Though Marilyn Manson is known for wearing a pentagram ring in his daily life and is a member of the Church of Satan, he shrugs off suggestions that he's an actual Satanist. Our Spring Issue cover star recently told us, "I may have this ring, but Satanism, shit like that, it's whatever." This ambivalence, however,  hasn't stopped Manson from continuing to take creative inspiration from the dark side. The new black and white video for his Pale Emperor single "The Mephistopheles of Los Angeles," directed by Francesco Carrozzini, opens with Michael K. Williams as our Faustian narrator and shows Manson presiding over his various disciples of the damned all without smearing his MAC Diva lipstick. Watch above.
