Rock star Marilyn Manson kicked off the long Halloween weekend Tuesday night hosting a horrifying Halloween bash at Hyde Bellagio’s Lost Angels Insider Night.
Manson, in a black pea coat, leather pants, combat boots and mirror-tinted aviators, hammed it up for photographers and dozens of costume-clad fans waiting on the red carpet outside Hyde. “The Prince of Darkness” gave photographers an up-close look at his white-faced makeup, making wildly animated gestures and faces into their lenses (none of them reportedly cracked).
Inside Hyde, Manson, accompanied by fiancee Lindsay Usich and friends, made his way to a VIP booth decorated with skeletons and spider webs. Hyde’s performance artists, dressed in ghoulish costumes, greeted the group with a lights and letters spelling out “M-A-N-S-O-N.” Manson grabbed the “N” and wrote the words “Just Say Now” with his crimson lipstick tube, referencing his hit “Ka-boom Ka-boom.”
The spectacle continued when DJ Konflikt brought the club to a frenzy with Manson’s “The Beautiful People.” Manson then leapt into the booth with the DJ, grabbed the mic and rapped along to Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z’s “Holy Grail.” Of course.
Fans gathered around the table as Manson ripped skull decorations off the walls and hurled them into the crowd, even stepping behind Hyde’s cannon to blast confetti onto the dance floor. Later in the night, Manson received a bottle of bubbly from the Big Bad Wolf (say that fast 10 times) and partied into the early morning hours.
