Um, sh*t.

Remember when Justin Bieber had a pet monkey?

Do you also remember JB took his monkey to Germany and got it taken away by German authorities? Do you ALSO remember JB was asked to pay A LOT OF FREAKING MONEY FOR THAT? Like, $8,000?!

Do you ALSO, ALSO remember he abandoned the monkey at a zoo?!

Yeah, well, it looks like the whole thing really didn't bother Justin that much because he might get another one.

When asked about getting another monkey pet, JB told GQ,

[I've] just gotta make sure I got a house and it stays in the f*cking 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 f*cking monkey, too! Monkeys are awesome.

Eh, it looks like not everyone agrees with you there, Bieber.

Apparently, the North American Primate Sanctuary Alliance spoke with TMZ and wanted to pass along a few words to Justin. The organization said,

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 added,

It will prove dangerous to both you and your monkey, as well as irresponsible when it comes to your public following.


Can't you just, like, get a dog or something? How about a fish? Maybe just think about it. There's no rush for you to be a parent, really.
