No, I'm afraid the Illuminati are very much for real and as Jeff said, the organization consists of "virtually everyone who's even a little bit famous". The truth is, you really don't know how deep... or more accurately, how shallow... this thing really goes. The pyramid symbol so deeply embedded in Illuminati culture should actually be upside down.
Allow me to explain.
Yes, the Illuminati is infested with celebrities. However, there's an obvious inherent flaw in stocking your secret organization with high-profile personalities who live in the constant harsh glare of spotlights and flashbulbs. Folks like Beyonce, God bless 'em, can't go more than a few minutes without doing something designed to draw attention. Like, say, oh, I don't know, maybe flash the organization's primary symbol while performing during the scheduled break in the middle of the world's most widely televised event? That is not exactly the trait you're looking for in selecting someone to lead your covert cabal. In other words, the bigger the star, the less influential the Illuminati-ator.

So who is at the top... or bottom... of it all? This guy...

Upon faking his death in 1995, he travelled to the uncharted Illuminati Island somewhere in the south Pacific in Walt Disney's submarine piloted by Elvis Presley, where he lives today, conducting and overseeing operations from a cave beneath a dormant volcano.
We haven't found the island yet (we have reason to believe that the island itself is now motorized and capable of travelling any of the earth's oceans) but it's way up there on our "to-do" list.
