Rihanna expected people would call her out on the content of her new rebelle fleur neck tattoo, OK Magazine says. Indeed, Gawker did just that, pointing out that in French, the adjective typically follows the noun.
In a text message to her tattoo artist that was leaked to OK, the singer allegedly wrote, "rebelle fleur translates to rebel flower, NOT rebelious flower, its 2
nouns so in that case fleur does not HAVE to be first! Fyi, cuz they
will ask." (Rihanna, incidentally, is from Barbados, where the official language is English, with a local variation known as Bajan.)
We have to say, despite RiRi's explanation, and unfortunately having been trained in Spanish instead of French, we're still confused -- though an in-house Ministry source explains that rebelle can ...
A rocky road ahead is pretty much guaranteed once you announce to the world that you did the nasty with the hubby of America's Sweetheart. Sprinkle in a swastika or two and the road gets even rockier.
Nazi fetish photos of Michelle "Bombshell" McGee, a.k.a. "Michelle Sinai," in all her tattooed glory, taken a year ago, were publicized today by TMZ. Wearing a swastika armband and military cap, McGee licks a death's head dagger and poses with a large gun. TMZ reports that the imagery was the photographer's concept.
On Twitter, people have been flinging venomous, profane, unpublishable messages at a McGee account that hasn't been updated since Saturday. We can't publish the account's username because that too contains profanity. And we'd link you to McGee's MySpace and Facebook pages, but, well -- you get the idea.
Over in a no-cussing zone, however, roommate Lindsay Sinai sat down with E!
News and calmly spilled her observations about the alleged
relationship, and CNN tried to explain why we care about Sandra Bullock's love life. Long story short on Sandy: We like her. We really like her.
OK, Amy Winehouse definitely has Her Own Look. But is it a look that the rest of us could pull off? Or would even want to pull off? Or does it just look as if it's been pulled off already, from the moment it's put on?
After the jump, we present more pics of style a la Winehouse -- she's with Blake Fielder-Civil at right, at the 2007 MTV Europe Music Awards -- because pics of the line at Drapers.com are for subscribers only. (We're thinkin' we can wait till October for a peek.)
Reality TV diva Khloe Kardashian and L.A. Lakers forward Lamar Odom are certainly knocking down those milestones. The fact that he just put his Manhattan Beach bachelor pad/Lakers frat house on the market for around $2.4 million seems almost anticlimactic.
Check out the tattoo pics on Khloe's blog -- where we learned that the decision was spontaneous, she says: "When we were at dinner [Saturday night], I just knew I wanted a tattoo for Lamar in the web of my hand, and then once we got to the shop we decided on getting each other's initials."
And, yes, sports fans, especially the few who haven't watched the "E! True Hollywood Story," Olympic medalist Bruce Jenner joined this bunch of his own free will. Perhaps he can give fellow jock Lamar Odom a few tips on keeping up with the Kardashians?
