Music Industry Exposed Part 3 – Black Magic and Dark Hidden Influences

The hierarchy of influence:

Artists, labels, company owners, international councils and secret societies, the powers of darkness

One might ask whether all the darkness witnessed in the music industry today can be attributed to the artists themselves or whether there is a hierarchy of influence which leads to the overwhelming promotion of negative values. Let’s take a closer look.

The artists

The "world's richest rockstars", many of whom have promoted negative values.

It may seem like pretty much all artists nowadays are interested in the dark side of the occult, but is this really the case? Why are we bombarded repeatedly by the same songs by the same artists that seem to be pushing the same agenda? Are we witnessing a phenomena where artists who do obviously have an interest to varying degrees in the occult are promoted and lauded throughout society while those who want their morals to remain intact are overlooked and discarded?

What we don’t often see are the stars who speak out about the industry. Those that do are often ostracised, ridiculed or worse.

When grammy award singer Lauren Hill spoke out about oppression in the music industry a judge ordered her to undergo counselling for her “conspiracy theories”.

When Michael Jackson – who held a deep interest in the occult – died prematurely many drew the conclusion that he had not died by accident, and that his death was seen as necessary as he was beginning to expose what was really going on in the industry. Of some coincidence, Michael Jackson’s doctor Conrad Murray, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter as a result of Michael Jackson’s fatal drug overdose, was a Freemason. He only served 2 years of a 4 year sentence.

Not too long ago Ke$ha publicly stated that she was forced to sing Die Young, which displayed a lot of occult symbolism in the music video.

Recording artist Nicole Scherzinger said in an interview with The Independent:

“This is such a tough industry, you know. To make it, you really have to sell your soul to the devil”. Source

When asked if she had sold her soul she replied:

“No, I haven’t. That’s probably why I haven’t quite reached the top of my mountain. I mean, where’s my Tony Award, my Grammy, my Oscar? Why don’t I have any of those things yet?” Ibid

Many other stars have made very revealing statements about the industry:

“Man! I really wish I could tell you guys what the industry really is and what stars are apart of destroying this world. The stars who worship satan,and those who have killed to get the respect they have now. You’d be verrrry surprise. Some of your favorite people pretend to worship God but they only do that to save face. Or seem innocent.

Satan was head of music in heaven. He uses influential people…to help influence the world. Think about that. Once u make a certain amount of money. Just know that that’s when they ask u to join. To get in you have accept the beast, worship. Once you join they assist u with ur career.make u huge.only if u agree and obey to destroy Gods word.and his children.

Ppl listen and pay attention. Its a war going on right now between Good and Evil. Evil will rule this world for a min. The people that have this power are the people that RULE the whole world. I’m done I won’t say anymore before I get in trouble”.

– Singer Tiffany Evans Source

“I think there’s a very dark and very sinister part of the entertainment business and I think it’s very visible … This is something that a lot of people don’t look at … there is a [time as an artist] where there’s going to be a choice … With God and the industry, it’s really dark. The dark side is having to get in, there’s a certain submission you need to have. Just like a gang [initiation], so to speak. You might have to do something against your moral code. I’m not saying that it’s always this way, but when you’re someone that is young and you’re coming up in the industry and you really don’t have a grip on your morals it can be very dark.”

– R&B singer Omarion Source

“There’s forces that are going on that I don’t think a lot of m***********s that make music today are aware of,” he says. “It’s deep. I’ve felt it. I’ve felt other forces puling at me … This is a very powerful medium that we are involved in … I learned at an early age that what we were doing in the choir was just as important as the preacher. It was a ministry in itself. We could stir the pot, you know? The stage is our pulpit, and you can use all of the energy and that music and the lights and the colors and the sound. But you know, you’ve got to be careful.”

– R&B singer D’Angelo Source

It is clear that many artists have an interest to some degree in the occult. Ke$ha has an eye tattooed on her hand, wears upside down pentagrams in her fashion choices (assuming they are her fashion choices) and has costumes inspired by the “all-seeing third eye”. Katy Perry participated in some spell casting at the Salem Witch Walk and has joked about wanting to join the Illuminati. Lady Gaga, beyond everything already discussed in part one and two of this series, talked about swearing to Lucifer live in an interview on the Jimmy Kimmel show. Jay Z owns a clothing company called “Roc-A-Wear” that use many occult symbols in their designs.

The music industry appears to support and promote artists like this with an interest in the dark side of the occult who are willing to support and promote darkness in their work. What might artists get for promoting the values of darkness? Fame, riches, influence, airtime? The MTV poster shown above may give us some indication both of the source and outcome of promoting dark agendas.

Whilst coming from a religious perspective, this quote from a letter to URB magazine by rapper Prodigy may also indicate why some artists might be willing to support a dark agenda:

“(Jay-Z) J.Z. knows the truth, but he chose sides with evil in order to be accepted in the corporate world. (Jay-Z) J.Z. conceals the truth from the black community and the world, and promotes the lifestyle of the beast instead” Source

Taken in isolation, are the artists themselves influential enough to immerse our culture in darkness? Not without others pulling strings and making decisions behind the scenes it seems.

Producers, Directors, Stylists, Choreographers

Just as artists who seem drawn to the dark side are promoted, many of the most in-demand producers, directors, stylists and choreographers also have a recurring theme of dark occult symbolism in the work they produce. Which makes one wonder what came first, whether they are in demand because they’re happy to support the cause of darkness, or if the darkness itself is the reason why they are in demand in the first place?

Let’s look at a few examples to see how deep this goes.

Jonas and Bea Akerlund

Jonas and Bea Akerlund, who have worked as music clip director and stylist respectively with many artists who use dark references – including Lady Gaga, Madonna, Rihanna and more –  appear to be practising Satanists. Jonas’ website contains upside-down pentagrams and the loading image is the head of a demonic looking goat akin to the symbol of baphomet – a symbol now synonymous with evil. His previous band Bathory – who’s name was inspired by an infamous serial killer countess, and who used the goat’s head as their logo – sang about having a place reserved in hell and being in conspiracy with Satan. Jonas’s wife Bea is the stylist behind the dark costumes used by many popular stars including the widely critiqued “Baphomet” costume of Madonna at the 2012 Superbowl. Most recently Bea styled Madonna’s costume worn at the rather demonic 2015 Grammy performance.

Hannah Lux Davis

Up and coming female director Hannah Lux Davis also appears to have a intense interest in the occult. She directed the video clip Love Me for Lil Wayne, which includes subliminal images of Lil Wayne as a demon, and even includes a subliminal shot of a demon shaped head in a lighter flame (remember what we said before about the impact of negative subliminal messaging?).

She also directed Cher Lloyd’s With Ur Love, a video clip about women bewitching men and the use of magic to create a golem (an animated model, usually made from clay), an inclusion that indicates more than a passing interest in magic (interestingly look at the hand sign that Cher Lloyd makes when singing she is on top of the world). Davis was also responsible for directing the video for Super Turnt Up where Ciara is dressed in boots and a cloak adorned with the references to the Golden Dawn mentioned above.

Darren Craig – Uprising Creative

Ke$ha is another star well known for overloading her videos and performances with occult symbolism including the all-seeing eye, inverted crosses and inverted pentagrams, often hidden or displayed in a subliminal way. Could it be that Darren Craig, the co-director of her video for Die Young is the influence behind a lot of that symbolism?

It is rumoured that Ke$ha had a relationship with Darren Craig,  a point that becomes important when we begin to look at Craig’s occult interests and the possible effects that may have had on Ke$ha if they shared a close connection. Craig works for a company called Uprising Creative. Their official website displays the number of the beast, and says that 27 indentured servants work for them (and that they are out of their minds). This is a screenshot from their homepage. Who are they indentured to?

From the mainpage of the Uprising Creative website. "Anything is possible" (says the Beast to his indentured servants?)

From the mainpage of the Uprising Creative website. “Anything is possible” “create and destroy” (says the Beast to his indentured servants?).


The company’s CEO appeared in a picture on facebook wearing a baphomet-style goat mask, and the company has produced a line of shoes known as “hooves” complete with inverted pentagrams. The shoes come in three styles: “The Beast”, “White Witch” and “The Black Soul”.

On Twitter, Craig refers to images of his children as “demon spawn” and “demon seed” and made the following tweet about a video that repeats over and over “I want to kill everyone, Satan is good, Satan is my pal”.



Beyond Ke$ha’s Die Young video, Uprising Creative have also worked with Snoop Dogg who claimed in his autobiography to have agreed to sell his soul to the devil in exchange for fame and riches, and groups like the Black Eyed Peas who promote a lot of “Illuminati” symbolism in their work.

Chris Applebaum

Chris Applebaum, the other co-director for Ke$ha’s Die Young video – who interestingly withdrew his name from the credits (so people couldn’t connect his work there with other dark videos?) – also directed Rhianna’s Umbrella video clip which includes digitally-altered demonic subliminal messages. The lyrics refer to a “Rain Man”: an entity referenced by many artists in a way which makes it seem they see him as some form of demon. The two altered images are of a baphomet style head in a water formation, and – if you look closely – in the shape of a demon’s head made from Rihanna’s body position (which is anatomically impossible) when she is inside a huge pyramid. This image was also displayed on her website. Alterations like this are a strong reminder that nothing we see in video clips is accidental – it has all been filmed, altered and edited to a precise degree to convey a particular message.

Steven Klein and Nathan Crowley

As well as Jonas Akerlund, Lady Gaga has worked with some other interesting figures. Her video clip for Alejandro was directed by photographer Steven Klein. It contains many inverted symbols and was considered by many to be blasphemous.

In response to criticism about the dark nature of the clip, Klein stated:

“The religious symbolism is not meant to denote anything negative, but represents the character’s battle between the dark forces of this world and the spiritual salvation of the Soul,” Klein wrote. “Thus at the end of the film, she chooses to be a nun, and the reason her mouth and eyes disappear is because she is withdrawing her senses from the world of evil and going inward towards prayer and contemplation.”

Klein added that the scene in which Gaga ingests the rosary beads is meant to represent “the desire to take in the holy.” Source

Is it possible that Klein – who not too long ago, photographed model Kate Moss depicted both as a demonic nun and baphomet – is trying to gloss over the truth to protect his public persona?

Klein has also worked with Madonna on her Re-invention world tour – which was initially going to be called the Whore of Babylon tour – and directed a promotional commercial for Lady Gaga’s “Fame” perfume which has horror movie tones and included the work of production stylist Nathan Crowley who is related by blood to Aleister Crowley.

Ceremonies and Performances

Next to video clips possibly the most public promotion of dark values in music is through award ceremonies such as the Grammys, the MTV VMAs and the Superbowl half time show.

Click to see full size.

In recent years at the MTV VMAs we have seen Lady Gaga appear in an act that has been interpreted as a blood sacrifice and Pink re-enact a masonic ritual. At the Grammy’s we have witnessed the possession and exorcism of Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry burnt at the stake as a Knights Templar in a ritual watched over by four huge demons, and most recently Madonna’s 2015 performance of “Living for Love” where, dressed in black and red (colours often associated with the forces of darkness), she dances surrounded by dancers with devil horns. What do Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry have in common? Laurieann Gibson.

2015 Grammy awards

2015 Grammy awards

Gibson worked to realise the vision of the Grammy performances of Minaj and Perry in choreography and creative direction. She has also worked with Lady Gaga as choreographer, creative director and video clip director, in her own words modelling Gaga’s image after Madonna – who’s work has been known to reference the “Illuminati”. Gibson worked with Gaga since she was signed to Interscope Records in 2007, a brand that as we’ll see has the highest concentration of acts promoting dark values.

Here’s what Gibson had to say about Nicki Minaj’s Grammy performance:

“For me, it was about the theatrical aspect of being able to create something like that. It’s about always inspiring people and extract that negative from them and believe in what they can do and empower themselves in a positive way and not be afraid to look at those things that are evil.” Source

Despite describing it as a fight between good and evil, and saying there was nothing negative in the performance or mocking religion, the Catholic Church disagrees.

In another interview with Rolling Stone she said:

“A choreographer deals with the movement that you create,” Gibson explains, “and with a creative director it’s about the story, the stage, the lighting, the costuming, executing someone’s idea, choosing how far to go or how little to go, and blending it so that you feel it, you’re emotionally effected.”

Asked if she feels she is molding the pop stars she works with, Gibson says, “Molding them from a place of love and wanting to see their dreams come true. With Lady Gaga I really stretched myself as a creative director, and because I was with this artist from before she got signed I was able to really take control of the opportunity and execute as a creative director.” Source

One wonders what dreams (nightmares?) she is helping to come true for pop stars.

Interestingly Gibson, who co-directed Gaga’s music video for her song “Judas”, once said in an interview that “she almost walked away from co-directing the music video because of its heavy use of religious themes.

‘I was like, “Listen, I don’t want lightning to strike me!’ ” Gibson told the Hollywood Reporter.” Source

Gibson played a pivotal role in Gaga’s Monsters Ball tour where Gaga’s backup dancers wore all seeing eye symbols and Gaga deliberately made the hand sign of the beast. She has collaborated on videos that include negative symbolism such as Lady Gaga’s Telephone and Alejandro, providing choreography and creative input despite professing to be Catholic.

Is her quote above another example of an industry figure trying to protect their reputation while at the same time helping to fill the world with darkness?

It’s important not to look at the performances of artists in these types of ceremonies in isolation, but to look at the overall trend and direction in these shows.

A clear example is the most recent Grammy awards which appeared to be dedicated to all things dark. They opened with AC/DC playing Highway to Hell, while the audience wore glowing devil horns that had been handed out. At one point during Madonna’s performance two huge demon looking figures were projected behind her, looking down over the performance and audience, a scene reminiscent of the four huge demons watching over Katy Perry’s performance last year. (Two years prior to this performance Katy Perry warned that her music was “about to get real f****** dark.”). But there are also many other examples such as Jack Black’s prayer to the dark lord Satan at the 2012 MTV VMAs for the continued success of the artists in attendance.

It is obvious that a lot of careful planning has gone into the production of these shows and that they are darkly inspired. Award ceremonies and other mainstream performances are a powerful medium to promote the message of darkness to millions of unsuspecting viewers who probably see it as nothing more than a night’s “fun” entertainment.

About David Arkyn

David has a deep interest in spiritual development, but has discovered there are many forces in the world working to keep people asleep. His recent interest has been researching the psychological tactics and techniques used to limit people's spiritual potential, writing about his discoveries here at The Conscious Reporter.


  1. Thanks for digging down into the rabbit hole of all this David, it’s shocking to see all these connections the modern music industry has with dark influences. Those quotes from Bowie and Osbourne are pretty scary.

  2. Yeah, thanks David, that’s a great part III of this series.

    Although being familiar with many of the concepts discussed here, you really fleshed them out in these articles. Did the research, compiled it all, managed to explain it clearly and shed some light on these sinister happenings!

    These dark forces having an influence, channelling through music artists and onto the huge masses of people in such strong ways through music….. it’s quite jarring. This music, these symbols, the videos, are played everywhere and have an influence on almost everyone.

    Although many just like the pleasure of the music/beats. There are also many who actually like the whole act or things the artists send across. They’re big fans! But ignorant of the more serious and real side of what’s going on.
    But being a fan of one of these artists can also mean being a fan (or in a way a supporter or worshipper) of the energies and forces that channel through the idols and come from behind the artists.

    To see how much these popstars are promoted in the media in such an unhindered way (without seemingly any voice of people with morals on it) is horrible. Just running free and influence teens and children.

    So I think it’s great that you did your deep research into this whole thing, and I wish everyone would know about this, or know more about this, especially teens/children and their caretakers.

  3. Thanks for all your helpful comments. Lucia, I agree with you – there seems to be a great deal of negligence and unaccountability from artists who knowingly participate in pushing this type of music/agenda out there and understand the adverse effects they have on their unsuspecting

    Ella, I felt the same way about the CDs from my youth and had a hard time letting go of them but it was the best and most liberating thing I did. It’s incredible to see so many variations of negative and subliminal messages that these poor kids are exposed to now a days. It’s worse then ever before.

    David I totally agree that vibrations from certain types of music have a huge impact on the emotional states. I remember times when I was upset or depressed, the first thing I would reach out for was my Radiohead albums (it’s mostly melancholic music) because I felt it was the perfect accompaniment to my misery.

    Roy, thanks for the feedback. That’s pretty frightening to know that so many people at those events are unwittingly exposing themselves to be hypnotized by those dark influences.

  4. You have gathered a lot of facts and done some thorough research David. Despite the long read, I feel very rewarded, it’s definitely worth it. When I was reading through your article, I felt guided. You describe the various celebrities and the symbols they use. Their producers, directors and choreographers, who set up their shows and performances, to the record labels who promote their music and their links to the occult groups and their rituals.

    It’s a real eye opener to see the information together. Having all these bits of information about the music industry can be confusing, like looking at various pieces of the puzzle which on their own don’t make sense but when they are put together they’ll display a more complete picture. A picture I find very disturbing to see and I question how have we let things come this far? I really wish people do wake up to this kind of information and be more wise to what kind of music and entertainment they consume.

    I like how you end with a group of people coming together to make others aware and I find this site to be an awesome platform to start off with. Thanks again.

  5. Nicely put together, David. I think you pieced a lot of things together that are so frustratingly hidden in plain sight. Like the owl trend — go into any store and it’s the coolest thing to sport an owl on everything, especially a one eyed owl/winking owl. Seems very innocent in a way and they are very beautiful creatures so it’s easy to love products that feature them, but it’s obvious that there is an agenda behind the saturated widespread use of owls as a symbol. Same goes for many others you’ve touched on here.

    I’ve seen the bohemian grove ceremony video some years ago and it really had such a strong impact on me seeing all these “powerful” people partaking in that ceremony. In a way it’s a public heralding of the very notable presence of these dark powers in politics, the art scene, and the finances of the world — all things that affect everyone on a massive scale.

    That Jay-Z masking video is just crazy. I can’t believe anyone would “innocently”/”unknowingly” include that in their work… Follow the money, as they say…

  6. Really interesting read! Some extraordinary discoveries you’ve made through your research David. I was especially intrigued by the fact that Napoleon created the company that now owns the music labels of some of the world’s most popular and influential (American) singers.

  7. This is the best article I’ve read on exposing the dark side of the music industry. There’s no conspiracy here – it’s quite clear that it’s an orchestrated effort to promote evil. The sad thing is that this is what’s loved and popular in the world.

  8. This is an excellent analysis of the darker forces in the music industry and what’s behind them David.

    The most remarkable thing about it all is how it’s hiding in plain site.

    It reminds me of a letter I’ve seen on a few different sites –

    It is the anonymous testimony of a music executive who attended a secretive meeting in 1991, where plans to deliberately influence the direction of rap music to promote criminality were discussed.

    One of the motives described was to increase the prison population for the benefit of the private prison industry and the individuals who own them.

    But it takes no leap of imagination to see the impact of glorifying crime and violence on an unsuspecting population, and furthermore it supports the claim that the trends in music are highly choreographed and centrally orchestrated with very specific and malevolent intentions.

  9. Incredible article David. The connections you’ve made about who’s behind all of this are startling. I think your point about being labelled a conspiracy theorist is really important. It feels like being between a rock and a hard place whenever trying to even just discuss the possibilities of what is really going on out there because of that potential label. Despite that difficulty, I feel like it’s really valid and important to try and get this information out there, so people can consider what they’re being exposed to, and why. So thanks for this series.

  10. This resonates with my personal experience with music. So much good music doesn’t make it to the mainstream and anything that can’t be controlled by the authorities gets shut down. It’s a crime really.

  11. David, your thoroughly excellent expose on the current music interesting is as interesting as it is confronting and shocking. I am truly amazed at how all this is just so ‘out there’, so open for all to see. There is no hiding of anything. And it is precisely this openness that normalises this behaviour and this imagery.
    I cannot begin to imagine the effect that this type of music and imagery has on impressionable young minds, let alone anyone else. I am still quite disturbed by some things that you have spoken about here. As for some of the artists that you reveal have certain links to satanic worship and the like I was not surprised as I had always suspected links. However, I did not know that they had actually written songs, or LP covers related to satanic worship.
    thanks so much for bringing this to our attention. I don’t really listen to this kind of music so would not have anyway of knowing the extent to which the darkness has taken over.
    keep up the good work!

  12. Really good expose..!

  13. I remember having a conversation with someone recently who mentioned that their sibling had been given free tickets to Katy Perry concert and had taken their children with them, albeit grudgingly, as they said that the children were crying during the concert, and wanted to go home, and that they suffered with nightmares that night. But funnily enough even this didn’t click with the person that there’s something very evil happening through music, even though the children obviously could feel the terror of it. Ironically, people are made to fear spirituality, through the help of the media, and yet have no idea what their children and they themselves are exposing themselves to and the ramifications it has upon their psyche.

    Sadly, it seems to me that a lot of people like the vibrations of darkness, otherwise it wouldn’t have gained the power it has. Embracing the animal within is becoming the new freedom of expression, and any embracing of the divine within is made to look weird and ostracized from society. The darkness has not only inverted esoteric symbols but it has inverted our perception of life, of good and evil and of truth and lies.

    An eye opening series David – thanks for digging in and bringing it out of the rabbit hole!

    • “Embracing the animal within is becoming the new freedom of expression, and any embracing of the divine within is made to look weird and ostracized from society.

      Layla, I really like how you have expressed this idea, you have summed things up really well.

  14. Hi David

    Excellent article. Thanks for pointing out some disturbing facts about the music industry and its dark, hidden agenda.

    It’s interesting to read about the artists’ reaction to those negative influences, especially in last part of your article where they admit to trying to subdue the torment from their inner demons. I recently came across an article where a popular band I used to listen to, Radiohead, expressed a similar reaction to a well-known song if theirs:

    In addition to the subliminal messages and symbology used in the music industry, another important component is the sound of the music itself – the beats/tone/vibrations and how they respond to us internally. I find this to be particularly true with another genre of music that hasn’t been mentioned in the article but is quickly gaining a lot of popularity – house music. I find it interesting that this type of music uses minimal lyrics and doesn’t produce a lot of music videos but its’ “underground” appeal, exotic locations, massive crowds and hypnotic beats have created quite a frenzy. Even hard core rappers, pop artists and celebrities are getting into it. Personally I find that music chaotic and distracting and I have seen how it can potentiate and trigger certain low, emotional states out of people. Wondering what your thoughts on this are?

    • That’s really nasty what that singer said in the link you’ve posted Patricia. Basically, he is saying that he didn’t write the song, that some sort of outside force “wrote” it, and that its evil and that he feels sorry for people listening to it and letting it touch them. And yet, he still continues to play it and promote it. It even feels as if, by telling all about it, he somehow “washed his hands”. I think a lot would change if people became aware of how real these non-physical entities and forces are.

      • Great article, and really important topic. I wonder what kids now feel when they’re watchig MTV? This stuff is so constant, everywhere, it comes to little less than brainwashing through exposure from mainstream media outlets all day. I can’t remember it being so blatantly full of occult and dark symbolism when I was young, but still that I didn’t like a lot of the music on the radio and MTV.

        I knew of a crowd of people who were very interested in Crowley, it was so tied up with this image of cool, the clothes, the music, the dark-side. It’s quite amazing to me now how easily people unknowingly flirt with these forces.

        I can’t help but feel a strange loyalty to Radiohead and Thom Yorke! I remember when I first heard about the music industy and I really didn’t want to let go of some of my old favourite teenage favourites! I do think there’s a big difference between stars that have consciously entered into this pact and are promoting demonic practices, and artists that have their normal human battles with being controlled by the egos or the consciousness, and their music being part of that.

    • Hi Patricia,

      I haven’t really looked into house music, so it’s hard for me to comment, but the beat and vibration of music definitely has an affect on people’s emotions.

      Thanks for sharing the Radiohead link, it’s quite telling!

    • Hi Patricia,

      In the Netherlands and other European countries the house you mention is very popular. Although it has branched off into a much harder type of music called hardstyle with several festivals each month and throughout the year.

      I can remember back in 2004 going to one of those hardstyle events. I was completely in awe because of the show and the whole atmosphere in a large hall with at least 10.000 people attending. It was so massive and so well organised with concepts of time and truth often interwoven with the music and presentation. On this event the various DJ’s had their stage inside a large pentagram that changed color. I thought this was a bit odd until I years later discovered two large all-seeing eyes projected onto circles at the back, overseeing the crowd. It all started to fall into place.

      When you do an image search on the words “hardstyle”, combined with either “climax”, “defqon” or “iqon” you’ll get an idea of the setting and stages. Some of the symbolism and dark themes run right through those festivals. Combine that with a load of drugs and you have the perfect setting to invoke heavy and unconscious states. If you’re at one of these festivals and you pay attention, you’ll start to see it’s all in plain sight.

    • Thanks for sharing that link Patricia. It was shocking and heart breaking for me to read what he said about the song as I used to like it a lot in my teens! It’s heart breaking because his sadness and regret is so evident in what he says… I felt then that it resonated with my melancholy, but I would have never thought of what it really communicates. Gosh the things I’ve been exposing myself to unknowingly. I wonder if it has created some permanent twisting or damage in my psyche I’m unaware of, as I used to listen to a lot worse stuff too.

      I guess in the mainstream there is this feeling that nothing has real meaning, the symbols and things I mean. It’s all just ‘artistic expression’, so anything is accepted. It shocks me that people honestly admire these things as you can see for example in the comments for all the popular MTV artists on youtube.

    • Thanks Patricia for sharing that link.

      It’s very interesting to read that artist’s comments about his song. After having read it and listened to the song (which I hadn’t heard before) for me there’s repellence towards it and towards the low feelings that want to drag you into them. But I can see that there is a certain pleasure to that low emotion. It seems to me convey exactly what he said, like a feeling and knowing of all hope being lost, having no chance, and being lost to that misery forever. And like the article mentions I can see how being exposed to it over and over can make someone start ‘enjoying’ those low emotions.

      I agree with Lucia as well. If he feels this about the song why does he still play it? Still broadcasting it to all the people who might get caught in it or dragged down by it.

      Thank you also Laura for you comments, quite insightful. And I agree people are not aware of what’s going on, don’t believe or know anything more exists, they just take it all as entertainment or artistic expression that has no further impact on them or their spiritual life. But yeah, when looking back on my own teens the weight of mainstream music’s vibration was huge. Glad I’m not burdening myself with that anymore 🙂
