Conspiracy theories have been circulating since before the 19th century. Honestly, knowing humans, probably even longer. Some of these conspiracies really make for some controversial legacies (flat Earth, anyone?). Combining this with our fascination with celebrities’ lives and their downfall , we’ve concocted some weird theories. Throw the dark world of music in there, and you might as well have made Snow White’s poison apple. From Illuminati associations to animal body parts, here are the weird conspiracies in music.
Shawn Corey Carter, stage name Jay-Z, is a rapper and producer also famous for being married to Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter. The couple has various conspiracies surrounding them, but the weirdest must be Jay-Z’s time-traveling abilities. The conspiracy that he can time-travel all started from a photograph by Sid Grossman of a Harlem scene in 1939. The man in the photo looks like Jay-Z and reflects the rapper’s mannerisms. A second theory then emerged that if he can’t travel back in time, then he must be a vampire who has stayed alive all these years. How else can immortality be explained?
The more likely explanation for the facial similarities of the man in the photo is Jay-Z is related somehow. Perhaps a twice-removed cousin of his great grandfather.
