Who knew her gross, drunken tattoo would inspire this much controversy?
Demi Lovato silenced the tattoo artist who gave her her “open vagina” tatto via Twitter on Wednesday, after the artist accused her of being a “drunk ass” who didn’t pay for a tattoo several years ago. US Weekly reports:
In early April, the “Skyscraper” hitmaker, 22, shared a photo of her freshly inked wrist, which altered the look of her previous tattoo. “Bye bye and hello ..” Lovato wrote at the time with a photo of her new design. “Thank you SO MUCH to my brother @GEESPOTAT2… It looks beaaauutiful and I LOVE it!! #RIPvaginatattoo #kidsdontdodrugs.”
The original tattoo artist, Ashley McMullen, caught wind of Lovato’s “vagina tattoo” comment, and constructed a response of her own. “Cool post @ddlovato,” McMullen wrote on in a comment on the singer’s Instagram. “Thanks for getting the tattoo covered up I did for free that you specifically asked for. Not to mention you didn’t even have the courtesy to offer me any money in the first place. You pissed all over our toilet seat and you made a fool of yourself. What a shame that people look up to you. The tattoo you covered it with kinda sucks too. Looks like you might forever be a goon. #demilovato #scumbag #turd #claimstobesober #drankallthebeer #peepeetoiletseat #yousuck.”
“Dear Ashley McMullen, I wasn’t going to acknowledge your bitter Instagram comments but since your side of the story has picked up some headlines, I would like to share my thoughts and send you a proper apology,” the “Neon Lights” singer wrote.
“First, I would like to say I’m really sorry I don’t remember you or getting tattooed by you, but as you know I was f—ed up and sometimes people act like ‘#turds’ when they’re loaded. Second, I apologize for my ‘#peepeetoiletseat’… That wasn’t on purpose, I was simply a drunken teenage girl. Lastly, I apologize for making fun of your work.. But… if I were you, I wouldn’t claim that one because it looked more like an open vagina (or even a butt hole as my 8 year old little sister called it at the time.)”
I don’t know, I kinda feel like Demi should be a little more respectful. Just being “drunk” isn’t an excuse to be lame. I FULLY support her covering up her weird vagina tattoo, but she could have been a little kinder to the woman who did it for her. What do YOU think?
