Spotted: David Lynch And Marilyn Manson Bond Over Darkness In Los Angeles

Every day a multitude of stars wander through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with our intrepid correspondents. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that's why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.

The best thing about celebrity parties in Los Angeles is that it creates incredible photo opportunities for people who wouldn't normally hang around each other. For example, the after party at the Mayan in L.A. for the "Duran Duran Unstaged" event (hosted by American Express) featured a guest list that included the members of Duran Duran, Moby and Kelis. But by far the highlight came when filmmaker David Lynch (he of "Blue Velvet" and "Mulholland Drive" fame) spent some quality time with shock rocker Marilyn Manson. It wasn't the first time the two have been in the same room together, as Manson was actually in a brief scene in Lynch's underrated 1997 feature "Lost Highway" (Manson's mentor Trent Reznor also provided some music for that project). Manson was trying hard to get his "Alice in Wonderland" film made, but he appears to be headed back to the music world, as his band is at work on their eighth album (and their first since 2009's The High End of Low).

They weren't the only stars out and about, as Katy Perry hung out at her hotel in Manchester, England and Vanessa Hudgens hit the red carpet for the premiere of "Sucker Punch." Click here for these photos as well as the entire "Spotted" archive, which features over 500 candid shots of stars like Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Eminem, Rihanna, Jay-Z, Madonna, Mariah Carey, the Jonas Brothers and Kanye West!
