5 Of The Craziest Pop Conspiracy Theories

From secret children to mind control, here are the craziest conspiracy theories


There are some pretty mad and some equally amusing conspiracy theories about the pop music world out there. 

From lizard people to pretend children, super fans have a fascinating imagination.

Their ability to draw together 'evidence' from the most unexpected of places is impressive, if not totally convincing. Check out some of the best conspiracy theories below.

Conspiracy Theory Number One

'Jay Z and Beyonce are members of the Illuminati'


The illuminati here refers to a secret society that has control over the world. The whole world and all events. Everything. 

The irony is, that the 'Illuminati' actually refers to a historical group, founded in 1776, that aimed to reduce superstition and religious influence over everyday life - it was opposed to any kind of centralised power.

However, the Illuminati that Jay Z and Queen Bey are supposed members of, actually controls the world. That's why they're so successful. It's the only explanation. Right?!


Side note, Formation has the lyric 'y'all haters corny with that Illuminati mess'. Is this a denial? Or proof? Who knows.

The conspiracy theorists can't get enough of Beyoncé, as another popular Beyoncé conspiracy theory was that she faked her pregnancy. 

Apparently, she had a surrogate carry Blue Ivy to avoid gaining weight. It was nicknamed 'babygate' by the Australian news channel that conducted the interview fuelling the rumours. 

Ignited by a crease in Bey's dress - as when she sat down, her dress folded in an odd way - the spark soon started a wildfire that ravaged internet forums globally.

The Australian show released a video showing Queen Bey sitting down from another angle, to  reassure the speculators that there is no way she could have been wearing a fake baby bump.

Conspiracy Theory Number Two

'Larry Stylinson'

Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson are 'lovers,' according to some One Directioners. They've persisted, despite Tomlinson's relationship four year relationship with Eleanor Calder and 5-month-old baby, Freddie Reign, with Briana Jungwirth.


Some fans even believe that Tomlinson's baby isn't real - fictional for the purpose of discouraging rumours of a relationship between Styles and Tomlinson.

This theory delves pretty deeply into obsession, with fans pouring over a long lists of Twitter accounts, Instagram photographs and newspaper front pages and claiming them as evidence that baby Freddie isn't real.

Conspiracy Theory Number Three

'Lorde is actually twice as old as she says'

Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O'Connor a.k.a. singer Lorde, has been accused of being much older than she claims to be. When Lorde first released her debut album 'Pure Heroine', she was only 16-years-old.

The internet went mad, and insisted that she must be at least 27-years-old, although some went as far as to say that she was in her 40s. 

Lorde responded sarcastically in an interview with Vanity Fair by saying 'Hi, I'm Ella. And I'm actuallllllly 45.' 

The investigators referred to themselves as 'Lorde Age Truthers', on a mission to find out Lorde's real age, which was eventually resolved with the release of a birth certificate. Although some say that the certificate isn't real...will they ever find out the truth about her age? Nobody knows.

Conspiracy Number Four

'Katy Perry is a Brainwashing Robot'

One of the more bizarre conspiracy theories out there on this wee planet that we call Earth, is that Katy Perry is actually a robot, brainwashing the public with communist propaganda. 

Apparently, a secret underground organisation created a robot using Russian technology, and 'they called it Katy Perry.' 

Is this one the most far-fetched? She has been known to shoot whipped cream from her boobs so... 

Conspiracy Number Five

'Madonna is Lady Gaga's mother'

Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, or as we know her, Lady Gaga, is rumoured to be the secret child of 'Like A Virgin' singer Madonna. 

There are similarities between the two - they are both Italian New Yorkers, and they're both lauded for being controversial.

The year that Gaga was born, 1986, was the same year that Madonna released 'Papa Don't Preach'  - a song about teenage pregnancy. 

Naturally, this means that Madonna herself was probably pregnant, and her and Gaga's matching blonde locks makes a maternal relationship the only explanation!
