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.
