[Updated @ September 12, 2012 with new Google Trends graph]
Pretty, innocent look, young (born in ’92) and working for Selena Gomez. Signed a contract in 2008 with Hollywood Records, which is owned by Disney Music Group. A ‘gold’ album in 2009, ‘platinum’ single in 2010 and her latest album A Year Without Rain comes out the 21st this month. I guess that will be a boom as well.from a very young age.
That’s extremely young for a ‘pop star’, right? Signing a contract with Hollywood Records (Disney) at the age of 15 or 16 (not sure what date she signed it). But I guess her PR-agent told her to open a Twitter account quite soon after they signed the contract. Her first tweet was March 9, 2009. So she was 16 at that time. Her first YouTube video was posted on April 4, 2009. But that one still looks like something any teenager could have posted. Anyway, it’s clear that she fell in the arms of mighty scary Disney at a very young age. An age it’s quite impossible to protect yourself from that kind of power.
Headlines like “Disney Star Selena Gomez and General Growth Properties – Give Teens a Voice in the 2008 Presidential Campaign” don’t make me jump as well… I mean. What the fuck? So at August 4 2008, at the age of 16, she was doing promotional work related to the in 2008? What does she know about politics? Nothing. Why does she wants to do something like that? She doesn’t know, her PR-agent told her to do so obviously. Read this quote from that press release:
“I think it’s so important for kids to vote and be heard,” said UR Votes Count national spokesperson and actress/singer Selena Gomez. “Being a teen myself, I think it’s really important we are educated on the issues that affect us all; so when we’re eligible, we’re fully prepared to take on one of our greatest privileges and responsibilities – voting.”
Privileges? Responsibilities? It’s a fucking joke Selena. It really is. Voting is bullshit. It really, really, really, really (lyrics) is. She probably doesn’t even know where England is on the map. And no, that’s not funny. It’s bloody terrible. Used as politics puppet for sure. And no, you’re not thinking. And you don’t think it’s important. Other people TOLD you that it’s important.
Maybe she’s valuable because she speaks Spanish as well? To reach the millions (Spanish, incl. Creole: 37 million) of Spanish-speaking citizens in the United States?
Google Trends clearly shows a boost mid 2009, guess that’s where the Disney’s marketing department really started to focus on this girl to put her on the map:
Her video clips are, as far as I can see, still ‘clean’. Can’t find any mind-controlling symbolism so far, but I just saw one. But somehow I feel there’s something wrong. Maybe it’s not fair to say something like that about someone I don’t know, but it’s just a gut feeling I have.
If you listen to the song below, lyrics are listed below, you could interpret those lyrics in two ways. It’s a song about her:
- the obvious: lover/beloved one
- more far–fetched: her programmer/handler
As I mentioned already, maybe it’s unfair to project far-fetched views on her work. But I guess I’m free to write whatever I want. To analyze whatever I want. I may be wrong, but I may be right too. Time will show me, us.
Lyrics of the song ‘A Year Without Rain':
Can you feel me
When I think about you
With every breath I take
No matter what I do
My world is an empty place
Like I’ve been wonderin the desert
For a thousand days (ohhhuhh)
Don’t know if it’s a mirage
But I always see your face, baby
I’m missing you so much
Can’t help it, I’m in love
A day without you is like a year without rain
I need you by my side
Don’t know how I’ll survive
A day without you is like a year without rain
Ohhohoh, Woooaaahhh woaahh
The stars are burning
I hear your voice in my mind (it’s in my mind)
Can’t you hear me calling
My heart is yearning
Like the ocean that’s running dry
Catch me I’m falling
It’s like the ground is crumbling underneath my feet
Won’t you save me
There’s gonna be a monsoon
When you get back to me
Disney & Mickey Mouse
Can be innocent, but in this world it doesn’t need to be anymore.
I’m afraid, I truly am, that this girl can soon be added to the list of articles on Vigilant Citizen’s “Music Business”.
Edit: just a few minutes after publishing this article, I just Googled “Selena Gomez Illuminati” and found a very good article exposing a lot more shit about her than I could ever have found out in one hour:
Great work pseudoccultmedia!
Wow…. and now I found the video clip ‘Naturally‘, just look at some of the screenshots. I’m too tired to explain what I see, but if you see it – it’s enough :)
