Cooper revisited the topic of Marilyn Manson in a 2019 Loudwire
interview, explaining how he still enjoys Manson's music despite not agreeing with the messages in his songs. "There's lots of great music that I love that if I really get down to it, I'm like 'Yeah, I don't agree with those lyrics,'" he said. "I guess Marilyn Manson comes to mind. I love Marilyn Manson, he sings a lot of things that I'm like, 'Yeah, I'm probably not into that.'"
He added: "To me, great music is about authenticity, and it's about singing something you believe. If I'm listening to someone saying something they believe, I usually don't really care what it is."
