I used to think that Aretha Franklin's name was Urethra Franklin.
When I was really young, I was convinced Michael Jackson lived in a storage room at the local 7-11. This was because the room had a small hole in the door and when I looked in, I saw several cases of Pepsi. This was around the time he was endorsing Pepsi, so I figured he lived in there.
For years I heard of singer Waylon Jennings without otherwise being aware of any such name as "Waylon". I thought they were calling him "Wailin' Jennings" and that that must be a nickname acquired because somebody charaterized his singing as wailing.
When I was younger I believed that some songs should have been by different bands.
Iron Man was by Iron Maiden and not Black Sabbath
Cars was by the Cars and not Gary Numan
Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go was by the Go-Gos and not Wham
Far earlier I also believed that "I Ran" by A Flock of Seagulls was a metal song because it had distorted guitars and a solo.
I used to think that musicians were singing live in music videos and was always amazed that they sounded just like they did on the radio.
When I was young I used to think that Micheal Jackson was a girl.
I used to believe michael jackson swam in the pool of bleach that's how he changed his skin color.. (he cud do it cos he is rich :P)
I believed for quite a long time that Marvin Gaye was blind. We had a 45 rpm record of "I heard it through the Grapevine" with him wearing dark sunglasses on the cover. Glasses were so similar to those Ray Charles wore... So i just assumed Marvin was blind too.
I used to believe Little Richard was a nickname for Ringo in The Beatles because I knew his real name was Richard Starkey and he was the shortest in the band. I thought it was cute and was pretty disappointed when I found out Little Richard was an entirely different person.
when i was around 6 or 7, i thought there was a difference between normal people dying and pop stars dying, i was sure they weren't really dead because they could still sing on the radio and such.. i probably figured their disembodied voice stayed alive forever.
When I was about 5 or 6, I discovered that Michael Jackson had outbid Paul McCartney for The Beatles catalog and was making money on songs that weren't his and so on... so I decided to start saving money to buy the catalog back for Sir Paul! I seriously thought that my pennies and dimes would be enough! But of course no one could know because Michael Jackson would find out, come into my room and steal the money... and my soul.
when i was about 7 years old the only thing i listened to was rap but i was a huge fan of michael jackson...so i ended up having a huge arguement with my family becuz i thought he was a rapper
When I was about three years old my sister said that Mariah Carey lived next door and I believed her.
My dad told me that the Beatles asked him to join and he said 'No, Ta.' I believed this until quite an age, probalby because my sister had quite an obsession with them and my dad sported a 60s style George Harrison style beard!
I used to think that Madonna was like a really mean person no one liked because of the term Prema-Donna
I was a bit confused
I used to believe that Prince was the lead singer of Queen
My friend used to believe J low and Jennifer Lopez were entirely different people.
when I was 7, I had a book about Hanson and I thought Taylor was a girl and could never figure out why the book kept saying "he". When I finally realized they were guys I actually thought he was kinda cute. lol
boy am i dumb!
I used to think the in ears that singers wore when performing live were hearing aids because they were always standing in front of those speakers that it made them go deaf.
