The Beautiful People

This painting was influenced from a song by Marilyn Manson "The Beautiful People". It was released as the lead single from the band's second studio album, Antichrist Superstar, in September 1996. The title of the song comes from Marylin Bender's 1967 book The Beautiful People, which exposed the world of scandal within the "jet-set" lifestyle of the 1960s, and the culture of beauty as it pertained to fashion and politics. In the context of the album's concept, the song refers to the privileged class of elites whom the titular character, a populist demagogue called Antichrist Superstar, fulminate against. Lyrically, it discusses what Manson refers to as "the culture of beauty".
