Shock rocker Marilyn Manson has pinpointed the reason behind his happy romance with fetish model DITA VON TEESE - they have a fixation with the 1930s.
He says, "My girlfriend has always been someone who looks like she stepped out of a pin-up from the 1930s. So, being around her is a certain influence.
"We found things in common that we liked in that era because people had a different attitude about entertainment and art.
"People wanted to walk around and live like they were in a movie. And now, because reality is what people watch on TV with reality shows, it's doing the reverse, and it's just not exciting to me. I prefer to live to live in a fantasy world."04/07/2003 02:28
