Illuminati symbolism in Katy Perry ft. Juicy J’s ‘Dark Horse’ song


UPDATE 20FEB2014: I’ve got the full music video analysis for the Dark Horse music video HERE.

Katy Perry is releasing the second single off her latest album Prism (see my post about the Illuminati & NSA symbolism behind that album concept). This new song is darker in nature and talks about the power of magic and rituals. Straight from Katy’s mouth (via

 According to Perry, ‘Dark Horse’ lyrics revolve around a woman asking a man not to be bewitched by her charms:  It’s kind of a juxtaposition. It’s got me, a pop artist, with a little bit of an urban kind of hip-hop-flavored background soundtrack to it, and the lyrics are kind of witchy and dark, as if I was a witch warning this man not to fall in love with me, and if you do know I’m going to be your last.”

The term ‘dark horse’ refers to the horse that is unlikely to win a race, but proceeds to do so against all odds. I think the magic references this ability to make something out of nothing, and create a new ‘winner’ with it.

Let’s take a look at some of the lyrics:

Make me your Aphrodite
Make me your one and only

Don’t make me your enemy, your enemy, your enemy


Aphrodite is the female Greek goddess (equivalent to the Roman goddess Venus) and is considered another aspect of the occult and magic. We can see this concept of goddess worship in all of the entertainment industry, with the most recent macabre example being that of Princess Diana’s death in Selena Gomez’ Drive Slow music video. It should also be noted that Selena Gomez’ name is also analogous to the goddess of the moon Selene:

Is Katy Perry going to be the next Illuminati goddess?

What else do we have for lyrics…:

So you wanna play with magic
Boy, you should know what you’re falling for
Baby do you dare to do this
Cause I’m coming at you like a dark horse
Are you ready for, ready for
A perfect storm, perfect storm
Cause once you’re mine, once you’re mine
There’s no going back


The initiate who plays with magic really should know what they are falling for, but that doesn’t stop the musicians and Hollywood stars from dabbling anyways. Kenneth Grant wrote about the downfall of playing with magic when one is not ready for it in The Magical Revival:

In mediaeval times secrecy was restored to more as a safeguard for the occultist than for the world of which he formed a part. The scene is not much different today, except that the tables are turned. The indiscriminate revelation of occult formulae often leads to insanity and death. The unprepared who meddle with occult processes invite trouble.

It couldn’t be spelled out any clearer. Katy Perry is hip to what is going on behind the scenes and she is being very much out in the open with it. We see mental breakdowns all of the time in the entertainment industry, which usually get blamed on drugs (e.g. Britney Spears shaving her head, Michael Jackson and all of his woes, Whitney Houston, Anna Nicole Smith, etc.).
Let’s see what else she talks about:

Mark my words
This love will make you levitate
Like a bird
Like a bird without a cage


Ahhh yes, the ol’ bird in a cage symbolism. This is rumored to indicate the person is a victim of MK ULTRA mind control, and the cage is an ‘alter’ that keeps them from breaking free. The trauma-based mind control techniques work something similar to an amnesic barrier that goes up right before something very traumatic happens (think car accidents). So it’s ironic she would talk about levitating (like the possessed) and then use this mind control analogy. Lady Gaga loves the bird symbolism as well:

In fact you can see the bird in the cage in her video Applause:

And finally here comes the Juice man:

She’ll turn cold as a freezer
That fairy tale ending with a knight in shining armor
She can be my Sleeping Beauty

Not a whole lot from Juicy J, (aside from the fact that his former rap identity belonged to Three-6-Mafia, with the devilish name and equally evil lyrics of drugs and murder), but he did say something about Sleeping Beauty which I recently revealed as being an extremely dark story about the rape of an underage girl. And that story is being retold from the point of view of the evil witch, Maleficent (which has its own Illuminati symbolism).

Why are we getting this tale from the dark point of view? To build up a sympathetic view for the dark hero. Conspiracy theorist Freeman talks about the latest trend in films such as Batman: Dark Knight where Hollywood has found a way to make us root for villains and darker forms of the super hero on Red Ice Radio:



I’ll post the video if (more like ‘when’) I see any Illuminati symbolism in it as well. For now, here is the official audio version:



Katy Perry and Juicy J performed this song on the 56th Grammys and I’ve got an entire post about the show (and Katy’s occult ritual performance) and her Dark Horse artwork with the all seeing eyes and mind control bird cages:

    So I was recently watching the Jessie J music video to the song “Price Tag” and I noticed that it was loaded with illuminati stuff. And I have seen Demi Lovato do a few all seeing eye signs.

      aphrodite rises out off the surface or @ the grammy’s out the fire its a ritual.
      A “perfect storm” is an expression that describes an event where a rare combination of circumstances will aggravate a situation drastically.[1] The term is also used to describe an actual phenomenon that happens to occur in such a confluence, resulting in an event of unusual magnitude.

      Karma refers to the principle of causality where intent and actions of an individual influence the future of that individual.
      Strictly speaking,karma, only refers to performing acts, not the consequences of those actions.

      • Bram vanhaelen says

        Jeffrey Lionel Dahmer also known as the Milwaukee Cannibal, was an American serial killer and sex offender, who committed the rape, murder and dismemberment of 17 men and boys between 1978 and 1991, with many of his later murders also involving necrophilia, cannibalism and the permanent preservation of body parts—typically all or part of the skeletal structure.

        Originally used to mean a young man, new to the game.
        Shorty’s heart is on steroids= the new mans heart is weak.

        • Bram vanhaelen says

          A succubus is a female demon or supernatural entity in folklore (traced back to medieval legend) that appears in dreams and takes the form of a human woman in order to seduce men, usually through sexual activity once the act is complete she steals the heart from their chest. The male counterpart is the incubus. Religious traditions hold that repeated sexual activity with a succubus may result in the deterioration of health or even death.

          In the past, succubi were generally depicted as frightening and demonic.

  2. Daryl says

    The black horse is the fourth and final horse that symbolized death in the bible talked about in the Revalations section.. This was an indicator that the God was taking back the earth (End of the World)

    • RIZN says

      I would say viewers and listeners be careful about how these perversions affect your mind. Why would someone evoke the hideous acts of Dahmer. The reality is that decency is completely gone from KP’s music and all that is called “ART.” KP’s evil seduction may be celebrated as art but now she can be celebrated as someone who is willing to dance on the bodies of those who suffered at the hands of Jeffrey Dahmer. She really will do anything for attention. Yes the demonic debauchery is evident in the lyrics. It would seem that one could not go this far into darkness without the influence of demons. In other words, a person opens themselves up to demons and in her case it seems like she wants everyone to join her.

    • Ryan says

      The Dark horse in revelations is actually referenced to an increasing crushing inflation of everything. Except oil and wine(alcohol)

      I wouldn’t be surprised if there be a global revolt because of it. Then the following pale horse, with him on it called death and will kill by sword, hunger, beasts of the earth, plague.

  3. Erwin says

    Instead of giving it a specific term like “illuminati”, perhaps we can treat it as part of the bigger “Beast” system.

  4. T says

    The most hilarious thing is if you watch the official music video now. If the whole video is not a blatant illuminati reference, I don’t know what is. It’s sad to see that some people don’t even understand where this type of media is coming from. They don’t try to hide it anymore, it’s all in plain sight yet people have no idea what it means.

    • Observer says

      @T Could u post a reply that provides some link between the illuminati and egyptian occultism? Bc as someone kinda new to the idea of the illuminati, I don’t feel like i got the same vibe from that video. The video has two iterations of KP, one as Khepri, and at the end atop the pyramid as Isis. The temple in the background has a statue of Seth visible, Sobek, Ra, and Bast make appearances and those are just those i recognized. Also, near the end when KP and her guards are approaching the pyramid, the guards are performing a dance of Sekhmet, like exact moves faced in the correct direction if the day cycle in the video is any indicator. Idk, just doesn’t seem like most of the illuminati sheise i’ve seen so far was so strongly just egyptian occultic

  5. EZZ says

    You could NOT have missed it any worse! This is NOT what those lyrics mean although you are right to think that. They are Satanic lyrics and this song is a kind of lyrical euphemismic wordplay on pledging your allegiance and selling your soul over to the devil.

  6. Michael Jackson says

    Whats really disturbing about this is that there are people who take these things seriously. As far as Greek goddess go the reference is just a way of referring to classical beauty and nothing to do with believing in some undefinable power — that part is added by you all — the rest is just poetic imaging to produce an effect — again actual belief in witchcraft not needed. If you take these things seriously then I suggest therapy so that you can tell the difference between reality and stories. Until you do you are a danger to yourself and others.

  7. says

    Whether or not there are in fact references to Illuminati, Egyptian beliefs, Witchcraft, etc. is something people could go on and on about (even though I agree some are in plain sight here). I suppose one would have to be educated (far beyond what most Christians study) on illuminati symbols in order to notice these things but I think all people- if not hardened sensitivity- will notice how something leaves them feeling and what that feeling does to them.
    First, taking things in music videos/media with a bit of a grain of salt is important and recognizing that these “music artists” are also “performers” creating something that may be both reflective of how they are/how they feel in a poetic type fictitious manner- regardless of if it is something you condone- or they may be a performing an entertaining role. (After all, if movies did not have drama or a climax of events they would be boring, similarly these music videos’ content hold interest by various methods.)
    Now, analyzing the affect their “art” may have on you and your thinking is another valid point as was made before. I personally do agree that subtle influences for negative (or positive) can creep into a person’s outlook- including stories/art/songs that may express warped views or promote a feeling or ideal you may not support.
    Why media has so much dark influence lies in that famous fall under the continual cycle of having to be and live unordinary in order to create unordinary, and justify their result and lifestyle by getting people to either just accept or to idolize it! Many people do not know what their own acceptance to this “cycle” does to themselves, or how it rewards that behavior throughout the media. This is why solid, divine convictions/testimony (faith/scriptures/service) give a person a steadfast iron rod of guidance upon which to measure up something questionable or misleading.
