The Illuminati Symbolism of Ke$ha’s “Die Young” and How it Ridicules the Indoctrinated Masses


Ke$ha’s “Die Young” is probably one of the most blatant Illuminati videos ever released. While the symbolism is so overt that it is almost ridiculous, there’s an underlying message to the video: Even if you’re dumb enough to embrace all of that Illuminati brainwash, you’re still not part of the elite and therefore, still subject to “Die Young”.

Ke-dollarsign-ha has never been the most inspirational singer around. She started her career as an alcoholic party girl that’s not too strict about personal hygiene (see the Tik Tok line “Before I leave brush ma teeth with a bottle of Jack”) and, for her new album, she turned into some kind of Illuminati witch-type deal. She is far from the only pop star that has gone through this kind of metamorphosis and it was probably pre-planned by her record label. How many singers have gone from an “around-the-way” girl to an Illuminati figurehead? That’s what the industry does.

To the untrained eye, this kind of transformation is usually somewhat subtle … Ke$ha’s Die Young is anything but. In fact, it is one giant clusterfreak of Illuminati symbols. It is so obvious and in-your-face that it forced mainstream music sources such as to “admit” that the video was all about Illuminati symbols (see their article entitled Ke$ha Shouts-Out Illuminati in ‘Die Young’ Video). Interestingly enough, not too long ago, these same sites were calling sites like Vigilant Citizen “batsh*t crazy” for even alluding to the existence of these symbols and describing their meaning. Now, these sites say “Yeah, there are Illuminati symbols” in a matter-of-fact way. What happened to the batsh*t crazy part? However, the mainstream sites still only refer to this concept in an extremely superficial way, not giving any insight on their true meaning and the real Agenda behind it all.

Some might rationalize what is happening by saying: “Ke$ha did it for the LOLs and to make fun of the conspiracies”. This is plausible, but this argument is now surfacing every time a video contains Illuminati symbolism. Are all videos now making fun of conspiracies? In reality, Ke$ha didn’t do anything for any LOLs. She did not direct the video. She is just performing what she is told to perform, like most pop stars. The fact of the matter is: Illuminati symbols are becoming more prevalent because that was the plan all along: To gradually make them part of popular culture. The occult elite is revealing itself and the masses are dancing to their tunes.

The real issue at stake is however not the symbols that are flashed on screen, but the underlying messages that are communicated to the viewers. It is about the Agenda – about making specific values and attitudes cool and desirable to young people. It is about promoting the culture of death (i.e. Die Young), about sexualizing everything, about materialism, about a corrupted and debased brand of spirituality and so forth.

As I watch Ke$ha and her gang fondling themselves, I can’t help but wonder: Is the video making fun of the masses that have been brainwashed by the lifestyle promoted by the elite?  Let’s look at the video.

An Orgy … Of Symbols

The video takes place in Mexico, where Ke$ha and a bunch of cult followers arrive at a cabin. We quickly realize that the group arriving literally worships death.

As the car door opens, a Skull and Bones symbols flashes, representing the cult of death emanating from this car.


Skull and Bones is also the name of Yale’s elite secret society, which includes members such as George Bush Sr., George Dubya and John Kerry.


Is “Evil” written on the side of the car?

The car is, in fact, a hearse – these big black cars used to carry dead people. So, yeah, there’s definitely some death-worshiping going on here.

When the hearse opens, we see Ke$ha in a black veil, posing as if she was some sort of sexual religious statue. She is then carried on the shoulders of her gang of mimbos, as in cultures where people carry statues of the Virgin Mary on the streets.

While this is happening, a bunch of symbols is flashed on the screen. Vigilant Citizen readers probably instantly recognized them.

Ke$ha wearing an All-Seeing Eye ring while hiding one eye. Just making sure you understand who she is working for.
Inverted crosses (a symbol of the Church of Satan) flash about five thousand times during the video. They’re working very hard to make that Satanic crap trendy.
In another scene, Ke$ha and her gang play at pulling tarot cards (to determine who’s the sacrificial lamb of the night?). Ke$ha pulls the “Devil” card and everybody bursts into laughter. So much fun is to be had with Satanic symbols!

Looking at the way Ke$ha’s gang acts, the only word that comes to mind to describe them is “not too bright”. What is the first thing they do when they enter the cabin they drove so far to reach? They trash it. I realize that trashing things is a cool, rock star thing to do, but even drunk rock stars know to trash a place when they LEAVE, not when they arrive and actually NEED a facility.

“This place is too nice. Let’s destroy it and then have sex on broken furniture. Yeah, we’re idiots”.

After mindlessly wrecking the place, there is one thing left to do: Mindlessly dance to a generic pop song. Of course, the dancing quickly turns into an orgy, all of which happens with a bunch of occult symbols all around.

Ke$ha sits a the throne of the “orgy”, under a pentacle. While this symbol is not associated with Satanism, it is used in occult rituals, hinting that there’s a Sex-Magick aspect behind all of this.
While this is happening, Ke$ha does the one-eye sign, a way of saying that this sex and death worshiping cult that is full of suggestible idiots (representing the masses) is sponsored by the Illuminati industry.
…the video is also apparently also sponsored by the new Windows Phone thingie. Do like Ke-dollarsign-ha and buy it now! She then sends a text message to “Animals”, which is the name given to Ke$ha fans. Animals. Almost as flattering as Little Monsters.

Throughout the video, symbols are flashed on screen, mainly triangles that are either upright or reversed. In esoteric symbolism, upright triangles represent the masculine principle while reverse triangles represent the feminine principle. The combination of both represents the union of opposites and, in more “human” terms, sexual intercourse. So, while people are frolicking in the video, symbols convey the concept of Sex Magick on an almost subconscious level.

In case all of the stuff happening on screen is not enough to make you understand young viewers that sex is happening there, shots of wolves doing it might light a bulb above their heads. Also, is that a way to give a “shout-out” to bestiality – one of the “guilty pleasures” of the sick Illuminati elite?

The orgy goes on until cops arrive and start shooting. When this happens, Ke$ha walks decidedly towards the armed cops.

Even if you’re dumb enough to be brainwashed by Illuminati propaganda (to the point of having an Illuminati symbol right on your ass), you are not exempt from police state oppression. You might be doing what the elite wants you to do, but that doesn’t mean you’re part of it.
Just making sure you understand who’s sponsoring this video.

Since the song is called Die Young, we are lead to think that Ke$ha is shot and killed by the police. Die Young is therefore yet another video that depicts police state oppression and violence as normal, even cool. The moral of the story? Even if you have been thoroughly brainwashed by Illuminati propaganda and have lived your life according to the debased culture promoted by mass media, you are still a disposable pawn according to the elite. You might believe you are a “rebel” going against “The Man” but you’re actually playing right in their hands. Far from being “enlightened”, these symbols and this way of life are conceived and manufactured by the elite to dumb-down the masses, in order to make them suggestible and manipulable.

The culture of death that is now prevalent in mass media is extremely present in this song. The phrase “We’re gonna die young” is repeated countless times (in an upbeat matter) as if to drill in teenager’s skulls that human life is not valuable. This is right on par with the elite’s depopulation Agenda.

In Conclusion

Readers of this site might be realizing that the symbolism that has been pointed out for years is becoming increasingly prevalent and obvious in mass media. The process is gradual yet very noticeable and the concept of Revelation of the Hierarchy is in full force in the entertainment business. It has been said that the best way of hiding something is in plain sight. The Illuminati symbolism we see in popular culture is becoming so prevalent that it is BECOMING popular culture. While some might claim that “it’s a trend” or that “Ke$ha is making fun of it”, they don’t see the important reversal is happening here: Trends used to come from the streets to then be picked up and reflected by mass media; Nowadays, trends are CREATED by mass media and forced on the world through repetition and omnipresence.

There is, however, more at stake here than simply the presence of symbols in music videos. There are tons of videos with the same message and symbolism as Die Young – all promoting the same Agenda. Brainwashed by thousands of hours of music videos, young people become the cult followers in Ke$ha’s video, pushed to live pointless, self-destructive lives based on the gratification of their lowest impulses. Indulging in one’s animalistic instincts has always been considered to be the opposite of reaching spiritual enlightenment – and that’s exactly what the elite wants. If the masses were to gain enough awareness to avoid the traps and pitfalls set up by the system, the virtual enslavement caused by debt and mass-media mind control would crumble.

The way of life “glamorized” by the elite causes people to be lost, devoid of strong values and suggestible to mass-media propaganda. However, in the end, even if they do exactly what is expected from them, the masses are still perceived by the elite as a brainless cattle that need to be put in its place by a strong police force. As Ke$ha and her fans mindless yell “we’re gonna die young”, thinking they are cool and edgy, they actually unknowingly celebrate their own servitude to a tune created by their rulers. Go Animals!

Good points VC. Just like these modern disposable pawns, Judas was never "rewarded" by Satan for betraying Jesus. He only got 30 pieces of silver, then was abandoned – as he's no longer useful to the devil – and left to commit suicide.

It's also no coincidence that the official music video duration is 3 mins 33 secs. Look into the Illuminati meaning of 333.

True, how about (3 × 2) × 3? It is 666, the Triple Six symbol.

I know it isnt mentioned, but actually, during the video, they sacrafice and kill one of the girls. She lays dead in a circle on the ground. They show the wolves attacking each other at the same time since it is graphic. But literally they kill a girl as a sacrafice in the video. Watch closely. I literally felt so uneasy watching this video that i had to stop it around 1:30. This video is BAD and just like it says, EVIL!

“I hear your heart beat to the beat of the drums”

A statement about war/infowar happening while the millenials do nothing.

“Oh, what a shame that you came here with someone
So while you’re here in my arms”

Promoting cheating.

“Like it’s the last night of our lives (uh huh)
We’ll keep dancing ’til we die”

Yet more blatant disregard from the youth.

“Let’s make the most of the night like we’re gonna die young”

It’s surprising to admit, but this song really does read like both a mockery and a justification for wasting your life and dying young, which is what the elite want so that they have no opposition moving forward.

I watched the video and it seems to me that the building they enter is a church (only without croos, maybe it would bee to blatant, if it was there). It would make a sense, destroy the furnishing and desecrate it with a magic ritual…

People who don't believe this is happening in the world are just ignorant. Why are artist trying so hard to incorporate these symbols? Why bother brushing it off? So f****d up

this illuminati symbol is appearing because the end of the world is coming!!

About freaking time.

They break into an abandoned church not a cabin as the website says!

Down with illuminaty!

Awesome article

From the official video:
Directed By: Darren Craig for The Uprising Creative
Produced by: Jonathan Craven for The Uprising Creative
Editor: Shahana Khan
VFX: Ryan Paterson & Jesse Austin and Mike Orr

We all know Kesha is a pawn.
The above are the people responsible for this vile and anti human imagery.

Also, the song duration is 3:33 , favorite illuminati number sequence

I hate the Illuminati they can go get f****d, they're all through music, tv and everyday life. People are blind not to see the truth, and maybe this generation will notice? Or will they go deeper into these lies… You can count on me and my friends because we know about this stuff and pay attention to omens and stuff. I'm actually about to do a spell to make myself stronger and smarter, hopefully people will notice the illuminati and stop them.
Peace out!

Kesha who is controlled by Illuminati promotes sex and wild lifestyle. Fun., the famous band nowaday also collaborated with LGBT organization. Reference from Wikipedia for Fun.

It's not the actual symbols that have the "power" in them, it's what the symbols do in our minds. The first language/s were just symbols, usually in the shape of what they represented, which were changed/forgotten at the tower of Babel incident, and now the "Elite" have rebuilt the tower of Babel, and are using the original symbology language to speak to our (sheeple) subconscious minds, to convey a message and/or command, reprogramming the viewer subconsciously. The only defence against this is to become conscious of the symbology, and therefore keeping it out of our subconscious (hopefully), it's only those who go into a mindless trance while watching tv/cinema etc., who get the full force of the symbols, as they bypass their conscious and goes strait into their subconscious. Waking up (being called) is relatively easy, trying to keep awake long enough to be chosen is not so easy. He… Read more »

I've traced hidden subliminal Illuminaty symbols back to the 80's. Folks it's been happening for a while, but now they don't try to hide it and that's scary for some reason..I dunno exactly why tho. In the older videos its just a screen blip, u pause it at just the right time and wallah a big all seeing eye, or or triangle with the eye, or the horns etc. Why would a band work so hard to "make it" and then allow someone else to deface thr work?? it's odd

It's scary how prevalent they have become!! its like they're saying " I bet that we can shove it right in their faces and they wont even mind or notice!!". The symbols are everywhere now, you can't visit a fashion site without noticing the all seeing eye on T-shirts. I don't know how far they will go !

Oh my God, this music video is just wow. Wow Illuminati, they aren't even stealthy about it. They have nothing to hide at this point. Symbols are literally handed to you and they're so explicitly expressed. I think everybody would think that something is clearly wrong about this video and there's symbols of Satan all over the f*****g place. I mean before I have to give them credit, they used to be good at hiding these types of things.

Anyone catch the Baphamut head on the trunk door of the hearse?

I am just looking at this post now and I was wondering when this song came out. And I saw that it came out on the 30th of November, Just 2 weeks Sandy Hook Shooting. And I can't help but I wonder if this song was a little interlude to what was to come with the shooting. With the signs being so obviously in our faces now, and trying to control gun populations. It seems to be a set up. Esp. When her first part of the verse seems to be about a young innocence and then going into the extrememly sexual second verse.

I can't agree enough your article Completely hits it on the head and takes the words out of my mouth. The bottom line is despite the overt symbols it is about the Agenda which represents debauchery, and a sort of lose your soul and go straight to hell agenda.

Someone said that "if you want to see the devil, disguise yourself as a devil and look into a mirror"

This woman is just giving herself to impersonnate evil.

To get rid of darkness, do not chase it but instead inroduce light.

I only saw this video last night on a music channel. That's why I am here. Even I was surprised at how blatant the symbolism is. This is the most obvious push I have seen to turn humanity into the 'undead'. Thanks for posting.

My soul is crying for stuff like this.. I know that God is crying too. This is part of his plan that everything comes to good at the end. People have to know about Jesus not about satan! Please don't buy illuminati products to your childrens and of course for you! All what we need is Gods Furious Love!!
Blessings, Henry from Finland

I must add to the video screenshots. There is a part where, during all the contineously flashing images, an eagle appears for a quite a three to four seconds and flies off.
Eagle, being an Egyption god, comes with a lot of history relating to the symbolisms of 'Illumnati'. And I might add, eagle was famously known for 'Ra' the egyption god having its head for a face.
And yeah. I AM FREAKED OUT AT THE GROWING "CASUALNESS" OF ILLUMNATI CONCEPTS! They used to be a threat and now its like the normal freaking thing in our socities!

Idk… This sh#?@*t is so obvious… They’re planning something

Well best strategy,. spoiling the popularity of pops and Christianity . then producing such a symbolic religious of sexual freedom. many people like to try it.. I .I hated the way these satanic video clip offended Christ and holy religion.
they are working hard for the removal of religious beliefs. much worse humanity.

I swear, this is almost comical how occultic and illuminatically saturated this video is. All I can say that as a young person, I'm looking at the blueprints of the death of Christianity right in the eyes. I'm almost afraid to think of what will be popular a good 20 years down the road. Thanks for the article VC. Stay vigilant!

After the school shootings she now says she was "forced to sing" those lyrics. I wonder?

When I first listened to this song weeks ago, I felt something very weird about it. It was the uncomfortable feeling of hearing her repeating about dying young. After reading your article and seeing a video of one of her live concerts and fans cheering to her die young lyrics, it just felt disturbing. There was something about that song that really made me uneasy. I live in Connecticut and heard them playing this song on the radio this morning. This was right after a local morning show were having discussions about the horrific events that happened in Newtown. It hit a nerve and I had to revisit your site and view the actual video. I noticed the skull and bones (Yale University in Connecticut), the evil written on the side of the car (Connecticut Governor in a speech about evil visiting Newtown), the small town ( Newtown, population around… Read more »

Its sickening and true, as soon as I heard about Connecticut I listened to this trashy track on the radio and automatically linked them, just like that lil wayne video and the batman tragedy.

Thanks for the confirmation that I am not alone with my observations and suspicions.

i want the old Kesha this Kesha is soo Illuminati and Fake

I love this site, and all its in-depth analysis. I just really wish it would dig in videogames too :/ games like Bioshock (I would LOOOVE an analysis on the upcomming Bioshock Infinite) Assassins Creed and Deus-Ex. Theres a lot to dig in to.

Bioshock = Steampunk <3

Ok, so we all understand this sick illuminati stuff. Jeshuah (Jesus' true name) told us thousands of years ago that satan owns this world. What are we gonna do about it? We don't do anything. Do you all worry about being on "their list?" Well, you should not worry, because you are allready on it. What are we gonna do about it? We don't do anything. Some of us sit alone thinking about this world that we live in. We feel really alone and disqusted. What can we do about it? We CAN do something… You and I have always been here, and we have a right to this world too. God renewed this world for US…YOU and ME. I don't understand why we just let this EVIL jerk take it over. Satan is no different than us, except that he chooses to be evil, and of course, he is… Read more »
I've looked at this web site after a fellow worker at my job told me about it, and this is all very interesting. My mother told me about this group of some of the highest minds having these meetings right after world war 2, she told me the name but I forget the details I'm afraid , but any way the agenda of these great minds was how do you weaken and attack the masses ? They came up with first attack the base of society – attack the importance of the family, belittle faith religion, morals, thus the masses will be weakened , lost, left to their most base animalistic selves . My mother didn't call them the Illuminati , it was something else. I find it funny how these music videos and all the other stupid trash glamourize boozing, "partying" – How glamourous it is to look bloated… Read more »

I hadn't seen this video yet (I usually never watch pop song videos unless/until they're covered here, actually!), but the first time I heard this song, its bizarre, almost too-obvious message actually made my jaw drop. Even more than any other song released in recent years, this one is just THE MOST. The fact that these sorts of songs have become such parodies of themselves would be funny if it weren't for the fact that kids and pre-teens are ingesting the messages without the benefit of a mental filter.

Work your tail off suffering for low wages and die young so they don't have to pay you a retirement or provide you long term care?

These songs and videos are meant for the kids. They're not worried about us per say. We're technically already controlled. Controlling the future is the bigger picture.

But you see, that's the trick: To normalize all of this until you think "Oh its just marketing"

Its not. They've put their symbols on and around us for hundreds of years. For a reason.

Speaking of these symbols… I recently tried a logo making program, where many templates were provided. I'd say about 80% of them were based on typical Illuminati symbols, with small alterations. What a good way to get as many people as possible to associate their businesses or sites with them.

I agree with the approach on this video; hypnotised followers are being ridiculed. Even when it just comes down to music. It's so sad to see them gather by the thousands and submit to the will of whoever takes the stage. These so-called artists can get large crowds to shout obscenities, immitate signs or chant anything. It feels as though they're training animals. And their fans go home thinking the respect they have for ''artists'' is mutual.

Reminds me of this warning from Isaiah (5:20):

Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;

Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;

Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

we are so there…

It's so overt, it's covert and that's part of the plan. What was once absurd (even those websites dissing Vigilant) is now becoming mainstream. When something becomes mainstream it is a crime against humanity to go against it (try sharing that you don't have a facebook account or a cell phone – you're pitied and labeled a social misfit). When the absurd becomes mainstream that's when society takes it's final head-long dive into depravity.

Bravo! Loud applause! What a great article, VG. And it's very sad to see that we are indeed part of the "dumb masses". We know, but we don't act. But, just like everything else in this world, what rises will once fall. & what sleeps will once be awake. We have to wake up for them to fall!

@rizzo u say ur neither a satanist or christian and ur thankful? In other words u don't believe in spiritual beings!I can assure u that u suffer from a disease that has engulfed most of the world-ungratefulness. The human being is the most ungrateful creature under the sun. After making us and filling the whole world with good things for our sake(the same things which are receipts of God's existence) we still spit in his face and say he doesn't exist. The same God goes further and tells us of wicked being called satan; yet we are still thankful that we don't know. Others try to bear witness and bring out concrete evidence of the existence of the occult-we r still grateful we don't know. Jesus was right when he said"if they don't hear moses and the prophets neither will they be persuaded,though one rose from the dead"(Luke 16v31). Pipo… Read more »

VC you are right!! I just recently started reading and I agree 100% with you. You said what I have been thinking for years. Slowly over the years I have been turned off by these celebs. I couldn't really put my finger on it, with everything you have said the lightbulb has turned on!!!

Don't declare that openly because most of them are infatuated by celebrities & their lifestyle, hence they might think you are getting jealous or something.

When I first saw the video I laughed out loud at the amount of symbolism. I was literally knocked off my chair. My head felt crowded with the sheer load of crap those bastards are laying right in front of us.

I can't believe most people don't see the symbolism in this. They're literally blind.

Completely satanic, werewolves, full moon probably in August when they do all their cr*p. I feel sorry for this generation and what they'll go through in their lives.

Could it be that, since the whole illuminati thing is coming more into view they would make a video like thos and say its just her 'mocking' the illuminati.. to continue to keep their secret society secret ?

I'll also add that Ke$ha seems like a person poised for sacrifice, a desperate attempt by someone who is no longer useful to the "cause". Her popularity is waning, this is obviously being used to draw attention to her.

Predictive programming. "As in the days of Noah…" They're basically telling the youth culture what they have to look forward to, so they might as well divert themselves with sadistic and soul-destroying pursuits, because life is meaningless and you actually have no power to change anything because the State will oppose you. The State is the ultimate authority.

Lord, break off their allure, show them for the vampires, succubi, and zombies that they are. Reveal their dark heart and let people turn to your love and redemption!

i want to run away .. i just want to leave out of this world

im not talkin suicidal though

Ok then all, if you dont think there is anything to the re-occurring symbols and actions, then what are they doing there?

I have always remained open minded on this btw. (Explanations by VC are plausible).

I see the effect media has had on people on a daily basis, the half-truth news is gospel, and what is this 'gang-nam style' s**t, seriously??

I thought: fair play to this bloke for making some money (in this day and age), but there is absolutely no talent evident and the 'song' is mindless pop-vomit, see the new 'fad' that every idiot is 'trending' about.

If i remember rightly, (before i shook my head in disgust with a smile on my face), the president of south korea even praised this gang nam twat, i saw it on BBC news ….
