Bieber causes embarrassment with 'Sixteenth Chapel' remark

June 26, 2012 - Washington

Bieber made an embarrassing blunder on Friday night's episode of "Late Show with David Letterman," referring to Michelangelo's fresco on the ceiling of the "Sixteenth Chapel" rather than the Sistine Chapel.

The talk show host had been teasing the 18-year-old pop star about his latest tattoo, urging him to draw the line at creating a mural like "the Sistine Chapel," when Bieber responded, "I'm not going for the Sixteenth Chapel," Fox News reported.

Knowing that he had the perfect set-up for a joke, Letterman said, more to the audience than to the teen star, "Canadian high school!" as Bieber looked on cluelessly.
