Moby is a vegan. That means he won't eat anything that comes from animals (eggs, cheese, milk, etc).
When he couldn't get his songs on the radio, he started licensing them for commercials to get them exposure. His album Play is the first to have every song used in commercials. The ads gave the album a huge boost in sales.
His real name is Richard Melville Hall.
He is the great-great-great grandnephew of Herman Melville, who wrote Moby Dick. That is how he chose the name Moby.
Moby is a born-again Christian. He doesn't drink alcohol.
Created the Area: One tour featuring different styles of music made up of bands he likes, including Incubus, Outkast, and Nelly Furtado. He kept the ticket prices down by working with sponsors, which he was good at from licensing his songs in commercials.
His prize posession is a drawing of Homer Simpson's head signed by Matt Groening, the creator of The Simpsons.

Moby is yet another artist to demand concert promoters to buy him underwear, as his tour rider notes.
Moby grew up an only child to a single mother after his father died in a drink-driving accident when he was two years old.
His mother died of cancer, in 1998, a year before Moby's hit album Play was released. He recalled to NME in 2018 how a night of heavy drinking left him hungover and too incapacitated to attend her funeral: "Unsurprisingly, I'm sober now," Moby said. "It's clearly a sign that things aren't working out when you sleep through your mom's funeral."
Moby used to own Marlon Brando's old house, an eight-bedroom replica of a Norman castle dubbed Wolf's Lair. Built in 1927 for Milton Wolf, a Hollywood developer and art director, it has also been inhabited by Debbie Reynolds and The Beatles.
