Last chance to apply for a 2-for-1 voucher to The Next Web Conference Latin America (28 & 29 August 2013)!
Well, I expect the average German doesn’t know who Justin Bieber is either…
(“I do know German, but Jermaine doesn’t know me.”)
Justin doesn’t understand the poorly asked question “is German for Basketball” when the interviewer should have asked “is Bieber, German for Basketball”.
exactly …. fuckin retards…. in no way does he express a lack of knowledge for the term .. only for the retarded form in which the question was asked, and hes right we dont say that shit … and i dont even like a lick of this kids music lol..
The question actually was “Bieber is German for basketball. True or False?” As a question that makes perfect sense – the presenter even showed Bieber the card so he could read the question himself.
Not really rocket surgery.
Rocket Science or Brain Surgery… pick one.
Why are you defending the kid?? The interviewer asked “Justin…Bieber, sorry, is german for basketball? True or False?” Bieber then said “Is what?” Then he even pointed to the word “German” on the card.
It has nothing to do with how he asked the question. Justin looked at the cue card. He saw the word “German” and said he had no idea what that meant.
Maybe the question was worded poorly and hard for a 12 year old to understand but when he read the word ‘German’ (if he can in fact read) he should have understood the question. He didn’t.
German? it’s a country and a language and it’s pretty common place in America… It’s offered as a second language is almost every high school and it’s a major part of our couture in the form of Beer. This just goes to show that our education system continues to fail….
yea, good point. It was a tough question.
yeah, and then when he showed him the word on the paper he just had a brief lapse of blindness eh? He doesn’t know what German is. That’s it. Don’t try to defend it because you think he’s LIKE ZOMG SUPAR CUTE.
He doesn’t say “Is German for basketball”, he says “Is Bieber German for basketball, true or false”. He even shows him the card so he can see what he is asking.
Still doesn’t understand, he’s too concerned about how his hair is fitting under his beanie….
um, in what way was the question poorly asked?
What’s a Justin Bieber?
Well, unfortunately, it seems that the Justin Bieber wave has hit Germany already. I wish I (as a German) could say I don’t know that kid. In German ‘bieber’ is that cute little animal you call beaver, by the way—–
HaHa, he should die in a fire.
But hey he doesn’t have to be smart when he has 16yr old girls around the world swooning for him HaHa
You should die in a fire.
HE should die in a fire. and you with him.
haha good call
All three of you should die in a fire.
Can I die in a fire too?
And Beiber, so make that four of them dying in a fire.
I’m American (of German descent by the way) and I have no idea, nor do I particularly care who Justin Bieber is. Small wonder we lag so far behind the rest of the world in education.
This was just embarrassing.. I don’t like Americans going overseas and making us look as moronic as they stereotypically think we all are.
ummm he’s Canadian btw, dont worry, you just proved americans are moronic on your own.
canada is part of america. just saying..
“We don’t say that in America”
you know Bieber is Canadian right?
Michael, you should not blame your lack of education on your German descent.
he’s not american… he’s canadian…
I don’t understand either… In the context ‘Are you German for basketball’, what the hell DOES German mean??
Are you serious? If someone asked you “Is ‘Jeska’ German for ‘brother’” would you seriously have no idea what they mean?
Germany is a country. German is a language. How are you not able to put two and two together? It’s really not that difficult of a question. The kid is just an idiot.
I am ashamed that Justin Bieber is Canadian… :| I guess you get Americanized… and loose the education you learn lol… I just kid but this reminds me of Miss California when she was proposing education for Americans in Africa or something like that….
“loose the education you learn”
you must have loosed it too.
hahahaha i was just going to write that
“Loose” the education? Are you trying to be ironic?
Loose the education?
That’s right the education is on the loose.
That’s Miss South Carolina.
Loose the education you learn? Really?
I am sorry I mean Miss. South Carolina. These two lovely folk (Justin Bieber and Miss South Carolina) make North Americans look rather uneducated, which is not a good thing because these were societies that were admired.
Yeah, because two people are representative of 528 million people to the rest of the world.
He was making fun of you because you spelled “lose” wrong. Your argument sounds silly… quit while your ahead
quit while _you’re_ ahead
quit while you are a head
Why doesn’t everyone get a life!! Seriously people…..it was a clear case of misunderstood accent!! End of story!! PULEZZZE let it go and move on to the important issues of the world!!
Dear moron: HE SHOWED HIM THE CARD.
Please play in traffic.
he looked at the work, a New Zealand accent doesn’t change the word German that much….and why are you telling people to move on to more important issues if you are posting comments on the vide0
No, because the Kiwi showed him the card. You’re wrong, I’m right, Justin Bieber, is wrong and a fag. Period.
How quick people are to jump on the bandwagon and kick someone. Jealousy is rife in the land of Bieber is it not?? This is how to blow something out of proportion and it is what the haters and wannabe’s do so well! One word for you all…PATHETIC!!
I’d be mad too if I were as hopelessly retarded as you.
You are all morons. Of course the kid knows what the word ‘German’ means, he just doesn’t understand this idiotic question;
“Are you German for basketball”.
No intelligent person would undestand such a stupidly worded question.
Well the guy said, “Is Bieber german for basketball?” I think that’s NOT a stupidly worded question…
Since you seem to have understood the question, it must prove that you are not intelligent
seems like the only stupid person here is you parma, learn english then act smart
+1 Name, I don’t see how understanding something proves you’re not intelligent, what kind of logic is that lol
You both fail to see what I assume is sarcasm.
NO, because he said, and I quote: “German? I don’t know what that means”
I think the interviewer was the idiot in this case not Beiber. I am certainly not a fan but the kid said nothing wrong. ‘Are you german for basketball?’, what the hell does that even mean????? please some one tell me
WTF? How do you even regulate breathing when you are so obviously deficient as a human being.
“Is BIEBER German for basketball” was the question.
How the fuck else are you supposed to ask what a word is in another language?!?
“Is BIEBER German for basketball” may have been the question, BUT THAT WAS NEVER ASKED. How do you post on the internet with so tenuous an attention span? What he did ask which is “Justin, uh, Bieber, sorry, is German for basketball, true or false?” He constructed the sentence incorrectly, and the question was understood to be “Is German for Basketball?” which does not make sense.
Oh my god, Name. Please go whine about this to your 7th grade home-room teacher tomorrow.
He was shown the card. So even if he understood what German means, he obviosly can’t construct proper grammar.
It would have been much more understandable had he said, “Does Bieber mean basketball in German?” Even I had no clue what he was talking about.
stupid question…like we all speak fluent German to associate basketball with this kids last name…like it’s an association that matters and or is relevant to his industry…? stupid question stupid answer. full stop
I could understand confusion relative to the guy’s kiwi (New Zealander) accent, but the host showed him IN PRINT the word German, and it appeared he was still lost. The original question is, “Bieber is German for basketball, true or falsë”? Would it have made any more or less sense if he’d asked “Uno is Spanish for one, true or false”? In his defense (do I have to?) he is 16 and being put on the spot, but after he is shown the question in print you’d think the fog would clear a bit, and the lights would at least flicker.
WHAT DOES, ARE YOU GERMAN FOR BASKETBALL MEANS ANYWAY???
ME FIAL ENGRISH?@ THAT UN POSSIBLE
im not a fan… but that was cute.
Plenty of people here realise that the term ‘German’ is confusing because Bieber obviously thought it was slang. The funny thing is all the people who have commented that he is stupid, when it is clear that they are the ones who haven’t been able to understand where the misconception has come from!
There can be no misconception. He was shown the card in print
You’re seriously telling me that “IS “BIEBER” GERMAN FOR BASKETBALL” is a confusing question?
Is bibliotheque French for library?
Is gato Spanish for cat?
The question can’t really get much more plain than that.
I can’t believe the level of idiocy going on here. What an embarrassment to society.
the dude did mess the question up to begin with… it is a little hard to follow, unless you watch it more than once.
A misconception is you.
I don’t like this kid but I can understand how he got confused. The host uses Justins first name then his last name as part of the question. The host then only repeats is German for basketball.
I’m German and I speak English quite well, even can read & write a bit in English, too!
So I have to agree the question posed to the kid (by the way what does this cute fellow do other then having young girls around him … have to ask my teenage daughter hhhmmm) “is Bieber German for basketball” makes little sense as this does not constitute correct use of the English language, if the question was meant to be: “Is the German meaning of the name >Bieber< basketball?" Well it's not and by the way – why not ask him "do you know the German meaning of your name? … but then who cares about the name or the boy???
Obviously you don’t speak English NEARLY as well as you had thought.
The question is valid and quite common.
Is “Bieber” German for “Basketball.”
It was a joke meant to test the intelligence of the damn kid, whom subsequently had proven that he has the mental constitution of a gnat. Though I fear that perhaps you and many others here are not far behind.
where do you live that this is a “common” question…
We used to get asked that all the time on the streets where I grew up.
Is Bieber German for basketball?
Yeah man, i love basketball!
>if the question was meant to be: “Is the German meaning of the name ‘Bieber’ basketball?”
Good for you to be able to read and speak in (proper) English, but no one talks like that (especially a 16 year old); it is far too formal to be used in the everyday life of anyone who isn’t an English Professor. Not to mention this is an age where people shorten words and phrases in order to get their message out faster (especially his generation). If you can not understand the /statement/ “‘Bieber’ is German for basketball” followed by the question “True or false?”, you have problems unrelated to understanding sentence structure. This is the very kind of wording you might find written on tests throughout elementary school. It makes all the sense in the world, if you only have some common sense in return. He understands the question, he just doesn’t understand what the word “German” means because apparently no one uses it America.
LOL, not only is he ghey, he’s dumb as a box of rocks to boot! LOL
Here’s the confusion: he thought he was saying the equivalent of “You is German for basketball” a la “You is crazy for basketball”
“We don’t say that in America”.
… go to hell, little twerp. Or, better yet, go back to school.
My apologies from America to Germany.
I WEE TA DID. BUTT MIE HARE SHURE LUCKS PRITY!
Especially with that accent. I Googled to find out who Justin Bieber is. I expect his problem though was not understanding the accent of the guy asking the question – it messed him up so that when the pronunciation of that word was more American, the sentence didn’t make sense.
“We don’t say that in America.”
The sad part is, he’s not American, he’s from Ontario, Canada.
maybe he meant the continent
Wheather he meant the continent or not, he still said it is not said in America. Continent or not, Bieber is retarded
He understood it to mean “Bieber is German for basketball” like “Crazy for basketball” or “Hot for basketball”…. that is why he says “I like basketball if that is what you are asking”. Still daft, but cut the kid some slack, he was probably tired.
I like how he says, “we don’t say that in America.”I guess he’s already forgotten that he’s Canadian!
Is Canada no longer in North America?
Look Canada, either claim him or don’t, just stop flip-flopping on the issue
Everyone on here that’s said he misunderstood what the host said to him, please, off yourselves for the sake of humanity. The host asks him if his name is German for basketball, not “Are you German for basketball?”. If you wanted to know what something meant in Spanish, you would ask, “Is Spanish for ?”, or at least any normal, everyday person would. No one walks around talking like what was mentioned above, which I suppose would be the correct wording for the question: “Is the German meaning of the name >Bieber< basketball?", instead we all use simplified language. Hell, I know I don't talk half as well as I type, but I do know I understand what I'm asked unlike some over-commercialized waste of a human being who somehow gets more attention and devotion than the people in the service industry, who do a lot more for everyone than he ever would, those in the peace corp. and similar organizations, or even those who save your lives.
Wake up and smell the rancid shit that humanity is becoming.
Give him some Brawndo.
This is the decline of civilization.
I can comprehend how he could misunderstand the question, but only if I make the assumption that he is an idiot. The accent barely affected the clarity of the word, and even taking that into account, it takes a minute amount of brain activity to make the jump to “German.” There is simply no other similarly pronounced word which makes any sense in that context. Even disregarding all of that, he was shown the word written down on paper, so I guess it could just be that he is illiterate and not that he doesn’t know the meaning of German.
To all those who are defending him because he is a child, Justin Bieber is 16 years old, so perhaps if he was 10 or more years younger I could cut him some slack. If I met anyone else of that age who did not know what German meant, I would also think him an idiot.
And additionally, anyone who is confused by the meaning of the question “Is Bieber German for basketball?” is right there with him in terms of intelligence.
Well I for one am just totally germin’ for some basketball right now.
And if I don’t get some basketball real quick, everyone around me will be infected.
How does my bf not no wht german is?????
Umm well he couldnt understand what he said he though he said Jewman.
he knows how to count to 10 in German and knows what his Last name means in German… geeze.
Everyone who doesn’t understand in that context what “German” is, must be a one year old. He even looked at the written text! How on EARTH would anybody who is the tiniest, least, smallest bit educated NOT know what the question means?
Wow. What a tool.
Really, who asks that question in the first place? Use a dictionary or something, don’t ask the kid who probably does not know how to speak German, nor probably cares about the origin of his last name.
i woud say “yeah he couldnt understand the question because of the accent”, but the guy showed him the card and unless bieber cant read than there is no reason he couldnt of answered the question unless he cant read which is possible, the kids an idiot he cant read and doesnt know what “german” is LOL
what a tool
Okay I seriously was so confused! I thought the guy was saying that is he german for basketball like german meant something else like he was trying to ask if he liked basketball. I totally didn’t understand that he was saying the name “bieber” means basketball in german. Wow.
So i totally get when Justin was confused about haha. I though i was like totally missing out on something but he just asked the question wierd. especially by messing up and saying Justin first. He knows what German means hahaha.
What’s a jooman?
just another reason to bring him down!
It’s not his fault, he miss understtod the question, he should have been asked, “is bieber nazi for basketball?” Then that the spoiled brat would of understood.
Totally. Now, had he said…
“If you like to serve up Jews with a little barbeque sauce, you call a baskeball a _blank_.”
Then I bet he totally would have gotten it.
WHAT A RETARD!!!!!
I plainly took it as @Name states. The host was asking if the name “Bieber” meant Basketball in German. But I dont think the boy is stupid, but maybe confused and that he may have taken it as what someone else stated, as maybe a slang word for liking basketball. It would be confusing because for one the host messed up by saying Justin and Bieber when asking if it were German for Basket ball then it sounded like he said jewman the first time. If the boy is going to be considered stupid then let it just be because he made a remark about America when he is Canadian. Why be rude in saying anyone is unintelligent at all no matter what nationality or misunderstanding.
Wait! His name’s not “Beaver”? I’ll be damned. What’s a Bieber anyway?
Well, I’m glad you asked, Me.
This is a Bieber!
It’s a German name. Gee… how funny.
well he showed him the card the quesetion was even if the interviewer asked it like a retard an he still didnt get it i hope nazis kill this little dick
I listened to the question once, and wasn’t really sure what he was asking. Then i read the comments and still wasn’t sure what he was asking. Then i listened to the question and finally understood that he was asking if Bieber is the german word for basketball. Im guessing that Justin was confused by the phrasing and possibly the accent as well. (PS, i’m german but have lived in the US for most of my life)
He showed him the writing on the motherfucking card…the accent and phrasing have nothing to do with it at that point. Unless he can’t read, there should be no reason why he didn’t understand the context in which the word “German” was being used.
HAHAHA, way to feed the stereotype that America is retarded lol
Wow, no joke, I know people like that. My brother chris is the sam’=]-poj
I hate this kid.
But, if someone misphrased a question and then repeatedly asked me “Is German for Basketball? True or False” I would honestly have no idea what they were talking about.
Interviewer should have repeated the entire question not half of it.
I dont know what Justin Bieber is :(
How do u not kno who Justin Bieber is?He is the most cutest boy I ever seen before
You only just recently obtained a set of eyeballs, right?
He’s the Vatican’s dream choir boy.
Yes and with a lot of money, and a limo, and a ……
If you didn’t ask my name , I wouldn’t know you were wanting to know my name. I’m serious.
I fault the interviewer for picking the entirely unrelated term “basketball” as the possible translation of his surname. I speak German and have edited scholarly books on the meanings of proper names, and this nonstarter of a question would have thrown me off kilter. The right question would have been, What does the name “Bieber” mean in German? Or at least pick a more plausible translation (or even the actual one!) as the test case.
The point is that Mr. Bieber didn’t have a damn clue as to what the word “German” means…
He thought the word “german” was a slang used in New Zealand. He thought there was another meaning to german. Beiber german for basketball, like Beiber crazy for basketball – something like that. We’ve all done that, and say “Oh, I get it!!!
No. If he was smart he’d know that “Is x the German for x” means German language. If he thought it was NZ slang then he’s still a moron
so tell me UMM.. what is German for basketnall… cuz i dont know what that is..and im A PHD. SO FUCK U
i doubt it
It was a true or false question, to which he should have simply replied “false”. If you don’t know how true or false questions work, it looks like all that book learning didn’t pan out too well for you.
you are in the wrong place.
He said he thought the interviewer said Jewman. Heck now hows that possible when the interviewer just showed him the question hmm? He’s just trying to save face when he obviously doesn’t know what it means.
what a moron
This question is fuckin annoying,Suddenly the word appears,This kid didn’t know how to explain… cause this sentence doesn’t make any sense
Really, he showed him the word “German” how the fuck can you not grasp a language named after the country it comes from.
yeah leave the poor boy alone it took me time to understand what that reporter was talking about…
Then you’re an idiot – just saying. He clearly said German, he barely has an accent and I’m rubbish at understanding accent. If you don’t understand what the SENTENCE means I slit my wrists for the education system
what? German for basketball? wtf does that mean
lol. I think the cue card said Jewman too! Stop picking on him! xD
“Justin…Bieber, sorry…Is “juhmin” for basketball. True or false.”
He makes it sound like when he says German it is a verb.
When a statement is framed like that it sounds like “juhmin” is a verb or a noun and not an adjective. Even when shown the word “German”, he still doesn’t know why it was used as a verb or a noun.
Explanation over and your welcome.
Even if the accent was the problem, any idiot could have figured it out once he was shown the word. Emphasis was placed on “Bieber” – this is basic. If he doesn’t know if “German” was used as a verb or a noun then he’s still a bloody idiot.
Bieber also read the question.
“… is German for… I don’t know what that means.”
Yeah but the kid had the opportunity to read the text anyway: “German”. Although it could be his handwriting, I doubt it in today’s world. Although it was most likely a very easy mistake to make, he should have known the written word and read it correctly! “We don’t have that in America”?! Man. Sold his education for millions. Might be worth it.
He probably misunderstood germin for GERMAN.
some people are idiots. enough said.
I’m not referring to Beiber either.
wow. He is a tard
He doesn’t know what German is even after reading the card? Sad
UrbanPoet is beating off to this.
when i first heard of it? I thought there was some other meaning for the word german… the interviewer is the moron
ummm…no. All you fools are tripping. I understood the question perfectly the first time around. Bieber does not know what ‘German’ is…granted it may be a stupid moment that he had. But still pretty. funny.
I was even confused. The dip shit host makes is sound like “German” Is describing the way Beiber feels about basketball. Poorly worded question made Beiber look bad.
um not as good as this… http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=foEWJT0j-_A
its not that he doesnt know what German is, but when the interviewer says “beiber is german for basketball”, it sounds like a fan is making a statement and the word “german” could be their slang for something else, as in “are you german (crazy) for basketball?”. Sort of how we in America may say “it’s greek to me” when something is incomprehensible or we also use “a new york minute”. I’m sure someone from another country that isn’t familar with our sayings would be confused. For all Bieber knows the word “german” in that sentence could be a saying that they use for something that someone is crazy about or likes alot. Give the kid a break, it’s an easy mistake. Why is this even news?
I thought the same thing when reading the story without watching the video and I was a bit confused by all this and why people were calling him stupid. I went on urban dictionary looking for a slang definition of “german” that I was not aware of. So I say definitely give him a break. “Is your last name german for basketball?” would have been the proper phrasing of the question. Even so, the question shouldn’t have been asked because it’s dumb.
you are all a bunch of fags for defending this little douche
BAHAHAHAHA… hahaha….. omg so much lol!!!!
Oh my god, this is pathetic. Of course the boy knows what German is. He did an interview in Germany, and even counted from 1 to 10 in German. Anyone who doesn’t think he just didn’t understand the poorly phrased question and accent is just being petty.
what an idiot
lol. this is funny. its not the interviewers fault at all. Indeed, the interviewer showed him the question card.
If you can’t read ‘German’ and relate that to Germany then you are an idiot.
Worst of all this kid is Canadian. His response is something I’d expect from an American.
Come on now…give Americans a break. We always get so much flak. Despite what they show in the media, it’s just how we are often portrayed. We’re not all idiots. There are just as many idiots in other countries. They just don’t make headlines.
It’s not that he doesn’t know what German means it’s that he didn’t understand the question. It even took me a while to figure it out, could they have not worded that a little better?
He’s 10 so I won’t blame it on his intelligence nor the fact the guy showed him the cue card.
Good going Beaver!
You’re 15. France -> French, Spain -> Spanish, Germany -> German, Italy -> Italian. You know these things when they’re written out on paper, right? 15!! Either a) Justin is more lost than bloodhound with a head cold, or b) His education is criminally lacking in the extreme. I…am…nonplussed, nay! Vexed!
“We don’t say that in America.” No defense. I don’t what attributes are keeping him off the Darwinian Short List, but I doubt they’re inheritable.
Stupidity: You can’t outbreed it.
You guys who dont understand the question are such dumbass’s. How hard is it? The guy said: True or false, bieber is German for basketball? He even showed him the word! I’m sure the word ‘German” had a capital, meaning it wasnt slang. Who would use that as slang anyway. Anyone who doesnt understand it is just stupid.
what did the question mean? “German for Basketball”? that doesn’t make any sense! >:(
OMG ppl r stupid! Is the word BIEBER the GERMAN word for BASKETBALL. How hard is it, honestly
well, in his defense, i had no idea what that guy was talking about either
typical canadian girl
The article I read was quoted differently. It said they asked, “Are you German for basketball?”I thought German was some word I didn’t know and have spent the last 24 hours trying to work out what it meant and why I’d never heard it. If someone asked me was I German for something, I’d think they meant crazy about it or something. If they asked me if my surname was german for something, then I would know. Under the pressure of an interview, a person can make a mistake, especially if they are alredy woring hard at understanding an accent. You don’t have to be an idiot.
Just so u all know, New Zealanders do NOT use the word German as slang for anything, that sounds stupid.
fuck ya feelings instead of gettin crowned your gettin capped
Hi, Everyone saying “give him a break, I didn’t even understand the question” are idiots. How could you not understand that? Other than maybe you’re all 13 like Beiber. Have you never heard the term “Is vache French for cow” or you could say “What’s the French word for cow?” either phrase works (obvioulsy “vache” and “cow” can be exchanged for any other word in any other language, if you didn’t gather that on your own) . Bumbling idiots here.
He speaks good Kiwi , F###king loser!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hahaha, good kiwi??? LOL
That’s just sad. Isn’t this kid’s grandfather German? If the kid’s 16, why does he sound like a 5 year old girl?
Hah I think this whole debate is ubsurd. So the kid screwed up… You’re telling me you have never had a “blonde moment” in your ENTIRE life nor have you ever accidently misunderstood something? Well then you are a genuis! Good for you. Would like a gold star or a cookie perhaps. The kid Is under a microscope 24/7. Grow up, get a life, and MOVE on.
Go ahead that’s one less cynic in the world
Bieber = Beaver in German
i didn’t know what the guy was saying either, i had to replay it several times before i got he wasn’t asking ‘Justin Beiber, Is German for basketball?’ but rather ‘Justin, is Beiber German for basketball?’
Justin hears this question as,
Justin, Bieber, (as if he is being addressed by the interviewer), (now for the question) “Is German for basketball?”
He repeats the question that he heard multiple times: “Is German for basketball?” I don’t know what the f that means by itself either.
The failing was in the interviewer’s stumbling through the question and phrasing it in a way that Justin thought he was being addressed before asking the question.
The Presenter didnt stumble through it. He said Justin – then when he said the wrong name ie apologized, hence the Bieber, sorry, then he continued with the question. “Justin – Uh Bieber, sorry, is German for basketball, t or f?’ A mistake yes, but still not impossible to understand. Justin then said ‘is what?’, so the presenter repeated ‘Is German for basketball’. STILL not sounding that complicated.
Retard, to not know you even have a German name!! I have met many similarly ignorant US kids
whats next he goina ask who hitler was?
wtf is justin bieber?
well, I dont like J. Bieber, but I think this was misunderstanding, I saw his other video, early video, when he talks stuff about germany and even counts to 10 in german, so it is impossible that he didnt know what german is, and it is really sound like that guy says “jewman”.
Yes it might sound like Jewman with the accent, but he showed the kid the card it was written on too. What, the kid cant read?
Okay just because the interviewer sounded like he was saying JEWMAN, does not me Justin doesn’t know what German is…. that is LUDICROUS. People bashing a 16 yr old kid…..get a life
he was asked several times, and even read it, ur the idiot for defending him, he should be in school, not performing for ppl
if someone asked YOU if you were ‘German’ for basketball, you would look at them like they were crazy. Are you Japanese for soccer? the question doesn’t make sense. what he was trying to ask is does ‘Bieber’ mean ‘basketball’ in the German language. it was confusing, and no one would have understood without an explanation
Prior video of him discussing his German ancestor. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ioa0X93dO8M
Are you stupid i understood perfectly. Words, such as last names, derive from words in different languages debending on what your backround is. I cant belive that anyone wouldnt even know there own last name and where it came from, let alone not no the whole language at all.
No. No, I understood the question just fine. Anyone with the ability to think and comprehend could figure that one out. Maybe it also helps if you’ve ever conversed orally with another human.
The question was “true or false” Watch the whole interview before you make stupid assumptions. Bieber is a retard, face it.
It’s not about how the question was posed (which was easy enough for anyone with half a brain to understand) but how he didn’t understand the word “German.” He read the card and still didn’t know what it mean, then had the balls to say we don’t use that in America, obviously feeling qualified to comment on what words we used.
Did Bieber take “Baby” from these guys, The Public Good? (click the web URL link)
The interveiwer showed him the card. He actually saw the word “German”.
he showed him the word ‘German’ on the card yet he still replied ‘we don’t use that word in America.’ ahhahahahahahaaaaaaaa i don’t care how old he is, that’s hysterical.
LOL he SAID German, himself, and I have an amazing life.
he showed him the freaking card
any 16 years old would know what german means
He read the word. It has nothing to do with the pronunciation.
But Drew showd the stupid kid the SPELLING.. how can u be on justins side? COME ON!! Are you as stupid as the “Beibs”
haha , the interviewer said German, bieber even said German himself… and looked on the card, what a dumb ass kid
…even if he thought he ment “Jewman”, the interviewr let him read the card so clearly he must have seen the word “German”
no, what makes him an idiot is that the interviewer showed him the notecard and he still didn’t know what the guy was talking about
He said it many times and he still didnt understand then went on to make a stupid remark about liking basketball. What an idiot dosent even know what German is that kid should not be paid the money that he is. And he should have to graduate from high school before he can preforme, oh wait he will have hit puberty by then and his career will be over to bad so sad, oh and as a Canadian we are sorry for his being.
but he also showed him the notes he had, justin would have read german, justin is a dumb ass
dumbass he read the card for him so obviously he didnt know what it mean. your prolly like the only adult on this beiber shit, go get a job or go to school
The guy showed him the word and he repeated it. So…
How can you defend this ignorant kid? Maybe he needs to stop taking time to write love songs when he is 14 and actually stay and school and study. Justin Bieber is completely uneducated. “What is German?” Then trying to mock the host and say “we don”t say that in America”. Idiotic.
Your a dumb ass, he is an over popular 2 year old and the guy showed him the card! His music sucks and has no intelligence what so ever.
he even showed him the word so maybe justin cant read now? it would have clearly said German
this is funny ! but i found this video earlyer today whatch it ! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZpaJc7JmTtw
According to this pic he understand it quite well
What a stupid kid… Dont believe that he’s been born, he’s one of “those” americans and by those,i mean stupid xD
he’s actually from canada… soooooo go back to canada biebs.
We don’t want him
Yeah, I can name a whole community of people who wouldn’t need an explanation. Everyone who isn’t retarded. And probably a lot of retarded people. If you don’t know the answer, say “I don’t know”. The question doesn’t ask if HE is German for basketball, it asks if his last name is.
Justin is a Canadian, not an American.
Canada is not in America?
hi am gift y and am 28 yrs old and with much beauty, honest, caring,loving and respectful.am here looking for my soul partner whom i can share the rest of my with and my door is open for any body who is ready foe that.
Canada is not in the USA but it is in America!!
Canada is in NORTH America (the continent). As is the USA which stands for United States of America.
Where are you people from?
English is my first language, I was born in Germany, and my mom is an Aussie (close to Kiwi), and I couldn’t even understand the question.
This is a fail on the interviewer, not the kid
But he showed him the written question on the card!
You don’t understand the question? Whats so hard about “Viva, is German for basketball, true or false”. How could it get any simpler?
Except he said, “Bieber is German for basketball, true or false.”
Aussie is close to Kiwi?
I am Aussie born with a German Father and English is my first language.
Saying “This is a fail on the interviewer” is pretty shit english.
And only a Crackhead would think that Aussie is anything like Kiwi language.
It is closer to England’s English if anything, it’s well known…..you twat.
Justin is a little bitch, Kiwi uses the same spelling as US, and I think you just want to lick his asshole.
We dont actually use the same spelling as Amercia, you DOUCHE.
Mum = Mom
ApologiSe – ApologiZe.
We actually use the same spelling as AUSTRALIA.
Do your homework… Who’s the TWAT now.
yeah.you’re right. it’s the failure of the interviewer, not the kid.
so for the people who guilt Justin.. “Don’t grumble, everyone have his error. Don’t presume that you’re perfect”
George Bush, now Justin, the human race is doomed, DOOMED!
Now staring in a remake of Forrest Gump . . .
“Is German For Basketball” is not even a real question and makes absolutely no sense. Don’t harp on this kid for not understanding. Maybe ask him “what is a German?” and I’m pretty confident he’ll be able to tell you. And he’s Canadian not American…
yo, he said Bieber is German for basketball. True or False?…That is a correct question.
Saying “Are you German for basketball?” suggests German is a verb!
Perhaps if they had asked, “Is your name German for basketball?” it would have made more sense to the young man. The interviewer never asked if “Bieber was German for basketball” -that’s not his fault, however, he didn’t write the questions-all he asked was “Are you German for basketball?” No one phrases sentences like that, if you do you seriously have to go back to English 101.
Ummmmmm… “Is Beiber German for Basketball?” he even showed him on the card. He did ask! Thhhbbbttttttttppptttt!
this video cracked me up but then i watched the singer talk about his German heritage and how his last name means Beaver: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ioa0X93dO8M
he was just confused by the question, prolly the “kiwi accent” like the interviewer said, and then too flustered to comprehend even when it saw it written.
still hilarious but at least the kid does ACTUALLY know about his heritage and what his last name means.
I cant believe you people are defending him. I could understand the question just fine. A New Zealand accent is not that difficult to understand. And besides, he showed him the question written down on the card. This kid is a moron.
While understanding the question was quite difficult, to the interviewers credit, he showed him the question on the card and he still didn’t get it…..Justin FAIL, I mean come on, we don’t say that in America…WTF, and on top of that he’s a Canadian
Canada is part of America
It is not typically considered part of America, as “America” (when spoken) generally means “The United States of America”. If you want to use America as loosely as you are trying to, then Mexico is also part of America. Which everyone knows is not considered to be the case.
On top of that, with that loose of a definition you can say that Columbia, Chilé, and everything else in South America is also considered part of the term America.
Definitely inside the US, America specifically refers to the United States of America, not Canada, and not the United States of Mexico.
thats my point. if you read the wiki entry(not sure if it is accurate or not, maybe some Europeans could help me out) people in other countries do actually use the term ‘America’ to refer to the western continents. so it is possible, since he was in another country(i assume), he was using their terminology.
I’m Canadian, i don’t call my country America, but it is technically correct. just because the states couldn’t think of an original name doesn’t mean they get dibs on the word forever.
I can’t believe some of you guys are coming down so hard on this kid, i don’t know who is is, other than some teen star who apparently makes terrible music, but he could be the most hated person on the planet to me and i’d still have to conclude it was a simple mistake. some of you seem to be able to decipher what the interviewer is saying no problem, some of us cannot. it doesn’t make us stupid.
and yeah, he took a quick glance at the cue card, but by that point he had clearly already decided that the word that didn’t make sense was ‘German’ and therefore probably didn’t reread the entire question.
the kid could be an complete moron for all i know, but don’t point to this as evidence.
he is a child after all….children dont always know everything (I think)
People he was asking “bieber is German for basketball, true or false.” Its not complicated, Justin Bieber is just a retard.
Justin Bieber is an idiot. Dont try and defend his stupidity. Its not hard its a very simple question!
he’s not an idiot, moron or stupid or anything !!
get it ?
how will he know that he’s last name means basketball or something?
he doesnt live in germany anyway !!
you’re a douche. you dont have to live in germany, to know what “german” is. (its a language, btw!). if he had any interest in his own family, he would at least know where his ancestors are from. i know what an american is. even if i’ve never lived there. wtf?
He makes it sound like ‘german’ is slang, meaning nuts, or love….Like, are you nuts for a game of basketball? Are you german for basketball? Not, Is your name german for basketball
Children don’t always know everything, and neither do adults. He obviously did not understand the question, he seems to be a bright kid. The interviewer has a thick accent, pretty easy to misunderstand.
you people probably dont know thousand of things and are talking like you are all just perfect and inteligente….go find something to do! and for the records CANADA IS AMERICA!
NO ONE in Canada calls us America. No one. Sounds like yet another fallacy of an American, believing we`re part of their country, that the US won the war of 1812 *snort* and, oh yeah, we have snow 365 days of the year. Thanks for playing!
I think he meant North America (as that was a topic above) It should be pretty well established that Canada is its own country.
The hesitation after the interviewer says his name is what’s throwing him off, obviously. It sounds like the question is “Is German for basketball?” He never repeat the full question, instead just prolongs the confusion. Surely the kid knows what “German” means.
It was question!Fail.
Apparently he’s been in Germany and can count to ten in German:
so what if he can count to 10 in German that doesn’t make him smart
hey retards…i think the interviewer meant for the question is that … bieber is a german term for basketball. …… listen to it closely… listen to the intonation of the question… you twits… i am not defending bieber but he has the right to get cofused .. even i got cofused when i first heard the question…..
I feel like no one understands what the hell actually transpired here but me. I mean, it’s not too hard to figure out. Hey, I LOVE to make fun of the Biebs as much as the next guy, but it was clearly the interviewer’s fault for the confusion on the question. He says “Justin… Bieber, sorry. Is German for basketball. True or False?” It sounded like he was just addressing him, and then proceeded to ask “Is German for basketball?” If it were me, I’d be like “WTF?” too. Even when the interviewer repeated the question, he only said “Is German for basketball,” not the full “Bieber is German for basketball: True or False?” Biebs just thought he was asking him whether he liked basketball or not. Hey, I still think he’s a fag but you can’t rip on the kid for a dumb question.
NO ONE IN CANADA THINKS OF IT AS AMERICA. America is USA to us, as well as those from the US. USA residents are called AMERICANS here. Considering I live about two hours from his home town, it`s safe to say he`s a moron. Also, he read the card. His last name is Germanic in sound and structure, hence the question. So maybe he`s illiterate and ignorant too
Also, geniuses, Justin doesn`t say he doesn`t get the question, he specifically asks what German is, even after reading the word.
Scroll to the Canada subheading, where it notes that Canadians actually tend to RESENT being referred to by ‘American’ (in spite of previously posted definitions’ because it is assumed to refer to the US and being from there. There’s no way a 16 year-old kid would be using the archaic sense of the term. I’ve never even heard a teacher say that Canada is America – just noting that we fall in the continent of North America.
well I actually am Canadian and i don’t resent it at all, nor do i know of anyone who does. the point is other countries around the world apparently use the term ‘America’ to refer to the western continents as a whole, so maybe Justin is just a little more multi-cultural than we are.
even if he’s an idiot it’s unlikely he forgot which country he was from. use a little common sense people, nobody is as stupid as you are assuming this kid is.
Frankly speaking, if this child is incapable of understanding the word “German,” he needs to seriously reevaluate what he’s doing with his life and redirect his focus more toward his schooling and education.
English is my second language and even I understood what the man was asking of him.
His name is German. He has discussed his German heritage in previous interviews, and there is a video of him counting to 10 in Germany. Its clear that he didn’t understand the question.
well smartass, then explain why he asked “whats german??”
i don’t get what’s so difficult about understanding the question. He asked if his last name was German for basketball true or false? He didn’t understand the world “German” and was then he showed him the word “German”! stupid ass kids..get back in school!
I can’t believe you guys are arguing so much over it and trying to defend his stupidity.
It’s simple. He is a 16 yr old teenager, who has had the worst educational upbringing that even when shown the card with the text clearly written he still has no idea what the word, ‘German’ means. I work with children, and even 5 yr olds know what German means.
If he is a role model to every 10-17 yr old out there with an education like that then God help us all…Oh, and has his balls dropped yet? I’m still waiting for that day to arrive.
>Oh, and has his balls dropped yet? I’m still waiting for that day to arrive.
hey justin or w.e u call urself.. how bout u do us all a favor and start doin smthin with ur life rather than sounding retarded on live tv. thanks
okay for anyone saying the question is stated incorrectly:
bieber is german for basketball – true or false
is the equivalent to saying
bleu is french for blue
uno is spanish for one
there is nothing wrong with the statement. so stop defending him with the japanese for soccer thing
I found a full interview and behind the scenes at
the freak said he doesn’t no what the word means
Check out this video, JB explains himself! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=foEWJT0j-_A
I think you should all do a search on youtube for Justin Bieber German interview, from about a year ago. He Can count to 10 in German and says his Grandad is German and that his surname means Beaver. Pretty sure he knows what German is.
even though i assume most of the people here that don’t seem to get how the question could be misunderstood are just trolls, the thought that maybe a few of you aren’t makes me feel much better about myself. thanks internet!
miley cyrus is selling braclests
anyone who tries to defend the bieber girl is probably mentally challenged as well.
OMG HES A BOY NOT A GIRL. YOUR THE MENTALLY CHANNANGED ONE
case in point. i needn’t explain further.
Justin anyone would know what “German” means.
This is Bull-Shark if you don’t know what german means.
P.S. LEARN YOUR ENGLISH MENTALLY CHALLENGED PERSON!!
Justin has been to Germany, has been interviewed on German television by a German announcer and can speak some German himself. This clip just shows that ignorant people will always assume the worst about someone and even consider the case “proved” in circumstances where it is certainly not.
Don´t miss it!
Holy crap this guy just might be retarded…the prettier the dumber they say
You idiot he said they were similar not the same you fuckin fag!!!!!!!!!!
OMG ITS YOU GUYS ARE THE ONES WHO ARE IDIOTS. ITS SOO LIKE WEIRD IF PEOPLE DOESN’T KNOW WHAT GERMAN MEANS! AND, LIKE.. UH… THAT’S SO NOT LOGIC FOR JUSTIN BIEBER ! REALLY, I’M NOT BACKING HIM UP OR SOMETHING. ITS ABOUT LOGIC. DUHH STUPID PEOPLE
“Bieber is German for basketball.” is a statement. The question was “True or False?”. The interviewer was asking for a one word reply to the statement, and whether Justin Bieber believed this statement was in fact true or false. He certainly was not asking “Justin, are YOU German for basketball?”- what a ridiculous leap!
To credit the interviewer who did not intend to insult or demean Justin Bieber, once he realised he had exposed an ignorance in this instance, he attempted to laugh it off as a misunderstanding or an “accent” issue. He showed him the card to save him from further embarrassment – to redeem himself.
Justin simply DID NOT understand, was flustered, or embarrassed (jet lagged for goodness sake). Is he stupid? Is chicken the same as tuna? Perhaps even “celebrities” can suffer stage fright, especially at 16 years of age.
Let it go.
wat de hell!
It is more then obvious that he misunderstood the interviewer, besides the fact that he repeats the word wrong and barely glances at the card which everyone is pointing to as “evidence”, NO ONE can not know what “German” is. Especially someone who has german heritage, can count to 10 in german, and has BEEN to Germany. He has even told people what his name really means in german. Its “beaver”.
Speaking of beavers, for those of you complaining that hes a bad representation of America, I highly doubt that he “forgot” he was Canadian, seeing as how he tells people how proud he is of where he comes from on a regular basis.
The country below Canada is not “America” its the USA. “America” is the term belonging to two different continents, one of which he hails from. Perhaps its YOU that needs an education.
And lastly, the fact that he’s a sixteen year old boy is more then worth a mention. Yeah, he’s a teenager, he should know his countries. But your an adult are you not? Aren’t adults always complaining about kids and there gossip? Wouldn’t you tell your kid “don’t pick on that boy bobby, just because he’s not as smart as you doesn’t give you the right to make him feel bad about himself”. You blame all the violence in kids on there bullying each other, they have low self esteem and bully to make themselves feel better. What’s your excuse? What gives you, and every other professional media outlet, the right to attack this boy, who has yet to present himself as anything but polite and sarcastically humorous?
Regardless of your feelings on his music, SOMEONE out there likes him, and as long as he’s making a few people happy, why complain about him?
if your so worried about children’s intelligence, why not write an article on the faults of the education system which are hurting kids in the first place, instead of wasting your time complaining about how kids are already stupid?
Its comical really, the way society deals with its youth. You’d rather complain then do anything to help them.
Carry on ranting about kids and there “cyber bullying”, its not like your taking part in it, thats for sure.
Just keep on making this kid feel like dirt, maybe he’ll kill himself and then you’ll REALLY have something to write about.
Ohh Comeon People! Justin Bieber does know what German is! Just get over it! He is smart, not like some people who don’t believe it!!!!
You Are A Bloody Docuhce! Just Bag Him and get over him.
uhhhh well obviously he doesn’t know what german is….did you even watch the video?
Oh yeah, he’s REAL smart, i mean, it’s not like Germany have EVER done anything particularly note-worthy throughout history or nothing…..
NOT DONE ANYTHING NOTABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU STUPID? OR JUST PLAIN ARROGANT.
note the sarcasm …..
Name said May 11, 2010
lol, this person is dumb.
Or just plain arrogant? LOL…nice. I love when people make themselves look stupid when trying to insult another persons intelligence.
you. are. S.T.U.P.I.D.
you and justin bieber would make a great couple.
lol ur sarcasm detector is outdated
Maybe Justin can help you with your English? You’re on about the same level.
your even more stupid than him cause germany was world famous for being controlled by one of the most powerful tirant in the world adolf hitler. and not only that but was partially the country who began world war 2 which is the most devastating event in human history you piece of ignorant crap!
First of all-he was being sarcastic. second of all-you misspelled tyrant. third of all-justin bieber DOES NOT know what German is. Fourth of all-he was BEING FUCKING SARCASTIC. jesus christ.
He may be smarter than you, but that doesn’t make him smart.
nice comment. thumbs up :D
A) He read the card and still didn’t know what it mean’t. B) Maybe he does know but he is still a twat. C)”He is smart, not like some people who don’t believe it!!!!” makes no sense.
Justin is a stupid, LITTLE, girly-boy
wtf? he’s a complete idiot, what are you talking about!?
I love the way the presenter reacts: Yeah.. why not?
I don’t think that’s fair. I have an English degree. With a Spanish minor. I listened to that question five times and didn’t get what he was asking. You can’t struggle with the kid’s name, have THAT be the prefix to the question, and then when the kid says, “What?” only repeat the last half of the question. That’s my biggest pet peeve! If I say “What?” that means I DIDN’T HEAR YOU. Not, “What was the very last thing you said?” What a weird question anyway. “Is Janet Jackson French for Television?” WHAT? Weird.
Thats how people ask true or false questions. Maybe Justin Bieber is just def in one ear and didn’t hear what was being asked at first. Then again the guy still showed him the card.
Tiny LITTLE pea-brained Justine didn’t just “misunderstand” the accent. She READ the question straight off the card and still did not know the meaning of German. What a dumb, little pathetic punk.
That doesn’t give Justin Bieber an excuse for being a total fucktard the interviewer showed him the paper it’s not his fault for having a British accent
The interviewer was from New Zealand. I agree with the rest of your comment though.
shut up. he is obviously ignorant and doesnt care about anything besides his “first love”. kids an idiot
face it. He is stupid, he even read the word. Get over it Bieber fans and addics. The kids f- ing brainless -_-
It maybe because of the presentors accent or that bieber is a stupid dick.. i’m going with him being a stupid dick.. he even read the card out!! COME ON!!
so…. does anyone think he has any idea what World War 2 was either? How about the holocaust? No? Eh, some people’s kids…
To the person with an english degree…i understand you may not get the kiwi accent…fair enough. But he even let the stupid child READ the bloody question…So if you look at the word ‘german’ and still don’t know what he is talking about, I think it’s time you quit your stupid and lame singing career and head off back to school.
Another example of the geographical ignorance of Americans. And to think, millions of girls look up to him. Pop culture sucks serious balls at times.
He is Canadian, don’t blame america
Let’s go to the facts: He is stupid (for not knowing what German is), but even so he managed to become rich at such an early age. Good for him.
note the sarcasm…
Hi Justin u r not dum ok! but u r so hot .
Shut the f***k up
shut the fuck up. you’re just as dumb as him… and learn to spell.
Hi Justin Bieber u r so hot and smart to me and your fans my comment is would u lik girl oh r 10, and 11. And girl oh have pretty eyes and funny YES or NO!bye
wtf are you talking about dumbass?
God damnit. You fucking dumbass.
the above is the stupidest comment ever posted on the internet
his last name doesn’t mean basketball in german.
basketball in german is basketball.
I can speak and read both french and english pretty well and i couldn’t understand the guy either. the thing that most people are not understanding though is that he did not ask the complete question when he repeated it. he just kept saying ‘Is German for basketball?’ which makes no fucking sense. when he read the card, he probably assumed the question was phrased like this Justin Bieber: Is German for basketball? note the colon, it separates the subject from the actual question. now i’m NOT saying that is how it was actually presented on the card, but Justin, assuming this to be the case, would have likely SKIPPED OVER HIS NAME(he already knows his name, why would he need to reread that?) to get to the question. so the question would be confirmed as ‘Is German for basketball?’
he should have understood(probably did) that the question was nonsense, and if he were in a test situation where it actually mattered and his time wasn’t so limited, he would have probably taken a little more time to figure it out. you want to call him an idiot for speeding through the question or for having a brain fart, or any other reason? go ahead. in this particular instance though, just in this one case, i simply don’t think it’s logical to assume he is unaware of the word ‘German’.
In a way, he is a lot like a lot of you: he made an assumption based on incomplete information and was wrong. he made a mistake. he’s not a genius. but misunderstanding a situation does not make you an idiot. if you really feel the need to gloat over the fact that you are smarter than a FOURTEEN year old because you understand one more word than they do, go ahead, but it really doesn’t shine a good like on your personality or your intelligence. i’m not calling you stupid, i don’t know you. but when you make rash assumptions like this based only on your dislike of the person in question, you appear ignorant. just like justin.
IM FUCKING FOURTEEN AND I UNDERSTOOD THE FUCKING QUESTION. FACE IT BIEBER FANS. HE IS A FUCKING DUMBASS.
wow, I just read that and it totally changed my perspective on the fact that justin bieber is an idiot! you are so right (:……………………………………….NOT
Interviewer: German, German, German. Here look at the word. German.
Justin: I don’t know what that means. We don’t say that in America (haha as though it’s Kiwi slang).
I think that’s pretty clear.
Justin-”German? what’s German”
“You know, German. Here.” (SHOWS HIM THE FUCKING WORD WRITTEN ON A PIECE OF PAPER)
Justin-”We don’t say that in America”
HOW THE FUCK ARE WE ASSUMING THAT HE DIDNT KNOW WHAT IT MEANT?
Maybe he can’t read?
I’m sorry, but I’ Brazilian and even I managed to understand the question.
The question was “Is Beiber German for Basketball.” I hate the little prick but this isn’t his fault. The question wasn’t do you know what German is. The guy asked the question and when the little snot said what and was confused, the host only repeated the end of the question. I watched it three times before I realized “is german for basketball?” wasn’t the whole question. He just didn’t understand the host. If anything the host is a moron for not picking up on the fact that guy didn’t understand the question not that he didn’t know what German or Germany was
Justin-”German? what’s German”
“You know, German. Here.” (SHOWS HIM THE FUCKING WORD WRITTEN ON A PIECE OF PAPER)
Justin-”We don’t say that in America
Maybe the question was difficult to understand, but I got it the first time and that’s not the issue. He repeatedly asked what “German” meant, and after seeing written down assumed it was a slang word he didn’t know.
What a chuzzlewood
Streck aus deinem heißen gelockten Schwanz
our you stupit thets not inglish
Mach es sehr schnell, Rein und raus. Bis es spritzt feur! Aber beklecker nicht das Sofa!
So let me get this straight. He can sing but writes shitty music. He doesn’t know what German means. That equal dumbshit. That is what happens to famous people. They think that just cuz they are in hollywood they don’t have to learn. They are still people and this retard needs to go back to the first grade.
i hate his stupid face. fuckin horse mouth, big lipped, shithead.
gud then i have it
Justin Biebs should stick to singing like a little girl.

Give him a break guys, he just learned the word Baby recently; it’ll be a while until he knows what German means.
can sombodi tell me what girmin is and what it does with JB?
an yes e mu baay
^^ blakeyishoewtlike JB you have to be kidding me. its unbelievable how you talk, and i know your probably someone who is making fun of how stupid justin is. If so, your cool. if not,fuck you
Agreed, Blake whatever, I really hope you r joking.
He is really dumb and he is 16 year old (i think)
he is dummer than his microphone
Maybe he doesn’t know how to spell the word German, hence couldn’t figure what the guy was talking about. Furthermore the question was out of context and that guy’s accent sucked! Don’t get me wrong, I am not a fan, but sometimes people just don’t understand! I live in Australia and still find difficult to understand Kiwis. I worked with a Kiwi and ever time she said pen, I would understand pin. Happily enough I know how to spell both words lol.
well maybe all he meant was that in america u dont say that his last name is basketball…or mayb he’s jus that…well ya im confused…i guess not all celebrities r smart…
tro boss goss justin bieber jtm i love you justin
mozart, who was a real prodigy, could have ended up, say, not knowing what english or spanish was
Not! Because W. A. Mozart was an actual Genius, whose genius expressed itself [Mozart expressed himself] mostly, not even exclusively, in musick.
WHETHER OR NOT Justin Bieber knows what German means, is irrelevant. It has obviously been brought to his attention. The video is not going anywhere so people will have to decide for themselves. What intrigues me is “Name”. Why are you so determined to defend JB? My guess is you’re some tech-media nerd getting paid by Island records to keep an image clean. You and 20 other “Names” are probably taking shifts scouring Google as I type, refuting any negative comments made that might harm this little guy’s precious image. (Whom not so little guys are buying their distant relatives beachfront property in Ft. Lauderdale thanks to their elaborate portrayal of a 16 year old moptop the girlies are gaga for.) This story has already told itself a thousand times over. Its amazing how the evolution of technology has created this phenomena. An hour ago, JB ran into a glass door in Germany. I’m sure his people are already all over it. Watch the video, watch how the people around him react, watch how he has to explain himself, and watch a blog JUST like this one will magically appear. What happens when this kid gets sick of the fishbowl he lives in? They throw that contract he and his mommy signed in his face. Don’t worry, they’ll (the ones who have their bankers’ secretary sign his checks) squeeze him for all he’s got and eventually it will be a battle between his passion for music and how badly he wants to be true to his God given talent. They want him to sing and act but we get sick of it within weeks so they try to outdo themselves over and over again- e.g. lil wayne and his FLOP of a guitar. In my opinion he would be better off on youtube with billions of viewers playing and singing the music HE wrote for US. Instead, every zit on this kid’s face can be quantified in terms of potential revenue. They just shove the shit down our throats! Long story short, some guy found a diamond on youtube and had the resources to flip it. Its was never about the music. Exploitation architects are nothing new. So.. what music from today will people listen to in 500 years? I hope Mr. Bieber can explore that question with all of his heart and soul.

Im sorry to be off the subject here, but how can an Australian not understand a NZ accent? So many NZers live over there, should be used to it by now. As for thinking someone is saying Pin when theyre saying Pen…..dumbass. Seriously.
so wait…who’s arguing what??i just tried to read through all of the comments and i got most of them…but then it just got way off track when we starting talking about ignorance and shit like that lol
i love jb :)))) iloveuuuuu
i love ;]]]]]]]]]] iloveuuuu
i love ;]]]]]]] iloveuuuu
ur stupid so shut up ahole justins smart and ur aren’t
Goddamnit, dont you just feel bad about how stupid you are? “ur aren’t”? every single person who has ever spoken the English language is rolling in their fucking Grave. Its fine if u like his music, but the kid doesn’t fuckin know what German means. that’s SAD. go learn something.
He clearly did not know what “German” meant. And for all those defending him, the host even showed him the card which it was written on! How the hell does he even write music if he can’t even read? Wow.
I would say that this little faggot could suck my cock but I dunno, he might suck it right off or something. Oh excuse me, SHE
And all those little 8 years can’t be fought with, because if you don’t like HER, fangirls will say you are “jelluzz” of her.
IF YOU ARE A 8 YR OLD FEMALE, GO GET BUTTFUCKED BY YOUR FATHERS, MAYBE YOU’LL LEARN SOMETHING. More than you’ll learn by listening to this fuckhole anyway.
Maybe, if you can ever learn to write in proper English, your posts will have the impact you so desperately seem to want them to have???
Does your mommy know you’re posting nasty things on the internet when you should be doing your homework?
I hope you understand how rude that is.
Telling little 8 year old girls to do that just for liking him.
ya know wat u r jealous of him cause if u werent u wouldnt be posting
Lern 2 english
well why would u post! ur JEALOUS!!!
lmao he is suck a douche bag pmsl
this comment made me chuckle
wow….u r so low….admin of the page should at least do something about this kind of filthy ‘pervert’ comment. such a disgrace to the man kind. you…yes you ‘name’ who hide behind anonymity just like who you really are…were sadly once a child too…so please…thanks you .
That is INCREDIBLY sad. Really, I can’t even be mad about it. I just feel bad for the kid; that’s so pathetic. He officially knows less than I did when I was in Kindergarten… oh, snap, that’s German. He probably doesn’t know what that is either.
It proves, some Americans are such douches. He probably is one of those people who think Africa is one country instead of a continent. Eeish kabeesh
You of course mean North Americans being as how he is Canadian, right?
He says in the interview “We” in America dont use that word. But yeah- hes a kid from Canada who was groomed, taught to sing taught to walk taught to think taught to breathe, but yeah- he still has a kindergarten education. Alles verganglich is nur eine gleichneis! ( means: he’ll be flapping around in a puddle of gimp cum by then end of 2012 )
well why would u post! ur JEALOUS
Hes a Canadian. And coming from someone who’s name means “presence of God” its probably not very nice to call people douches :)
Sorry kid, I laughed when you said “I don’t know what that means, we don’t say that in America.”
Kudos to the presenter who handled himself professionally from start to finish.
Awww, haha funny :D :) ur jst funny boy haha im laughing seriously ur cute :D
i FREAKING <3 JUSTIN BIEBER THAT IS ALL I HAVE TO SAY!!!!
i FREAKING know you are an idiot who buys whatever and whoever the media companies tell you to buy and the fact that you are so emotionally engaged is pathetic. Hes some singer with a dick shaped head- stop acting like its the second coming! He sings other peoples songs, has a bad haircut, and if he wasnt famous YOU WOULDNT THINK HE WAS SPECIAL YOU STUPID MONSTER- STAY IN SCHOOL AND GROW OUR OF THIS THAT IS ALL I HAVE TO SAY!!!!
JUSTIN BIEBER IS FREAKING HOT I <3 HIM THAT IS ALL I HAVE TO SAY!
I’m not a fan of Justin Bieber, however I myself was a little confused over the phrasing of the question. It took me a second viewing to understand what he was asking. I can understand the kid’s confusion.
if you dont no wat germen is its alright b cause you can learn
yeah, if you are an idiot and has no BASIC KNOWLEADGE OF THE FUCKING WORLD then you can become confused, but of course almost everyone defends him because hes a TEEN STAR, like thats an excuse for being retard…
If he was a dog one would take him out and shot him dead out of pity.
okay so what hes naturally blonde who cares besides i bet u guys dont know half the stuff he does so lay off ur just soooo jealous of him lots of people love him guess wat im german and im not making a big deal of it so just leave him alone
I am not a fan of Justin Bieber, And how would he know??? He grew up in Canada, They dont know our ways… like we dont know their ways… And no that isnt the reason why people hate Justin Bieber btw with the person who said that 8 year old girls who like him should do that? Firstly thats wrong btw… and second of all you just plain have anger issues…. I am German I am almost full blooded, But guess what… I DONT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT GERMANY! I cant even speak one simple word in German Language… But I’m still almost full blooded, Just because he doesnt know this doesnt make him dumb… Now I ain’t that kind of person who goes crazy over celebrities when i meet them, And I dont like Justin Bieber that much, And I am sure that everybody deserves some respect and dignigty in their life, And I posifficully mean those people who are always talking about how gay, and idiotic he is, We all make mistakes, and we all ain’t perfect, This world would be completely creepy if we’re all perfect… And Yeah he has a high voice, Who Cares????? Occasionally that happens… And nobody really is Jealous thats just what people say and that rumor been going around for years, When really this celebritiy girl obsessing thing been going on for decades. You dont HAVE to like him, And you dont HAVE to hate him… You can dislike him, or you can love him… But just think of how you would feel next time you talk about Justin Bieber real rudely, The poor kid probably cant sleep at night the way he is always getting pounded on… He must be a saint if that doesnt bother him once in awhile.
Problem is, only an idiot wouldn’t know what the word GERMAN means
i am canadain so get ur fucking facts straight dumbass dont judge us all cuz we have one fucking tranny
I HATE Justin Bieber and thats my choice I don’t see how girls say they “love him” when half of them probably don’t know what its like to love them like really. you haven’to met him and probably never will. so don’t obsess over it. hes a guy BIG FUCCKING WHOOP. I don’t care. and for those “obsessed” enough to call others jealous just because they dont like him. Your’re idiots :D
Actually, and personally I dislike him as well, Most people who do hate on him, probably are jealous… it’s simple, a fare amount of the female populous does in fact obsess over him, which leads most guys to hate him since he gets obsessed over by a large amount of the girls… personally I just dislike him because I don’t care for his music.
I agree with amber :D
I agreee w/ Both, Justin Bieber dsnt deserve ta b tlked bout lyk dat, nd for da ppl who r “obessesed” w/ him I agree w/ Amber, he iz just a guy lyk all others, da way some of u go by iht u could obesessed ovr evry dude thre is n da wrld, if da so called Justin Bieber wasnt da case.
*Hates Justin* FREE WORLD-NESS :D
Justin Beiber is a retard, and I hate him but unfortunately he does know what Germany is. :( In an interview before this he talked about Germany.
However he is still totally over rated, and I can not understand the devotion some people have to him. If you want another funny video look up justin beiber and the revolving door :)
So apparently he does know what German means, there’s a video of him counting to 10 in German from a year before this interview.
most retarted overated sheman of the decade justin bever
justin stinks of his rubish songs
Seriously!!!!!!!!!!????!!!!!! How do people not know what German is???????? Its sooooooooooo INSANE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I MEAN…HES A “FAMOUS” dude….HE SHOULD BE SMARTER THAN THAT..BEING 16!!!!!!!!! Im younger than Bieber and I know what it is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
wow guys, I spent a year in Canada and people never had a problem understanding my Newzealand accent. Face the facts, this kid is an idiot who probably hasn’t finished a day of school since (Usher began babysitting him) he became famous.
whet does this haveto do with new zilind?
I dotn know whatyou are tolking abut.
