Just after she officially closed her presidential inauguration drama confirming that she did in fact lip-sync to a pre-recorded version of herself singing the National Anthem, another controversy is following Beyoncé after her halftime performance at the Super Bowl.
Now, some are accusing the pop star of flashing an Illuminati symbol during Sunday's show, while others say there's a perfectly reasonable explanation for it.
First, here's the symbol she made with her hands (below).

And here you can see it in action (Note: She makes the hand symbol at 7:29):
Some are saying this dance move is a symbol of the Illuminati. Others say it is a symbol used for her husband Jay-Z Carter's record label, Roc-A-Fella Records.
Here's what the Illuminati on Twitter (we can't vouch for who maintains the account) has to say about it:
Either way, the Internet has been buzzing over the potential Illuminati connection since Beyoncé formed the triangle with her hands Sunday night. The Huffington Post pointed out that a Google Image search for "roc sign" will display many stars making this shape with their. Jay-Z was reportedly sued in 2005 over the use of the hand gesture by pro-wrestler Diamond Dallas Page, who claimed it as his own.

Regardless of what the symbol meant, it's worth noting that this is not the first time Beyoncé has been linked to the enlightened secret society that has recently been fictionalized in popular culture, like in "The DaVinci Code."
Buzzfeed reported William Fawell, founder of SuperPAC Elect A New Congress, saying he boycotted even watching the halftime show because, as Buzzfeed put it, Beyoncé represents "the rise of the military state and new world order Illuminati, because she has in the past performed with dancers dressed like policemen."
Because Fawell didn't watch the show, Buzzfeed informed him of the hand symbol that was made, to which he said:
"I'm not surprised that they came with the triangle thing, and I don't think it was in reference to high energy particle physics," he said. "I'm sure it was about the new world order."
He said the reason for boycotting the show was to make a statement against Madonna, Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and other performers who he said are part of the "new world order."
"I never attacked Beyoncé," Fawell said. "I think she's probably a very nice lady who is 24 or 25 and she's got a husband who is her mentor-manager who is beyond her life and anything he tells her to do she thinks is the right thing to do."
