Friday the 13th is coming up, and it's the first of two for 2018. We compiled a list of celebrities who’ve spoken in the past about their own superstitions. From Taylor Swift’s lucky number to Steven Tyler’s raccoon teeth, check out some of our faves here!
1. Taylor Swift
13 is Taylor’s lucky number. “I was born on the 13th. I turned 13 on Friday the 13th. My first album went gold in 13 weeks. My first #1 song had a 13-second intro,” she explained to MTV back in 2009. “Every time I’ve won an award I’ve been seated in either the 13th seat, the 13th row, the 13th section or row M, which is the 13th letter.”
2. Ariana Grande
The “Break Free” singer once admitted on Twitter: "I used to eat donuts for good luck before auditions when I was little.”
3. Lady Gaga
Gaga is superstitious about sex. She once told AMP Radio: “I have weird superstitions about sex. If you're not having sex with someone who really cares about you or who really loves you they can screw up your energy.”
4. Chris Martin
The Coldplay frontman reportedly won’t go onstage before brushing his teeth. "There are about 18 things I have to do before I can go out to perform – most of them are too ridiculous to repeat," he said via the Independent. "One is I have to brush my teeth before I go on stage, otherwise I just don't feel smart enough."
While explaining the inspiration behind her song “Supernatural,” Kesha admitted in an interview with Ryan Seacrest that she’s been intimate with a ghost. “It’s about experiences with the supernatural... but in a sexy way,” she said. “I had a couple of experiences with the supernatural. I don’t know his name! He was a ghost! I’m very open to it.”
6. Steven Tyler
The Aerosmith frontman wears a necklace comprised of the teeth of a raccoon he caught when he was a child. “I wear it for good luck,” he told Parade magazine.
7. Keith Richards
He requires a shepherd’s pie at every Rolling Stones show, and he insists he be the first person to break the crust. If anyone else cuts into the pie first, Keith reportedly insists a new one be reproduced before him, according to Rolling Stone.
8. Austin Mahone
Austin makes sure to carry a specific hat around with him, everywhere he goes. "My first snapback I ever bought was a Philly's 76ers hat," he said in an interview with Saturday Night Online Live With Romeo. "I always gotta have that on the road."
9. Heidi Klum
The supermodel and “Project Runway” host carries a bag of baby teeth around with her for good luck. “Well, I don’t like advertise it,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “No, I did show somebody once and it fell under the seat and the flight attendant came over and he’s like, ”Can I help you?” and I was like, ”Yeah, I’m just looking for my teeth.” And he’s like, ”Oh.” I had to find it — it’s not good luck if I leave the tooth on the plane.
10. Megan Fox
Megan’s been transparent about her belief in the paranormal several times in the past, and it even extends to the soundtrack she listens to whenever she flies. According to the Mirror, she said, "I know for a fact it's not my destiny to die listening to a Britney Spears album. So I always put that on in my iPhone when I'm flying because it won't crash as long as I've got Britney on.”
