Teen singer claims that nobody uses the word in the US

Justin Bieber has made himself look a mite silly by getting confused over a simple term during an interview in New Zealand.

When a talk show host asked the 16-year-old if his surname ‘Bieber‘ means ‘basketball’ in German, the teen star didn’t understand the question. The word ‘German‘ didn’t register at all.

Not even when he saw G-e-r-m-a-n spelt out.

Of course, it could just be the Kiwi accent of the TV presenter that confused Justin but he claimed, ‘We don’t say that in America’.
