Glee star Lea Michele is your classic case of someone playing an innocent, wholesome character on television, but having a bit of a wild streak off screen. Amongst her at least nine tattoos, she has “imagine” on her foot (it matches her Glee co-stars Jenna Ushkowitz and Kevin McHale), a gold star (in honor of Rachel Berry, her straight-A Glee character), “I Believe” on her wrist (the big song from her Tony-winning musical Spring Awakening), a blue butterfly on her right foot (drawn by her cousin), a butterfly on her back (it matches her mother’s ink), a bird on her hip, two musical notes on her shoulder (they’re from Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”), “our city our love…” on her foot, and a tattoo on her thigh in memory of her grandfather’s passing. Ok, so maybe it’s not a wild streak; all of her ink seems to have legitimate sentimental meaning to her, and that’s pretty rare, so consider us impressed.
So folks, as part of her generic party-girl idiocy, Lindsay Lohan has gotten some generic tattoos. She has the ever popular tiny star that means something vapid and falsely deep, she has “shhhh” on her finger (get it, so she can put her finger to her mouth and “shhhh” people…ugh), a teardrop on her hand (again, so she can do a stupid thing where she puts her hand to face and mimicks crying), the words”La Bella Vida” on her lower back (“the beautiful life” in Italian…double ugh), some interpretation of some Marlyn Monroe saying on her arm (she undoubtedly took the wrong meaning from it), and her latest ink, lyrics from the Billy Joel song “I Go To Extremes”; which read, “Clear as a crystal sharp as a knife/I feel like I’m in the prime of my life,”. Billy Joel is awesome, Lindsay Lohan is terrible, and she’s again most likely misinterpreting his lyrics. I’m pretty sure he meant to tell people to follow their dreams no matter what, or something similar; he didn’t want them to act like drunk morons and make a constant mockery of the justice system. Boo to her, boo to her tattoos; I’m out.
