In what probably won’t surprise many people, Marilyn Manson has admitted that he isn’t a huge fan of Lady Gaga’s music. In fact, the shock rocker says he prefers Justin Timberlake’s songs over the pop diva’s.

NME reports that Manson was talking to Digital Spy when he was asked what he thought about Lady Gaga. While he’s glad someone like her is redefining what a pop star should be like, don’t expect to hear “Poker Face” blasting throughout his home.

“I like the general idea of what she’s about. I have a hard time liking her music,” says Manson. “It’s not my style of music that I like, and I like a lot of music that is in that vein. I like Kylie Minogue sometimes – I like a lot of unusual stuff, I like Justin Timberlake over Lady GaGa, just musically.”

It’s interesting to hear Manson say that since he collaborated with Lady Gaga on a remix of her 2009 single, “LoveGame”. The “Beautiful People” singer also commented that Gaga may have went a little overboard with her constant style changes.

“I get the whole idea of what she’s doing and I appreciate that,” Manson states. “I don’t think it’s a bad thing, I think it’s a good thing. At the same time, I don’t try to have a different look every single moment because I think it’s more ephemeral, it becomes less permanent.”

He continues: “People like to identify with one single thing. I’m not one to knock her, she’s obviously succeeded in what she’s doing. It’s not exactly the type of thing that I find myself listening to, but that doesn’t mean I don’t like her.”

In related news, Marilyn Manson is teaming up with Rob Zombie in a tour made in Hell. The trek kicks off this fall and will stop by the DTE Energy Music Theatre on October 12.
