Russell Simmons

The Illuminati Doesn't Exist

(I'm Rich, I Would Know)

2/7/2013 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

020613_russell_simmons_launch
Mega-rich, ultra-successful record producer Russell Simmons says there's ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY no such thing as the Illuminati ... which is EXACTLY what someone in the Illuminati would say!!!!

Simmons -- if that's even his real name -- is connected to a whole bunch of people rumored to be in the super-secret society that controls the world ... including Jay-Z, Beyonce, Kanye and Oprah.

So when we asked if he could confirm or deny one of the alleged members ... or even acknowledge the group's existence at all ... it's almost like he protested a little too much, saying "Are you kidding me? I'm a grown f*cking man!"

Translation -- YES!!!!!

Here is the problem - and I'm not being racist. If the Illuminati *did* exist, they sure as hell wouldn't let black people in. So all these morons who think someone is in the Illuminati because they got a triangle tattoo and they're rich are RIDICULOUS.

Before a entertainer is given a recording contract they must first be a member of a secret society. A so called X member of the Illuminati, who was a music executive in the 70’s spoke about this publicly, his name was John Todd. According to Todd, every musician and entertainer in the music industry and Hollywood, has to be a initiated wizard or witch before they are offered a recording contract.

I’m not blaming Bobby for Whitney’s fall, because he took the oath and made a deal with the goat just like her, so I believe they used Bobby to make Whitney’s life more interesting and to begin to tarnish her image. Like I said the music industry is not for those who are pure at heart and Whitney was a pure soul indeed!

think this illuminatti stuff is alot of "Old Tripe." I would definatly know if there was one. Although we've been called "Devil Worshippers" and Aleister Crowley and all that crap. Although John and i read alot of books on the subject. I really dont remember alot of the other books we read. They say, If you can remember the Sixties, you weren't really there. I think of the 60s now as a supermarket of ideas. We were looking for new, valid ways to live. Some people took a lot of drugs, others abstained from everything, including coffee. There were chaste Christian communes, and others where there were no doors on the bedrooms and monogamy was banned. Everything was up in the air. We were just trying to make sense of it and not be conditioned by the 'British Way of Life.

There is clearly no Illuminati, but it is obvious why they wrote this article: For the sake of the handful of crazies on here that is convinced it is truth. I'm going to give you some information, free of charge: Whitney Houston died of a drug overdose because she was a drug addict. Anyone with two eyes can see that. You can't twist everything to fit your crazy theories, and when you do that, you make it look even more CRAZY.

If it were an Illuminati, it they would not include stupid Kanya West. He is one of the most ignorant "celebraties" that I have every seen.
