It was just a week ago that singer Tiffany Evans spoke out against Rihanna’s Russian Roulette as well as the satanic side of the music industry. Singer Omarion was recently asked for his opinion on Rihanna’s song and he too revealed a few things about the dark and shady side of the industry:
I don’t personally know Rihanna’s beliefs but I think there’s a very dark and very sinister part of the entertainment business and I think it’s very visible,” he said. “This is something that a lot of people don’t look at [but for example] Michael Jackson used to be a Jehovah’s Witness and I remember hearing that he wanted to separate from the religion — and this was during the time that he was doing ‘Thriller’ [which ended up being] his biggest album.”
Fast forward to now [and] it really made me think that there is a [time as an artist] where there’s going to be a choice. The[entertainment] world [dictates] that you have to be with three or four women, or do this in order to get that [and] I think it’s really interesting. With God and the industry, it’s really dark. The dark side is having to get in, there’s a certain submission you need to have. Just like a gang [initiation], so to speak. You might have to do something against your moral code. I’m not saying that it’s always this way, but when you’re someone that is young and you’re coming up in the industry and you really don’t have a grip on your morals it can be very dark. The game is just about over saturation.
I don’t know if Rihanna [has fallen victim to those pressures]. I’ve never really heard her speak about it. I hope that she doesn’t believe in that stuff and I don’t think that she does, but I don’t know. It’s not just been a Rihanna thing, [there’s has been religious speculation] about a lot of artists.
I guess these type of things can happen no matter what industry you are in but I have to wonder if it is all worth it? People want fame, money and riches so bad that they’d sell their soul to obtain it. I do think that some of the satanic rumors about the industry are exaggerated a little however this can be very discouraging to an aspiring singer or rapper especially if they don’t have a strong team in place.
