A number of conspiracy theorists are convinced that pop icon Lady Gaga is in fact a killer who murders her musical rivals.
The strange, and completely unfounded, claims accuse the Born This Way singer of killing the musician Lina Morgana and then stealing her style and songs.
Internet trolls and deluded conspiracy theorists allege that Gaga pushed Lina off a building in 2008 before launching her own career.
One forum user wrote:
Two weeks [after Lina’s death], Lady Gaga starts her meteoric rise. Nearly all the styles Lady Gaga uses today stem from Lina’s own style.
Some of Lina’s dedicated fans have even gone so far as to call Gaga out on social media asking: “Why did you push lina morgana (sic) off that building?”
Others have simply stated that Lady Gaga ‘stole’ Lina’s identity and have written up a contrived list of coincidences that they’ve labelled proof of the pop singer’s alleged crimes.

Forgive my arbitrary scepticism but unless Lina invented sitting on steps we’re somehow not convinced.
It’s also been claimed that Lady Gaga has left subliminal messages in her music videos – because we all know the best way to get away with murder is to leave a series of clues for Columbo-like detectives to solve.
"Lady No More Gaga"

Apparently in one of Gaga’s videos a newspaper reads: ‘Lady No More Gaga’ which some theorists believe is too similar to ‘Morgana’ to be a coincidence.
Gaga’s loyal legion of fans have pointed out that the star was actually filming the Poker Face video on the day she died and was seen at a concert that evening, but why should we let facts get in the way of a bonkers theory.
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
