Nine Inch Nails Shoot Video With Marilyn Manson
Sorelle Saidman reports: Shock rocker reportedly appears in drag in industrial band's clip.
(MTV News Online) — Industrial-rockers Nine Inch Nails
shot a video this weekend, with shock-rocker Marilyn
Manson taking part in the filming, Los Angeles radio
station KROQ-FM reported.
According to a KROQ staffer, NIN frontman Trent
Reznor and company staged a shoot in Palmdale, Calif.,
for the song "Starfuckers, Inc." (RealAudio excerpt),
during which Manson appeared in drag.
In the video's narrative, Reznor pulls into
a carnival in a limousine. He tries to win
a prize for his date, who turns out to be
A spokesperson for Nothing Records
declined to comment on the KROQ
The video pairing would apparently mark
the end of a long-running
Manson-Reznor feud that is said to
have started when Reznor took offense
at stories in Manson's tell-all
autobiography, "The Long Hard Road
Out of Hell."
Meanwhile, Reznor recently told a
Cleveland newspaper that he is
unhappy with his label, Interscope
Records. Reznor, speaking from Los
Angeles in advance of the Nine Inch
Nails tour that opens Wednesday in
Cleveland, told the city's Plain Dealer
that the band, not the label, was picking
up the tab for the tour.
"Interscope used to be a label that believed in artists,"
Reznor told the paper. "Now it's all about profit, period. ...
I can either sit back and bitch about it and let the record
drop off the charts, or I can promote it myself."
Nine Inch Nails' The Fragile (1999) has shipped 2 million
copies, but it has sold only 705,000 copies, according to
sales tracker SoundScan. Reznor hopes to boost sales
with extensive touring, the Cleveland paper reported.
Calls to Interscope were not returned.
