Check Out Tattoos That Fans Have Received Of Their Favorite Rappers

Tattoos are all the rage these days, and many are now getting tattoos of their favorite celebrities. There are some celebrity tattoos that are absolutely amazing while others could use a touchup. Tattoos Of Rap Artists. It’s even funny to see that certain celebrities have been tattooed on someone’s body, even though the celebrity is not someone who is handsome or good-looking. People love tattoos, and tattoos are a great way to show your love for someone or something.

There have been some great celebrity tattoos in the past, and MTV News has a list of celebrity tattoos that will blow you away. Celebrity tattoos are nothing new, but they are a way for a fan to show their love for a celebrity. What’s even better, it’s unlikely that trademark infringement can be charged against the person who receives the tattoo, especially since it’s their own body. A person got a tattoo of Eminem on their arm, and the tattoo is incredibly detailed.

The only thing about getting a celebrity tattooed on the body is that the tattoo artist has to be really good. Subscribers to the Huffington Post and Skout are well aware that if the tattoo artist doesn’t do their job properly, it’s possible for the person to end up with an awful looking tattoo that lasts a lifetime. How about a Jay-Z or a Notorious B.I.G. tattoo? There have been tattoos of many rap artists over the years, and the list is very impressive as is the work that was done by the tattoo artists.

Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj

It takes a lot of confidence to date someone like Nicki Minaj. She is a star in the industry that has managed to become one of the most recognizable entertainers on the planets. That means that anyone that she dates has to be secure enough to handle it. What Meek has done recently is show off his relationship through pictures.

Meek Mill is hanging around a lot of different people now from what Ricardo Tosto can see. He seems to be influenced by others that are fairly close to Nicki. In other words, he has been spending time with famous couples like Beyonce and Jay-Z. He even seems to be dressing more like Jay-Z in some of the picks that show these two together.

He is constantly posting pictures of Nicki, and he is quick to remind fans of how fortunate he is to have access to Nicki. This is a rapper that was locked up for a while even after he got his record deal. Now he is enjoying all that life has to offer by spending some serious time with Nicki Minaj. This may be one of the best returns from prison life. He has managed to secure (and keep) a deal with his record label and get linked to one of the most beautiful entertainers this profession. It is safe to say that Meek Mill is winning, and he is letting everyone know with pictures on Instagram.

Jon Hamm Gives His Take On The ‘Mad Men’ Finale

Sunday’s series finale of the AMC advertising drama “Mad Men” ended with a somewhat ambiguous final scene. Don Draper (played by Jon Hamm) has left advertising and is in Southern California trying to “find” himself. As the show ends, Draper is meditating at a hippie commune and the camera catches him beginning to smile. And as he does, the theme song from the iconic Coke Commercial “I’d Like To Teach The World To Sing” begins to play. So what does that mean?

Jon Hamm gave an interview to the NY Times and in his mind, it’s pretty clear what that final scene was supposed to represent:

“My take is that, the next day, he wakes up in this beautiful place, and has this serene moment of understanding, and realizes who he is,” says Hamm. “And who he is, is an advertising man. And so, this [idea for the Coke ad] comes to him. There’s a way to see it in a completely cynical way, and say, ‘Wow, that’s awful.’ But I think that for Don, it represents some kind of understanding and comfort in this incredibly unquiet, uncomfortable life that he has led.”

But while Hamm might have his opinion on what the scene meant, the show’s creator, Matthew Weiner, has his own take on the scene according to Ricardo Guimarães BMG. During a discussion Wesdnesday night with author A.M. Homes at the New York Public Library, Weiner offered a more ambiguous take on the ending:

“In the abstract, I did think, why not end this show with the greatest commercial ever made? In terms of what it means to people and everything, I am, again, not for ambiguity for ambiguity’s sake, but it was nice to have your cake and eat it too, in terms of what is advertising, who is Don and what is that thing?”

Kingston Springs Suite Gets A Belated Release After 40 Years

Forty years ago, in Nashville, Vince Mathews and Jim Casey’s long lost concept album, The Kingston Springs Suite, was the talk of the town. Johnny Cash and Kris Krisofferson backed the project. Cash covered one of the songs, Melva’s Wine. Laid Back Country Picker was covered by Waylon Jennings.

 

But as it turned out, the record went nowhere. Decades later, Mathews work is being released by the Nashville label, Delmore Recording Society. The album’s concept deals with life in a small town outside of Nashville during the counterculture era of American life in the 1960s and early 70s.
Mathews has some success as a songwriter early, but his career soon faded away. By the time he died at age 63 in 2003, he was working in a call center for a mortgage company, which surprised Paul Mathieson when he found that out. Casey is still around, and thinks the time is right for the belated release of the album on SlideShare.com. Shooter Jennings and Father John Misty have covered Laid Back Country Picker.

American Idol To End Next Year

It has been announced that the hit FOX show “American Idol” will be coming to an end next year in 2016. The singing competition reality show will be in its 15th year by the time it retires, and it is going to be a sad day for the crew, hosts, and all of the hopeful fans who were hoping to be a part of the show eventually.

In an article found on reddit and written by NBC Chicago, it was stated that there are just too many other music related shows that compete with American Idol to make it not soar quite the way it used to in the beginning of the 2000s. There are going to be many sad people on board with this and it is likely to bring a whole lot of new and old guest stars who wish to be a part of the big farewell.

That makes someone wonder what the lines will be like to get on the show. Jason Halpern isn’t really sure what to expect, and those on TheRealDeal.com have no clue either. It is a great marketing technique, as it will obviously draw in several thousands more to try out to be the next American Idol. They are saying that they will keep the format the same as they had it this year, which many people favor over how it used to be. It focuses more on who’s moving forward as opposed to who is getting left behind, so it isn’t quite as negative.
