say "conspiracies" what are you referring to? I don't think the Illuminati are behind every conspiracy either. But I do think there is one very large conspiracy that has to do with money, governments, presidents, even religion, and I think an abstract concept of "Illuminati" ties it all together. Please see my other comment in this thread about my thoughts on the nature of Illuminati.
As to why people show symbolism I believe it's for different reasons. Some do it because they may think it's "cool" as in something they heard of but really don't know or understand. I think Beyonce did it because at this time in history the Illuminati are being highly talked about and to some extent discovered.
