My initials are REM, so I always thought the R.E.M. albums that my parents owned were connected to me somehow.
I used to believe that Murray from 'The Wiggles' was actually a girl. I never heard the name Murray before and probably associated it with Mary and he had longer hair than the rest of them. It was probably a bit of wishful thinking on my part because I got angry when other shows did not include a girl.
I thought that since my grandpa and my dad's names are both David, than David Bowie must be my aunt's son.
I got the names of several singers and bands mixed up. I thought Waylon Jenning was "Wailing Jenny" and Hall and Oates was "Haulin' Oats".
As a kid, when a person was described as being prima donna, I assumed they were saying pre-Madonna. I thought how cool she must be that the arrival of Madonna was used to describe people as either cool or lame.
I used to think the raper eminem was spelled M&M.
i used to belief that everytime anyone plays a song from cassette, radio, anywhere, and the artist sings it live everytime that is why they are so rich, cos they work hard.
I used to believe that all the child actors in movies were just mini adults because I thought that it was absurd that children could have jobs! I believed this until I was about 9.
When I was a kid, I thought the musical Mamma Mia did songs from the A*Teens (the teenage version of Abba)
I used to believe that the members of the band, "Kiss" had their bones replaced with chains. Sounds like a pretty invasive surgery to me now.
I thought Elvis was a genre.
When Justin Bieber's very first song came out I thought his name was Justin Beaver because that's what it sounded like on the fuzzy radio. And I thought he was female because the singer sounded female at first, so I thought it was a girl named Justin. But when I found out he was a boy his voice no longer sounded girly to me.
I used to think that all country music singers were cowboys, and cowboys would kill you if you met them. Therefore, I believed that country music singers were vicious killers.
Every time I saw a music video on TV, I thought that the pop stars in that video had jumped into the TV to sing their song, and then when the song was over they would just get back out of the TV and carry on with their lives. I was really confused about how they managed to perform the song in the exact same way every single time, and I always wondered what would happen if I tried to jump into the TV myself.
I used to think there was a special high school just for celebrities to go to, so they could get an education without being surrounded by non-celebrities that would fawn over them all day. It wasn't until I was about eleven that I learned that most celebrities are either out of school or home schooled.
I thought for a long time the singer Phil Collins was Asian (his voice just sounded Asian some how and I had never seen a picture of him)
I used to believe Paul Mcartney was my father. I used to fall asleep at night just knowing that any day now he was going to show up at our house and claim me! God knows why I thought this, as I already had a father. Also, I lived in Ohio and my mom didn't even like the Beatles.
I used to believe that each time a music video came on, the band was performing everything individually each time (all over again) and it made me wonder how they got it to be the same every time. I thought the same about songs on the radio.
I thought the band Steely Dan was called that because the leader was named Dan. Until one day my parents were talking about the band and said they didn't know what the singer's name was and I said "isn't it Dan" Me very embarrassed parents then explained what a Steely Dan was ..
When I was about eight, my uncle told me that he used to be Elvis. I was so excited, I told my class for show-and-tell.
