Yet another Britney Spears conspiracy theory has surfaced, and it’s only getting darker.
As you may have read, Britney’s fans believe that she is being held against her will and manipulated on the grounds of her conservatorship – meaning she has no control over her own life and what she puts out on the internet.
Hear a full breakdown of everything that’s happened with Britney Spears:
This new theory, however, throws it all the way back to an episode of The Simpsons that was released in 2000. Britney Spears guest starred in episode 238 of The Simpsons titled ‘The Mansion Family’.
The name of the episode is in reference to The Manson Family, which is the cult led by Charles Manson – who are responsible for the murder of Sharon Tate, and famous for their unconventional lifestyle and habitual use of hallucinogenic drugs, namely LSD.
This is where it gets a bit hectic.
The CIA conducted a series of experiments using drugs and hallucinogens on human subjects. According to History Channel, MK Ultra “learned to control and even re-programme people’s minds”. Conspiracy theorists believe that MK Ultra and their mind control was used to influence Charles Manson and his cult ‘family’ of 50. It has been proven that a strand of LSD used by the CIA was also used by The Manson Family.
The MK Ultra conspiracy theory aligns with the Britney Spears conspiracy theory that she was brainwashed as a young girl to embody an ‘ideal child star’, allegedly using the same drug. The drug is said to cause confusion, paranoia and out-of-body episodes.
Conspiracy theorists believe that Britney’s trip to the Hollywood hair salon in 2007 was an example of one of these out-of-body episodes, and that she didn’t know what she was doing in the moment.
Another Britney Spears conspiracy theory that ties all of this together is lyrics to specific songs, especially ‘Overprotected’, released in 2001.
What am I to do with my life? (You will find it out don’t worry)
How am I supposed to know what’s right? (You just got to do it your way)
Theorists also believe that her current social media behaviour is a direct result of malfunctioning mind control. These are all just conspiracy theories, and we can only hope that Britney is actually a-ok and none of this is real.
