Marilyn Manson pranks Spring Breakers party

At 44, singer Marilyn Manson apparently has a preteen sense of humor, dropping a smoke bomb at a party that also featured James Franco and Ashley Benson holding hands, and Selena Gomez putting the kibosh on Justin Bieber songs.

Emergency responders rushed to the scene of a Los Angeles party for the premiere of Spring Breakers, Page Six reported today, after rocker Marilyn Manson dropped a smoke bomb as a prank.

A “spy” saw Manson, “in makeup and sunglasses,” lobbing the smoke bomb in the parking lot of the Emerson Theatre as he drove away in his car.

“Apparently it’s his signature move,” a Los Angeles scenester told Page Six. “He did the same thing recently at Greystone Manor,” (a Hollywood supper club).

Page Six also reports that as “smoke [b]illowed, firemen pulled up to inspect Manson’s ‘bomb’ and make sure it was innocuous.”

Yeah, ever since a whole bunch of innocent people were killed at a Dark Knight Rises screening, people’s sense of humor about bombs at the movies: probably not so keen.

Page Six also reports that James Franco and Ashley Benson, rumored to be dating, were seen holding hands. Yep, hand-holding in public, that’s the next stage in a relationship; now let’s wait and see if they hold hands while being photographed!

At that same gossip-worthy party, HollywoodLife reports, Selena Gomez’s people apparently banned the DJ from planning any songs from Gomez’s ex, Justin Bieber. HollywoodLife says a partygoer requested “Beauty & the Beat,” the DJ responded, “No, I’m sorry I can’t play it. I was told specifically from her people that any Justin Bieber songs were off-limits tonight.”

Spring Breakers is set to open in 1,000 theaters on March 22 after a limited run in Los Angeles and New York City, says the Hollywood Reporter.
