I had something completely different planned for today but while cleaning up my desktop (not, that is not a euphemism and if it were, it would be a damned poor one) I came across this photo that I must have saved.
I think I remember why. I guess I had heard they were together and realized what a ridiculous thing that was but when I saw it with my own eyes - I mean, the proof that they even know each other - I must have blocked it out until now.
It's been, what, six months or so since Matter met Anti-Matter? For the benefit of my dad, and anyone else who does not recognize these two by sight, the happy couple is:
In the Light corner, beautiful 20 year old actress Evan Rachel Wood, best known for her roles in the independent film Thirteen and last year's mainstream hit Across The Universe.
In the dark corner, brutally ugly 39 year old musician Marilyn Manson, famous for his outrageous horror themed stage shows and hit albums like Antichrist Superstar and Mechanical Animals. He is notorious for his heavy drug and alcohol abuse and was previously engaged to actress Rose McGowan and divorced from burlesque star Dita Von Teese.
These aren't two celebrities who were snapped standing together at a party. They live together. She lies down with him. They are "in love."
Look, we've all seen couples that seem unlikely to the outside world. We can't know what is really going on here. They could be the new Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward for all we know. But what is your theory? Daddy issues? Good girl/rebellious phase? Junkie/Pusher? Please discuss.
