Love, Life and Pomegranates
2.5.12 by Q3
A prominent part of the BTIKM music video has Adam squeezing a pomegranate – that appears to symbolize a heart. More than squeezing the pomegranate, Adam is actually destroying its vital life force.

The forbidden fruit of The Garden of Eden may have been a Pomegranate. Pomegranate was the symbol of fertility in ancient Persian culture. Ancient Egyptians regarded the pomegranate as a symbol of prosperity and ambition. Pomegranates were known in Ancient Israel as the fruits which the scouts brought to Moses to demonstrate the fertility of the "promised land". In Hinduism, the pomegranate (Sanskrit: Beejpur, literally: replete with seeds) symbolizes prosperity and fertility, and is associated with both Bhoomidevi (the earth goddess) and Lord Ganesha (who is also called Bijapuraphalasakta, or the one fond of the many-seeded fruit). Introduced to China during the Tang Dynasty (618-907 CE), the pomegranate (Chinese: 石榴; pinyin: shíliu) in olden times was considered an emblem of fertility and numerous progeny. thumbsup.gif

Adam Lambert faces "Serial Killer" charges!! fear2.gif
It appears from the Behind the Scenes of BTIKM video info that a few pomegranates were harmed in the filming of this video.

Yesterday afternoon an online protest was started by PETP (People for the Ethical Treatment of Pomegranates). The campaign was on Twitter and the members of the previously unknown group used the hashtag #DBMTPoms. If you look on

Here are a couple sample Tweets that include She continued with the big question that Pomegranate Lovers around the world are asking –

Pom Goddess
@PFETPoms
President and founder of PETP (People for the Ethical Treatment of Pomegranates).
I have researched this trend and determined that the hashtag #DBMTPoms stands for Don't Be Mean To Pomegranates. It is a protest the needless killing of multiple pomegranates by @AdamLambert in his music video "Better Than I Know Myself".
I cannot find out much about this protest group. It appears to have just popped up out of nowhere.

I love Adam’s new video, but I also understand where the pomegranate rights activists are coming from. Why did Adam have to use real pomegranates? And why did he need to rip the vital life force out of them? What do you think?

I find myself unable to stop watching this video, what with all the hidden messages throughout. I love how light Adam tries to play chess with dark Adam. What a sweet and tranquil guy that light Adam is! And I love how at the end, dark Adam realizes the two sides most co-exist, so he reaches through the glass to save light Adam.


I know! It's amazing the different things that you find in the video with each viewing that you didn't notice before, isn't it?

Yes! That's what makes a video sucessful, when you can't watch it just once. And both Adam's look unbelieveably hot LOL.

You got it! I can't tell you how many times I've seen it now. I don't think I've ever watched any of Adam's previous videos this much - ever!

The whole concept has truly made me appreciate this song more. I was never really a fan of BTIKM, but now that I've seen the video (and lets be realistic, it's probably been about 100 times at this point), I can honestly say my feelings have changed about the song. Dare I like the song now?

I was looking to buy it on iTunes. I'll keep my eyes open as to when I can do it.

I love the vid. Every time I watch it I find something new and I think it is extremely well executed (and I've seen other comments, but for a brief MV, I think the emotions need to come across pretty quickly which may make others believe they are overdone, but to each their own and did I mention I LOVE IT! - LOL).
