Rihanna's Continental Irony

3/14/2008 3:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

RihannaDuring a recent radio interview in Stockholm, urban diva Rihanna made it clear why she sticks to singing and not commenting on foreign policy -- and an umbrella doesn't cover up this one!

According to a Nordic TMZ source, the sultry songstress claims to love South American** and Thai food, but "doesn't like Mexican or Asian food."

Clearly Rihanna- anna- anna thrived more in her music classes than geography. Shut up and eat!

**Clearly we are aware that Mexico is not in South America.

Well okay on the Thai comment, I guess, but how stupid are the TMZ staffers that they don't realize that Mexico is NOT part of South America?

What a bunch of idiots. Mexico is in NORTH America.

Um, Ever hear of NAFTA? North American Free Trade Agreement? It's a trade bloc made up of the 3 North American countries: USA, Mexico and Canada.

As for Mexican v. South American, it depends on where you are in SA or Mexico. Same for Thai and Asian. She just slipped up like we all do. As for me, seems like a boring "news" day if this is the best TMZ (or Swedish media) has to offer.

Let's see some people here need to take a few lesson... or even easier how about you look up things in Google. 1st off I get that whole "Asian" and "Thai" link, but let me tell you that Mexican food is not by all means close to any of the food in South America. 2nd thing... Monkeynoodle should go back to 3rd grade since Mexico IS part of North America... would you like me to tell you what other two countries are part of it. As your fellow Central American, I can assure you Mexico is not part of Central America.

Okay so I'm looking at this rather old globe. It shows North America reaching from the just below the artic circle and ending at the U.S. / Mexican border. Central America is shown from that border to Panama. Then South America extends from Panama to Cape Horn. So my question is, why doesn't Rihanna eat at McDonalds?

First, Mexico is part of North America, and their cuisine is different from South American cuisine. Second, it is possible for one to like Thai food but not like other Asian cuisine. Being that you made this little slip about North vs. South American Geography, you have no place commenting on another person's lack of world knowledge.

hey, "da one"--PLEASE take a few geography lessons. As another person has posted, it would seem that all the publicity surrounding NAFTA over the years would clue people in that Mexico is part of North America.

Central America is a less-formal term applied to the region beginning with Guatemala and ending with Panama. Mexico spart of North America.

Central America is from Guatamala to Panama, isn't it?

Canada, US, Mexico are North America.

South America is from Columbia all the way down to Chile/Argentina (tip of continent).
