Katy Perry: 'I Want to Join the Illuminati'

Do we have any conspiracy theorists in the place?

Katy Perry has said she would like to join the Illuminati, admitting that she finds the idea of the mysterious cult exciting.

Rumours that Perry is a member of the supposedly all-powerful cult began following her performance of "Dark Horse" at the Grammys in January. News site Infowars claimed (via NME): "Illuminati priestess conducts witchcraft ceremony in front of the entire world."

Responding to the rumours, Perry told Rolling Stone: "If the Illuminati exist, I would like to be invited. I see all that shit and I'm like: 'Come on, let me in! I want to be in the club.'"

Perry admitted she had "no idea" what the Illuminati actually stand for or who they are, adding: "It sounds crazy. Weird people on the Internet that have nothing to do find, like, strange triangles in your hand motions. I guess you've made it when they think you're in the Illuminati. But I believe in aliens, so if people want to believe in Illuminati, great."

The Illuminati is supposedly a powerful group of individuals who want to establish "a new world order," with members from political, entertainment and religious circles conspiring to control the world. Other celebrities who have been rumoured online as members include Jay-Z, Beyonce, Kanye West and Madonna.

Perry performed at the White House this week (July 31), where she was hailed by President Barack Obama as: "One of my favourite people ... I love Katy Perry, she is a wonderful person." Stevie Wonder and former tennis player Andy Roddick were among the guests.

    If I ever get famous I'm going to put a lot of illuminati symbols In my music videos. It'll be really fun scaring stupid people.
    I see I'm not the only one who has thought of ths. Eyes and triangles would be everywhere.
    Not sure what to think of this
    I mean, I agree with her. If the Illuminati were real, which they are not, I'd join that (assuming I could).

    hi katy, i'm a recruiter for the illuminati. the application is on my face, so have a seat.
    Really Obama? Katy Perry is one of your "favorite people"?? Out of all people, she's the one that stands out the most?! I have lost all hope
    Given that none of us know her personally she might actually be a very nice person hence why he says she is one of his favorite people.
    Nou silly, accourding tou the article, he said "favourite"! Cuz everyoune knouws that the American President spells like a Brit!
    I so happen to be the leader of the illuminati, Katy. So lucky for me, I get to taste you in the near future.
    I can't wait to see all the conspiratards using this news as "evidence" the Illuminati exists, even though Katy Perry is probably being sarcastic.
    she finds the idea of the mysterious cult exciting
    Then why would she want to join the illuminati? As secret societies go, they're a bit crap at the whole "secret" part given just how many people have heard of them.

    Oh my god, so much shit about the illuminati in these comments. Shut the **** up everyone!
    The Illuminati is real, I've seen it with my psychic vision. But how do these other people know? Perhaps Infowars are themselves members of the illuminati? I know the answer but I won't tell you because it's an inside job.
    What a retard. Because illuminati wanted a talentless c*cksucker...
    Oh yeah, people don't conspire anymore. All people are good and hones, just look at our current state of affairs.... Everything is awesome!
