It wasn’t until recently that I had even heard of Beyonce. I’m just not interested in godless
soft porn stars that we have today but something did catch my interest. Upon researching a certain topic that I’ll be covering later on my blog, I uncovered the claim that Beyonce is demon possessed. You’re probably thinking “Oh brother, are they going to say she’s an alien next?” or maybe I’m the only one who thought that at first but it caught my attention because Beyonce herself claims to be possessed by something:
“When I see video of myself on stage or TV I’m like, ‘Who is that girl?’. That’s not me, I wouldn’t dare do that..” (Beyonce, September 2003).
“I have someone else that takes over when it’s time for me to work and when I’m on stage, this alter ego that I’ve created that kind of protects me and who I really am. Sasha Fierce is the fun, more sensual, more aggressive, more outspoken side and more glamorous side that comes out when I’m working and when I’m on the stage.” (Beyonce Press Statement, October 2008).
I/ve created an alter ego: things I do when performing I would never do normally. I reveal things about myself that I wouldn’t do in an interview. I have out-of-body experiences [on stage]. If I cut my leg, if I fall, I don’t even feel it. I’m so fearless, I’m not aware of my face or my body.” (Marie Claire interview, October 2008).
Does this sound anywhere near normal to you? It sure seemed crazy to me, so I began to take this claim more seriously. Christians shouldn’t be all that skeptical because it’s not surprising that some people use demons to bring about their success and subsequently are possessed by them. Apparently this transformation from Beyonce to Sasha Fierce can be seen in the recent Super Bowl performance that she had this year:
That’s some freaky stuff right there. At the same time, it feels like something you’d only see in a movie but given her own claims and these images, it seems like it all fits. There’s a youtube video that breaks this process down in more detail. According to some, there’s all sorts of demonic symbolism to be found in her work as well. Beyonce is not the only one who claims to have these experiences, there are other stars that have similar experiences. Coincidence? You can be the judge of that, but it doesn’t seem like one to me. There’s something sinister at work here and as christians we should confront sin but we should also pray that God frees them from this self destructive lifestyle.
Disclaimer: None of this is meant to be conclusive proof that she is demon possessed, it’s mainly presented for the sake of interest and discussion. Feel free to make your own conclusions.
