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.

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!!

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.

I used to think Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson were married. I never could figure out why they looked so much alike.

Years ago, I read an article about Stevie Nicks, and in it she briefly touched on past relationships. This was before I really knew who was who in Fleetwood Mac, and when she mentioned her short marriage to Kim Anderson in '83, and her on-again-off-again relationship with Lindsey Buckingham, my first thought was: "All these years, I had NO idea she was a lesbian!"

It wasn't until it dawned on me that Lindsey was the *MALE* guitarist... I guess I always assumed that 'Lindsey' was the gorgeous, classy English woman (Christine McVie).

My brother once convinced me that Cher was half robot. We were watching her "Believe" music video on TV. I believed him because of her metallic looking hair and the filters that they ran through the vocals made her look and sound robotic.

Not an android either

Ages ago I saw a cinema leaflet that said they had a discount for UB40. It meant what they now call 'Jobseekers' allowance', but I thought it meant the reggae band. I figured the owner of the cinema must have been a fan and thought if he offered a discount he might get to meet them.

My brother convinced me that "Kate Bush" was actually a swear word, he then bullied me to say it. I wouldn't, he then went round shouting the name and I was amazed no-one told him off. Actually, now I think it would be a great swear word.
