The world always finds a way to allege successful people of numerous lies and exaggerations as their actual reason behind impressive accomplishments. Among those ways, Satan worship (or Satanism to be precise) is the trendiest one in social media these days. From politicians to musicians, they are accused of selling their souls to the devil in exchange of uncanny talents and endless fame. Following are 15 celebrities accused of worshiping Satan:
15. Marilyn Manson
Starting with the most obvious one, Marilyn Manson is a pioneer of alternative metal and shock rock. Despite all the negativity and controversy surrounding the self-proclaimed antichrist superstar, the musician has tons of fans around the globe.
Visibly vocal when it comes to taunting Christ and glorifying the devil himself, Manson has been suspected of worshiping the devil since day one and the satanic iconography contained in his lyrics and image support the accusations.
14. Barack Obama
Due to his dedication and hard work, Barack Obama was able to slap on the face of every single racism stereotype by becoming the first ever African American President of the United States of America. At least that is what majority of the world believes.
Whereas conspiracy theorists argue that Obama is nothing more than a puppet who does everything what the devil tells him to. His frequent devil’s horns gesture has convinced many people that the President is a practitioner of freemasonry.
Speaking of breaking racism stereotypes, the white boy from Detroit faced immense bullying once he decided to launch his music career as a rapper. In couple of years, Eminem became the greatest rapper alive today.
So how did the white musician become a master of the genre dominated by black artists? By selling his soul to the devil! The rapper has frequently referenced Satan in his lyrics as hints and codes; raising the eyebrows of conspiracy theorists everywhere.
12. Robert Johnson
The habit of accusing talented musicians of selling their soul to the devil goes way back and Robert Johnson stands out as one of the earliest examples. Born in 1911, Johnson developed a taste for songwriting and guitaring and soon established himself as one of the greatest blues musicians of all time.
Due to his poorly documented life and dying young at the age of 27, rumors of Johnson selling his soul to the devil in exchange of exceptional music skills have spread like wildfire. Apparently, the possibility of Johnson working hard to achieve his skills is not likely enough.
11. Jay Z
Without a shadow of a doubt, rapper Jay Z is one of the most commercially successful and one of the best-selling musicians alive today. Furthermore, the rapper owns sports bars, sports agencies, clothing lines and a few recording studios.
Apart from making a name in the entertainment and business industry, Jay Z has also made quite a name for himself among the celebrities accused of worshiping the devil and the triangle symbol he makes with his hands during his concerts proves it.
The wife of Jay Z is not much far behind when it comes to the numerous celebrities who employ satanic symbology to make everyone believe that she worships the devil just like any other celebrity who have reached the top of their game.
The accusers have a hard time believing that her singing talent has anything to do with her being immensely rich, commercially successful, winning numerous awards and producing one hit song after another.
9. Ozzy Osbourne
If the devil appeared in human form, he would probably resemble Ozzy Osbourne. Known as the Godfather of Heavy Metal, the musician resembles the very embodiment of a devil worshiper. Then again, almost every heavy metal musician does!
Along with his band Black Sabbath, Osbourne has employed fire, skulls, dark messages and even satanic iconography in his lyrics and music videos to make everyone believe that he might be a free-mason.
Over the years, the accusations of being a devil worshipper have never left Rihanna in peace. Due the several one-eyed images, satanic gestures, demonic descriptions and even the allegations of backmasking in her music, it seems that Rihanna will forever be known for selling her soul to the devil.
During her interview with Hot 97, the Barbadian singer sarcastically admitted that she worships the devil but later clarified that she was joking. Nonetheless, conspiracy theorists consider it as her confession of the truth.
