Ke$ha’s Die Young occult foray

Pop singer KeSha’s new video Die Young, a track off her new album Warrior, is an interesting foray into the Masonic Nexus as it swirls in a mix of secret society symbolism.

Certainly not the most interesting use of esoteric or occult symbolism in music, I’d give that prop to Jay-Z and his all seeing eye hands,  but perhaps Ke$ha’s use is the most danceable.

Symbolism to keep an eye out for…

The all seeing eye, pentagrams, triangles and nested triangles, geometric patterns galore, a lambs wool covering, and a glowing pentagram juxtaposed with an inverted cross.

The symbolism in the video is intended, as an MTV deconstruction explains, as it includes Illuminati references while telling a story of a cult like collection, in essence, dying young.

Honestly, though, I find it hard to really construct any real conclusion on the use of the iconography other than to say that it’s trying to make reference to some kind of esoteric essence through the lens-flare in a disco.

What do you think?  Does the video artfully depict your secret society experience?

And, in case you missed the Jay-Z secret society video, this should refresh your memory…

    The all-seeing eye is/was used far more by IOOF than Masonry among the 600+ fraternal groups in America alone. The generic symbols used in this video are just that: generic – common to some ‘gang’ symbols as well
