It's not all plain sailing when you're a teenage heart-throb. Justin Bieber may be able to surround himself with all the trappings of fame - from a massive entourage to a pet monkey - but even he cannot get around customs officials.

Customs at Munich airport confiscated his pet monkey in March, and even though he has decided that he doesn't want the monkey back, the sorry episode is going to cost the pop star thousands of euros.
