R.E.M.‘s Mike Mills has responded to Alex Jones’ claim that all artists asked to “pledge themselves to Lucifer” before signing record deals.
Speaking on his own biblical news channel His Glory, provocateur and commentator Jones said that he believes musicians have to “reject Jesus Christ” and “pledge” themselves to the devil before inking deals.
“It happened to Mark Dice, it happened to me, it happened to a bunch of other people I’ve talked to — before you’re offered a national TV show, before you’re offered a major record deal — they get you in a room and they say, ‘Listen, we want you to reject Jesus Christ and pledge yourself to Lucifer,’” Jones said.
He added that he had an “off the record conversation” with record executives who, he said, confirmed the theory.
“You’re sitting there in the meeting in a high rise building around an office table, and you’re like, ‘Are you kidding?’ And they’re like, ‘No, we’re very serious,’” he went on. “I tell viewers that story, you know, 20 years ago, and they go, ‘No, that’s insane.’ No, that really happened.”
In response, Mills jokingly confirmed the theory in a tweet which you can see below.
