when i first saw linkin park's video for "One Step Closer" I thought the guys were 12.
they had baby faces and how did I know they were all in their 20s. just look at chester and mike when you watch it
that rivers cuomo (from weezer) and buddy holly were the same person because of the glasses. when they first came out i wondered how a dead guy could be the lead singer of a band
that stevie nicks was a guy
when i was aroud 5-6 i thought the beatles lived inside our record player. also that little people lived inside records
My dad used to tell me that he used the be Paul from the Beatles.
Years later I found out about the 'Paul is dead conspiracy'.
I'm now looking to sue for lost family royalties.
I used to think that Stevie Wonder was Ray Charles son. Must have been the glasses....
I always got the pop groups OMC and OMD mixed up.
I used to think Buddy Rich was called Buddy Rich because he was my dad's friend, same with Buddy Holly.
To this day, I confuse the singing voices of black women with those of black teen/preteen boys. When I first heard Salt N Peppa, I though they were boys, and when I first heard Tevin Campbell, I thought he was a woman.
i have had to convince so many people that annie lennox is a woman and that she's saying "This" not "these" in the song "sweet dreams (are made of this)"
When I was little I thought that Buddy Holly was called Bloody Holly!
When I was a little kid I was convinced that Little Richard and Captain Hook were the same person. They both had the same hair, mustache and clothes. But I could never figure out how Little Richard could play piano so well with a hook for a hand.
I used to think that the Spice Girl's first music video (I forogt what it was called) was actually them going into a random place and messing around. I lated learned it was staged.
I used to think that Janet Jackson's Escapade was really about the ice capades! You know, those traveling shows where a bunch of people dressed in leotards and wearing really huge, elaborate headresses with brightly colored feathers skate around the ice in various choreographed numbers? I thought she was REALLY into that kind of thing. I kind of thought if I was a big star, I'd have something better to do than go to an ice capade.
When I first saw Hanson, I thought they were girls!
I used to believe Britney Spears was the greatest singer of all time, and wished I could sound like her. I wondered why my recordings on my mini-tape recorder thing never sounded as polished. THEN Alanis Morissette's comeback single came out when I was about 11. Now I wonder how Britney ever made it...and yes I now know about high-tech recording studios, and most people think I'm a better singer than Britney.
Also, I didn't know about miming. Once, S Club 7 were on TOTP I said "They must be standing VERY close to their microphones to sound that much like they do on CD!!!" Welcome, Abbie, to the world of MIMING.
Also, I didn't know that the Carpenters' names were actually Karen and Richard CARPENTER. I always did wonder where they got their band name from.
Now I'm 14 all that's been cleared up, thank goodness!!
I used to believe Michael Jackson when I first saw him was a white woman.
i use to think boy geroge from the culture club was a pretty woman.
When I was younger I thought that Sid Vicious (who played bass in The Sex Pistols) and his girlfriend Nancy Spungen were the real-life Ken and Barbie who the dolls were modelled on. I believed that together they sang "I'm a Barbie Girl" by pop band Aqua. I was devastated when some one told me that Sid and Nancy were dead and Sid was suspected to have murdered her.
When I was in middleschool, U2 had a hit with "The Sweetest Thing." I used to hear this song on some radio station that played pop and r&b in equal doses, and for some reason I got the impression that U2 and Boyz II Men were really similar. Thus, I just assumed all the members of U2 were black.
