Marilyn Manson has very much carved out a niche for himself. His striking/disturbing looks, heavy metal sound, and reportedly rather strange personal life, have made him both a fascinating and polarizing figure in the music world. The Ohio-born singer, also known as Brian Hugh Warner, formed the first iteration of his band, Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids, in the early 90s. Their first album was released in 1994, and they quickly gained a following. Though the line-up has changed over the years, Marilyn Manson has continued to release popular albums and to perform for sell-out crowds. He's enjoyed two Platinum selling albums and three more Gold albums, and he has a rabid cult following that has helped to chart seven of his releases. In addition to his music career, he has also appeared in a variety of films, and is an accomplished visual artist. You would think that with all of his success, he would be living the hardcore rocker lifestyle. You'd be wrong. Until recently, he was living above a liquor store on Santa Monica Boulevard. This month, he decided to settle down, buying a two-story house in the Hollywood Hills.
Marilyn Manson's house in the Hollywood Hills is 2,711 square feet and has two bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. The home also features a massive living room, double height ceilings, multiple fireplaces, and a large dining room with a separate sitting area. There is also a pseudo guest area in Marilyn Manson's house, which is made up of a single bedroom, a bathroom, a storage area, and a private patio. Outside of Marilyn Manson's house, there is a concrete terrace, a small landscaped yard area, and a rather funky fountain. He paid $1.085 million for his new home, which was most likely purchased out of deference to his current girlfriend. Only time will tell whether either the home, or the woman, will last.
