Celebrity Prayer Candles- Amy of Guadalupe, Sister Nicki Minaj and more!
Prayer candles are a tradition which has a Catholicism spirit to it, as the beeswax candles are traditionally used in churches. You light the candle and
make a wish make a blessing and you can direct this at a person or to god- think of each candle as a prayer for a person. Many of these candles feature religious iconography such as Jesus and Mother Mary, but these celebrity prayer candles from Idol Kill serve a different deity.
I don’t think they’re suggesting we worship at the altar of celebrity or ask Mother Gaga to grant our wishes, but they are making a lighthearted statement about religion and beliefs as well as creating some rather cool looking candles. I’m not sure if the Amy Winehouse candle is going a little too far, but I find the Nicki Minaj version very entertaining.
