The "Confident" singer took a DNA test to find out more about her genetics and family's heritage - but when she posted her results on Twitter, fans started making fun of her for claiming to be different ethnicities.

The second tweet is what raised eyebrows with fans, read "And I'm 1% African!"

"I did a DNA test and found out I'm mainly Spanish, with Native American, SCANDINAVIAN (which I had NO idea), Irish, BRITISH...."

Though she tweeted about a variety of areas of the world where she was from - the fact that she included in a separate tweet that she is one per cent African seemed to really bother some Twitter users.
