Justin Bieber seemed to be doing quite well in recent days, rebranding himself as a decent human being and changing his sound up as well, which just won him his first Grammy. But it looks like he may be slipping into his old ways once again, as new reports have surfaced indicating that he once again, wants a pet monkey.
To recap, Bieber used to once have a ten-week old pet monkey called Mally who he took with him to Germany. He then abandoned Mally in Germany after it was found that the country required paperwork in order to take the monkey out. This was the kind of behaviour that made the public dislike him in the past. Vanity Fair reports that Bieber hasn’t ruled out the possibility of getting another money in the future, saying he just won’t “bring him to Germany or travel with it anymore.”
Yeah, one day. Just gotta make sure I got a house and it stays in the [expletive] house. I’m not gonna bring him to Germany or travel with it anymore. People are always like, ‘Why did you get a monkey?’ If you could get a monkey, well, you would get a [expletive] monkey, too! Monkeys are awesome.
Animal rights group North American Primate Sanctuary Alliance (NAPSA) have hit out at Bieber according to a report by Daily Mail. The group have publicly requested Bieber not to get another pet monkey, calling it ‘irresponsible’ and a ‘foolish endeavor’.
Please do not repeat this foolish endeavor. It is simply not possible to fulfill the unique needs of your monkey within a private home. It will prove dangerous to both you and your monkey, as well as irresponsible when it comes to your public following.
Bieber admitted in a recent interview with GQ that people in his life had warned him against travelling with the ten-week old monkey, time will tell if Bieber heeds the warnings this time.
