she was wearing black tights at the time and i said, "duh. i know. the bottom half!"

horribly misinformed.

Until I was about 4, I used to think that every song on the radio was written and performed by someone i knew. I would listen and try to figure out which of my relatives was singing. It was just beyond me that there were people in the world i'd never net. Once I told my mom I wanted to hear the song my Uncle Tom sings, and she explained that the person singing was actually Phil Collins.

i was obsessed with the spice girls and was convinced that at any time i would bump into them in the street and they would ask me to be the 6th member so i learned all their songs and was always looking out for them wherever i went

For some reason, I got Andy Williams and Neil Diamond confused via the songs...then I figured it out via Christmas tunes...

When I was little I got Barry Manilo and Baryy WHite mixed up. I used to think Barry Manilo was the Barry with the deep sexy voice. I thought Barry White was the white Barry

Once when I was 5, I had a friend sleep over at my house and that night my mom watched a show about Michael Jackson's life. We saw that in the older pictures of him he was black, and in the newer hew was white. We for some reason thought that Michael Jackson was dead, so we came up with this theory that when you die, if you are black you become white. My friemd and I are both white, so we thought when we died, we would be black. I didn't find out what really happened until I was 8.

I used to think that Michael Buble's last name rhymed with the word "Bugle"....until one day my mom confirmed that it is indeed pronounced "boo-blay", not "bewble" lol!!!

When I was younger, I thought that musicians would only want to ever listen to the music that they played. So when I was a kid,I read an an interview with a male pop artist. The interviewer asked him bands he liked to listen to. In my childish brain, I thought 'duhh, of course he listens to himself!'

I was surprised to learn that that particular pop singer was into the Beatles.

...I'm sure he was probably just trying to sound modest, though.

I used to think that Bob Marley was a fictional character from the story "A Christmas Carol". This was probably due to the fact that in "Muppet Christmas Carol", Statler and Waldorf (the two old man Muppets who heckled the audience in "The Muppet Show") played Jacob and Robert Marley. I knew at the time I saw this that "Bob" was a nickname for people named "Robert", so when I saw VH1's "100 Greatest Artists of Rock And Roll" and Bob Marley was featured on there, I was confused as to why a character from "A Christmas Carol" would be considered a rock musician (or a musician of any genre, for that matter.)

When I was about 7 there was a big field by my school and a small shack. I was told that Bon Jovi lived there. That was enough to convince me. After a while that shack was torn down and loads of houses took over. I wondered what happened to poor Bon Jovi.

I used to think that 'gay' just meant happy and when the teacher asked what I wanted to be when I grew up I replied 'gay' when the teacher asked me what I meant by that I said 'Gay, just like Elton John'

I use to believe that Elvis Presley must have been awfully thirsty, becuase my Mother use to say how he 'never drank'.

When I was a kid my mum had an old stereo which looked like a wooden cupboard, When we put on old vinyls she always told us to close the front. I believed that when the music was playing the band appeared on top of the record and started to play. So many times I tried to take a peek but as I opened the door they would disappear because they were shy, thats why they made records and weren't on tv, while the other bands that were on tv didn't make records.

This isn't my belief, but a friend's. A few days ago (I'm 10), I was testing some classmates of mine on pop culture (Doctor Who, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, ect.) and mentioned that I knew the names of the Beatles at an early age (John, Paul, George, and Ringo). He then claimed he thought there were 5 members. Then he asked something horrifying, "The Beatles, aren't they B-5?". I assumed that B-5 was a modern boy band and that my friend had thought that "The Beatles" was some sort of nickname for them. My dad (the man responsible for my pop culture I. Q.) confirmed my fears. Let this be a lesson to fathers everywhere, educate your children about pop culture before their friends put the misunderstandings on this site!

I used to believe that Elvis (a fat singer in a white suit) and Elvis Presley (a thin movie star) were two different people. I only ever saw both on reruns in the eighties, and didn't realize they were the same people until they made him into a stamp.

I used to believe that the guys from KISS wore their make-up and garb 24/7. Gene would pop off down the shops poking out his tongue and spitting blood. I was so disappointed when I realised it was just a hook to sell records and merch.

I used to think that all songs that played on television were pop songs.

So one time when I was chatting on Yahoo Messenger, this person mentioned Puddle of Mudd and told them there's a pop band called Puddle Of Mudd. My brother then corrected me by saying that Puddle of Mudd is a ROCK band.
