Songwriter-producer and R&B chart-topper Ne-Yo will soon head into
the studio with Marilyn Manson. How did this — oh, let’s just say
it — completely and utterly bizarre coupling come about? “In a few
interviews, I talked about taking pride in my diversity — being able to
work with a Mary J. Blige, then a Michael Bolton, and then a Marilyn
Manson,” Ne-Yo told EW.com on the red carpet at the American Music Awards last Sunday.
“[Manson’s] people heard about that, and were like, ‘Put your money where your mouth is,’ so
now we’re in the process of getting those sessions together.” No word yet on when a new Marilyn Manson might be released.
