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.
