Marilyn Manson is an American singer-songwriter, record producer, actor, painter, and writer. He is best known as the lead vocalist of the band of the same name, which he co-founded with guitarist Daisy Berkowitz in 1989. Manson released his first EP, titled Smells Like Children, on October 24, 1995. The EP was certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America, and was spearheaded by its sole single, a cover of “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)”, originally written and performed by Eurythmics. The song’s music video became a staple on MTV and helped to establish the band in the mainstream. His other hit singles includes “The Dope Show” and “The Beautiful People.” Manson was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance for “mOBSCENE” and became known for theatrical concerts and his disturbing, horror-inspired fashion, such as wearing a decorated contact lens in one eye, black leather pants, and heavy stage makeup. As an actor, Manson made his film debut in David Lynch’s Lost Highway (1997), and has since appeared in a variety of minor roles and cameos.
