May Avril Lavigne rest in peace.

7 Conspiracy Theories To Keep Your Mind Busy

Where is the fun in blindly believing everything we are told? Conspiracy theories, though some a little more out there than others, give us all hope that maybe there is more to be discovered than what is on the surface, and provide us all with an incentive to keep digging for more information.

To all of those that believe there is a curtain that can one day be pushed back to reveal more than we are told, this one is for you.

1. The CIA Killed President John F. Kennedy

This one is my personal favorite and genuinely has the most elements of truth to it. Though the history books say Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone-shooter in the assassination of President Kennedy in 1963, conspiracy theorists argue otherwise.

There are many sub-theories that go along with this theory, such as the Magic Bullet Theory, which disproved that Oswald could have been a lone shooter. Many argue that Oswald was indeed a patsy, and there was a bigger party at play in the assassination of the president.

2. The Simulation Reality Theory

This theory is based off the idea that we are being controlled by another being, and that our entire life and existence is actually just something of a video game by a being of a much higher intelligence.

It suggests that rather than us being the ruler of our own world and outcomes, there is something else that gets to make every decision for us.

3. The Mandela Effect

The Mandela Effect is the theory that we are all living in two separate realities. This theory is based on a massive part of the population’s misremembrance of certain events.

It is rightfully called the Mandela Effect because there are many that swear that Nelson Mandela died in the 1980s when in reality he died in 2013. They claim they can recall the announcement of his death in the 1980s and remember hearing that he had died in prison.

Many psychologists chalk this up to false memories, a Freudian concept that suggests that people can be convinced of almost anything, even something such as being assaulted as a child. Conspiracy theorists argue otherwise.

4. Avril Lavigne has been dead for years

The theory goes that the Avril Lavigne we all knew and loved died a few years back and a look-alike, whose real name is Melissa, has been standing in as Lavigne pretending to be her for all these years.

Theorists claim that not only has Lavigne’s song style, wardrobe style, and choice of men changed (the “real” Lavigne claimed to have hated Nickelback, but Melissa went and married the lead singer) but her physical features as well.

They claim that her eye shape is different, her skin tone, the shape of her lips, and even note the disappearance of distinguishing marks such as moles, scars, and birthmarks. People claim she got plastic surgery done, but that won’t stop the theorists.

But hey, it’s Avril Lavigne’s world and we’re all just living in it.

5. The FBI watches us through our phones

This theory has become more of a meme over the past few months, but it is still something worth thinking about. The theory suggests that FBI agents use our phones, laptops, and other pieces of technology to spy on us and gather information on us.

Some of the most noted pieces of technology used to spy on the public are Siri and Alexa.

6. We never went to the moon

There are theories that Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin never actually went to the moon. Theorists base this claim off of some of the pictures that were taken on that historic day, and how there are certain elements to the pictures that could not be possible if they were actually on the moon.

An example of this is that the American flag has a wrinkle in it, as if there was wind blowing it. In space, there is no wind, so it would make it physically impossible to have those types of wrinkles.

7. U.F.Os

The U.F.O. theory claims that many government agents are well aware that U.F.O. craft from other worlds have visited our planet.

Area 51, a military base in Nevada is the home of this conspiracy, and many have believed for many years that the military base was the location in which many government experiments were done on alien beings that were captured by government officials.

Theorists also claim that government has possession of many crafts used by these extraterrestrial beings and keep them in various secret locations.

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

The Caribbean is a place where people go for vacation, but if you set out from a cruise ship you miss out on all the beautiful culture. Their exotic beaches are nothing without their zinging food and hospitality. Locals in the Caribbean are warmhearted with a zest to live life to the fullest.

This is exactly where most of their words and phrases come from, having a good time. I definitely enjoyed myself living in the Caribbean, but it's not always about lounging. They get work done too and I've learned proper phrases for accomplishments.

According to Urban Dictionary, a "simp" is defined as "a man that puts himself in a subservient/submissive position under women in the hopes of winning them over, without the female bringing anything to the table." There are many other definitions for a "simp," but basically it's shaming men who are kind to women without getting anything in return.

Let's just stop attacking nice men. Work out your own issues, don't project your shortcomings onto another man. What happened to the brotherhood? Y'all can lie for each other, but can't raise each other up? You guys can encourage murder, gang rape, and violence against women — or at least stay silent about it — but can't let your brother know it ain't cool when they bring you down for being nice to women with no expectation?

Self-Love Is The Best Love, That's Just How It Is

Do you ever feel like you can't please everyone? Self-love will do the trick.

I've been feeling a little down lately, with the understanding that friends don't last forever and that I can't always please my parents. Life has been rough for everyone lately and it's not easy to stay happy and optimistic during these times. But I promise you, you are on this earth for a reason. You are here because God formed you, to love, and to be loved.

When things are tough, realize that you have yourself always. No one can take that away from you. You will always be you. No matter who you are, what you believe, or where you've been in life, at the end of the day, you are you. You can love you, therefore giving you one reason to stay here on this Earth.

Nobody Wants To Grieve, But That's The Price We Pay For Love

Grief never comes when you think it should. It comes when a certain song comes on or the sun shines through the window just right.

Death always seems to come when life is good and everything starts to be going alright. And then out of nowhere, you're reminded of how cruel life can be. The stages of grief don't always go in order, they come in waves or all at once. Grief never comes when you think it should. It comes when a certain song comes on or the sun shines through the window just right. I take comfort in the fact that everyone experiences grief, even when you feel all alone knowing that everyone goes through a process that helps a little bit.

I'm A Black, Gay Fashion Lover Who Grew Up In The South, And I Want To Be A Beacon For The Future

Giving your life story is never easy, but it can be, if you want to make a difference.

Growing up in Georgia was not always the accepting place we know it to be today thanks to Atlanta. Let me preface this by saying, I had a pretty good life growing up. I was raised by a single mother who sacrificed so that I could live the life that I lived. I was spoiled rotten. One way that my mother spoiled me was through clothing.

These 10 Black Women Were Our 2000s Fashion Icons — We're Still Replicating Their Looks Now

We recollect on some of the Black stars who served as fashion icons during the 2000s.

When we talk about the 2000s, it's always filled with nostalgia. For most of us, we grew up during that era with the razr flip phones or sidekicks, and decade staple designers like Juicy Couture, Von Dutch, and Ed Hardy. It was time of daring fashion choices and red carpets that we now look back on and say, "what were they wearing?"

A sector of people that exemplifies the fashion icons who ruled the 2000s, were Black women. So, I feel as though it's my duty to shine light on these fashion icons. Here they are:
