These celebrity couple conspiracy theories don’t need to be true to be great

All conspiracy theories are trash — unless you’re talking about celebrity queer relationship conspiracy theories, which are 100% good and accurate.

Or so we hope. There are so many conspiracy theories in this genre that, if proven true, would bring infinite joy to queer people worldwide. The LGBTQ community has few celebrity queer relationships they can count on for gossip — a Kristen Stewart and Stella Maxwell here, a RuPaul and Georges LeBar there. By and large, however, these relationships are stable. They are healthy. They are far below the requisite drama standard for gossip. 

We need more. 

Below are a few of the most legendary conspiracy theories about queer relationships, composed entirely by the teenage professors of Tumblr and Twitter. Theorists in this arena are known as “shippers.” It’s worth mentioning that none of these theories has yet to be proven even remotely true, and some of these actors have explicitly stated that they’re heterosexual.

Yeah, yeah, whatever. If there’s one thing we’re entitled to in this great nation of ours, it’s our baseless, purely projective, borderline offensive relationship fantasies.

Here are the very best. 

1. Demi Lovato and Lauren Abedini

This is one conspiracy theory that actually has some chance of being true. Lovato broke up with her longtime boo, Wilmer Valderrama, in June 2016. Around that time, Lovato revealed that she was open to dating both men and women (!!!) because “that’s how she’s always felt.” Fast forward to a year later, when the gossip blogs captured Lovato hand-in-hand with DJ Lauren Abedini at the gayest place on earth, Disneyland. Just last week, Lovato insiders spotted this key detail:

Is there enough evidence to pronounce this conspiracy theory as fact? No, there is not. But don’t you dare let that affect your detective work on Instagram, where queer conspiracy theorists are sorely underrepresented.

2. Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss

In the conspiracy theory community, those of us  who believe that Taylor Swift is secretly dating fashion model Karlie Kloss identify as Kaylor Shippers.

Most critics assume that Swift’s latest album, Reputation, is about her rumored ding dong of a boyfriend, Joe Alwyn. But those of us in the know — experts in the field, really — believe that her song “Gorgeous” is about a woman (Swift) dating a man (Alwyn) while secretly being in love with a woman (Kloss). From Jezebel’s Bobby Finger:

The rumor of their affair first gained speed after a series of grainy photos, allegedly showing Kloss and Swift making out at a 1975 concert, emerged. Swift quickly shut down “Kissgate” — and, in her defense, it’s impossible to precisely identify what’s happening in the photo. Still, that didn’t stop Klossers’ from keepin’ on believin’, especially when the two aren’t afraid to express their (supposedly entirely platonic) affection on Instagram.

John Travolta has got the moves to ‘Grease’ 40 years on

Published

on

That belt loop hip shake from 1978’s Grease has surely been replicated countless times in schools, dances, and in front of mirrors.

Wednesday marked 40 years since the film premiered in New York City, and John Travolta just so happened to be on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, although to promote his upcoming film Gotti.

The shake, which Travolta calls the “four corners,” was introduced when Grease’s choreographer needed a step at the end of “You’re The One That I Want.”

Turns out Travolta still has some of those moves, by the way.

“Alicia Silverstone and Donald Trump exchanged numbers about 10 years ago. But, before you jump to conclusions, you need to hear the full account of what happened.

On The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, the Clueless star said that she and Trump had a “date to talk about solar panels” and that his name and number are still in her phone to this very day.

So, what exactly happened? “I was on one of the other talk shows in the daytime talking about solar panels and silk milk… and he [Trump] said he was really interested and we exchanged numbers so that we could continue this conversation about solar panels,” she said. “So I met with him.”

Silverstone said….”

Serena Williams is already a superhero to each and every one of us. But, as it turns out, she also has a Black Panther-inspired catsuit which makes her feel like a “warrior princess”.

After Williams beat Kristya Pliskova at the French open at Stade Roland Garros, Paris on Tuesday, she spoke about the meaning behind her black bodysuit.

“It feels like this suit represents all the women that have been through a lot mentally, physically, with their body to come back and have confidence and to believe in themselves,” she said following her victory on Tuesday, per the Guardian.

Williams just made her return to the sport nine months after the birth of her daughter. She suffered complications at the time of the birth due to a pulmonary embolism.

In addition to being a symbol of confidence and empowerment, the suit also reminds Williams of Black Panther.

“I call it, like, my Wakanda-inspired catsuit,” Williams said. “We designed it way before the movie, but still, it kind of reminds me of that.”

Not only that, Williams says when she dons her black bodysuit, she feels “like a warrior princess.”

“I always wanted to be a superhero and it’s kind of my way of being a superhero,” she said.

Wakanda forever.
