Yesterday, superstars Beyonce and Jay-Z welcomed their first child, a girl they named Blue Ivy Carter (Carter is Jay-Z’s real last name). While I was more preoccupied with wondering whether Blue Ivy sounded more like a rare plant or a porn star, apparently a bunch of Christians on Twitter thought that the name was clearly a reference to Satanism.
This isn’t the first time that Jay-Z has been accused of having ties to the Illuminati. His video for “On to the Next One” (posted above) contained black-and-white imagery, skulls, and allusions to Death. The belief is so pervasive that a search for the video’s name on YouTube autofills to “On to the Next One Illuminati.”
