'I sold my soul to the devil' or facsimiles thereof have been catch phrases of the Hollywood elite for many decades. Some have taken this to simply mean they sold out on their moral values in order to achieve success in an industry pretty much devoid of any such standards. Others however have taken it more literally, meaning they sold their souls to Satan to achieve stardom.
Conspiracy theories involving the 'illuminati', luciferians and assorted clandestine elitist religions have been incorporated into these rants and basically marginalized them to the point of being outside the scope of coherent discourse. The Following is a list of Entertainment Industry elite who are said to have literally 'Sold their souls to the devil'
Entertainment Icons and Lucifer
Most people today excluding serious music and particularly blues afficinados have no idea who Robert Johnson was. Robert Leroy Johnson was an African American blues musician, a singer songwriter who in his day was dubbed king of the Delta Blues.
In the late 1930s he produced and performed a number of marvelous blues songs that have influenced generations of musicians. He is ranked as one of the top 5 guitarists of all time. But his talent came to him very suddenly - too suddenly as per those who knew him.
Legends have it that he met the devil in the form of a huge black man at a crossroads. Johnson wasn't much of a player so the demon took his guitar, fine tuned it, and strummed out a few ditties before giving it back to Johnson. From that moment forward he exhibited a musical mastery that he had never displayed before. He was able to play incredible new songs instantaneously without taking the time to write any lyrics or compose any music. Legend is he made a pact with the Devil.
In voodoo or Hoo doo, 'a form of African American magical spirituality, in order to acquire facility at various manual and body skills, such as playing a musical instrument, throwing dice, or dancing, one may attend upon a crossroads a certain number of times, either at midnight or just before dawn, and one will meet a 'black man,' whom some call the Devil, who will bestow upon one the desired skills. In the Vodou tradition, Papa Legba is the lwa of crossroads.
Johnson died in 1938 at the age of 27. The King of the Delta Blues died on August 16, the same date as Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin. The King of Rock and Roll, Elvis Presley, The Sultan of Swat, Babe Ruth.. The circumstances of his death are suspicous and believed to have been violent, the exact whereabouts of his earthly remains are also in question.
Mick Jagger is rumored to have sold his soul to the devil back in the 1960s and penned a confessional top ten hit 'Sympathy for the Devil'.
Please allow me to introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
I've been around for a long, long year
Stole many a man's soul and faith ...
Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name, oh yeah
What's puzzling you is the nature of my game
It is one of the few songs Jagger wrote by himself without the help of Keith Richards and is said to be based on a novel The Master and Margarita in which Beelzebub shows up in 1930s Moscow fresh from the crucifixion of Christ. 'Sympathy for the Devil' later became the official anthem for the Church of Satan.
The Rolling Stones went on to taunt the Religous zealots with invocations of Satanism and saturated their music with Satanic and occult symbolism. Keith Richards and Mick Jagger later produced Dancin' With Mr. D [ as in 'Devil']
Jaggers partner Keith Richards once claimed that their songs came via a form of channelling or demonic communication as some believe. 'We receive our songs by inspiration, like at a seance' (Keith Richards of the ROLLING STONES, Rolling Stone, May 5, 1977, p. 55). Compare this quote to a statement by John Lennon of the Beatles ... When the real music comes to me ... I'm just a channel. It's given to me and I transcribe it like a channel.'
Richards also claims his song, 'Demon', is a quasi autobiography and that he is possessed by a number of demons.
I'm just letting you in
Maybe you know Let me tell you something
It's painful to say Which way to go
I don't know Demon in me Demon in me
I can't live without it
John Lennon When asked why The Beatles were so successful stated I sold my soul to the devil [ Lennon: Definitive Biography Pg. 348]. Lennon also once described Jesus as ' ... a garlic eating, stinking, little yellow, greasy, fascist bastard'. [A Spaniard in the Works - John Lenon]
The book The Lennon Prophecy: A New Examination of the Death Clues of The Beatles by Joseph Niezgoda argues that the Beatles became successful because John Lennon literally made a pact with Satan.
John Lennon famously quoted the Satanist Alastair Crowley, who also appeared on the Sargent Pepper album cover. He admitted that, "I've sold my soul to the Devil." Yoko Ono admits that right before John Lennon died, "It was finally time to consummate all of these spells by making a living sacrifice and signing a pact with the devil." (Albert Goldman, The Lives of John Lennon, pg. 586)
Paul McCartney in 2001 on Larry King Live commented on how he received his song 'Yesterday': 'The music to 'Yesterday' came in a dream. The tune just came complete. You have to believe in magic. I can't read or write music'
Derick Tater, the Beatles press officer stated, 'The Beatles completely shock me, they're completely anti-christ... so antichrist it shocks me.'
Jimmy Page, considered one of the greatest guitarists of all time was a fan of Aleister Crowley. He had Aleister Crowley's quote, 'Do what thou wilt,' inscribed into the grooves of the Led Zeppelin III album, and even went on to purchase Crowely's old house in Loch Ness, Scotland.
In a 1975 interview with Rolling Stone Magazine he stated "There were two or three owners before Crowley moved into it ... It was also a church that was burned to the ground with the congregation in it. Strange things have happened in that house that had nothing to do with Crowley. The bad vibes were already there. A man was beheaded there, and sometimes you can hear his head rolling down."
Page's obsession with Aleister Crowley fermented speculation that he and Lucifer were BFFs and he had sold his soul to the devil in exchange for fame and fortune.
Robert Plant, credited with writing 'Stairway to Heaven' may not have actually written it. Led Zepellin lore states he was visited by a mystical power when he created it." Plant stated 'My hand was writing out the words, 'There's a lady is sure [sic], all that glitters is gold, and she's buying a stairway to heaven'. I just sat there and looked at them and almost leapt out of my seat.' LED Zeppelin Gear by Jeff Strawman ...
The fact that mere mortal Robert Plant may not have actually written the lyrics might just explain why Satanic messages have been found when playing the album backwards. Such as, 'Oh, here's to my sweet Satan. The one whose little path made me sad, whose power is Satan. He'll give those with him 666. And all those fools who made us suffer, Sad Satan.'

Brad Pitt: 'I grew up in a very Christian environment, a healthy environment, a loving family. But there were just parameters and things I didn't understand. I always questioned it and it took me to my adult years or leaving home where I could really try on something different for myself. That was Satanism. It's working out really well. I made a pact. That's why the movie came out so well.'
In 2004 Bob Dylan did a 60 Minutes Interview. The host, Ed Bradley asked Dylan why he still felt the need to tour after all these years. Dylan's response was priceless ...
Ed Bradley: Why do you still do it? Why are you still out here?
Dylan: It goes back to that destiny thing. I made a bargain with it a long time ago, and I'm holding up my end.
Bradley: What was your bargain?
Dylan: To get where I am now.
Bradley: Should I ask whom you made the bargain with?
Dylan: With the chief commander.
Bradley: On this earth?
Dylan: On this earth and the world we can't see.
In 2012, Alicia Keys performed 'Send Me An Angel' at Whitney Houston's funeral. It was a delightful melody with beautiful lyrics, except towards the end when she bizarrely interjected, 'Thank you Lucifer. Thank you for guiding me.'
It is open to debate, as are claims of back masking against other artists see the - video yourself.
In 2014, Jim Carrey came on Jimmy Kimmel Live and immediately began flashing weird symbols, a triangle with his hands and his toungue hanging out, similar to Mick Jagger / Rolling Stones trademark. When Kimmel asked him what he was doing, Carrey replied that everybody in Hollywood knew what it was. Kimmel's reply was even more surprising, he went on to say he was 'sick and tired' of the secrets and lies. He continued the conversation relative to dark rituals and mass controll methods.
Jim Carrey referred to his toungue being stuck out in the triangle as the 'secret symbol of the illuminati, the all mocking tongue. Video: Jim Carrey's Secret Hand Signal. Now compare the 'all mocking tongue ' to the Rolling Stone Logo...
There is so much Fake News about this clown that it becomes quite difficult to sort the wheat from the chaff. She never said "Satan is a Nice Guy" as per some bogus internet blogs nor did she ever tell her young fans to 'worship Satan' if they want to become 'rich & famous'. But she does have many of the hallmarks of the Luciferian cult, whether real or just part of her 'schtick' is uncertain.
As a teeny bopper known as "Hanna Montana" still under her families tutalege Miley professed to be a Christian and promoted traditional values, with her show on Disney. However, as is the case with most childhood stars nurtured by Mickey the devil mouse, she was flipped and began promoting sexual immorality laced with Satanic inuendos.
Her career, no longer under the guidance of her father Billy Ray Cyrus was commandeered by music / hollywood elites - largely luciferian. They frolic in orgasmic merriment at the opportunity to ravage chastity and virtue. Miley is a tool of the luciferians as was Britney Spears and Bella Thorne before her, both graduates of Disneys Satanic Agenda.
During a 2009 performance in Atlanta, West opened the show with a improvised monologue about his passion for entertainment before abruptly transitioning into a freestyle confession. He rapped: 'I sold my soul to the devil. I know it was a crappy deal. At least it came with a few toys like a happy meal.'

A member of the murderous Manson gang or Manson 'family' was first associated with Anton LeVey founder of the Church of Satan. Atkins participated in a witch's sabbath performance and became a regular visitor at the Church of Satan before hooking up with Charles Manson and the rest is history.
