Over the years, the popularity of Wicca and witchcraft has reached the level of stars. Important people in movies, music, sports, and TV have in one way or another aroused curiosity about their witchy status. According to various media reports, here are some VIPs who may or may not be witches.
Stevie Nicks is no stranger to rumors about her involvement in witchcraft. As if her hit songs "Rhiannon," "Crystal," and "Sorcerer" weren't enough evidence as to her being a witch, the singer also starred as herself in American Horror Story: Apocalypse and American Horror Story: Coven.
However, throughout her career, Nicks has denied the claims. Responding to one statement saying she was a "witch and a Satan worshipper," she said: "I can’t believe people are still telling me I’m a witch because I wear black."
Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen has not officially announced her practice of witchcraft, and we only have her husband NFL quarterback Tom Brady's interviews as basis. However, it sure does seem that she is onto something witchy!
According to Brady, Bundchen keeps an altar for him before his games, gives him healing and protection stones, and makes him recite mantras. He also said that for the past few years, Bundchen has predicted whether or not his team would win the championship. In the same interview, Brady quoted Bundchen as saying “You’re lucky you married a witch, I’m just a good witch.”
Princess Nokia is a rapper who uses her music to voice her stand on various issues, as well as introduce people to her spiritual side. She practices Santería and says that her spiritual beliefs are her birthright. She sees abilities related to witchcraft as "gifts," like mediumship, clairvoyance, and healing abilities.
A witch on-cam, and also off-cam? Rachel True of The Craft fame was a professional tarot card reader in Echo Park in Los Angeles. She claimed in an interview that she doesn't consider herself a witch, but has said that her esoteric studies have helped her get the role of Rochelle in The Craft (1996).
In that interview, True said: "The year before I read for The Craft had been slow, so I really delved deep into esoteric studies and learning tarot. When the script came up, I definitely put a lot of mental energy into it, trying to manifest that part for myself... I'd never done a screen test before, so I was incredibly nervous. I think I had a few crystals in my pocket."
Godsmack vocalist and rhythm guitarist Sully Erna identifies as Wiccan and even wears a pentacle while performing onstage. According to The Talko, Erna is initiated into the Cabot tradition by founder and high priestess Laurie Cabot.
Despite critics saying he is a devil worshipper, which has led to some show organizers preventing Godsmack from performing, he says:
"The prejudices are hard to fight. It’s pretty sad. I’m not trying to convert them [people]; I just want them to understand that Wicca has nothing to do with black magic. It’s not about turning people into frogs or practicing black magic."
Actress, director, and writer Heather Graham is famous for her roles in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me (1999) and Bowfinger (1999). But not a lot of people know that she is a believer of witchcraft. As a matter of fact, she and her friends look like they're practicing witches!
In an interview with Elle Magazine, Graham said that she has a group of friends and they call each other "The Goddesses." They get together, do spells, honor the elements, and use the power of intention to manifest things. If this isn't a coven, then I don't know what is!
