Conspiracy theories have always been an attention grabber in the media. Nowadays, celebrity conspiracy theories are called clickbait. Clickbait is “(on the Internet) content whose main purpose is to attract attention and encourage visitors to click on a link to a particular web page” (Dictionary.com). Fans and writers often use click bait to attract more people to read or see their articles/pages. Online magazines often get more money when their clickbait becomes successful and visited often, thus increasing the need for clickbait.  Writers and fans often write conspiracy theories about celebrities to seem as if they really know what’s going on in the celebrity world. But have theories been taken too far?

The most recent theory is Kylie Jenner’s pregnancy. Now, there has been no confirmation from the twenty year old reality star; however, many fans and writers seek to prove the pregnancy to the world. Fans post pictures of Jenner pointing out her recent use of baggy shirts and waist trainers to “cover up” her pregnancy. Some also say that she is also shyer with her photos and showing more skin (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-4911508/Is-Kylie-Jenner-having-baby.html). Now Jenner and her boyfriend/alleged father of the baby, Jacques Webster (Travis Scott) have not confirmed whether or not she is pregnant. However, even if she was pregnant, her fans and writers are looking way too much into it.

Other theories are that Avril Lavigne died in 2003 and was replaced by some other actress, named Melissa (last name unknown) (http://blackbag.gawker.com/did-avril-lavigne-die-in-2003-an-internet-conspiracy-1734185142) or that Lorde is actually 40 years old, but doesn’t age (https://theconcourse.deadspin.com/lorde-is-at-least-40-years-old-according-to-my-researc-1792911424). It seems a little far fetched to assume that people die and are replaced. Fans and writers go as far as making up their own evidence to prove their point. They pick apart photos and point out every little detail, every difference, anything and everything that may help their theories.

Some of these theories started out as a joke, like Nicholas Cage being an immortal vampire (http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/entertainment/2011/09/is-nicolas-cage-a-vampire-from-the-civil-war-era/). Then the jokes become too serious as people really try to show that he is a vampire. Coming up with pictures and years of his living. It gets too excessive, I honestly don’t understand how anyone could possibly believe these theories. The evidence isn’t real evidence, it’s just made up information.

Unless there is any real evidence or confirmation made from any these celebrities, then yes, I will believe it. Otherwise they are just far-fetched theories made up by people who don’t even know the truth.
