Beyoncé’s Coachella performance was a hotbed of conspiracy theories

Is Bey a spy? A member of the Illuminati? We’ll never know.

Beyoncé is no stranger to conspiracy theories, with her supposed membership in the world-dominating Illuminati common knowledge among the woke.

Both Beyoncé and husband Jay-Z are thought by some to be charter members of the modern incarnation of the ancient society, with the duo flashing Illuminati images in their work, references to Egyptian gods during performances, and even covert signs in their pregnancy photos. It’s likely that the performers are trolling the conspiracy theorists with their references. Beyoncé even said as much on a track on her 2016 album Lemonade.

But according to conspiracy theorists, it’s not just the Illuminati that has its hooks in Beyoncé. People who really think they have a handle on this stuff have called her a Satanist, a mind control avatar, and a deep-cover CIA agent. She’s also been accused of faking her pregnancies and lying about her age.

So keeping all that in mind, it’s not surprising that the conspiracy theories started flying immediately after her headlining gig at Coachella last weekend (which was repeated this weekend). During a set full of music, dance, and images, Beyoncé ran through centuries of Black cultural touchstones in just two hours—and spawned a range of theories about what she was really trying to say.

One staple image of Beyoncé’s Illuminati symbol repertoire is the “all seeing eye” made by making a circle with your thumb and index finger, and… putting it over your eye. She flashed one at Coachella, and Illuminati watchers had a field day with it.

Here’s a tweet linking Bey to Satanic imagery and a British defense contractor, because it’s all connected:

Speaking of Satan, Beyoncé eats children in the service of the Dark Lord, don’t you know?

This YouTuber is not having any of Beyoncé’s royalty imagery, because America doesn’t have royalty.

Plenty of people saw Satanic imagery everywhere:

Others addressed “Beyonce’s Jew merchandisers.”

There were even a smattering of hashtags from hot conspiracy theory #QAnon.

You could also slow Beyoncé’s performance down and find out she sounds like a demon.

Which is the way everyone sounds when you do that.

Beyoncé’s second Coachella performance took place this weekend, so expect the narrative to continue again this week.
