Justin Bieber was selling this shirts for $195 at Barneys without Marilyn Manson’s permission.
The feud dates back to last year, when the Canadian pop star, 23, claimed the shock rocker, 48, had given him permission to use his image on a T-shirt – which has the words “Bigger than Satan … Bieber” embroidered on the back.
According to the rocker, when the two finally met, Bieber “was [already] wearing the shirt that had his name on my shirt, and he said to me, ‘I made you relevant again.’”
It’s the comment about making the multi-platinum musician “relevant again” that really seems to have set off Manson.
“He was a real piece of s–t in the way he had the arrogance to say that,” Manson told the website. “He was a real touchy-feely guy, too, like, ‘yo, yo bro!’ and touches you when he’s talking. I’m like, you need to stand down, you’re d–k height on me, OK? Alright? So stand down, son.”
To get back at him, Manson then fooled Bieber into thinking he’d appear on stage with him at a concert to perform a duet of the latter’s hit “Beautiful People,” even though he had no intention of doing so.
“He believed that I’d show up, because he was that stupid,” the musician said.
Manson also claims he made Bieber and Lorenzo pay for using his name on the shirt, saying, “They didn’t even fight, they were just like, ‘Yea, we already know, we did wrong, so here’s the money.’ ”
In addition to the money he presumably made from the shirt, the feud also comes at a good time for Manson. His new album, “Heaven Upside Down,” will be released on Oct. 6.
