Ongoing History Daily: Shirley Manson literally gives a crap (or leaves one, actually)

If there’s one person you do not want to mess with is Garbage frontperson Shirley Manson. She has never taken fools lightly and isn’t beyond taking revenge in situations where she feels it’s warranted.

When she was 18, she found out that her boyfriend was cheating on her. Taking a cue from a friend who went through the same thing, Shirley left a Number Two on that boyfriend’s breakfast cereal. When asked about this, Shirley said “I recommend it as an act of revenge. It’s very empowering.”

Hot steaming tip: If you’ve been in an argument with her and you’re sitting down to eat, check your plate first. I wonder if Amber Heard is a fan?
