Lana Del Rey hits back at Christian influencer who accused singer of 'witchcraft' – The Mirror


Footage from Lana Del Rey’s concert in Mexico back in August sparked concern when members of the packed crowd began falling down, leading Christian influencer Traci Costan to blame ‘demonic energy’
Lana Del Rey has hit back at a Christian influencer who accused the singer of “witchcraft”.
Footage from the 38-year-old singer’s concert back in August sparked concern, as it showed members of the packed crowd in Mexico seemingly falling to the floor like dominos. At the time, the incident was blamed on “progressive crowd collapse” by a science expert, but one popular Christian social media star – Traci Costan – blamed “demonic energy” for the phenomenon, despite no injuries being reported.
Reacting to the footage, Traci accused the Summertime Sadness hitmaker of “practising witchcraft”, and refused to believe the crowd was knocked over due to a moshpit gone wrong. “Lana Del Rey has been open about practising witchcraft, and y’all look at what happened at one of her concerts. This stuff is so real,” she stated in a video on Instagram.

“This is not normal, okay, that’s not a moshpit. Whatever witchcraft Lana Del Rey is doing – the spells she’s putting on her music to make it attractive – those demons are being invited into the crowd and into you when you attend,” Traci fumed. “These demons will destroy your life. How do I know? Because people come to me for deliverance to get rid of the demons that they get through stuff like this.”
The influencer later turned off the comments on the post, which was uploaded in September, but not before eagle-eyed fans spotted Lana had commented on Traci’s video. “B***h I know the Bible verse for verse better than you do. PS you’re giving off super gremlin energy. Not in a good way,” the Video Games hitmaker fired.
Lana has previously spoken about her religious beliefs, and in a 2011 interview, she said she relied on God when experiencing bad times in her life. “My understanding of God has come from my own personal experiences… because I was in trouble so many times in New York that if you were me, you would believe in God too,” she told The Quietus.
“When things get bad enough, your only resort is to lie in bed and start praying. I dunno about congregating once a week in a church and all that, but when I heard there is a divine power you can call on, I did. I suppose my approach to religion is like my approach to music – I take what I want and leave the rest,” Lana explained.
The Grammy-winning singer also recently revealed she had donated all the proceeds from her ticket sales during her small 10-date tour back to each city she performed in. “I just wanted to say thank you to you and just every city I’ve gone to before this. I also wanted to let you know, for what it’s worth, every ticket, every dollar, it is poured right back into the city,” she said during her performance in Charleston, West Virginia.
