Thanks OP for bringing this information about the blatant moral corruption thats rife in entertainment today. Its not new, but it nonetheless needs to be brought to others attention as much as possible. Actually, there was one thing you brought up that was new to me. It was you bringing up that Jay-Z's whole foray into the symbology stuff began when he teamed up with that Rick Rubin. That is a name that I've definitely been coming across more as I've been reading more into the secret society corruption in the music industry.
I remember well when Jay-Z began to get bigger and more mainstream in the late '90s and early 2000s. At that time, I was going through middle school and high school, so alot of the kids/teens then were really into him and he was everywhere, especially all over MTV on Total Request Live. I always wondered why people liked him so much. I never thought he was a particularly good rapper. Always seemed lame to me. Fast forward to the present day, when I'm older and a bit wiser to the world, and I can see why and how he's obtained such an insanely large, Pope-like status in the music industry, with cushy, rich lifestyle it brings. He's definitely made some devil deals to get where he is.
Finally, I'd like to leave off with this. About a day or two after the Super Bowl, a family member had the TV on Access Hollywood and, like everyone else on the boob tube, they were talking incessantly about Beyonces half-time performance. Billy Bush (whom, if i remember correctly, has relations to the Bush family) had brought up, briefly, that there was "buzz" about the trademark hand-gesture that Jay-Z uses in association with has label and how it had 'Illuminati' connections. The sole purpose of this brief segment was to denigrate the people who are bringing these nefarious and Satanic connections to light. It was explained away by reminding everyone that its "just her paying homage to her husband and his record label which is a diamond.", to which he ended by giving a mock shudder and grin. We all know him and their ilk are full of # and know damn well what theyre doing. It's clearly a pyramid hes making with that gesture, which regularly has him staring one eye through. If he wanted it to REALLY resemble a diamond, then he should be flipping that thing upside down so that the thumbs are at the top and the other 8 fingers are pointing down. They know the heat is on, and they're doing all they can to keep everyone looking in the direction they want them too.

You're giving these "acts" way too much credit. This stuff is used to sell their product because it's not any good. In fact, you could possibly be here promoting them with these threads.
Their influence is not nearly as strong as you may think. Anyone who knows anything has better taste in music.
This stuff is a laughable blip (akin to disco) on the timeline of music history. It will not be remembered or revered, leaving little to no impact.
Tell that to the millions of kids who follow them and idolise them.

Now, apply this to Lady Gaga's fans and how she calls them Little Monsters. This certainly isn't a positive pet name for a child.

No. It's actually using the "as above, so below" reasoning.
All you have to do is look at Lady Gaga. If she actually believes that people are beautiful and special the way they are born, why is she always in costume? If she really believes what she's preaching, she should walk the walk.

Actually the message in that song is one of equality. Its about it being ok to be different (gay, a geek, a different color whatever). Now I can see why some organisations would dislike a message of acceptance, it sort of takes their power base away just a little
MTV called him "the most important producer of the last 20 years." In 2007, Rubin was listed among Time's 100 Most Influential People in the World.
Because she is a performing arts grad.... they tend to not be logical. You are reading too much into this.
