Illuminati Symbolism by Popular Music Artists

Beyonce performs in front of the most well-known Illuminati symbol of all time.

As most of you know, this particular page of Common Sense Conspiracy is dedicated to those times when we come across a conspiracy theory where we just have to admit that somebody’s got a little too much time on their hands.  Normally, our function is to not burden users wanting the real dirt with crazy, half-baked, fact-less theories, but every once in a while there comes along one that is so bombastic that it bears sharing for the pure enjoyment of the absurdity of it.  Recently, it came to our attention that there is a flurry of activity on the web about the idea that popular recording artists are closet Illuminati members and that they often reveal this “fact” through hand gestures at public events or in symbolism in their music videos.

The targets go on and on.  Beyonce.  Eminem.  Jay-Z.  Lady Gaga.  Kanye West.  Lil Wayne.  Taylor Swift.  Yeah, that’s right.  Taylor Swift.  Even Justin Bieber has now been identified

as one of the Illuminati henchmen.  The concept is simple, really.  These artists are very influential, especially among young, impressionable minds.  They live a glamorous lifestyle that many young people chase after wanting to look beautiful and wear the latest fashions.  Their lyrics, videos, and live performances rack up millions of views.  As a matter of fact, Justin Bieber just passed a significant milestone by becoming the first music video (or any video for that matter) to coast past the billion-view mark on YouTube.  So, yes, there is a powerful reach that these young men and women have at their disposal.  So, what of the Illuminati connection?

An Illuminati power struggle!

Most of the so-called “evidence” surrounding this comes from photographs and live appearances or performances.  Beyonce is accused of foretelling the New World Order with subliminal messages that can only be uncovered if played backwards.  She supposedly references the Mayan belief that we are about to cross into the age of Aquarius, one that should bring the world new enlightenment.  Jay-Z and Beyonce (who are husband and wife, incidentally) are both shown on YouTube videos making Illuminati hand gestures during public appearances.  Eminem is accused of being possessed by a demon while on stage.  Kanye West is accused of symbolism and has long been a target of this conspiracy theory.  Lil Wayne?  Ditto.  And as for Taylor Swift?  Apparently Taylor Swift has a habit of making “The Sign of the Horns” often during performances.

The Sign of the Horns. See, you don’t have to be a pop music icon to do it. Anyone can.

So maybe you can suspend your disbelief temporarily and give this thing a chance.  That’s what Common Sense Conspiracy normally does for you, and usually we don’t expose you to bullshit like this.  But this particular one is so prevalent, so debated, and so absurd that it just begs for your attention.  So, let’s assume for a moment that there is some truth to any of this.

Conclusive proof for sure!

Beyonce puts subliminal messages that can be uncovered if played backwards.  Hmm… What is more likely here?  That the Illuminati put her up to this to help brainwash young people to more willingly accept the New World Order which will soon be at hand (something we normally agree with, by the way)?  Or could it be that she inserted cryptic backwards messages into her music as a sort of tribute to some of her heroes?  Beyonce is a huge fan of Prince, who has used the same tactic on records for over thirty years.  Incidentally, Prince has never been accused of being an Illuminati spokesman.  On dark, seedy track “Darlin’ Nikki” of Purple Rain fame, Prince inserted a backwards message that said “The Lord is coming soon” over and over again for several seconds.  The Beatles made use of this as well.  No doubt there are countless other examples.  So, is there not at least a chance that Beyonce is just emulating her heroes?  Or stoking a good conversation?  Remember, controversy is a popular music artist’s best friend.

Jay-Z is a rap mogul, one of the most powerful men in his business.  The rap scene often glorifies riches as in material wealth, and Jay-Z sometimes uses Illuminati-like symbolism in videos.  So, he is clearly an Illuminati member, right?  Hmm… Or could it be that he likes to purport himself as a powerful, influential figure, and he capitalizes on the Illuminati mystique when he presents this to the public?  Maybe Jay-Z simply likes to create this identity for himself because it represents power and enlightenment, two things he both wants and possesses.

And Taylor Swift…  The only thing these sites have to try to tie Taylor Swift into the Illuminati is “The Sign of the Horns” she likes to make during performances.  Let’s see.  Is it possible that the country music icon of nursery-rhyme lyrics and simple melodies is spreading an Illuminati message of the coming age of enlightenment?  Sure.  But is it more likely that she simply is repeating a rock and roll hand gesture that she probably thinks is cool and what she is supposed to do?  She grew up in a time of rock and roll excess with bands like Poison, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, and Guns N Roses.  The horn sign is synonymous with heavy metal music as well.  Now, Taylor Swift’s music falls a little short of this rock and roll attitude, but she is obviously a fan of it and wants to be like it.  Hence, the hand signs.  A sign of power.  A sign of influence.

We post this video not because we want you to give up fifteen minutes of your life… simply spend a couple of minutes enjoying the pure absurdity of it and then move on.  And always remember…

Sometimes it is what it is.

P.S.  As for Lady Gaga… that is some serious Illuminati shit.  You heard it here first.

    BUSTED!! I can’t believe you’re on to Taylor Swift’s Iluminati connections. Now, I live in terror that I’ll be caught
    listening to Miss Swift’s poetic offerings played backwards.

    Most likely they just equate the symbolism with power and throw it in themselves because they think it makes them cooler. Or maybe the Illuminati people show up and tell them to do it…who knows…

    I dont think something like illumanti exists ……but maybe it does but why only the music industry they could have attacked the flim industry..and on top of that the so calked horn sign is not at all related to illumanati its just a sign right….????? And the illumanati exixting means there are angels and deamons and heaven an hell right ….this is crazy …!!! No one seriously claims illumanaty exists because no one has a serious proof and the musicians just give us gestures and signs …maybe just to gain atention and raise popularity …o_O
