Initial Research - The Illuminati.

The Illuminati (plural of Latin illuminatus, "enlightened") is a name given to several groups, both real (historical) and fictitious. Historically the name refers to the Bavarian Illuminati, an Enlightenment-era secret society founded on May 1, 1776. In more modern contexts the name refers to a purported conspiratorial organization which is alleged to mastermind events and control world affairs through governments and corporations to establish a New World Order. In this context the Illuminati are usually represented as a modern version or continuation of the Bavarian Illuminati.

Contrasts of beliefs
What is the Illuminati?
  • The Illuminati is an ancient and shadowy group of elites who control nearly every aspect of life on this planet — from finance and government to religion and culture.
  • A defunct German secret society of freethinkers, humanists and Enlightenment academics, founded in 1776 and infiltrated and shut down by Bavarian authorities about a decade later.
Who is in the Illuminati?
  • The Illuminati is made up of the world's political and financial elite, and also, rappers. Theoretically, membership rolls are kept secret, but most YouTube intellectuals agree that the following people are members: Barack Obama, The Pope, Queen Elizabeth II, George Bush, Jay Z, Kanye West, Rihanna, Beyonce, Lady Gaga + more.
  • There hasn't been an Illuminati for 200 years. It's been in use as a conspiracy theory ever since it was first founded, mostly by monarchists, right-wingers, and religious Christians looking for explanations as to why things aren't going their way.

More believers views
What do the Illuminati do?
  • Assassinations, currency manipulation, Super Bowl halftime shows. All executed through puppet institutions and groups like the Federal Reserve, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Freemasons, and Def Jam Recordings. And all carefully controlled and hidden to ensure that their meddling in world affairs will remain secret. The end goal of the Illuminati is to establish a one-world authoritarian government known as the New World Order. Some of the internet's finest minds, writing on scholarly websites like Yahoo Answers, believe that forced conversion to homosexuality will be a top agenda item in the New World Order. Others claim the first order of business will be to round all non-Illuminati up into FEMA camps, possibly as part of a deal struck with aliens in Roswell. Many, if not most, experts believe that the New World Order will be a front for the rise of the Antichrist.
  • The Illuminati is made up of Satanists. The Pope is actually a Satanist, just like Jay-Z and the Queen of England.
How can you tell who is in the Illuminati?
  • Sounds counterintuitive, but prominent Illuminati members frequently flag their Illuminati connections. Like how in Lady Gaga's "Born This Way" video, there's that goat head-shaped star formation? Or have you ever seen Jay-Z's video for "On to the Next One"? It has agoat skull in it.
Illuminati Symbols
  • Goat heads represents Baphomet, the goat-headed god beloved by 19th-century occultists.
  • The pink triangle and unicorn in Lady Gaga's video actually symbols of the immaculate conception of a new order of humanity. 
Satanic Rituals
  • Madonna's Super Bowl halftime show. The color scheme was red and black. She had horns on her helmet. The show happened within 48 hours of the full moon. Her male dancers formed a pyramid, a Masonic symbol. It ended with the phrase "World Peace" — as in, "New WorldOrder Peace." It was to celebrate the upcoming assassination of Whitney Houston. It was to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth and to make room in the Illuminati for Blue Ivy Carter.
Assassinations by the Illuminati
  • J.F.K, 2Pac, Bob Marley, Michael Jackson. Heath Ledger's death was a ritualistic sacrifice. Aaliyah was killed by Dame Dash so he could become famous.

Illuminati Symbolism
The All Seeing Eye
The theme of the ‘All Seeing Eye’ and the ‘Evil Eye’ is one of the most powerful and easily recognisable symbols in the occult and is one of the favoured symbols of the Illuminati going back as far as one can trace.  Undoubtedly the eye is the 'doorway to the soul' (speaking literally and not).  To know a person's 'truth' can be achieved by 'looking them in the eye' which begins to explain why the symbol is so meaningful.
Nowadays it generally appears on many of the bloodline controlled institutions and companies such as the media, financial, technological, academic, governmental and more popularly on the US Dollar Bill.
It is quite common for this to appear in a pyramid capstone which is detached from the rest of the pyramid, symbolising the all seeing elite at the top which is untouchable compared to the rest of the pyramid below.

The Eternal Flame
Throughout history you will find this symbol being used.  This symbol more often than not represents the possession of knowledge.  (i.e. the celebration of those who are in possession of the knowledge and their power over those who aren't).  The flaming torch being all illuminating, with knowledge represented by the fire.
Illuminism is the concept, the original founding philosophy of the oldest seeds of the Illuminati.  That one can draw power over not only ones own destiny but the destiny of others also.

Sun Cycles
The Sun is a massively powerful symbol to the elite going back thousands and thousands of years. In ancient times, even to the average John working on a farm, the Sun was a force to be worshipped. Within its monthly and yearly cycles, he would grow crops during its height, harvest as it weakened and take shelter during the lowest point of its strength.
But there was then and has always been more to the sun than just an energy source from which abundance can be given.  Its many sub-cycles that the average un-educated man or woman in the street is unaware of, its relationship with the other planets of the universe and the effects on the gravity and polarity and magnetics of our own planet, especially in relation with our Moon (another massive Illuminati symbol).  Certain words and phrases such as Summer, sun-set, ‘father and son’ actually originate from the knowledge and worship of this ‘Energy Source’. 
The Lion as seen on the ten pence piece is another ancient Sun symbol. The golden mane of the Lion representing the golden rays of the sun. 
Also the circle and the cross is another ‘Zodiac’ type Sun symbol representing the four seasons. The circle being the Sun which is on a cross, dividing it into four, also used by the Celtic Cross. Constantine the Great who practically wrote the Christian religion was massively into sun worship and symbolism, which is why the story of the Crucifixion of Christ implemented the Son (Sun) of God on the Cross. 

El Diablo
The 'sign of the Devil' (aka El Diablo) can be achieved by arranging the fingers of your hand. This symbol represents the horns of the beast, or Satan.
This is often done 'out of daftness' by rock musicians and their fans at concerts around the world. As with other symbols of the Illuminati, only those who lead the movements really understand what they mean. 

The Pyramid Capstone
The pyramid with the capstone detached has several meanings. One meaning would be the symbol of an unfinished project (i.e. the Great Work of Ages a.k.a the New World Order) which is very near completion.  A similar theme is carried in the classic depiction of the Tower of Babel.  An image which has the same feeling as the classic pyramid seen on the One Dollar Bill. A second meaning would be the symbol of the elite or gods (as they see themselves) at the top of a compartmentalised system/civilisation.  The pyramid being a monument built by slaves (allegedly). The elite get to stand at the very top and at their vantage point they get to see all, hence the All Seeing Eye in the capstone.

The Pentagram
When you do the research you will find that the Pentagram, also known as the 'five pointed star' is one of the all time favourite esoteric symbols of the secret society network of the Illuminati. Its meaning and placement varies from society to society, religion to religion and new age movement to new age movement.

Meanings behind Lady Gaga's Songs and Videos.

I have decided to post some information I have found on Gaga's songs and corresponding video's. I have included the meanings said by the people involved and also the suspected meanings from members of the public which contrast significantly. Because the definitions are quite in depth I have chosen three songs to focus on. A lot of the opposing meanings focus strongly on the Illuminati conspiracy and also have links with the occult which I will also research further next. The definitions are not my own thoughts but ideas thought up and believed by others.



  • This is a track from Lady Gaga's EP, The Fame Monster. In this song Gaga fends off three Mexican lovers.
  • Every track on The Fame Monster represents a "fear" of some "monster." GaGa has said this song was influenced by her "fear of sex" monster.
  • Gaga has cited in interviews Abba's 1976 song "Fernando" as an influence on this tune.
  • "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. 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."

Supposed hidden meanings:
  • Gaga is saying that the female anatomy is dangerous and evil. This comes in two forms: 
    • The bra with the machine guns on it.
    • When Gaga is wearing the clear plastic habit, it has red upside-down crosses on it. An upside- cross, in the Catholic Church anyway, is a sign of the devil or evil. There is an upside-down over her crotch.
  • The song is about how she sees love based on a man's wallet (she hides true love en su bolsillo [Bolsillo is pocket in Spanish, which plays a large part in the song]). She then wraps men around her finger with her innocent act (She's got a halo round her finger, around you). 
  • Good vs. evil, male vs. female and domination vs. submission.
  • The halo around the finger is a wedding ring and Alejandro has a halo around him, which signifies he is considered “holy.” The wedding ring represents Gaga’s union with God through religion, but she is now ashamed of this marriage. She hides the ring in her bolsillo, the Spanish word for pocket. Why does she refer to a Fernando and a Roberto at some point? Is she referring to the triple aspect of God, the holy Trinity?
  • Gaga’s robe contains many inverted crosses. This is extremely significant in symbolic language. Inverted symbols are found in black magic and satanism.
  • By swallowing the rosary, Gaga incorporates within her a symbol of religious devotion because it represents Gaga seeking to obtain godhood by her own means. We have here a symbolic representation of the tenets of Luciferianism, which is the drive to attain divinity by one own means.
  • The “Black Queen” removes one goggle at a time, flashing the Illuminati All-Seeing Eye sign.

Bad Romance

  • Lyrically the song celebrates the kind of lusty passion and desire found in a bad romance novel.
  • The clip features Gaga with some razor-blade sunglasses. She explained to MTV News: "I wanted to design a pair for some of the toughest chicks and some of my girlfriends - don't do this at home! - they used to keep razor blades in the side of their mouths. That tough female sprit is something that I want to project. It's meant to be, 'This is my shield, this is my weapon, this is my inner sense of fame, this is my monster.'"
  • There's a healthy bit of gibberish in the lyrics ("Roma Roma-ma"), as well as some French. The French part is: "Je veux ton amour et je veux ta revanche," which translates to "I want your love and I want your revenge."
  • Lady GaGa said in a recent interview that the song was about falling in love with your best friend. She wants more than just a friendship and she is saying that she loves them so mush she wants to share the darkest parts of herself with him and in turn learn the darkest parts of him. 

Supposed hidden meanings:
  • Depicting Gaga as a willing victim in the music industry’s shady inner-workings. She wants to live a Bad Romance with the abusive, cruel and satanic music industry. She’s aware of all of its flaws but she still desires to be part of it more than anything else. She is a Fame Monster…she feeds off of fame…she enjoys being famous.
  • During the bridge, Gaga sings emotionally “I don’t wanna be friends“. She does not want to be an outsider of the music industry, she wants to be part of it. Later she says “I want your love and, All your lovers’ revenge”, which means that she wants all of the attention of the music industry to the point that she also wants the “hate” of the artists who are jealous of her.
  • Gaga is not singing to a person, but to a group, an entity, an organization. She is singing to the Illuminati, to the music industry, to Baphomet: to the ones that have the power to make her famous.
  • At the beginning of the video, she is deprived of her senses. Either her eyes, her ears or her nose are covered. Sensory deprivation is a torture technique used on prisoners or mind controlled slaves in order to “break” them and to facilitate their re-education. She is a beginner, an amateur and she doesn’t really know what she’s doing.
  • Gaga is then undressed and forced to perform in front of a bunch of men. Those mafioso can represent the Illuminati, the dark force ruling the music industry. The masks represent their hidden nature. Each individual represents a record company, and they are bidding to see who will sign her.
  • Gaga then makes her trademark “Eye in the triangle” hand gesture after her initiation to make it clear who owns her now…the Illuminati.
  • There are many symbols referring to the sun in the video. As said above, Ra is an Egyptian sun god who is mentioned many times in the magic incantation-like “Rah-rah” chant.  Sun worship has always been at the center of occult mysteries as it is considered to be the ultimate representation of God.



  • In this song the protagonist is being harassed by her lover on the phone when she's trying to dance in a club.
  • GaGa told MTV News that this song is about her "fear of suffocation." She explained: Something that I have or fear is never being able to enjoy myself. 'Cause I love my work so much, I find it really hard to go out and have a good time."
    Gaga added that the phone in the song isn't just a physical phone, but also somebody in her head telling her to keep working harder and harder. "That's my fear - that the phone's ringing and my head's ringing," she explained. "Whether it's a telephone or it's just the thoughts in your head, that's another fear."
  • In the video the date on the prison security cameras (February 11, 2010) is the same date that the late British fashioner designer Alexander McQueen's body was discovered in his London home. When Gaga performed this song at the BRIT awards, shortly after McQueen's death was announced she told the crowd, "This is for Alexander McQueen."
  • "The video in a lot of ways is more about [BeyoncĂ©] even than it is about me," Gaga said. "It was sort of a pop-art venture for me to bring her into my world. In a way, the video is an attempt for her and I to erase pop music as we know it up until this very point. It's meant to change the perspective of the world on what a pop music video should be and she's kind of the vehicle for that. In reality, more people around the world are familiar with her aesthetics than they are with mine. It was something for me to kind of change the way that you see her for one video."

Supposed hidden meanings:
  • The video refers to mind control and, more specifically, Monarch Programming, a covert technique profusely used in the entertainment industry.
  • elephone acts as a sequel to Paparazzi, where Gaga still plays the role of a mind-controlled drone who kills people.
  • In the video, the “telephone” is a metaphor for Gaga’s brain and the fact that she is not answering that phone (her brain) means that she has “dissociated” from reality.
  • Do the cigarettes covering her eyes represent her blindness to her highly toxic life as a mind controlled drone?
  • The mass murder begins … people eat up Gaga’s poisoned honey and die. Does this represent the Illuminati elite poisoning the masses with toxic media?
  • Lady Gaga turns the a-ok hand in front of her eye (representing the Illuminati’s “All-Seeing Eye”) into a gun pointed towards the viewer … the masses eating all of the poison served to them.

Initial Designs - Lady Gaga Illustrations.

Lady Gaga Telephone

Lady Gaga Meat Dress

Lady Gaga Vessel

Artist Research - Lady Gaga Portraits.

Helen Green
I really admire the work by Helen Green, especially the realistic and accurate look she has achieved. I regularly go on her Tumblr to see what new drawings have been added. She draws a variety of celebrities but Lady Gaga is the main focus. She updates regularly and her pieces are a reflection of the subjects at the present moment in time. I think this is good as she keeps up with the fast moving pace of these celebrities and documents the transitions they make with their appearance very accurately.

Adrian Valencia
I find these digital illustrations by Adrian Valencia really interesting. I like how he has captured many iconic looks but still kept each design with the same style. I think the repetition of the silhouette is very effective and his attention to detail really brings the designs to life. I think a style like this would be really good to experiment with.

Adam Brackney
I really like the simplistic approach to these designs, I think the fact they are simple and still portray the theme and character of Gaga has made them successful. I like the limited colour scheme as I think it lends itself to the block tapes and the small addition of texture.

Marleen Weijman
I am not a huge fan of these pieces. Even though I can appreciate them the design isn't to my taste and I don't find them aesthetically pleasing. The colour scheme is too garish and I don't like the use of black outline. I think the overall appearance is much to like that of a cartoon.

Kayla Jones
I really love these collage designs. The choice of imagery and how they have been incorporated with each other and additional shapes and symbols is really appealing. The colours are very monotone apart from the small pops of pink which I think looks very effective. This is a style that I would definitely like to look into during this project.

Da Morgue
Here are some artworks documenting the major scenes of some of Lady Gaga's hit records. I was really drawn in by the characters as I think the portray what is going on so well and the attention to detail is really good.

Sathaporn U-sapanitch
I have decide to document this piece as it is a typeface using Gaga imagery and shows the alternative path that I could experiment with. I think the appearance is very interesting and unique which matches her persona. The monotone black and white also links it all together.

Shreya Gupta
Here are some more simplistic representations of Gaga! Again they are successful because the right aspects have been focused on for them to still be recognisable. I think some additions of type would make these compositions even better.
