Lady Gaga and Marilyn Manson Team Up For "LoveGame" Remix

June 11, 2009 1:01 PM ET

In one of the strangest collaborations you'll hear this year, Lady Gaga has recruited Marilyn Manson to contribute vocals to the remix of her dance-floor anthem "LoveGame." Perez Hilton is streaming the hyperactive remix now, and posted some photos of the pair in the studio.

Rolling Stone first caught wind of the remix during our Hot Issue photo shoot when Manson showed up, absinthe in hand, to throw morbid pickup lines at Gaga and to proclaim his love of our Hot Diva. "I was most impressed by her paparazzi shots. I thought that it looked the way that rock stars should look, as exciting as something that Warhol or Dali would do," Manson told RS.

Given the direction of Manson's The High End of Low, especially the LCD Soundsystem-esque "We're From America," a collaboration between the two creatively appareled musicians, even though they occupy two completely different genres, is fitting. As Manson said to RS, "She's very smart, she's not selling out, she's a great musician, she's a great singer, and she's laughing when she's doing it, the same way that I am." The "LoveGame" remix isn't the only thing you'll hear out of the pair this year: RS reports that Gaga has also lent her vocals to an upcoming remix for a song off of The High End of Low.

Gaga isn't finished collaborating, however: As Rock Daily reported yesterday, Kanye West revealed he'll be taking The Fame singer out on tour with him later this year, and that Gaga wouldn't be serving as his opening act. Current rumors have the pair working together for the entire show, but those have not been confirmed. For much more on Gaga, check out our Hot Issue hub.

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
