When I Was 3-8 Years Old, I Used To Believe That Michael Jackson Was The Greatest Person On Earth, Because Of His Signature Move; The Moon Walk.
when i bought magazines like The Hits, Top of th Pops or whatever as a child, for the longest time i thought that the government had this lil conspiracy and were recording our every movements. i always thought that the people in the magazines had lil minute cameras in their eyes. i got so freaked out sometimes dat i wudnt get changed in the same room as my magazines. i wud jus walk bak and forth in my room lookin at th magazine in th otha side of th room as if they were 'starin' at me.
I always thought that Slash was the same guy as Ozzy Osbourne.
Ever notice those clear, plastic 'walls' that are placed around drum sets?
Until the age of 12 I thought these were to protect the public from the drummer, should one of his drumsticks go flying.
i use to believe that Elvis and M. jackson were in my shower. i would be scared to use our bathroom because i thought they would jump out at me and kill me by there voices.
Until the age of 12, Richard Branson was the lead singer of The Bee Gees. No one told me this, I must have just seen the whole blonde hair and moustache/goatee affair and presumed. I was gutted when I found out, mostly because I found out by confidently telling all my friends and then being mocked for a few years.
I thought that the REM song that has the lyrics in "calling trying to wake her" actually said "calling cheryl Baker" I was totally convinced that REM had made a song about the ex Bucks Fizz singer
when I was 4 or 5 I thought That elvis was my dad because he had sude burns and elvis hair and he was (and still is) fat I used to crie when people said elvis died
You know how prissy, hammy, and uppity people sometimes get called "prima donnas?" Well, I, in my genius, used to think that they were being called "pre-Madonnas." If they were any worse, they'd be as bad as Madonna! Now, I want to know how I ended up knowing who Madonna was and what she was like when I was 4, but hey, it was the early 90's... maybe she was just more prevalent then. Still, it amuses me to think about.
I used to listen to oldies on the radio all the time. My favorite artists were the Beach Boys, and I always pictured them as really cool, hip surfers. But then I saw an old clip of them performing in formal wear and I was incredibly disappointed because I thought they were nerds.
Also, I used to have a record player in my room with an Elvis record. I actually thought Elvis was a comedian because I heard the girls screaming and thought they were just laughing really loudly.
i used to think that ozzy osbourne was a hockey player, and i thought michael jackson was a basketball player.
I used to think that Ellis Island was Elvis Presley's own island, or something like that. I used to watch PBS all the time, so in between the kid's programs there would be specials on stuff, and I think there was one on Ellis Island, and then there would be a commercial for Elvis's greatest hits or something, and I associated them. Strange though, as there was two kids in my kindergarten class who's last name was Ellis...don't know why I didn't connect those two.
When I was through the ages of 5-8 I got Marylin Manson and Marilyn Monroe mixed up
I knew that crazy glue was pretty strong. So as my obsession with Stevie Wonder grew as I child, I vowed that when I was old enough, I would shave my head and glue a beaded braid wig on.
When I first read Mandy Moore's biography on the internet, I thought that Mandy Moore's grandfather was Roger Moore.
My Dad was (and still is) a huge Gordon Lightfoot fan, and used to sing along constantly to his tapes and records. He's got a good voice, and would always imitate him while he sang. Because his voice so perfectly matched Gordon's, for the longest time, I used to tell people my dad was Gordon Lightfoot! Not sure if anyone really believed me, but I thought I was cool nonetheless. It never occured to me that they didn't even remotely look alike, and I never stopped to think about why we had different last names. I guess I figured he had separate identities: His public image, and his private one!
I was a big fan of Chevy Chase when I was a kid from the National Lampoons movies and so, when I saw Paul Simons video clip for "Call me Al" with Chevy in it I assumed he sang it... I went on believing so until my mid teens
When I was little I thought the members in Queen were all woman because of their long hair. This confused me because the voices singing were clearly men. I never believed my brother when he told me they were men. (keep in mind I only saw the band members once, in a music video where they're faces were dark. all i saw was the long hair)
When I was little, I used to love the Spice Girls. I had a tape of them, and I listened to it so much that one day it went all weird and suddenly their voices sounded right deep. For some reason, I always thought that it was like that because the Backstreet Boys ate them.
I used to think that AC/DC stood for the first letters of the band members' names. Oh, how mistaken I was.
I also thought that the Rolling Stones were stone rollers, (which meant the rolled stones down hills as a hobby) Rob Zombie was actually a ghost story called "Rob the Zombie," and that Michael Jackson was best friends with Prince. o_O I was a wierd kid. (Still am, I'm 12 now. ^^;)
