Is Lana Del Rey Dating Marilyn Manson?

A photo of Barry Manilow, Marilyn Manson, and Lana Del Rey

I’m so sorry, you guys. I know that when you started your day, when you got on your computer and came over here to Evil Beet to check out the goings on, it never even entered your mind that this was a possibility. I know it never entered mine. I actually wasn’t too sure we’d hear all that much about poor Lana Del Rey ever again, ever since her tour was postponed back in February. But here we are. And I’m not too sure how we got here.

By the way, that photo up there was taken backstage at an awards show in Germany last week. I have no idea what Barry Manilow has to do with anything, but that’s usually the case. However, you can see the new lovebirds, Lana and Marilyn Manson, up there, pressed close together. That’s something, isn’t it?

Here’s something else: the actual rumor itself. Be warned, it’s pretty racy!

Shock rocker Marilyn Manson has sparked rumors he’s dating rising star Lana Del Rey after they were spotted sneaking into a hotel together.

The pair hooked up at a restaurant in Berlin, Germany the night before the Echo Awards on Thursday and were seen leaving the eatery together in a mini-van after midnight.

Del Rey was booked into the city’s Concorde Hotel but was spotted arriving with Manson at his hotel, the Grand Hyatt, and they were then photographed sneaking into the elevator together, according to local publication B.Z.

OMG, scandal upon scandal!!!

But really, something about this just makes me feel all icky and gross, and I’m not quite sure what it is. While I do enjoy Lana Del Rey, I don’t love her to the point of having serious, serious issues with her taste in men like I would with other celebrities. And while Marilyn Manson generally gives me the willies, this still feels weird in a slightly different way …

Oh, God. I figured out what it is, why this is so gross to me: who’s going to tell poor little Taylor Momsen?

  • Ummmm…. Other than Marilyn Manson not being the best looking man he’s actually pretty damn talented and seems to have more brains than most other people. Can’t stand Lana Del Rey (her plastic face!!), but I feel I need to speak up for Manson lol

  • Dating, schmating! The real story here is this threesome in a photo. Don’t know how the universe turned to put these three disparate people together. It’s like the beginning of a bad joke; Barry Manilow, Marilyn Manson and Lana Del Rey walked into a bar together…
