And we’ve put some of the best ones together, just for you. So, prepare to delve into a world of secrets, lies and unintentional hilarity! Here are the 7 craziest conspiracy theories about our favorite celebrities.
Beyonce Was Only Pregnant Once… With Solange
In case you’ve forgotten the infamous Beyonce baby bump scandal, let us refresh your memory. When footage of Beyonce‘s baby bump looking fake first came out, everyone rushed to say that the singer used a surrogate and she wasn’t really pregnant!
But it gets crazier. People claim that Beyonce was never pregnant with Blue Ivy Carter but she was pregnant once before. Who was the baby then? If these conspiracy theorists are to be believed, it was Solange Knowles. According to our conspiracy-loving friends, Bey was born in 1974, not 1981. When she had a baby out of wedlock in 1986, her parents chose to raise them as sisters instead.
Britney Spears’ Meltdown Was Fake
Who can forget Britney Spears‘ meltdown from 2007? It was truly disheartening to see the fame, the media attention and the drugs get the best of the singer. However, if we believe the conspiracy theorists, it was all a lie.
According to them, Britney was secretly employed by the Bush administration. Her main job? To distract the media with her antics, so that the government could get away with whatever they want.
Have you heard of William Campbell? Well, you must be living under a rock because he has been the front-man of The Beatles since 1966.
Urban legend claims that Paul McCartney passed away in a car accident, nearly fifty years ago. He was then replaced by a lookalike named William. Apparently, the Abbey Road album cover signified a funeral! Lennon was supposed to represent a priest, while Ringo and George symbolized the undertaker and grave-digger, respectively. No prizes for guessing what Paul was supposed to be!
The CIA and FBI Murdered Marilyn Monroe
There are a million conspiracy theories surrounding celebrity deaths. But none of them are quite as ridiculous as the stories about Marilyn Monroe’s death.
Though the starlet passed away because of a drug overdose, people claim that she was actually murdered by the CIA and the FBI. Here are a few of the top theories that explain why they killed her:
1. She drank too much and was at risk of divulging sensitive information ‘under the influence’.
2. She took her affair with Robert Kennedy too seriously, and threatened to make it public.
3. She was associated with communists.
4. The organizations wanted to use her death to hurt the Kennedys.
Miley Cyrus Was Murdered by Disney
2007 was a good year for Disney. For Miley Cyrus? Not so much. According to a popular conspiracy theory, the Hannah Montana star was murdered that year!
So, what did she do to deserve that fate? Apparently, Cyrus spoke about her desire for a "normal life" in an interview. This, combined with her non-cooperation with the Disney executives, led to a completely understandable consequence… MURDER! So, who’s the lady we still see twerking on MTV? It’s a clone that Disney replaced Miley with, of course.
La Toya and Michael Jackson Are the Same Person
"If you didn’t take a picture, did it even happen?" This is probably the only thought process that has gone into this conspiracy theory.
Apparently, Michael and La Toya were both the same person, because they were rarely spotted together and there wasn’t enough photographic evidence of them being separate individuals. To add fuel to the fire, the siblings looked alike, which naturally meant that they’re the same person. (Not that, you know, they have the same genes and cosmetic surgeon.)
Lady Gaga Stole Lina Morgana’s Identity
Lady Gaga is a lot of things, but is ‘murderer’ one of them? According to a pop culture conspiracy theory, Lady Gaga (Stefani Germanotta) murdered Lina Morgana and stole her identity!
When Lina was just beginning to gain attention for her music, Stefani auditioned to be a back-up dancer for her. However, "someone" hurled her off a rooftop and stole her style and identity. Two weeks later, Lady Gaga rose to fame. Coincidence? Definitely not.
