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.

Wouldn't be funny if the next photo of Rihanna we see is her eating at Taco Bell? Or is that what she thinks is Mexican food?

Wake Up    

to Geography 101 (#69)--The Americas got the name from Amerigo Vespucci, NOT from a French map maker, LOL.

And the disparity in beliefs regarding whether or not Mexico is part of Central America is a result of people not understanding the difference beween "Central America" (capital C) and "central America" (lowercase C). Mexico is most certainly part of what was once called Mesoamerica or Middle America, but as a whole has never been part of the proper name, "Central America," which is defined by the group of countries that were once together as the Federal Republic of Central America. Prior to the formation of this republic, the area of Chiapas was considered to be part of Central America but then became part of Mexico. Mexico itself was never part of "Central America." The Federal Republic of Central America eventually split into separate countries, which we now know as Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, and so on, down the isthmus up to and including Panama.

Wake Up    

to Geography 101--if that comment was directed at me, I didn't have to look anything up, my friend. I simply don't spend massive amounts of time sitting on the TMZ site. I responded to your post when I read it. I teach history for a living and it just gets to me when I read so much misinformation. Yeah, I know, it's just a silly gossip site, but the ignorance is pathetic.

Yep, she looks good, can barely sing and no one told all of you that she's smart. Just because you have a huge forehead doesn't mean that serious geography knowledge is stored up there! So on cuteness, eyes and nice ass, she gets a pass.

what at a dumb, pointless article. A waste of space and nothing more. TMZ just don't post stupid stuff like this. Nobody wants to read it.

I thought Mexico was considered "Central America". I don't know much about geography but I looked it up once because a friend and I were debating on it recently. I could be wrong...

Chris--#83--"technically," Mexico is part of NORTH America, not Central America. But at least you knew it wasn't South America.

Yes, it's true that not all asian food is the same but for dummies like Rihanna, saying she likes Thai food but not Asian food shows her stupidity. Uh hello, I guess they didn't teach you that Thailand IS an Asian country.

Isn't Stockholm outside of the Thirty Mile Zone? TMZ do your readers a favor (or at least this one) do not waste our precious reading time with worthless fillers. We need substance. Focus on what matters, commercials for your grand TV show.

We should all thank Rihanna for her discerning palate of sophistication.

Rihanna is not all that dumb. Mexico is NOT in South America...FYI TMZ! And Thailand is NOT the only country in Asia!
