Marilyn Manson and Lily. February 2011.

Lily White was a cat owned by Marilyn Manson. During their divorce, Manson and Dita Von Teese fought over custody of Lily and their other cat, Aliester, as well as two dachshunds named Eva and Greta. Lily was the only one of these pets to be returned to Manson.

Lily, a Devon Rex breed, can be seen in the painting Lily White, and also appears in two short movie clips. The first is entitled "I Love You With All of My Heart", in which Lily is seen licking a plate of milk with a heart on it, and the other is "I Will Love You Until I Die", where Lily sits on the pelvis of a skeleton. Manson also mentions the cat in his film Doppelherz, which was included as a bonus DVD with some versions of the album The Golden Age of Grotesque.

The phrase "lily white" typically connotates purity, cleanliness and blamelessness. Perhaps some of Manson's sorrow over lost innocence emerged in the choice of name. Manson currently owns one other cat, named Charlie. More information about his former pets can be found here.

Lily White passed away August 5, 2016. Manson has dedicated a tattoo to Lily White.
