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.
When I was little I thought that Shakin' Stevens was Elvis' nephew
When I was 8 i was convinced that Queensryche's song Jet City Woman was about me, that i went back into the late 70's and me and the singer, Geoff Tate had fallen in love.
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.
I used to believe that when people sang song they always looked different like when I heard Weird Al's Poodle hat song Genius in France I thought he was black had long black dread locks and wore a green shirt man was I so wrong. and yes I am a Weird Al addict
My brother thought Alexi Laiho from Children of Bodom, was in Hanson.
I thought Michael Jackson was a zombie.
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.
I recently very disturbed to learn that Al Jolson was in fact Caucasian.
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!
when i was a kid i thought that rufus of rufus and chaka khan was a person, not a band.
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!!
My friend used to think one guy in the Hansons was a girl and he had a huge crush on him and then his mom told him that sometimes guys just have really long hair. XD
