Harry Potter thinks Biebs is a girl!

2010-06-23 08:15

Oops! Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe recently gave an interview to MTV and said that he'd only heard of Justin Bieber two weeks ago. Perhaps Hogwarts should have their satellite reception adjusted.

He said "I genuinely thought it was a woman singing. I’d never heard it before. Is it big in England yet?”

Of course we totally understand his confusion. Justin Bieber does sound like a teenaged girl. All teenaged boys sound like teenaged girls till their voices break. One of the Channel24 editors mistook "Baby" for a Natasha Bedingfield song. Wonder how she feels about that...

And what's with the "Is it big in England yet" comment? You'd think in our 'global village' people would look outside their little bubble once in a while. Biebs is just as guilty, with recently having told an Australian TV host "We don't say that in America" (after he couldn't understand the word German).

Seriously. Even though both their native lands are competing in the World Cup right now, asking them to point out South Africa on a map might be a stretch.

C'mon... be honest. You too thought Biebs was a girl at first, hey?
