At this point, it should come as no surprise to any of you that Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus has a new tattoo; afterall, she has a few already. What is kind of surprising though, is how meaningful her new ink is. The recently engaged pop star’s newest tattoo is on her left forearm, and features a quote from popular United States President Theodore Roosevelt (he’s the one with the mustache, not the one with polio), and it’s a good one. The quote reads “So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.” If we remember our history, the full passage that the tat was taken from is about putting oneself out there and trying to succeed. We’d love to give her guff about the new piece, but we’re Amurikans! How could we not support a young lady getting the words of one of our most awesome of presidents etched on her skin? Good job Miley!
No folks, she didn’t do that one herself…well we don’t think she did…okay, if she did we’re really impressed with her mirror skills. Known for always having a tattoo gun at her side so that she can permanently scare any sap that gets close enough and/or drunk around her, Ke$ha added some new ink to her body recently, and we’ll be the ones to say it: it’s dumb. The “We R Who We R” and “Tik Tok” singer got “Suck It” tattooed on the inside of her lip, and while we have no problem with people getting ink inside their mouths, we do have a problem with women co-opting that phrase from the male gender…we’re lying, we have a problem witth unfunny women co-opting that statement. Basically, if Kaitlin Olsen or Amy Poehler got the same tattoo, we’d think it was hilarious, but we’re not really sure that Kesha even gets why that would be funny, she’s just doing it for shock value, and that dumb and annoying. So with that said, we boo you Ke$ha; boo.
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.
