I thought my aunt was Tina Turner actually, but she is keeping this as a secret...
When i was young my mum was always listening to her favourite band. i used to believe it was called 'brown bread'. then i found out it was 'meat loaf'
I used to think that when I went out, like to the grocery store or something, there just might happen to be an agent or something looking for talented kids. So everywhere I went, I would dance to the radio or sing quietly hoping that someone would see me and make me famous. I know now that it probably wouldn't happen, but sometimes I still do it just in case!
Until just a few weeks ago, I thought Puff Daddy and P. Diddy were 2 different people.
I'm into country...
When I was young I thought that only people in Texas had heard of Michael Jackson. This of course was when Thriller came out. When I went to Florida to visit my family I was shocked to find out that he was also quite popular elsewhere.
My older brother would put up posters for the rock shows he was going to, and they would say thing like "Dokken, with VERY SPECIAL GUESTS." I thought the Very Special Guests were going to be some huge megastars who showed up to play a set with Dokken and blow everyone's mind. I'd assume it would make the national news the next day. Like "Ace Frehley made a surprise appearance at the Poughkeepsie Civic Center last night with Dokken!!"
But it turned out to just be the warm up band.
a friend of mine thought that hanson was hott till he found out they were boys.
My mom has a great collection of vinyl (yes, VINYL!) records... lots of 60's and 70's stuff. So, as a kid, I was exposed to a lot of great music, and knew a lot of trivia about the bands and their music. One day when I was about twelve, some song by Sting (solo) came on the radio and I said "oh, I love this song! Sting sounds JUST like the singer of the Police!". I am now 27 and have not lived it down.
When I was little I thought that Buddy Holly was called Bloody Holly!
that rivers cuomo (from weezer) and buddy holly were the same person because of the glasses. when they first came out i wondered how a dead guy could be the lead singer of a band
I was at the roller skating rink in the 70's and heard a great song, so I asked the DJ for the title. I went to the record store and, unable to find it, asked a clerk for help. "What's the name of the song?" he asked. "Paradise," I replied. "And who sings it?" it took me a moment to remember what the DJ had said but then - "it's by The Dashboard Light!"
When I was young, I used to believe that singers actually wrote and really meant what they were singing about. That they were singing about their life experiences.
I used to believe that when biggie smalls died his ghost would come and get me. so I would put teddy bears all around my bed to protect me.
I had this poster of Britney Spears I used to believe that everything I did to this poster would happen to her so everyday I made her a different outfit, I talked to her, gave her food, watch tv with her and play with my barbie.....I also used to bring her to school with me 4 show and tell and to make all my friends jealous cuz I was friends with Britney Spears......... boy was I stupid
I used to get George Strait and Garth Brooks mixed up. I also though that Garth Brooks was a member of Brooks & Dunn on the side.
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!
I used to believe M.C. Escher was a rapper. Much to my surprise, he was an artist, and died before rap was even invented. I only thought he was a rapper because of "M.C."
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 around 6 or 7, i thought there was a difference between normal people dying and pop stars dying, i was sure they weren't really dead because they could still sing on the radio and such.. i probably figured their disembodied voice stayed alive forever.
I believed for quite a long time that Marvin Gaye was blind. We had a 45 rpm record of "I heard it through the Grapevine" with him wearing dark sunglasses on the cover. Glasses were so similar to those Ray Charles wore... So i just assumed Marvin was blind too.
