Yes, the world is crazy as it seems. Will Smith hung out with Marilyn Manson and snapped this endearing yet hilarious picture of the duo. Smith seems to be giving the same Fresh Prince of Bel Air vibe. And Manson is being his iconic gothic self.
Will Smith is an actor we all know and love from movies like Men in Black, I am Legend to I: Robot. He’s recently made headline by starring in the new Aladdin Live Action movie and for appearing in this year’s YouTube Rewind 2018. He possesses a charming and hilarious personality. Though he has done some serious roles, we would never in a million years could have guessed that he hung out with Marilyn Manson. But this throwback picture does imply that:
Will Smith and Marilyn Manson are Polar Opposites
Marilyn Manson, whose real name is Brian Hugh Warner, has been under a controversial light in the pop culture. He is a singer and song-writer, and former music journalist. Warner is often dubbed as a negative influence on the younger generations for his unique gothic style that imitates his controversial personal beliefs. Marilyn Manson is apparently a fan of Anton LaVey, a priest of the literal Church of Satan. Yes, that does exist. These teachings heavily influence the music Marilyn Manson and his band of the same name makes. His music is often inspired from these beliefs like his album Antichrist Superstar, he’s quoted as saying,
“I feel strongly about the movement of what Marilyn Manson is to be. The Antichrist is the embodiment of people who disbelieve in Christianity. With the release of Antichrist Superstar it’s time for me to stop debating; to stop arguing about who’s right and who’s wrong. It’s time for me to assert myself as a leader to this generation of people who agree with what I have to say. We are unsatisfied with being told who to be. We want to be ourselves.”
Will Smith is certainly not a follower of Scientology as his wife Jada Pinkett Smith revealed in her Red Table Talk. But we don’t know about him following the Church of Satan, it’s not public knowledge yet. However, it’s heart warming to witness two completely opposite personalities still hang out despite the differences. It comes as a shock, but a pleasant one at that.
