“Transformers” star Shia LaBeouf will reportedly shoot a documentary about the making of MARILYN MANSON‘s new album.
The actor, who recently shot and edited the video for “Marijuana”, a song from Kid Cudi‘s “Man On The Moon II: The Legend Of Mr. Rager” CD, describes his recent meeting with Manson during an appearance on the talk show “Live With Regis And Kelly”. “He’s a real sweet guy,” Shia said. “He’s an eccentric human being. He lives in West Hollywood above a liquor store. There’s no lights in the room. And there’s sort of these big metal doors and he opens the door and he’s in a kimono, a big pink kimono… It’s sort of like a lair. No lights, so you have to use your cellphone to guide you around… We sat and watched movies for a while…. and talked about what kind of visuals he wanted on his album. Which are all really eccentric ideas. All things I can’t really say out loud because this is morning television.”
LaBeouf previously directed Cage‘s “I Never Knew You” video. He appears in the third “Transformers” movie, “Transformers: Dark Of The Moon”, which opened on June 29.
Marilyn Manson last month released a 26-second video teaser for what he calls “an undisclosed song with an unreleased title.” You can check out the clip below.
The singer’s eighth studio album is set for release later in the year through Cooking Vinyl Records.
Drummer Ginger Fish (real name: Kenneth Robert Wilson) quit MARILYN MANSON in February and has since joined ROB ZOMBIE.
MARILYN MANSON in 2009 parted ways with longtime record label Interscope following the disappointing sales performance of the shock-rocker’s latest album, entitled “The High End Of Low”.
“The High End Of Low” was Manson‘s first album with longtime bassist Twiggy Ramirez since 2000’s “Holy Wood”.
