Katy Perry entertains with poor pronunciation

Los Angeles: Pop superstar Katy Perry left an Australian TV show team in hysterics when she mispronounced the names of some of the country`s most famous cities while reading the weather forecast.

The 29-year-old was asked to read out the forecast during her appearance on Channel 7`s show “Sunrise”, where she incorrectly pronounced the names of some of Australia`s best-known destinations.

The `sunrise` team laughed when she said the name Cairns wrong and burst into hysterical laughter when she pronounced the country`s capital city, Canberra, as "Curnaberra".

The presenters stepped in to correct her before Perry went on to give the forecast for "Hogwarts" - apparently confusing the city of Hobart with the fictional school from the Harry Potter series.

The singer ended her forecast by telling the audience, "If you didn`t understand all this then you have an app on your phone (to find out the weather)."
