"Kabbalah" claims another victim...
Well, now that Kabbalah has gone diluted new age, I guess we've got to expect this. Apparently (according to the San Francisco Examiner gossip page), Britney Spears got a Hebrew tattoo on the back of her neck. That's all fine, but evidently she went to a gentile tattooist.
Now, Britney thought her new ink said "new era," to symbolize her spiritual rebirth, but, apparently, the tattoo artist accidentally reversed the characters and the tattoo ended up making no sense at all. Not only that, the Kabbalah says that permanently marking the body in any way is a no-no.
Of course, this wasn't Britney's first foray into spiritual, yet foreign language tattooing:
This is Britney's second botched tattoo. Two years ago, Britney thought she was getting the Japanese symbol for "mysterious" on her hip but found out later that it actually says "strange."
Britney appears to be enrolled not only in Kabbalah classes, but also in the "Michael Jackson School for Pop Stars Who Want to Lose Popularity and Get Creepy."
