Blink-182’s very own Matt Skiba has been in the spotlight recently with claims that he used witchcraft to put an end to the controversial Fyre Festival.
The Bahamas based festival was held last April, and had many fans paying over $1,200 for just a singular ticket. The festival resulted in many festival-goers becoming stranded with little food and no accomodation.
, Skiba insists he used “every inch of my energy” to stop “that thing happening.”
He also told NME “I had a bad feeling about that event. I consider myself a pagan and a witch. With every inch of my energy I wanted Fyre not to happen. I put all the electricity and energy in my body against that thing happening.”
“I’ve been to the Bahamas before and it’s so crass. You land in Nassau and the whole island is replete with beauty and culture, but there’s a lot of poverty. It is a largely black population then they build these places like Atlantis and The Cove that are walled off.”
“It’s classist and racist and then they decided to park a bunch of yachts with models to show off in front of those poor people, going down there with all your Ferraris and bullshit and yachts.”
“We pulled out for technical and logistical issues and the rest of it crumbled to shit because that’s what it was. It was bullshit. I used my witchy ways and it seemed to work. I’ll take responsibility and everyone can blame me. Shazam. I was on my couch feeling somewhat guilty, but very relieved that I wasn’t there with people stealing from each other.”
“I didn’t want a bunch of people to be marooned on bullshit island… I put all my energy into it not happening because for all the tea in China I didn’t want to be a part of something like that.”
