Justin Bieber Covers I-D

He discusses his monkey.

justin-bieber-id-magazine-winter-2015Justin Bieber is i-D’s latest cover star. He’s photographed rocking 17 facial hairs while winking. At least we think he’s winking.

In the accompanying profile, Bieber discussed his pet monkey—which was taken from him in Germany because he didn’t have the correct paperwork—in a way that you simply cannot argue with.

“Obviously people looked at it like, ‘Why does he have a monkey?'” said Bieber. “But if you could get a monkey, wouldn’t you want a monkey? Come on! Let’s not look at that as a weird thing, that’s a pretty cool thing to have. It’s a monkey!”
