When I was younger, I asked my mom who Elvis was. She said that he was a person who said "yes" to drugs. For a long time, I used to think that was all he was known for.

I truly used to believe that the singer of the German heavy metal band "Sodom", who calls himself "Tom Angelripper" (for he doesn´t seem to like angels) is some kind of Bavarian or Austrian guy and "Angelripper" (sounding kinda like "Schwarzenegger" or "Rockefeller" when you pronounce it German) is a common name in Austria or Bavaria.

I used to believe that Ray Charles was Stevie Wonder's father. I remember telling my oldest brother this (8 years older). He responded by saying, "Just because they are both singers, blind and black, doesn't mean they're related!!"

20 years later, my brother told me he was very impressed at how "logical" I was at 7 years old, even though I was completely misguided in this particular belief.

I used to believe that The Beatles were all the same person, because I thought they all looked the same. I thought that whenever they were on TV, they just had different shots of the same guy waving or something, and when they had shots of them all together, they just edited the same guy in there four times.

when i was younger, i was convinced that the pop band Steps were following me around and spying on me - even when i was in the toilet (if your american reading this then you just have to know that they were a very cheesy '90s pop band).i never thought about the logistics of this and i wasn't particularly bothered by this as i absolutely loved them at the time.

When i was a pre-teen i wrote Michael Jackson a really long letter and so carefully worded it so as to entice him to PLEASE come to my house to have dinner with my family and me, and i believed for about a year that it was just a matter of time that he would show up on my doorstep. i really thought he would, and gee, in hindsight i see that he very well could have, given his track record today - and i'm so glad he never did!

the other day i was singing We're Not Gonna Take It in English class and in an attempt to shut me up my friend asks me "Who sings that?"
and i say "Twisted Sister."
so she goes "Good, then leave the singing to her."
and I was like "Uhhh it's not a girl, it's a full male band..."

I was about 10 or 11 when I first heard of Marilyn Manson. This was also the first time I'd heard of the name Marilyn, so I thought it was a man's name. A little later, I heard about Marylin Monroe, but when I saw a picture of 'him' I was shocked to see 'he' was a WOMAN! I was like, "a woman called Marylin!?"

In the early 1970s, a teenaged babysitter brought an album by "The Guess Who" over to the house. I was old enough to read, and upon studying the name on the album cover, demanded to know what group this was. She answered, "Guess Who", to which I replied, "I can't guess! Tell me!"

It took her quite awhile to get me to understand that this was a name of a group...and for years afterward, I always mixed them up with The Who.

When my much younger sister was about three or four she was watching a video clip on television and said to me "Who is that lady?"

I said with out trying to laugh, "It's Michael Jackson" as I honestly couldn't say anything else ... Lucky she didn't ask me again!

I used to believe that if you were nearly out of blank printer paper, the best way to get new paper would be to take the last sheet and photocopy it many times.

I also used to believe that a prima donna was someone who aspired to be like Madonna; therefore I remember being very upset whenever someone referred to me as one. I didn't like her teeth.

I once did a report on Marilyn Manson, but I had no idea who MM was, so I made up some facts, one I remember was that "she attended an all girls school from ages 6-12" boy was I in trouble!!
