Marilyn Manson recently spoke with Lauren Bohn over at Time about how he gets creative, his new album, a typical day in his life (shaving female privates), and more. Check inside for an excerpt and go here for the full interview.

Where have you been?
Well, I thought I was going to give up music. I wanted to put all my creative energy into painting and filmmaking. I felt smothered and controlled by not only my contract and record label, but just the way that you have to deal with being objectified as a product.

How does this new album fit into the evolution of Marilyn Manson?
Track two is called Pretty as a Swastika. It’s something I said to a girl because of her complexion — with black hair, red lips and pale skin. I mean, it was a complex and poetic comment that soon led to intercourse, so I felt no reason for it to be seen as confusing, hateful and destructive. The record label [told me], take it off the album. Rather than do so, I decided to produce it on the inside of the sleeve with a different name, so it’ll be sold in Wal-Mart or wherever stores sell guns but are afraid to deal with lyrics. So, I put Pretty as a ($) because all of their motivations are based on money.

What is a typical day in the life of Marilyn Manson? Many would place their bets on your emerging from a bat-cave at dusk. What’s the deal?
You picked a great day to ask me, because if you asked me what a typical day was on any other day, I think you’d find it to be completely made up. But I’ll tell you. I just moved out of my house, so I’m staying at the Sunset Marquis Hotel — very famous for a lot of things. Including now the things I’ve done here.

Such as?
Well, last night I made a video for Pretty as a Swastika and it included my shaving the pubic hair of my special lady friend.

What is the message you stand for? Your place in the world?
When you asked what I’ve been doing for the past year — besides making this record, I was living alone for the first time since I’ve moved out of my parents’ home as a teenager. During the course of writing this record, I did that. That transformation made me understand the importance of change — that I want to be a better person, a better version of me. That’s not talking about ethics or morality. I just want to be the best me there is and not be ashamed of what I am.

Buckcherry has been announced as the opening act for KISS’s North American tour. If you’re a Buckcherry or KISS fan, you can go to www.eventful/kiss where you can vote for the tour to come to your town. Yes, that’s right. From now until June 30th, fans will be voting to determine the stops on KISS’s tour. They’ll play anywhere “from stadiums to cornfields” and to keep the competition fair for smaller cities, final site selection will weigh population size versus total votes. Another addition to voting for your town, all KISS and now Buckcherry fans will have the opportunity to purchase pre-sale tickets prior to the general on-sale and will also receive KISS merchandise discounts and more.
Buckcherry also is running a “Talk To Me” promotion to support their latest single. Fans can call the Buckcherry hotline at 213-784-4536 and enter by leaving the band a message and voting on the Eventful widget on the band’s website http://www.Buckcherry.com. Fans all over North America can enter and Josh Todd or Keith Nelson from Buckcherry will call one winner in each of the chosen markets to tell the winner that they are coming to their city with KISS and that they have won the first pair of tickets to the show in their town. The contest ends June 30 at 11:59pm EST. The single impacts at active and mainstream rock radio on June 15.
