American rock artist Brian Hugh Warner, better known by his stage name Marilyn Manson, was born January 5, 1969. It became famous for him to be the lead singer of the band with the same name.
He has been the only steady member of the band since it started in 1989. His stage name, like the names of the other original members of the band, came from combining the names of two American cultural icons who were at odds with each other: actress Marilyn Monroe and cult leader Charles Manson.

Marilyn Manson’s Early Years
He was born in Canton, Ohio, on January 5, 1969, and his real name is Brian Hugh Warner. His teachers at Heritage Christian School told him what kinds of songs were evil and offensive to God. They would play music that they thought was “wrong” sometimes. Brian Warner, when he was young, fell in love with this kind of music.
Warner went to college and studied journalism after finishing high school in 1987. Then he talked to a bunch of artists, like Groovie Mann and Trent Reznor, who were early influences on his own music career. Warner was most affected by the second singer, who was a member of Nine Inch Nails. In the end, Reznor helped Manson make his first record.
Marilyn Manson’s Personal Life
During his work, Marilyn Manson has been romantically involved with a number of women, such as Rose McGowan, Dita Von Teese, and Evan Rachel Wood. People found out that Manson was dating photographer Lindsay Usich in 2012.
Manson and Usich got married in a small wedding during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. Manson is also friends with star Johnny Depp and is Lily-Rose Depp’s godfather.
Several women, including Evan Rachel Wood’s ex-partner, came forward in 2021 and said Marilyn Manson had abused them sexually and mentally. During the 19-month investigation, the LACSD presented its results in September 2022. California DA George Gascón decided that more evidence was needed before charges could be brought.
Marilyn Manson’s Music Career
At the end of the 1980s, Brian Warner and his friend Scott Putesky formed their first band. Their stage names were made up by combining Hollywood sex symbols with the names of serial killers. Brian Warner played Marilyn Manson, a mix of Marilyn Monroe and Charles Manson, and Putesky played Daisy Berkowitz. In the end, the band was also called Marilyn Manson.
In the beginning, Marilyn Manson was quickly kicked out of some places where she played. So, the group quickly changed its name and became different things, like “Satan on Fire” and “Mrs. Scabtree.”
