Shane Lynch, 47, is best known as part of the iconic nineties boy-band Boyzone, which he has been a part of since 1993.

However, he has been engulfed in a new row after he made bizarre claims about Taylor Swift.


Amid peak popularity for the Grammy winning superstar, he has claimed that she has channelled the devil in front of millions of fans and in plain sight.

The committed Christian first made his opinion about the industry known on a Premier Christian Radio podcast.

He told the outlet that he thinks that some of the music industry is a danger to society.

“I think when you’re looking at a lot of the artists out there, a lot of their stage shows are Satanic rituals live in front of 20,000 people without them realising and recognising,” Shane explained.

“You’ll see a lot of hoods up and masks on and fire ceremonies.


“Even down to Taylor Swift — one of the biggest artists in the world — you watch one of her shows and she has two or three different demonic rituals to do with the pentagrams on the ground, to do with all sorts of stuff on her stage.”

He added: “But to a lot of people it’s just art and that’s how people are seeing it, unfortunately.”

The 34-year-old global sensation has previously been dogged by claims that she has invoked the devil on stage.

Some have suggested one of her hand signals have channelled the horns of the devil.

But other’s have suggested the gesture has a sweeter meaning, that it’s the sign language gesture for, “I love you”.


The singer has previously posted religious content on his social media after he launched his Amen line, alongside his wife – and Real Housewives Of Cheshire star – Sheena.

Shane previously slammed artists like Sam Smith and Beyoncé as he thought the pair were “so demonic it’s unbelievable”.

Speaking about the industry, he fumed: “When it comes to a lot of the music that’s out there at the moment — more of the hip-hop side of things — there is a lot of hidden Satanic and a lot of evil within them, including down to the beats. It’s very real.

“Music attaches to your emotions. It has a connection to your spirit and how you feel.

“That’s why I’ve stopped listening to those types of music myself because it doesn’t suit my spirit.

“It 100 per cent has an effect on society. I think our society has never been worse in many areas, and it starts from our children.”

He added: “It’s coming in right at our children from the very beginning to get them to sway away from anything Godly, anything controlled or disciplined.

“It’s getting wilder and wilder out there for a reason.”
