Welp, Fans Already Figured Out Who the Popcorn Is on ‘The Masked Singer’

So, um, I’m sorry to be the one to say it but…you’re probably never going to look at popcorn the same way again thanks to the arrival of this absolutely demonic creature from The Masked Singer season 4. Yep, that’s right, we now have to contend with a full-on human-sized kernel of corn dancing and singing on stage. Just what you need in 2020!! How are any of us still intrigued by this show?? The medical community will be studying it for years, I’m sure.

But the worst part is is that some poor D-list celebrity is currently trapped inside this thing, so the sooner we can figure out the salty guy’s real identity, the better.

This one is a little longer and packs *way* more info, incluuuding:

And since they haven’t been eliminated yet, we got a third clue package!

They didn’t give us too much to work with besides being in a hospital setting—judge Nicole Scherzinger got “major soap opera vibes” from it—plus a hair crimper and a Rubik’s Cube. By my estimation, it could be anyone at this point.

The Theories

Cyndi Lauper


My money is on this ’80s pop star. Not only does it SOUND like her, but a lot of the clues solidly point to her, too. There has been lots of color involved during the Popcorn’s time on stage, which could have something to do with Lauper’s hit song “True Colors.” And the random meat loaf would make sense because she has performed with *the* Meat Loaf a handful of times. The people have a feeling it’s her:
