MARILYN MANSON Talks Johnny Depp's Inclusion on 'Born Villain' Album

Manson's eighth studio album is set for release May 1st and the shock rock icon commented on actor Johnny Depp's contribution to the Carly Simon cover song 'You're So Vain'.
Marilyn Manson's upcoming new album 'Born Villain' will be his first record not released through long time label Interscope. Instead, Manson will unleash the album through Cooking Vinyl and his own imprint, Hell Inc. "In the past once I turned it (an album) over to the record label, what happened wasn't always to my liking. A lot of it was more their stupidity, trying to fit me into a hole I didn't belong in," said Manson. Fans who pick up the new record should look for upcoming Dark Shadows actor Johnny Depp's cameo on the cover song 'You're So Vain'. Manson broke down the inclusion saying:
"I've known Johnny Depp since I was 19. He called me up a couple months ago and said, 'Hey, do you want to get together and record something?' . . . We recorded 'You're So Vain' because we thought the song would be an amusing complement to the record -- not a piece of the record as a whole but, as a bonus track, it really states the obvious about where he and I both are as artists," said Manson.
