* Rock icon and sex symbol Jim Morrison, lead singer of TheDoors, was a huge bookworm from an early age and began writing in earnest during his adolescence. He was inspired by the writings of several philosophers and poets. He was influenced by FriedrichNietzsche, whose views on aesthetics, morality, and the Apollonian and Dionysian duality would appear in his conversation, poetry and songs. Some of his formative influences were Plutarch's ''ParallelLives'' and the works of the French Symbolist poet Arthur Rimbaud, whose style would later influence the form of Morrison's short prose poems. He was also influenced by WilliamSBurroughs, JackKerouac, AllenGinsberg, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Charles Baudelaire, {{Moliere}}, FranzKafka, HonoreDeBalzac and Jean Cocteau, along with most of the French existentialist philosophers. He self-published two separate volumes of his poetry in 1969. At UCLA he studied the related fields of theater, film, and cinematography.

* Music/TaylorSwift named her cats [[Series/LawAndOrderSVU Olivia Benson]] and [[Series/GreysAnatomy Meredith Grey]], which qualifies as kind of geeky even if the shows in question are mainstream.

** This was only part of Jackson's life-long association with Sega, which started with ''VideoGame/MichaelJacksonsMoonwalker'' (which only came to be because Nintendo didn't take the proposal for a NES adaptation) all the way to ''VideoGame/SpaceChannel5 Part 2''.
** Still on the subject of videogames, for years it was believed that he only lent his likeness to ''VideoGame/Ready2RumbleBoxing Round 2'', but as it turns out, he voiced himself too. He liked the original enough to ask Midway to put him in the sequel, and they did, along with Shaquille O'Neal (who is mentioned over in OneOfUs/AthleticEggheads).

* It almost goes without saying that Music/WeirdAlYankovic is OneOfUs. The video for "White And Nerdy" alone has enough content to outgeek at least any two other examples on this list. That said, he's dropped enough hints in various appearances through the years that everyone knew decades before that video.

That said, he's dropped enough hints in various appearances through the years that everyone knew decades before that video. Case in point: "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hEcjgJSqSRU The Saga Begins]]", his retelling of ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'' to the tune of "[[Music/DonMcLean American Pie]]". He released that song before the film premiered, and only had access to some parts of the script. Still it turned out ''very'' accurate to the film.



* The similarities to [[Manga/DeathNote Mello]] in {{Music/Madonna}}'s ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rx0mYN32Kps Jump]]'' video? [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jump_(Madonna_song)#Music_video They're intentional.]]

* Music/{{Nightwish}} songs include references to Dragonlance, Lord of the Rings, and an entire EpicRocking nerdgasm over the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon, and Marco has confessed to loving video games. Band leader and keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen always has a figurine of [[Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Captain Jack Sparrow]], whom he resembles, tied to the front of his keyboards during concerts.
