Justin Bieber Brings a Snake Named Johnson to the 2011 VMAs
With Selena Gomez filling in as a pre-show host at the 2011 VMAs, Justin Bieber had to find a different date — and rather than bring one of his army of Beliebers, he brought a baby albino boa constrictor.
Selena, then officially his girlfriend, kept a straight face while asking the standard questions about Justin's outfit. "I have a snake," he responded. "I have red pants and cheetah shoes. My snake's name is Johnson."
True to short-term pet-owning form, Justin would later auction the snake off for charity.
