pop starsShow most recent or highest rated first.
Up until about oh say 2 years ago (when I was ten) I thought Led Zeppelin was The Rolling Stones. Not by their songs, just how they looked. Never told anyone, then my brother showed me a picture of Jimmy Page and I thought 'Wow..that guy's HOT!'
I used to believe that Michael Jackson and Nancy Kerrigan were the same person. No idea why.
when i was was little i thought that pop stars were stars in space would pop
I thought that The Beach Boys were a school band made up of people in my brother's year. In 1994, I was quite shocked (and confused) to learn that one of them had died in 1983...
I used to think that Lenin and John Lennon were the same person.
when i was younger my dad used to listen to Don Henley all the time. my brother and i would turn it up and dance around like crazy to the songs he played. we used to ask him, "daddy, will you turn on John Henry?" We seriously thought his name was John Henry. My parents never corrected us. They must've thought it was pretty funny.
i used to believe that pop stars were little robots that were plugged into the microphone befor every show. that way, they would never mess up.
When i was younegr i always that their were 2 michael jacksons- the white mj and the black mj- i thought about that up until i was about 10... then i realized there was only 1 michael jackson
When I was about 7 or 8 I was sitting in the back of the car singing along to a Blondie song and casually said to my mom, "Don't I just sound just like Debbie Harry". I think my mom spluttered something in the negative, although to this day I still think I sound just like Debbie Harry and put it down to jealously of my singing prowess on my mom's part
I took my little 8 year old cousin to watch that Romeo and Juliet movie with Leonardo Di Caprio. When we came back home, we were watching MTV and then this Smashing Pumpkins video, "Tonight tonight" came on, and she thought Billy Corgan was Leonardo Di Caprio for some odd reason!
i used to believe that the hanson guy (taylor) was a girl
I remember not knowing what "gay" meant and loving Elton John's music.
Since he was only one person, and a band was never mentioned, I always pictured him hopping up and down on a pogo stick, playing a small piano that hung around his neck, drums, trumpets, and whatever else. I guess that gave new meaning to the term "one man band".
I used to believe that John Lennon had been poisoned. I knew that he'd been murdered, but I thought someone had injected him with something. I was only 2 or 3 when he died, and I finally realized that I must have heard news reports that he'd been "shot." I guess as a small child, the word "shot" suggested a needle rather than a gun.
I had this poster of Britney Spears I used to believe that everything I did to this poster would happen to her so everyday I made her a different outfit, I talked to her, gave her food, watch tv with her and play with my barbie.....I also used to bring her to school with me 4 show and tell and to make all my friends jealous cuz I was friends with Britney Spears......... boy was I stupid
Not too long ago, I had my younger sister(who is 10) convinced that Gerard Way, singer of My Chemical Romance, was a girl. Later on she heard me talking to a friend about how I could'nt stand female singers. She was confused girl, it took a while before she'd believe me again.
My older brother would put up posters for the rock shows he was going to, and they would say thing like "Dokken, with VERY SPECIAL GUESTS." I thought the Very Special Guests were going to be some huge megastars who showed up to play a set with Dokken and blow everyone's mind. I'd assume it would make the national news the next day. Like "Ace Frehley made a surprise appearance at the Poughkeepsie Civic Center last night with Dokken!!"
But it turned out to just be the warm up band.
I used to believe that Alice Cooper and Alice from "Alice in Wonderland" were the same person.
I used to think that the Buffalo Springfield were Tom Springfield (Dusty's brother)'s band, and that Rick Springfield was his son. I was proved wrong later!
I used to believe that the duo Hall & Oats were farmers. Why else would they name themselves "Haulin' Oats"?
I was raised Catholic. While we were driving down the road, the Bob Dylan song came on, with the lyrics, "Everybody must get stoned." The only linguistic reference I had for the word stoned was from the story in the bible where people are chucking rocks at other people. I was totally puzzled as to why everyone would have to be pelted with rocks, but figured that it must be part of growing up.
