In what must have been a heartbreaking revelation yesterday, punk icon Iggy Pop did not get the answer he was hoping for when he asked his pet cockatoo Biggy Pop whether the feathered darling preferred his own music to the Godfather of Funk’s.

As you can clearly see in the video below (posted to Biggy’s own instagram), Iggy first played James Brown’s hit Make it Funky, which Biggy immediately decided absolutely slapped, practically rolling his little head right off his shoulders.

Next, Iggy played his own track with the Stooges, I’m Sick of You – and though Biggy started bopping (maybe even murmuring along with his dad’s singing?) the results were clear: this bird prefers the funk.

Our condolences to Iggy.
