Beyoncé sure knows how to keep fans on their toes. Since news of the twins' birth broke on June 17, members of the Beyhive have been glued to their phones, anxiously awaiting more information on the miracles that are Beyoncé's babies. Well, they were rewarded for their efforts on July 14, when the singer herself shared a photo of the babies on Instagram. And while most marveled at the beauty of the image, a select few fans began frantically searching for Illuminati clues from Beyoncé's twins photo.
Not familiar with the Beyoncé Illuminati theories or the Illuminati in general? On its most basic level, according to the Illuminati's "official" website, the Illuminati is, "an elite organization of world leaders, business authorities, innovators, artists, and other influential members of this planet." More specifically, according to Complex, the Illuminati is a group of people who posses special enlightenment or knowledge of something. So why do people this Beyoncé is part of that elite group? Well, there are a few theories.
First, there's the JAY-Z factor. According to The Fader, Illuminati theorists believe that the rapper's signature move — forming a triangle with his hands — is a "dead giveaway" of Illuminati affiliation. Of course, JAY-Z has gone on record dispelling this theory. And by on the record, I mean he subtly addressed the theory in Rick Ross' "Free Mason" when he rapped, "I said I was amazing, not that I'm a Mason/I'm red hot, I'm on my third six, but a devil I'm not."
Then there's the Blue Ivy of it all. When Beyoncé and JAY-Z welcomed their first child in 2013, some believed the name Blue Ivy had hidden Illuminati meaning — Born Living Under Evil Illuminati's Very Youngest. Granted, they probably just liked the name. But if it is true, she'll definitely have authority to reign over her new baby brother and sister.
So, naturally, people have been picking apart everything related to Beyoncé's twins to further prove the Illuminati theory. That includes analyzing what is most likely just a beautiful and simple (well, simple by Beyoncé's standards) birth announcement. But I'm a people pleaser, so I'll give the people what they want.
According to Mystery of the Iniquity (the adage "consider the source" has never felt so literal), the colors of the Illuminati are red, black, and white. In the photo, Beyoncé is standing in front of a floral arch that features white flowers. Not enough to convince you? Well look at Beyoncé's outfit, which contains the colors purple and blue. What does blue pair with to make purple? That's right — red.
Still not sold? Both the flower arch and robe contain pink, a color that, at least in my mind, is just a lighter version of red. Perhaps that is Beyoncé's very subtle nod to the Illuminati. Or, it could be her way of reiterating that people are, "corny with that Illuminati mess."
Regardless of the secret messages hiding in Beyoncé's photo, fans and haters alike can agree that it is a beautiful photo of a mother and her babies.
