Louis Tomlinson from One Direction wants a pet monkey

One Direction's Louis Tomlinson has admitted that he would love to emulate the late King of Pop by purchasing a pet monkey.

The heartthrob revealed that having a pet primate would be amazing and he explained to The Sun newspaper that he got the idea from his hero, Michael Jackson:

"I’d like to adopt a chimpanzee and build an eternal friendship. That would be amazing. I am a big Michael Jackson fan. He was a real inspiration and had so many great songs.”

The One Direction lads performed on Saturday Night Live over the weekend (April 7) and wowed the studio audience and viewers alike with their fantastic renditions of 'What Makes You Beautiful' and 'One Thing'. They also donned 70s-style clothing and funny wigs for an entertaining skit.
