Justin Bieber, you might be making some furry friends, but you’re not making any friends at the North American Primate Sanctuary Alliance.
TMZ reported that the organization called the Biebs”foolish” and “irresponsible,” because he’s saying “monkeys are awesome” and that he wants another one, with this provision that he”just gotta make sure I got a house and it stays in the f***ing house … I’m not gonna bring him to Germany.”
To refresh your memory: in 2013 he took his monkey, Mally, to Germany where customs officials confiscated it after Bieber didn’t have the proper documents. He never tried retrieving it, which is the saddest part of the story.
Now, UNDERSTANDABLY, the North American Primate Sanctuary Alliance is lashing out, warning Biebs getting another primate “will prove dangerous to both you and your monkey, as well as irresponsible when it comes to your public following.”
The org pleads, “Please do not repeat this foolish endeavor.”
NAPSA wants the word out that monkeys carry disease and turn hostile when owners try to domesticate them, telling Bieber, “It is simply not possible to fulfill the unique needs of your monkey within a private home.”
DUDE. Don’t get another monkey. Go get Mally from his German prison, if you want another pet so badly. GEEZ! Though I gotta say, the monkey probably fared better there than with you.
His first GQ cover shoot, his first grammy and now…his first video about all his tattoos. Lots of firsts, Justin Bieber!
To promote the new editorial and interview in GQ, Bieber made a pretty cute video for the magazine in which he goes through all the tattoos on his body, chronicling the story behind each one.
As you would expect, the majority of the musician’s tattoos are kinda Christ-y and a lot are about his family or childhood (including his first tattoo, a tiny drawing of a seagull on his hip that is based on a book he read as a child).
AND THEN there’s the tattoo of his ex Selena Gomez, which he showed us in the video, pointing at the portrait of her on his wrist and saying, “this is my ex girlfriend, so I tried to cut her face up with some shading, but people still know.”
OF COURSE WE DO, Justin.
Check out the video below and tell us which of Justin’s many tattoos is your favorite.
Keeping it Classy, Selena Gomez!
The 23-year-old looked pretty great in her sexy, sparkly Calvin Klein cutout gown, and was there to support BFF Taylor Swift 100% (and celebrate after when she won album of the year!). But it wasn’t just her squad that was celebrating some Grammy wins. Her ex, Justin Bieber, took home his first Grammy for his dance track, “Where Are U Now,” with Skrillex and Diplo. Gomez said some kind words about the “Love Yourself” singer, whom she dated back in 2011:
“I’m very happy for him. Honestly, so cool,” Gomez told ET, going on to praise Bieber’s collaborators: “They have such a cool energy amongst all of them to be able to create something like that. It’s really great.”
But she can’t dwell on her ex, because in less than three months, Gomez will hit the road for The Revival Tour, which kicks off in Las Vegas on May 6:
“I’m just excited to get on the road. This album means so much to me and I put my all in it so now I’m just ready to do it,” the “Hands to Myself” singer teased of her tour. “I’m ready to go to the next level.”
Gomez admitted that while she’s still in the planning phase, fans should expect bold outfits, adding, “I’m kind of figuring out what the emotion of [what] all of it is going to be.”
Good to know that bad feelings are just water under the bridge for these two. Will you go see Selena on her tour?
Justin Bieber did it and the Beliebers are THRILLED!
The 21 year old won his first GRAMMY award during the award show’s portion that is held before the telecast, so while we couldn’t see it, I’m sure Beliebers are all like, popping bottles (of non-alcoholic booze, you know, because that of age thing).
Bieber took home a Grammy for Best Dance Recording with Skrillex and Diplo for “Where Are U Now,” and kind of adorably the dude retweeted a fan who screenshotted one of his tweets from December 31, 2010:
“#2011 the dream… would be to win a grammy,” the original tweet posted by Bieber read. “That would be just amazing. A boy can dream right? #2011.”
You can, Biebs. YOU CAN.
Just days ago we announced that Justin Bieber‘s first GQ cover was released, sans full interview (I mean, we had a few quotes but you KNOW that’s not enough!). But now…we get the pics, the interview, and the whole GD tattooed shebang!
HEADS UP: This is a great interview. Biebs talks a lot about getting his monkey confiscated in Germany in a totally unironic way. And the Tulum instagram incident. And, trying to get off of Adderal. And makes tons of weird, lame jokes. So you should definitely check out the full interview here, but here are some highlights:
On his relationship with god: “I feel like that’s why I have a relationship with Him, because I need it. I suck by myself. Like, when I’m by myself and I feel like I have nothing to lean on? Terrible. Terrible person. If I was doing this on my own, I would constantly be doing things that are, I mean, I still am doing things that are stupid, but… It just gives me some sort of hope and something to grasp onto, and a feeling of security, and a feeling of being wanted, and a feeling of being desired, and I feel like we can only get so much of that from a human.”
On getting a new pet monkey:“Yeah, one day. Just gotta make sure I got a house and it stays in the fucking 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 fucking monkey, too! Monkeys are awesome.”
On being exclusive with Hailey Baldwin:“I don’t want to put anyone in a position where they feel like I’m only theirs, only to be hurt in the end. Right now in my life, I don’t want to be held down by anything. I already have a lot that I have to commit to. A lot of responsibilities. I don’t want to feel like the girl I love is an added responsibility. I know that in the past I’ve hurt people and said things that I didn’t mean to make them happy in the moment. So now I’m just more so looking at the future, making sure I’m not damaging them. What if Hailey ends up being the girl I’m gonna marry, right? If I rush into anything, if I damage her, then it’s always gonna be damaged. It’s really hard to fix wounds like that. It’s so hard.… I just don’t want to hurt her.”
I’ll say it once and I’ll say it again: Justin Bieber is a very talented, not very smart weirdo who doesn’t understand humor. And this interview tooootally gets to the heart of that. LOVE IT.
