Justin Bieber schooled by David Letterman

HollywoodNews.com: It looks like Justin Bieber still has some learning to do despite receiving his high school degree recently.
While on David Letterman’s show, Bieber slipped up a little and Letterman made sure to point it out, states TMZ. The two were talking about all of Bieber’s tattoos when Letterman gave him some advice.
“Don’t go nuts [with the tattoos] … because more and more you see like the mural … like the Sistine Chapel, it’s too much,” Letterman commented.
But it seems Bieber didn’t quite listen: “I’m not going for the Sixteenth Chapel.”
And Letterman certainly caught that as he laughed, “Canadian high school.”
