She made it pretty apparent that she subscribes to some variant of modern paganism. Perhaps she wasn't quite ready to announce her beliefs in that interview but it turns out paganism could be more common than it was thought to be.
Entertainer Sammy Davis Jr.
Turns out he also had eyes for Satan. Davis started his journey into the occult in after attending a party that turned out to be a satanic one. Davis continued attending these parties and eventually joined the Church of Satan. A few years later Davis would star in the first satanic sitcom, Poor Devil. The show starred Davis as a demon who would move up within the ranks of hell if he could acquire the soul of an accountant. In spite of the show's lack of success, Davis was promoted within the Church of Satan and given the title of Warlock.
However, in the mid 's Davis' interest in the occult would fade. British singer Kate Bush has been subtly referencing her interest in the occult in her music since the start of her career. One song from the album featured lyrics taken from the Lesser Banning Ritual of the Pentagram, a ceremonial ritual used in modern occultism.
She also has a song titled "Waking the Witch" perhaps a reference to her own growing interest in the occult. She has stated about the song, "What fascinated me in doing that song was the idea of a witch-hunter hiding behind the priesthood, as a guise, and coming to get this woman who is not a witch, but he wants to make her so. Founder of the band Led Zeppelin, Page is widely considered to be one of the most influential guitar players of all time.
Before he plunged into being a rockstar, he owned an occult bookshop and publishing house called The Equinox Booksellers and Publishers. Page had a strong interest in the works of Aleister Crowley and followed them closely. Crowley, a popular occult figure, was often spoken of by Page.
He allegedly said, "Magic is very important if people can go through it I think Aleister Crowley's completely relevant today. We are still seeking for truth - the search goes on. Led Zeppelin's classic hit "Stairway to Heaven" has been rumored to have a satanic meaning that can only be heard if the song is played backward. Perhaps the song itself is a spell of some kind. Most people can agree it has been played to death, but still, it remains incredibly popular. Would it be so surprising for there to be some occult magic at work?
Nicks is definitely the Queen of Rock n' Roll, but is she perhaps a queen of witchcraft as well? The Fleetwood Mac singer has denied being a witch time and time again, but the denial itself is cause for speculation. Her song "Rhiannon" tells the story of a Welsh witch. The show American Horror Story: Coven asserts that Nicks is indeed a white witch while discussing the song.
Nicks even appeared on the show herself as a white witch, further cementing her witchcraft status. She has been seen wearing pagan inspired jewelry while performing and has also been quoted as saying, "I totally believe in magic. Because my life, I think, has been very magic, and magical things have come true for me time after time after time. Perhaps it's Nicks' way of coming out of the broom closet. The award winning actress is said to describe herself as "a Christian Pagan Buddhist Goddess worshiper" and also a feminist.
She famously made her pagan beliefs public while accepting her award for Best Actress in a Television Series at the Golden Globes. She has also expressed her opinion that calling God a man, in turn, makes man a god, which may be why she praises her thanks to a "Goddess" instead.
Shepherd's beliefs may still be in flux somewhere between pagan and Christian, as there is much to explore in both religions. Grimes, aka Claire Boucher, is an electropop singer known for her heavy beats, angst filled lyrics, and siren-like voice.
Her music is feminist, wild, and apparently fueled by witchcraft. Grimes has been associated with Witch House, a subgenre of electronic music that uses occult and dark themes. The Witch House visual aesthetic can also be seen in her music videos. In her video for her song "Kill V. Maim", Grimes throws a party where everyone dances in blood.
Shortly after the rumors spread in , Nurmi crashed a Halloween party full of Hollywood heavyweights dressed as a witch and with a man. The people who run Hollywood are active practitioners of witchcraft. Their 'god' is the Horned One. This paper gives disturbing evidence of the extent to which.
Seriously, there's blood everywhere. Grimes has also used starvation and sleep deprivation to create her music. To make her third album titled "Visions", Boucher locked herself away without company, food or sleep for nine days. Sleep deprivation was commonly used as a method of torture on people accused of being witches.
Perhaps Grimes was trying to tap into a higher mindset within her own witchy self. The fleeting and layered melodies in "Visions" definitely sound like they can be attributed to a witch seeing things due to lack of sleep. The King of Rock n' Roll may have been a warlock of the occult. In her memoir, Elvis' wife Priscilla Presley writes about her husband's interest in occult books.
At one time he was seeking a "higher level of consciousness.
During this time Presley also became celibate and heavily used sedatives. Apparently, his interest did not last long and he had Priscilla burn the books when he was done with them. Like many who experiment with witchcraft, The King would eventually return to Christianity in the later years of his life.
Perhaps his cover of the song "Witchcraft" was an earlier indicator of what would become a full-blown journey into the occult. It's hard to say if witchcraft can bring back a swing in the pelvis but Elvis gave it a shot. Australian singer Fiona Horne is known for being part of the 90's band Def FX and for her knowledge of witchcraft.
She was inspired by the subject in her twenties after reading The Way of the Goddess. According to her website, fans can pay to have Horne do a tarot reading for them over a live Skype session. While her views on Wicca have been criticized as not thorough or well thought out, her passion for the subject is apparent in her many publications. Virgo is the sign of the nurse, so this means I was born to nurse my generation. I have to re-create the universe every morning when I wake up.
And kill it in the evening, which is a bit outrageous, but there you go…". The original star boy graced the hearts of millions with his music and androgyny. While he may not have practiced witchcraft himself, he was definitely aware of and afraid of its power. The singer had been rumored to fear that witches were trying to abduct him and steal his swimmers. Bowie was so afraid of witches and being cursed that he hired a white witch to exorcise him. Bowie's wife at the time Angie Bowie wrote about the experience in her memoir.
At the peak of the episode, he was said to draw protective pentagrams on most surfaces. Too much drug use is more than enough to make a person fear witches are after them, or more specifically, their swimmers. Luckily, the legendary rocker seemed to successfully rid himself of his witchy demons.
Even a pop princess can find time for witchcraft. In a interview with Complex, the singer recounted her experiences with demons when visiting a cemetery. She also claims to have taken a picture that captured the faces of three demons. Apparently, the file could not be sent from Grande's phone because it was MB, which is oddly and satanically convenient.
