Lady Gaga never said she "regrets joining" the Illuminati, despite a ridiculous new report alleging the singer "sold her soul" to the secret society in exchange for a music career. The absurd story comes from a website known for peddling wild conspiracy theories, but there's not truth to any of it.
According to Neon Nettle, the singer opened up about her ties to the Illuminati while filming her upcoming Netflix documentary "Gaga: Five Foot Two," but the nefarious organization demanded the scenes be cut from the film. The blog claims to have spoken to members of the film's production staff, who supposedly revealed how Gaga recalled "donating her soul" to a "strangely ageless man in a suit" following a performance at a New York dive bar in 2006.
The site further quotes Gaga as having described the man as an "illuminated prince" who launched her into superstardom, but also introduced a "dark spirituality" into her body. Gaga recently postponed the European leg of her Joanne World Tour due to "severe physical pain," which the webloid insists was brought on by the "dark forces" of the Illuminati. According to a supposed documentary crew member, there's an interview scene that was left on the cutting room floor in which Gaga says, "This is the reason why so many people who dabble in the dark arts are so unhappy. They flicker bright like a morning star and then wind up committing suicide or destroying themselves with substance abuse."
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. Oddly enough, MediaTakeOut claimed last year that Gaga's music video for "Dancin' In Circles" contained hidden messages exposing her ties to the organization. That report was completely ludicrous, and the same goes for this latest one on the subject.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
