Yay or Nay?
Remember back in 2012 when Marilyn Manson took shots at Lady Gaga and said, “I have a hard time liking her music?” Well it seems we’re all past that now… at least, when you believe the rumors circulating around. You see, it all began last August 19 when Lady Gaga posted photos on Twitter and Instagram that gave everyone some Manson vibes specifically this photo, which many fans pointed out, reminded them of Mechanical Animals.

Perhaps unintentionally, Lady Gaga fueled the rumors further by adding more bizarre and mysterious images without any context. This led to more people speculating about a possible collaboration with the two artists especially since everyone’s been waiting for her to drop her new album.
And because the internet is full of online detectives, someone pointed out that Manson also started following Gaga on both Twitter and Instagram (although she hasn’t followed back yet) and even LIKED the seemingly cryptic photos. If they are indeed collaborating, this wouldn’t be the first time because Gaga featured Manson in her 2009 single “LoveGame.”
