Watch Johnny Depp Join Marilyn Manson for ‘The Beautiful People’
Die Antwoord rapper Ninja also joins the actor and the shock rocker to perform “The Beautiful People”
Marilyn MansonÂ performed at Los Angeles’ the Roxy on Halloween night, and for the concert’s encore, the shock rocker brought out both actorÂ Johnny DeppÂ and Die Antwoord’s Ninja to join him for “The Beautiful People.” Depp holds his own on guitar as Manson and Ninja parade around the stage to perform theÂ Antichrist SuperstarÂ single (via Consequence of Sound).
This isn’t the first time Manson and Depp have performed together. The duo previously hit the stage at the 4th Annual Revolver Golden Gods Awards in 2012, and Depp provided guitar onÂ Manson’s cover of Carly Simon’s “You’re So Vain”Â that was released as a bonus track.
It’s been an especially active year for Depp the musician as 2014 has seen the 51-year-old actorÂ rock out with Aerosmith,Â jam with Paul McCartney,Â briefly join the New Basement Tapes,Â noodle around with Willie Nelson,Â cover Danzig with Ryan AdamsÂ andÂ hit the studio for Butch Walker’s upcoming LP.
Manson is alsoÂ a constant at Depp’s red carpet premieres. Their friendship dates back to at least 1999’sÂ Sleepy Hollow, and since then Manson has popped up at the premieres of Depp-starring films like 2001’sÂ From Hell, 2006’sÂ Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest, 2011’sÂ The Rum DiaryÂ and this year’sÂ Transcendence.
Manson recently unveiledÂ his catchy yet depressing new single “Third Day of a Seven Day Binge,”Â the first single off Manson’s 2015-bound new album and his first LP since 2012’sÂ Born Villain. The rocker also made an appearance onÂ Sons of AnarchyÂ earlier this year in the role of a white supremacist.
