Conspiracy theories are always fun to read, whether you believe them, or not. The ones that involve celebrities, are even better.
When you sign up to become a celebrity, you are giving the rumor mill permission to say anything about you. They don’t care if it’s true or not. As long as the rumors entertain the masses, they will continue to come. It’s only a matter of time before these rumors turn into conspiracy theories. Now there are some popular ones out there that don’t involve the rich and famous, like for instance the theory that the moon landing is fake. As interesting as space travel is, my ears perk up when a celebrities name is thrown and the theory is good and semi-believable. Here is a list of my favorite celebrity conspiracy theories out there.
Avril Lavigne Is Dead
This one blows my mind. First of all, I doubt it’s true, and if I was Avril, I would be so offended. People really hate her newer music so much they went ahead and killed the girl to explain it away. Theorists say she committed suicide in 2003 after the death of her grandfather. The record label then hired a lookalike to keep up the illusion that Avril is alive, in order for them not to lose money. It’s understandable, since her style and music both changed, but I think this is ridiculous. She’s not dead guys, just grew up.
Stevie Wonder Isn’t Actually Blind
This statement, truly knocked me off my chair. Are people really this bored? The theory is that Stevie Wonder isn’t really blind, and has just been pretending in order to sell records. This is based off some pretty stupid evidence. He apparently partakes in a lot of activities usually reserved for people with better vision, according to whoever started this theory. These activities include, photography and attending basketball games. I didn’t know blind people can’t hold cameras, or sit in a stadium. I don’t know anyone who believes this, but good luck to them.
Katy Perry is JonBenet Ramsey
This one is so obviously not true, but it’s fun to think about anyways. As a true crime junkie, I like to think that JonBenet is still alive and living this awesome life. (Even though we know the brother did it) For that reason only, I like this theory. If you look at pictures of the two of them, you can see why people believe it. They look so similar, it’s scary. Especially after Katy died her hair blonde. Anyways, I like this theory, even though I know it’s not true.
Paul McCartney Is Dead
I really don’t understand why fans love to kill their favorite artists. Can someone explain this to me? This theory dates all the way to 1969. Apparently, when you play Revolution 9 backwards, you hear “turn me on, dead man.” Also, at the end of Strawberry Fields Forever, John says “I buried Paul.”He supposedly died in a car accident in 1966. I mean, if you were to get away with covering up a death, I think the 60s would be a good time to do it. There were so much drugs going around, I don’t think anyone knew which way was up. Other things like the new Paul using his right hand while the real Paul is a lefty. Although he has said he’s not dead, this continues to remain the most popular musical conspiracy theory out there.
Lorde Is Actually 51 Years Old
When Lorde first burst onto the scene, we were all shocked to learn that she was only 17! So shocked indeed that some people refuse to believe it. There is a crazy conspiracy out there that she is actually a 51 year old woman who just looks really young. Fans of this theory point to a 2014 interview with Rookie Magazine in which Lorde claims she connected with “The Virgin Suicides” as a teenager. She then quickly corrects herself and states she’s still a teenager. Later, she told Vanity Fair she is actually 45. Have these people never heard of a joke?
