Meet 24-year-old Stacey Gale from Queens, New York. Stacey is one of five people in the world that suffers from a rare condition called musicogenic epilepsy. Certain songs can trigger grand mal seizures in Stacey. She receives the worst kind of seizures when listening to Sean Paul’s “Temperature.”
She said she first felt it 3 years ago at a bbq. The song came on and all hell broke loose. She said, “As soon as the beat comes on, I don’t know what it is, it just triggers my seizure. It’s like a weird sensation you get, like a tingling in your head. I smelled something funny, a weird smell.” Next thing she knew she was in the hospital. She also had to quit her choir, because it was causing seizures.
“Sean Paul was giving me seizures. I was very surprised, because he was one of my favorite artists.” The doctors played the song in the hospital and found out Sean Paul was definitely giving the girl the crazies.
Stacey underwent a brain surgery last October and it looks like she’s cured. At a press conference yesterday they played the Sean Paul song and she felt nothing. Stacey said, “Had that been before, I would have been on the floor, obviously, having a seizure.”
That’s because Sean Paul is the devil’s music! It’s putting the sin in her. In all seriousness, I just listened to that song and I think I had a few minor seizures as well.
