Can We Talk About Harry Styles’ Hebrew Tattoo For a Sec?

harry-styles-hebrew-tattoo

One Direction's most popular pinup is probably Harry Styles, who is all over the tabloids these days for his relationship with Taylor Swift. But I'm much more interested in something else - his tattoos. Specifically, the Hebrew one.According to The Sun, the tat spells out "Gemma," Harry's sister's name. (I would have pronounced it "Gimah," but according to my resident fluent ivrit-speaker that second symbol is an apostrophe and not a yud.)

Before Katy Perry was Katy Perry, she was Katy Hudson, a preachers' daughter and aspiring gospel singer. Her parents are both Pentecostal preachers, and when Katy was growing up she was forbidden to read Harry Potter, listen to any non-Christian music, or even watch the first Sister Act movie (the second one was a-okay). After a failed attempt at a gospel career under her real name, Katy reinvented herself as the candy-loving boob-flaunting superstar she is today. She says that the first … [Read more...]

Please Enjoy This Video of Young Ryan Gosling Performing at a Mormon Talent Show
