Illuminati symbolism in 2014 MTV VMAs-Video Music Awards


UPDATE 24AUG2014: OK, I may have been entirely wrong with my prediction that the 2014 MTV VMAs would be chocked full of Illuminati symbolism. Besides a guy wearing a shirt with a pyramid on the Beyonce Vanguard Award set, there was literally nothing. I hate to fill that cliche conspiracy theorist role but I’m going to call foul play here. Almost every past MTV award show gave us Illuminati symbolism, but all of a sudden there’s nothing?… AND to make things more suspicious, MTV actually let us know they were aware of the Illuminati symbolism allegations in some posts they made prior to the show (you’ll read about that in a minute). So either they’re making sure not to put those symbols out so jerks like me will stop pointing it out and drawing these allegations, and/or they are trying to divert attention away from the symbols so people will stop noticing them, only to reintroduce them later down the road to an unsuspecting audience. Either way I find it too convenient that there’s all of a sudden nothing at all. I suppose that’s a good thing for humanity, but I’m leery of celebrating quite yet.

For instance, the performance of Bang Bang by Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, and Jessie J didn’t have one single piece of All Seeing Eye symbolism; unlike the video which I breakdown in this post:

It seems I’m not the only one who is crying foul on the lack of symbolism, because Variety posted an article titled Why Did the MTV Video Music Awards Feel So Unhip?. They were apparently disappointed with the lack of shock, satanism, and symbolism that is usually paramount at every VMA show. To add to that; the article talked about how young the musicians were (a concept I’m currently laying out in a book about hip hop and the Illuminati agenda):

The VMAs are usually packed with pop stars, but most of the bigger names stayed away (like Lady Gaga) or just presented (like Jennifer Lopez, Demi Lovato and Lorde) this year. Who could tell the difference between Fifth Harmony and 5 Seconds of Summer? To help me navigate, I took along resident music expert Eloise Eller (@Eloiseeller), the 14-year-old daughter of Variety editor-in-chief of film Claudia Eller.

And another oddity is that Usher and Nicki Minaj performed She Came to Give it to You and unlike the Illuminati symbolism-filled video; we didn’t see one snake, All Seeing Eye, or skull:

I’m getting lots of great comments from some of you that seem to think I’ve overlooked some symbolism, so to play fair I’ll post some images of what people are saying was on there. One recurring theme (which I’m hesitant to commit to believing) is that the stages created three 6’s. I didn’t get a good shot; this is the best I could find:

Here’s an image from the Mark Dice video that also claims it to be 6’s:

IlluminatiWatcher MTV VMA All Seeing Eye 666 stage 2

Seems a bit of a stretch to me, but whatever.



Here’s a better shot of the stage with the three 6’s (maybe I will believe this one…) from a commenter on Facebook (thanks M.L.!):

Here’s a shot of Beyonce’s dress, which one commenter claims has a hidden Baphomet in it; take a look:

Do you see Baphomet?…

Here is the image of the pyramid (the Great Seal) on the one dancer’s shirt during Beyonce’s performance that I mentioned earlier:

MTV continued to play down the Illuminati symbolism in an effort to dilute the fact that they are most definitely usually pushing the Satanic agenda, but for some reason this year they write silly articles about it when in reality they had nothing. You’ll see; check out this MTV post-VMA article and read the ridiculous “arguments” for symbolism they post (like saying trio-groups won a lot of awards and trio=3=triangle=pyramid=Illuminati). Meanwhile, we did see young artists like Ariana Grande and Miley Cyrus sporting the Kabbalah bracelets (the red strings) that I’ve covered more extensively in my Kabbalah conspiracy theories and Illuminati symbolism in pop culture post:

Celebrities such as Madonna, Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, Anthony Kiedis, Mick Jagger, and many others have spent some time worshipping the Kabbalah. You’ll notice their membership through the symbolism of the red string they tote, usually with the hamsa amulet of hand with an evil eye on it. The string is believed to help ward off the evil eye (which begs a whole ton of questions since these same celebs give us that All Seeing Eye symbolism in photo shots). It’s also interesting that the supposed Illuminati family the Rothschilds has a name that literally means ‘red shield’ which seems analogous to this red string in order to ‘shield’ off the evil eye.

As you’ll see below, Ariana has been pulled into this ancient Hebrew mysticism:

And here is Miley Cyrus at the VMAs with it as well:

I’ll leave the original post intact so you can read through the guide for what should’ve been an event full of symbolism since the key players already provided that to us earlier.


*Obviously the VMAs haven’t run yet since I’m posting this three days before the event. I’m going to update this post after I watch it to include the symbolism we’re bound to see. That’s how confident I am we’ll be subjected to some form of symbolism. So check back on Aug. 24th for the knowledge to be dropped on you.

The 2014 MTV VMAs are set for Sunday, August 24th and the list of performers and nominated videos runs right down the list of videos I’ve seen that included some form of Illuminati symbolism this past year. No doubt we’ll be seeing plenty of symbolism, but for now you can use this post as a guide for what’s going on.

Strangely enough MTV got out ahead of themselves and made joke posts about how the Illuminati run the MTV VMAs


Lady Gaga VMAs bloody illuminati


…and also a counterpoint article on how the Illuminati do not run the MTV VMAs:


Beyonce 666 hand


You’ll notice yours truly is featured on both of those web pages in examples/hyperlinks as well, including this shot I caught of ‘N Sync flashing the 666 hand gesture in the 2013 VMAs:


NSync Illuminati 666 hand


I go into further detail on the importance of the All Seeing Eye in the Decoding Illuminati Symbolism: The All Seeing Eye and 666 Hand Gesture post:



Whether you want to believe that these were literally angels, giants, reptilians, or the offspring of Seth & Cain; the point is that the concept of a big eye in the sky watching over us is a common thread, lying subtlety below the radar to the uninitiated. The ancient Egyptians had the Eye of Horus, which is also known as the Eye of Ra. This ‘wedjat’ is a symbol of life because in Egyptian mythology, the god Horus had his moon eye torn out by Set, only to have Thoth invoke magic spells of the falcon to restore it (I could segue into the falcon being symbolism of the American eagle or the phoenix, but I’ll save that for another time). The Eye of Horus would continue to be used as a symbol of a protective amulet, including its use on the tombs of Egyptians to assist in the afterlife. Here’s the Eye of Horus in the post about the Illuminati symbolism behind Katy Perry & Juicy J’s video for Dark Horse:

IlluminatiWatcherDotCom Katy Perry Dark Horse Illuminati Eye Horus


So let’s get into the 2014 VMAs and see what we can make some claims on.

The first thing I should point out is the logo they chose this year; it is a symbol for the sun. I go into further detail on the importance of triangles, pyramids, and the sun in the Decoding Illuminati Symbolism: Triangles, Pyramids, and the Sun post:

The upright triangle represents solar power, or in the Hellenic tradition, the element of fire. The ancient deities that were affiliated with the sun were done so in order to convey the symbolism of strength and power (e.g. the Egyptian gods Horus and Ra, or the goddess Isis). The association of power and the sun eventually finds its way into a symbol for male power. This is appropriate since patriarchal-dominated societies are known for wars, primal urges, aggression and instantaneous flare ups. The lunar association with the goddess is tied into the inverted triangle; but we’ll get into that later.

If that wasn’t bad enough, there’s another logo with the Kaws design of the skull and this one has the ‘X’ Mark of the Beast over the All Seeing Eye! I can’t make this up, I swear:


MTV VMA All Seeing Eye


Besides the low-lying fruit of Yale Skull & Bone references with the skull, we’ve seen the ‘X’ over the All Seeing Eye in previous posts that I’ve made linking the Mark of the Beast with the ‘X’s like in Miller High Life ad Illuminati symbolism:


IlluminatiWatcherDotCom Miller Draft Beer ad X Beast Eye

You’ll notice that he’s holding the bottle so that he’s doing the All Seeing Eye thing, but also aligning the ‘X’s; symbolism for Satan or the Mark of the Beast, as I mentioned in Illuminati symbolism in Lily Allen Sheezus music video:

Notice the running theme of the ‘X’ you’ll find throughout. The ‘X’ is the Mark of the Beast and I cover this in much further detail in the Kabbalah conspiracy theories and Illuminati symbolism in pop culture post:

The concept of the Kabbalah and the demons within the Qliphoth are further explained by theorist Freeman Fly in his book Weird Stuff: Operation Culture Creation. He goes into detail on how the entertainment industry and even politicians are take part of this ritual of invoking the fallen angels through the extensive use of the number 66. Freeman asserts that there are 66 fallen angels in the Qliphoth, and we see the Hebrew numerology play that out as the English combinations of ‘F’s, ‘O’s, and ‘X’s:

‘F’= ‘6’

‘O’ = ‘15’ = ‘1+5’ = ‘6’.

‘X’ = ‘24’ = ‘2+4’ = ‘6’.

The performances included several songs that had accompanying videos that I’ve broke down the symbolism within. Let’s start with Ariana Grande’s Break Free.  The video symbolism analysis on Break Free showed that she was pushing an agenda of the Hebrew mystical belief system known as the Kabbalah:


IlluminatiWatcherDotCom Ariana Grande Break Free Kabbalah Tree of Life


In that screenshot above you can see in his chest the Kabbalah Tree of Life, which I break down in the Kabbalah conspiracy theories & Illuminati symbolism in pop culture article:

Kabbalah uses a Sephirot to convey the relationship of humans to the universe and divine essence of God, so that it can provide context to the 1% we experience.  The path to connecting to God’s light is blocked by an evil force referred to as Klippot (or Qlipoth). The Sephirot (a.k.a. Sefirot) is better known as the Tree of Life. It shows us eleven circles (but only ten attributes), with each one representing one of God’s emanations. Two of the circles convey one principle; as a conscious and unconscious value (Keter and Daat), giving us ten attributes in total. These ten attributes of God are what we interface with in our perceived world. All ten qualities are shown with interconnectedness, yet separate aspects that somehow all connect God with man. It is best expressed through the concept that we are all part of one ocean of consciousness. What one person does (whether good or evil) will ripple through and be felt by everyone else, and ultimately God.

You can also check out my Ariana Grande archive posts (includes her Problems performance with Iggy Azalea) and my video on my Youtube channel:



Another performance comes from Fifth Harmony and their song, Boss. In Illuminati & vow of silence symbolism by Fifth Harmony I covered a shot of the Aleister Crowley Vow of Silence (*note that I originally wrote the article before they really blew up; you can see who will be “successful” and who won’t by the symbolism sometimes):

They released a video called BO$$ that has the Vow of Silence in it. There is a sequence where they each individually do it and then a group shot of all of them doing it:


IlluminatiWatcherDotCom Fifth Harmony BOSS Vow of Silence


Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora are two more notorious Illuminati-symbol providers, and they are performing Black Widow. In Illuminati symbolism of Iggy Azalea’s Black Widow I cover  some Moloch symbols we see in the video:


IlluminatiWatcherDotCom Iggy Azalea Black Widow Moloch 2


There’s also a full Rita Ora analysis in Is Rita Ora in the Illuminati?… Yes.


IlluminatiWatcherDotCom Rita Ora Illuminati Roc Triangle


Nicki Minaj also had a video prior to her VMA performance for Anaconda which I covered (it had minor symbolism but everyone was ranting and raving about it, so I obliged):


IlluminatiWatcherDotCom Nicki Minaj Anaconda Illuminati All Seeing Eye


Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande, and Jessie J have this song called Bang Bang (that is atrocious) and you’ll notice Jessie J has been made over since we first saw her. Jessie J’s given us enough Illuminati symbolism that we shouldn’t be surprised to see some more:


jessie j 666


IlluminatiWatcherDotCom Jessie J Thunder One All Seeing Eye



The boy band 5 Seconds of Summer were also obviously going somewhere due to their symbolism that I exposed long ago:


IlluminatiWatcherDotCom 5SOS Illuminati All Seeing Eye


We also have Beyonce who is gonna clean up at the VMAs; particularly for Drunk in Love, a video I exposed for its Semiramis and All Seeing Eye symbolism:


IlluminatiWatcherDotCom Beyonce Drunk In Love All Seeing Eye


Eminem and Rihanna aren’t on the performance list but their video Monster is nominated for several awards. The post for Illuminati symbolism in Eminem ft Rihanna Monster video goes further:

The eye is tied into all of the entertainment industry (hence the reason we see it all of the time) through the occult and magick rituals played out by the modern day Thelemite-followers of Aleister Crowley. In fact, Eminem is literally playing out the duality that Crowley believed in with his two complementary concepts of ‘Do What Thou Wilt’ and ‘Love is the law, love under will’. I say this because he has showed us the side of him that is dark and demonic (the Rainman stuff), and also the Recovery album period where he was trying to bear the light of good. While we’re talking about the occult and Crowley, is it any coincidence that Eminem’s real last name is Mathers, when the founder of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn was Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers?  




Other nominees that I’ve made Illuminati symbolism posts include Katy Perry & Juicy J’s video for Dark HorseEminem’s Berzerk, Jason DeRulo’s Talk Dirty, Beyonce’s PartitionOK Go’s Writing’s on the Wall, Arcade Fire’s Reflektor, and Eminem’s Rap God (see, I told you there was a lot of symbolism I’ve covered before).

You can check out the previous MTV events with Illuminati symbolism in posts I made about the 2013 VMAs:


IlluminatiWatcherDotCom VMA Illuminati gaga 2



…and the 2012 MTV VMAs also gave us Illuminati symbols (be forewarned I was still new at website publishing so those older posts are a little unpolished):

Come back again on August 24th and I’ll update this post with the symbols as it happens.

  1. There may have been a lack of overt symbols due to Pepsi’s new slogan/message: “live for now”.depending on where you place emphasis in the sentence it could read “live…for now”

    • I wasn’t able to watch the VMA’s this year (and actually I don’t even want to), but I just can’t believe that there was no symbolisms what so ever? Really? The only thing I saw was a commercial of the VMA’s showing what artists were performing at the VMA’s this year and they all were nothing but Illuminati puppets.

      • Did we watch the same VMAs here? I watched a few minutes here and there when my sister tuned in. Some moments really struck hard illuminated notes. Ill start with the weakest symbolism. I believe the stage background was the iris of an eye, representing the all seeing eye. The all seeing eye also stands out in the spider web during that spider dance “ritual”. The web on the wall has a slanted two tiered pyramid with the top a glowing dot, which is the center of the web. The backup dancers represented black widows which are highly poisonous. The performance had a ritual feel to it complete with dress and all. The costumes also had an hourglass. This could be a symbol for time or a sign to meet. The wierdest one, which heavily came across as ritualistic, was Minajs reptile performance. If this was an in your face representation of reptilian hierarchy, I don’t know what is.
        I’m sure there were many more I missed but these had the hair on my neck standing up.

        • I’m not sure Zach; it seemed to not have the standard “over the top” symbolism and Satanic stuff we’ve seen before. All of that stuff is too much of a stretch. I noticed the lighting looked like an eye but it still felt like a weak connection ‘cuz nothing went with it. John mentioned the 6’s and I think he’s right, I’ll have to watch it again.

        • I watched this year due to curiosity having never tuned in before only reading about things after here and at vigilant citizen and I agree with this comment and disagree with authors update that there was little to no symbolism. I’ve not the urge at the moment to recount them all but though they were a lot more inconspicuous this year instead of the blatant shoved in your face style show that we are used to I will note the highlight it seemed was making fun of taylor swifts attempts to break out of country and to highlight aryana grande ‘ s recent induction.

          • Also noted was after a.g. revived moon man short silent tribute to robin williams as sacrifice. Suge knight shot at vma pre party and I think I remember reading 3 dead. 2nd time s.k. shot at vma pre party

        • The first thing I noticed was the stage floor. It was a giant 69 (I thought of it as 6 and inverted 6 for both viewing angles). Also during beyonces performance when she was singing “I woke up like this” everything went red and there were like 6 of her faces on the backdrop all as demons. Everyone wore black too, again, almost like a funeral. But that’s just what I saw!

  2. The one thing I noticed was the stage from a distance in several camera shots showed the numbers 666. The stage was designed to require the person getting the reward to walk through the six to what seemed to be a center of the six or maybe an eye.

    • Good catch John, I hadn’t noticed that but now that you mention it… I’ve still got it on my DVR so I’ll watch it again.

  3. Ariana Grande started the show coming out of a huge pyramid also. Minor thing, but inportant.

    I think these VMAs were important in the sense that they were “tame” I saw sex kittens and slaves everywhere yet the mainstream calls the show “tame.” I think this show was the way for them to show us that we are finally complete slaves. They don’t need a huge ritual to indtroduce anyone or any big new players because its already all set.

    The one ritual I saw was that introduction of ariana and that other girl. It wasn’t as huge as like a Britney or Taylor swift introduction because we didn’t need the shock factor.

    Tl:dr Now that everyone sees Illuminati society as normal, we don’t nees the huge antics we were getting in past years

  4. Did anyone else notice the baphomet on Beyoncé sequin dress? Or the 666 stage? Ariana grande’s kabalah bracelet? VMAs symbolism

    Post a Reply
  5. Also that the whole stage looked like a 777 jet engine turbine? Symbolism of the latest missing and shot down airlines? Hmm

  6. I couldn’t help but notice how many of the between performance props and pre-commercial filler that was supposed to resemble rotating camera viewing mechanisms, looked like the eye… Creepy!

  7. did you not see the 666 at center stage? I haven’t read the comments so don’t know if anyone else has pointed that out.

    Post a Reply
  8. Well, everyone that has commented here is right. The “69” stage was one of the things I noticed, and the reptiles from Nicki Minaj’s Anaconda performance too. In some photos i’ve seen of that performance they used some light or something like that to make some parts of the body of Nicki and the dancers look like they where reptiles. And this year’s logo of the VMAs was a huge iris, that was all over the stage too.

    Post a Reply
  9. Another thing… Not sure if this is relevant or not…. But Blue Ivy was introduced to the world during Beyonces appearance on the VMAs where she revealed her pregnancy. Notice her first public appearance was on the VMAs last night. Kind of ironic to me

    Post a Reply
  10. Also notice the nominees are inside of a camera lense which is inside of a sun! The sun is the symbol that was promoting the show all week. I’m uploading clips of camera lense/suns/demons/sixes on my YouTube katieleigh27 for you to see examples. Why was Katy dressed as Britney? I even put up a video of how they walk off stage like the person up there talked about.

    Post a Reply
  11. Last comment I promise… But when beyonce is performing it is SO obvious when “Sasha” or whatever takes over. Her whole face looks sooooo different. It’s obvious right after the blue section of the performance (last song was the feminist one) everything goes red, she like jerks her neck, and she’s just completely different I think. Even her daughter was scared looking. The stage is definitely a 666. And I also noticed all the announcers looked like they were 15 year olds but sexualized.

  12. you may have noticed in the commercials hyping up the event with a girl throwing up the triangle and a subliminal message of “they are coming” might wanna look into that …

  13. there was plenty of illuminati at this VMA, starting with date 8/24/2014 which equal 13, Numerology is a big part of the illuminati and the belief in the influence of numbers and symbols that are filled with darkness. There were plenty of numbers and plenty of weird comments that suggested other wise, I suggest learning Astrology and Numerology if one must fully decode the messages within.

    Post a Reply
  14. TYPO it equal 12 and that is 3 in numerology and many believe that 3 is the number of god such as in 1. GOD 2. Christ 3. Holy spirit is why its 3. so use by evil is simply a mockery of GOD. The stage is used in witchcraft that is a symbol for portal used to invoke spirits.
