11 Celebrities With Huge Gaps in Basic Knowledge That Will Make You Go “Hmm”

To make it kind, celebrities are more well-known for their talent and attractiveness than their intelligence. And many celebrities have a high IQ level and some others even get several college degrees from different fields. On the other hand, some celebrities showed that they needed to focus on their strengths and didn’t care about anything else.

Indeed, celebrities’ lives are so largely different from ours. So it’s understandable that some points of their reference are out of touch. Many musicians spent their whole childhood on the piano or guitar, which makes them so skillful and we often wonder how they can do that when they perform on stage.

Therefore, there’s always a reason for something unbelievable. We can’t believe they don’t know something obvious, like how they amaze us with their talent. Still, with all respect, we enjoy their awkward moments, and fans will adore them even more. We hope you enjoy this list of quirky celebrities and famous people whose common sense has failed them at least once.

#1 Someone had to explain internet p*rn to Eminem

Given how much time Eminem spends rhyming about sex, it’s difficult to believe he didn’t know how the rest of the world consumes their erotic content.

He apparently had no idea computers could be used to watch porn until an interviewer asked him about it in 2009 and had to explain it to him.

#2 Justin Bieber might not have known what Germany was.

There was a time when Justin Bieber was an innocent 16-year-old. The worst thing anyone could say about him was that he didn’t know what the word “German” meant.

In a 2010 interview, he had trouble understanding his interviewer’s New Zealand accent and mistook the word “German” for “Jewman.” But it appears that he simply didn’t know what Germany was.

#3 Jessica Simpson confused with Tuna and chicken

Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson’s marriage was ended by the reality television program Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica in the early 2000s, and it also revealed that Jessica thought tuna (particularly, Chicken of the Sea) was chicken.

Tyrese Gibson is renowned for occasionally ranting on Twitter, but in 2011 he topped the cake by publicly thanking Pandora for playing his songs “all the time.”

Thankfully, screenshots of the tweet still exist despite the fact that he later erased it, perhaps realizing his mistakes.

#5 Britney Spears was unsure of the location of London.

In 2004, when asked if she’d ever want to try her hand at Broadway, Spears said she’d “like to start somewhere small, like London or England.”

Jaden Smith Has a Few Questions Regarding Human Anatomy
Jaden Smith is a master of soon-to-be-trendy aphorisms, but his philosophical prowess was at its best in 2013 when he tweeted: “How can mirrors be real if our eyes aren’t real?”
What kind of eyes do you have, Jaden?

#6 Shaquille O’Neal believed that Greece’s Parthenon was a nightclub.

When asked if he visited the Parthenon while visiting Greece, Shaq responded: “I can’t really remember the names of the clubs that we went to.” Looks like Shaq may need to review his world history.

#7 Paris Hilton Has Never Been To Walmart

Throughout the 2000s, Paris Hilton gave us a never-ending supply of magnificently dubious statements, but none of them could compare to this one from The Simple Life: “What’s Walmart? Do they sell like wall stuff?”

Christina Aguilera was unaware of the location of the 2007 Cannes Film Festival, despite the fact that its name makes clear where it will take place. She said, “So, where’s the Cannes Film Festival being held this year?”

#9 Despite not knowing what a christening was, David Beckham knew he wanted one.

There are numerous religions that celebrities follow. Given this, it’s surprising that David Beckham wasn’t familiar with christenings.

However, he told reporters in 2004: “I definitely want Brooklyn to be christened, but I don’t know into what religion.” (For those not in the know, a christening is conducted in the Christian religion.)

#10 Melanie Griffith’s understanding of the holocaust was not complete

In 1992, Oscar nominee Melanie Griffith said, ‘I didn’t know that 6 million Jews were killed. That’s a lot of people.”

The actress, who was 34 at the time, discovered this information while portraying a WWII soldier in the movie Shining Through.

#11 Kourtney Kardashian asked a (maybe good) question about ants

The most mature and responsible of the Kardashian siblings is thought to be Kourtney. She is the one who, while Kim was sobbing over a lost earring, gently reminded her that “there are people that are dying.” However, as seen by her 2010 tweet, “Do ants have d*cks,” she isn’t always the most logical person in the room.

Ants do not, in case you were wondering, have penises. The majority of ants are female, and the few males that do exist mate with the queen using an aedeagus, which emerges from the female’s abdomen.
