Well let me just put another checkmark on the conspiracies that came true list.
Hollywood, music and media industry are full of pedo satanists.

Smith received significant criticism for the performance at the ceremony.
As Variety explained, “Smith started the song in red leather, surround a fleet of dancers that evoked Samara from ‘The Ring,’ before cutting to [Kim] Petras dancing in a cage, flanked by some dominatrices wearing satanic headgear. Smith also donned a satanic top hat, as huge flames heated up the stage.”
In case you missed it:
People like Sam Smith who love to mock Christianity and use Satanic themes always think they’re super edgy artists by doing it. In reality it’s not edgy. It’s boring, vile, rehashed shock tactics that Hollywood seals clap for because they’re evil & stupid. pic.twitter.com/Hmfo31M5NM

Smith and Petras ended up winning the Grammy for best pop duo/group performance.
“I think a lot of people, honestly, have kind of labeled what I stand for and what Sam stands for as religiously not cool, and I personally grew up wondering about religion and wanting to be a part of it but slowly realizing it didn’t want me to be a part of it,” Petras said when asked about the nature of the performance.
Petras added, “So it’s a take on not being able to choose religion. And not being able to live the way that people might want you to live, because as a trans person I’m already not kind of wanted in religion. So we were doing a take on that and I was kind of hellkeeper Kim.”
