Britney Spears, Mind Control and “Hold it Against Me”



Britney Spears is a pop icon who simultaneously embodies the glamour of stardom and the destructive side of fame. She has reached the heights of super-stardom and the lows of tabloid humiliation. Her erratic behavior led to numerous questions regarding her mental stability, but most are unaware of the most important fact: She is a product of Illuminati mind control. In fact, the video for “Hold it Against Me” symbolically portrays the manipulation and mind control she goes through. This article will look at significant events in Britney Spears’ life and at the hidden meaning of the video “Hold it Against Me”.


Britney Spears is the prototype of the modern pop star: young, beautiful, controversial and completely manipulated by the entertainment industry. She has been literally groomed since childhood by industry execs to become a pop star. From working in Broadway at 8 years old and the Mickey Mouse Club at 12 to becoming a world-renowned pop star at 17, Britney is a true “showbiz child”. Today, most agree that she has reached the status of pop icon. Rolling Stone magazine wrote that Britney is “one of the most controversial and successful female vocalists of the 21st century,” and “spearheaded the rise of post-millennial teen pop”.

Despite her seven hit albums and her iconic status, most will remember Britney Spears not for her music, but for the drama surrounding her personal life. She was indeed involved in a long list of controversies and rumors regarding her love life, her pasty, her drug use, her mental stability and even her parenting skills. While some believe that Britney deserves this public ridicule due to the fact she’s a “talentless hack” or “trailer trash” living a decadent lifestyle, others see in Britney the classic symptoms of a young performer who went through the devastating mind control machine of the entertainment industry. Britney indeed bears many classic symptoms of a Monarch programming victim. Further, the video of Hold it Against Me contains many visual clues that hint at Britney’s mental prison. We will first look at some significant events in Britney’s life and how they are related to trauma-based mind control, then we’ll look at the occult meaning of the video Hold it Against Me.

Raised in the Illuminati Entertainment Industry

Although it is difficult to determine which celebrities have actually undergone trauma-based mind control programming, Britney Spears displays the most obvious symptoms. She grew up in rural Louisiana in a family plagued with substance abuse and violence, making her an ideal candidate to be handed over to the industry. At age eight, Britney and her mother Lynne traveled to Atlanta for an audition in the 1990’s revival of The Mickey Mouse Club. Casting director Matt Cassella rejected her due to her young age but still referred her to their talent agent Nancy Carson. Britney was then introduced to what Springmeier calls “The Network”. She then moved with her mother to New York and attended the Professional Performing Arts School. Soon after, she landed a job as an understudy in the Broadway musical Ruthless! with another industry child Natalie Portman.

At the age of 13, Britney was finally cast in the Mickey Mouse Club and entered Disney’s Illuminati mind-control system.

The Mickey Mouse Club is one of Disney’s many projects aimed to recruit and mold child stars. The corporation obviously means to make money off these young talents, but there is also a more sinister side to its operations. Disney has been used by the occult elite since its beginnings in the 1930s and has closely worked with the government on numerous occasions. Disney was hired by the government to produce numerous propaganda films and Walt Disney himself even participated in secret CIA secret projects. According to several researchers, Disney was part of the CIA’s MK-ULTRA program: Its properties were used for mind-control experiments and many of its productions deliberately contained mind-control triggers and symbolism.

“This author theorizes that the reason the FBI and CIA are so touchy about letting people know that Walt worked for the government is that the Network knows how the FBI and CIA worked together to procure children for mind-control programming purposes. Because Disney and Disneyland played such as an enormous role in Mind Control, Disney’s connection to them, although on the surface a seemingly minor fact, is in reality a minor fact sitting on top of an enormous ghastly secret.”
– Fritz Springmeier, Deeper Insights Into the Illuminati Formula

CA–Disneyland has been an off hour site for Illuminati and satanic rituals for years. Programming has gone on using Disneyland as one big prop for programming. Many of the Disney movies are used for programming, and some Disney scripts are especially tailored for Monarch slave programming. The Peter Pan programming can use the ship. The space programming can use the space props. The satanic programming can use the castles. Lots of mirror programming is done at Disneyland, and Disneyworld. There is also Magic Mountain programming, and programming using the Around the World Dolls, and its theme song. Some of Wizard of Oz and the Cinderella programming was also done at Disneyland using costumes. Preverbal children are taken to Disneyland to get them ready for the scripts.”
– Fritz Springmeier, The Illuminati Formula to Create a Mind Control Slave

Disney’s involvement in mind control also reflected on The Mickey Mouse Club and its trademark mouse ears became a symbol of mind control.

“In 1955, Walt Disney made his cartoon character Mickey Mouse real by creating a fan club–the Mickey Mouse Club, which aired five days a week usually just as children came home from school. Twenty-four children called Mouseketeers would help Mickey, and they would dance and sing and do skits. The Mickey Mouse Club adored the unique, cute little beanie Mickey Mouse caps with their big ears mounted to each side of the beanie. In the 1950’s, most kid viewers of the show wanted their own “Mouse Ears” and to become a Mouseketeer, especially children who were receiving Mickey Mouse scripts in their total mind-control programming.”
– Springmeier, Op. Cit.

According to ex-Illuminati programmer Svali, many pop singers are used by the Illuminati to promote their messages and perpetuate the idea of mind control. In one interview, Britney Spears and the Mickey Mouse Club are specifically mentioned:

“I believe that Brittany Spears, and others are being used by them to sing lyrics they like. (…) In fact, many of the top pop singers come from an internship with the “Mickey Mouse club” (yep, good old Walt the Illuminist’s Empire) and I believe they are offered stardom in exchange for allegiance or mind control.”

Kitten Programming

In 1998, Spears signed with Jive Records and released her first solo album …Baby One More Time. As it is the case for almost all teenage Disney stars, Britney’s image was focused on a blend of childhood innocence and sexuality – the sexualization of childhood is now a recurring theme in pop culture. It is also the bid of Illuminati Kittens (those who underwent beta programming) to be portrayed in the media as teenage idols. In her first video, Britney is dressed as a Catholic school girl while singing lyrics like  “hit me baby one more time”. Some of her early photoshoots exploited the same theme, causing controversy.

About the above picture,  Britney (who was 16 at the time) claimed that Lachapelle tricked her into a sexy shoot:

“Sexy superstar BRITNEY SPEARS is fond of the photos taken of her by DAVID LaCHAPELLE for ROLLING STONE magazine – but insists the legendary snapper tricked her into it.

The BOYS beauty was just 16 when LaChapelle snapped her in her bedroom surrounded by dolls, and the finished product shocked readers around the world.

But Britney – who is now proud of the images – insists she had no idea they would turn out to be so saucy.

She says, “He came in and did the photos and totally tricked me. They were really cool but I didn’t really know what the hell I was doing. And, to be totally honest with you, at the time I was 16, so I really didn’t.

“I was back in my bedroom, and I had my little sweater on and he was like, ‘Undo your sweater a little bit more.’ The whole thing was about me being into dolls and in my naive mind I was like, ‘Here are my dolls!’

“And now I look back and I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh, what the hell?’ But he did a very good job of portraying me in that way. It certainly wasn’t peaches and cream.”

Tattoos are often significant in Monarch programming. One of Britney Spear’s first tattoos – a butterfly (a Monarch is a type of butterfly) leaving a vine – symbolizes the slave emerging from the elite’s bloodline system. Tattoos are the preferred way of the Illuminati to identify Monarch slaves (see former Disney child star Vanessa Hudgens first tattoo).

“A note should be made that the American intelligence agencies tattooed some of their slaves with blue Monarch butterflies, bluebirds, or roses for identification purposes. (…).”
– Op Cit. Springmeier.

After a couple of albums, where she went from singing “I’m not that innocent” to “I’m a slave 4 U” (can we be less subtle?), Britney became a fully grown woman and an industry veteran. Her “consecration” to the Illuminati industry was celebrated by Madonna in a symbolic performance during the 2003 VMAs, alongside fellow Mouseketeer Christina Aguilera.


It has been observed that years of Monarch programming often result in the subject breaking down around the age of 30. The unbearable abuse these slaves have to live through cannot be sustained for decades, especially when one is under constant public scrutiny. Celebrities who go through this kind of life almost inevitably succumb to drug abuse and self-destructive behavior. When their programming starts to fail, they often die in mysterious circumstances. Look at the lives of Monarch slaves such as Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland and Anna Nicole Smith and see if you detect any similarities. Hopefully, this won’t happen to Britney.

In the past years, numerous events surrounding Britney Spears led to the questioning of her mental stability. Many strange episodes, documented by various sources,  show that Britney often exhibits telling symptoms of a Monarch slave. One of them is having multiple personalities.

Monarch slaves are trained to dissociate and to take on alter personas, each of them having their own characteristics and even different accents. People close to Britney have described these precise symptoms:

“Sources are now painting a very disturbing picture of Britney Spears, or whoever she happens to be at any given moment.

We’re told the whole British accent thing — well, it’s more than an accent. Britney has multiple personalities, including, as people in her life call it, “the British girl.” We’re told when Spears loses the British personality, she has absolutely no idea what she did during the time she assumed that personality.

Sources say Brit has a number of other identities, where she becomes “the weepy girl, the diva, the incoherent girl,” and on and on.

Sources say Britney had become the British girl the day she didn’t show for her deposition and has no recollection of it.”

Britney Spears’ recent bizarre behaviour may be down to multiple personality disorder, it has been revealed.

The troubled singer’s ‘favourite’ identity appears to involve talking with a British accent, inspired by her latest boyfriend, Birmingham-born paparazzo boyfriend Adnan Ghalib.

Sources claim the singer, 26, is suffering from dissociative identity disorder, which leads the sufferers to take on various personalities to dissociate them from reality.

During her turbulent period with Kevin Federline, many accounts surfaced regarding her suicidal tendencies and her alleged bi-orientation – other characteristics of a Monarch Kitten.

Probably the most infamous moment of Britney’s public life is her head-shaving incident. The event occurred the day after she was admitted to rehab – “rehab” often being a code word for “programming”. A closer look at the details of this bizarre incident bear all of the signs of a mind-control slave attempting to break free from their handler’s control.

So Britney said that she was tired of having things plugged into it (her head) and did not want anybody touching her. Is she referring to the abuse given by her mind-control handlers? Britney’s radical act of shaving her head might be a desperate attempt to “shed her old self” and restart anew. What did Britney refer to when mentioning “things plugged into her head”? One of the only instances in which something is plugged into someone’s head is during electroshock therapy- one of Monarch programming’s basic techniques.

“Electroshock is used to create the dissociation from trauma during the programming, and later it is used to remove memories after the slave has carried out a mission, or to instill fear and obedience in a reluctant slave. Slaves generally carry horrible body memories of excruciating electro-shock to their entire bodies. As the slaves begin a therapeutic deprogramming process they will recover these horrible memories, not to mention many other painful memories.”
– Springmeier, Op. Cit

Despite Britney’s multiple attempts to break free, she is still under the Illuminati’s control. Proof of a celebrity’s allegiance can often be found in the slave’s body of work. Celebrities are indeed used to propagate the symbolism relating to mind control and to hide in plain sight the Illuminati’s modus operandi.  Hold it Against Me is another blatant example of this Agenda as the video symbolically portrays Britney’s mind control by the industry.

Hold it Against Me

Hold it Against Me was directed by Jonas Akerlund, today’s go-to director for mind-control/occult imagery (see this previous Vigilant Citizen article on Lady Gaga’s Telephone). Not unlike Telephone, the video has absolutely nothing to do with the song’s lyrics. While the song is apparently about doing it with a stranger met in a club (promoting promiscuity to teens is always part of the Agenda), in the video there is no guy, no club and no doing it. We only see Britney, trapped in a giant cylindrical modernist nightmare, attached to intravenous lines and wearing a wedding gown. The video gives the song another meaning: It becomes about Britney’s mind control and her alter personas. It is the classic Illuminati industry story of the “good girl gone bad” and all of the ritualistic symbols and color codes described in previous articles are thoroughly apparent.

At the beginning of the video, Britney is shown in a huge cylinder composed of television monitors and video cameras. This space symbolizes Britney’s “media prison”. Like mind control slaves, she is constantly monitored by her handlers using cameras. She is also being “programmed” as monitors continually display footage of Britney’s past videos. She is closed to the outside world and can only see the images that are fed to her, which are of herself as portrayed by handlers.

Britney is wearing a white wedding gown that hints at the ritualistic aspect of the video. The white dress symbolizes Britney’s purity and innocence at the beginning of the process. This will, of course, change.

To further emphasize Britney’s mind control, she is shown attached to intravenous (IV) lines.

IV therapy is the giving of substances directly into a vein. It is used in hospitals to deliver medication, blood transfusions, and lethal injections. It is also used in Monarch programming.

“The following is a partial list of these forms of (trauma-based mind control): (…)

16. Drugs to create illusion, confusion, and amnesia, often given by injection or intravenously.
17. Ingestion or intravenous toxic chemicals to create pain or illness, including chemotherapy agents. “
– Ellen P. Lacter, Ph.D, Kinds of Torture Endured in Ritual Abuse and Trauma-Based Mind Control

“If an alter is not being cooperative when they are accessed, they can be locked in place mentally and given a quick shot of a fast-acting hypnotic-inducing drug. One drug which was popular for programming was demerol, which would be administered intravenously (an IV). It takes about 5-7 minutes to take full effect after administration via an I.V. The dosage can be administered so that the effect remains until the programming session is over.”
– Springmeier, Op. Cit.

During the chorus of the song, Britney magically levitates.

In the video, the chorus is the moment where Britney dissociates and therefore symbolically levitates. In actual mind control, the dissociative slave gets a feeling of light-headedness, as if one is floating. The lyrics of the chorus emphasize the concept of escaping reality, in other words, dissociating:

If I said my heart was beating loud
If we could escape the crowd somehow
If I said I want your body now
Would you hold it against me

Cause you feel like paradise
I need a vacation tonight
So if I said I want your body now
Would you hold it against me

Due to the pain and torment lived by the mind-control victim, dissociating actually “feels like paradise” as the slave stops feeling physical pain. They are encouraged by their handlers to escape to their “happy place”. In other words, they “need a vacation”.

While Britney is levitated, strange eyeless dancers emerge from under her gown.

The lack of eyes of these dancers gives them a non-human quality. Do they represent the spirits/demons assigned to mind-control slaves during the occult rituals conducted by their handlers?

After the dissociation scene, the next step of Monarch programming is symbolically depicted: the creation of the alter persona. This happens in a big, messy ritual where the virginal Britney dressed in white gets soiled and consumed.

During the breakdown of the song, Britney’s IV lines start spilling out colored paint (instead of blood?) all over her white dress and the monitors showing images of her youth. It is the blood sacrifice, the soiling of her innocence, the ritual abuse she must take from her handlers.

While this happens, another scene depicts two Britneys fighting – a visual representation of what happens in the slave’s psyche: the battle between two personalities.

At the end of the battle, a new Britney emerges from the process. From the pure and innocent Britney dressed in a white wedding gown is created a bad, Kitten version of Britney, who is dressed in black BDSM-style leather and surrounded by men wearing masks.

Britney’s transformation is complete in yet another video exploiting the “good girl gone bad through mind control” theme – a theme that all female pop stars seemingly have to go through. The ritualistic metamorphosis from pure to promiscuous as portrayed by other stars including Rihanna (Umbrella), Lady Gaga (Bad Romance), Christina Aguilera (Not Myself Tonight), Mariah Carey (It’s Like That) and many others has taken place once more. Young viewers witness yet another ritual that is subliminally concealed in symbols and color codes.

In Conclusion

Britney is, without a doubt, a modern pop icon embodying both the inspiring and repulsive side of fame. She has achieved her life-long dream of becoming a successful singer, yet this success has required her to become part of a dark, manipulative, abusive system. Of the many pop stars promoting the Illuminati mind control agenda, Britney is one of the most obvious cases of an actual Monarch slave. We have looked at some events where Britney exhibited typical symptoms of a mind-control slave but many other instances could have been added. While it is easy to ridicule the behavior and the work of pop stars, most people have absolutely no idea of the pain and the trauma these people have to suffer in order to be in the spotlight. The reason why some stars are able to remain popular and obtain airplay is that they are part of the System. Britney is part of it and, at this point, I don’t think she has much of a choice. Like other industry puppets, she is even forced to portray her own mind control in her works.

The Akerlund-directed video Hold it Against Me symbolically depicts the process of mind control and occult transformation in a semi-subliminal fashion. The constant usage of this concept in pop culture has many goals, including numbing the viewers to the system’s symbolism and motive, forcing the performers to go through mega-rituals witnessed by millions of viewers, and hiding in plain sight the true nature of the industry. According to the Illuminati’s occult philosophy, it is their karmic duty to reveal their actions (whether in a subliminal, coded matter or not): Concealing and revealing is the game they play.

Critics of Hold it Against Me video said that “Britney didn’t seem involved in the video and was not appearing to be having fun”. Would you have fun if you were forced to reenact a trauma you’ve been experiencing for your entire life?
