Is “Part of me” an alien, an angel or the devil? On Katy Perry
In our previous segment, Katy Perry movie: from gospel to godless, it was noted that she stated, “I sold my soul to the devil.” In light (pun intended) of this it is interesting to read her lyrics and see if she is attempting to send a dual message.
For example, her song “E.T.” appears to be about well, what most pop songs appear to be about, sexual perversion. However, once you view the video (attached to this article) you may want to re-read the lyrics and then plug in a little basic understanding of story lines and symbolism.
First, let us see the lyrics as is:
You're so hypnotizing / Could you be the devil? Could you be an angel?
Your touch magnetizing / Feels like I am floating / Leaves my body glowing
They say, be afraid / You're not like the others / Futuristic lover / Different DNA / They don't understand you
[Pre-Chorus] You're from a whole 'nother world / A different dimension / You open my eyes / And I'm ready to go / Lead me into the light
[Chorus] Kiss me, kiss me / Infect me with your love and / Fill me with your poison
Take me, take me / Wanna be a victim / Ready for abduction
Boy, you're an alien / Your touch so foreign / It's supernatural / Extraterrestrial
You're so supersonic / Wanna feel your powers / Stun me with your lasers / Your kiss is cosmic / Every move is magic
Take me, ta-ta-take me / Wanna be a victim / Ready for abduction
Boy, you're an alien / Your touch so foreign/ It's supernatural / Extraterrestrial
[Bridge] This is transcendental / On another level / Boy, you're my lucky star
I wanna walk on your wave length / And be there when you vibrate / For you I'll risk it all / All
[Chorus and repeat]
Even at pure face value this is pretty bizarre stuff. At one level it is about infatuation with a guy, at another infatuation with an alien and yet, at another level, the actual level suggested by the video, it is about infatuation with the being to whom she admitted having sold her soul: the devil.
One oddity is that the lyrics seem to be about her expressing infatuation for whomever. Yet, in the video she is the alien/devil.
But we are getting ahead of ourselves. In short and generically the video depicts a futuristic world in ruin. A man within a robotic body is lying on a ruined desolate garbage dump of a world. An alien which turns into a human, Perry’s character, descends from space/the heavens to the robot/man and powers him up, as it were. She frees him from the robotic body and they walk off into the sunset, a scene which reveals that the Perry, supposedly human, character actually has goat/faun/deer-like, legs.
Ultimately, the video seems to depict a neo-Genesis, a new beginning which is much like the original beginning and the same old tempter.
Let us now go step by step and describe the video in light (or darkness) of the lyrics.
The video opens to a scene of a wasteland, a styled garbage dump of a world, whereupon lays a mechanical robot with a tear drop shaped form on its chest which is flickering.
Since the video is in collaboration with Kanye West (who also states that he sold his soul to the devil…and the crowd love it, see video here), he appears within a spaceship (which looks like an eyeball of sorts) and sings the following: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ORgUzN-Qgs
I got a dirty mind / I got filthy ways / I’m tryna Bathe my Ape in your Milky Way
I’m a legend, I’m irreverent / I be reverend / I be so fa-a-ar up, we don’t give a ****
Welcome to the danger zone / Step into the fantasy / You are not invited to the other side of sanity
They calling me an alien / A big headed astronaut / Maybe it’s because your boy Yeezy get *** a lot
And after the [Chorus and repeat] part he comes back to sing:
I know a bar out in Mars / Where they driving spaceships instead of cars / Cop a Prada spacesuit about the stars
Getting stupid *** straight out the jar / Pockets on Shrek, Rockets on deck / Tell me what’s next, alien sex
I’m a disrobe you, than I’m a probe you / See I abducted you, so I tell ya what to do / I tell ya what to do, what to do, what to do
Doesn’t that just want to make you buy all of the Katy Perry and Kanye West albums for your little kiddies?
As Kanye’s ship flies off screen swirling silky materials are seen gyrating in space and we see that they are the clothing of an alien which looks like a grey (the well-known alien with a large head and large eyes). This happens at the moment when Perry sins You're so hypnotizing / Could you be the devil? Could you be an angel?
The alien is seen singing the first few lyrics such as Different DNA which may be in reference to the concept of directed panspermia: the view that aliens purposefully seeded life on Earth. There are many such concepts such as that they came to Earth after random chance evolution resulted in humanity and the aliens manipulated our DNA, etc. It could also be in reference to that to which we shall come below which is the plans, by some, to genetically modify human DNA.
Next, the alien being’s cloths turn shades of red and we see that the alien has turned into a human (at least in form) who is the Perry character. Images are flashed which appear to depict life and death: the decaying corpse of a fox, a plant sprouting, etc.
Between the question of angel or devil reference is made to It's supernatural / Extraterrestrial. The question of angel of devil is almost a false dichotomy as Biblically the devil and demons are fallen angels. In this light, they are both supernatural and also, literally, extra terrestrial and they are not of, nor from, the terra, the Earth.
The silky cloths, now more of a flowing dress/gown is now white with styled angel’s wings. Perry’s eyes are seen to be not human but what some, particularly within the alien context, would call reptilian. This has various connotations such as that the devil is described in Genesis in reptilian serpentine terms, as a snake (due to his wiles, craftiness, etc.). Also, the character was initially a grey alien which are stereotypically depicted with solid black eyes but the Perry character has reptilian eyes. Also, something which is difficult to identify is seen reflected in the eyes during an extreme close up of them.
When she sings You're from a whole 'nother world / A different dimension / You open my eyes / And I'm ready to go / Lead me into the light fast images are cut which are violent scenes of a nuclear blast, a cheetah catching a gazelle by the neck, etc.
Whether the Perry character is alien, angel or devil is now made quite clear as we find that she has been falling to Earth. The Bible states:
How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground—Isaiah 14:12
[Jesus said] I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven—Luke 10:18
But this could be about an alien landing on Earth, why bring the devil/satan into it? Context, context, context, as the further context of the video makes this connection. Perry/devil finds the robot laying in the heaps of refuse with its little tinge of life (some little spark of energy). She, now wearing a more form fitting golden outfit, wipes the dust from the robot’s head (glass domed on the front) and it is revealed that inside is a man (who looks to be of African descent but with white skin). She then touches the robot/man’s tear shaped chest piece and it lights up as Kanye West comes back within the space ship to sing the second verse we read above.
The robot/man gets up and when West sings Tell me what’s next, alien sex / I’m a disrobe you, than I’m a probe you / See I abducted you fast cut images are shown of animals having sex. This may be a reference to the theory that aliens/demons had sex with humans which some assert, gave rise to giants, etc. Some read this into Genesis 6:1-2 & 4:
And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they [were] fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose…
There were giants [nephiyl] in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare [children] to them, the same [became] mighty men which [were] of old, men of renown.
Although, the text does not necessarily correlate the actions of verses 1-2 with the results of verse 4. In other words, it does not specifically state that the giants were a result of the sons of God (whomever they were) copulating with the daughters of men.
At this point the Perry character kisses the robot/man through the glass domed head and a very bright light engulfs them. When the light dims we see that the robot body is now gone and the black/white man is left behind.
There may be three meanings—or more ;o)—to this:
1) Firstly, the robot man concoction may refer to what used to be known as biomechanoids and is now known as transhumanism. That is, the attempt by some to meld human biology and technology so as to artificially evolve humanity.
2) The black and white (that he is a “black man” whose skin is white—not cream skin color but actual white) may be in reference to the black and white checkerboard floor design which is found in Masonic structured.
3) The black/white man may also represent the concept of one people which follows form the desire by some for a one world government, one world religion, one new world order, etc.
The Perry character is displaying eye makeup very much in the Isis Egyptian style or, rather, the eye of Horus (a Masonic / Illuminati symbols—perhaps why the spaceship looks like an eye). On the ground we see glass canisters one of which contains the long dead remains of a bird labeled, “pi-ge on : A common bird went extinct 2030.” Another canister contains sunglasses labeled, “Human sunglasses Circa 2011” which are picked up and worn by Perry (such encased extinct animals are also displayed in an uber weird Denver National Airport mural).
A classic metaphor for “worldview,” a way to define, describe and understand what is meant by the term, is the example of putting on of glasses, sunglasses with lenses of whatever color. This is because once we put them on we see everything differently as everything is viewed through the lenses, the new perspective. The lenses re-interpret everything in accordance to our view, our color, our lenses, our glasses.
Next, the bottom of her dress is blown by the wind and reveals that she has the legs of a goat/faun/deer. This is widely used to represent various half human/gods half animals such as the devil, the Greek god Pan, the Roman god Faunus, satyrs which were companions of Pan and Dionysus, etc.
So, what does this all mean? Who knows? Well someone knows because someone wrote the song lyrics, the script to the video, etc. But we do not know what they meant by it and can only discern the obvious and hidden symbolism.
It appears to be a tale of a human race which has been melded with technology so as to make them into automatons, robotic creatures who have all but become extinct.
Understand that luciferians (aka rightly or wrongly as Satanists, devil worshippers, etc.) still consider lucifer as being that which he actually was before his rebellion against YHVH when he became satan. Note that lucifer was the faithful servant of YHVH, the light bearer but then became satan the faithless oppose of YHVH, the adversary.
They view the story of Genesis as lucifer brining revelation to humanity, the knowledge of good and evil, freedom from YHVH’s restraints, etc. This seems to be what the video portrays as the fallen devil is involved in a neo Genesis as it approaches the (apparently) only human on Earth, brings light to humanity, appeals to humanity, gains humanity’s trust and love and walks away leading humanity. Recall that this creature is a deceiver as it was appeared as an alien, a human, a human reptilian, a half human half animal, etc.
The Bible notes that satan transforms/disguises (Strong’s #G3345 metaschematizo) into an angel of light.
To reiterate, someone meant the lyrics and video to mean something and such somethings are constantly being put forth into our culture of a reason(s).
Be vigilant, “Test everything. Hold on to the good”—1st Thessalonians 5:21
