MTV Says The Illuminati Controlled Last Night’s VMAs

When MTV starts posting tongue-in-cheek articles about the Illuminati controlling its Video Music Awards (VMAs), you know that the Illuminati pop music meme has just about run its course:

Last week, we gave you two sides of a much-heated national debate. First, we gave you 16 examples that prove the Illuminati control the VMAs. Then, we flipped the argument on its head, giving 16 more reasons why they totally don’t. Both sides were compelling and convincing enough, but only last night’s epic show could settle the matter once and for all. Take a look at the evidence and judge for yourself.

The Snake Debacle

PRO-ILLUMINATI: Nicki Minaj sang a song called “Anaconda.” Which is a snake. A satanic snake. Need we say more? Even though she’s, uh, probably not singing about a real snake (we’re thinking it may be a metaphor), the symbolism is so there.

ANTI-ILLUMINATI: But Nicki’s performance didn’t feature a real, live snake, as originally slated. That’s because the boa constrictor bit one of her dancers in rehearsal, which could be the universe’s way of telling Nicki and the Illuminati to back off.

2. The Mind-Control Debate

PRO-ILLUMINATI: The Illuminati MUST have been trying to hypnotize or brainwash us last night, right? What other explanation could there be for the spiral-shaped stage that the winners accepted their Moonmen on?

ANTI-ILLUMINATI: Even though the spiral stage was pretty captivating, there were also messages planted throughout the show to force us out of hypnotization. 5 Seconds of Summersang about waking up with “Amnesia” (meaning they obviously wanted us to wake up this morning and forget we had been brainwashed), and then Ariana Grande convinced us to “Break Free.” So HA! No mind control here, suckers…

    You know which retards say the illuminati runs MTV, the retards who watch MTV.

  • Echar Lailoken

    Yup, the Illuminati has officially jumped the shark.

  • InfvoCuernos

    I don’t know what’s scarier: that the Illuminati would waste time trying to control the masses of idgits that watch Empty V, or that they might have decided that it was not a waste of time to control them.

  • Number1Framer


    Seriously, I don’t know how anyone could believe that whole theory. If I was a musician, you could bet I’d jump on that bandwagon. My main source of advertising would be Vigilant Citizen.

  • andrew barry

    idiotic articles like this distract people from potentially real, threatening conspiracies and create a tension between patriots and sheep, causing the aforementioned to be labeled as “crazy” or “tinfoil hat wearers”….who is writing this garbage, and furthermore, who is allowing this writer to post it on this website? disinfo you should be ashamed to have garbage like this on your website it makes you look like a star magazine if not worse

    • Echar Lailoken

      Bro… You passed the test! Here’s your initiation video.

      Don’t tell anyone!

    • gustave courbet

      I would wager that the editors at disinfo are shooting for an audience that has the sophistication to chuckle at both the inanity of this article and the absurdity of the people it mocks.

    • Andrew

      Patriots are sheep.

  • BuzzCoastin

    you can’t sell your soul to Satan
    because he already owns it & MTV

  • Andrew

    Anybody who thinks the people who run the world are a single organized group with a name is terribly naive.

    • Adam S.

      More like 50,000 smaller Illuminati
      World power probably works a whole lot more like the old Steve Jackson board game than anybody is ever going to admit.

    • thenumbersix

      its called “the financial industry”?

  • Evenstar

    Why even bother with crap illuminati muzak when there is actually real music?

    • BrianApocalypse

      The Devil has all the best tunes.

      • Fred Derf

        This bozo believes there’s a difference between the devil and jesus.

        • BrianApocalypse


      • VoxMagi

        Perhaps, but Heaven got all the best Choreographers

        • BrianApocalypse

          Now just imagine the show they could put on if we somehow got them to cooperate.

  • Denise Fraijo

    The word illuminati? If you ever took the time to really educate yourself about the occult world then you would know, magic has been used for centuries on the masses.

    • Echar Lailoken

      I am using magick on the masses right… NOW!

  • ÿ

    This is what we get for not listening to Fatboy Slim.

    • Echar Lailoken

      Wow, I totally forgot about this song. Must be the Illuninati’s doing. Best song by him is Give the Po’ Man a Break,imo.

      • ÿ

        Actually. thoze Ill Naughties killed Norman Cook and replaced him with a lizard person look a like. Witness the coded message within, much like “Paul Is Dead” in Revolution #9…

        • Echar Lailoken

          This reminds me that I should look for his other Jazz breaks work.

          • ÿ

            Wasn’t that DJ Food? Norm tends to prefer the funk, though I’ve never really spent much time sample spotting his catalog.

          • Echar Lailoken

            He did some Jazz stuff early on. I used to have a cd, but lost it.

          • Echar Lailoken
          • ÿ

            Wow, that is so much better than his Fatboy Slim stuff. Downtempo for the win. If you haven’t found it by now, “Freak Power The Fried Funk Food E.P.” + a certain archive file extension should get you there.

            Are you familiar with DJ Cam?

          • Echar Lailoken

            Agreed, and Dj. Cam is smooth. Thank you for the rec.

      • VoxMagi

        I admit to shamelessly over playing “Sho Nuff”…which has a beat that just can’t be beat. Love that FatBoySlim!!

        • Echar Lailoken

          I must have skipped this album. It’s great.

          • VoxMagi

            You found it on youtube? I picked it up as an EP cd, came out about the time he was getting major airplay. I’d heard it playing in a shop in East Lansing and the girl I was lounging around with and I wound up dancing in the street in front of the store. After that I had to have it. Which is true of most of his stuff anyway…which is why my cd shelf has such a large chunk of his releases.

          • Echar Lailoken

            yep, someone in the comments said it’s off of the Praise you Single. Which makes sense, that’s when he blew up.

            Revisiting his music recently, I’ve noticed his music has this super happy vibe. I think he’s doing his TOE project now. There’s a great song released several years ago with David Byrne singing. You may have seen the video.


          • VoxMagi

            Hadn’t heard it …until now! Byrne makes a great pairing here! Thanks for the new discovery! (I’ve been booked awhile with work…so little time to explore music and cinema…I’ll catch up in winter)

          • Echar Lailoken

            Have you heard the David Byrne and Brian Eno pairing?


            One of the best albums of that year.

          • VoxMagi

            Yes, for this one! Completely agreed, Eno and Byrne complement one another perfectly. This is still a favorite!

  • Adam S.

    Ahhh, it’s the Illuminati that likes Miley Cyrus. Somebody had to. No one else likes her.

    • VoxMagi

      Actually…she’s kind of fun to watch…with the sound off. What…we all have weak moments and guilty pleasures!

  • Jim Wintergreen

    As a member of the Illuminati, I can assure you, we have no interest in MTV or the VMA awards.

    • Tina Matos Colon

      A member!?
      Please Mr.Wintergreen, enlighten me, tell me how that is possible!
      A member of a secret society that has its name and goverment on the screen of my phone. Jim, perhaps you are a representative, something like these artist above, they represent this organization of enlighten beings, but know nothing of such. a contract or two!?
      a few sacrifices done to play with its faith, come on now!?
      these leaders are sane, probrably not even human, …..are you honestly an enlightened one!?

      • Jim Wintergreen

        I don’t know much about being an “enlightened one.” All I can tell you is that we have never bothered with MTV, or any attempt to manipulate media content. Admittedly, being secretive opens you up to all sorts of accusations. That cloud of inaccurate accusations actually helps us to maintain our low profile.
        Just look at another example – Area 51. If people want to believe that there are aliens there, let them – it serves as better cover to the true mission.

  • Jonas Planck

    As long as it means Iggy Azalea is going to be thrown into a live volcano or some similar form of gruesome sacrifice, I’m down with it.

  • Gwen Hennessy

    They fucking wish they were the Illuminati, but in reality they’re too fucking stupid to even be useful idiots. All they want is more ad revenue.

  • Westphal Ricardo

    Anaconda is a satanic snake? WTF!!! I quit reading after that.

    • VoxMagi

      LOL…because when medieval occultists want to celebrate their contempt for the old Catholic church…they ALWAYS use an as yet undiscovered Latin American snake!

  • BrianApocalypse

    And there you have it, proof that people in the music industry are all to aware of the Illuminati myths surrounding their work, and deliberately play up to it. If I was working in that business, I’d do it too.

    But I want the REAL scoop on this story! Let’s go check out what Mark Dice has to say about it!

    do de do de do…


  • Jiro M. Trismegistus

    Come on Disinfo what with these cream puff unentertaining articles in the last couple of weeks. Snore…..

    • Echar Lailoken

      Come on concern trolls. What’s with this uptick of concern trolls with very few comments lately?



  • Roger D’Ambra

    the “illuminati” is just a cover word. this goes far deeper than what u see here and abroad. many commenters here are aware of this fact too…and don’t like ones who can see. the “illuminati” are everywhere–they are many groups.

  • fizmath

    “Revelation of the Method” google it.

  • Saros7

    Yeah… No… See what you idiots have done. You’ve created a stupid meme out of yourselves. The only mind control here is through Sex, Drugs, and Alcohol, oh and “Music”
