Top 10 CRAZY Celebrity Conspiracy Theories


If it’s online, it’s gotta be accurate, right? Welcome to WatchMojo.com and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the Top 10 CRAZY Celebrity Conspiracy Theories.



For this list, we’re taking a look at celebrity conspiracy theories that are so ludicrous that they couldn’t possibly be true, but have still gained a ton of attention nonetheless.



#10: John Travolta’s Was Replaced With Roy Black




Following hits like “Saturday Night Fever” and “Grease,” John Travolta’s career took a nosedive with several critical and financial duds until his Oscar-nominated comeback as Vincent Vega in 1994’s “Pulp Fiction”. According to this theory, though, Travolta died in 1991 and was swapped out with German singer Roy Black. Although Black died from heart failure on October 9, 1991, his passing resemblance to Travolta has lead some to believe that he faked his death and took the actor’s place. Of course it’s unclear how Travolta would’ve died or why Black replaced him. So it’s safe to assume that Travolta is still … staying alive.





#9: Miley Cyrus is a Sleeper Agent




As “Hannah Montana,” Miley Cyrus played an ordinary schoolgirl who was secretly a pop sensation. If you think that premise sounds contrived, try this one. Speaking on “The Alex Jones Show”, Korn singer Jonathan Davis laid down his theory that Miley was a sleeper agent for the Obama Administration. Apparently Obama was using Cyrus and her controversial twerking to manipulate the media, thus distracting the public from America’s more pressing issues. Unlikely, but then again Elvis actually received a Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs badge from President Richard Nixon. So maybe the idea of a special agent Cyrus isn’t all that farfetched.





#8: Stephen King Shot John Lennon




Who killed John Lennon? Well according to this theory: Stephen King. But, it was Presidents Nixon and Ronald Reagan – according to theorist Steve Lightfoot – who gave King the clearance to take the Beatle out. Lightfoot suggests magazines like Time and Newsweek published cryptic messages foreshadowing Lennon's death, and notes King's resemblance to the man the law and history say actually killed John Lennon. Of course, this theory raises far more questions than it could ever answer. What was Stephen King's motive? Why'd the other guy take the fall? And why would the US Government enlist an independently wealthy author to assassinate a world-renown musician? It all makes about as much sense as “Maximum Overdrive”.





#7: Taylor Swift is a Satanist




As you might have noticed, many of the conspiracies on this list stem from a physical likeness two celebrities share. In addition to being a musical artist, Zeena Schreck was perhaps best known as the daughter of Anton LaVey, the Church of Satan’s founder. Zeena was the Church’s spokesperson for almost five years until she stepped down as High Priestess in 1990. Singer-songwriter Taylor Swift was born a year earlier in 1989 and would grow up to be a dead ringer for Zeena. Is Swift actually an Illuminati clone of Zeena? Well, if that were the case, Zeena probably would’ve appeared alongside Swift’s other personas in her “Look What You Made Me Do” music video.





#6: Pizzagate




First there was Watergate, then there was Nipplegate, and now Pizzagate has taken the web by storm. Gaining traction shortly before the 2016 US presidential election, this conspiracy claimed that Comet Ping Pong, a Washington, D.C. pizzeria, was connected to a child sex trafficking ring. The theory also implicated Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and other members of her political party. Although these rumors were ultimately debunked, the theory made headlines again almost a year later. This time, Trump supporter Liz Conkin accused John Legend and Chrissy Teigen of being mixed up in the pedophile ring based on a photo of their one-year-old daughter. Who ordered the fake news story with extra cheese and anchovies?





#5: Keanu Reeves Is Immortal




The entertainment industry is full of people that don’t look their age, or act their age for that matter. Given how much musical artist Lorde accomplished before even turning 21, one theory suggests that she’s really in her 40s. An even crazier conspiracy asserts that actor Keanu Reeves is an immortal being. The years have certainly been kind to Reeves, as he’s shown little age throughout almost three decades in film. The plot only thickens when you study portraits and pictures of several figures throughout history that look just like Reeves. It’s almost as if he has a time machine right out of “Bill & Ted.” Either that or Keanu really is the one.





#4: Michael Jackson’s Chemical Castration




The King of Pop was no stranger to conspiracy theories, but this one is by far the craziest, and disturbing. Following Jackson’s death, his physician, Conrad Murray, was convicted of involuntary manslaughter. Murray went on to write a tell-all book in which he claimed Jackson was chemically castrated as a child. According to Murray, MJ's testes were intact but he singer received injections to maintain his higher-pitched voice. This wasn’t the first time such an accusation had been made, as Professor Alain Branchereau previously wrote that Jackson had been castrated to combat his acne.





#3: Stevie Wonder Isn’t Blind




Outside of maybe Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder is arguably the most recognizable blind musician who ever lived. This theory insists that Wonder was never visually impaired and has been faking his disability for decades. Many have supported the conspiracy, including sports journalist Bomani Jones, although the so-called proof is pretty thin. For example, it’s been argued that Wonder can’t be blind because he attends basketball games. Wonder also once caught a falling mic stand and reportedly strangled Boy George in a playful manner. Just because someone’s blind doesn’t mean they’re completely oblivious of their surroundings, though. So it’s kind of hard not to roll one’s eyes at these accusations.





#2: Avril Lavigne Died and Was Replaced




When it comes to death rumors, Avril Lavigne is one celebrity that the Internet simply won’t leave alone. It’s been widely speculated that singer-songwriter committed suicide back in 2003 and her record company substituted her with Melissa Vandella, who is either a doppelganger or a clone. The web is littered with before and after photos that compare “Avril” and “Melissa.” The song, “Slipped Away,” also supposedly alludes to Avril’s death, particularly the lyric, “The day you slipped away was the day I found it won’t be the same.” This conspiracy reportedly originated from a Brazilian fanpage and went on to spread like wildfire. It might finally be time to let the theory die, however.





#1: Katy Perry is JonBenét Ramsey




Who killed JonBenét Ramsey? Well, according to some, the six-year-old beauty pageant queen wasn’t murdered at all. Instead, her death was merely a hoax and she grew up to become... pop star Katy Perry. The theory is largely based on the physical similarities between Ramsey and Perry, as well as their parents. Of course there are several gaping holes in this conspiracy, like how Perry was born almost six years before Ramsey, not to mention the complete lack of motive, or, you know, a point. Honestly, the whole thing just sounds like a really morbid version of “Jem.”
