Entertainer Quickie: Rihanna gets a “Thug Life” tattoo and Pat Sajak drunk on Wheel of Fortune
Rihanna Gets a “Thug Life” Tattoo
The 23-year-old Rihanna has been showing off her new ink via Twitter ever since Wednesday. In pink on her knuckles, the famous singer now has “Thug Life” permanently etched, apparently an homage to the late rapper Tupac Shakur. Tupac, who was shot and killed in Las Vegas in 1996, had the famous phrase tattooed across his stomach. This tattoo marks another in her reportedly 15 tattoos, including a gun on her ribcage, stars down the back of her neck, and words “rebelle fleur” (French, meaning rebellious flower).
She flooded her Twitter page with posts like:
“All these bitches screaming that 2pac back #THUGLIFE”
“Err’body has an opinion, but yall know what yall can do with them!!! #THUGLIFE”
“I’m thinking I shoulda got a tear drop instead!!! #THUGLIFE maybe next time”
Rihanna posted a slew of photos on her Twitter page, including 67-year-old actor Danny Trejo (“Machete”), who wasalso in tattoo artist Mark Mahoney’s shop during Rihanna’s inking. Tweeting, “Look who’s in the #TATTOO parlor…Danny Trejo #G4L p.s. Look up his story!”
Pat Sajak – Drunk on Wheel of Fortune
Pat Sajak, host of the long-running game show Wheel of Fortune since 1981, has told an ESPN talk show that in the beginning of his career he would often host the famous show drunk.
On “Dan Le Batard is Highly Questionably,” Sajak joked about his crazier past, revealing that he and sidekick Vanna White frequented a Mexican restaurant near NBC’s Burbank studio, where the two would get friendly with some margaritas. “Vanna and I would go across and have two or three or six and then come and do the last shows and have trouble recognizing the alphabet. They’re really good tapes to get a hold of.”
Having grown older, Sajak is now strictly a sober host, saying, “I would be hesitant to have anything to drink now.”
Since it’s obvious Sajak won’t be recording any more episodes while intoxicated, you may want to hunt down that old footage and if you find any, make sure to post it below.
