The Wackiest Conspiracy Theories from the World of Music

The Illuminati, generally

No post on conspiracy theories would be complete without a mention for the Illuminati, the shadowy sect who are apparently orchestrating the world from behind a veil of secrecy. Quite why doing so requires the participation of Jay-Z has never really been made clear, but that’s never stopped anyone speculating about how he has recruited other alleged members, like Kanye West and Nicki Minaj. And then, of course, there’s minor MySpace/reality TV celebrity Tila Tequila’s amazingly unhinged rant at the “evil fucks” of the Illuminati, which does become somewhat less amusing when you read the rest of her blog and realize that she probably actually needs legitimate psychiatric help (other recent disclosures include that she used to be Joan of Arc in a past life, that George W. Bush died in 1987 and was reanimated as a zombie at Area 51, and that the Illuminati are trying to kill her.)
