In fifth grade my aunt took my two cousins and I to a Hanson concert. We had a great time watching our favorite band perform. When our older highschool age cousins would tease us about liking Hason, we would always replay with "well at least they write and play their own music".
Eight years later, at my cousin's graduation party, we were reminiscing about the concert, and my aunt went on to tell us about how there was a band playing behind the stage, and the Hanson brothers were only playing a few cords, must of the music was from the guys behind them. At 18 it crushed my heart. My cousins and I felt like such fools for never noticing.
When I was 4 years old (before I knew what homosexuality was) I was convinced that Michael Jackson, Boy George, and Prince were all involved in a love triangle with each other. I wasn't sure who liked who or what, but I was so sure that they were all romantically involved with each other.
When I was little I used to think that Boy George was the prettiest woman I had ever seen. But I was really confused because that lady's name was Boy.
I believed that i met the Spice Girls when i was a baby and that when i got older they wanted me to come on tour with them. For years i thought that they were going to come and get me to sing with them. My dreams were shattered when i asked my mom " Didn't the Spice Girls want me to sing with them when i got older?" and she just gave me a crazy look and said that i never met the Spice Girls.
Up until about fifth grade, i believed that Eminem was a pop group consisting entirely of girls. I'd never heard one of his songs, and when i finally did, i was completely shocked. :]
i used to think rap was the only type/genre of music.
so i forced myself to listen to p-diddy. then i found the spice girls..
I used to believe that Michael Jackson was actually a woman. I had an entire argument with my sister over whether the person on the screen was male or female and I yelled "But she has long hair!"
Remember the commercial back in the day that had Michael Jackson dancing in the street. Well when I first saw it, I was convinced that he was a girl. My Grandmother and my mom tried to tell me it was a guy, but no matter how much they argued with me, they could not convince me otherwise. I believed he was a female for most of my childhood years.
When I was little (about 7), I really liked the Beatles. They just seemed so friendly and easy to like and their music was great. On the other hand, I felt uneasy about the Rolling Stones. Their melodies sounded depressing to me. And because of their song Sympathy For The Devil, I really thought that Mick Jagger was the devil and his band mates a bunch of demons, all cleverly disguised as men. I ended up having some dreams where the Beatles had a music battle with the Rolling Stones. The Beatles would get hurt from being hit by the Stones guitars, but then the Blue Meannies would come to the rescue and turn Mick Jagger and his cohorts into grey frozen pictures. Yeah, I know--I was a little too imaginative for my age. ;-)
When I was 5 years old, my favorite song of all time was The Yellow Submarine by the Beatles. I really thought that those guys learned how to travel in a submarine and actually recorded the song while inside one under water. I guess their sound effects were a little too convincing for me!
I used to believe that Yulia Volkova and Lena Katina from t.A.T.u. (my favorite band) were actually lesbians.
I thought that Captain & Tennille was just one man, named Captain Antenille. Whenever I heard my mother talk about "him," I thought that he must be from France if he had a last name like that!
My ex-girlfriend took a lot of convincing that Annie Lennox was the lead singer of the Eurythmics, & not just a singer who sang in a similar style.
When i was really little, like three, i saw Cliff Richard performing on tv. He was wearing a really shiny, sparkling white suit and and for some reason this held so much appeal. So i told my mom that i was going to marry Cliff Richard one day and he would wait for me. I really believed that he would... Good thing the Peter Pan of Pop never aged hey? Needless to say i am still ripped off by my entire family and my boyfriend, 18 years later.
I sincerely beleived john lennon was a walrus until i was about six. I think you beatles fans out there can guess why.
I believed that when I watched the labyrinth or listened to David Bowie songs, David could see and hear me and was singing to and about me, and acting just for me in the film, if you know what I mean. David used to make me feel very bashful and shy, seeing has he's so good looking and impressive. I was convinced we were friends.
I also thought that Lindsifame wrote the song Lady Eleanor about me (seeing as it's my name) and that when they sung it they were inside my tape player singing it TO me. My mum used to put it on the stereo when she gave me a bath and I would blush and get really shy.
I'm 20 now and still have a massive crush on David Bowie.
I used to think the Beatles were gay because they all lived together in a yellow submarine.
When I first heard about the band Motion City Soundtrack. I thought there was a movie called Motion City and it had a soundtrack.
Before I ever saw photos or video of the Beatles and had only heard their songs on the radio, I believed they were all robots, because I never heard intakes of breath when they sang.
Up until I was about 11 or so, I believed that Cher was a man, since she has a rather deep voice for a lady. Me and a friend were hanging out one day listening to the radio, when one of Cher's songs came on. I said to her how that "man" had a rather unusual voice. It was then that I found out that it was not, indeed, a man siging, but that it was just a woman with a deep voice. I'm now 20 and still get a laugh out of this, especially when I hear that particular song on the radio.
