I think the issue nowadays with kids is they have horrible role models. They look up to the wrong people and nobody’s there to tell them it’s wrong. When I was 14 I was obsessed with Marilyn Manson and while his appearance made people shudder that man had a very philosophical approach to the world and I strongly believe, even now, he was a great role model for me. While everyone thought he was the devil incarnated I felt like this was the only person who understood me. He never hurt anyone, never lied, wasn’t out getting DUIs, when his wife left him he wrote an album about his love for her, but now you see punk ass “stars” cheating on their girlfriends left and right. This man, at a time , was the only person who kept me going, when everyone else was screaming at me to change he showed me my way to victory. It wasn’t because of his popularity, it wasn’t because of his looks. It was because he saw the world differently than everyone else and to me, that meant everything to know I wasn’t alone.
