Celebs Who Are Low-Key Rumoured to Be Involved in the Occult

By Mary Grace Garis

It make sense that Hollywood would be an unholy haven for members of the occult. You'd have to be involved in the Black Arts to get that star on the Walk of Fame, amirite? But while fame definitely has a dark side, some evil little tidbits seem highly exaggerated. Stevie Nicks plays a witch on American Horror Story, but has shrugged off those rumors like a gold shawl. Marilyn Manson, the Antichrist Superstar himself, is a card-carrying member of the Church of Satan...which doesn't hold much weight in the actual Church of Satan. Then again, some stars like Azealia Banks are not fronting when it comes to witchcraft. And as for those tales of the Illuminati...I'm 110 percent not getting into it today, so go hunting elsewhere.

However, I did page through the World Wide Web's Dark Library (Google) to judge whether someone was a good witch, a bad witch, not a witch at all, or literally just into crystals right now. And do keep in mind that I’m not an expert, I’m just another chick who wears a lot of black and has a Tarot Card print phone case. 

Lana Del Rey

You were plausibly in-the-know about this one before even clicking but to recap, in 2017 Lana Del Rey posted some ominous instructions for her Twitter followers. "At the stroke of midnight… Feb 24, March 26, April 24, May 23… Ingredients can b found online," she wrote, referring to a global hex meant to bind the president.

When asked about it later, Del Rey had a perfect IDGAF react. “Yeah, I did it. Why not? Look, I do a lot of *$&#”, Del Rey shared with NME. “I'm in line with Yoko [Ono] and John [Lennon] and the belief that there's a power to the vibration of a thought. Your thoughts are very powerful things and they become words, and words become actions, and actions lead to physical charges.”

Verdict: More of a casual Tumblr-era spellcaster, if anything.
