A TikToker has gone viral after claiming Adele’s new music video is “demonic” and “satanic”.
Victoria B has won support and quite a bit of criticism after accusing the singer of ‘mocking Christianity’ and ‘romanticizing sin’ in the video for her latest single Oh my God.
The video was posted earlier this week by Adele as the second single from her fourth album, 30, and while the striking visuals were applauded by her fans, it’s clear that not everyone is impressed.
Victoria said she was usually a huge fan of Adele, having “grew up singing her songs”, but expressed disappointment with the themes of the video, saying “people look possessed…he a lot of inappropriate things are happening”.
“The song is about how she knows sin is bad, but she just wants to have fun,” she explains, pointing out that the video includes a reference to Eve’s original sin by showing Adele eating an apple. .
“I’m just sad and a little disappointed, but not surprised,” she said, saying the song’s title itself “breaks one of the Ten Commandments.”
“It’s annoying to me because we literally can’t have a single celebrity who, you know… like a single person can’t sell their soul so that I can profit from their business,” she concludes.
Victoria’s thoughts were echoed by many of her Christian followers, with one person commenting: “I’m so disappointed when I hear a good song and then they take the name of the Lord in vain.”
‘It’s sad like I’m really disappointed because Adele is my favorite artist or [used] be up to this video,’ another person wrote.
But others questioned the review, with one person responding, “I just watch the video and there’s nothing demonic or satanic about it.” You are all too sensitive these days.
“BROS THIS IS A MUSIC VIDEO,” wrote another person, with a third saying, “Wait are you for real?”
Victoria has since disabled comments on her post and recorded a follow-up video after her original went viral, receiving over 280,000 views.
‘As a follower of Jesus, when people are very blatant on which side of the spectrum they’re on…I don’t support them and listen to their stuff, which is why I’m like, ‘Adele why did done you gotta do it,” she said in her follow-up. “I’m about to go delete all my songs from Adele now.”
