Rumor Patrol: Is Lana Del Ray Dating Marilyn Manson?
File this one under “bizarre but unsurprising.”
“It” girl Lana Del Ray is rumored to be having secret sexy slumber parties with aging rocker Marilyn Manson. The two were spotted in Berlin attending Germany’s Echo Music Awards, and German tabloid B.Z. reportedly has photographic evidence of the lovebirds sneaking into an elevator together at the Concorde Hotel.
Lana, 25, seemingly has a thing for long-haired rocker dudes: Her last reported boyfriend was Scottish musician Barrie James O’Neill, whom she was last spotted with just last month. Marilyn, 43, was most recently engaged to actress Evan Rachel Wood.
While it’s unclear whether this is in fact a love connection and no more than two Americans making friends abroad, Lana and Marilyn do have a few things in common. Not only do the two singers share a penchant for side parts and red lipstick, they both abandoned their real names for more fame-worthy monikers. Lana’s real name is Lizzie Grant, Marilyn’s is Brian Hugh Warner.
