Artist, professional provocateur and lunchbox enthusiast Marilyn Manson shared a music video clip for his new song “SAY10” that may just Trump your nightmares tonight.
The man who is decapitated wears a suit, a red tie and has a blonde hair similar to the Republican presidential candidate’s hue.
Manson, who told The Daily Beast earlier this year that he will not vote in this year’s election because he refuses to choose between “cat shit and dog shit,” is equally elusive about whether or not the man in the video is indeed intended to represent Trump.
He told The Daily Beast in an article published today that the video is open to interpretation.
It seems like a time for me as an artist, and as an American artist, to make something that causes a new set of questions to arise that aren’t simply statements. Marilyn Manson
“Right now we’re in such a state of confusion when it comes to religion, politics, sexuality, and how they all tie together, and it’s being turned into a circus and a sideshow — and that’s something that I’ve been described as a ringleader of,” Manson told the outlet. “It seems like a time for me as an artist, and as an American artist, to make something that causes a new set of questions to arise that aren’t simply statements.”
Manson is no stranger to political controversy. In early 1999, he filmed the video for the song “Coma White,” which featured a reenactment of John F. Kennedy’s assassination.
