Whether true or not, a lot of things have been said about Marilyn Manson: He was responsible for the Columbine School Shootings, he had one of his ribs removed for...well you know the story, etc. Perhaps the weirdest thing being said about Manson now is that Shia LaBeouf is directing a documentary about him.

During a recent appearance on 'Live with Regis and Kelly' to promote his current film 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon', Shia LaBeouf mentioned that he had spent some time at Marilyn Manson's West Hollywood home. He went on to say he had long been a fan of Manson's and described the experience to the hosts:

"There are no lights in the room...and there are these big metal doors and he opens the door and he's in a kimono, a big pink kimono. It's sort of like a lair. No lights, so you have to use your cell phone to guide you around."

LaBeouf also revealed that he is directing a documentary about Manson's life and career and had been given the shock-rockers blessing. No other details have been revealed about the project, but let's hope it goes better than Shia's involvement with other previously successful names like Indiana Jones and Gordon Gecko.

Marilyn Manson's still untitled eighth studio album is expected later this year.
