Today In Terrible Ideas: Justin Bieber told Us Weekly that he would like to get married and start a family young. He looks to his grandparents as a model for his future relationship as they are still together and in love. Bieber said, “They love each other so much, after so many years! When I’m their age, I want to be as in love with my wife as my grandfather is with his.” This is all really romantic and sweet until you remember the German government confiscated his pet monkey because he wasn’t properly taking care of it. And that he’s constantly in trouble for pissing off his neighbors, like racing his Ferrari up and down the street. I hope he knows that smoking pot “constantly,” as the Biebs is rumored to do, isn’t good for his sperm count. Okay, I’ll stop now. But seriously, wait awhile, Biebs. [Us Weekly] [Photo: Getty]
I know how it is for big celebrities. You get a taste of fame and you forget about all the little people and monkeys that helped get you to the top. Justin Bieber – adult-sized footie pajama-wearer and Anne Frank historian –– has 24 hours to reclaim his pet monkey OG Malley from Munich, Germany. If he doesn’t come and get the adorable pint-sized Capuchin, the little dude will be sent to live at a zoo in Germany. The pop star/hair gel fanatic had previously been criticized for taking the monkey away from its mother when it was too young. Earlier this month, Bieber signed over the monkey to German authorities, but he still has 24 hours to change his mind.
Biebz, whatever happened to no monkey left behind?
Seriously though, treating animals like disposable props is completely despicable. And this isn’t the first time Bieber’s done this. He had a pet hamster that he callously gave away to a fan. The hamster later died. Somebody stop letting this kid buy pets, please. [Buzzfeed]
First, there was J. Biebs‘ bodyguard, spotted the other day in a full-body pajama onesie. Now, today, here is Bieber himself, decked out in bright red footie pa-jay-jays. This is apparently his pre-concert outfit, the one he wears for his pre-concert ritual that we refer to as “Embarrassingly Strutting Around Stockholm, Sweden, With Your Buddy Pretending To Dance To Music That Isn’t There.” In any case, is this a trend we’re going to be seeing a lot more of? Are footie pajamas suddenly going to be “up in the clurb“-appropriate? Let’s hope so. I’m dusting off my Pajama Jeans right now. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
Sorry, Beliebers! Not everyone is as stoked about Justin Bieber as you guys are. In a recent poll by Star Magazine, they ranked Justin as the eighth most irritating celebrity above both Taylor Swift and Chris Brown. Dang! Above Chris Brown, last we checked, Biebs hadn’t been arrested for hitting his girlfriend. But we digress…
Bieber was actually not the highest ranked pop star on the list. Somewhat surprisingly, Jennifer Lopezcame in third on the list with John Mayer following at No. 4. Now, we get that John is a noted womanizer, so we can understand his position, but what did J. Lo do to land at No. 3? We guess her diva-tastic persona is too much for some people! Madonna also ranked ahead of Justin Bieber, coming in at No. 7, presumably because she is rude to her fans for giving her hydrangeas. Read more on Pop Crush…
Celebrity gossip is not the place to look for nuance or thoughtfulness. A lot of it is downright sexist. Take, for example, today’s headline on New York Post gossip page’s Page Six column, “Selena Gomez ‘To Blame For Justin Bieber’s Behavior’.”
You’re probably aware that pop stars Gomez and Bieber were, for a time, a couple. They broke up. You’re also probably aware that Bieber has been losing it a little bit lately: arguing with his neighbors, showing up late/canceling concerts, trying to fight paparazzi, running around in gas masks, abandoning his pet monkey.
Apparently, all of that is his ex-girlfriend’s fault! Keep reading »
Maybe you’ve heard that as Justin Bieber continues his weird worldwide meltdown, he left some monkey collateral damage in his wake? Bieber’s monkey was seized by German customs officials on Thursday after the singer failed to produce necessary customs documents. Mally, the wee capuchin monkey, is just 14 weeks old — too young, say experts, to be separated from her mother. But now she’s been seized by officials and is currently being kept in quarantine. Biebs has four weeks to come back and pick her up.
But what should Mally do if Bieber fails to show (which, given his track record with animals, is kind of likely)? Never fear, sweet monkey, we’ve got some options for you! Keep reading »
