Brian Liebman, the man behind "Yeezianity," wants to clear up the misunderstanding behind his newly founded religion and make it known that his purpose is to establish faith in humanity and not to elevate Kanye West to the stature of Jesus Christ.
Liebman, 23, who prefers to be identified as BMAN, his "artist" name, says the contentious idea behind Yeezianity steers away from idolatry. And although he says his admiration for the rapper is anything but worship, BMAN finds no shame in desiring to be like his "model."
After revealing his identity as the founder of the movement, BMAN received negative feedback from Christians and nonbelievers alike. He said he was negatively portrayed and misrepresented in the media as an unsocial individual and unemployed yet privileged by way of his parents' income, which prompted him to contact The Christian Post to establish the truth behind his motives. more >>

Katy Perry's "Dark Horse" performance at the 2014 Grammy Awards has been criticized by many for its dark theme and portrayal of witchcraft and satanic symbolism. However, even though the somewhat vague song lyrics contain references to love and witchcraft, the meaning behind her "Dark Horse" song may in fact be drug addiction.
The pop singer departed from her usual bubbly themes Sunday with a Grammy performance some called satanic, and the creepy performance had many seeking answers as to what the song really means.
