Joe Biden has made a gaffe of A-list proportions.

During the annual turkey pardoning ceremony ahead of Thanksgiving, the US President remarked about how impressive it was that two birds named Liberty and Bell were able to be spared.

“Just to get here, Liberty and Bell had to beat some tough odds and competition," he said in the speech.

"They had to work hard, to show patience, and be willing to travel over 1,000 miles.

"You could say it’s even harder than getting a ticket to the Renaissance tour or, or Britney’s tour.

"She’s down, it’s kind of warm in Brazil right now.”

Britney Spears is definitely not on tour at the moment and has just released her memoir.

Taylor Swift is the one who is in Brazil on her incredible Eras tour and when he says it's 'kind of warm', it was absolutely roasting.

It was so hot that Swift had to postpone one of her performances and a fan died at another one because it was so hot.

Temperatures were reported to have reached to over 100 degrees Fahrenheit, or around 37C, at the Estádio Olímpico Nilton Santos in Rio on Friday (17 November).

Brazilian newspaper Folha de São Paulo later named the fan as Ana Clara Benevides Machado.

She was just 23 years old when she reportedly fainted and suffered a cardiac arrest. Paramedics attended to her at the scene, but sadly she passed away an hour after reaching the hospital.

Her cause of death has not yet been announced.

She said: "I can’t believe I’m writing these words but it is with shattered heart that I say we lost a fan earlier tonight before my show. I can’t even tell you how devastated I am by this.

"There’s very little information I have, other than the fact that she was so incredibly beautiful and far too young."
