The Vigilant Citizen: A site for “hidden symbols in mainstream media” fans
Okay so I was browsing a couple of forums and one particular thread spiked my interest when it discussed something about how the Hollywood music industry is, for some reason, making songs and videos that are full of symbols. Some even as far as near “Satanic”.
Here’s the original thread. It’s in Filipino so pardon if you can’t understand.
Anyway, here’s one of the really interesting ones. It talks about Lady Gaga’s latest video “Bad Romance”. Although I have already known that creative videos like this are full of symbols, I never considered it to be Satanic in nature. As the owner of the website states:
Right away, it is obvious that the love that Gaga is seeking is wrong and sick. She’s a sex slave and apparently, she likes it. She knows that the industry is ugly but she still wants in. There is an obvious sense of sadomasochism, as she seems to know that this love (of success in the music industry) will hurt her and treat her badly, but she’s up for it. As we will examine in the video, there is also a spiritual meaning to the lyrics where fame equals submitting to the dark, satanic side of the music industry. In other words, the song is also about submitting to evil and the imagery of the video corroborates this fact.
Call me gullible, but I also have my own interpretations of the video as to it being very dark yet upon reading the article, I found out that there are a lot of things I missed. Specially the things about how she depicts the devil in some of her shots like this one:
See how she resembles the devil depicted on the right picture? Even I found this astonishing.
So to speak, there are a lot of things found in the website. This article is just one of them. If you want something to read to start your interest, check the articles about Paramore’s Brick by Boring Brick analysis and how it is related to mind control or the Black Eyed Peas’ Meet Me Halfway meaning.
Very interesting if I say so myself.
