Described on the packaging the fragrances ingredients read as follows; tears of belladonna, crushed heart of tiger orchid with a black veil of incense, pulverized apricot and the combinative essences of saffron and honey drops. Belladonna, Italian for “Beautiful Woman” and officially known as “Atropa Belladonna” is an extremely poisonous plant that causes hallucinations, delirium and other psychological effects like mind dissociation. Ancient folklore tells that Atropa Belladonna was tended to by the devil himself.
Whilst not noted on the packaging, the next key ingredient is a synthetic pheromone based on the molecular structure of male semen. Semen is filled with pheromones that transmit an increased sexual desire to whoever smells it. Semen is also a very powerful ingredient in any spell work or Magick along with blood, which is also a key component of this fragrance.
Blood has a powerful spiritual truth inherent within it. Blood binds the spiritual and physical together.
Essentially she has shed her blood so the masses may wear it. Perhaps ‘mother monster’ as she refers to herself is anointing her ‘little monsters’ AKA fans through her perfume and in doing so consecrating them to herself.
The design of the bottle itself is also of importance. Visually it appears as a black egg-shaped vessel with a gold lid from which long, elegant, gold claws reach to clasp the bottle. The egg is one of the most comprehensive symbols, equally suggestive in a spiritual, physiological and cosmological sense.
The bottle is strangely reminiscent of the egg/vessel that Gaga inserted herself into whilst being carried down the red carpet en route to emerge on stage for her performance of ‘Born This Way’ at the 2011 Grammys. Gaga stated that she wanted to birth a new race. A race within a race.
The egg ritual dates back to Crowley who developed it to invoke the ‘lam’ entity which is the entity or demon that has power over speech. Adolf Hitler was himself a follower of Crowley’s doctrine and utilized the egg ritual for his own desire to birth a perfect race.
ED: Brace yourself. This is truly a nasty dark hole you watch now.
The scenes that schizophrenically dart back and forth on the screen employ classic examples of mind control symbolism. Dissociated vacant eyes, blood curdling screams and tortured facial expressions from Gaga herself. Stagnated and awkward cowering movements. The use of mirrors and mirrored surfaces.
ED: The above images are straight from a black ritual capturing the sexual depravity involved.
The shattering glasses that represent a fragmented mind. The clawed mirror or portal alludes to the ‘Through the looking glass’ concept of Alice in Wonderland which was widely used alongside The Wizard of Oz in Monarch Mind Control or MK Ultra carried out by the CIA. These all equate to the themes of mind control.
Whilst being a rather brilliant concept it is hard to ignore the deliberate themes in the commercial, along with the design of the bottle and the molecular structure of the fragrance itself. Is “Fame” by Lady Gaga just a tongue in cheek publicity stunt or is it indeed a representation of something more sinister?
