- fun faith fact! Michael Stipe was raised Methodist
Michael Stipe was raised in a Methodist household, where he moved often with his Army family. He has been one of the more interesting figures in recent rock memory, including his sexuality, theatrical style, and wildly popular hit "Losing My Religion." While Stipe doesn't claim Buddhism in his lyrics, he has long been associated with the religion. Photo courtesy of Charlie Brewer.
