Updated Conspiracy of the Moment: Lady Gaga + Illuminati
Since Lady Gaga released her video for "Telephone," a friend of mine started entertaining a conspiracy theory about her. No, it's not about her being intersexed (hermaphrodite) because that, my friends, is already clarified in the video.
So what's his theory? It might sound funny but he theorizes that Gaga is part of the Illuminati.
The Illuminati, a secret organization that supposedly runs the American government up to this day, is a pretty shady subject. There's no concrete proof of the Illuminati's current existence, but it does make for good thrillers (see Angels & Demons).
Anyway, my friend questions how she skyrocketed to fame very quickly. He argues that it wasn't that long ago when she released her debut single "Poker Face." And now, Gaga dominates the American (and perhaps international) airwaves. He speculates that a major portion of her ascent to fame can be credited to the Illuminati--they underhandedly promoted her.
So how is Gaga a part of the Illuminati, exactly? His answer: she is their messenger. Music is a channel for messages, particularly subliminal messages. Maybe the Illuminati is trying to convey something to the public. Maybe something along the lines of: Beautiful, dirty, rich Monster feels speechless over paparazzi-loving paper gangstahs. Oh, I don't know!
On a side note, do enjoy/criticize/ogle at her music video which was filmed in dusty Los Angeles. If you see the scene with the trains, that's the view I get every time I take the Metro to Pasadena!
Update: Lady Gaga's debut single was "Just Dance" not "Poker Face" as indicated in the entry. Also, there are more resources about this conspiracy such as this site.
