Monday's Tidal press conference brought together several of music's biggest stars -- including Madonna, Jay Z, Beyonce, Rihanna, and Kanye West -- so it really wasn't a surprise that as soon as it began, people on social media started joking about it being an Illuminati meeting on stage. Hahaha -- except Madonna doesn't even find those remarks funny; she'll just take it as a compliment, thanks.

"If you refer to Tidal as Illuminati, you are paying us the highest of compliments," the singer wrote on her Instagram. "As I've stated before it is another name for "The Enlightened Ones" a group of scientists, philosophers and artists that emerged after the dark ages. They changed and shaped the world for the better! Do the research and find out for yourself! #knowledge is power #rebelheart"
