J.Lo Insured Her Butt
J.Lo’s butt is worth $27 million, or so the rumor goes.
Though it’s an irresistible story, it’s probably another celebrity myth. In reality, insurance companies are very unlikely to insure body parts.
Marilyn Manson Removed a Rib
One of the most popular celebrity myths is that he removed a rib in order to perform fellatio on himself.
First of all, it’s physically impossible to remove a rib without causing serious damage to yourself. Secondly, even if he could pull a rib, there’s no way he could reach down far enough to… you know.
Mr. Rogers Was a Sniper
There’s a persistent myth that Mr. Rogers, the beloved children’s television host, was a sniper in the military.
Of course, there’s no truth to this rumor. Mr. Rogers was never in the military nor even owned a gun.
So, where did this myth come from? It likely started as a simple misunderstanding but became of the most famous celebrity myths.
In an interview, Mr. Rogers once said that his father was a marksman and that he himself had been trained in accuracy with a rifle.
This statement was misinterpreted, and the rumor began to spread.
Stevie Wonder Can See
The rumor began circulating in the early 1970s when Wonder was photographed wearing sunglasses indoors.
Since then, the myth has taken on a life of its own, with some people believing that Wonder uses his blindness as a gimmick to sell records.
Of course, the truth is that Wonder is indeed blind, and the sunglasses are just a practical necessity for anyone who can’t see. Some celebrity myths are disrespectful!
Tupac Faked his Death
One of the most persistent celebrity myths is that rapper Tupac Shakur faked his own death. Even though he was shot in 1996 and his body was cremated, some still believe that he is alive and well.
The most common theory is that Tupac staged his death to avoid being caught up in the East Coast/West Coast rap wars.
Others believe he lives in a secret location, waiting to make his big comeback. Still, others think that aliens abducted him!
A Body Double replaced Avril Lavigne
There’s a popular conspiracy theory that Canadian singer Avril Lavigne died in 2003 and was replaced by a body double.
The theory goes that the real Avril was too depressed to continue her career, so her record label found a lookalike to take her place.
However, there’s no evidence to support this theory, and it seems more likely that Lavigne is just a normal person who has changed over the years, like everyone else.
Walt Disney Was Cryogenically Frozen
It’s one of the most famous urban legends of all time: Walt Disney was cryogenically frozen after his death in 1966, hoping he could be revived in the future.
The story has been repeated so often that it’s hard to believe it’s not true. These celebrity myths keep being repeated until they become history.
After all, Disney was a pioneer in animation and technology, and he seemed like the kind of guy who would be open to the idea of being frozen.
However, there’s no evidence supporting the claim that Disney was cryogenically frozen, and it’s likely just a rumor.
Stanley Kubrick Faked the Moon Landing
The story goes that the government recruited Kubrick to stage the moon landing and that he used his Hollywood know-how to create a convincing fake.
There’s just one problem with this theory: it’s complete nonsense. For starters, there’s no evidence that Kubrick was even involved in the Apollo program.
And even if he had been, it’s hard to believe that he would have been able to keep such a huge Secret under wraps for so many years.
Elvis Presley is alive.
Despite what some people may believe, Elvis Presley is not alive. This rumor has circulated for years, and there are several reasons why people may want to think that the King is still with us.
Perhaps it’s because we can’t imagine a world without Elvis, or we’re just desperate for news about our favorite celebrities.
Whatever the case may be, the fact remains that Elvis is no longer with us.
Paul McCartney died and was replaced.
One of the most persistent celebrity myths is that Paul McCartney died in a car accident in 1966 and was replaced by a lookalike.
The rumor started circulating after the release of the Beatles album “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” which contained several clues that supposedly pointed to McCartney’s death.
While there are many theories about why McCartney supposedly died, the most likely explanation is that it was simply a case of people seeing what they wanted to see.
In reality, Paul McCartney is very much alive and well. He even addressed the rumor directly in an interview with Playboy in 1984, saying, “I am definitely alive.”
