Why pop stars should not be role models

I don't keep up celebrities. Well, except for Arthur Kade, of course. But I saw a headline on during my daily news rounds this morning that caught my eye: "Justin Bieber doesn't know what the word 'German' means. No, really." This I had to see.

"We don't say that in America." Really, kid?? We don't say "German"? Or maybe he thinks that no one says "What does ______ mean in German?" in America. Either way, this does not come off well for him.

When I first saw the video, I couldn't help but think, "Damn. Another blow to the American educational system." Then I looked this kid up (I honestly didn't know who the hell he was) and it turns out he's Canadian! Sorry, Canada, this one is on you.
