On Monday, Iggy Pop electrified Northrop Auditorium in Minneapolis with his ageless and shirtless lust for rock 'n' roll. Hours beforehand, however, he was making adorable Instagram videos with his beloved pet cockatoo, Biggy. 

Iggy pop may well be a street-walkin' cheetah with a heart full of napalm. But guess what: The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer also has a heart full of love for his feathery bestie! 

We'll go ahead and say Biggy's new Instagram account — featuring videos of the funky bird dancing with and biting its delighted owner — is taking the internet by storm. It absolutely shows two best buds, one man and one bird, living their lives with super-cute abandon. But don't take our word for it:

In related news, one time we interviewed Feather, the cherished cat of local pop-rock stars Hippo Campus. Are you a local musician with a rock-star pet who'd like to chat with City Pages? We're clearly not above that. 

In even more loosely related news, check out this classic Minnesota-made rock hit. We think Biggy would approve ;-)
