RIHANNA’S NEW SKIN CARVING HAS WAGS WONDERING ALOUD IF SHE’S part of the centuries-old secret society the Illuminati allegedly aimed at dominating the world.
Just above Rhianna’s left collarbone lies a fresh slanted cross tattoo, which according to legend is a symbol used among the Masons years ago.
This is not the first time Rihanna has been associated with the organization of rich elists supposedly seeking to control our fate. Rihanna’s YouTube fans questioned the 24-year-old’s imagery of the “All Seeing Eye, Eye of Providence” symbol in her Rude-Boy video. Rapper Kanye West, Beyonce and Jay-Z all have Illuminati symbolism in their videos and rappers are constantly subject to these rumors. E! Onlinecalls the theories the “latest iteration” of the “nexus between African-Americans, power and paranoia that has simmered for generations.”
Of Jay-Z — “the evidence is everywhere and hidden in plain sight.” Philadelphia Weekly mocked in 2010. “It’s in his videos. It’s in his lyrics. It’s in the pyramid-shaped sign he makes with his hand, which you foolishly believe represents his Rocafella/Roc Nation labels.”
Nicki Minaj was even rumored to be part of the organization, and rapper Waka Flocka Flame pooh-poohed the claims, dismissing the allegations s “bulls–t.”
The website CrustySocks puts the Illuminati at No. 5 on its list of “world’s greatest conspiracies.” And John Scura, author of Battle Hymn: Revelations of the Sinister Plan for a New World Order, claims the “ultimate goal is complete control through a New World Order where a socialist dictatorship ensures that every citizen is tagged, mollified and productive.” Hey, that sounds like Obama’s plan to end anonymity on the web? Internet behemoths Facebook and Google are also working hard toward that goal too.
Apparently the Illuminati likes to keep the secrets ‘all in the family,’ figuratively speaking, so members marry the like-minded. So does this mean Rihanna as no choice but to reconcile with Illuminati member Chris Brown, rumored to have “sold his soul” to get his new album Fallen Angel on the charts?
A world conspiracy afoot? Or does it take a rocket scientist to explain that odd tattoos, controversy and mystery just plain sells.
