Do you remember this? Kat Von D got this big tattoo of Jesse James when they were dating. It was a portrait of him when he was a kid, and it was right on her rib cage. And yeah, it was pretty large.
When they broke up, she said that she had no plans on getting it removed, and here’s why:
“He had a rough childhood, so to see what he’s become from there, it’s amazing. That’s why I wanted the picture of him as a child, to capture that certain innocence. It was good having him beside me while we finished. The tattoo is a way of him recognizing somebody loves him.”
Sad, right? But then she just tweeted this picture:
That’s fair, I guess. It probably would have been a better idea not to get the tattoo in the first place, or to have considered that maybe a relationship with Jesse James, a man best known in many circles for being a cheating cheater, wouldn’t end well, or, I don’t know, to not have dated him in the first place. But this is good too. It sounded like he really hurt her, and I’m sure it’s not easy having your ex’s face permanently plastered to your torso. So good on her, I guess.
Never have I felt so strong about True Love, than I do today. I believe in Love more than anything else, and more than ever before.
Today I encountered the 19th girl to add to the list of people Jesse cheated on me with during this last year.
I kept going back and forth in my mind as to what the best way would be for me to release and let go of any residual feelings remaining from that toxic relationship. All of this may sound petty or immature to some, but I assure you this is coming from a place of pure honesty and love.
There was a time when I was confident and excited at proving the world wrong, because I believed so deeply in people’s ability to change for the better. Although this was not a primary purpose in the relationship, I did feel like it would be a positive thing for those who judged Jesse solely based on what they read in tabloids, to see that change is always possible – even in the people who seem hopeless.
I still believe that, even if that change never occurs inside of him - because I see proof of change everyday – in others, and in myself.
“I’ve been passionate about music all my life. I’ve been playing classical piano since I was six. So I understand the form, but it will be fun to be able to translate a message. I think it’s much like tattooing or the TV show or make-up, my clothing line, fashion. All those things, they’re just different outlets to be able to be creative. So music, I think it’s going to be one of those things.”
But what will Kat’s original tunes sound like? We can’t be sure, but she did say that her songs would be of the “dark, more tragically romantic” variety, and she named some of her influences as Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, AC/DC, Depeche Mode and The Cure. So basically, we’re looking to get some hot gothic mess in album form, which is, you know, fitting.
Will any of you be rushing out to purchase Kat’s record when it comes out?
Way back when this lovely couple broke up the first time, I told you guys this story about how Jesse cheated on Kat, and that’s what caused the break up. It was a long shot, I know, and the story did sound a little shady, but it looks like Jesse really was cheating. You know how we know with such certainty? Because Kat Von D said so herself!
And there you have it. Are you shocked? Appalled? Has this changed your opinion of Jesse James (haha, of course not, Kat is no Sandy B!)? Or are you just content to never hear about these two ever again?
LOL! Lady Gaga worked with New Kids on the Block? Yeah, I definitely didn’t know that. Who the hell filmed this thing? I also never heard anyone in my entire life call anything about Kat Von D “elegant.” Gaga also sounds like your stereotypical fame-seeking, dumb-speaking twit that ends every sentence in a question? Yeah, just like that. I mean, I’d completely rather take this version of Gaga over the now-version of Gaga, who’s too pretentious and who thinks she’s so “fashion and art” that she can’t see her ass from a hole in the ground, but in either case … way too funny.
Here’s what Jesse has to say about the couple’s reconciliation:
“Sometimes you are only given one chance in life,” he says. “It was up to me to open my eyes and see it. That girl is my chance. I will never stop fighting and striving to hold on to her. Showing her how special she is, and how much I love her.”
And that would be so sweet, it really would, except for all that stuff about Hitler and Sandra Bullock. But hey, we can rejoice in the fact that these two found love in one another, right?
