Who's bad? Well, singer Michael Jackson's ability to handle a grown-up chimp, apparently. The artist is pictured enjoying a cup of tea with his pet "Bubbles" at Osaka City Mayoral Hall on September 18, 1987, in Osaka, Japan. When Bubbles became too big and strong for Jackson to keep as a pet, his trainer, Bob Dunn, housed him at his training facility. Sankei Archive/Getty Images
