Preceded by a marching band playing " Hail to the Chief ", Manson entered the stage in a full-body black fur coat flanked by mock United States Secret Service agents,  and delivered a speech to the audience of Hollywood celebrities from a microphone-covered lectern emblazoned with the phrase 'Antichrist Superstar' in classical Latin script and the band's "Shock" logo fashioned to look like the Seal of the President of the United States :.
My fellow Americans, we will no longer be oppressed by the fascism of Christianity. And we will no longer be oppressed by the fascism of beauty. As I see you all sitting out there trying your hardest not to be ugly, trying your hardest not to fit in, trying your hardest to earn your way into Heaven, but let me ask you—do you want to be in a place that's filled with a bunch of assholes? After the speech the band launched into "The Beautiful People", with Manson striking rigid poses as he sang.
Manson removed his coat midway thru to reveal a second costume underneath that consisted of a leather corset and g-string which revealed his bare buttocksa pair of thigh-high fishnet hosiery attached to a leather garter belt and knee-high leather boots. The performance came to its climax as the band smashed their instruments at the end of the song. Get your asses into church, or you're going to hell!

This radio edit is the version used in the music video for "The Beautiful People". Three official remixes of "The III Grill Concert - Johannes Dimpflmeier - Untitled People" have been released.
Thirlwell 's "The Not-So-Beautiful People" is a straight industrial reworking of the track, with rhythmic vocal samples and churning, filtered synthesizers.

The clip, filmed in the then abandoned Gooderham and Worts distillery in Toronto, Canada,  depicts the band performing the song in a classroom-like area decorated with medical prostheses and laboratory equipment.
Intercut with these performance clips are scenes of lead singer Marilyn Manson in a long gown-like costume and aviator goggles, wearing stilts and prosthetic makeup which make him appear bald and grotesquely tall; after being placed in this costume by similarly attired attendants, he appears to a cheering crowd through a window in a scene reminiscent of a rally, and later stands in the center of a circle while people march around him pumping their fists into the air. Other fast cut scenes include extreme close-ups of crawling earthworms, mannequin heads and hands, and the boots of people marching; and shots of the individual band members bizarrely costumed, including Manson in back and neck braces, a leather aviator cap and an orthodontic cheek retractor, exposing metallic teeth.
It was an interesting thing. It was used for dental operations and things of that nature. It did leave some bad cuts in my mouth that will unfortunately, probably never heal.
But, you always have to suffer to make something great. The single was generally praised on its release. AllMusic's Stephen Thomas Erlewine highly praised the song, stating that "With its mock menace and pummeling metal triplets, it was the first Manson song with an oversized hook -- the kind of song that even the group's detractors couldn't get out of their heads".

Rock'n'rollsportspoliticsthey all carry an element of it. Totalitarianism fascinates me because I see it everywhere. You are told from birth to death that if you don't participate in various capitalist rituals, ie consumptiongood behaviour, religious worship, you won't be accepted, loved or beautiful.
That underlying suppression affects you and it's completely ignored Look, why do people want to be beautiful? To be loved, accepted, conquer their fear of exclusion. I finally realised after years of not being accepted—why not create your own standard and let other people be accepted or rejected by you?
We've reversed the whole idea of the fascism of beauty and replaced it with our own standard. We destroyed it to create a new way.
