Kanye West’s latest artistic endeavor, the musically-driven, short film “Runaway,”has been a hot topic among his fans, with #runaway and #askkanye becoming Twitter trending topics after the film’s Saturday night premiere on MTV. Apparently, some viewers felt the project invoked symbolism of the Illuminati, an ancient secret society that has been linked to contemporary conspiracy theories suggesting an elite group of leaders control the world unbeknownst to the general public.On Sunday (October 24), ‘Ye took to his Twitter page to humorously address rumors that he’s a member of the purported society and worships the devil. Apparently, Yeezy has no clue what the society even is.

“I’ve got question about “the illuminati” … what is it exactly ??? … and why do people think pop stars have a membership???!!! LOL,” he tweeted. “Is illuminati and devil worshipping like the same thing … do they have a social network that celebs can sign up for?”

The MC also joked about which new tech gadgets and social media outlets would work for his so-called satanic lifestyle.

“Question… can you devil worship on the new iphone??? LOL!!!” he typed. “What’s better for devil worshipping Iphone or the Droid… Does lucifer return text… is he or she on Skype? Don’t wanna be sexist.”

‘Ye even took a crack at sparking a devil-friendly trending topic.

“#DoyouthinkLucifer uses in in ear monitors or signature Beats by Dre headphones???!!!” Yeezy wrote.

The MC did say he was cool with legendary hip-hop spinner and producer DJ Clue, who’s known for lacing many of his projects with a chant that sounds similar to Illuminati.

“I am down with Cluemanotti though,” he wrote. “That’s my boy.”

Yeezy joked about claims that he’s down with the devil on Twitter, but he has also recently addressed one of his lyrics that may have riled up fans. In a sit-down with MTV News after the premiere of “Runaway,” broke down the meaning of a rhyme from a freestyle he kicked last year that lit up the blogosphere.

“There’s this line where I say, ‘I sold my soul to the devil, that’s a crappy deal,’ and all these people said, ‘What you mean you sold your soul to the devil?’ But when I say it, I’m saying, when I allow other people’s ideals to interfere with what I know is true to myself, that’s the devil,” West explained. “So, it’s like, people talking mess on the blogs is the devil or …trying to call me names, that’s what the devil is. And me thinking twice about what it is that’s really in my heart because of what people’s reaction would be is me selling my soul to the devil.”

The lyricist maintained that he will no longer let others’ opinions stifle his creative expression.

“You’re on earth for only 80, 90 a hundred years,” he said. “I have to create from my dreams, from the dreams I had as a 5-year-old, and use everything — all the greatest people and all the tools I have around me — and ask as many questions as I can to help facilitate and bring this out. And this [film] is one of the first examples of a dream coming true.”

Yeezy isn’t the only hip-hop star to catch heat about a visual supposedly packed with satanic imagery. Jay-Z and Swizz Beatz batted away rumors, earlier this year, that the slick video for their collabo “On to the Next One” was riddled with demonic references.

Arkells: Whistleblower

This is an interesting video on MTV right now by the Arkells. It’s about a CIA whistleblower in Langley, Virginia. The band plays the whole song inside a glass pyramid. It also makes references to the hidden hand of freemasonry.

Lyrics:

Words, they keep dropping.
They keep spilling from my hands on to paper.
I’m in Virginia.
It’s 3am and I can’t fall asleep.

Just a little bit of faith is what I want,
it’s what I need in my institutions.
So I wait, so patiently…

But when it happens, over and over…
Can we hear it for the whistleblower?

Wait! Won’t you look around you?
Won’t you look beside you now and figure out the score?
Read. Skim down the front page and you’ll see my given name presenting yours.

You can say it any way you want.
you can frame it any way you can.
But I can tell you I’ve read the fine print written by your steady hand.

You can say it any way you want.
you can frame it anyway you can.
What’s behind your good intentions…
On your heart, a hidden hand?

Anna Kendrick Takes on Wicked Men

LCD Soundsystem’s “Pow Pow” music video has been unearthed. It follows beautifully-dressed Anna Kendrick when she goes from one club to another with three guys. “At midnight, she came to collect the souls of the wicked men,” so it was explained. Director David Ayer furthermore said, “In this world, Anna’s sort of this shape-shifter, I guess you could say.”

As for message behind the video, Ayer had this to say to MTV, “No matter how big you are, how important you are in this temporal world of ours, there’s somebody more important. You have to answer for your sins, and that’s a little bit of what this video is about. And the person who sort of represents the power in this video isn’t, like, some hardcore gangster guy, but little old Anna Kendrick kinda being her shy self.”

“Pow Pow” appears in LCD Soundsystem’s third studio album “This Is Happening” which has been on sale since May this year.

Joe’s comment: At the end of the video Kendra takes the wicked men to a Masonic Grand Master with a gavel. The Master Mason will make the punishment fit the crime
