ABOUT ZEENA: ARTICLES, BOOKS & INTERVIEWS

Since her first media appearance in 1965, Zeena has been the subject of hundreds of sensational and biased journalistic reports and interviews. Having been raised in a publicity-hungry media circus, she saw from an early age what a sad spectacle the courting of public attention can be. She later received an invaluable if unasked for education in the myth of "objective journalism" during the height of her mainstream public presence in the United States media from 1985-1990 and in the European music press during her 1988-1993 tour of duty with Radio Werewolf. Preferring to allow her work to speak for itself and indifferent to public opinion, Zeena has granted only a very few interviews since 1993 to carefully selected specialty publications. The following examples offer a representative sample of interviews from the various phases of Zeena's spiritual and artistic evolution. The webmasters will add more as time allows. In her capacity as Hemet-neter Tepi Seth of the Sethian Liberation Movement, Zeena only grants interviews to serious scholars of religion and mysticism and/or practicing adherents of a spiritual path. Decades of experience has taught her that spiritual initiation is too complex a topic for standard journalism's limited "sound bite" and lowest common denominator perspective.


Press Coverage of Zeena's Baptism (1967 - 1968)

Zeena's baptism, reported the in U.S. men's magazine See for Men, February 1968. Because of her father's pre-existing reputation as a nightclub organist, strip-show impresario and willing provider of nude photo ops with his Friday night rituals, Zeena's baptism was often reported in the same lurid men's magazines in which her father had been well established. Here is one example where Zeena's baptism story ran along side a salacious report "Prostitution European Style!". By using Zeena as a convenient prop for their media circus from the beginning of her life, her parents set her up in the unenviable position of constantly having to battle public accusations and prurient implications of the classic satanic sexual/ritual abuse argument. LaVey's violence, his abuse of his sexual partners and common law wife, and his toleration of sexual molestation were everyday features in his dysfunctional family. But these abuses were not ritual in nature, nor did they have anything to do with satanism, religion or philosophy. It was simply a case of two mentally challenged parents who shouldn't have had custody of their children since they weren't fit to properly care for or protect them from harm.
