The Word: Marilyn Manson is teaming up with … Disney?
Shock rocker of our ’90s hearts Marilyn Manson will be joining the cast of the Disney/ABC show “Once Upon a Time,” reports Rolling Stone. The singer will be voicing the character of Shadow.“We’ve always been enormous fans of Marilyn Manson,” show creators and executive producers Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz told the magazine. “We wanted to cast someone with the vocal ability to make our skin crawl.”
For those of us old enough to remember the ’90s, let me tell you: With his references to Satanism, cross-dressing and dark music videos, Manson really, really freaked out old people — like, even more than twerking. And now he’s going to be on a Disney-affiliated show. God bless America.
