David Bowie used witchcraft to beat cocaine paranoia...

A white witch helped cure David Bowie of his crippling drug-fuelled paranoia, according to a revealing new book about the rock star.

Writer Mark Spitz spent years talking to Bowie, as well as the rocker's family and friends, in a bid to explode myths about the Let's Dance legend in his new tome, Bowie.

And Spitz reveals how the rocker called on magic to help him get through a terrifying part of his life.

In the book, Spitz writes, "While planning the follow-up to Young Americans (album), Bowie would sit in the house with a pile of high-quality cocaine atop the glass coffee table, a sketch pad and a stack of books. Psychic Self Defense was his favourite. Its author describes the book as a 'safeguard for protecting yourself against paranormal malevolence.'

"Using this and more arcane books on witchcraft, white magic and its malevolent counterpart, black magic, as rough guides to his own rapidly fragmenting psyche, Bowie began drawing protective pentagrams on every surface."

Bowie told the author, "I'd stay up for weeks. Even people like Keith Richards were floored by it. And there were pieces of me all over the floor. I paid with the worst manic depression of my life. My psyche went through the roof, it just fractured into pieces. I was hallucinating 24 hours a day."

Spitz adds, "Increasingly Bowie was convinced there were witches after his semen. They were intent on using it to make a child to sacrifice to the devil, essentially the plot to Roman Polanski's 1968 supernatural classic Rosemary's Baby."

A friend hooked Bowie up with New York-based white witch Walli Elmlark.
The author adds, "Elmlark quickly and successfully exorcised the pool. Angie (Bowie), who was living there at the time, noted that it started to bubble and smoke, and that it only rained outside David's window while the rest of the L.A. sky was clear. Elmlark wrote a series of spells and incantations out for Bowie as he continued to wrestle with the forces of darkness."

:ilold:

I think exorcisms can be beneficial to some people who people strongly in them. Its kind of like a religious experience to the "possessed", but I still don't believe it.

It cracks me up that it could be considered "news" that constant nose-powdering could lead you to think and do some seriously deranged shit, but I guess this kinda stuff flies because Bowie's a pimp.

"Increasingly Bowie was convinced there were witches after his semen."

I would've just let them have it... provided they were hot witches.

Next time I watch The Labyrinth I'll have to remember that Bowie probably wasn't acting and didn't realize it was just a movie.

Am I just a sick fuck or did anyone else notice he had a huge over-dramatic package in that film?

No, you're not the only one.

@ Smithington: That was one whacked-out movie.

We are always acting on what has just finished happening. It happened at least 1/30th of a second ago. We think we're in the present, but we aren't. The present we know is only a movie of the past.

I find it very difficult to take David Bowie seriously.  He changes his sexual orientation every few years and denies the past.

I doubt even David Bowie takes David Bowie seriously.

Actually Bowie had a large role in cinematography and directing camera angles for that movie, so it seems he was deliberately emphasizing his package.
