Hi, my name is Isaac Weishaupt and you’re on IlluminatiWatcher.com- your home for decoding conspiracy theories in entertainment!
Today we’re going to take a look at the other side of the spectrum- the “NON” conspiracy minded viewpoint.
Many of you know I pride myself on being a bit more neutral than most theorists and there are many reasons for that. I’ll explain in the wrap-up why I approach it this way, but first let’s examine a case in point.
The example will be the latest claim that Lady Gaga sold her soul and is now suffering from fibromyalgia…
YourNewsWire published an article on September 20th, 2017 called: “Lady Gaga: Fibromyalgia Is ‘Punishment’ For Joining The Illuminati.”
Now, most of you may recognize that website because it made the list of official “Fake News” websites that FactCheck.org published. I recognized it because I’ve seen enough garbage articles from that website that I rarely even click on them.
Getting to the meat of the allegation; YourNewsWire claimed the following:
Lady Gaga believes her illness is a physical manifestation of the dark forces that seized control of her body and soul after she joined the Illuminati early in her career, according to production staff from Gaga’s new documentary.
The Netflix produced Gaga: Five Foot Two is a warts-and-all documentary portrait of the troubled star – or at least it appears to, with fly-on-the-wall footage of rehearsals, studio sessions, public appearances, private late-night conversations, medical appointments, and multiple tearful breakdowns.
Describing scenes from the documentary that were left on the cutting room floor, production staff reveal that Lady Gaga sought advice from a Catholic priest regarding the possibility of undergoing an exorcism to rid herself of the “dark spirituality” that she says she “invited in” to her body early in her career.
As a struggling performer who played mostly in dive bars, in burlesque clubs, and at late night revues, Gaga had little commercial success or public recognition before meeting the man she describes as “my illuminated prince.”
In exchange for her soul, Gaga was able to create the music for which she became famous.
After “concluding a deal” with the prince outside the Mercury Lounge in New York City, Gaga found “success was a cinch.” In exchange for her soul, Gaga was able to create the music for which she became famous. Suddenly high-level collaborators, producers and promoters were lining up to work with the unknown burlesque performer.
Within one year she was a multi-platinum pop star, her work reaching an audience of billions around the world.
“His promises came true very quickly.”
“At the start I thought we made a good team. But it wasn’t long before I began to suffer.”
Gaga has battled with competing forces battling for supremacy inside herself for years, and she’s frequently at war with herself in the documentary — one side driven to perform, the other given to complaining about the rotten deal she has been handed by the “dark forces.”
Gaga believes the physical illness, fibromyalgia, a chronic pain condition she says she has experienced for a while, is the physical manifestation of her fight to get out of the Illuminati record industry and break her contract with the “dark prince.“
I’ve explored realms similar to this one with the concept of the Faustian bargain in Sacrifice: Magic Behind the Mic so I was immediately intrigued to learn more…
The Fact Check
After reading the article I watched the entire documentary (which wasn’t much more than an advertisement for her new album). There was not one bit of truth in the allegation to be found in the “official” footage.
BUT, the article claims the incriminating footage was captured and left on the cutting room floor.
So, I emailed AND tweeted the “journalist” (named Baxter Dmitry- “reachable” at @baxter_dmitry and email@example.com). I asked who the sources were who made this claim and how reliable they were- but NO RESPONSES WERE RECEIVED.
Even the website GossipCop wrote an analysis on this allegation and was actually able to reach out to Gaga’s people to directly ask them (as if they would admit to it; but still).
Regardless, they (and Netflix) confirmed it untrue that there was any footage left behind like this.
But Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Gaga, who dismissed the site’s report as complete “nonsense.” Netflix insiders similarly assure us there’s no cut footage of the singer discussing her ties to the Illuminati, an 18th-century secret society that likely no longer exists, unless you listen to conspiracy theorists.
Like I stated earlier, I explored this topic in Sacrifice: Magic Behind the Mic so I was definitely interested in learning more. In the book I laid out the speculative nature of this Faustian bargain, while also following it up with many examples of artists like Whitney Houston, 2Pac, Michael Jackson, and others that seem to have been taken out in an occult manner- proving the Faustian bargain theories.
Plenty of artists have made claims similar to the ones made in that Lady Gaga article, so I wanted to verify it before publishing it on IlluminatiWatcher.com. It appears that it is untrue.
HOWEVER, Lady Gaga has long been on my radar for her occult type symbolism, so I wouldn’t be shocked if there was SOME truth to be had here…
I said earlier that I tend to be more neutral than most theorists and here is a great example of why. Even though we’re exploring this dark realm of conspiracy for the truth, we have to understand that these celebrities are people too. Granted they probably aren’t concerned with the allegations of conspiracy theorists; but the fact remains that everyone should be treated with some decency.
While it’s not too much of a stretch to claim that Gaga sold her soul for fame; it is a little mean spirited to say she is suffering from fibromyalgia because it was her just due for signing the pact.
Another reason we need to stay open minded is that we don’t want to be labeled in the same camp as these Fake Newsers. What irks me about this is that it forces the masses (“normies”) to throw the baby out with the bath water. I know for fact that we’ve got some theories worth investigating and understanding but they’ll never be taken seriously so long as fake news websites like these publish bogus claims like this.
They’re going to keep doing it because it gets them ad revenue. They are writing click-bait articles and no matter how much I dislike them it is in their right to do so (besides the libel at hand here). I would NEVER advocate for the censorship of anyone’s theories; so in a case like this it is up to US to not share any articles that are unsubstantiated. To me, I read this article as sensationalism satire (no different than The Onion), but it blurs the lines such that many can’t discern the difference.
Ultimately, websites like YourNewsWire with their wild allegations are harming way more than they are helping. If we ever want the masses to understand the basis for symbolism and occult concepts then we need to stop supporting sites like that one.
