Is it just us, or is there something about celebrities that seems super suspicious? If you want to take a trip with us down the conspiracy theory internet rabbit hole, we'd love to know: How did these stars get so famous? Who helped them on their climb to the top? And is it possible that maybe — just maybe — there's some kind of secret society that ensures the hottest celebrities stay hot?
To answer the last part of your question, we can go straight to the horse’s mouth. The official Illuminati website (yes, it is “Illuminati Official”) says, “The Illuminati is an elite organization of world leaders, business authorities, innovators, artists, and other influential members of this planet. Our coalition unites influencers of all political, religious, and geographical backgrounds to further the prosperity of the human species as a whole.”
Because this secret task force designed to save the world is so darn mysterious, many people think celebrities are in cahoots. While the original Illuminati was founded in the 18th century in Bavaria, plenty of online communities are convinced that it is the famous folks who now run the secret society. But if your favorite celebrities really are playing puppet master behind the scenes, wouldn't you want to know?
