Conspiracy theorists have picked up on the fact that Bey's slay-a-thon was actually an "infomercial for feminism."
YouTube truther Mike Dice shared his take on the performance with the five-minute video "Beyoncé's VMA Illuminati Feminist Propaganda Exposed." But, there's little here that's actually about the Illuminati, and it quickly devolves into a five-minute misogynist rant where Dice basically tells ladies to get "grease underneath their fingernails," "learn how to cook," and calls Bey a "singing stripper." Pretty sure that's not what the Illuminati had in mind, but who's to say?
If this really were a takedown of Beyoncé's Illuminati agenda at the VMAs, Dice should have pointed out that she performed on a stage with a design that mimics the "666" symbol. Or, how during the "***Flawless" portion of the medley, her female dancers formed an army of robots, moving at her command while the word "Feminist" was illuminated larger-than-life on the screens behind her. Plus, when MTV chose to pan to the audience, everyone — even Rita Ora — was singing along. Now, there's the mind control.
