Somehow Miley Cyrus seems to make headlines every week. This times it’s not for dancing on Robin Thicke with a sponge finger or kissing another popstar, it’s for a tattoo. Cyrus posted a picture on Instagram of her latest tattoo, which is a little unusual. According to Popsugar, Cyrus got her new ink on Friday, and it’s a cat crying on her inner bottom lip. The website speculates that the cat tattoo could be inspired by the cat graphic on stage during her performance at the American Music Awards.

While Cyrus was getting her tattoo, singer Chris Brown was being arrested. Brown had been ordered by California courts to receive anger management treatment at a Malibu therapy center, but was was kicked out for breaking the center’s rules, according to People. The singer, who once dated Rihanna, was taken into custody and is being held without bail in the Los Angeles County jail.

Last Monday night, every eye in America was glued to a TV screen as the ABC show “The Bachelor” came to an end. Juan Pablo Galavis, also known as “the worst bachelor ever,” ended the show with a shocking finale that led him to choose Nikki Ferrell as his lady. He decided not to propose, which is the typical outcome of the show, but rather just admit that he “really liked” the blonde beauty and wanted to spend more time with her. While things did get heated at “The Bachelor: After the Final Rose” live show in L.A, the couple did seem to be happy with one another and the outcome of the episode.

Also on the live show on Monday night, former contestant Andi Dorfman announced that she would take on the role of being the next bachelorette for the show that is set to premiere in May. A fan favorite from the beginning, Dorfman seems to be very sincere and genuinely excited about finding love on the show to come.
