    Grammy performance ink blot test

    Hey everyone, I'm still on a Grammy high and am obsessed with Carrie's performance. She first took us on a vocal journey with BA and then on a visual journey with the dress and lights. Btw, she sang the h*ll out of TBC.

    So I've been looking at these ink blots over and over and this is what I'm seeing as it relates to the song or possibly my personality. lol.

    This appears when she sings, "and the preacher said he was a good man". I'm seeing a man running - symbolic of running away from his true self.

    This appears when she sings, "and his brother said he was a good friend". I'm seeing a figure in a mask similar to the mardi gras bird beak ones - symbolic of masking his true self.
    Attachment 29517

    This is an example of the mask that I'm talking about. Attachment 29520

    This appears when she sings, "but the women in the two black veils". It looks like a woman in a veil (on the right) conjuring up something because if you watch the video her hands look like they are moving up and down.
    Attachment 29518

    This appears when she sings, "didn't bother to cry". It looks to me like the woman conjures up this evil entity and she disappears when the evil is released.

    What do you guys see?

    The first one to me, does look like a man running. The second looks like a man being thrown or bucked off of a horse...upsetting the idea, of what he thought his brother really was. The third looks like a nun in her habit, with her hands lifted and praying over something. The fourth looks like the nun is bending and walking towards us...leaving the evil behind her ...in a cloud of dust.

    Doesn't make a lot of sense to have a nun involved...but that's what I see.

    I saw this performance a million times and I hadn't realized now that you said I went to see again and really looks. You're a genius.

    Comparing to what rainbow and Donna see, I guess I'm the psychotic one. lol.

    Good catch Donna, I never realized it mimicked her red carpet dress.

    Similar to "RAD NIGHT" scene from Carrie's movie "Soul Surfer". Awesome thread!

    Omg so I just read that Carries necklace.was.worth.$31 MIL!!! Idk how Carrie manages her money and am well aware that she can afford that but I doubt she would waste a huge part of her.fortune.on a necklace. I never understood this bout celebrities, do they rent the accessory and dresses? Or do they actually spend thousands(if not millions) for.just a night and one time thing? Explain please
