Conspiracy Theorists Think The Rapper Pitbull Predicted The Malaysian Airlines Crash/Disappearance 2 Years Ago

Conspiracy Theorists Think The Rapper Pitbull Predicted The Malaysian Airlines Crash/Disappearance 2 Years Ago
"Two passports, three cities, two countries, one day."

Welp, now I’ve heard everything. A few conspiracy theorists have decided that the rapper Pitbull predicted the Malaysian Airlines plane crash/disappearance two years ago in his song “Get It Started” (above). These folks with too much time on their hands — i.e. YouTube commenters — say the lyrics to the song makes references to certain aspects of the plane’s mysterious disappearance. Specifically, “No Ali, No Frasier, but for now off to Malaysia” and “Two passports, three cities, two countries, one day.” According to the UK’s Daily Mirror:

Viewers on YouTube are convinced the two passports is a reference to the stolen Austrian and Italian passports used by two Iranians to board MH370. They also believe the three cities refer to the capital cities of Malaysia, China and Vietnam and the two countries are Malaysia and Vietnam. Furthermore, they assert the lyrics “No Ali, No Frasier, but for now off to Malaysia” are a reference to Mr Ali, the man who bought tickets for the two Iranians to travel on board MH370.

6 Celebrities With Completely Weird Ideas About Science

One of the weirder bits of news making headlines this week was that our beloved Red on “Orange Is The New Black” may be a little bit kooky in real life. Why would I say such a thing? Because the actress Kate Mulgrew has narrated a documentary with some pretty kooky beliefs about science:  namely, the idea the Earth does not actually revolve around the sun but instead the sun revolves around the Earth. Geocentricism what what?!?  In a new documentary called “The Principle” narrated by Mulgrew, she intones, “Everything we think we know about our universe is wrong.”

Considering this is the woman, Amelia reminds me, that played Captain Janeway on “Star Trek: Voyager,” it seemed a little odd that Mulgrew would be so ill-informed. Turns out, Mulgrew is now saying she was misled into doing the narration for the documentary and that she was simply a voice for hire who should have done more research. Um, no kidding? Didn’t Mulgrew realize she was narrating junk science as the junk science narration was spilling out of her mouth? [Raw StoryAV Club]

Kate Mulgrew, inadvertent or not, isn’t the first celeb to spew interesting beliefs about science. There are actually quite a few celebrities who have made comments about science that gave us a double take. Let’s take a walk through a couple celebs who we think should keep their day jobs…

16 Fashion World Conspiracy Theories

1. Celebrities Are Paid To Be There: It turns out that celebrities’ seeming love for the fashion industry — actresses wearing De la Renta dresses or sitting front row at fashion shows — might not be so genuine after all. Designer Nicole Farhi broke a long standing secret in the fashion world: that celebrities are paid to attend fashion shows and wear designer garments. The Daily Mail reported that pop stars are paid close to $100,000 to lend their celebrity to high end fashion shows for the last 25 years. Read more…

12 Conspiracy Theories About TV Shows

“Jericho”: This primetime drama centered on a post-apocalyptic uprising against the evil, freeloading town of New Bern, Kansas. It was cancelled after one season most likely due to poor ratings but brought back thanks to fan demand, then cancelled again in its second year. Though ratings were again the reported reason for cancellation, super fans claim that government officials feared viewers would take a hint from Jericho’s townspeople and rise up. Read more…

As has been noted countless time in the past 48 hours, Amy Winehouse is not the first talented musician to die tragically at the age of 27. There’s even a name for this subset—The 27 Club or Forever 27—and some of its members include Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain, and Brian Jones. So, are all the deaths just a coincidence or is there some explanation for this eerie phenomenon? After the jump, five theories about the 27 Club. Keep reading »

Lily Allen’s Dad Made Conspiracy Theory Film About Princess Diana’s Death

Awhile ago, Lily Allen took to Twitter in a huff to complain she was not invited to the royal wedding, but it’s probably just as well. See, Lily Allen’s father, the comedian Keith Allen, produced and directed a conspiracy theory “documentary” called “Unlawful Killing” that alleges Prince Charles and the rest of the royal family were behind Princess Diana‘s death. Okay then! In “Unlawful Killing,” Princess Diana is reportedly heard on audio, telling someone on the phone, “If you’re a strong woman in my environment, you’re a problem. I’m a Hell of a problem. … [I have] no time for hobbies. Keeping alive is one of them.” OMG THAT TOTALLY PROVES CHARLES HAD HER KILLED. Just kidding. While I love a good conspiracy theory, the idea that Princess Diana was murdered by the royal family instead of killed by, you know, the drunk driver behind the wheel of her car seems pretty distasteful. Curious, though, that this is a subject near and dear to Keith Allen’s heart. “Unlawful Killing” has been banned in the UK and is set to debut at the Cannes Film Festival later this year. It was probably a good idea to sit Prince William‘s wedding out, Lily. [ONTD, RadarOnline] Keep reading »

The 5 Biggest Conspiracy Theorists In Hollywood

Over the past eight years, the “9/11 truth” movement has gained a lot of followers. They’re the folks who say that 9/11 doesn’t compute and suspect that serious foul play, possibly on the part of our government, went down. I encountered a truther on the subway today who kept saying, “Wake up, America. 9/11 was a set-up.” But, still, I was a bit surprised to hear that Charlie Sheen is a card-carrying truther, too. He recently wrote a piece for PrisonPlanet.com that’s in the form of a conversation with Barack Obama. Here’s what he had to say:

“[There's a] bottomless warren of unanswered questions surrounding that day and its aftermath…9/11 has been the pretext for the systematic dismantling of our Constitution and Bill of Rights…I implore you based on the evidence you now possess, to use your Executive Power. Prove to us all, Sir, that you do, in fact, care. Create a truly comprehensive and open Congressional investigation of 9/11 and its aftermath.” [Popeater]

But Charlie isn’t the only celebrity conspiracy theorist on the block. Here’s a look at four more. I’ll withhold judgment and let you decide whether you think they’re on to something or totally off their rockers. Keep reading »
