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.

From when I was 4 years old up until I was about 8, I used to believe that Boy George was the prettiest lady I'd ever seen.

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.

I grew up in Florida, and when I heard people talk about Jacksonville, I assumed it was a little Smurf village where Michael Jackson's family lived.

I used to think that there were two country singers: A man and a woman. And they both teamed up for all those duets, and had millions upon millions of songs. Two country singers. Well? They all sounded the same to me!

When I was a little girl, I watched a musicvideo of Kate Bush. After seeing it many, many times, finally my sister said; Don't play it anymore, she will be tired of singing it!
So my sister thought that Kate Bush had to sing the song every time we played it =)

i used to think the term prima donna was pre-madonna, and thought that when somebody used that term to describe someone, it meant that the person acted or looked like Madonna in the early 80's!

not a pre-maddona

I realized what an idea of Michael Jackson I've had. Though I knew he had changed deliberately.
He used to be black then he was/is white. So... he just grew up like this. He grew... pale.
