Madonna’s Superbowl Halftime Show: A Celebration of the Grand Priestess of the Music Industry


When I learned that Madonna – aka the Grand Priestess of the music industry – would be performing at the Superbowl halftime show, I thought: “This should be interesting”. And it was. While most were amazed by a woman in her fifties dancing around with LMFAO and others were annoyed at her lip-syncing, I was interested with something else: The flurry of symbolism flashed to billions of viewers worldwide. While most considered Madonna’s performance as an entertaining interlude to the most important football game of the year, those blessed with symbol-literacy will probably agree with the following statement: Madonna’s halftime show was a big celebration of the Illuminati industry and of its Grand Priestess, Madonna.

A week before the Superbowl, Madonna described on Anderson Cooper the spiritual importance she attributed to her halftime show:

“The Superbowl is kind of like the Holy of Holies in America. I’ll come at halfway of the “church experience” and I’m gonna have to deliver a sermon. It’ll have to be very impactful.”

It is rather appropriate that this Kaballah-initiate referred to the Superbowl as the “Holy of Holies” as it was the name of the most sacred place in Solomon’s Temple. No one was ever permitted to enter the Holy of Holies but the High Priest. This privilege was only granted on the Day of Atonement, to offer the blood of sacrifice and incense before the mercy seat. Madonna’s analogy was, therefore, telling of the mindset behind her performance. Let’s look at the main parts of her show.

Vogue or Entrance of the Priestess

Madonna entrance is an elaborate procession fit for a High Priestess or even a goddess.

Pushed by hundreds of Roman soldiers and welcomed by hundreds of women, Madonna’s glorious entrance is a reflection of her status in the entertainment world.

Her first performance was highly influenced by ancient Egypt-Sumeria-Babylon and Madonna’s costume recalls an ancient Babylonian goddess.

The decor of Madonna’s first performance combines elements from ancient Egypt, Sumeria, and Babylon. Madonna herself is dressed in a way that highly resembles an Ancient Sumerian/Babylonian goddess, Inanna-Ishtar.
Ishtar with her foot on a roaring lion and wearing a distinctive headdress resembling Madonna’s horned crown. Ishtar is often depicted with wings, a feature that is recalled on Madonna’s “carriage”.

Ishtar was a powerful and assertive goddess whose areas of control and influence included warfare, love, sexuality, prosperity, fertility, and prostitution. She sought the same existence as men, enjoying the glory of battle and seeking sexual experiences. Madonna’s portrayal as Ishtar is therefore quite interesting as one can argue that the pop singer has embodied, throughout her career, the same assertive yet highly sexual qualities of Ishtar, even achieving a state of power in the music industry that is usually reserved to men. On an esoteric level, Ishtar is associated with the planet Venus, known as the Morning Star or the Evening Star.

The presence of two Sphinxes in front of Madonna greatly resembles the tarot card The Chariot. According to Manly P. Hall: “This card signifies the Exalted One who rides in the chariot of creation. The sphinxes drawing the chariot resent the secret and unknown power by which the victorious ruler is moved continuously through the various parts of his universe.”

So, in this mythologically-charged setting, Madonna performed Vogue. During the performance, covers of Vogue Magazine were displayed, a publication that is at the forefront of Illuminati symbolism in fashion (as seen in the series of articles Symbolic Pics of the Month).

Vogue ends with a symbol that is consistent with the Egyptian-Babylonian theme of the performance, one that is also of highest importance in occult Secret Societies such as Freemasons, the Rosicrucians, and the Illuminati: the Winged Sun-Disk.

The song ends with the displaying of a Winged Sun-Disk.

Egyptian mystics used the winged sun for ritualistic magic and invocations:

“‘Emblematic of the element of air, this consists of a circle or solar-type disk enclosed by a pair of wings. In ritual magic it is suspended over the alter in an easterly direction and used when invoking the protection and co-operation of the sylphs.”
Hope, Murry, “Practical Egyptian Magic”

The winged sun is still being used today by groups like the Freemasons, the Theosophists, and the Rosicrucians.

“The Winged Globe is pre-eminently a Rosicrucian symbol, although the Illuminati may lay claim to it, and it may be admitted that it is of Egyptian origin. The Winged Globe is the symbol of the perfected soul making its flight back to the source of its creation in the Elysian fields beyond.”
-Swinburne, Clymer, “The Rosicrucians, Their Teachings”

The symbol of the winged-sun inside a Masonic lodge.

The display of this symbol, although apparently trivial and aesthetic, emphasizes on the occult spiritual dimension underlying Madonna’s entire performance.

Give Me All Your Luvin’ or Madonna’s Sex Kittens

Later in the show, Madonna performed her new single Give Me All Your Luvin’. The song features two new industry favorites: Nikki Minaj and M.I.A. In the song’s music video and during the Superbowl performance, these two female rappers are portrayed in a specific way:  Instead of being presented as full-fledged artists contributing to Madonna’s song, they are portrayed as her “minions” who are cheering for the industry’s High Priestess. This “relationship” where Madonna is in power – and therefore the handler – is drenched in Mind Control symbolism, specifically Beta Programming, also know Sex Kitten Programming.

In the video for Give me Your Luvin’, Madonna, Nikki Minaj and M.I.A. are dressed as Marilyn Monroe, the ultimate prototype of Sex Kitten Programming.

Another symbol associated with Sex Kitten programming is feline prints clothing and textiles. The entire half-time show was an animal-print extravaganza.

Like a Prayer or the Final Sermon

Madonna closed the halftime show with one of her biggest hits: Like a Prayer. The video of this song was always controversial due to its mixing of religious themes with sexuality. As the song starts, the show takes on a very solemn and spiritual vibe as Madonna and Cee-Lo Green enter the stage to give the final sermon. Religious figures are usually dressed in white to represent purity and godliness. The two singers were dressed in black robes and black robes are usually used in…black masses.

As the song begins, a huge eye pupil is displayed before the stage, hinting to the Illuminati-influence of this spiritual performance.

Madonna’s halftime show ends in a dramatic yet very significant matter:

At the end of her performance, the floor opens underneath Madonna’s feet and she falls into oblivion.

As Madonna is swept in what appears to be the “Underworld”, Madonna sings “I hear you call my name, And it feels like home”. This is another inversion of conventional religious symbolism as “home” should be in the heavens. In Madonna’s case, she obviously didn’t go in that direction.

The show ends with a message no one can disagree with.

The words “World Peace” appear on the stage, a PR-friendly slogan used by those pushing for a New World Order lead by a one world government.


In Conclusion

When taken individually, the symbols described above can be simply considered as “cool-looking” and most Superbowl viewers did not give them much attention. The packing all of these signs and symbols in one comprehensive 13-minute performance cannot, however, be dismissed as “random images”. Quite to the contrary, the combination of all of these symbols form a whole and define with great depth the underlying philosophy and Agenda of those in power – the Illuminati. Madonna’s embrace of the Illuminati symbolism discussed on this site coincides with her signing with Interscope Records, one of the main purveyors of Illuminati symbolism in the music industry. Her halftime show performance can, therefore, be considered as the “launching” of her three-album (and 40 million dollars) relationship with the prominent label. Madonna’s Superbowl performance has shown that, despite the fact that she is an industry icon and that she pioneered most of the themes modern pop stars still exploit, she still needs to fit the mold and to embrace the same symbolism rookie pop stars.

Laced with profound imagery, Madonna’s halftime performance was a massive Illuminati ritual, one that was witnessed by millions of viewers. On this Superbowl “Day of Atonement”, Madonna, the High Priestess of the Illuminati industry, entered the Holy of Holies of America and delivered a 13 minutes sermon that was heard by all…but understood by few.

And her new album is to promote the drugs extasis in the young population…B***h!

You completely missed the boat on the “World Peace” message at the end (and also featured at the end of the Coldplay halftime show). This is central to the elite’s plan for a one world government. “World Peace” ensures nobody rises up to overthrow their control system.

She had to have some help with her music career, given how talentless she is…. Ps. She can't sing, nor act, and needs to rely on props so no-one notice who truly dreadful her work is…….

glad we don't look at this american superbowl s**t in europe…

When Madonna attended a talk-show, and my mom saw it on the TV, she insists that "Madonna" (referring to the guest of the talk-show) isn't the real Madonna. My mom spotted a huge and vast difference on the current "Madonna". The real Madonna might have died in the '90s, since, she's old, based on my mom's observation. In my curiosity, I searched deeper in the internet, and might conclude that a hidden agenda or propaganda may or probably created a clone. So that, the people could continue to believe that she's still alive. And that, the agenda may also use the "Queen Of Pop" for reasons.

Wow, thats really creepy. Maybe she did? She definitely sounds way different in her music than she did in the 80's.

Sorry for those pseudo feminists who read this…. but if I had the chance Madonna would be one of those women deserving to be heavily kicked in the c##t for all her souless slavish lap dancing in the palms of the power structure elite to gain entry into the club. I'm sure the entitlement she feels she is due is measurable only by others in the same league whose ego's are the size of planets like hers…. Others like say Bono and Bob Geldof. Grrrrrrrr !!
Bring back real rock bands…… like DISASTER AREA !!

thank you all for a very wounderfull point of view. i can tell you are very inteligent people with a good purpose. im a teen and im in high school and my father has gave me the information i need to open my eyes and think for myself. i see all of this happening and i am very upset that the american dream is a nightmare. but i was woundering if i could get some comments on a theory me and my father have constructed. after hours of research me and him found out that that there are 33 or so steps in being a free mason. we believe the 33 steps of a "pyrimid". and the main "objective" (or so was told) of the free masons is to influence the members to excell in life to become rich and important. and the illuminati is about exterminating the, well 99%… Read more »

Glad to hear you're thinking for yourself. Good on you and your Dad.

To learn more begin by reading the Holy Bible-start with the book of John. Download Chuck Missler tapes to learn more about how everything connects and fits.

The occupy movement was an arm of obama’s presidential campaign, nothing more.

“Anonymous” was originally a group of mainly channers who made mischief, but now mostly refers to sjw retardation and low budget youtube videos.

Now i think iv'e joined the dots,she's playing Esther,as in preparation of the Purim festival of war and slaughter of Iranians.She's a Kabbalist after all,ain't she??

Esther saved the Jews from slaughter and genocide. God did the saving Ester was the instrument.… A performer who wants to pretend to be daring can’t go wrong mocking Christianity, particularly the Roman Catholic Church. Its symbols are familiar and its reactions predictable: expressions of outrage that fade rapidly until the next time a performer needs a booster shot of notoriety. The only thing that offends me about the performance of Nicki Minaj on Sunday at the Grammy Awards is the idea of it as daring. On the contrary, it perfectly fit the offense template that has been used by everyone from the photographer who in 1987 depicted a crucifix in a jar of urine to Lady Gaga in her 2010 Alejandro video: Simply juxtapose religious symbols with something crude or sexual. The controversy will roll in like the tide and recede just as predictably. Minaj pushed all the buttons with her Roman Holiday performance. She had a man in papal garb, stained-glass windows, altar… Read more »

Madonna used to speak with an English accent. This is not natural or possible for an American unless one goes permanently into acting mode. It is called speaking with 'an effect' and is symptomatic of someone with a psychopathic personality. This homeosexual has PHONEY written all over her and it is a huge concern that she has so much influence over our culture and youth through the corporate media.

CNN reports Celine Dion's reaction

''"There's something that happens that I don't understand," she said, "and that's why I'm so scared. I'm scared of show business. I'm scared of drugs. I'm scared of hanging out. And that's why I don't do parties, and that's why I don't hang out. That's why I'm not part of show business, because we have to be afraid."


The pic of her with the sun disc she is posing like Aleister Crowley

Is Ra El

Isis The sun God Ra, and El means God.

Madonna means "Virgin Mary" and guess who this parallels.. yes the one and only Ishtar.

Interesting. You mentioned 'Ishtar' and her chosen Kaballan name is 'Esther'. .. Too close for coincidence?

Now it's Beyonce this year, and I am so looking forward to your article!

fyi not everyone realises the symbolism because they dont recognise it or don't take the satanic/occult images seriously. like us but at least we see what's going on.

both we underestimate humanity, but so do the NWO. remember that.

Check out Black Eyed Peas' performance at last year's Superbowl. Giant eye for a stage, transhumanised band members and at times, a warped digitalised audience

Notice that madonna is wearing the Cross at all the time…wich what purposse?

Ok, this comes up again and again on this website: the sex kitten. How does it have anything to do with mind control programming? Please explain.

her outfit under the gold priestess robes / goddess robes reminded me of the valkyries which makes sense as they hover over battle fields to collect the souls of the fallen warriors as well as instructing the young men in war

in some traditions they are said to weave a tapestry or cloth from blood entrails arrows etc which will determine the outcome of the battle

That 3rd picture of Madonna's face as the stage is like a replica of that popular picture of Aleister Crowley…creepy

Christians and belivers in Christ: Have you ever thought or contemplated the fact that Lucifer is (as Bob Dylan put it) the "Commander in Chief, of this world and that world we can't see"? While you all wait around taking the passive approach, waiting for a second coming, Lucifer consolidates power and fortifies a dominating position on the planet HE rules. It is possible there will be no second coming. It was all a fantastic and deceptive ruse to keep you passive, until it is too late to stop the grand plan from coming into fruition.

Well well well I thought I read something that talked about world peace in relation to one worldly government where you can "Do what thou wilt"

This definitely explains further as to why Madonna is one of the "kingpins" of the illuminati so that they can spread the message and entrap a whole lot of blind souls that are unaware of the iluminatis doings.

Articles like these are definitely always keeping me vigilant as to what other dark deeds the illuminati has for this blind world where few can see the truth

did you forget to mention, or was it not obvious to you, that there was a giant sigil involved in this ritual; and the rune-like graffiti on her throne which seems to be related. is it possible that the purpose of the ritual may have been to charge that sigil using the heightened emotions of the many thousands of fans packed into the stadium that night? it would make for some very potent sigil magic to push forward the magicians desire, wouldn't it… oh, there happened to be a full moon that night as well.

This makes sense. I thought I saw a sigil elsewhere, but I think I was wrong. I was too busy looking for a Hebrew meaning in the MDNA, but now I think I should take a peek at runes.

Hi can i ask you to analyse the song Frozen is it about the Devil she is dressed weird and i always wondered about that song.

I'd love to see someone, maybe with the tools of say a Freeman or Maxwell, to dissect this ritual piece by piece. While all these above observations are interesting, what it most telling to me that this performance is basically sinister ("senestre" = left hand path) is that it exists at all. The overarching narrative is that we are basically being told that there is only room for one person at the top. Madonna reflects an ideal, as do her "messages" (self-absorbed "prayer", vogueing and all the ego-based activity she references in idealized pseudo-spiritual language). …the world is a battle ground between warriors serving an overlord (divine empress in this case), not truly a dance party. Life in society is a highly choreographed military ritual where only the empress transcends (in this case, descends). To place this narrative in the centre of a mass consumer sports spectacle reinforces the very… Read more »

i'm 11 and i started hearing about when i was only the tender age of 10 and just like John i was scared out of my mind. i couldn't believe what i was hearing or seeing. i mean the people that i used to wanna be like turned into these people that i don't even know. One thing that i learned though is the deeper that you get into this subject and the more you pray about it the less scarier it gets and the more you can handle. just a word of advice.

"Harry was good and meek, and yet kind." No, he was not good. Read about Jesus Christ's life on Earth, then examine this statement He made: Mark 10:18 "Why do you call me good?" Jesus answered. "No one is good–except God alone. Now consider your misguided statement. Speaking to serpents (which are an evil invisible reality which God gives us power over) is evil. Witchcraft is condemned and evil. Many people only find this and more out about the occult when it's late in their walk away from Christ, only to finally discover the truth and welcome Yahweh back into their lives, but now in their walk with the Lord, they have these stories, quotes, occult song lyrics, and other crap come up again and again in their life and they are tormented with it. The lesson of the occult is: don't mess with it. People love to write about… Read more »

I felt the whole Super Bowl event was one big Illuminati wet dream. Besides the Satanic half-time show featuring the "Grand Princess", many of the commercials had dark undertones to them, including the one showing Katy Perry, Gaga and a horde of other butterfly monarchs wailing at their moon God while fireworks exploded. ("Firework")

Another video shows Perry with a tattoo on her wrist inscribed with the name of Jesus in an obvious mocking gesture to the spikes the Pharisees had hammered into Him. Even the Corvette offered as a prize to the MVP, save for a bit of red accent, was solid black inside and out. I can only imagine what the Luciferians have in store for us in Super Bowl L.

I am sick and tired of these wicked heathens. They deserve everything that they have coming. Wake up while there is still time. Keep your eyes on the Middle East. Destruction comes. Get your house in order.

cant wait for the niki minaj article after this..

Didn't you all notice that the stage it's an inverted cross?

If you go to the Youtube video and pause it on 12:09 in the Like A Prayer song, you can see how all the people in the choir make an inverted cross and the stage light behind forms a triangle with an eye in the middle, while also the other one-eye is displayed at the bottom in the giant screen of the floor.

Good work…though provoking.

Well done. I like the analysis. It is sound and consistent with what she has been doing over the years.

Hello/Salam Aleikoum to all,

first and far most…all my thanx to this website which have opened my eyes more, after watching the documentary from the Arrivals. All I want to say is this;

VC: Keep spreading your word…there ARE people who are waking up. It might be slowly but the groups are growning each day. I searched for my truth; started with all the religions and ended with Islam. If you are a believer in God or not; KNOW THAT EVIL WILL NEVER PREVAIL.

(sorry if I made a few mistakes in English, since I was born in Holland ;))

All the love: S.

So this is my question to you all. Do you feel Whitney Houston was the sacrifice being she died 7 days later on the Sabbath?? Its always been said that Whitney was to pure and from day 1 they have been bringing her down. She also has a new album and movie coming out which will still be used to reach the masses even while shes gone

My feeling is Houston was about to spill the beans on the inner workings of the industry, or perhaps embarrass someone at the awards show, and thus had to be taken out, a la MJ.

It's amusing that some think those winged disks actually symbolized flying saucers in their earliest depictions. Not the sun, but the "chariot" of the "gods". Inanna was notorious for whisking men away into her airborne vessel and never returning them again. Gilgamesh calls her on this one time.

Omg I Didnt Think This Stuff Was Really Until My Sister Friends Showed Her One Day And After That I Got Into This Stuff I Wrote A Book Report On This And I Got An "A" And A Extra Credit But Really The HalfTime Show Was Freaky And After That A Day Later I Got On This Website And I Look At All Tis Stuff And I Looked Ir Over And Im Saying Danggggggg!!!! This Stuff Is Real….. Everybody Needs To Get There Stuff Ready Because The World Is Getting Worst EVERYDAY And SOmething Is Going To Happen..

When I read your articles VC, i'm always thinking "it's so blatant, why so much people are blind"

I mean, it's like people who organise these huge shows were laughing at us, mixing every kind of symbolism and knowing that majority of people is ignorant.

It's time to wake up.

Thank you for your work and don't stop man!

ok guys so i submitted a post but as im using a VPN through a country that censors its internet, it may have not gone through. anyways, ill try to repeat what i said before so dont mind me if you have to see a similar post above. i actually have a question, im new to this site and i love it, but i have always wondered one thing… dont you think hollywood is aware of us? ppl that are now starting to question them and surely it must know that the symbols they use are no longer "subtle" since we see them EVERYONE especially lately. sometimes I think that hollywood actually purposely throws a couple in here and there just to get some buzz about the illuminati and use it against us as a marketing tool… i even sometimes see new artists throw these in their music videos and… Read more »
ok guys, i have a question, everyone seems to be educated about the illuminati and it seems like the symbols are becoming more and more obvious in films and music videos. but dont you think that by watching for these signs and by analyzing them more we are doing exactly what they want? ratings for this years super-bowl were through the roof, all talk on twitter was about the half time performances… i also sometimes think that some artists purposely throw in a couple of illuminati signs just to be part of this phenomena so they get more viewers and surely, they do cause not only do we believe that they are now part of illuminati but also also spread the word about them… I personally think that hollywood knows that more and more ppl are becoming aware of the illuminati and they are actually manufacturing and producing it because… Read more »

can anyone tell me if they remember this?:

it was a performance by Kid Rock during halftime of, i wanna say, a playoff game last year (early 2011). during the performance, there were a bunch of cheoreographers making a mosaic image of the Amer. flag. then the image was transformed into a pyramid (symbolism). Kid Rock was playing "in america man"(?)

Lady Gaga's latest facebook status…. Happy Valentine's Day everyone. If you have someone special, give them a kiss. If you don't, make a voodoo doll of your ex and cast spells.

This is the best analysis I've read. Thank you for supporting it with facts. America has been lulled to sleep for a while now, but it sounds like the lullaby is getting louder and stronger. WAKE UP CHRISTIANS! Get on your knees and do some battle!

Things are getting really freaking intense guys. Maybe it's simply because I have become more aware of these rituals, but it seems like things are getting much worse and these public rituals are being performed more often and with greater symbolic intensity. It's very frustrating to watch these evil people prance around and dissuade the masses and then come to the conclusion that little can be done about it. To cry wolf would simply deem you as a madman, and to try them as the criminals they are are nigh impossible. I usually don't drag my world views into the picture when it comes to these things, but I wouldn't at all if I wasn't certain there was truth behind it. I grew up as an atheist, went agnostic, got into new-age and Thelema for less than a year, found Christ at 19 and then my life fell apart. That… Read more »

This might put interest,( bit off topic w regards to Maddy though)


Minaj quoted:

She tells Los Angeles DJ Ryan Seacrest, "I didn't go to any parties, I didn't do anything. This performance was it and this is the first performance I'm proud of in my entire career.

"I saw Madonna… sacrifice and how she rehearses and rehearses… Everyone there (at the Super Bowl) was like, 'Oh my God, we've got it!' She was like, 'No, I want you to know this choreography in your sleep.'

"It inspired me so much… to give it my all and put that work in in terms of rehearsals and in terms of bringing my vision to life and in terms of, 'Hey, I'll pay for this performance myself because it means so much to me.'"

Remember in the 80's when she said she "wants to rule the world" during an interview?

I knew it. I said to myself, "I know VC's going to say something about this." It's so damned blatant. From the beginning invocation to the portion where she and Cee-lo were both wearing black ritual robes. I've studied this stuff for years now, and I know that me and everyone else who watched this ritual, gave power to it. This year's super bowl was the most watched in history. If that's true, a hell of a lot of power just what into whatever the heck it was that they were trying to do.

Just what they were trying to do, that is the question. Well, now that this is quelled, VC needs to hurry up and get what happened last night up here… The Nicki Minaj performance. That worries me a bit more than this did. If that doesn't say illuminati/nwo, then I've no idea what does.

This is deep evaluation of what happen at The Super Bowl with Madonnas performance!!!
