Marilyn Manson May Have Beheaded Trump in His New ‘SAY10' Video

Watch an NSFW excerpt here.

Ever the instigator, and a man who clearly is no stranger to controversy, Marilyn Manson has just shared a clip of his new video for the single “SAY10.” It begins in religiously irreverent fashion with shots of Mr. Manson holding a bible, eventually ripping pages out of it. It then takes a more surprising and  gruesome turn, as it segways to images of what appear to be the decapitated body of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, surrounded by a pool of blood. What he is saying or commenting on is somewhat unclear as Manson had already proclaimed earlier this year that he would abstain from voting in the election.

In an interview with The Daily Beast, Manson said “...The visuals are meant to create contemplation. Because it’s obviously bigger than just tomorrow.” “It’s about the desperate acts of people who believe something that is preached by an unbeliever.”  

“Right now we’re in such a state of confusion when it comes to religion, politics, sexuality, and how they all tie together, and it’s being turned into a circus and a sideshow—and that’s something that I’ve been described as a ringleader of,” Manson continues. “It seems like a time for me as an artist, and as an American artist, to make something that causes a new set of questions to arise that aren’t simply statements.”  

This isn’t the first time that Manson has referenced presidential candidates or presidents in his music videos. If you recall, he and his fiancee at the time Rose McGowan played the roles of JFK and Jackie O in a reenactment of John F. Kennedy’s 1963 assassination for the 1999 video for Mechanical Animals“Coma White.”

Watch the “SAY10” snippet here and read into it however you will. SAY10 will release early next year.
