The internet is a hive of conspiracy theories, and conspiracy theory spoofs. Here are a selection of the most bizarre explanations for Michael Jackson’s death.

1) Michael Jackson was killed by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to distract attention from Iran

For: The King of Pop’s death was perfectly timed for the wobbling Iranian regime. Just as reports of its post-election clampdown were provoking howls of protest in the West, and pushing the previously hesitant President Obama to say was “appalled and outraged”, Jacko’s death sucked media attention from Persia to Bel Air. Even more tellingly, “Michael Jackson RIP” replaced “#iranelection” at the top of Twitter’s trending topics, effectively killing off the last hopes of a revolution.

Against: No evidence whatsoever.

2) Michael Jackson faked his own death to escape money worries/start new life/hang out with Elvis

For: Michael Jackson’s precarious financial position has been well documented. Around

Persia. Bel Air.

La Toya: Michael was Murdered

“Michael WAS murdered,” declared La Toya, 53. “And we don’t think just one person was involved. Rather, it was a conspiracy of people. I feel it was all about money. Michael was worth well over a billion in music publishing assets and somebody killed him for that. He was worth more dead than alive.”

5.) Michael Jackson is meeting with Elvis for dinner

“It’s not that I don’t think that the government would try to hide dead aliens; it’s that I don’t think the government would succeed, since every time the government tries to do something secretly, as in the Iran-contra arms deal, it winds up displaying all the finesse and stealth of an exploding cigar at a state funeral.”

I believe Michael Jackson is indeed alive. I have been doing some nosing around for a while to look at all the possible angles as to how he may have faked his death.

Well, I’m sure you’re not the only one who thinks so.

What’s your take on the whys and hows?

Bear in mind, we’re a fairly cynical bunch here, but also very meticulous in our analysis. If you want to find a hole in your theories, we’re likely to oblige you in spades.

1: Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. If it does what it says, you should have no problem with this.
2: What proof will you accept that you are wrong? You ask us to change our mind, but we cannot change yours?
3: It is not our responsability to disprove your claims, but rather your responsability to prove them.
4. Personal testamonials are not proof.

What part of ‘meow’ don’t you understand?

Some detail emerging that he wasn’t exactly up for doing these comeback gigs. Although this all clearly illuminati propaganda wink (or should that be proper gander?)

Given how big a star Michael Jackson was I won’t be surprised if revelations keep coming out in dribs and drabs over the coming years. Maybe even some as yet unknown conspiracy however minor.
