Since the concept of dissociation/split-personality and mind control has been at the forefront of my thoughts, and the possible strange connection it seems to have on the politicians and celebrities we see in abundance all over the media (both in the past and in today’s society) – I felt compelled to delve a little deeper into this phenomena and see if we can tie in a very popular sports event to the growing rise of questionable content people are being exposed to because of it.
So as a curious researcher, I wanted to take the 11 most memorable super bowl halftime performances, as proclaimed by cnbc writer Sarah Witten, and see if I can make any connections to how many of these artists have (or had) an alter ego, and if there were any strange behavior or allusions that these celebrities may have displayed that would give away some kind of mental and/or physical disturbances.
Let’s begin, shall we?
DISCLAIMER: This post is not meant to debase, defame, or debunk anyone’s persona or reputation. It is only meant to be an objective look into the commonalities that an outside observer would see when comparing these celebrities and their famous lifestyle as an artist and their performances (whether it be a personal performance and/or a stage one).
1. (1993) Michael Jackson
Michael Jackson Super Bowl 1993 Performance HD
Starts off with a relatively nice (aside from occasionally touching his… nether regions – classic Michael Jackson) and crowd-pleasing performance, along with some choreographed dancers, and ends with the “Heal the World” song and the sweet images of children in the audience as well as real children unifying on the stage. Then we have a globe depicting the whole world and the song’s message in itself.
(There’s so much more I can say about this performance, but that would take me into political territory, and I don’t want to derail the topic of this post…)
We all know about the accusations of child molestation and the many surgeries he’s been under, but something that not many people may know about Michael Jackson, is his interest in art – showing what appears to be a haunting look into his mind and what could be depicting duality and dissociation. Although “art” could just be a way to express oneself and may have no deeper meaning, it may also give an insight into one’s mind and what is lurking underneath.
2. (2002) U2
U2 – Superbowl Half-Time Show 2002
U2 pays a tribute to the 9/11 victims, listing the names behind them on a huge screen; no doubt touching the heartstrings of many Americans. Not only that, but he also opens up his jacket at the end of the performance to reveal the American flag on the inside. Again, I do not want to get into the politics of it all, so will just leave it at that…
Alter ego? – YES
Mr. Macphisto – “Mr. MacPhisto is a stage character created by Bono for the Zoo TV tour as it wound through Europe in 1993. The name refers to Mephisto (sometimes written as Mephistopheles), a demon in German literature, who works for Lucifer.“
Besides his performance as Mr. Macphisto? (no offense, although I’m not going to lie, I love his gold outfit…) And besides his connections with all of our “favorite” people? Like: Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Gates, Bill Clinton, the WEF, etc.?
You can also check out the subliminal messages that the band (whether they were aware of it or not) played in the background during the concert in 2011 Glastonbury at the same link as above. Or check out the video below and see for yourself.
Not unusual behavior per se, but a proclaimed life-changing experience that made him address a “brush with mortality.”
Below quotes from The Sun:
“I was on the receiving end of a shock to the system myself, a shock that left me clinging on to my own life like a raft,” he writes.
“It’s an arresting experience. I was arrested.”
He describes “facing a wall with my hands up over my head . . . the force screaming at me not to move.”
“I won’t dwell on it,” he adds. “I don’t want to name it. In a reality TV world of minor/major melodrama, I can spare everyone that.”
3. (2004) Janet Jackson
Janet Jackson Super Bowl XXXVIII Halftime Show (2004)
While there were many cameos during this performance, including P. Diddy, Nelly and Kid Rock, it was Janet Jackson’s wardrobe malfunction at the end that inevitably stole the show. We started off with a sexualized dance choreography, then went into the rock performance of, well, Kid Rock. Then finally the finale where Justin Timberlake tears off a part of the costume that Janet Jackson was wearing, revealing one side of her chest.
Alter ego? – YES
To put it bluntly, she allegedly has two alter egos (at least…), one named Damita Jo and the other Strawberry. Apparently they are so hyper-sexual that some of the records they produced are banned in some countries.
With that being said, research at your own risk.
(So from what I understand, Janet Jackson is sexual. But her alter ego, Damita Jo, is even more sexual. But the question is, is she sexual enough? The answer is no. And so another alter ego is made, who’s even more sexual-er than the other two personalities.)
Not including the need to produce two different alter egos to justify the highly controversial actions and freedom to express oneself with extremely explicit lyrics and strutting their stuff, there is also the questionable choice of (ahem) decoration that Janet Jackson adorned herself with that just so happened to be exposed to the super bowl viewers.
Was this deliberate? Or an honest accident that has no bearing on any symbolic meaning and that Janet Jackson just thought was a nice, kinky addition to her bodily enhancement?
There are many theories as to what the symbol that Janet Jackson was… wearing, means. The above link is just one of them that some speculate it could represent.
Other than that Janet Jackson just liked the design.
4. (2005) Paul McCartney
Paul McCartney Live At NFL Super Bowl XXXIX Halftime Show
What is undoubtedly a much calmer and low-key performance compared to the previous years, we see Paul McCartney (supposedly…) and some members of his band play a few sets of songs for the audience. Fireworks and some light shows accompany them which is, to be honest, a nice reprieve from the overly gratuitous onslaught from the previous year’s version.
Although Percy Thrillington was basically a made-up invention by Paul and his wife, Linda, and not so much an alter ego, the fact that he tried to build this character and gain a sort of mysterious fame through him is quite telling.
The Fireman is more of a collab between Paul McCartney and the producer/bassist known as Youth.
Well, considering that this Paul McCartney may, in fact, not be Paul McCartney at all, and instead is who some people claim to be William Shears Campbell, then I’d say that the unusual behavior award goes to Billy Shears, who has apparently kept up his appearance as Paul McCartney all these years. (Although if this is true, obviously some people didn’t buy into it.)
Of course, another theory is that the old Paul really is dead, and it’s the new, alter ego of Paul taking over. Since he seems to enjoy playing as different personas…
Then there’s tons of theories that The Beatles were tied into the CIA, doubles, mind control, drug propaganda, on top of so much more different suspicions:
I want to take the opportunity here to remind everyone to do their own research on these matters. I do not claim that everything that these websites are saying is true. There is so much misinformation, conspiracies, theories, speculations, etc. and coverups involved, that it is hard to dig for the truth. Please take everything in with an open and discerning mind, and not automatically believe everything at face value.
5. (2007) Prince
Let’s Watch Prince’s Super Bowl Halftime Show, The Best We’ve Ever Seen
I don’t title these videos, so I wouldn’t exactly label it “the best we’ve ever seen”, nevertheless, I’m sure it was a fun performance for the audience (however, I have been desensitized to the glitz and glamour of celebrities due to their connections with what I’ve seen as the corrupt entertainment industry, and so have a hard time getting excited from any of these shows…) With that being said, the perseverance that these performers showed (complete with dancers and a huge, dedicated band) staying through a downpour and playing rather spectacularly in it, was a delight to see.
Alter ego? – YES
Several of them.
“The Purple One told Oprah that he had “another person” inside of him, sex undetermined, and created music as different characters or under different aliases.” – The List: Prince’s alter egos and aliases
They’re right. I didn’t know about any of those things. I don’t make it a point to know about celebrities lives. But now knowing those things, and some other things I’ve uncovered while researching, gives me a deeper insight into this man’s life and the struggles he must have endured. Both from what life throws at us, and at the hands of other people. And also what he himself has dabbled with. Whether willingly or not.
Of course throughout this post, “unusual” is subjective. What may be just a fun hobby for someone, could be something strange and unusual for someone else. While it’s not kind to ridicule or make fun of someone with different interests, we also have to be aware that sometimes these “interests” may be a detrimental side effect from trauma, mental and/or physical abuse, etc., or perhaps have a hidden agenda on its own to manipulate the public on how to think. (Whether it actually came from him or his handler(s).)
“One day Prince’s head producer approached Monson and Lizz Luce to say Prince needed a symbol. She didn’t say why—Monson and Luce assumed it would decorate an album cover—but said he wanted the icon to fuse the astrologically inspired Mars-male and Venus-female symbols, and he wanted it soon.” – The Fascinating Origin Story of Prince’s Iconic Symbol
The above site seeks to expose some theoretical connections between Prince and the Illuminati.
Yes. We all know it’s a “conspiracy”, but Prince himself is known for being a conspiracy theorist as well.
And as we all know, there’s nothing more “unusual” and “bizarre” than someone being a conspiracy theorist, as the msm and social media giants love to remind us every single day.
Perhaps Prince trying to expose a corrupt government agenda is what got him killed off, as some people speculate.
6. (2009) Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band
Bruce Springsteen – Superbowl Halftime Show HD 2009 XLIII NFL
Possibly known as THE Most American singer in the states (although some people will disagree with that label…), I took extra care to watch out for unity and “meeting in the middle”, as Bruce Springsteen urged in his 2021 super bowl jeep ad (which ironically got removed after he was allegedly caught with, at least one, DWI…). Needless to say, I didn’t really see so much “unity” at this super bowl performance, as I saw what, to me, appeared to be a highly propagated concert with a concerted effort to highlight black people. And although Clarence Clemons was part of the E Street Band and the only black person playing directly at this venue, we didn’t even get to see him at the end, with the camera panning out but unable to capture him, who seemed to be at the far left end of the video.
Shame. Wasted opportunity.
Alter ego? – Debatable
The Boss – Is this an opinion piece? Or based on fact? I’m not sure. And I’ve already wasted 13:40 seconds of my life watching the whole 2009 super bowl performance, and, to be quite frank, don’t feel like spending even more time digging any deeper onto this story. That’s my opinion, at least.
Bad Scooter – Some people have proposed the theory that Bruce Springsteen is Bad Scooter, the character in his songs, mostly to try to dissect the lyrics in relation to Bruce Springsteen’s life. And of course, the initials of both of the names. B.S. (kind of funny, in hindsight)
This video attempts to make the connection of Bruce Springsteen to the characters that he mentions in his song. Which actually isn’t that unusual. It’s something I’m sure many artists do and what I’d do myself if I were writing a book or a song, movie script, etc.
I’ve already derailed a bit on to the political zone, which I kept trying not to, and now here’s another zone I probably shouldn’t approach but will.
First off, I am not saying that being a Catholic is unusual behavior. But I will say that, unfortunately, there seems to be a slight connection between people of a catholic background, and what can be termed as a difficult lifestyle. And I have not even tried to look at the political or religious views of the previous super bowl performers on this list. But after seeing some statements from Bruce Springsteen about his religious upbringing, compelled me to open up this subject.
“[Much of my music is a result of] being completely brainwashed by Catholicism in my formative years. It’s given me a very active spiritual life – and made it very difficult for me sexually!“
“Once a Catholic, always a Catholic.“
I’m not exactly sure what Mr. Springsteen means by these quotes, but it’s not the first time that a catholic background has been blamed on a complicated view of the world.
7. (2013) Beyonce
Beyonce – Super Bowl 2013 Halftime Show
Now, I am honestly trying to look at these with as much impartiality as I can, although I let loose a little on a couple of the previous ones, so I am going to try my best to be unbiased.
Again, I can see “unity” alive and well as I see nothing but female performers on this stage. As if making a statement that men are not welcome here. Or that they are pandering to the male population and making it hyper-sexual to appeal to them. Or both! (or neither, but how realistic is that?…)
Alter ego? – YES
Sasha Fierce – Even if you’re not into the celebrity gossip or stay up to date in their worldly affairs, the word of her alter ego probably crossed your ears or eyes at some point. If not, then there’s no better time to look into it, if you’re interested.
And then, of course, there’s the idea that Sasha Fierce is actually a demon, possessing Beyonce.
Although to be honest, I look worse than this when I’m angry. Does it mean “demonic possession”? Not necessarily.
This video shows Beyonce rocking back and forth in a steady rhythm in the company of Jay-Z. Her heavy-lidded eyes seems to indicate that she is either dazed, tired… drugged, maybe? Some people have pointed out that the rocking motion may be a means to self-soothe due to stress and/or anxiety.
What do you think? Stress? Psychological issues? Mind control?
8. (2015) Katy Perry
Katy Perry Super Bowl Halftime Show 2015 Live | FULL Performance | NFL Super Bowl XLIX
(Oooh, I love ads as soon as I’m about to watch a concert. And all of a sudden I have a sudden urge for a Pepsi.)
What may seem like an innocuous concert may in fact be rife with symbolism. I can’t get into all of them here or in any of the other performances – since it is not something I have studied in depth, but there are better outlets that can break it down extensively. (TheVigilantCitizen and IlluminatiWatcher) They go into it in a very detailed manner, and although I do believe in some of the shady going ons of the “elite” and their use of symbols, I also think maybe in some cases it may be reaching.
“A lot of people are living in fear from something that happened in their childhood, or some form of PTSD they picked up along the way, and I created this wonderful character called Katy Perry that I very much am, and can step into all the time, but I created that character out of protection,’ she told The Observer.”
– Katy Perry created her character for ‘protection’ because she was too scared to be herself
Yes, she faints on stage, maybe from exhaustion? But some people have pointed out that she fainted at pretty much the same point at a different concert, and that it was part of the performance so she can get a costume change. … I don’t know about you, but that’s a really strange reason to fake faint on stage. Was it all an act? Or just a coverup?
Unfortunately, the video for this session is not available. I have been trying to find it and will update this post if/when I do. I have noticed that plenty of websites have this same video mysteriously disappeared from their site. If you come across the video and know where it’s available or where I can find more information, please let me know.
An alleged quote from the video from Page Six (where the video is also missing):
“The therapy session eventually ended with Perry picking a card out of the therapist’s ‘angel bowl’ “to see what the angels tell her”.
And after Perry draws out the word “freedom” she absolutely loses it, bursting into tears.”
9. (2016) Coldplay
Coldplay’s FULL Pepsi Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show feat. Beyoncé & Bruno Mars! | NFL
Now I have to admit, back in my early days of not really paying attention to symbolism, lyric meanings, the music industry in general, I have been guilty of liking some of Coldplay’s songs. But now, I don’t know if it’s because my metaphorical eyes are open, but I’m seeing “symbols” everywhere, even in this relative harmless show. And yes, I can see how people would enjoy the different artists, bands coming together and having a standoff, but then coming together at the end. It seemed like a fun show, even if I don’t agree with some of these artists’ views.
Alter ego? – YES
The Nappies – Honestly, I’m sorry to subject my readers to some of this content, because I’m usually about exposing hypocrisy and getting the truth out to the public, so again I’d like to warn you to please click the link above at your own risk. (Or don’t click on it at all.)
I wonder if some of these “alter egos” is just a kind of fantasy escape from their everyday, normal personas, and that they actually do want to dissociate from, say, a personality like The Nappies, for example, (which honestly just looks like ridiculous, goofy (if not immature) frivolity from a group of guys), so that they don’t have to tie in these “freedom of expressions” with their traditional selves.
Well, besides all the “illuminati” symbols they seem to display all over their work, same as pretty much every single artist on this list, there is also the suspicious circumstance that when I get close to revealing what seems to be real controversial subjects regarding this band, it has been deleted. Now we know that censorship is not anything new, but for some of this material to be really difficult to track down, is pretty bizarre.
There were a few websites with some links/videos missing to what they were referencing, but the link below delves into the nitty gritty of what Coldplay and some of their work might mean. This seems to be an effort on the part of the writer to give their opinion on the band and some of the symbolism that was used and their meaning. I am not taking it as fact, but just as an objective look.
10. (2017) Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga’s FULL Pepsi Zero Sugar Super Bowl LI Halftime Show | NFL
With a rather acrobatic start to the performance by Lady Gaga, I can only imagine how much time and effort went into some of these shows. It’s definitely not to take away from the stamina and practice all of the dancers have to pull shows like this off. Including the other performances, of course. And when you take into some testimonies from mind control victims, or those under hypnosis, they tend to be able to endure a lot more physical duress than the average, ordinary person. Just thought I’d throw that out there. Even Beyonce herself said in an interview that there are just some things that Sasha Fierce can do that she herself cannot.
A more detailed look into the identity of “Jo Calderone”:
Unusual Behavior?:There’s actually quite a bit. From her very slowly getting into a vehicle:
(Is this just a publicity stunt?)
To her cheekily showing who her allegiance is for:
And then her strange behavior of covering her eye right after the host says, “Good Lord.”
(Which seems pretty on par with the whole Al Roker / Holy Ghost debacle.)
And let’s not forget Lady Gaga’s close relationship to Marina Abramovic, which is huge news in itself thanks to the “spirit cooking” wikileaks fiasco.
11. (2020) Shakira and Jennifer Lopez
OMG, not fair. I have to do both of them? (This one’s going to be short, because I’m burnt out.)
Shakira & J. Lo’s FULL Pepsi Super Bowl LIV Halftime Show
I am trying not to be mean here, so I will just say we have more singing, and more dancing.
(By the way, did you know, “Back then, the Roman government kept the Roman people pacified by offering them free food and rousing entertainment in the Roman Colosseum. Now, “bread and circuses” applies to any civic or governmental entity — or any situation, really — in which the masses willingly accept short-term solutions to ease their discontent.” – What does ‘bread and circuses’ mean?)
… Where’s my free food?
Because I’m honestly getting to the end of my sanity, and yes, we all display unusual behaviors here and there (some more than others and who seem to be tied to some kind of nefarious agenda), here are some symbolism from both Shakira and Jennifer Lopez that are shown throughout their videos/performances, etc.
Not so fun fact: Not even half way through this list, I had a huge headache and wanted to throw my hands up in the air and declare that ‘yes, they all have an “alter ego” ‘, because apparently it’s a prerequisite of becoming a super-duper-uber mega star. But, I pushed on and finished the list legitimately. Sort of.
Now whether these people are/were really suffering from an alter ego or dissociation program of sorts, only the ones involved would know. It could be simply that these are aliases or nicknames, meant to give the performers more fame and fodder. Or side projects to tackle something new and different.
But the similarities of each performer to the ties of some kind of hidden cabal is quite glaring and hard to ignore. Each one has connections to certain parties and organizations and is surrounded by so much symbolism. I know some people just excuse this away by saying that it’s just an “artistic expression” and it doesn’t mean anything… but when you combine the bigger picture compared to the individuals behind the scenes involved, and then you dig even deeper into what all these symbols mean, plus the testimony of others trying to get their voices heard about this agenda, a strange (ancient) plot can be seen.
And let’s not forget. MK Ultra and mind control is a REAL program, stated by the CIA themselves. It is heartbreaking that these individuals are being manipulated and controlled against their will. And far be it for me to suggest that a worldwide dominance is aimed for by tptsb.
THE MEDIA IS THE ANTICHRIST
Fact checking is extremely important. I want to reiterate not to take everything at face value; no matter what you read, where you read it from, or who you hear it from. And to be clear, do not rely on “fact checking” websites to give you accurate information either. These are just as likely, (if not even more likely…), to feed false information and false debunking accounts to manipulate the reader. Please take everything into consideration before adhering to a certain narrative – and always keep your mind open to other possibilities.
