Marilyn Manson rocked the cover of Paper magazine recently with his usual makeup, creepy smile, and an out-of-nowhere pair of Mickey Mouse ears.

The cover was only the beginning of the Marilyn Manson spread.

Paper, the magazine most recently known for the famous Kim Kardashian spread, included several shots of Marilyn Manson.

One of those shots was of Marilyn Manson standing with his father, also in full makeup.

I guess this is one dad that doesn't mind his son playing in makeup.

Despite all my rage.

What have I created? Which one of us said that?

If you think Marilyn Manson's dad actually looks surprisingly comfortable with his face covered in white paint, there is a reason for that.

"The first time that I did see my dad in makeup was, ironically, the second concert I ever went to. He dressed as Gene Simmons and took me to the Kiss 'Dynasty' tour when I was 11. And people were asking my dad for his autograph."

Chip off the old block.

Marilyn Manson has been thinking a lot about mortality lately.

He said in his interview that he has given up a lot of the bad habits that used to define him in his younger, creepier years.

Marilyn Manson has shifted to working during normal daylight hours and has stopped drinking absinthe.

He even works out with a trainer now.

Another event which might have put mortality on the mind of Marilyn Manson is the recent purchase of a haunted Hollywood mansion.

Just how haunted, you ask?

Haunted enough.

He said, "Doors slam behind me a lot, and I'm always hearing people walking up and down the stairs - but I ain't afraid of no ghosts."

Marilyn Manson found out after the home's purchase that a silent movie actress from the 1920's died in the house. He wasn't naming names, though.

He said, "I don't want to say her name, because she'll probably try to come out and... (attack me) one night."


What do you think of Marilyn Manson being photographed with his made-up dad?
