Justin Bieber doesn’t know what “German” means, denies Canadian identity
Even though we’re not 12-year-olds, this video of Justin Bieber making a fool out of himself on a New Zealand entertainment show pains us. (Take a look at the clip at the left.) When the interviewer asks him if “Bieber” is German for “basketball,” the Biebs is beyond confused by the meaning of the word “German.” Even when the interviewer apologizes for his accent and shows Bieber the word, he says, “I don’t know what that means.” It’s like a sketch on Flight of the Conchords. Bieber then adds, even more cringe-inducingly, “We don’t say that in America.” America? What the what? At least Canadians can avoid national embarrassment.
