I just saw MarilynManson.FR post this through Facebook. Not sure what the article is about, maybe someone will be able to translate it. But there's a couple of nice photographes/page spreads.
I've posted this on the news on the front page, but if anyone is able to translate the article into English we can include that into the new post, with credit to whoever translates it.

Can't speak Italian worth a damn, but those photos are sweet, especially the first one.

I ran a quick google translate on the page to read the text there, but would love to read a translation of the text on the images. Lovely shots, really dig the one of him out against the wall (looks like he's smoking?).

" Black, black and white. To walk without tripping the only way is to use the phone. Ceilings, walls, floors, sofas, libraries, all black. You have the impression that all of a sudden you can fall into a hole that leads straight to hell. Instead we are in Hollywood, in the vicinity of the hotel Chateau Marmont, at Marilyn Manson.
Is waiting for the release of new album and you can see more video of the single the title Lp dà "Born Villain", directed by Shia LaBeouf, latest wunderkind of Manson.
«I met at the Chateau Marmont, a magical place that seems to have a gravitational energy, a place that attracts creative like a magnet does with iron, "explains. «Find a video I consider him a short movie that Shia decided to run only after you have understood all this that inspired me in literature and film. I spent whole days to speak of "the flowers of evil" by Baudelaire, the work of Edgar Allan Poe and "Macbeth", all things still modern. The theme of the video? The resurrection, the rebirth. It was a collaboration with constant input of any kind including "81/2", Fellini preferred. «Is the debut album by I spirit I had 10 years ago, when I still had the desire to succeed. Then, after I had everything and lost everything, I'm back with the same energy, cleaned up. With only this that I decided to keep: collections of movies, books, art. The rest doesn't interest me, I figured that I don't own a car ".
The video is extreme, a mix between horror and the hard core, and reveals the birth of a new man, reborn, artistically and intellectually.

A decent translation from Babalon user, Falling4YourOwnLies
Profanity rocker, known for albums Antichrist Superstar and Mechanical Animals talks about sex and reveals the background of his latest video, directed by Shia LaBeouf, and the anticipation of his new album, Born Villain.
Black, black and black again. To walk without tripping the only face the light of a phone. Ceilings, walls, floors, sofas, bookcases, all black. One has the impression that I could suddenly fall into a hole that leads straight to Hell. Instead we are in Hollywood, in the vicinity of the Chateau Marmont, the home of Marilyn Manson. It seems along the belly of the beast, the great castle of "Beauty and the Beast," the laboratory of "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde." The name is known and the fruit of the union of Marilyn (Monroe) and (Charles) Manson, almost a split personality between the angel and the demonic. Designed to provoke and to be ironic.
And always hovering between instinct and sarcasm. The 42-year old of Ohio, writes and paints his nightmares in a “den” all-black, standing next to a white cat, gift of ex Dita Von Teese.
In this world, his home and his black, MM (“Logo” discarded at the beginning of his career because the trademark icon Mickey Mouse had it already) creates, plays, paints, writes, and lives of both his dreams and nightmares, constantly poised between satire and sarcasm psyche, described in his work with insight, knowledge and intelligence to be unique and special. Qualities that emerge only when you know it well. The single point of light across the black of the loft is Lily White, the white cat given to him by his ex-wife Dita Von Teese.
“My relationship with Lily is the longest relationship I’ve ever had with a ‘pussy’, but not in the sense of the word vagina,” he jokes. Waiting for the release of new album,but you can already see the video for the single that gives the title to 'LP' Born Villain ", directed by Shia LaBeouf. “I met him at the Chateau Marmont, a magical place that attracts creativity like a magnet with the iron,” he says. “More than a video, I would consider a short movie that Shia has decided to run only after you understand everything that inspired me in literature and cinema. I spent days talking to him about "The flowers of evil", the works of Edgar Allen Poe's "Macbeth", yet all things modern.” The theme of the video? “The resurrection, rebirth. It was an ongoing collaboration with input of all kinds, including "8 1 / 2", Federico Fellini preferred.”
“I made this album with the same spirit that I had 10 years ago when I still had the desire to succeed Then, having had everything and lost everything, I'm back with the same energy of a time, cleaned up. With only what I've decided to keep: collections of movies, books, and art. The rest does not interest me. The video is extreme. It’s hard core with a mix of horror, and reveals the birth of a new man, a reborn artist. It’s also a message to all those who seek to understand, criticize, guess my work as an artist, a homage, and a statement against a world of Hollywood and its history. One of the most explicit of the film is the reference to "An Andalusian Dog" by Luis Bunuel (but here goes at times far beyond the surrealism of the Spanish artist, editor's note) This collaboration with Shia made me discover the aggression against life that I knew I had, but remained dormant. With "Born Villain," I have withdrawn it all.” He drinks a glass of absinthe (illegal in the States), the same recipe as drunk by Oscar Wilde in Paris, which he produces with the label Mansinthe.
“I can not do one thing, I feel trapped, I have to continuously produce. So I dedicate myself to music, art, film, painting, all to tell stories. But I never want to be trite or presented in a pack of convenience,” he points out. “When I lose my concentration, it seems that my brain is synchronized with twenty televisions on different channels. I lose contact with reality and it begins to roam between different thoughts. But, more often than not, tune to the same frequency and resume possession of the remote control.” In the back of the room stacked dozens of gift painting, watercolors, charcoals. “I started with painting one morning at dawn in 1997, with Billy Zane at the end of a party in this building (which was then his own). We started shooting holes in a canvas, and poured buckets of color. I began to paint and gave him a portrait. Now I love watercolors.”
“I have always enjoy shooting pictures of naked women. And I'm particularly interested in the body from the torso up.”
“For me, painting is a way to interact with people on a deeper level, despite being a solitary activity. Dali is one of my favorite artist, because I find that his (continued on pg. 176)

I really like the new photos. The one with Manson leaning his face on the woman's boobs is a pretty awesome image.
He is certainly looking very stylish in the pictures.

Cool interview and the pics are nice but I don't know about the swastika bracelet. It is a bit tacky. I can't say that I "get it". I don't like seeing swastikas in general.
10-12-2011, 10:20 PM
It's no more offensive than a crucifix. It just means different things for different people. ;)
10-13-2011, 03:22 PM
Wow, I'm loving these pictures. I wonder if I can get my hands on a physical copy of the magazine...
10-13-2011, 06:50 PM
MM.fr shared this awesome video on fb
10-14-2011, 03:29 PM
Wow that is awesome. I wonder if we will see any more photographs from this shoot, it's a good shoot and that video shows some really cool stuff.
10-14-2011, 04:07 PM
I think I saw the video yesterday on facebook. I love the eerie and dark atmosphere of the video.
I really don't like it when someone produces an awesome video, where it's really short. I wish it was slightly longer. ah well.
I think the imagery for the new era is not so bad even though he doesn't wear as much make up as before. I don't know if anyone else noticed this but I get the feeling that the imagery for the new era might be a lot more sinister than The High End of Low era. I could be wrong but that's my perspective.

The Vogue news has now been added to MarilynManson.com, no written article is there just the same content as what is on the Vogue website, scans and video.

I didn't think the video was all that great. Couldn't hardly see any of it.... maybe I need to adjust the brightness on my 'puter.
10-23-2011, 09:11 AM
Yeah, that video was not anything special at all. At first I ignored it because I assumed it wasn't anything special and after watching it, it confirmed my suspicion to be true.
10-23-2011, 09:41 AM
I think it's pretty cool, but then it is what it is, a video taken during the photo shoot.
I keep looking on ebay for a copy of this magazine, some popped up but for nearly £30... then postage on top of that, no thanks! I will keep looking until a better priced copy is up for sale.

I seen it once and just went "oh okay". It was what it is basically.
