As if Marilyn Manson isn’t quite eccentric enough, he’ll soon confuse the masses even more with his latest collaboration: Disney Channel star turned full-fledged movie star, Shia LaBeouf.
The “Transformers” star stopped by “Live With Regis And Kelly” yesterday (June 30) to discuss, naturally, his latest flick with Michael Bay, but somehow the conversation stumbled onto the topic of Marilyn Manson. Apparently Manson asked LaBeouf, who has helmed music videos for Kid Cudi (“Marijuana”) and rapper Cage, to direct a documentary about the making of his eighth album.
At the prodding of co-host Kelly Ripa, a surprisingly eager Manson fan, the actor dished on Manson and his “lair.” Watch below (starts around the 3:15 mark).
“He’s a real sweet guy,” LaBeouf said. “He’s an eccentric human being. He lives in West Hollywood above a liquor store. There are no lights in the room. And there are these big metal doors and he opens the door and he’s in a kimono, a big pink kimono. It’s sort of like a lair. No lights, so you have to use your cell phone to guide you around. We sat and watched movies for a while and talked about what kind of visuals he wanted on his album, which are all really eccentric ideas. All things I can’t really say out loud because this is morning television.”
Few specifics are known for Manson’s album, tentatively set for release later this year. The album will serve as the follow-up to 2009’s “The High End of Low.”
