Tattoo Boo Boo Makes My Week
I was going to avoid writing about Hayden Panettiere's tattoo boo boo until I read the following description of the starlet in the Sydney Morning Herald:
"More from Cannes and the world of celebrity irony, brought to you by blonde actress Hayden Panettiere - a woman described by some as a less attractive Miley Cyrus, which presumably means more genes from Billy Ray."
I'm not entirely sure what that means, or why it was necessary to add a Miley Cyrus reference to an article about a mis-spelled tattoo but it made me laugh to the point where I felt it necessary to share the wealth.
I know Hayden tried to be cool by writing Vivere senza rimipianti, it reads, with an extra 'i' in rimpianti (Italian for "live without regret"). It's certainly better than putting a Chinese character on your ankle (cliche). Honestly though, if I'm going to put something permanent on my body I'm going to be damn sure that I get it right. The only thing that could have made this situation funnier was if the misspelled word meant something else in Italian. Sadly that wasn't the case. Oh well. It looks like the "less attractive Miley Cyrus" will have to "live without regret" regarding her permanent error.
