Music Artist Who Were In A Bad Place When Writing These Songs

8/2/2015 4:00pm EDT
17 Most Depressing, Gloomy And Morbid Songs
OK, OK! There's no sugarcoating it! These songs totally SUCK….THE LIFE RIGHT OUT OF YOU! Well not literally, but metaphorically. Basically, these songs are gloomy, sad songs that definitely won’t lift your spirits. So if you’re already sad yourself – you may want to save this downer for a happier day.

1) Nina Simone, “Strange Fruit” (The Essential Nina Simone, 2003)

“Strange Fruit” satisfies all three characteristics necessary to make this playlist – it’s truly depressing, gloomy, and morbid. The morbid aspect is the most disturbing as the “Southern trees / bearing strange fruit / b...

25 Most Underrated Songs Of 2015 (So Far)
Not every record ends up being a hit. In fact if you think about it, only a select few songs end up with the distinction of hit status. The songs featured on this list are terrific, but none of them have been profound in the commercial department. Arguably, the best way to describe these songs are ‘underrated’ – they are the ‘unsung heroes’ of the year as well as their artist’s respective album. All deserve the same respect if not more than the hits, but they can always bask in their critical acclaim. These are the most underrated songs of 2015…so far.

The underrated songs chosen are ...

Why Did Rose McGowan & Marilyn Manson Really Split Up?

6/27/2015 6:49pm EDT
Rose McGowan
Rose McGowan says excessive drug use led to her split with Marilyn Manson back in 2001. During an interview with Andy Cohen on "Watch What Happens Live," she explained: "It's one thing to party every now and then, but when it becomes a full time (thing)..."

When Cohen asked about a lifestyle difference between herself and Manson, McGowan, 41, simply said, "Scarface. Think about it Andy... What was Scarface about?"

The classic film, starring Al Pacino, chronicles a Cuban-American's descent into drug abuse.

"Coke," Cohen responded. "He did too much blow and you were not down for it."

To Put It Bluntly – 12 Songs With No Filter
Have you ever heard the old saying the he or she “has no filter?” Well, that same saying can be applied to songs as well. To put it bluntly, some songs have no filter, and it all starts with a shocking title. All 12 of the songs that grace this list fit the billing – no filter whatsoever.

Marilyn Manson Sees His Dad In Full Goth Makeup - You Won't Beli
Celebrities, royalty, average Joes- everybody groans with shame when their parents embarrass them in public.

That's what happened to rocker Marilyn Manson in a recent photo shoot for Paper Magazine. Manson was rocking his usual goth look- black clothes, pale skin, plenty of lipstick- when his dad showed up out of nowhere, wearing the exact same thing.

It's amazing. Also, kind of heartwarming, like in the father/son moment seen above. Clearly, Manson's dad (Hugh Warner, as Manson's real name is Brian Hugh Warner) is a big fan of his son's unique look.

Apparently, the makeup habit is a fa...

5 Takeaways From Marilyn Manson’s 'The Pale Emperor'
What comes to mind when you hear the name Marilyn Manson? Crazy, satanic, atheistic, odd, left of center? All those adjectives are fair game for one of music’s most shocking musicians/bands, period. Manson had parents shivering back in the 1990s, and the controversies surrounding him during the period of the ’99 Columbine High School shootings will never be forgotten.

But that was then and this is now, and Manson’s shocking peak has been far behind him and his collective. That said there’s still that sense of fear, rebelliousness, and hellishness when one partakes of a Marilyn Manson...

Marilyn Manson says he wasn't part of a music video that features Lana Del Rey being raped. The singer insists the video includes spliced footage from separate promos.

Filmmaker Eli Roth mentioned the video, shot last year, during a recent interview with Larry King. The footage was leaked online Thursday.

The video begins with a dinner party that turns chaotic as guests begin throwing furniture around. The promo then cuts to Del Rey who is being pinned down on a bed by a man. She struggles and screams until the attacker puts his hand over her mouth. When he finally walks away, the underwe...

10 Gender Bending & Androgynous Celebrities
People who cross the line between male and female and are confused for being the opposite sex are referred to as androgynous. They embody sexual ambiguity. They display it in their fashion and/or in their sexual or gender identity.

Scottish actress Tilda Swinton is an ethereal, androgynous star who keeps her platinum blonde hair short and resembles a man at times.

She told the Daily Mail in 2014 she's often mistaken for being male "especially at airport security. I think I should probably wear more lipstick."

15 Unquestionably Creepy Celebrities
Some celebrities are so gloriously good at what they do, even if they don't look particularly disturbing they are really, really creepy.

Christopher Walken has cemented himself as one of the creepiest actors of all time. Maybe it's his pale skin. Maybe it's his giant forehead. Of course, many of the roles he's played have contributed to the creep factor ("The Dead Zone," "A View To A Kill," "At Close Range," "The Prophecy," etc.).

Disturbing fact: Walken was a guest on the yacht of his "Brainstorm" co-car Natalie Wood and her husband, Robert Wagner, when the actress fell overboard and die...

Review: Avril Lavigne Redeems Herself On Self-Titled Fourth Album

Avril Lavigne
“I’mma keep it real from the jump,” as Drake would rap. Avril Lavigne’s previous effort, 2011’s Goodbye Lullaby was not her crowning achievement, no questions asked.  Goodbye Lullaby had its moments, specifically with brash promo single “What The Hell” as well as “Smile”.  Otherwise though, it was merely average, particularly for a firecracker like Lavigne.  Avril Lavigne is definitely a bolder, more entertaining effort, evidenced from its opening intro on the opening track.  That isn’t to label this effort as valedictory (it’s not perfect by any meand), but there are plenty of strong showi...
