From unexpected drama to shocking performances, MTV’s 2009 Video Music Awards managed once again to raise eyebrows and get people talking. What most people however missed is the occult meanings encoded into the VMAs. The TV event was in fact a large scale occult ceremony, complete with an initiation, a prayer and even a blood sacrifice. We’ll look at the symbolism that went on during the show.
Lady Gaga’s performance was hailed as “brilliant” by many music fans. If you however ask them what it symbolizes, their face turns into a question mark. ...
The setting for the performance is very symbolic. Gaga performs in a temple or maybe an aristocratic mansion, complete with columns, chandlers and paintings. Occult rituals, mind control experiments and even human sacrifices have been constantly rumored to take place in those kinds of settings. One feature I cannot ignore is the presence of two massive pillars underneath an arch.

Those are unmistakable Masonic symbols as depicted on this lithograph:
This obvious reference to Freemasonry hints to the occult and ritualistic aspect of Gaga’s performance. Masons are known to carry in their lodges ritual dramas, which are live reenactments of allegorical stories. Gaga’s performance symbolizes her rise to fame and the sacrifice she had to make in order to succeed.
When the bloody Gaga is lifted in the air, an eerie light comes out of of between the pillars and the dancers lift their arms in the air in praise. Many ancient religions carried out ritual sacrifices to please the gods. Blood sacrifices have also been viewed by black magicians as the ultimate way to collect spiritual energy. The final scene of the performance conveys the presence of this mysterious “force” after a sacrifice.
Pink’s Masonic Initiation
There is no way a Mason can watch this performance without recalling his initiation into the First Degree. Here’s a description by Mark Stavish:“The candidate for initiation is stripped of all material possessions and dressed in a strange and peculiar garb (…). This includes a blindfold and a length of rope called a cable tow.”
He continues“The blindfold used represents secrecy, darkness and ignorance as well as trust. The candidate is led into the lodge room for initiation but is not able to see what is happening. He is bound about the waist and arm with the cable tow.”

The initiate is blindfolded, attached to a cord with the left breast and left leg exposed
Pink is blindfolded and bound with ropes. Her costume exposes her left breast, exactly like Masonic initiates. Instead of having her left leg exposed, Pink’s costume bears a diamond pattern which is very reminiscent of floors in Masonic lodges.

"Guess what 33rd degree real life master mason was in the house, none other than buzz aldrin, the man that performed masonic rites on the moon in apron and all"
I think that lapel pin at the top is of a phoenix, very significant in the occult. And as we know, the Apollo "moon landing" psypop missions were absolutely filled with occult nomenclature and significance.
