Katy Perry’s music video “Wide Awake” is another offering from the pop music industry that conceals references to Monarch programming within its symbolism. References to this practice occur often in mass media but are often coded using specific symbols and imagery. We’ll look at the hidden meaning of Katy Perry’s “Wide Awake”.
Many articles on this site described how many items of popular culture conceal within their symbolism references to an unknown, horrendous practice: Monarch programming. This technique of mind control seeks to create fully “programmable” individuals and is used by the shadowy elite in fields such as the military, politics and the murky underworld (for detailed information on Monarch programming, read the article Origins and Techniques of Monarch Mind Control). Another area in which mind control (especially Monarch programming) is used is the entertainment business – not only because some celebrities are actual victims of mind control, but because entertainment is used to subtly normalize and glamorize this awful practice through symbolism.
Katy Perry’s video Wide Awake is yet another music video that alludes to the concept of Monarch programming through its storyline and its imagery. While this might not be obvious to most people, those who have some knowledge of the subject of mind control find it extremely blatant.
In many ways, the video resembles works that have been previously analyzed on this site, such as the movies Labyrinth and Sucker Punch and music videos like Paramore’s Brick by Boring Brick. All of these productions visually represent the inner-world of Monarch slaves through a specific set of symbols: mirrors, butterflies (especially Monarch butterflies), mazes and so forth. Not only do these objects aptly portray psychological concepts, they are actual “trigger images” used in mind control on Monarch slaves. Wide Awake fully utilizes this set of symbols, which gives the storyline a deeper, and more disturbing, meaning.
Most mainstream media articles on Wide Awake say that it is about Katy Perry “navigating the maze of fame”. While this might be true, the video cannot be completely explained without considering the element of Monarch programming. For instance, why is Perry shown at sitting on a wheelchair, completely “out of it” inside a health institution? Probably because there is more to the video than meets the eye. Let’s look at the deeper meaning of its scenes.
At the beginning of the video, we see Katy completing the filming of her popular video California Gurls. She is wearing her now famous pink wig. She is fully into her “sexy pop star” persona.
When she enters her dressing room, Katy removes her wig, which symbolically represents her switching to another alter (this gesture was also an important part of Lady Gaga’s video Marry the Night). Katy then stares at herself in the mirror for a while – until she dissociates from reality (dissociation is an important part of mind control) and enters a fantasy world. This world is, in fact, the inner-world of Katy Perry’s psyche.
Katy soon realizes that her inner-world is a dark labyrinth that if full of traps and dangers. She doesn’t appear to know the way inside her own mind. She even gets caught in traps that were placed by her handlers.
Katy realizes that she won’t make it through the maze without an important element – one that has been stripped from her during the her programming: Her core persona. Through fireworks emerging from her breasts (of course), she calls for help and her core persona appears before her in the form of a young Katy.
Katy and her core persona then enter a room full that truly screams out “Monarch programming”.
Looking through the mirror, Katy sees nasty-looking paparazzi. While she is mesmerized by the sight, her core persona realizes that the world around Katy is shattering (inner-worlds of Monarch slaves are programmed by handlers and can be modified or destroyed at will). Desperate, Katy breaks the mirror in front of her and leaves the room, a symbolic act representing her attempting to break out of her programming.
Then next scene is in sharp contrast to the rest of the video. While before it was all about fantasy and mystery, we are now in a cold, sterile health institution. In other words, we appear to be out of Katy’s head and back to reality. Katy appears to be completely “shut down”, sitting on a wheel chair in what appears to be a mental institution. Is this her MK programming site?
Mind control slaves are subjected to all kinds of torture by their handlers. At some point during the “treatment”, the pain, whether physical or emotional, becomes too much to bear and their brain’s natural response is to dissociate from reality. Handlers actually want their subjects to dissociate as it facilitates programming. They use movies such as Alice in Wonderland and Wizard of Oz to program victims to dissociate “through the looking glass” or “over the rainbow”. Up until now, the video took place in Katy’s dissociative inner-world.
While Katy is somewhat of a zombie, her core persona, little Katheryn, is “Wide Awake” and is determined to get out of there. Some people, however, do not want to see that happen.
However, Katheryn’s will-power blasts the horned guys away and even brings Katy back to life.
The lyrics of the song convey this sense of liberation from a deceitful and oppressive state of mind. Here’s the first chorus:
I’m wide awake
Yeah, I was in the dark
I was falling hard
With an open heart
I’m wide awake
How did I read the stars so wrong?
I’m wide awake
And now it’s clear to me
That everything you see
Ain’t always what it seems
I’m wide awake
Yeah, I was dreaming for so long
So, at this point, one might ask: Is this video about Katy actually breaking out of mind control? The rest of the video might answer the question.
Upon leaving the institution, Katy and her core persona find themselves back in the fantasy land.
At this point, Katheryn hopes on her bike and leaves Katy.
Before leaving, Katheryn leaves Katy a gift … a symbolic gift.
The butterfly leads us from the dressing room to a stage, before a performance of the song California Gurls. In other words, Katy (and viewers of the video) have gone full circle and are back at the starting point. This echoes the false rebellion and “escape from nothing” plotlines of other recent music videos, as discussed in The Police State Agenda in Jay-Z and Kanye’s “No Church in the Wild” and Adam Lambert’s “Never Close Our Eyes”. Although a quest appears to have been completed and foes appear to have been defeated, Katy is back in her “sexy pop star” persona, complete with lollipop bras. This is who she is now, a product of the music industry. Her core persona is gone.
Did she learn from something from Katheryn and is now better equipped to face the pitfalls of celebrity? Maybe. However, the orgy of butterflies in the video reminds us that, in the end, she is still under the control of the music industry and the MK symbolism it promotes. Need more proof? Check out her attire while she performed Wide Awake at the MuchMusic Video Awards in Canada.
Katy Perry’s Wide Awake is a prime example of Monarch programming symbolism being promoted in mass media products. While it may be deemed “original” and “imaginative” by many, it is strikingly similar to other MK-themed video analyzed on this site. For instance, Paramore’s Brick by Boring Brick also features a younger (purer) version of the singer, a flurry of butterflies, rooms full of mirrors and so forth. Why are all of these symbols found in these unrelated videos (any countless others)? It is because these symbols are, in fact, related: They are symbols of Monarch Programming mind control. This is the common thread uniting these symbols. It also explains the otherwise puzzling plots of the videos.
Although it is probably the most disgusting and vicious concept known to man, Monarch programming is often referenced in popular culture. And, since Monarch programming is one of the ways the occult elite keeps a stranglehold on many areas, including the entertainment industry, it is often subtly glamorized in mass media. Most people let all of this imagery go straight to their minds without even understanding its true meaning. However, there is one way to not allow these unwanted messages to reach our brains: Be TRULY wide awake.
