Marilyn Manson Reportedly Contributing To Kanye West’s “Donda 2”

It looks like Kanye West (aka Ye) is still collaborating with Marilyn Manson, despite the numerous disturbing rape and sexual assault allegations against him. The shock rocker is reportedly contributing to the rapper’s new album “Donda 2,” which is expected to be released on February 22.

West’s collaborator and producer Digital Nas told Rolling Stone the following:

“I see Marilyn a lot in the studio. Like, every day I go to the studio, Marilyn is there working on ‘Donda 2‘.”

He also added:

“[West] doesn’t want Marilyn to play rap beat. He wants Marilyn to play what he makes, and then Ye will take parts of that and sample parts of that and use parts of that, like he did [generally when making] ‘Yeezus‘. … He has some producers from ‘Yeezus‘ working on ‘Donda 2‘ this time around, [as well as] Marilyn, me, a bunch of producers from ‘Donda 1‘.”

Digital Nas also had the following to say about West‘s decision to work with Manson:

“I think it’s moreso that Ye is coming from a standpoint of like, ‘We all make mistakes.’ I think that’s maybe why he had DaBaby and Marilyn at that one show. I’m just assuming it is from a standpoint of like, ‘We’re all sinners. We all make mistakes. We shouldn’t point the finger at someone for the mistakes they’ve made or something like that.”

This news comes after it was revealed that Manson is currently eligible for a Grammy thanks to his work on West’s 2021 album “Donda,” which is up for “Album Of The Year.” Manson guested on “Jail pt 2” from that effort alongside DaBaby, who is currently facing backlash for making homophobic comments onstage. He also has writing credits on the song “Jail.”

If it is, they can submit for consideration.

What we will control is our stages, our shows, our events, our red carpets. We’ll take a look at anyone who is asking to be a part of that, asking to be in attendance, and we’ll make our decisions at that point. But we’re not going to be in the business of restricting people from submitting their work for our voters to decide on.”

Marilyn Manson Accuser Says Seeing The Singer Praying With Kanye West And Justin Bieber Was “Like Being Retraumatized”

As previously reported, Marilyn Manson recently made headlines after he was seen praying with Kanye West and Justin Bieber during a “Sunday Service” event. Many have assumed that the move was part of a publicity stunt to distract people from the numerous rape and sexual assault allegations against him. One of his accusers, actress/model Ashley Morgan Smithline, has even commented on the prayer circle, saying that seeing Manson with West and Bieber was “like being retraumatized.”

Smithline, who is currently suing Manson for sexual assault, abuse, etc., told People the following:

“It makes everyone really fucking sick. This is just like being retraumatized. And it’s just showing the point that the world doesn’t really care if you rape and if you beat and hurt all these [women], you can do whatever you want, basically, if you have money and you’re a guy and you’re famous.”

A spokesperson for Manson also responded saying that his religious beliefs are “nobody’s business.”

As previously reported, Manson is currently facing abuse allegations from at least 16 women. Those accusations were initially spurred by actress Evan Rachel Wood, who said that the musician “horrifically abused [her] for years.” Since then many more women have come forward with allegations against the singer, including Smithline, actress Esmé Bianco, who filed a lawsuit after accusing him of abuse and human trafficking, actress Bianca Allaine, who described him as the “most terrifying person [she has] ever met in [her] life,” his former assistant Ashley Walters, who filed a lawsuit against him for sexual assault, sexual battery, sexual harassment, etc., and another woman, identified as “Jane Doe,” who filed a lawsuit after accusing him of rape and death threats.

Wood has since shared more details regarding her time with Manson as well, including his alleged use of anti-Semitic and racial slurs. She has also claimed that his current wife Lindsay Usich and a woman named Leslee Lane threatened to release underage photos of her to destroy her career.

After all of this news broke, the Los Angeles County Sherriff’s Department confirmed that they were investigating Manson. Allaine also mentioned that she was planning to speak to the FBI.

Since Wood made her initial statement, Manson has been dropped by his manager Tony Ciulla, his label Loma Vista Recordings, his talent agency CAA, and a couple of TV shows. Others that worked with Manson have also come forward, including his former assistant Dan Cleary, who said he witnessed the musician abusing Usich.

Two of his other exes, Rose McGowan and Dita Von Teese, have both commented as well. Von Teese’s statement was the most recent and she said that the “details made public do not match [her] personal experience” with the singer, while also adding that “abuse of any kind has no place in any relationship.”

A number of other musicians have also issued statements including Ellie Roswell (Wolf Alice), who said she once caught Manson “filming up [her] skirt with a GoPro,” Phoebe Bridgers, who said Manson previously “referred to a room in his house as the ‘r*pe room’,” Otep, who said Usich would call her house “hysterical because he was on another drug binge, threatening her life,” Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails), who said that he has “been vocal over the years about [his] dislike of Manson as a person,” and Wes Borland (Limp Bizkit), who said that “every single thing that people have said about him is fucking true.” Actor Corey Feldman also claimed that Manson put “spies” into his life as part of a “decades long mental and emotional abuse” campaign.

For his part, Manson claimed that the accusations “are horrible distortions of reality.”
