In March we informed you that Marilyn Manson took a selfie with Justin Bieber and posted it via Instagram, even though earlier the shock rocker had frowned upon Bieber’s wearing his merchandise. In the selfie, Manson himself was wearing a Bieber shirt, and his comment was “Bigger than Bieber”. But now the rocker’s got a more serious reason to get angry with Bieber’s merchandise initiative.

A few hours ago Manson posted an article via Twitter, stating that Bieber has been selling Manson t-shirts as his own merchandise. The words on the back of the t-shirt are the answer to Manson’s comment “Bigger than Bieber”: it reads, “Bigger Than Satan… Bieber”. And the price of the t-shirt is outrageous – $195.
Now, one thing is wearing a t-shirt with someone’s face on it but another one is making money on the image that belongs to another artist. It doesn’t seem like Manson had granted Bieber a permission to sell his stuff, the author of the article points out, so let’s see if the rocker is planning to do anything about it.
