For anyone who's seen a show on Britney Spears' Circus tour this spring, you've noticed at one point during the show a video is shown in which Britney writhes around to [url id="http://www.mtv.com/music/artist/marilyn_manson/artist.jhtml"]Marilyn Manson[/url]'s cover of the Eurythmics' classic [url id="http://www.mtv.com/videos/marilyn-manson/78341/sweet-dreams-are-made-of-this.jhtml"]"Sweet Dreams."[/url]
And although fans may find the pairing of Spears and Manson odd, Manson's on-again lady love, [url id="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/201379/personmain.jhtml"]Evan Rachel Wood[/url], likes the idea. So much so, in fact, that she encourages the collaboration. "I want him to sing with her," she told MTV News. "I think that'd be great. I totally want to see Marilyn Manson and Britney Spears. Who doesn't want to see Marilyn Manson and Britney Spears sing onstage together?"
She added that the somewhat-unusual pairing would be akin to hers and Larry David's in the new Woody Allen flick, "Whatever Works": "That's like me marrying Larry David. It's awesome."
She said that when she suggested the idea to Manson, he was amused by it because "we have the same sense of humor." So what tune would the duo sing — a Britney or Manson hit? "Maybe they can do a mash-up or something," she said. "I think somebody's gotta get on that."
Wood also talked a bit about what it's like to date the eccentric rocker. And she swears that, despite their age difference, no one in her family was surprised that the two fell in love. "They would be more shocked about Larry David," she joked. "Nobody asked me why — they asked me how."
