Trent Reznor Engaged

Trent Reznor Engaged to Mariqueen Maandig Pictures Photos at Star Trek Premiere

I guess everyone has to settle down eventually. The rockstar genius behind Nine Inch Nails, Trent Reznor, has announced his engagement to Mariqueen Maandig, the lead singer for West Indian Girl. The two showed up at the Star Trek premiere together last week.

When I read that name, I cringed. Mariqueen Maandig is seared into my memory forever. Years ago, West Indian Girl performed at the Sundance bash. I tried to interview her beforehand. Tried. It was the clusterfuck to top all clusterfucks. She was nervous as hell and I was told I would just be sitting in with another interviewer — I’d be there to make jokes and look pretty, basically — so I hadn’t prepped. At the last minute, I was told I was doing the interview myself. I didn’t know anything about her band and I didn’t know what the hell to ask her, and she kept coming back at me with one-word answers, or sometimes just grunts. This went on for a really, really long time. It was painful. I think we both felt awful about the whole thing. She later apologized to me on the band’s blog, but it was probably I who owed her an apology. It definitely goes down in my book as the worst interview I’ve ever done. I can’t even find the footage to link you guys to. I think burned it. But I learned an important lesson there: No matter what anyone tells you about how laid-back it’s going to be or what your role is, you never, ever go into an interview without prepping on your subject. I haven’t made that mistake since. Mariqueen and the band went on to put on a fantastic show. She wore a mind-blowing little gold dress that pretty much rendered the male population of that party useless for the night. You can check out her performance here.

Congrats to Trent and Mariqueen!!!

    • She has the fattest head I’ve ever seen! Too bad there is nothing but space in between the ears. That is what inspired their song.

  • Holy cow, does he look different. He looks like some beefy weightlifter. His neck is huge! Damn.

  • She sure isn’t much to look at…

    But on a side note…I get to see NIN on Saturday! :-)

  • She’s fug. She’s fug with a big ass. He’s a mediocre hick from Pennsylvania who hasn’t done anything worthwhile in 15 years. And I just looooooove the fact that he said he didn’t have the FAINTEST clue that he recorded his pig filled album at the Tate house. Pathetic. Hope you guys spawn because the world needs more fuglies.

  • Have you checked out this chicks twitter page? she is so open about her sex life and her orgasms its just ridiculous. Good on Trent for picking such a classy groupie slut. It is true she doesn’t know shit about his music!. Whatever, if it makes him happy then yeah congrats… HAHAHAHA!

    • Am I the only person in the world that doesn’t get twitter? Why do I give a _____ about some nobody’s sex life or drugged up ramblings?

  • I will cry myself to sleep now. Even though he looks like… what he looks… now, he is still Trent Reznor, means godlike, means… Goddammit, Trent, she is not quite as hot as me… :'(

  • Ah stop complaining! they doenst care about the aspects, they totally love each other and thats enought, just how they are. stop bitching about how she looks or how he looks. … jelaous people.

    on the other hand, Congrats!! it was about time!! ^^

  • I think that all of you losers who are trying to make fun of Trent and Maandig have no room to talk. You make fun of the way they look but at the same time I don’t see any of your pics…

    It is so easy to make fun of others to make you feel better about yourself isn’t it? What kind of skanks did you retards fuck? Trent may be from hicktown PA but he could still kick your ass ( not to mention all of the success and money he brings in ( also not to mention what he has done for music in general ).

    So go ahead and make fun of them, but remember where you losers are in your life!!!!

  • Mariqueen’s a ho. An unpleasant looking one. With unpleasant bangs. Wtf kind of name is that anyway. Mariqueen. Shit’s fucked.

    Trent stopped being mindblowingly sexy when he buffed up and cut his hair and started looking old (aka after With Teeth). And his music has also sucked after With Teeth.

    I give them a few years, three at most. Then they divorce and she takes his money and he returns to music (retirement? Stupid shit.)

    Fucking hell, Trent, why didn’t you marry in the ’90s? To someone who isn’t young enough to be your daughter? Haven’t you heard of the half-your-age-plus-seven rule? Damn.

  • Trent Reznor is a chauvenist dog. He’s a fucking has been hack who should just die. One day someone should write a dog about the trail of bile he leaves behind every time he moves his genitalia. And he doesn’t look pretty at all… never actually did. Expect now he looks like a waxed version of a GI JOE. For someone who cries about victimhood in his record he’s pretty predatory. Evil bitch. I wish I could meet Trent Reznor in life so I could punch him in the face.

  • it doesn’t even matter if YOU call her a ho.instead of complaining how she looks just go fuck yourselves, you fucking assholes!!!

  • give me a break. this won’t last. she moved in with him days after meeting him…on TWITTER! she was offering her “services” to other rich men and TR took the bait. We all know he doesn’t pick the best women and has mommy issues. We all know that Maryqueen is a known party girl and slept around LA…not good for TR’s sobriety.

    They just had a son named Lazarus Echo. It won’t be too much longer when she takes him to the cleaners. HTDA, the new band, is a joke!

  • SHE IS ONE FUGLY MARITHING. Reminds me of Ladyboy Mint. And I am a guy! Put a bag on that face Trent!
