'Beautiful People' star Marilyn Manson has spoken out about the rise in celebrity culture, saying that rock stars are now as much celebrities as reality TV stars and YouTube sensations.
Speaking in an interview with Gigwise, the star shares his opinions on the rock world blending with celebrity, and how his own life has become the stuff of celebrity culture.
"There's definitely a mixture now of celebrity and rockstar that didn't exist when I started," says Manson in his Gigwise interview. "There always has been celebrity there, but it was stars. There was never the era of being famous for nothing or being famous for being stupid on YouTube."
