So yesterday, because we do everything together, The Internet and I decided to freak out over Chris Brown‘s neck tattoo which looked suspiciously like the aftermath of the last time he was in a car with Rihanna. In our defense, this seemed way more likely than Chris Brown having a fucking clue what the Day of the Dead is, so really, we’re the victims here. ABC News reports:
“His tattoo is a sugar skull (associated with the Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead) and a MAC cosmetics design he saw,” Brown’s rep said. “It is not Rihanna or an abused woman as erroneously reported.”
The rep noted that the tattoo is peeling right now, making it look not like the design Brown originally intended.
Phew, glad that’s cleared up. For a minute there, I thought Chris Brown tattooed a random dead woman on his neck because that was his immediate reaction to seeing one in a make-up ad, but clearly- wait.
