Marilyn Manson Recalls Time He Nearly Stole John Mayer’s $20,000 Rolex Watches
If your name happens to be Rob Zombie, we suggest that you don't go around showing off anything expensive, because your current tour mate Marilyn Manson may make off with it. This may seem like an odd warning to offer, but in a recent interview Marilyn Manson told a bizarre story about nearly stealing $20,000 Rolex watches from musician John Mayer.
During an interview with PhillyBurbs.com, Manson was referred to as "our last rock star," citing that bands no longer engage in the legendary debauchery of the past. The healthier lifestyle of modern musicians and lack of youthful rebellion was referred to as the "John Mayer-ization of rock," which prompted Manson to tell his personal John Mayer story.
"I met him [Mayer] right after he got in trouble for saying the “n” word," begins Manson. "You don’t want to say that word, even if you’re black because you’ll get your ass beat. He was shifty, cagey and weird. Mayer invited me up to his room and he proceeded to show me, out of his safe, his collection of Rolex watches; they’re about $20,000 apiece. Why do you need a watch? I have an iPhone. I was contemplating going into the bathroom, putting whatever metal objects I had in my sock and just rolling him. When he would tell people, 'Marilyn Manson stole my watches,' who would believe him?"
The answer to Manson's question is: EVERYBODY! Comparing this to rumors that were widely believed during the course of Manson's career, a few stolen watches are pretty minor. Such rumors include Manson having his two bottom ribs removed in order to perform auto-fellatio, that he was a hermaphrodite and that he was actually Josh Saviano from 'The Wonder Years.'
Anyway, John Mayer ... stop showing off your silly watches.
