This will be the fourth coverage I’ve posted about this song. First, we had the original Die Young video, then we had an X-Factor performance, then the 2nd version of the video, and now the American Music Awards. Ke$ha sticks with themes of demons, sacrifice and Illuminati symbolism. Just another wholesome family night of music for everybody on the ABC!
The event in discussion here starts when Cyndi Lauper brings Ke$ha out. Lauper is wearing the colors of Saturn worship; black and red:
Ke$ha was wearing red and black in her 2nd video for Die Young (the one with all of the satanic symbolism in it):
Then throughout her performance we’ve got the typical stuff we’ve seen in the other Ke$ha versions of this song. The occultish behavior, triangle/pyramids, all seeing eyes watching us, etc. Here she resembles Eliphas Levi’s Baphomet with the two-finger positions, meant to emphasize the entire concept of the Baphomet with its duality and polarities of the world (e.g. moon and sun, male and female, etc):
The all seeing eye is watching Ke$ha too:
And finally it looks like she’s got three scratches across her face; akin to demonic attacks (mocking the trinity):
Here’s the actual video of the performance:
