When David Letterman advises Bieber not to add any new tattoo to avoid looking like the Sistine Chapel, the teen Canadian says, 'I'm not going for the 16th chapel look.'

Justin Bieber had no idea what Sistine Chapel was, and it's revealed when he had a playful banter with David Letterman on the CBS late-night show recently. The Canadian teen idol called the Pope's residence in the Vatican City a "sixteenth chapel" instead.

It all began when the "Late Show with David Letterman" host pointed out Bieber's new tattoo, "Believe". Acting like a concerned grandpa, the 65-year-old funnyman said, "Tell me that's the last one," to which the 18-year-old popstar replied, "Might be."

"No, no, it is," Letterman insisted. "Honestly, how does that help how you look to have a tattoo?" Bieber refused to back down, arguing, "How does it not? It doesn't not help the way I look," before explaining that it's the way he celebrated the release of his new album.

When Letterman pulled his arm and tried to rub the ink off, Bieber struggled, "Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! This is brand new!" The host then lectured him, "Do me a favor: don't go nuts ... Because more and more, you see the 'mural' and like the Sistine Chapel... it's too much."

Clearly having no idea what Letterman said, Bieber answered, "I'm not going for the 16th chapel look." He was unaware of his ignorant remark, but looked a bit uneasy on his seat when the audience broke into laughter. "Canadian high school!" Letterman quipped before lightening the mood by giving him a fist-bump.

To be fair, Justin was educated in French. In that language, the Sistene Chapel is called "La chapelle Sixtene."

The Sistine Chapel is part of the Pope's residence. Before you call the author stupid, might help if you at least look it up on Wikipedia.

One expert in art history, said on TMZ that da Vinci painted the Sistene Chapel. Of course he has nothing to do with the painting of its ceiling. Leterman could have used the gaffe by Bieber as a teaching opportunity for JB and the home audience. But instead he mocked him and the Canadian education system.

Actually, the Pope lives in the Papal Apartments, which like the Sistine Chapel, is within the Papal Palace. Honestly, no one, not even the Pope, would want to live in a chapel.

Actually, the Sistine Chapel is not the Pope's residence. Honestly, no one, not even the Pope lives, or want to live in a Chapel. He actually lives in the Papal Apartments, part of the Papal Palace, and Sistine Chapel is one of the chapels w/in the palace.
