My Chemical Romance Surprised By 'Two-faced' Manson
LATEST: My Chemical Romance star Frank Iero has branded Marilyn Manson two-faced for criticising the band in song, because he's always been nice to them whenever the two acts have met. Earlier this month (Jun07), Manson claimed his song Mutilation Is The Most Sincere Form Of Flattery was inspired by My Chemical Romance, adding, "I'm embarrassed to be me because these people are doing a really sad, pitiful, shallow version of what I've done." But My Chemical Romance guitarist Frank Iero insists he was amazed by Manson's outburst, because the shock rocker has always been so pleasant in person. Iero says, "The funny thing is that he seems to have lashed out at us about the make-up. That's weird to me, because I had heard of Alice Cooper before I heard of Marilyn Manson. "I don't know how he could be mad at us. We never came out and said we were going to call ourselves by a girl's name and then a serial killer's name. "I'm really sorry if he feels we ripped him off. It would have been nice if he could have said something to our faces but he's been all smiles every time I've seen him. Maybe he's doing it for the press. Some people just like to talk."
