Is Justin Bieber considering adopting?

Oh what could possibly go wrong

Most Popular

In news that will make you do an eye roll that sends your eyeballs drifting into outer space to orbit several planets, Justin Bieber is apparently considering adopting. But nope, he won't be doing an Angelina Jolie by finding a small neglected child to raise as his own - he's going to adopt a lion. OH GOOD.

Biebs was reportedly left inspired to channel his inner Timone and Pumba after meeting businessman and animal lover Alex Haditaghi before a gig recently, and now he's wanting to get hold of his very own pet lion.

Great idea. Y'know, because the hamster and then the monkey and the puppy all worked out so well for everyone involved. Oh except for the hamster and the monkey and the puppy.

Justin shared a pic of himself cuddling a gorgeous white lion cub on Instagram a few days ago, and while the appeal of having a baby lion to snuggle up to every night is definitely understandable, anyone with half a brain will probably know that it's not the wisest idea.

Alex revealed that when they met, Justin announced that he wanted to adopt the lion, but has also told the New York Daily News that they "still haven't figured out if it's an adoption or sponsorship", but that he was "amazed how great he was with animals - how caring he was."

Apparently Alex is keen for Biebs to take the lion (who he apparently wants to give the super original name Simba) on tour, because Alex thinks he could educate his fans on wildlife, and become a spokesperson for his new animal sanctuary. Oh Christ.

Hmm. The idea of Justin financially sponsoring a lion is pretty lovely, but we're not sure keeping an ACTUAL LION in a tour bus is quite the best plan that JB's ever come up with. Maybe just stick to feeding squirrels in the park for now?

ODD. Let us know whatcha think about this with a tweet to @Sugarscape, oooh and don't forget to add us on Facebook too once you've checked out the bonus video below.
