SHERYL CROW was left stunned by the way MICHAEL JACKSON treated his
pet chimpanzee BUBBLES when she toured with him in the late 1980s.

Crow, who was a backing singer for Jackson on his blockbuster BAD tour,
insists the superstar wasn't as "weird" as he seems today, but he still had

She reveals, "Bubbles was on tour, which was a little bit strange, and by that
time he was very strong and probably should have been in some kind of wildlife

"Mike used to bring him round and he'd get kind of violent and he would take a
ballpoint pen and stab it into his chest and he said, 'You have to do 
that to get his
attention - to make him stop what he's doing.'

"It wasn't long before the monkey had to go home."
