Convicted murderer Charles Manson has written Marilyn Manson a strange letter from his prison cell.

Manson, whom the 'Beautiful People' musician took his stage surname from, is locked up inside a Californian prison following a spate of murders in 1969.

He recently wrote to his musical namesake on a postcard, which has been leaked online by Loudwire. The message is strange and hard to understand at times, with Charles writing about a non-profit organisation he has established as well as dump trucks, ghost dancers and graves.

An extract from the letter reads:

"To Marilyn Manson, It’s taken me a long time to get there from where I could touch M. Manson. Now I got a card to play – you may look into my non-profit, ATWA, and give Manson what you think he’s got coming for Air, Trees, Water, and you. Or I will pay Manson what you think Manson got coming – the music has make Manson into Abraxas Devil, and I’m SURE you would want some of what I got from what I got. It’s a far out balance."
He continued: "Beyond good and bad, right, wrong. What you don’t do is what I will do – what you did a sing-along, and let it roll and said how you saved me a lot of steps – I don’t need, it’s not a need or a want. Couped – coup. Ghost dancers slay together and you’re just in my grave Sunstroker Corona-coronas-coronae – you seen me from under with it all standing on me. That’s 2 dump trucks – doing the same as CMF 000007. Charles Manson."

Marilyn Manson took half of his stage name from Charles Manson, looking to Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe for his first name. The 'Tainted Love' star was born Brian Warner.
