The Meaning of The Weeknd’s “The Hills” and “Can’t Feel My Face”

183

The Weeknd’s videos “The Hills”, “Can’t Feel My Face” and “Tell Your Friends” form a trilogy that tells a disturbing story. Through symbolism, the videos describe a dark and occult path to fame.


The Weeknd is a Canadian R&B singer who has enjoyed a steady rise in popularity in the past few years. However in 2015, his career truly took off with a hit album, a number one single, music awards appearances and even tabloid action (with his 18 year-old girlfriend Bella Haddid). As if narrating his meteoric rise to fame, the videos released for his album “Beauty Behind the Madness”, depict The Weeknd’s rise to fame in a rather dark fashion: It is indeed represented as the result of a deal with the devil himself.

Although the videos The Hills, Can’t Feel My Face and Tell Your Friends are quite simple and not exactly “action-packed”, the action that actually takes place is highly significant. The videos are also connected through the recurrent appearance of a shady character with supernatural powers who appears to be following The Weeknd around and who happens to share attributes with the biblical “devil”. Do the videos tell the story of man selling his soul to the devil for success in the music industry? Let’s look at the meaning of The Weeknd’s videos.

The Hills

The Hills is the first video released of the trilogy. It begins with a shot of a car that is upside down. A wounded The Weeknd emerges from it.

Two girls then get out of the car and start pushing The Weeknd around, as if they are blaming him for what happened. However, the singer seems unfazed. He keeps steadily walking towards a house, as if he is magnetically, or magically, attracted to it. The car behind him then explodes.

The Weeknd sings as the car explodes. Never look back when something explodes : Its the coolest thing you could do.

The Weeknd then enters a creepy house and starts looking around.

Before climbing up the stairs, The Weeknd goes through a room that is very white, which symbolically represents purity and innocence before initiation.

The Weeknd then climbs some stairs – very slowly – as if emphasizing the “ascending” nature of initiation. He then enters a room that is very, very red (the symbolic color of initiation and sacrifice).

Inside the red room is a shady character holding an apple and the two girls from the car.
Inside the red room is a shady character holding an apple and the two girls from the car.

The strange looking person is holding an apple. This most likely refers to the proverbial snake in the Book of Genesis who pushes Adam and Eve to bite the forbidden apple. While the snake is usually associated with the devil who convinced humans to disobey God, the occult elite considers the snake to be Lucifer, the light-bearer, who gave humans the gift of knowledge.

The two girls laying on the bed are the same two girls who were in the car with The Weeknd. How did they arrive there so fast … and when did they have time to change? The viewers are meant to understand that there is something supernatural going on here and that perhaps these girls were sent by the shady character to cause the accident and lead The Weeknd to that room.

Then the video ends. At this point, one might understandably wonder what this video has to do with the song, which is about The Weeknd telling a girl from “the hills” (who is cheating on her husband with The Weeknd) that he doesn’t really care about her, among other things.

As it is the case with most videos with a ritualistic undertone, the true story of the video is in the details. First, the title of the song, “The Hills”, is often a reference to upper-scale neighborhoods, the most famous one being the Hollywood Hills. In one line of the song, The Weeknd refers to rolling into a “gated residential” to meet the girl. The song and video both convey a sense of moral corruption in “high society” (as he’s singing to a girl that is committing adultery).

When The Weeknd enters the house, we hear him singing:

The Hills have eyes, the hills have eyes

This can refer to people in closed communities knowing about each others’ lives and gossiping their afternoons away. However, in the context of the video, it can also refer to the elite monitoring their people, especially newcomers, such as The Weeknd.

The video bears a resemblance to the beginning of the movie Mulholland Drive, which also begins with a car accident in Los Angeles, and a wounded and confused actress walking towards civilization (the entire movie is one big, enigmatic look at the dark side of Hollywood).

In short, the video is about The Weeknd reaching “the hills” or, in more accurately, the occult elite. And, if you are not part of the privileged bloodline, you need to take an oath and bite the proverbial apple. Conveniently, the next video of the series describes what happens when you are initiated.

Can’t Feel My Face

Can’t Feel My Face is probably the hit single that lead The Weeknd to worldwide fame. Interestingly enough, the video is exactly about him becoming a big music star … with the help of the devil.

The video begins with The Weeknd singing his little song in a club, doing his little dance moves.

The reaction from people in the club ranges from intense indifference to annoyed boredom.

This woman is like "OMG make that crappy music stop PLZ"
This woman is like “OMG make him stop PLZ, my head hurts.”

Then, the devil  (the same shady looking character we saw in the first video) comes to see The Weeknd perform. He sees that people are not enjoying The Weeknd’s music, but he has the power to make all of that change.

As easily as he can light up a cigarette, the devil can light up The Weeknd's career.

The devil then throws his lighter at The Weeknd, who literally catches fire.

The Weeknd catches fire and immediately starts busting even cooler dance moves than he was doing before.
Immediately after, everybody in the club gets up on their feet and start dancing.
Immediately after, everybody in the club gets up on their feet and start dancing.

This surreal series of events describes rather aptly how the entertainment industry works. At first, you work hard, but you get no recognition. Then, if you’re chosen by the elite, they set you on fire, meaning that they get you working with the right people and put you in the spotlight. Immediately after, the masses follow suit and start dancing to the hit that is playing on the radio. Notice that, in the video when people got on their feet, the song didn’t change. It is the same song they were hating seconds ago. Why do they love it now? Because, by catching on fire, The Weeknd became a elite-sanctioned star and a celebrity – and that is what truly turns people on (well, the people who are subject to mass culture,anyway).

While the song appears to be about a foul relationship, it doesn’t take much of an in-depth analysis to understand that it is mainly about a drug, probably cocaine, which is known to numb one’s face.

And I know she’ll be the death of me, at least we’ll both be numb
And she’ll always get the best of me, the worst is yet to come
But at least we’ll both be beautiful and stay forever young
This I know, yeah, this I know

However, in the context of the video, the foul relationship described by The Weeknd might be about the music industry.

The single cover of Can't Feel my Face features The Weeknd's face cut in several fragments. Industry slaves get their persona split through MK programming. Maybe that is why he cannot feel his face.

Being on fire might be good for The Weeknd’s career, but there is one attribute we need to remember about fire: It consumes what it burns. By representing The Weeknd’s career blowing up as him catching fire, the video also represents the ephemeral and destructive nature of fame. In short, it is a sacrifice.

The subject of the video becomes even more significant when we take into account the clear Michael Jackson influence of the song. Indeed, the vocals of Can’t Feel My Face (and even The Weeknd’s dance moves) are a blatant “homage” to Michael Jackson who is, not-so-coincidentally, the ultimate example of a pop star being fatally burned by the industry. Is the video showing The Weeknd following his footsteps?

At the end of the video, we see The Weeknd walking off stage and outside of the club ... and he is still on fire. Unfortunately, the fire ignited by the devil does not only burn on stage, it burns all the time and forever.
At the end of the video, we see The Weeknd walking off stage and outside of the club … and he is still on fire. Unfortunately, the fire ignited by the devil does not only burn on stage, it burns all the time. In other words, being in the industry takes up your entire life.

The video ends with The Weeknd still on fire and looking somewhat concerned about what is happening.

Tell Your Friends

The third video of the series begins with the same element with which the second one ended: Fire.

Tell Your Friends begins with a shot of a burning bush.
Tell Your Friends begins with a shot of a burning bush.

Not unlike the devil holding an apple in the first video, the viewers are treated again with biblical imagery. In Exodus 3, Moses encounters a bush that is on fire but that is not consumed by the flames. By approaching the burning bush, Moses ends up in a discussion with God.

In the video however, The Weeknd passes by the bush, but does not engage in any kind of conversation. Is he symbolically turning his back on god? Has he become a god himself?

We then see The Weeknd burying himself in the ground.

The Weeknd burrying The Weeknd in the ground.
The Weeknd buries his old self in the ground. He is a new person.

A rather creepy detail of that scene is that it version of The Weeknd that is wrapped in plastic and being buried is the one that is singing the song. We see his lips moving through the plastic.

Once he's done shovelling, The Weeknd litterally dances on his on grave.
Once he’s done shoveling, The Weeknd dances on his own grave.

The singer then encounters a familiar figure.

The devil walks towards him but seem somewhat irritated.
The shady character/devil walks towards him and appears somewhat irritated.

The Weeknd does not feel like having a discussion with the devil either.

The Weeknd takes out a gun and shoots the devil.
The Weeknd takes out a gun and shoots the devil two times. Notice the hills behind him.

He then walks away towards a brand new car that is waiting for him.

The Weeknd enters a black car and rolls towards ... the hills?
The Weeknd gets in a black car and rolls away … towards the hills.

So … What’s the Story?

If we follow the chronological order in which these three videos were released, we understand that The Weeknd encountered the devil who offered him a deal he didn’t refuse (represented by the apple). The devil then lit up the singer’s career and made him a big star, with legions of fans (represented by the people at the club). However, in the third video, The Weeknd appears to have realized that the deal with the devil was a bad one. He therefore buried alive the part of him that sang hit songs (the corpse was singing while being buried). He then killed the devil and drove away in a brand new car. The Weeknd is therefore free, alive and happy. Right? Maybe not. After all, The Weeknd is deep in the music business and all of its trappings.

A few visual clues might indicate that the order these videos were released might not be the order in which they should be viewed. Indeed, Tell Your Friends ends with The Weeknd driving away in a black car (towards the hills) and The Hills begins with a black car (although it is not the exact same car) upside down. Therefore, if we follow these visual clues, the order in which the videos should be viewed is as follows: Can’t Feel My Face (which ends with fire), Tell Your Friends (which begins with fire and ends with a black car) and “The Hills” (which begins with a black car).

By following this order, the story of the videos become much darker.

The story begins with a struggling The Weeknd trying to get people to notice him at gigs. The devil then lights him on fire and kick-starts his career. The Weeknd then realizes that the deal is awful so he buries this new singing creation and shoots the devil. However, the devil is not human and therefore cannot be killed. Furthermore, he is rather vengeful. Although The Weeknd believes he is alive and free, he finds himself in a car accident that nearly kills him. As he walks into the red room, he realizes that he cannot escape the devil. The devil holds an apple reminding him that the deal is non-voidable. The two ladies that were with The Weeknd were actually the devil’s minions and the near-fatal accident was actually a warning: Any further transgressions will result in death.

Although the devil brought him fame and success, The Weeknd is stuck in a loop where any attempts to break free lead him right back to the devil and his apple.

In Conclusion

The Weeknd’s video trilogy uses simple yet powerful symbolism to tell a story the singer probably identifies with. It is the classic and timeless Faustian tale where fame and success come at a great price, an eternal and spiritual price. When viewed in the order they were released, the videos appear to be showing The Weeknd emerging victorious from his encounter with the devil. However, if we look at what is currently happening in The Weeknd’s career, he is just entering the great circus that is the entertainment industry.

Re-arranging the videos according to the visual clues placed at the beginning and the end of the videos, shows The Weeknd attempting to free himself, but finding himself forced to deal with the devil and accept his fate. It is the devil who has emerged victorious while a wounded The Weeknd realizes that you cannot simply kill something that is not even human.

This series of videos therefore represent The Weeknd’s initiation into the industry … an industry that loves to brag about how it controls its subjects. Let’s see where his career will lead him. Remember, however, unlike the burning bush, human flesh cannot stay on fire for long. Just ask Michael Jackson.

Oh, wait, you can’t.

I stumbled across this website an hour ago. Since then, I've managed to read a few of VC's articles.
You, sir, are a genius. And this piece has got to be the best one yet.
Mind = Blown

Couple of thoughts: 1). All of mankind is BORN spiritually blind, as a result of disobedience to God (sin), which separates us from His Light, and His Truth; for how can good intermingle with evil, or darkness with the light, or truth with falsehoods? They are diametric opposites and it's an "either-or" equation. God literally IS Good: He IS Truth, and He IS Light, they are not just adjectives that describe His characteristics – they are HIS ATTRIBUTES. Apart from God, there literally is NO TRUTH, NO GOOD and NO LIGHT. Since without Light there is only darkness (no in-between), and without Truth, there are only lies and confusion, it's easier to understand how people who are apart from God (unsaved & spiritually blind) don't see that which may seem obvious to those who have been born again (saved) and now see the world through new eyes of Light and… Read more »

I may come off as completely naive in asking this, but do you think the artists are completely aware of the symbols in their videos? Aren' the video's produced by the music industry and not the artist themselves?

50/50 it means that they know that they are getting into the freemason luciferian music industry and they have to promote THE ELITE BELIEFS! but at the same time these artists doesn’t know the real meaning of what they are promoting they are just paid to be industry puppets and control the mass people.

Maybe they wants to trick him into a deal with devil?

I wonder too. Frankly I think the song “Can’t feel my face”, is a bit ambiguous to listen to anyway and rather funny sounding. I think that we can make a lot or nothing out of it. I think that if we have real conversations with our youth about choices and consequences, these songs will merely bolster the idea that if you make bad choices, bad consequences will follow. It’s a catchy song, unlike the other’s of his I’ve heard. My kids will probably never listen to most of his other songs, so whatever. Besides I can always pawn the song off to a visit with the dentist if I don’t want to get too deep. Anyway, it’s a pop song. Here today, gone tomorrow. Why the fuss?

One huge thing you missed:
In the hills video before he walks in the “red room” with the devil; he walks through a white room with a flickering light. Under the flickering light in none other than the plastic bag that he used to bury “himself” with in the Tell Your Friends video. Further proof is the dirt that is all over the bag, and the bag is cut open, as if the devils way of saying, you’re not getting out of this so easy.

It's weird because I know the guy who directed the hills video. I know him pretty well actually. Or at least I thought I did. We've had conversations about this kind of symbolism etc. I'm wondering if there is a hand that is guiding the creative portion of these videos or something but as far as I know he directs these videos and most of the subject matter is his ideas (or ideas he stole from more famous influential artists) but not others telling him what to do. I'm really confused. I wonder, if I was able to talk to him about this, what would you guys at vigilant citizen want me to ask (in a getting real type conversation)?

ask him if there is some people guiding him to produce these videos? or he is putting some specefic meaning to fit in?

Open letter Written by the weeknd "To my fans I want to thank you for listening and being patient for as long as you have. No matter what an artist's ego clouds them to believe, you are the reason why I have been able to continue to do what I love to do and that is to entertain you. My journey for inspiration may seem like masochism to others who have not been given the task to make art, but best believe it brings me nothing but joy Because I am a man of few words, I chose to make a viral video to show you how I felt and where I stand. I usually don't like to "spoon feed" my audience because I grew up idolizing story tellers who tell stories using symbolism, so it was in my nature to do the same. The Rolling Stone video takes place… Read more »

is this real from the weeknd?

Seems over thought out. It could be a simpler story. The weeknd has said that he came from a very rough background, and life had been really tough on the way to where he is now, that could be the story he's telling through the videos. The crash in the beginning of the hills could be the disaster of his past and the hardships he'd gone through. Then he made a deal with the metaphorical devil to help his career. In can't feel my ace it shows his struggle and how the 'devil' solved that, but also showed the negative effect of the fame (in this case flame) then the last video shows him getting rid of the person he had turned into just for fame and shooting the devil and driving towards the hills. Almost as if to say he'd rather go back through the hardship then stay in… Read more »
Dear VC, once again, you've outshined yourself. When I first heard the "Can't Feel My Face" song, I was repulsed. I feel that this sick song alluded to and paid homage to cocaine—a drug that kills, steals, and destroys people and their families daily. Then I happened across the video at the point when he's on fire. That was horrific!—like PTSD inducing. Hell is for real, and it's real permanent. Not even my birth mother, who inflicted me with life-long child abuse deserves the hell fire. I will always believe that every soul God created deserves one more chance to get it right (however long it takes). It is so sad that this evil song/video will sway the idiotic idiots. They will perish along with this guy. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. This is serious!!! I imagine that in hell, this guy will say," Hey ya'll, don't… Read more »
Random thought….. What if who you call the "Illuminati" wrote the bible? Then what? All of your ideas of what is good and what is evil is based upon the assumption of the bible as truth. What if everyone has been lied to and the bible is the book that keeps people 1.) Slaving away 2.) Remaining complacent….. It seems to me that the writers of the bible worked closely with the inventors of government. You can easily control people by controlling their beliefs. What if all of this is deliberate and there is a truth so dark that no one is willing to reveal it and it is even protected by secret societies? The bible's compilation was a highly political event…one could say that divine influence impacted it heavily, but a Catholic believer would say that their bible is sacrosanct…their bible has more books than the KJV…does that make… Read more »

“It seems to me that the writers of the bible worked closely with the inventors of government” . Sorry to disappoint you but there’s no such thing as” inventors of government”. Government(if you wish to call it that is a prerequisite for order and development as far as humans are concerned. It’s present in every culture ancient and modern.

I could tell right away the first time I heard "Can't Feel My Face' that it was about drug addiction, and thought what a "cool" song this is for the kids to be singing along to… being physically numbed, wholly dependent and eventually dying due to hard drug use and "loving it" he croons. Ugh.

Then this article though, dang! Pretty good representation of everything VC always says of what the industry wants and does. It's all right there.

For Weeknd and every other human, the only way out of the matrix is Jesus Christ.

After reading through this, it is interesting to see the various views in which things can be seen. I don't believe the order is incorrect but yet made to play in loop. When in the music industry you will come across many that are out for only themselves and attempt to manage you in a direction you many not necessarily want to go. "I cant feel my face when i'm with you" is a line indicating he cant feel himself. His face is an image not his own. When is is concerned about it "She told me don't worry about it, she told me don't worry no more". In the Hills he stars in a car crash (a wall in his career), after suffering a journey he arrives at an offering/deal/contract in a red room presented by a manager/devil. After accepting the offer he gets his career set a light.… Read more »

On the other hand it could be a journey to do with drugs and getting over its hold on him. Blue gloves are not something to would put on with that dress (at least i would not think so). she could have them one due to her handling product. She cares more about the car going up when confronting 'The Weeknd' and this may be due to product being in there and later confronting the dealer. Cant feel my face is about him feeling like he cant perform unless under the control of the product and finally in the tell your friends he is getting rid of his addiction.

Excellent analysis, as usual VC. This makes me wonder: Why do the Satanic Elite have to push this same agenda of 'selling your soul to the devil' over and over again on the unsuspecting public? Why is it so in your face now-a-days? You'd think they would try to hide it. What exactly does revealing this to the public "do" to us? It MUST do something otherwise they wouldn't waste their time making these horrendous videos, right? Does it make more people want to sell their souls to the devil? Is it all about unconscious subliminal programming on the public's psyche??? Are we being brainwashed to think that we (mere humans) can make deals with the devil and then escape the consequences unscathed??? I'm not sure…I honestly think the average person won't 'get' the video's message so again, why would the elite go to the trouble of making illuminati BS… Read more »

It's called mind control on a subconscious level. Why do you think these artists are so pushed upon the youth via radio, reality TV, magazines and award shows? They are the targeted audience because their minds are not fully developed and they are the easiest to manipulate. Over time they see these images as normal and will manifest them into their lives one way or another. Just look at how pop culture has declined in the last ten or so years and how it has affected this younger generation. Being a wh0re or dressing near naked is celebrated and rewarded. They want the decay of society as we know it.

Exactly.

Yeeeahh ghost, absolutely bang on man. The images in these magazines, music videos, etc. set an anchor in the brain, then just like you said it manifests into their lives one way or another….& yes they want the decay of society (which I'm afraid to say is going to get worse), but the real question is WHY do the want that decay (?)

A corrupt society is easier to control than an enlightened one. That is why they kill off anybody that speaks out truth and inspires people, like Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X.

Saint George and all Saints were murdered for this reason. They were inspiring people and made them better.

Easiest explanation is they are hacking the human mind for exploitation to control the masses.

People who dismiss such a perspective need only look at history. Few want to be on the bottom, better to be the controlleers than controlled, predator vs. prey. Unless the Spirit of God is your truth, then this pursuit is pointless. God bless all.

I think the reason is to get more recruits to buy into their agenda. The best way to manipulate people is through repetition. So if they(the elite) make "selling your soul" look sexy", then the impressionable youth will think it's normal to "sell" your soul for fame. This old generation is fading out so who better than that the youth to mold into exactly what they want. The youth won't rebel because this "new" system is all they know.

That's why platforms like these are so key and important to educate and liberate people about what is really going on.
Parents "sell" their kids, e.g Kris Jenner sold her whole family to the industry just for fame. And that evil show keeps feeding the people that this kind of life style is all there is to be.

So sad but so True.

I think the reason they do it, is to desensitise us. I dont know if you noticed the black eyes in music videos (Ellie Gouldings and the guy that dated the idols winner) in my mind only demons have black eyes, so i dont know if its full on possesion on camera.

It's also part of their 'religion' if you will – to show you what they're doing. Part of the laws of the universe is that violating freewill is a no no, but this way they get around it.

That's deep and so true. Never thought about that. PS: love that movie, "They Live." OBEY!!! lol

Satan wants all of our souls of course he wants the "deal with the devil" to come off as cool & popular like "hey everyone is doing it"

In Side 2 Side by Ariana Grande ft. Nicki Minaj, it says “I’m making deals with the devil.

At this point there are so many people that live Godless lives, i personally feel they dont feel the need to hide. Once that fundamental rule is removed about how He governs our lives is gone, any and everything is free to take charge. They arent hiding because they don't have to.

I think unlike other artist who become aware of what they got themselves into later on in their career I think he is apart of the few who knows exactly what he is doing form the beginning. I will admit I like his music you can clearly hear it in the lyrics that he knows what he has signed up for…

I just came across the site last night and have only read a few articles. I would really like to see what you would have to say about Eminem if you haven’t touched on him already. He is one of the only artist that I know of that actually talks about this deal with the devil in his songs and about his battle against it. I think it was the song I’m not afraid ( if that’s not it it was around the same time frame) where he was literally having a conversation with the devil and the devil was trying to get him to come back telling Eminem he’s nothing without him and Eminem was pretty much telling him go screw yourself I’m done Ill trade all this in you need me more than I need you. The whole song was him taking a stand with the devil. Eminem… Read more »

just more and more blatant

At min 2,40, there's a strange shadow coming out from the car going toward the girl, and then disappears. I don't know what it could signify, but it makes the video much creepier.

The Weekend is the modern-day Robert Johnson. Robert “sold his soul to The Devil” in order to invent the blues. Weekend “sold his soul to The Devil” just to be another Michael Jackson wannabe/clone.

Love this. Totally agree with the reorder. In fact, if you watch them in chronological order & then rewatch The Hills, you will have seen it both ways. In true occult fashion the first one is really the last one. I also think he died (was sacrificed) in the car accident. Red room is Hell.

I'm glad to see someone mentioned this, I thought the very same thing.
He didn't live up to his end of the bargain, so he paid the ultimate price.. The girls "changed" so quickly because they were, as assumed in the article, to be 'minions'. Or because they had all perished in the "accident"

And now when you look at his 3rd video Starboy it’s all crystal clear. The selling the soul to the devil, killing his former self. Glowing red cross aka lucifer has infiltrated. Destroys everything he previously owned and is now driving around in probably the most expensive car in the world. Combined that with lyrics about boasting nothing is on lease. The selling of his soul to the devil (occult) allowed him to skyrocket his career.

It makes me wonder though, just how many hints does the occult need to drop in front of you to realize what’s going on? Everything is a stage, all of it. It is so blatantly obvious, it’s just a wonder now how people can’t see what’s going on.

So I have seen how many people reacted for this video and I got so upset. Man if you are a real christian you don’t bring all imaginary talk. As a fan of The Weeknd and Fellow Ethiopian let me tell you what you missed. Abel better known as The Weeknd had a rough upbringing, never met his dad and grown up with mom and grand mother. At age 17 he quits school after failing many times and convinces his best friend Lamar to do the same thing. Then left his mom house on the weekend so his gave himself the name The Weeknd. The he started music recording with his friends in 2011. His first mix tape, Trilogy got popular but hide himself from any camera and until for a year no one knows him and he explained he was very shy. At that time he has been homeless… Read more »

He wears a cross? He gave money to a church? Must be a Christian eh? No, not at all.

A true, born again Christian wouldn’t drop f-bombs in his songs, brag about all of his material possessions, sexually immoral relationships, and drug use. If he did these things before being saved, he would be ashamed of them now, not glorifying them to the masses. He probably wouldn’t even agree to “fake” kill people in his videos, because the Holy Spirit makes us sensitive even to these “pretend” sins. Most likely, the reason you don’t realize any of this is because you yourself aren’t a born again believer by faith in Jesus Christ indwelt by the Spirit of God. Salvation is by faith in Jesus Christ, not baptism, not church membership, not tradition keeping.

A look at Rick Wilder's Facebook page is very telling. Apart from the horrid images, he seems to be a Crowley follower, amongst other things.

Yeah Reeces, I had a look and gathered that also…Pics were creepy as f.u.c.k. :-/

You make a number of statements; "It is indeed represented as the result of a deal with the devil himself." "Interestingly enough, the video is exactly about him becoming a big music star … with the help of the devil." "Industry slaves get their persona split through MK programming." "Michael Jackson who is, not-so-coincidentally, the ultimate example of a pop star being fatally burned by the industry" You have offered no proof of the existence of a supernatural being that can facilitate fame by "selling your soul" I have never seen any proof of any kind of pop stars being routinely tortured and brain washed into the slaves you are so keen on talking about. There is no proof anywhere that Mr Jackson was murdered or abused to the point of suicide. I'm not talking about recurring themes in pop videos; hard evidence is required for exceptional claims such as… Read more »

@satan.You chose the name satan,so whatever you have to say is a lie.You admire the father of lies(satan/devil).

Create your own path of research, don't make people hold your hand in comments section, just look around you at the basic levels of self destruction they go through on TV and go from there. Naming yourself after Satan isn't offensive or anything, it's just not creative and very one-dimensional. It's like a Microwave Oven wrote the comment

When I saw the cover for Can't Feel My Face I thought of porcelain-face programming from the Fritz Springmeier book.

The cover really disturbed me when I saw it. I had a feeling an article from VC would be next. Really as soon as he did a collab with Lana Del Rey I knew he was in deep.

Good call!

This is an amazing article and really makes you think. I stumbled across this by accident and I’m glad I did. Great analysis btw.
