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.
Elvis Aaron Presley has often been coined the “King of Rock and Roll.” Although some celebrities were falsely claimed dead, fans found it hard to believe Elvis was gone. They said he was still alive. After he died in 1977, there were multiple headlines of people seeing Elvis alive during the 1980s and 90s. Examples include seeing him buying a fuse in Michigan, getting phone calls from him, and seeing him as a background extra on the film Home Alone. Gail Brewer-Giorgio even wrote a book titled “Is Elvis Alive” in 1988.
The theory was Elvis faked his death to get away from the pressure of fame. Fans believed his coffin, which was difficult to carry, had a cooling system in it. The truth is it was made of copper. Others believed he found a body double or dummy for his funeral since the body didn’t look like him. With his heavy drug use and the reality that dead bodies have pale complexions, it is normal for people to not recognize corpses.
