Barbadian Christian alleges Umbrella Video & Song from Rihanna is a tract for Illuminat & Satanism – Is Jenkins missing an inmate?

I got an e-mail from a pal of mine and they didn’t know if to be shocked or laugh themselves sick. It’s about Rihanna, it’s about Devil worship, it’s about coded messages and all in the same breath – from a Bajan who touts Christianity and of course has a massive dollop of a desire to Save The World From Evil! I took a look at it and was bored no end, think it’s utter crap and about as close to the truth as the assumption that yes, there is a Great Pumpkin, in fact, the Great Pumpkin is more likely to be true than this! Marshall obviously has a lot of time to contemplate nothing! Still, for those who’d like a laugh or target practice for rotting vegetables – please search for this Marshall and not me, as I in no way agree nor accept this treatise as Gospel…

?Umbrella? ? The Occult Connection

By Roger Marshall*

?If music is used outside of God’s intent, i.e., to promote sex, violence and the occult, it can tear down the very fabric of a society.? 1

Christian News review

?Pop music is sex and you have to hit them [teenagers] in the face with it? 2

Andrew Oldham, manager of the Rolling Stones

The sex in your face philosophy, delineated above by Andrew Oldham, still prevails in much of today?s pop music culture. Rihanna?s highly acclaimed, Grammy Award winning single ?Umbrella?, from her Good Girl Gone Bad album, is no exception. On top of that, the music video is punctuated with occult imagery.

Rihanna herself told her music video director Chris Applebaum that she was prepared to ?Take more chances. Musically, lyrically and even visually? and assured him that she was prepared to do something ?sexy? in the ?Umbrella? music video. 3

That desire of hers to do something sexy has been accomplished in the music video in no uncertain terms.

In reviewing the music video of ?Umbrella?, the feminist website ?Femtique: feminist critique of pop media? has observed: ?For the rest of the music video, Rihanna subjects herself to utter objectification. It is the sexual fantasy all men are wanting . . . a ?good girl gone bad? ? that?s the name of her entire album, by the way. The [accompanying] snapshot is one of the most sexually submissive posses she performs in the video. There are many parts of the video in which she dances around the umbrella as if the umbrella was some phallic sculpture to be worshiped. While she dances around the umbrella in between her legs, she taunts and chants to the video watcher by saying ?Baby come into me? repetitively??4

The music video and pop culture blog, Obtusity, observes: ?At about 2 minutes and 30 seconds into this glossy new video, a nearly-nude Rihanna poses provocatively inside a huge triangle. But long before that blatant moment of female sexuality director Chris Applebaum establishes ?Umbrella? as a multi-faceted metaphor. From the way Rihanna’s short skirt mimics the look of an open umbrella to the suggestive way she places a closed one between her legs, the artist presents her femininity as a sensual and protective attraction.?5

The Triangle/Pyramid as a Phallic Symbol

As mentioned earlier, during Rihanna?s ?Umbrella? music video she poses provocatively in the nude, covered with nothing but body paint, in a huge triangle/pyramid. Since (as the commentators cited earlier have clearly shown) the umbrella is used as a ?multi-faceted metaphor? representing at one and the same time the male sex organ (phallus) and her skirt under which is the female sex organ, could it be that the triangle also has a symbolic sexual meaning? When we search the occult literature the answer is yes.

Masonic author, R. Swinburne Clymer, in speaking of the Masonic symbolism of the triple Tau within the triangle states: ?The Phallus, or Lingam, and the Yoni, the male and female emblems of generation, are found in the triangle and the tau.? 6

During one of Rihanna?s postures in the triangle she forms what appears to be the out line of an inverted triangle, if that is the case it proves to be yet another occult sex symbol known as the Hexagram.

Rihanna in Triangle/Pyramid Hexagram Compass & Square

Masonic author, Albert Mackey, tells of the sexual connotation of the hexagram: ?The triangle pointing downward is a female symbol corresponding to the yoni and the upward pointing triangle is the male, the lingam … When the two triangles are interlaced, it represents the union of the active and passive forces in nature; it represents the male and female elements.? 7

In other words the interlacing triangles of the hexagram depict sexual intercourse.

The same is true of the compass and square emblem of Free Masonry. Albert Pike explains this fact to members of the 32nd Degree. He wrote: ?The Compass, therefore, is the Hermetic Symbol of the Creative Deity [the phallus], and the Square of the productive [the yoni]?? 8

Standing under her ?Umbrella?

The erection and worship of phallic monuments/images (known as obelisks in Egypt and there constructed as towering stone columns capped with a pyramid) was common place throughout the ancient Near East. Such practices were strongly condemned by God (Leviticus 26: 1; Jer. 43:13; Micah 5:13) but unfortunately they still penetrated the Jewish faith (I Kings 14:23; 2 Kings 17: 9-12; cf. 2 Kings 18:4; 23:14). In the Bible these phallic images were identified as ?standing images? (Hebrew: Matzebah). The term speaks at one and the same time of the erect ?standing? stone monument and the erect ?standing? male sex organ (phallus) which the image represented.

In occult circles it is said that the sublime posture for sex magick is to have the female on top the male (the so called ?goddess position?) with the male phallus ?standing? erect in the female vagina/yoni. 9 Could this be the hidden (occult) imagery and meaning of the line in Rihanna?s song when she sensually calls for her lover to ?stand? under her ?umbrella?? Personally, bearing everything in mind which has been discussed so far, I think it is and that it is graphically portrayed in the music video when, Rihanna, with her legs sprawled open holds a closed umbrella in an erect position standing from the base line of the floor vertically up to and between the mid-line of her genital area, upon which she slowly and provocatively descends on the perpendicular line of the erect standing umbrella in what appears to be the simulation of the sex act upon a phallus. The imagery is complete when, on her knees and haunches with her legs straddled apart, in the mid point of the triangle?s base line and at the bottom of the plane of the perpendicular line, she bows over her head as if to kiss the base line with her two arms extended back touching the two sides

of the triangle to form the outline of an inverted triangle/Masonic square (the yoni). As Masonic author, R.H. MacKenzie, states: ?among Egyptians, the base [of the triangle] represented Osiris, or the Male Principle; the perpendicular, Isis, or the Female Principle??10

The article entitled Free Masonry Proven to Worship Satan, its Symbols Venerate the Sex Act notes that ?in Masonic symbolism, the sex act is portrayed as the union of the perpendicular and the base line of the triangle? 11

When we connect all the dots in light of this analysis thusfar, Rihanna?s provocative dancing throughout the ?Umbrella? music video (flanked by men wallowing in the rain) and her sexy, seductive taunts towards the end of the video when she, almost in an orgasmic tone says: ?Ooh baby it’s raining? and beckons with her index finger to the video watcher to ?Baby come into me?, smacks of an ancient pagan sex ritual (also enshrined in the teachings of Freemasonry) which obligated a woman to offer her body to a stranger at least once in her life time. As Dr. Sanger Brown II, Assistant Physician at Bloomingdale Hospital, points out: ?A custom which shows even more clearly that prostitution was held as a sacred duty to women was that in Babylonia every woman, of high rank or low, must at one time in her life prostitute herself to any stranger who offered money. In ?Ancient Sex Worship? we read: ?There was a temple in Babylonia where every female had to perform once in her life a (to us) strange act of religion, namely, prostitution with a stranger. The name of it was Bit-Shagatha, or ‘The Temple,’ the ‘Place of Union.’ ? 12

In keeping with this conclusion arrived at heretofore, one observer said: ?It is so obvious, but I?ll just mention it for no one did before: If you read “ella ella eh eh eh eh eh eh” backwards, it says, “he he he.. alle alle” alle is german, in english “all” so she is singing:
“you can stand under my umbrella, hehehe, everybody is. And just something to add:
Virgin Records has some nasty symbols also! For instance one of their symbols [is] something like this freemason sign, which was looking like a woman (virgin) with spread open legs ?also, this is talked about in this song. She is the virgin that spreads her legs.? 13

{BR Ed’s Note: For a true story on how Virgin logo was created please visit here}

Interestingly enough, and reminiscent of the rock song: ?We sold our souls for Rock?n? Roll?, Rihanna has been highly rewarded monetarily both on the international stage and even in her homeland Barbados for her ?Umbrella? song and music video.

Keeping in mind what we have learnt thus far PR-Inside.com Entertainment News notes: ?R&B singer/songwriter THE DREAM has hinted RIHANNA?s chart smash UMBRELLA has a dirtier meaning behind it, because he penned the song using the word simply as a “metaphor”. The Def Jam artist – real name Terius Youngdell Nash – has written songs for stars like B2K and Mya, but points to Umbrella?s more adult-orientated theme which he penned in just 12 minutes. He says, ?That?s right, (Umbrella took) 12 of them nice lil? minutes. I?ve gotten to the point where songwriting is like freestyling – you enter the booth and let it come out. I?ll use certain things for metaphors, like ?Umbrella?? ?Once I get the thing I?m attaching the song with, then I?m running all the other tricks through the song to create that element? ? 14

Whereas the Bible warns Christian youth to ?flee youthful lusts? (2Tim. 2: 22), songs and music videos like ?Umbrella? are designed to arouse youthful lusts, particularly sexual lusts, in this our lust saturated world. The fact of arousing sexual lust is borne out by comments from some of Rihanna?s male fans. In responding to the symbolism of her ?Umbrella? hit song one fan said: ?She is gorgeous. If I wasn?t married, I?d find my way under her umbrella too…haha. I really like this song??15 yet another said: ?The umbrella is her skirt, and the rain is, well?.lets not go there. It?s a pop song about sex?.just like 99 million other pop songs about sex.? 16 Still another, this time a professed consultant for several music labels in Chicago, who describes himself as one who has ?been involved in hip-hop off and on for about ten years and have many friends in the industry? also says that ?Umbrella? is ?really about sex? 17

Understanding the Masonic/Occult Connection

Finally, the question must be asked: Why is there such apparent use of Masonic symbolism in ?Umbrella?? Answer: Jay-Z (Rihanna?s boss and mentor) from all the available evidence is himself a Free Mason who is deeply involved in the occult. The occult imagery and symbolism used in ?Umbrella? and his other entertainment enterprises is deliberately being employed to subliminally introduce his audience into the occult worldview of Free Masonry and the Illuminati (the overarching New World Order secret society) as a conditioning tool, no doubt, to make the masses more comfortable and at ease with the ?morals and dogma? of Masonic occult philosophy. In fact, the triangle or pyramid (the?ROC.?/?Diamond?) is Jay-Z?s own peculiar grand hailing sign and that of his hip-hop comrades Kanye West and Nas et al, which they throw up and flash at will. Of this practice the website Illuminati Archives notes: ?When the symbol is held against the face it is vital that the left eye be featured prominently within the pyramid shape. It is deliberately meant to match the eye at the top of the Masonic pyramid.? 18 This pyramid which is found on the back of the

US one dollar bill is actually the insignia of the Illuminati secret society ? the so called ?illumined? or ?enlightened? ones who follow Lucifer ?the light bearer.?

In its conspiracy to abolish Christianity and Christian morality the Illuminati has long espoused the objectification of women as displayed in 1789 during the French Revolution (engineered by an Illuminati conspiracy) when a half-naked prostitute was placed on the altar of the Cathedral of Notre Dame and extolled as the ‘Goddess of Reason.’19

Further still, Jay-Z?s recording company, Roc-a-fella records, was named after the

late Illuminist and New World Order architect David Rockefeller.20 Additionally, his Rocawear company logo is the astrological symbol of Virgo and alchemical symbol for Mercury which are both employed in the Masonic Craft. 21

One observer, DocMoreau (a twenty plus years hip hop vet and Jay-Z fan), on the website Above Top Secret.com notes: ?There are numerous accounts surrounding Jay-Z and illuminati symbolism in his lyrics and videos. While much of it seems to be conjecture, there is enough ‘truth’ in the findings that the story continues to have legs. Perhaps they are examples of overzealous attempts by Jay-Z to seem ‘connected’, or perhaps they are examples of him actually being so.

?However, here is one example that is not conjecture. In his 1996 song D’Evils, from his debut album, the chorus is a sample that states: ?Illuminati want my mind, soul, and my body. Secret society, tryin to keep they eye on me?

?The whole song is about rising through organized crime, but the following lyrics give some insight to his mindstate:

?That’s right it’s wicked, that’s life I live it
Ain’t asking for forgiveness for my sins, endz
I break bread with the late heads, picking their brains for angles on
all the evils that the game’ll do
It gets dangerous, money and power is changing us
And now we’re lethal, infected with D’Evils…?

?More examples of Jay-z’s use of occult/illuminati/masonic symbolism can be found extensively throughout his work. So either Jay-z was ‘enlightened’ or he himself accumulated a vast knowledge of the esoteric on his own. Either way, he is spot on with his use of symbolism. Plus his reputed cocaine dealings in his past (glorified in his lyrics) point to at least some connection to the ‘shadow government’ and the CIA. Jay-z is connected, that much is for sure?There are many others out there questioning Jay-Z and his possible connection to the Illuminati. A simple Google search will unearth many discussions on the topic.

?So yes, I believe that Rhianna’s Umbrella song probably does have ‘something’ more to it.? 22

Even the imagery, in which the umbrella is used as a sex symbol representing at one and the same time the male sex organ and the woman?s skirt under which is the female sex organ, is not without Masonic significance as it is in keeping with the androgynous Masonic/occultic doctrine of Baphomet.

According to the Creed of the Masonic Gnostic Catholic Church (one of which is located in Barbados on River Road) also known as the Ordo Templi Orientis (O.T.O.) ?Baphomet can be seen as the Dialectic Union of Opposites? the sperm and egg united in the zygote; Yod the Father and Heh the Mother united in Vav the Son? the Androgyne, the Hermaphrodite? the double-headed eagle of the Freemasons? the Demiourgos which manifests in the Middle Space between the male Great Power and the female Great Thought? the Sun and Moon conjoined; the Point [the phallus] within the Circle[the vagina]? the Hexagram (as union of Fire & Water)? the Unicursal Hexagram (as Sun [male/female] and Moon [female/male] united by the 4 Elements)? the Emblem of Venus[female]; the Emblem of Mars[male]? the Square [female] and Compasses [male]…? 23

This doctrine allows for all sorts of sexual immorality among Masons and other occultists.

In 1914, the infamous occultist Aleister Crowley, a 33? Mason and the self styled ?Beast whose number is 666?, took over leadership of the O.T.O. in Britain and Ireland. He was an influential member in several occult organizations, including the Golden Dawn. His influence extends into much of today?s pop music culture. Crowley?s stated purpose for the O.T.O. was ?to restore Christianity to its real status as a solar-phallic religion.?24

Further still, Jay-Z?s recording company, Roc-a-fella records, was named after the late Illuminist and New World Order architect David Rockefeller.20 Additionally, his Rocawear company logo is the astrological symbol of Virgo and alchemical symbol for Mercury which are both employed in the Masonic Craft. 21

He was an influential member in several occult organizations, including the Golden Dawn. His influence extends into much of today?s pop music culture. Crowley?s stated purpose for the O.T.O. was ?to restore Christianity to its real status as a solar-phallic religion.?24

One Rihanna fan that saw her perform ?Umbrella? at the February, 2008 Brit awards said: ?Last week Rihanna performed at the Brit awards, and she was inside a neon lit pyramid for the entire performance, with an animated backdrop of rising pyramids. I thought it was odd at the time and completely irrelevant to the song. It was a duet with a band called the Klaxons?The rest of the show was full of occult symbology, with a winged reptile over the award rostrum.? 25

In regard to the performance in question, it is worth noting that there was flashing blue laser light emitting from the apex of the neon lit pyramid. The light came on and flashed brilliantly every time she sang the line ?When the sun shines, we?ll shine together?? Simultaneously, the lighted outline of the pyramid turned to green, and green laser lights flashed on the stage bathing the pyramid and the darkened stage in brilliant green. 26 To the observant eye the pyramid seems to be a depiction of the pyramid at the back of the ?green back? US one dollar bill, which is based on the Great Pyramid at Giza, Egypt, and as noted earlier, is the insignia of the Illuminati/Masonic conspiracy for world control. Even Rihanna?s garb (a tribal-print hooded gown) used during the performance was probably not without occult significance either, as it bore some resemblance to the hooded robes worn by occultists like Druids, Satanists or members of the Golden Dawn. While one fan approvingly said the gown looked ?bizarre?27, the celebrity entertainment site Faded Youth Blog in a review of the performance said ?She appeared in a hooded cloak on a platform above her collaborators Klaxons, who were wearing primitive sci-fi-style costumes, as if they were all part of a post-apocalyptic pagan pop cult.? 28

Incidentally, the Klaxons, who backed Rihanna at the Brit awards, is a rock/new-rave band that are also into the occult and have cut songs revering Aleister Crowley and the Order of the Golden Dawn! Wikipedia The Free Encyclopedia in describing the Klaxons musical style said: ?Klaxons’ music is often supernatural and magic-realist in theme, as shown in a number of song titles and lyrical content. Examples of this are “As Above, So Below” (favourite saying of Aleister Crowley), “Atlantis to Interzone” (a William Burroughs reference) [and] “Magick” (Crowley)?? 29

Interestingly enough, there is currently (at the time of writing) a discussion on line asking the question: ?Music Artist, Rihanna- 4th degree pagan?? The question was raised by a woman who described herself as one who has some nominal experience in pagan religious teaching/training. She indicates: ?I witnessed a (semi-Greek) Masonic ritual?the Masonic rituals I’ve experience have been set up in Greek style or Egyptian style.? Her question goes as follows: ?Is Music Artist, Rihanna- a 4th degree pagan initiate? I was born catholic but am not so naiive that I don’t educate myself beyond Catholicism. I read somewhere in pagan books that some initiated pagan women wear belts on their thighs that symbolize (also to fellow pagans) what degree initiate they are. Since Rihanna was clearly showing off the belts on her legs during her aired concert recently, are these the same leg belts I’ve read of but never seen in pagan culture? Can any of the pagans on here give me a serious answer?? 30

On top of the issue of wearing what appears to be pagan initiate belts, Rihanna has been photographed (as seen below) flashing the occult hand sign known as the ?Il Cornuto? which stands for the pagan god Pan and more so ?allegiance to Baphomet/Satan?!

Backmasked messages

Further to all this, there appears to be some evidence that backmasked messages (words only heard when the song is played backwards) with sexual obscenities are on the ?Umbrella? song track. 31 If this charge stands, this would yet be another occult technique that has been employed by several rock bands in the past.

For example, the song Stairway To Heaven by the occult rock group Led Zeppelin, when played backwards, reveal the words: “Satan is Lord”. “I’ll give you 6-6-6.” “Jesus betrayed us”. “I sing because I live with Satan”. 32

Another example is the song We’ll see if eternal life is meant to be by the group ELO/Electric Light Orchestra. The backmasked message says: “For He is the nasty one – Christ, you’re infernal.” 33

Jay-Z himself has been accused of having a backmasked message on a song which says: “666 Murder, Murder Jesus”. 34 However, some claim the backmasked message is really the work of DJ Danger Mouse who remixed an album called ?The Grey Album? which features Jay ? Z and the Beatles. 35

Be that as it may, it appears that the whole idea of backward messages comes from Alister Crowley, who trained his disciples to think backwards by writing backwards, listening to phonograph records reversed, speaking backwards and walking backwards. Therefore (as Crowley instructed) instead of saying, “I am he” one would say, “eh ma I”.36

The Christian Response

Jesus? statement that the world loves its own (John 15: 19) explains why non-Christians would sing the praises of Rihanna?s accomplishments (regardless of her song?s immoral overtones). On the other hand, the Bible commands Christians to ?Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them? (Eph. 5:11). Instead of singing the praises of Rihanna?s accomplishments the Christian community needs to speak out against the message of this kind of music since it is diametrically opposed to the high moral standards of the Judaeo-Christian faith which Christians are enjoined to up-hold and defend.

Further still and has been rightly suggested, we also need to pray for Rihanna and many more like her that ??God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.? (2 Tim. 2: 25 ? 26)

  1. I know dere was a good reason i din like this song

    but I wonder exactly how many times you have to watch the video to pick all this up.

    my favorite part by the way was when he reversed ella ella eh eh eh to he he he alle alle. that was brilliant!

  2. This song is not about umbrellas. It is not about rain. While I agree with Roger Marshall that it has sexual connotations, I do not see the link to Freemasonry.

    I should also mention that many other pop singers engage in similar displays. The problem is that whenever a singer is criticized, the singer becomes more popular.

    Keltruth Corp.

  3. the person that say they do not agree with Roger Marshall, he need to wake up and get a personal check on reality. Rihanna said she would do anything to further her career, people that say things like that means what and would join aything to be recognized so what makes rihanna different because she is a bajan. i don’t care if the person is from barbados, a caribbean country or any other country in the world.

    So the person so made the comment that if Jenkins is missings an inmate,maybe the person needs a doctor to check his head for a reality check.

  4. Uh, bub? That was ME – da li’l ol’ originator of this here News-Blog, I was who said Jenkins missing an inmate.

    I do not agree with Miller, so what? That’s my right! But if you like Miller so bad than qualify when and where Rihanna said she would do ANYTHING to further her career?

  5. If you watch the arrivals part 30 (good luck finding it) it show her performing this song walking out of a checkered tunnel. Checkered tiles are masonic and occult symbols for inter dimensional beings to cross over. Inter dimensional travel.
    now that video was the real clincher for me.

  6. I THINK THAT ALL OF THE RAPPERS AND SINGERS ARE GOIN TO HELL. IF THEY DONT REALIZE WHO THE ONE AND ONLY GOD IS THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG. YOU CANT WORSHIP A PYRAMID, THAT MAKES ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE! BECAUSE OF THE FACT THAT THEY DONT WORSHIP GOD THEY MAKE THESE SONGS AND DONT REALIZE THAT YOU THINK YOUR SONG CAN BE SAYIN ONE THING BUT THE DEVIL CAN MAKE YOU LOOK LIKE A FOOL. DATS Y I DNT LISTEN TO THESE SONGS CAUSE DEY ALL ARE A BUNCH OF VOODOO AND WITCHCRAFT THAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING AND DONT REALIZE THAT THEYRE SAYING IT BECAUSE THEY DONT KNOW. ITS A HIDDEN MESSAGE AND ITS GONNA TAKE US CHRISTIANS TO REVEAL THE DEVILS PLANS. THINK ABOUT IT JAY Z SONG WAS AGAINST LUCIFER OR THE DEVIL BUT THATS WHO HE WORSHIP. IT WAS BACKMASKED AND IT SAID THE DEVIL MADE HIM LOOK LIKE A FOOL BY SAYING MURDER MURDER JESUS 666. NOW I AINT GON LIE SOME OF THESE GOSPEL FOLKS AINT CHRISTIAN 4 REAL.
    LIKE MARY MARY’S NEW SONG , GET UP…..I DIDNT KNO GOSPEL PEOPLE MADE CLU JOINTS NOW. ITS SOUNDS LIKE A KEYSHIA COLE SONG BUT WITH ONE OR TWO GOSPEL LYRICS. WHAT IS THE WORLD COMING TO? I CANT WAIT UNTIL THAT DAY WHEN MY LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST COMES BACK! IM SORRY BUT EVERYBODY AINT GOIN!

  7. You guys are idiots. It’s just pop music. It has no substance and most certainly contains no “hidden occult message. So fuck off.

  8. I totally agree with marshall.Jay-Z and friends style of hip hop is a religion of self praise crediting only themselves for thier success.

  9. The symbolism is undeniable when looked at within the wider context of what is happening to the world and humanity as a whole. There are dark forces massing for the enslavement of the species: those who own and control this system are luciferian occults by act and admission.

    You don't think they create the culture you live in by design? Some people need to wake up to reality. I can smell something and it isn't coffee.

  10. Let me get this straight-
    You're MAKING FUN of Marshall and his article?? That's interesting. His insights are keen, and I think he defends his views rather well. Not to mention there are number of other media students ( and occult practitioners ) who will confirm his views. At least you showed the wisdom to post his article. That says something. I'm glad you did.
    Thrace

  11. I believe everything they said about this video it does have hidden sexual meaning behind it and yes Jay-Z ugly rass is connected to the secret society if u all to blind to see that that BAJAN GIRL done sell her soul then something is wrong with u cmon her whole persona and character has change dramatically and Jay-Z aint no better he's so EWWW he belongs in HELL!

  12. and it wasn't raining water in the video it was raining fire

  13. OMG, I finally get it. I never liked that song and all the radio stations played it all the time, over and over again. So I just listened to it. It came out in 2007, a year that I actually regret a lot of bad things I did. I think a lot of bad music came out in 2007. This is bad!

  14. WTF??? I KNEW IT, I KNEW IT, I KNEW IT!!!!!!! Ever since she's been working with of for Jay Z she really has become a "good girl gone bad" I mean if you compare her new style of music,fashion, tattoos and all that comes along with it, to who she was in the begining of her career she really has changed and definitely not for the better!!! Beyonce better watch it too coz her music is becoming a bit "dodgy" too!!

  15. I NO HIP HOP IS A RELIGION A LONG TIME,FROM A STATEMENT JA-RULE MADE.OH DID U NO JA-RULE MEANIN MURDER & HE ALREADY MADE HIS MEAN UP TO BE WITH THE DEVIL.OH ITS SUCH A BIG SAME TOSEE OUR FATHER ABOVE MADE US ALL & WE DECIDED TO FOLLOW D DEVIL.NO RIHANNA OUR GD CAR'B GIRL WHO KNOWS ABOUT CHRISTANITY IS NOW A GOOD GIRL GONE BAD,WELL I GUESS ITS D MONEY DAT GOT HER SO,BUT I DO PRAY FOR ALL OF THEM(ARTISTS)I'M REALLY GONNA CHANGE I'M GOIN TO STOP LISTENIN TO THESE DEVILISH SONGS

  16. It does actually make sense.

    If you look at it chronologically:

    1. Umbrella (apparently about her giving in to the Devil as he promisies to protect her)

    2. Disturbia (about her being possessed and going to the dark side)

    3. Run This Town (occultism and ceremony for devil worship)

    4. Russian Roulette (apperently has dark and sinister meanings behind it about death)

    when you read about the analysis of the song lyrics, costumes and video clips, it all seems to indiacte that Rihanna worksips the devil.

    I don't know if it's true or not, but it definately makes sense. There are some very signifacnt symbols in her video clips that represent demonic symbols. It could be a conicidence but it is creepy knowing that it's in a few of her songs, NOT just one.

    Also her album title – Good Girl Gone Bad and her tattoos might suggest her "dark" side.
    She has tattoos of stars on her back, and I read somewhere that stars can have some demonic symbolism.

    It's creepy. But who know if it's true or not?
    People can only assume, but in the end we don't really know what's going on. Besides, even if she did worship the devil, i doubt she'd admit it to the whole world.

  17. WOW. I am just blown away. I agree 110% We are living in a day in age where the devil is in control. He is slowly taking control and conditioning us to this immorality so that we see it as normal. There’s gonna come the day where he will come out completely without disguise and we will be so preoccupied and use to it that we won’t even notice. We are already seeing it- I mean can it get anymore obvious then a song titled LUCIFER. Sad part is I used to be a fan reciting those lyrics which leads me to restate a comment previously stated. The devil is using us to do his work and we don’t even realize it and those who don’t know the truth of Gods word will never be able to see it. We’re fighting a spiritual battle every day yet sadly enough we are so immune to immorality that we are unable to see it. Meanwhile we’ll have people calling us freaks for proclaiming Jesus and putting us down for stating our convictions but when a serious case of satan followers justifiably show and impose themselves we (society) accepts it. All I have to say is that judgement day is soon to come and when it does it won’t wait for no-one.

  18. Rihanna is definitely the most amazing performers in Hollywood. I definitely wish she keeps on performing.

  19. A seriously exciting post – but one I cannot say yes with, I’m afraid.

  20. Everybody think that she’s talkin about sombody’s dick when she sings this song,, but she’s not. She’s talkin about a guys ego ppl. Which is another word for his confidence or wateva U call it. GET ON YOUTUBE AND TYPE IN DEFINITION OF THE SONG? EGO AND YOU WILL SEE BEYONCE IN A WHITE SHIRT EXPLAININ IT!

  21. So let me see if I got this right…..

    Rhianna has sold her soul to the devil in order to have a brilliant music career, is now a pagan who uses umbrellas as phallic symbols to promote sexual promiscuity and pagan devil worship, and is in cahoots with Jay-Z, who is a representative of the Illuminati, in a centuries old masonic/illuminati plot to take over the world.

    ROTFLMAO!!!!!!

    “What are we doing tomorrow night, Jay-Z”
    “Same we do every night, Ri-Ri. Try to take over the WORLD!”

    People like this Mr. Marshall give Christians a bad name. They waste their time examining, in minute detail, every little statement or gesture made by well-known people and finding all sorts of hidden meanings and symbols that point to the occult and devil worship. And it always famous people they target. Never ordinary folks, like your average bus driver or housewares salesman. Apparently the day-to-day gestures and discussions by non-celebrities don’t merit the same treatment.

    More often than not, this symbolism that is “revealed” to them is pure coincidence. I have often propped a big umbrella between my legs in order to free my hands to take a wallet or phone out of my handbag. I’m definitely not involved in the occult. And never once thought that I was promoting lascivious behaviour by doing so.

    Maybe the umbrella is just a metaphor for protection and maybe the rain is just a metaphor for the bad things in this world that seem to be pouring down on your head. Maybe the song is merely a girl affirming to a loved one that when the pressure of the world gets too much, they come to her for comfort and what protection she can give.

    In my examination of free masonry (I have done some research in this area because I wanted to find what all this fuss was about) I have frankly found little to titillate. The Free Mason movement shot itself in the foot by insisting on secrecy for what are, as far as I can discover, a bunch of harmless rituals and rather silly myths. The most plausible origins are among the master stone craftsmen in the dark ages when few people had knowledge and skills. There may a few weirdos with queer ideas among the bunch but that is normal in our society.

    The Illuminati…. are a myth. If they are real, its been quite a few centuries of their scheming to introduce a new world order and they aren’t much closer. Since they got started on this idea, the world has kept on changing, often rapidly, and I bet that when that happens they have change tack and start again. They had better get move on, the longer they take, the harder its going to become. (And it is unlikely that a black man would be involved, isn’t the new world order supposed to run by white men?)

    Pagans and devil worshipers have placed their bets on a losing horse, read The Book of the Revelation of John in the Bible. the last three or so chapters are most instructive in this regard.

    This is fear-mongering based on a bunch of old-wives tales and long-ago debunked false “theories”. Rather like “The DaVinci Code”.

    I hope Mr. Marshall doesn’t believe in that book either!

  22. Great Site… Amazing! Greets from Belgium

  23. I didn’t quite get the point this to begin with. But when I read it a fourth time, it all added up in my mind. Thanks for the insight. Definitely something to think about.

  24. Rihanna is a North American R&B/Soul singer. Most of the world would think of her as a traditional dancehall singer who splurged onto the US entertainment scene unexpectedly.

    Evan Rodgers arranged for her to go to New York to meet Jay-Z, CEO of Def Jam Records. He heard her sing and knew she was going to be big and for more than just one song.

  25. I heard a rumor the yesterday that she uses the tarot cards to find lyrics for her songs. I understand that she is an intuitive and it just came naturally.

    However bear in mind that, I had several disappointing experiences with tarot cards until this spring when two things occurred.

    First, I was given some rider waite tarot cards.

    Second, I bought a book by Gerd Ziegler. Wow. what a book! His words genuinely helped me unpack the images and get a sense of what i might acquire from them. I prefer to sit with the cards I draw and contemplate them on my own first, but there are some cards that just are not as forthcoming as others and that is where remarks from the book come in.

  26. I don’t agree with Marshall.
    Seriously what is it with Christians in and around the USA? It’s all about conspiracies with them. Nearly every song is about the illuminati or the devil.
    I should just say I am a Humanist and a Rationalist. I can be seen a something bad if you’re lunatic enough. I don’t believe in the devil nor any gods. Why? I learn my history. I can trace to where the early Christians got the idea of the devil and its not even bad. Satanism came with Christianity because Satan as he is displayed is a Christian idea. Did you know there’s even debate whether it’s 666 or 616 which is in much older scripture. You can see rihanna might have used symbols that we have appropriated as humans to represent something we label as “satanic” and that we have made bad ourselves.

    You know what, I believe that Christians would buy this sort of thing because they are irrational. Reading the bible quite a bit that is said in it is just plain nasty. I wouldn’t touch it. I’ll take my chance in limbo because the world would be grim if the Christian god was true. Shot me, I’m from Europe. I’m not alone in my country let alone continent in being rationalist.

  27. Wonderful insight:-)

  28. well ,,,, even though rihanna is a mason and her songs have secret messages through them and they haave all that SEXUAL ATTITUDE AND ACTION she’s still a good singer and her songs are pretty good regrarding if shes a mason or not !
    KTHANKSBYE !
