Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse”: One Big, Children-Friendly Tribute to the Illuminati



Katy Perry's "Dark Horse": One Big, Children-Friendly Tribute to the Illuminati

Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” is a fun and colorful video taking place in Ancient Egypt. However, behind the cartoonish style of the video, viewers are exposed to a great deal of symbolism of the occult elite and messages regarding its power. We’ll look at the symbolism of “Dark Horse”.

Katy Perry is a gigantic pop star, mainly because her songs and videos appeal to teens and pre-teens while her sex-appeal captures the attention of the older crowd. This makes her a perfect tool to be used by the elite to communicate its messages and, as seen in previous articles about her, her songs and videos are fully used for that purpose. Dark Horse, however, is on a whole other level. It is pure, relentless, in-your-face Illuminati symbolism, interlaced with references to the elite’s brand of black magic and mind control. Playing the role of “Katy-Patra”, an Egyptian pharaoh reminiscent of ancient sex symbol Cleopatra, Katy Perry rules over her subjects the same way the occult elite rules over the world.

In my article on the 2014 Grammy Awards, I described Katy Perry’s performance of Dark Horse as a black magick ritual disguised as a music performance. The video goes straight to the roots of this sorcery: Egyptian Black Magick, the original source that is tapped into by today’s dark secret societies.

Before we look at the actual video, let’s look at its trailer, which contains a few interesting elements.

The Trailer

Katy Perry's "Dark Horse": One Big, Children-Friendly Tribute to the Illuminati

The trailer mentions a “magical Queen” in Egypt. We see the Queen sitting in front of her subjects, which are mind-controlled sex kittens.

Then the trailer states that Kings would travel from “Brooklyn to Babylon” to meet her. Babylon, which was a real ancient metropolis located where Iraq is today, was ruled by various ancient empires and has long been an epicenter of the elite’s black magic.

The Eye of Horus, aka the All-Seeing Eye, inside a pyramid, the elite’s favorite symbol. Prepare to see a WHOLE LOT of it in the music video.

Let’s look at the video.

Dark Horse

Dark Horse takes place in a colorful, child-friendly version of Ancient Egypt that’s been “hip-hop-ized” about 15% to appeal to its target audience. Katy Perry plays the role of an evil, greedy, egotistical, despotic pharaoh named Katy-Patra who destroys men for their belongings. What a great lesson for girls under the age of 14. In a wider sense, Katy-Patra’s rule represents the occult elite taking resources and power from nations (represented by the kings). What a great lesson for the rest of the world.

Illuminati Pharaoh

Throughout the video, it is firmly established that Katy-Patra is an evil tyrant using black magic to control and destroy people while having a bunch of kitten slaves at her feet. Kind of like what the occult elite does. And of course, there are all kinds of blatant symbols that show her to be a representative of the Illuminati.

Katy Perry's "Dark Horse": One Big, Children-Friendly Tribute to the Illuminati

The Eye of Horus stamped on her wig. Very classy.

Katy Perry's "Dark Horse": One Big, Children-Friendly Tribute to the Illuminati

Doing the One-Eye sign so it is clear what this all about.

Katy Perry's "Dark Horse": One Big, Children-Friendly Tribute to the Illuminati

Katy-Patra naked and surrounded by Egyptian gods.

The above scenes tell plenty about the occult-elite influenced mythology of the video. Katy-Patra is looked upon by Anubis, the jackal-headed god of death, probably because she likes to kill people. Behind her is the falcon-headed god Horus wearing gold chains (to make him look “cool” to young, impressionable viewers). Notice that he only has one eye – a reference, once again, to the All-Seeing Eye of Horus. More importantly, Katy-Patra is surrounded by a golden snake, which probably refers to the evil Egyptian god Apep.

Katy Perry's "Dark Horse": One Big, Children-Friendly Tribute to the Illuminati

Apep is an evil god in ancient Egyptian religion depicted as a snake/serpent and a dragon. He is the deification of darkness and chaos. He is the enemy of light, order, and truth (Ma’at). In the context of Katy-Patra’s rule of general evil, her being surrounded by Apep is more than fitting. It also fits the Illuminati rule of power.

Three 6 Mafia rapper Juicy J makes an appearance in the video and his entrance is pretty darn symbolic too. He literally emerges from some kind sarcophagus, which features the occult elite’s favorite symbol in lieu of eyes: The Eye of Horus inside a triangle.

Katy Perry's "Dark Horse": One Big, Children-Friendly Tribute to the Illuminati

The symbol on the eyes is not even Egyptian, it is purely Masonic. The symbolism in the entire video is not exclusively “Egyptian” but is the specific symbolism of the occult elite.

On top of all of that symbolism, we must never forget another part of the Agenda: Exposing young people to hyper-sexualization.

Katy Perry's "Dark Horse": One Big, Children-Friendly Tribute to the Illuminati

Although she’s a powerful pharaoh, Katy-Patra always finds the time to do some pole-dancing on a stage marked with an Eye of Horus. She is also backed by her Kitten slaves – much like her young fans who imitate her, who she refers to as “Katycats”

Katy-Patra’s Suitors

The video is essentially about kings from other nations trying to wow Katy-Patra with amazing gifts. The first suitor offers her a gigantic diamond.

Katy Perry's "Dark Horse": One Big, Children-Friendly Tribute to the Illuminati

The guys is all like “you want that diamond don’t you”. He is wearing an eye-patch, hiding one eye, indicating that he’s another idiot that’s trying to be down with the elite.

Katy-Patra immediately orders her kitten slaves to snatch that diamond from the suitor.

Katy Perry's "Dark Horse": One Big, Children-Friendly Tribute to the Illuminati

Katy-Patra’s examines the diamond through a big Eye of Horus thingie. There is, however, a problem: That Eye of Horus is NOT TRANSPARENT.

The above image is symbolic for a few reasons: First, it tells the viewers that Katy-Patra plays the role of the occult elite in the video. Second, she CANNOT see through the Eye (it is opaque). She instead sees the diamond through the elite’s “eyes”, which are focused on greed, power, and material possessions. Finally, children who watch music videos need to be exposed to that one-eye sign all the time.

I could stop the video analysis here. What else do you truly need to know about the video? Katy Perry is looking at a big diamond using an Eye of Horus to hide one eye. This scene is a 100% continuation of about everything I’ve ever talked about on this site. And there it is again, right in our faces, in one of the world’s most popular videos. Really, how can anyone think that all this symbolism is “just a coincidence”? Anyhow, back to the video.

Katy Perry's "Dark Horse": One Big, Children-Friendly Tribute to the Illuminati

The eye-patched sap gets zapped by magic emerging from the eyes of Katy-Patra’s throne. That’s what you get for trying to suck up to Illuminati.

Katy Perry's "Dark Horse": One Big, Children-Friendly Tribute to the Illuminati

She then takes the guy’s jewels and stuffs them in her mouth, giving herself the classic “greedy moron” look.

The next suitor tries to entice Katy-Patra’s gluttony by offering her food.

Katy Perry's "Dark Horse": One Big, Children-Friendly Tribute to the Illuminati

This guy offers Katy-Patra food the same way poor nations give up their resources to the global elite.

Of course, things do not turn out great for that guy, either.

The last suitor brings what Katy-Patra really wants: Power.

Katy Perry's "Dark Horse": One Big, Children-Friendly Tribute to the Illuminati

This guy has a big Illuminati symbol (i.e. not Egyptian) right between his nipples. He must have something extra good for Katy-Patra.

Katy Perry's "Dark Horse": One Big, Children-Friendly Tribute to the Illuminati

Katy-Patra receives a gigantic floating pyramid which hides, under a golden layer, an illuminated structure.

Seeing this pyramid, Katy-Patra gets very excited because that’s what she, and the elite, truly wants: Unlimited occult power over the world. The illuminated pyramid essentially represents the Illuminati’s high-tech control over the world.

When Katy-Patra steps on top of the unfinished pyramid, she becomes imbued with crazy magical powers. She even grows wings.

Katy Perry's "Dark Horse": One Big, Children-Friendly Tribute to the Illuminati

Standing on top of the Illuminati pyramid, Katy-Patra turns into a super-powerful tyrant. That’s probably not a good thing. More importantly, she becomes a personification of the goddess Isis.

Katy Perry's "Dark Horse": One Big, Children-Friendly Tribute to the Illuminati

The goddess Isis is one of the most important figures in occult secret societies as she represents the key to the Mysteries.

The video ends with Katy-Patra becoming a super-Illuminati pharaoh … and everyone bows down to her … and the suitor turns into a chihuahua. The moral of the video? Illuminati.

In Conclusion

It is rather hard to believe that all of this Illuminati symbolism was packed into a video that only lasts 3 minutes and 40 seconds. It is even harder to believe that some people still cannot see the obvious pattern of symbols found in mass media that transcends artists, music genres, and even media outlets. Far from being random, these symbols have been used for centuries to represent the occult elite and they are now all over the place.

More than just flashing symbols, the video Dark Horse tells a darker story: the occult elite’s insatiable greed for ultimate power while dismissing the petty rulers operating underneath it. Katy-Patra indeed takes resources from various kings of the world and then destroys them. In the end, she climbs on an Illuminati pyramid and turns into an unstoppable pharaoh imbued with magical powers. Could the brainwashing be more obvious?

In short, Dark Horse is Illuminati propaganda aimed at children, using bright colors and catchy hooks to subliminally teach them who rules the world and who controls the idols that they love and emulate. Of course, none of this is clearly spelled out. Instead, it comes at you through symbolism … like a dark horse.

This song is totally illuminati and yes they are real and do exist(im also a mind control victim) know everything about it.
Illuminatie just means( ill, borderline ill) They all sing about borderline. Next to that the ones in the illuminati are gifted people. So they are gifted borderliners that lead the world and let other people think what it is keeps the people going;) and you cannot sell your soul…it chooses you!
Wanna know more about it? send me an email.


Whats your email adress?


It started on Wide Awake, where all of us thought that she got out of the Illuminati. Making her like an innocent girl in front of her fans, and the ones that cared for her. Now Dark Horse came out, and proved that she hasn't really got out. Maybe.. maybe she got out but the Illuminati really brainwashed her AGAIN. She was scared of losing money and fans. And that's one thing you get when you let your kids watch televisions and music videos online.

From the lyrics it sounds lake Katy Perry sings about being the Goddess Ishtar, being violent possessing magical powers, act like a w---e, and creating chaos. Anyone draw the same conclusion?


actually this video has another meaning too. after that video big accident happened at important mine in turkey. ın sky there is our flat and mine workers . but why? because our government changed policy, they used to look like one of them to use power of masons but from now on they decided they don't need masons anymore so government arrested all of the important masons. and that "accident"was rotschilld's anger ı guess.


sad part is I'm starting to accept it, which is what they want. To show us they're in control and there's nothing we can do

The song is even worse than the video. If you read the lyrics, they are malevolent and sociopathic. The line that gets to me is "Cause once you’re mine, once you’re mine/There’s no going back" Very spooky. As for the video there is a plethora of imagery that alludes to the systematic destruction of morality. My favorite part is the junk-food caravan and the giant cup (of water)? that she turns the fat man into. The cup is an ancient occult symbol associated with sensuality and seduction. The explanation for the tarot card Queen of Cups: "(If Reversed.) An immoral person who demands constant attention, she is a manipulative and moody woman who will drain your energies." The way I see that particular scene is the corruption of the holy grail and the blood of Christ. We see the transmutation of human life into sustenance- or SACRIFICE as it is known. Here Katy Perry is taking in the devil's communion – complete with cheetos and a giant glass of whatever- probably liquor. I think the most important thing this article left out is the Osiris Myth- which is the foundation of all secret societies, and the creation of the NWO.


Let me tell you guys:

The 'Allah' of the Koran is not the same as the Lord God (Yahweh, Jehovah) of the Bible. It's because in the Koran ( I forgot the book and the verse ) Allah does not have a son, while the Everlasting Father of the Bible have a Son, who is Co-Eternal with the Him.

Someone who isn't me

Wow, the comments here really turned religious, but it was not a blame game, but a civilized discussion about religion wow! I myself is a protestant christian, but i really don't believe in God or Allah, or religion, i can see the things from both sides, why to some people see the truth in god, i can also see why many people think it's totally pure BS. But i myself, believe that, there are truly no truth, not in the past not in present nor in the future, men wrote the bible, killing, massacres, hell the roman empire and the roman gods feel to the christian crusades in the beginning of the european dark age, churches and priests burned women who had understanding of the nature because they were witches. The christian church also in the old days way back had people pay money and they got a little envelope and all of their sins were forgiven. But that's all mans fault, mans lust for power, money, pleasure, That's what binding everything together, the Mafia 's wouldn't be "Brothers" if there weren't any money involved, hell even illuminati and all of these other cults and sects wouldn't exist if there… Read more »


It must be mention that the real life Cleopatra was a black woman, NOT a white woman like Elizabeth Taylor, Angelina Jolie, or Katy Perry.

voice of reason

The last time I checked the Greeks were not black. You have been deceived by politically correct propaganda. Also, there were many Cleopatras. Cleopatra was a title like queen or president. Look it up.


@voice of reason..Tony hasn't been deceived by any "politically correct propaganda"..Your response sounds seriously defensive almost like you don't want it to be true! Damn…Besides it's been documented for ages that Cleopatra was a black woman..Me myself, I could careless what Cleopatra was BUT I understand WHY Tony posted what he posted because of the plain fact that it has been well documented forever that Cleopatra was black..

Voice of reason

I am not defensive. I don't care whether a famous woman is black or not. I do care about the truth, however. Fact number 1–Alexander the Great conquered most of the ancient world including Egypt. Fact number 2–after the death of Alexander the empire was divided among his generals. Ptolemy the first received Egypt. The Ptolemies were Macedonian Greeks, not Egyptians and certainly not Africans. The Cleopatra to which you refer was the seventh Cleopatra from an exceedingly incestuous family. In fact, she married her brother. The Hellenist period in Egypt was due to Greek colonization. These are all readily available facts. Where are yours?? Don't just tell me that there are ages and ages of documentation that Cleopatra is black. Tell me what it is and where to find it. I hate to say it, but you are the one who sounds defensive and angry, not I.

Truth is

Black woman is the mother of the earth despite contrary reports.


Cleopatra was Greek. She may have had an dark hair, dark eyes and an olive complexion, but she wasn't necessarily "black." She may have been more inbetween. Generally in ancient times many people had dark hair and eyes. Natural blonde and red hair have always been very rare in adulthood, except now we've got hair dye and many fake blondes (and sometimes redheads). Also while Cleopatra was probably considered beautiful in her era, many people today would probably not rate her as anything special at all.


Wow, ISIS? Really?


Wow. So I read up on this video here, and set my expectations accordingly, not like I'd ever watch it. My 3-and-5 year old nieces however, picked up on a part that you didn't account for. They wanted to show me this video, BUT ONLY FOR THE DOG RUNNING ON HIS HIND LEGS FOR A SECOND AT 2:55. Katy got through the 'adult' filter, and this moment of cuteness is what hooked them. I said 'Yea, good job co-opting Egyptian iconography for personal gain'. Just sayin'.


That's not it at all. You completely missed the point of the ritual. It was a satanic ritual sacrifice to the gods that the freemasons/illuminati believe in. The bird cages represent mind control. There is no such thing as cat sex slaves, there's so much crap on the internet set there to confuse people. Everything in this video from the colours (blue,red yellow etc.) to even the tiniest details such as the hats, the dice, the sparkle in her teeth, the one sign she makes with her hand are symbolic. Use your eyes. The freemasons sacrifice youth to their gods because they believe it will ensure them a passage to heaven or immortality. Essentially, they are sacrificing souls to satan so that their souls can be saved. Any freemasons you know, whether you have been friends with them for 10 year or not will turn against you if you are the sacrifice. When they join they take a blood oath. They will distract you with fake symbols in order for the ritual to be complete. I should know, I am one.


They really are suffering from a lack of public self image aren't they? It's like, we'll enlist this pop star with a few diamonds and stuff to make our weird s--t symbolism gain popularity. No-one cares about your dead egyptians man! Keep dreaming your little illuminati world. Must be fun in there.


Hmm, I feel like there was something missed here. Remember how she drank from this massive cup after she vaporized the fat guy? Read Revelation 17:6 and tell me what you think.


I read it just now and it maybe linked but it really does seem similar.

Can someone answer this: what i don't understand is if these actors and singers and rappers know they are beng used why keep doing it

Peter de Beer

Who can explain to me why certain images in a clip are "wrong" ? It's nice that you see everywhere, but what is bad and why?


Though I ALREADY knew that because there is alot of illuminati eyes


Rare and intresting
