Foxes reveals she was bitten by a monkey after music festival

Foxes recent visit to Gibraltar won’t be one that she forgets anytime soon, as she has revealed to Yahoo Celeb a monkey bit a chunk of her arm during a tour.

Describing the incident as a ‘bad souvenir’, the 27-year-old singer, who was among the acts performing at the Gibraltar Music Festival, says it was a very ‘weird’ experience but she still loves monkeys.

Hmmmmm we doubt she will be getting involved with any monkey business anytime soon!

She said: ‘I was nowhere near the monkey, I was completely down the other side and wasn’t upsetting it.

‘I just kept my distance but a female monkey ran and bit me on my arm. Apparently they haven’t done that to anyone in a while.’

Foxes – real name Louisa Rose Allen – showed us her bruises from the bite and said she has yet to go to the hospital to get a tetanus shot.

‘I got bitten by the monkey and five minutes later I was back on the plane with a massive plaster on me.

‘It’s like I’ve got a really bad souvenir from Gibraltar. But I still love monkeys, It’s just unfortunate that happened but I feel the monkey just wanted to get closer’.

She added: ‘I was so sad because all I wanted to do is have a chin wag and a hug.’

The Southampton born star has just returned to the UK following a successful two-month US tour with Coldplay who she now says are her musical godfathers.

Talking about her time away with the band, she said: ‘The Coldplay boys taught me a lot and have now become my mentors.

‘They are actually quite supportive of what I do which is really nice. Chris Martin was the one that asked me to go on the tour and he was really sweet. It went really well and I had the best time.’

Foxes fans will have to wait a little while before we hear new music from the hit maker as she is currently in the studio working on her next record.

Giving us a mini scoop on what we can expect, she told us: ‘I always write very personal things and tend to spill my guts, I know it sounds terrible!

‘For me when I’m in the studio it’s always about getting into a mind state where I use music as therapy so it will be something around that area.’

No tracks about monkeys then!
