When I was about 4, I used to make an impression of Michael Jackson's songs, and everyone thought that was cute. One day dad said something like "you really like HIM, don't you?". I was horrified, as I thought Michael Jackson was a woman (because of the hair, i guess)... that was the last time i did an impression of anyone.
I used to think Elotn John was really weird (for other reasons than the obvious). I didn't know Elton was a first name, I only knew John was, so until I was like ten I was convinced he was going through some awkward phase where he reversed his first and last name becasue he was pissed at something, and that his name was actually John Elton.
I used to believe Little Richard was a nickname for Ringo in The Beatles because I knew his real name was Richard Starkey and he was the shortest in the band. I thought it was cute and was pretty disappointed when I found out Little Richard was an entirely different person.
While walking home from junior high school I would sing, thinking that there would be a talent scout in one of the cars who would discover me and I'd be a star.
I used to believe that Cliff Richards got his own name wrong - it should've been Richard Cliff, not the other way round.
This wasn't MY belief but....
My dad once told me that the members of the rock band Poison were "some damn fine looking women"
When I was young I thought that Jim Carrey and Mariah Carey were married because they had the same last name.
I used to think that Janet Jackson's Escapade was really about the ice capades! You know, those traveling shows where a bunch of people dressed in leotards and wearing really huge, elaborate headresses with brightly colored feathers skate around the ice in various choreographed numbers? I thought she was REALLY into that kind of thing. I kind of thought if I was a big star, I'd have something better to do than go to an ice capade.
I used to talk to the Led Zeppelin poster on my wall - thinking that the members from Led Zeppelin could hear me talking to them, like I had some sort of telepathic connection with them or something. I didn't even know that John Bonham was dead, until I was six.
Because of her hoarse voice, I thought Macy Gray was really old, probably somewhere in her 80s (she's around 35 right now).
I used to believe that the reason Ray Charles' back-up group, the Raylettes, seemed to sing the same words as Ray did was because he was blind and couldn't read them himself.
I sincerely beleived john lennon was a walrus until i was about six. I think you beatles fans out there can guess why.
During Catholic school I was under the impression that everyone in the United States was Catholic. This same time I believed all musicians and 80s glam bands lived in California. I merged the two concepts and would daydream about a west coast church with multiple live performances from all its celebrity parishioners.
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 about 5 or 6, I discovered that Michael Jackson had outbid Paul McCartney for The Beatles catalog and was making money on songs that weren't his and so on... so I decided to start saving money to buy the catalog back for Sir Paul! I seriously thought that my pennies and dimes would be enough! But of course no one could know because Michael Jackson would find out, come into my room and steal the money... and my soul.
I used to think that Aretha Franklin's name was Urethra Franklin.
I was sure that Led Zeppelin was the lead singer of the Rolling Stones.
I felt really sorry for Mariah Carey when I was little. I thought her face was actually a mask, and because her real face was ugly she wouldn't be allowed to be a pop star unless she wore her mask. Why I thought this I have no idea...
when elvis died, everyone was really upset. i asked what was going on, amd my mum told me a singer died from drug over taking. from then on i assumed ALL singers die from drug over taking.
I used to beleive Freddy Mercury was a wrestler
