Choice Video: Marilyn Manson feat. Johnny Depp & Ninja – “The Beautiful People”

by on November 4, 2014

Usually here at Perspective Daily, we limit our Choice Video selections to traditional music videos.  We do this because, well, although the art form of music videos has relocated to YouTube and Vimeo (R.I.P. Fuse, MTV, etc.), it has not lost its mental and visual charms.  We hope to fill the gap left by taste-making VJs with our own attempts at the making of taste.  However, for one time only, allow us to bathe in the surface level of coolness of today’s chosen clip.  This one is certainly not an actual music video, but rather a fan-shot clip from frequently-mentioned-on-Perspective-Daily Marilyn Manson‘s recent Halloween show.

Essentially, all you really need to know is that Johnny Depp shows up to play guitar on “The Beautiful People” alongside some guest vocals from Die Antwoord’s Ninja.  A few years ago, there might have been some internet discussion about just how well the discography and/or persona of Marilyn Manson would age in a post-MTV landscape.  With songs as good as “The Beautiful People,” I’d say it ages pretty well.
