The Manson camp saw things from a very different perspective, however. “He was [already] wearing the shirt that had his name on my shirt, and he said to me, ‘I made you relevant again,’” Manson told Consequence of Sound in September 2017. “Bad mistake to say to me.”
“The next day I told him I’d be at his sound-check at Staples Center to do ‘Beautiful People,’” Manson continued, before stating that he never had any intention of turning up. With regards to his non-appearance, Manson said, “[Bieber] believed that I’d show up, because he was that stupid.” And according to Manson, it was around this time that Bieber admitted that the t-shirt design was his idea.
