Justin Bieber and Crystal

Don't look now Selena Gomez
, but Justin Bieber
is getting kissy with a new girl.
While backstage at the Teen Choice Awards
, the "Boyfriend" singer bumped into Crystal the capuchin monkey
and her trainer, Thomas Gunderson, and couldn't help but make eyes at the famous ape, waving and smiling at her before offering up his cheek for a quick peck.
At Gunderson's behest, Crystal eventually went for it – who could blame her? – and lightly licked Bieber's cheek, to his delight.
"I love monkeys!" he said.
