We take joy in showing you all of music's most adorable animals


Famous musicians and their pets - cute animals, cats and dogs Photo: Instagram

We know musicians love their pets, and we love musicians - and we obviously love pets. So, we felt we had to present some of the biggest music stars, pictured with their adorable animals. 

From the time Justin Bieber had a little monkey, to Iggy Pop's hilarious cockatoo, to Paul McCartney's picture-perfect pooch, we take a look at some of the biggest musicians and their perfect pets (who have absolutely no clue how famous or talented their owners are).

Ben Butler


An unapologetic lover of everything from UKG to garage rock, to anything indie or emo-orientated; Ben has been making up for lost time by going to just about any festival or gig he can sneak into since graduating from University. Having cut his teeth writing for forward-thinking publications like 1883 Magazine, The 405, Gigwise, Public Pressure, and Haptic World he has relished writing on music culture's most ridiculous, asinine qualities to its stratospheric heights. He can be found @Benjaminabutler where he'll be spouting nonsense on anything from the state of modern house music, to the UK festival scene and pop-punk bands or how bar tokens are the worst thing that has happened to live events, ever.
