do something together. It will be the best. And don’t apologize, you weren’t an asshole. They asked if you were and I sort of agreed. I wasn’t out to get you.
So there you have it folks. This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
And while we wait for the Manson/Bieber collab of our dreams/nightmares, you can wrap your ears around the God Of Fuck’s freshly minted comeback single ‘We Know Where You Fucking Live’, off his new album Heaven Upside Down dropping on 6th October) below, alongside audio of his chat with Stern.
