Illuminati symbolism in 2013 MTV VMA award show


The 2013 MTV Video Music Awards show featured several acts that are known for giving us the Illuminati symbolism that their handlers enforce. Acts and appearances included Katy Perry (see Illuminati symbolism in Prism), Lady Gaga (see Illuminati symbolism in Applause music video), Kanye West (see Yeezus post), Drake (see Illuminati symbolism in Started From the Bottom music video), Miley Cyrus (see Illuminati symbolism in We Can’t Stop music video), Robin Thicke (see Illuminati symbolism in Blurred Lines music video), and Justin Timberlake (see Illuminati symbolism in Tunnel Vision).

The show started out with Lady Gaga performing Applause, which gave us a couple of ‘666’ hand gestures over her eye (sorry; all of the pictures were literally lifted from my TV because MTV is pretty good at blocking the VMAs from showing up on the internet). (*However, it appears that these videos did show up online on MTV’s website. I’m posting the best/clearest images that I could find on the streaming video on MTV right after my grainy TV shots):

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


Next we had Miley Cyrus come out and perform We Can’t Stop and she wore a shirt with a bear that had the one eye thing on it, which I could see past, but her music video is so loaded with it that it’s undeniably linked up to the Illuminati symbolism which references the Aeon of Horus and Aleister Crowley (the Aeon of Horus is the third age of man that we’ve entered which is dominated by child worship which is all around us thanks to MTV and their incessant pushing on young musicians and Disney with their actors):

And then Robin Thicke came out to perform Give it 2 U with 2 Chainz and Kendrick Lamar, and we see Kendrick wearing a shirt that says ‘CMNY + CMLA 777’. The CMNY stands for ‘Clothes Minds New York,’ and they’ve got a clothing line that features crucifixes and the word ‘Trinity.’ Is it evil? I don’t know. You judge that for yourself. Here’s an image from their clothing website Clothes Minds:



I’m gonna spice it up a bit and say that 777 you see on his shirt is a reference to Aleister Crowley and the occult, which I covered in both my super awesome post about Crowley and the Illuminati magick and also about the Rihanna 777 documentary.

Here’s Aleister Crowley in case you’re not familiar, he’s he one who coined the phrase ‘Do What Thou Wilt’:

Next we saw Daft Punk and Pharrell wearing black inverted pyramid necklaces:

After that we got Justin Timberlake’s performance which gave us yet another of the ‘666’ hand gesture:

JT already is known for giving us the ‘666’ hand gesture, so don’t front like I’m making this shit up:

And then the rest of N’Sync came out and J.C. did his best Timberlake impersonation and dropped his own ‘666’. If you didn’t see it, don’t worry, they buried it between bright flashes of ‘illuminating’ light:

Not to get off subject, but I couldn’t help but notice how much the cameras panned to the audience only to reveal the same exact row every time. Literally, 90% of the time they took crowd shots of the row with Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez, and Lady Gaga. Almost always with Swift in the foreground. Once in awhile they’d show that boy band One Direction (see the Best Song Ever Illuminati symbolism) or maybe Rihanna, but Taylor Swift got a seriously disproportionate amount of camera time. Is the Illuminati making big plans for her in the future?

Drake came on and wore the owl necklace, which is expected since that’s the OVO logo (his little start up). I don’t want to drone on about the owl because I’ve done it so much in the past, so read up on Moloch and the symbolism you find from Drake (see Illuminati symbolism in Started From the Bottom music video).

I didn’t catch anything on the final performance of Katy Perry’s (besides that awful song of hers…). So this year is a wrap, unless someone saw something that I didn’t on that one.

The 2012 MTV VMAs featured Illuminati symbolism as well, so it should be no surprise that we’d get a similar taste of the subtle cues that direct us towards the Illuminati agenda. Check the symbolism from 2012 out HERE. One more oddity worth mentioning is that Neil Armstrong died on August 25th, 2012 (same day of the 2013 MTV VMAs; although they occur at this same time every year so maybe it doesn’t mean anything). The award for the VMAs is the moon man, which Neil Armstrong is literally known as for being the first person to walk on the moon (he performed a Freemasonry ritual along side Buzz Aldrin in 1969 as Apollo 11 approached the moon- discussed on Ancient Aliens’ NASA Connections episode). Is there a link?…

MTV VMA Moonman

Buzz and Neil took a Masonic flag to the lunar surface and were rumored to have performed a ritual ceremony:


The Apollo 11 mission was executed such that the module would land on the Sea of Tranquility on the moon on July 20th. This date corresponds as the same date of the Batman Dark Knight Rises Aurora Colorado shootings. Is this a link?… The Illuminati are obsessed with rituals and dates, so it’s not all that far-fetched.

Feel free to leave your comments on all of this below. And if you’re new to my website, you can’t get away without me trying to peddle my book, so buy A Grand Unified Conspiracy Theory: The Illuminati, Ancient Aliens and Pop Culture on Kindle:


After the awards; Brooke Shields was talkin’ bad on Miley Cyrus, but what is important here is that she wonders who is “advising her” (those were her words) which alludes to the fact that these musicians and stars have Illuminati handlers:

  1. You should look up the Denver, Colorado airport underground storage thingy!!
    I feel as if the illuminati is trying to make this “New World Order” happen very soon and they’re already trying to make a place for “us” just look that up, lol.

    • yall do know 666 is the number of the devil and 777 is the number of god right
      Kendrick wasent wearing a “satanic” shirt and plus trinity means father(god) son(jesus) and holy spirit.

      • Like Satan, the Illuminati enjoy mocking God. So, no wonder they would take 777 or the trinity and mock it.

  4. Hello everybody!

    First of all congratulation to the web master for such nice work that I am sure helps people putting the puzzle together.

    I watched the MTV VMA Award Show las night and I have to say that it was interesting to see all that Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Justin Timberlake illuminati symbolism.
    Personally I think that the most evil part came when Jared Leto introduces Kanye West like a “god” using God’s words, my heart broke into pieces when I heard that, not when it came out of Jared, which is very expectable as he is a puppet in the hands of the illuminati, but when everybody in the crowed shouted the same words back in unison. VERY SCARY!!!! Got the Goose bumps and a big RED ALERT alarm went off…..Here is what I heard:

    Jared Leto: The next performer has been called the number one living and breathing rockstar. The Michael Jordan of music, 100% Jimmy Hendrix, complete awesomeness, the nucleus and of course: A “god” and those are just the things he says about himself…….(You can hear the crowed cheering and the energy building up)

    Jared Leto: Brooking, are you ready??!!!

    Crowed: (Cheers and shouts)

    Jared Leto: Give me an “amen”

    Crowed: “amen”

    Jared Leto: “alleluia”

    Crowed: “alleluia”

    Jared Leto: “praise the lord” (he is certainly not My Lord)

    Crowed: “praise the lord”

    Here comes the best part:

    Jared Leto: Make some noise for “jesus” himself!!!!!!!!!

    Crowed: Cheering and shouting.

    I have tried to find this bit on Youtube but it is nowhere to be found. You have to download the whole thing to watch this bit.

    All the best from The Canary Islands.

    • Yeezus. He has the crowd call him Yeezus.

      Notice the evolution of his name through the years as the illuminati has started handling him:
      Kanye… Yeezy… Yeezus.

  5. You forgot to add the fact that when they introduced Kanya West. THe man said he calls himself GOD. Then he said repeat after me, Hallijeah, praise the lord, and Amen, no introudcing Kanya West, and the crowd chanted just what he said. THIS IS BLASHEMY

    • Hello Tracie Love,

      Thank you for you reply. I agree 100% with you. Blasphemy of the worst kind! Notice that I wrote the transcriptions. Jared Leto & Crowed. I had to watch it several times to copy word by word…

  7. Anyone else notice that the artists only wore either black or white? Some had a splash of red but no one wore any other color and it was obvious. The only exception to this rule was Macklemore and Lewis- maybe because they are independent of a label, but rewatch this and notice everyone’s clothing color choices. odd

    • Yeah I noticed that too and Birdman had on a sweater with the eye symbols all over the entire sweater.The whole show freaked me out.

    • Well my brother, there is nothing that we can to about it because we are human, we cannot fight the supernatural, it takes a supernatural to fight a supernatural, the only person that can do something about it is the Lord Jesus Christ, all these so called FALLING STARS the so called HOLLYBOOD will soon become burnt wood and face the oncomming judgements of almighty God, now have your fun and you will see, and to use such a degrading language such as that, tells me the type of person that you are …. cannot be a child of God can only be a follower of satan and if you dont watch your mouth God will bring you to justice for such a degraging foul language ……..

  12. The symbolism is there for a reason. There’re showing us that the lucifer and his demons are in control. You can say you don’t believe in symbolism or lucifer but that doesn’t stop them from believing. Our culture is tainted and our souls are at war. You can’t do anything about it. You can’t change it. It’s written in stone that this would happen and that it will continue to happen. The gift of God is just that a gift. If you don’t see it you don’t have the gift yet. If you do see it preach against it even if your condemed and crusified. Christ is the real king and his promiss of salvation is the only thing that matters+ God bless

  14. You forgot one very important sign. In Kanye West performance, he danced so weirdly and at first, he had only one side of the face seen and when the dancing part game, he did the hornes like Rihanna in “Umbrella”. Here is the pic:

  15. You mentioned Neil Armstrong. While watching the show last night, I thought it was odd that the gigantic moommen in the room were dead. They had the “X” covering their eyes. It also appeared that the moomman head was actually a skull and crossbones. I wasn’t really sure why the dead moonmen, but maybe it was for Neil. And maybe Neil was Skull and Bones? Thanks for the blog.

    • Mojo,
      The artist who made the new moon man name is Kaws and the x on the eyes is his trademark. Either way Leto broke my heart too.

  16. For the dumbass who said Jared Leto said, “Here is Jesus himself.” He said, yeezus. Not Jesus. And in the song, “I am a God,” he says that God is the most high.

    • Hello Jack!,

      I am the dumb-ass who wrote what Jared Leto said. What´s the difference between Jesus & “yeezus”? Please do not get upset, I am not here to stress you out with my “dumb-ass” reflexions or thoughts. Also I think when these entities, beings or whatever you want to call them talk about “god” they do not mean Elohim or Jesus, they are actually addressing lucifer…..


      Post a Reply
  17. It may be his trademark but I think it might also be an international symbol representing “dead”.
    Also, the actual VMA 2013 logo is half of the skull and bones moomman head. It’s all over the place. I suppose that’s one eye looking at us. A lot of guests took pics on the red carpet in front of it, but a quick google search only shows Taylor Swift and Selena actually in front of it. The easy one to find with Taylor, you can see the “X” just behind her.

  20. I never actually watch any kind of blown out preformances that are on tv anymore, I’ve done plenty of research and veiwed many different opinions, at this point, watching these “Stars” on these annual award shows make me feel like its ritualistic and brainwashing, concerts as well. Knowing that this tv special was streaming into millions of homes and the sybolism shown is pretty scary. Subliminal or not, i feel deep sadness for those who are not aware of this demonic crap.

  21. the skull and bones design is a design by a designer named KAWS … he has done many collabs with BAPE wich pharrell is known for wearing and he launched is bbc label through wich also uses a seperate moon man symbol …. and as for the katy perry performance that had mkultra kitten programing written all over it. the ads for her performance showed her and others all in tiger striped clothes and a real tiger walking through brooklyn. and when she performed she was also wearing tiger print clothes as well,

  26. I saw a video back in 2003 by a singer called Cat Power of a song called He War. Now I loved the song and still do but back then I caught her do something with her hands I thought was quite odd. This was of course way before the Illuminati conspiracy started so I had no clue as to what it might have been and just dismissed it. Well recently I saw this same video and saw this same hand gesture that so many artist are doing now. Now I am not saying I believe in this Illuminati stuff but the moment she made the gesture with BOTH HANDS did not seem accidental but rather an intentional signal of some sort. I have attached the video below and this gesture is seen at the 1:48 mark of the video.
