In Pics and Video: When celebrities get confused by geography

Lady Gaga may have gotten confused as to where she was last week, but she wasn’t the first and she won’t be the last.

SO WE ALL now know that Lady Gaga has some UK-related issues, thinking as she did that she was in the United Kingdom when she was actually here – in Ireland.

North America is a confusing continent – if you’re Katy Perry, that is

Asked where she would live outside of North America, the California girl could have benefited from having a map to hand. If only people had listened to Miss Teen South Carolina and bought some more of them. Watch (19m 48s in):
