Miley Cyrus Telling Fans to ‘Worship Satan’ If They Want to Be Successful In the Music Industry Is Fake News
By Erica Abbott
Reports that Miley Cyrus told her fans to “worship Satan” if they want to be successful in the music industry are false. “The Voice” coach never made any comments related to Satanic worship—rumors that the singer said that “Satan is our Lord” stememd from a disreputable news website.
According to a Gossip Cop report, the fake claim originated on Neon Nettle, a disreputable website that publishes misinformation and fabricated quotes. The article claimed that Cyrus revealed her Satanic beliefs to a group of young fans, who wanted to know how to “become a star.” It purported:
Pop star Miley Cyrus left her followers shocked and confused after advising her young fans to “worship Satan” if they want to become “rich & famous” like their heroes.
Following filming the NBC TV talent show, The Voice, on which Cyrus is one of the judges, a flock of young admirers had gathered outside the backstage exit, hoping to catch a glimpse of their idol.
As the Wrecking Ball singer made her way out of the exit with her security team, one of her star-struck fans asked her: “Hey Miley, do you have any advice for any of your fans that might want to follow in your footsteps and become a star?”
To which she responded: “Yeah: If you wanna be famous, and rich, it’s easy…”But don’t ask me, you need to ask Satan.”You can have it all.”
The article and quotes are, of course, entirely fabricated. The fake quotes may have been inspired by a YourNewsWire article that was published in September, which claimed Cyrus said that “Satan is a nice guy.” While neither website contains a disclaimer, RationalWiki provides a short description about YourNewsWire on their site:
YourNewsWire (styled as YourNewsWire.com) is an Los Angeles-based clickbait fake news website known for disseminating conspiracy theories and misleading information, contrary to its claimed motto (“News. Truth. Unfiltered”).
A similar fake story claimed that rapper Jay-Z said that “Satan is our true Lord during a backstage rant. There was no truth to that story—neither celebrity has shared their Satan-worshipping beliefs.
Cyrus returned to “The Voice” this year as a coach for the NBC hit’s 13th season.
Here are some examples of people sharing the fake story on social media:
