It's no secret that Lil Uzi Vert sees Marilyn Manson as something of a hero. In an interview with Zane Lowe last month, Uzi called the rock idol's music "beautiful" but complained that Mason — a new friend — would never answer his FaceTime calls.

Now, we've got Manson's side of the story: he's enjoying their blossoming friendship too, he just doesn't like to talk on FaceTime. In a new interview with Zane Lowe, the artist also talked about Uzi's music explaining why he prefers Luv Is Rage 2 to Luv Is Rage."The first [album], I saw the potential in him because he had this attitude that reminded me of me when I was his age."

"I don't want to sound aged by saying that," Manson continued, "it just sounded like what needed to happen. But it wasn't fully formed."

Manson also went on to deal their first meeting, telling Lowe, "I'm at this hotel and I'm having dinner with Rick Ross, who said his dream is to work with me. He ghosted me a bit. But the same night, I hung out with Lil Uzi after we had talked. And we talked a lot. He ghosted me also. I don't know if by the time this airs, he will have still ghosted me." Man, it seems like these guys really can't manage to catch each other on the phone. You can listen to the full interview below.
