When it comes to novels, there are few as controversial as Vladimir Nabokov’s “Lolita”. So, it shouldn’t be that surprising to see that the book inspired Marilyn Manson who built his entire career around shocks. Add in the fact that he was having a May-December romance with Evan Rachel Wood and it was a perfect fit. Manson would name his ode to the tale of pedophilia, “Heart Shaped Glasses” which is a reference to the Stanley Kubrick film based on the book. Manson couldn’t just leave it at that level though. Being that shock rocker that he is, he decided to add an equally controversial music video to the mix which included allusions to orgies, suicide and public masturbation; and the sex scenes between Wood & Manson certainly push the envelope. Nothing like bloodplay to spice up a love scene, if you’re Marilyn Manson.
