13 Famous Historical Figures Who May Have Sold Their Soul to The Devil
Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne is so notorious for his connections to the occult that his nickname, “Ozzy Prince of Darkness,” was even made the name of his solo studio album. Osbourne’s personal connection to the Devil is well documented, as he has been open about it throughout his career.
In a 1984 issue of Hit Parader, Osbourne said, “I really wish I knew why I’ve done some of the things I’ve done over the years. Sometimes I think that I’m possessed by some outside spirit. A few years ago, I was convinced of that – I thought I truly was possessed by the Devil. I remember sitting through The Exorcist a dozen times, saying to myself, ‘Yeah, I can relate to that.'”
In another issue, he stated, “I don’t know if I’m a medium for some outside source. Whatever it is, frankly, I hope it is not what I think … Satan.”
He also practically admitted that he made a deal himself, saying, “I already have. Well, you sell your soul to the Devil when you do something yourself that you shouldn’t, and I already have. I’ve f*cking lived my life to the fullest. If there’s an afterlife, I’ve got a good f*cking spot in the furnace, you know?”
