The other night, a friend and I were discussing the pros and cons of the guy she's currently dating. Pro: he has an 8-inch wang. Con: he is a major conspiracy theorist. "What do you mean?" I asked. "Oh, you know, he thinks 9/11 was an inside job, that Osama bin Laden has been dead for years, and that Jay-Z is member of the Illuminati," she explained, rolling her eyes. "Wait, what?" I was aware of the 9/11 and Osama nonsense, but while I had heard of the Illuminati -- more on that in a minute -- the gossip-hound in me was super curious about the Jay-Z angle. "Jay-Z is in the Illuminati?" "Yeah, that's what he thinks," my friend said. "Jay-Z, Kanye, Rihanna, Beyonce -- all of them. He even thinks that the whole Kanye West/Taylor Swift incident at the VMAs a few years ago was actually planned by the Illuminati as Taylor's initiation." "Excuuuuuse me?" I said, completely stupified. "Yeah, look it up when you get home," she said. "It's all over the internet." Oh, and friends, did I ever look it up and this silly talk is all over the internet...
