In February, singer Lana Del Rey posted a cryptic tweet implying some type of witchcraft.
In an interview with British music publication NME, she finally admitted that the tweet tacitly asking her followers to gather ingredients was meant to cast a spell on Donald Trump to have him removed from office.
“Yeah, I did it,” Del Rey said. “Why not? Looking, I do a lot of sh*t.”
She went on to explain her belief in “spells” and how they could impact the President.
“I’m in line with Yoko and John 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 changes.”
Even though Del Rey concedes that, because Trump is still President, her hex wasn’t successful, his approval rating is sitting at a dismal 37 percent. While it would be nice to think that Del Rey’s meddling with the universe is having some effect, it’s more likely a different type of meddling altogether that put the President in the unfortunate position he’s in today.
