Let's be honest: The world is obsessed with the Illuminati. In fact, it was recently revealed that the gifted Mobb Deep rapper Prodigy was reportedly working on a musical about said obsession when he died last week. Prodigy's idea is genius, really. These days, celebrities can't so much as wear a T-shirt with an eyeball on it without being accused of an Illuminati affiliation.
The Illuminati rumors and theories seem totally wacky — albeit interesting — but are they really that nuts?
Once you've fallen down the conspiracy theory rabbit hole, the evidence mounts quickly and some of it actually makes sense. There's no denying that some celebs definitely do have a habit of throwing up certain signs associated with the underground cult and even seem to give a shout-out with what they wear. Is it possible that maybe — just maybe — there really is some kind of secret society that ensures the most successful celebrities stay hot? It's a scary thing to think about, especially since many believe the Illuminati have demonic ties and special control over the rest of society. But then again, it could also all be a bunch of BS.
