Sharon Stone flapped her way through a speech at the recent opening of a luxurious resort in Turkey – stunning the crowd with her admission she had never heard of the country’s fierce ally Azerbaijan. The Basic Instinct actress was paid a staggering $1.5 million just to emcee at the launch of the Mardan Palace in Antalya – Europe’s most expensive luxury resort – on Saturday…
Stone failed to impress her Turkish hosts by mis-pronouncing neighboring country Azerbaijan – and she left them baffled by shouting out the name of soul diva Chaka Khan instead. She shouted out to the crowd while trying to read from an autocue, “Azerbaijan? What is that? I can’t pronounce this! Chaka Khan! Chaka Khan!”

"It is an interesting and somewhat macabre parlor game to play at a large gathering of one’s acquaintances: to speculate who in a showdown would go Nazi. By now, I think I know. I have gone through the experience many times—in Germany, in Austria, and in France. I have come to know the types: the born Nazis, the Nazis whom democracy itself has created, the certain-to-be fellow-travelers. And I also know those who never, under any conceivable circumstances, would become Nazis."
