Jonathon Davis

His nickname is HIV, as a sort of agreement with the "faget" term he was dubbed in high school. He does not, in fact, have AIDS or the HIV virus. Jonathan was expecting (astrologically) a baby girl, but at delivery Jonathan was only slightly surprised to see, as he put it, "pink balls," and he had come away from the girls name Salaam Dementia and named him Nathan Housemen Davis (Housemen being Jonathan's middle name, as well). He and his son live in Huntington Beach California, in what he calls a relatively gay community, "where instead of people acting cool and carrying guns, they come up to you and say hi." Jonathan was born January 18th, 1971. His ex-girlfriend is a very attractive woman, but is perceived as seeing herself as gods gift to the world. He did the album in his fathers studio as he says, under his breath, "as a sort of revenge."
We asked Jonathan a few questions on Marilyn Manson and he said, "He and I are like best friends. I've been to his house a couple of times. We hit it off right away when I met him the first time. In fact, I think we're going to do a side project. Yeah, we're going to call ourselves 'fags' and write songs about how much we like big dick." Well, the latest news on "Fags" doesn't seem too promising. Jon said, "He and I are really busy and haven't had the time to get together. Maybe after our tours are done."
Then, I asked him about his tattoo. He thought I meant HIV, and said, "It's just a nickname." I then asked him about the crazed bishop and he said, "The bishop is a symbol of the atrocities that religion is making. He's ripping up my skin to reveal Christ. It's more of a symbol of how corrupt religion is. I don't believe in any of it because of shit like televangilism. Do you really think that all that money really goes to charity?"
Jonathan is into Duran Duran, claiming them to be glam, but they don't sell out, but on the tour bus the band is known to listen to LL Cool J and Black Sheep. In fact, in concert, during a version of Predictable, called 'Predick,' they do a part of a Black Sheep song called, "You Mean I'm Not." They also do a version of Balltongue with a rap in it by another rap group.
