Lana Del Rey is lending her magic to that anti-Trump spell

The political world has gotten very Harry Potter in the last 24 hours; yesterday, we reported that a number of witches and magical practitioners worldwide are planning to cast a “binding spell” tonight on President Donald Trump, in the hopes “That he may do no harm / To any human soul / Nor any tree / Animal / Rock / Stream / or Sea.” Meanwhile, the mystically minded Christians of America are attempting to erect a prayer shield of their own around the president, to ward off hostile magics being cast on tonight’s waning crescent ritual day. But these Onward Christian Warriors won’t just have to contend with a population of pissed-off Wiccans tonight; they’ll also have to deal with the magical energies of Grammy-nominated chanteuse Lana Del Rey.

Pitchfork confirms that Del Rey—who just released a new single, in news that’s largely incidental to her new role as an occult lobbyist—is intending to join in the widespread ritual. The “Summertime Sadness” singer hinted as much yesterday, when she posted the following tweet:


Admittedly, between the talk of ingredients and the cake emoji, it’s always possible that Del Rey is just looking to do some late-night occult baking. (Waning crescent rolls, perhaps?) Still, Trump and his Sorcerous Service should probably be wary; it’s not every day they have to match magics with someone with a Billboard Music Award.
