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:
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?…
It wouldn’t have been her first time…
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…
…and also a counterpoint article on how the Illuminati do not run the MTV VMAs:
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:
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:
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:
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:
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:
‘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:
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.
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:
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:
There’s also a full Rita Ora analysis in Is Rita Ora in the Illuminati?… Yes.
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):
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:
The boy band 5 Seconds of Summer were also obviously going somewhere due to their symbolism that I exposed long ago:
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:
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 Horse, Eminem’s Berzerk, Jason DeRulo’s Talk Dirty, Beyonce’s Partition, OK 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:
…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.
