The Internet is in a tizzy over an interview in which teen dream Justin Bieber appears to not be familiar with the word „German”.
In the interview, a talk show host from New Zealand asks the 16-year-old a few true-or-false questions, including the query „True or false: ‘Bieber’ is German for basketball!”.
Bieber gets confused over the word „German,” and the interviewer repeats it.
After this back-and-forth, Bieber says he doesn’t know what the TV host means, and finally gives up on the question, proclaiming: „We don’t say that in America.”
Bieber offers his own explanation, via Twitter. „I thought this interviewer in NZ said ‘Jewman’ instead of ‘German’ people think I don’t know what German is?”
