Lana Del Rey confirms in a new interview that she instructed her fans to join a mass occult ritual against President Donald Trump.
“Yeah, I did it. Why not? Look, I do a lot of shit,” Del Rey tells NME.
In February, the singer tweeted: “At the stroke of midnight… Feb 24, March 26, April 24, May 23… Ingredients can b found online.”
The dates refer to the timing of the waning crescent moon, which occult followers believe is a time to get rid of stress and negative energy.
Asked about her love of the occult, Del Rey said: “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.
“I really do believe that words are one of the last forms of magic and I’m a bit of a mystic at heart.”
Lana Del Rey released her fourth album, Lust For Life, on Friday (July 21).
