Lady Gaga and Marilyn Manson: “Love Game” (Streaming)

    Yes, you did read that right. Marilyn Manson and current Queen of Pop Lady Gaga have teamed up for a duet, which is actually a subtle reworking of her single, “Love Game.” Manson has been vocal in his praise of Gaga, calling her: “very smart.” He told Rolling Stone magazine that Gaga “knows exactly what she’s doing. She’s a great musician, she’s a great singer, and she’s laughing when she’s doing it, the same way that I am.”

    Perez Hilton has got the scoop on their unlikely duet together, which is a wonderfully demented take on of one of Gaga’s biggest hits. Manson’s contribution is minimal, and it almost sounds like he’s rapping(!) some of his lyrics, although most of them are delivered in the kind of gothy drawl he’s known for.

    Perez has also got some in-studio photographs of the pair—the song and pictures can be sampled on his site. Gaga is about to embark on another unlikely collaboration later this year, with a North American tour alongside Kanye West planned for the fall.
