Justin Bieber 'a real piece of s***' - Marilyn Manson

Metal artist Marilyn Manson has launched a scathing attack on pop singer Justin Bieber, describing the 'Beauty and a Beat' hitmaker as too "touchy-feely" and "a real piece of sh-t".

The remarks come after a dispute that started last year after Bieber released a T-shirt which had a design borrowing heavily from a T-shirt the 'Antichrist Superstar' singer had earlier brought out.

Bieber's T-shirt was almost identical to Manson's original T-shirt, but had his name on the back instead. It reportedly retailed for US$195 (C$237) - a huge increase on the US$19 (C$23) Manson's T-shirt could be bought for.

While Manson was alleged to have signed off on the T-shirt, he denied that in a recent interview - and said he took all the profits Bieber's team earned from the piece of merchandise from him.

"They didn't even fight - they were just like, 'Yeah, we already know, we did wrong, so here's the money,'" he told Consequence of Sound.

What to watch next

Manson said he and Bieber recently met - and the latter was wearing the T-shirt that had caused so much drama between them.

"He said to me, 'I made you relevant again.' Bad mistake to say to me," Manson said.

"He was a real piece of sh-t in the way he had the arrogance to say that. He was a real touchy-feely guy too, like, 'Yo yo bro!' and touches you when he's talking.

"I'm like, you need to stand down, you're di-- height on me, okay? Alright? So stand down son."

However despite Bieber's alleged snarky comment, Manson revealed he got the last laugh.

"The next day I told him I'd be at his soundcheck at Staples Center to do 'Beautiful People'. He believed that I'd show up, because he was that stupid."
