Is there anyone that hasn’t been linked to the Illuminati recently? It seems anyone bearing a triangle on their clothing or throwing suspicious signs up in the air must automatically be a member of the supposed secret society.
American celebs like Beyonce, Jay-Z and Lil Wayne are all apparently senior members, but the accusations aren’t just being made in the States; our very own British stars are finding themselves accused of membership by superstitious conspiracy theorists up and down the country.
For the record, we at Pappzd think the whole thing is nothing more than a playground hype, you really should dismiss it about the same time you realised Nostradamus’ predictions are as vague as a teenager caught with a pair of Nikes outside Footlocker during the riots.
However since it is such a topic of conversation at the moment, we thought we would have a look at which UK urban celebrities have been linked to the Illuminati, and why.
So here they are, the UK urban artists linked (unsubstantively) to the ‘Illuminati’.
If you’re looking for the person that is most unlikely to be a member of the Illuminati then Giggs is your guy. Nevertheless, Hollowman still hasn’t escaped rumours that he has joined the secret organisation.
A few years ago a video (which has now been removed) was posted on YouTube which theorists pointed to evidence that Giggs might be a member. But the rapper was quick to talk the hardest and shut down anybody’s suspicions, claiming that he’s just a ‘street dude’:
If Giggs is in the Illuminati, somebody might want to let him know. And surely if he was, his Illuminati connections would get him a Get Out of Jail Free card, like K Koke.
Being signed to Roc Nation, (founded by one of the biggest Illuminati suspects, Jay-Z) it was only a matter of time before K Koke was also accused of joining.
Last year the rapper was charged with attempted murder, but was released from jail a few months later after the charges were dropped. Believe it or not, some have said that he ‘sold his soul’ in order to be freed early and continue with his music career. And it probably didn’t help that when he came out, he was throwing the Roc sign (a diamond shape, also presumed to be an Illuminati sign) around left, right and centre in his music video for I’m Back (Welcome Back).
A video on YouTube was made explaining why certain music artists, such as K Koke and Skepta, are definitely members of the Illuminati.
This year rumours were circulating that Skepta was a part of the secret society after he wore a Moncler jacket, bearing that infamous triangle symbol.
The Twittersphere jumped to conclusions once again (clearly they know nothing about luxury clothing brands), assuming that it was an Illuminati sign. The Boy Better Know star was not impressed and responded by tweeting:
Skepta also addressed the rumours in his collaboration with N-Dubz for So Alive in 2010, where he said:
Stories, rumours and accusations so I gotta stay self conscious of my hand gestures before they call me a Mason or say that I’m working with Satan…
However, some still believed, saying that he said this as a cover up. Their reason? Because at the end of the video he is seen throwing himself off a building in what could be described as a ‘sacrificial manner’, while wearing a body warmer with yet another triangle on it.
Keisha Buchanan fell victim to Illuminati rumours when she uploaded a picture of herself on Twitter wearing a top that was apparently straight out of the Illuminati womenswear spring/summer collection. Or something.
We all know that interesting fashion choices are a surefire way to get yourself noticed and no doubt that is what Keisha was trying to do here. She should have known that what she was wearing looked particularly Masonic, what with the triangle with an eye inside it and the matching triangle earrings. Oh, and look her nose is triangle. And you can’t see it but so are her privates. Incontrovertible evidence right there.
However, people that don’t pay mind to conspiracy theories may also notice that the symbols on her top could just be interpreted as Egyptian hieroglyphics. Of course, theorists will tell you the Ancient Egyptians were all Illuminati; “What shape’s the pyramids, bruv?”
Despite our scepticism, Keisha being a member of the Illuminati could explain why the original Sugababes are reuniting after all this time.
Another member of the Adenuga family, JME joins his brother Skepta on this list of secret society suspects.
But seriously, could anyone imagine JME being in the Illuminati and not accidentally mentioning it in one of his thousands of daily tweets? Funnily enough, he did mention it on Twitter, but only to silence those accusing him. Earlier this year, the 96 F**kries star tweeted:
Clearly someone that loves to provoke a reaction, JME also asked on Twitter how he could get in touch with a Freemason. But you would have to be a bit foolish to think he was being serious.
A video called ‘JME – Exposed – Illuminati’ was made last year to prove just how far fetched some of these conspiracy theories are and the ridiculous ‘facts’ they’re based on. It uses the BBK member and his tweets as an example.
More often than not, Leona Lewis manages to avoid being controversial (or maybe that’s just her personality), so it’s quite surprising to see that she too has been linked to the Illuminati. And it’s not because she survived with a Bleeding Love for weeks and weeks… Did you see what I did there?
The main reason people have accused the X Factor winner of selling her soul (and we don’t mean to Simon Cowell) is for her Better In Time video, in which she is lying on a black and white apparently ‘Masonic’ checkered board.
The visual also shows Leona wearing a black dress (supposedly symbolising death) and subliminally signalling the Illuminati pyramid with her hands. There is even a black horse, which apparently refers to the Apocalypse. *Sighs*
Although Miss Lewis has a secretive air about her, we doubt it’s anything to do with being a part of the Illuminati. She’s just usually really good at hiding from the paparazzi. We say usually…
Given that Tinie blew up in such a short space of time and has reached such huge heights of success in his career, it’s only right that the new found fame comes with the standard Illuminati price tag.
And let’s be honest, his album cover for Disc-Overy probably added fuel to conspiracy theorists’ fire. And Overy? What do ovaries represent? Women. And what shape are women’s bodies on toilet doors? Talk done!
His video for Pass Out has also been cited as proof to the claims, as it starts with an image of a halo around Tinie’s head and there are pictures of triangles flashing on his sunglasses at various points too. In fact, someone has kindly broken down the entire video on YouTube, explaining how each part relates to the Illuminati and a description reading ‘I don’t care if you don’t get it, the Illuminati is real’.
Unfortunately for Tinie, and also Labrinth in this case, someone has gone to the trouble of noticing Illuminati signs in the Earthquake video, which is effectively just pointing out all the triangles and pyramids… Presumably because triangles are not a fundamental requirement of architectural structures, like… why would you need triangles anywhere if you’re not Illuminati?
We like to think that Tinie’s success was a little more to do with his hard work and a little less to do with any soul selling to Satan.
The thought of signing your soul away might actually explain why Jessie J pulls some of those crazy and unattractive faces that she loves so much, but that’s not why she’s been affiliated. Once again, the rumours circulated when she released her visual for Price Tag, which apparently wasn’t about the money money money but about mind control.
The kiddie theme and the inclusion of toys and puppets is said to represent Jessie being manipulated by ‘higher powers’. The one eyed teddy bear at the beginning that has an arm torn off is also a subliminal message apparently, as it symbolises the destruction of innocence and helplessness. Or it could be a teddy with a missing arm.
To top it off, the one-eye sign with a blank stare is not only one of Jessie’s signature poses, but is known to be the sign of the Illuminati pawn too. Doh!
After rounding up some of the UK urban stars that have been accused of being Illuminati members, we’ve noticed a few things that may help the rest of the celebs avoid being affiliated in future:
- Never have pyramids in your videos, in any form. Don’t even stand with your legs apart.
- Never deny rumours that you’re in the Illuminati because only somebody who is in the Illuminati would deny it. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t. So don’t.
- Never EVER wear clothing with triangles on it or make any triangular hand gestures. In fact, just deny triangles exist.
- If you want to film a Niggas in Paris spoof, don’t do it outside The Louvre
- Don’t do anything with your hands, don’t even put your hands on your hips as it creates a triangle
