I used to believe that both Madonna and Michael Jackson were dead when I was a kid in the early 90s. I thought that every concert and video I saw of them on TV were old and that you could only get that influential after death (for me they were in the same category as Elvis).
At one point, I believed that Lauren Mayberry was future me, but I'd got a hold of a time machine, and came back to the time when I was the age I believed this.
I think that I thought that Fergie from The Black Eyed Peas was Gloria from Madagascar.
When I was little, when the band Years And Years emerged, I thought that the radio said that they were playing a song from 'years and years [ago]'. Being a kid who only liked new songs, I would switch over whenever they'd play. When I heard 'King' on the radio regularly though, I was surprised because I thought it was an old song.
Ever since the first time I heard the song “Fast car” By Tracy Chapman, I thought that it was sung by a teenage boy. years later I was shocked to find out Tracy Chapman was actually a woman
I believed that Rupert Hrint and Ed Sheeran were the same person.
I thought that take me to church was sung by a black guy in a fedora . . . that's also what I thought Bruno Mars was
I thought Rock and Roll were 2 musicians, with one who rocked and one who rolled.
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.
