Born Brian Hugh Warner in Canton, Ohio, Marilyn Manson experienced a challenging childhood involving molestation and mischievous behavior.

His rebellion against his strict religious upbringing fueled his hate for Christianity.

Post high school, he relocated to Florida with his parents, studied journalism and theater and became an entertainment journalist.


Influenced by Ozzy Osbourne and KISS, he created his own band, “Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids,” a moniker derived from Marilyn Monroe and Charles Manson.

Collaborations with Trent Reznor led to a successful music career marked by controversy over anti-Christian messages.

His engagement to actress Rose McGowan ended in 2001, but he later married burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese.
