Rumors continue to abound that Drew Barrymore is converting to Judaism for her husband Will Kopelman. Her next step is getting her tattoos removed.

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 what was unusual was the discovery that Max and his portrayer have a chest tattoo.

Since tattoos are outlawed in Judaism, the ink is extra funny. However, the episode didn't cover the … [Read more...]

Erykah Badu was planning a few concerts in Malaysia this week, including one in the capital of Kuala Lumpur. However, it seems like she's out of luck. The concerts were cancelled after a Malaysian paper printed a photo of Erykah where one of her tattoos--the word "Allah" in Arabic script--was visible. In addition to that tattoo, she also has other tattoos in both Hebrew and Arabic. Tattoos are not permitted in Islam, and Erykah's ink was considered super offensive. It is also forbidden to depict … [Read more...]
