Taylor Momsen suffered another onstage setback last week – only, this time, it was not of the nipple variety.

While performing in Glasgow with her band, The Pretty Reckless, the provocative performer, 17, excitedly told the audience they were “the craziest crowd in the whole of England.” Only one problem: Glasgow is in Scotland.

Local student Paul Krane, 26, says the mistake was ill received, telling the Daily Record newspaper, “People began to cheer as they presumed she was going to say Scotland, but when the penny dropped all you could hear was boos.”

Apparently not realizing the geographical mistake, the band continued to play undeterred, albeit baffled, without issuing an apology.

And while the starlet later took to her Twitter account to clear the air, saying, “Glasgow, I love you, I now HAVE to tour SCOTLAND (haha, sorry bout the slip up!),” it seems the gesture was a case of too little, too late.

“I think she needs to go back to school for geography lessons,” said offended fan Stuart Neilson, 23. “There really isn’t any excuse. Surely someone backstage could have said something to her.”
