If There’s an Illuminati, Katy Perry Would Like to Join It

Quick refresher: The supposed Illuminati are a mysterious shadow network, supposedly made up of some of the word's most powerful. Beyoncé, Jay Z, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Madonna, and Kesha are all suspected members. They show their allegiance with a slew of hand signals and iconography — all impressively detailed by the crew at sites like Vigilant Citzen. Egyptian mythology fan Katy Perry is always on the lookout for aliens, but she's not buying this Illuminati crap, she tells Rolling Stone:

"Listen," she says, "if the Illuminati exist, I would like to be invited! I see all that shit, and I'm like, 'Come on, let me in! I want to be in the club!' I have no idea what it is. It sounds crazy. Weird people on the Internet that have nothing to do find, like, strange triangles in your hand motions," she continues. "I guess you've kind of made it when they think you're in the Illuminati. But listen, I believe in aliens, so if people want to believe in Illuminati, great.

Rule No. 1 of the Illuminati (and, strangely, Fight Club) is that you do not talk about the Illuminati, which leads us to believe that Katy actually isn't lying here. But she'd like to join! Can a representative please give her a sign?
