Justin Bieber Apologizes To Marilyn Manson Over T-Shirt Copyright Infringement
Marilyn Manson is attacking Justin Bieber but in an oh-so-gentle manner! For context, this is what happened between Bieber and Manson: Bieber sold a t-shirt with an image of Marilyn and Justin's name on it.
In all of its cringe-glory, the t-shirt read, "Bigger than God," over the pop star's name. The Purpose singer was selling the expensive merchandise without Marilyn's permission and essentially profiting off of the likeness of the Beautiful People rock-singer.
Manson's team told Bieber to stop, so they did, refunding all of the money entirely. According to the legendary rock singer, Bieber's team said they knew it was wrong and surrendered immediately. They gave Manson all of the proceeds as soon as they were confronted.
In the original post which advertised Justin's t-shirt with Manson's image, they wrote that they had received Manson's permission to use his picture. However, according to Marilyn, he did not permit them to do so.
In an interview with Billboard, Marilyn divulged, "I ran into (Bieber) in some fancy bar where a lot of celebrities - a word that I despise - go," and he claimed he saw a "little girl" there who turned out to be Justin.
Marilyn claimed that Bieber was one of those touchy people that have to hit you when they talk to you, adding, "he comes up to about d*ck height."
Bieber allegedly told the singer, "I made you relevant again," which struck him as being incredibly arrogant and self-absorbed.
Manson later told Consequence of Sound that Justin was a "piece of sh*t" in the manner in which he had the gall to say that to him.
In a text message conversation which Marilyn revealed on Howard Stern's show, Justin Bieber wrote through writing, "I thought we had a pretty pleasant interaction. Also, if anything wasn't squared away with the t-shirts, I'm so sorry. Anyway, regardless, it stung seeing that I came off as an a**hole or even just was an a**hole, I'm sorry?"
