That was fast and, evidently, carefully orchestrated. Friday, February 25th was LA Weekly web editor Erin Broadley‘s last day at the alternative weekly’s Culver City offices. In her resignation email previously reported by FishbowlLA, Broadley promised to let readers know where she landed.
“I asked Erin to write an objective account of my life because I have great respect for her,” said Manson. “I think she has the balls to be the next Lee Miller.” (Miller, the press release explains, “was a Surrealist-era journalist, famous for her work with Man Ray and breaking into Hitler’s apartment while working for Vogue during WWII”).
Balls? A Hitler reference? This ain’t no Justin Bieber press release. The partnership is all the more notable because Broadley and Manson were once cast – accurately or not – as mortal enemies, after the journalist wrote a July 2009 cover story that touched on some Manson debauchery.
