Page Six reports:

Justin Bieber and Marilyn Manson may not seem like the most natural of rivals, but that hasn’t stopped them from engaging in one of the more bizarre celebrity beefs of 2017.

The feud dates back to last year, when the Canadian pop star, 23, claimed the shock rocker, 48, had given him permission to use his image on a T-shirt – which has the words “Bigger than Satan … Bieber” embroidered on the back – that Barneys sold for $195.

“Thank you Marilyn Manson for signing off on the ‘Bigger than Satan’ x Justin Bieber tee,” Fear of God’s Jerrry Lorenzo, who designed the shirt, wrote on Instagram in July 2016. “Thanks for understanding our approach and re-interpretation of your vision. Never would of thought printing on my vintage T-shirt collection would take us this far.”

But here’s the problem, Manson told Consequence of Sound he never approved the use of his image and name for the shirt.

According to the rocker, when the two finally met, Bieber “was [already] wearing the shirt that had his name on my shirt, and he said to me, ‘I made you relevant again.’”

It’s the comment about making the multi-platinum musician “relevant again” that really seems to have set off Manson.

“He was a real piece of s–t in the way he had the arrogance to say that,” Manson told the website. “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 d–k height on me, OK? Alright? So stand down, son.”

To get back at him, Manson then fooled Bieber into thinking he’d appear on stage with him at a concert to perform a duet of the latter’s hit “Beautiful People,” even though he had no intention of doing so.

“He believed that I’d show up, because he was that stupid,” the musician said.

Manson also claims he made Bieber and Lorenzo pay for using his name on the shirt, saying, “They didn’t even fight, they were just like, ‘Yea, we already know, we did wrong, so here’s the money.’ ”

In addition to the money he presumably made from the shirt, the feud also comes at a good time for Manson. His new album, “Heaven Upside Down,” will be released on Oct. 6.

Reps for Bieber and Manson did not reply to a request for comment.

In recent Manson news, the singer is currently streaming a new song called, We Know Where You F–king Live, which appears on his forthcoming album, Heaven Upside Down. The record will be released on October 6th.

    Funny, considering that Bieber was NEVER relevant… 😉

      Dana, you took the words right out of my mouth! I’m no fan of Manson, but the arrogance of that fake phony irrelevant piece of sh!t, Justin BEAVER, is even more sickening than Manson’s face! And his “music.”

    Bieber is such an ass! I’m no fan of Marilyn Manson, as I’ve said in previous posts. But Manson has more talent in his little finger than Bieber has in his whole body! Bieber was NEVER relevant except to teenage girls who think he’s cute and enjoy his teeny-bopper fake rap pop music. Outside of that market, everyone else thinks he’s a no talent brat!

    Anyone else notice the irony that a guy named Marilyn Manson has a woman’s first name, and a girl named Justin Bieber has a man’s first name?…

    Back on the Animalize tour, Paul Stanley burned a Michael Jackson doll.

    I’d say a Justin Beiber Voodoo Doll is long overdue, and I can’t think of a better guy than Manson to market it.

    this one has me at a loss .. not sure how I feel ..this could all be about manson getting publicity for his new release that no one will buy…. and dana is spot on about Bieber never being relevant to a metal audience- he has had plenty of relevance to tweens over the years though- in hip hop pop if your a good looking kid and you can dance they will auto tune you and write you into a superstar – I hate to say it but manson is really not that relevant anymore, I did not like his new song at all – does he command a lot of money to play? does anyone know how many people he draws at his shows?? I don’t follow him so I don’t know- I mean it could be possible Bieber wearing his shirt is not that bad for manson-

      While I am not a Manson fan (although I do like the song, I Don’t Like The Drugs, But The Drugs Like Me), regardless of his relevancy in the current music climate, his legacy, and influence, is far more reaching than Bieber, on his best day.

      Who will even remember this twerp in 20 years? I mean lyrics such as, “And I was like baby, baby, baby oh Like baby, baby, baby no Like baby, baby, baby oh,” are sure to influence many for decades to come-LOL!

      The sheer arrogance, and cojones, on Bieber, is just outrageous. This narcissist actually thinks he is in same league as the Beatles and the Stones…Wow!

      WOW, brilliant lyrics, just brilliant! Very thought provoking, right up there with Stairway To Heaven! This little Beaver will go down in history as one of the greatest songwriters ever! Is he in the rock n’ roll hall of fame yet? He should be, if not he will be! F–k off already! How many 6 year old girls are still listening to this little punk-ass? The only reason why talentless little punks like Beaver wear rock T-shirts is to get attention, because that’s the only way they can! And you know what I just realized? We fell for it, because here we are giving him (little Beaver) attention. Damn those think tanks!! I’m done, just wasted 3 minutes of my life on the little Beaver, never again!
