My brother and I were utterly fascinated when Micheal Jackson would do the Moonwalk, and we tried for hours to get it down ourselves, but we were never able to, so we were convinced that he was a wizard. When my eldest sister went to a Jackson concert one year, my brother and I pleaded her to not go because "he would put a curse" on her. Now, I'm still scared of him, but for different reasons.
I used to believe that Paul Simon was my cousin. He isn't.
You know how prissy, hammy, and uppity people sometimes get called "prima donnas?" Well, I, in my genius, used to think that they were being called "pre-Madonnas." If they were any worse, they'd be as bad as Madonna! Now, I want to know how I ended up knowing who Madonna was and what she was like when I was 4, but hey, it was the early 90's... maybe she was just more prevalent then. Still, it amuses me to think about.
My brother once convinced me that Cher was half robot. We were watching her "Believe" music video on TV. I believed him because of her metallic looking hair and the filters that they ran through the vocals made her look and sound robotic.
I thought that every singer was only entitled to one song. If you ended up with "Volare" or "Ode to Billy Joe", that was it; every new song written had to have a new singer to sing it. (I also thought it was "Ode to Billy Joel". I thought Billy Joel had found an interesting loophole to the one song/one singer rule by becoming a song subject.)
I used to be afraid of Tina Turner. I saw her as a monster or something like that.
I use to confuse Ozzy Osbourne and Donny Osmond when i was little,i sometimes still do,Worrying,seeing how i love sabbath but loathe Osmonds:S
For the longest time I didn't know that Spinal Tap wasn't a real group. No wonder I couldn't find their music.
I used to think my great-grandpa Floyd was a member of Pink Floyd. Granted, he was about 90 at the time, but that didnít stop me!
I used to mix up Madonna and Marilyn Monroe. Not only that, but I also used to mix up Marilyn Monroe and Marilyn Manson. So sometimes Madonna was the pretty lady with the flying dress, and sometimes she was this scary punk rock guy.
When Abbamania was on tv as a tribute thing, I watched it, and after hearing the lyrics 'thank Abba for the music', I was convinced that Abba invented music, and before they were around, it didn't exist...
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.)
Around 9, 10 I started putting posters of pop stars (Duran Duran, for instance) on my walls. I thought that they had tiny cameras in the eyes and could watch their fans whenever they wanted. This, of course, had me changing my clothes in the bathroom a whole lot!
When I was little I thought Madona was some sort of ancient egyptian singer and she died a long time ago. I also thought they just recently found her tomb.
i used to believe that Charles Manson was Marylin Manson's real name. So i used to go around school saying that i was a fan on Charles Manson and i liked him... this was before i was wacked up side the head for saying that to my mom... now i know the difference
I used to believe that every time I played a CD the singer would have to stop whatever he or she was doing, wherever they were in the world, and start singing for me.
I always thought that Little Richard was Cliff Richards younger brother
When I was little I thought Elvis died from a peanut allergy because he supposedly liked fried peanut butter sandwiches.
i have no idea why, but i used to believe David Hasselhoff was actually named Michael Jackson. Every time someone mentioned the real Micheal Jackson, i mentioned the funny "fact" that there was another star with exactly the same name.
some people got really insecure because i was so convinced about it.
My mother was a Beatles fan, and for many, many years I was convinced that, somehow, George Harrison and John Lennon were just different names for the same person. When I heard John Lennon died I was really very sad. When I found out that George Harrison died, I was really very confused.
It wasn't until recently that I got them straightened out.
