I am impressed by the prose of the section describing the song which is quite innovative in such articles and quite riveting at its attempt to bring such information to the reader. Lincher 20:11, 15 October 2006 (UTC)

That's great news, and while I'm quite proud of the article as it is, it's still a work in progress. I'm really hoping to (rather sooner than later) get it up to WP:FA quality; any feedback from anyone who may have reviewed it during the WP:GA process would be appreciated. --keepsleeping slack off! 21:03, 15 October 2006 (UTC)


The following is what one editor's assessment of the article is (which'll aid people in this article gaining FA status;

The Beautiful People is a nice article. I'd stub out or remove as many of the redlinks as possible; try to find more reviews (only 2?!); get a source for the discography info. Also there's info which is in the lead but not in the body. --kingboyk 11:45, 17 October 2006

I feel addressing these concerns would vastly improve its chances of FA. Also, the charting information (gaining number 26) should be covered under "Critical response" as well as in the lead. LuciferMorgan 17:26, 18 October 2006 (UTC)


Well i'm not necessarily a fan of Manson much anymore, but have stumbled upon this page, and must say this is the way a page should look like. good job with this page.

Apathy Song[edit]

Christina Aguilera is releasing a song of the same name which also samples 'The Beautiful People'

Article delisted from GA category[edit]

This article has just has its GA status reassessed as part of the WP:SWEEPS; the article was found to have substantial problems, especially in the matter of referencing and Lead layout. Given the substantial nature of these deficiencies, the article has been failed immediately as it is felt that the necessary improvements required to meet the GA criteria will not be made within a 7-day grace period. However, as there has been some (minor) activity on this article recently, and because it is listed under 3 WikiProjects, if the issues outlined in the reassessment are addressed and resolved within 7 days, I will undertake an immediate GA review to re-list the article. The reassessment review can be found here. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any queries regarding this matter. ✽ Juniper§ Liege (TALK) 22:45, 18 February 2010 (UTC)
