That headline might seem like a group of random words strung together, but there’s a story here, and with the story, a lesson we didn’t even know we needed.
In case you’re wondering where Stephen “the Blond Baldwin” has been, he’s been over in the UK, on Celebrity Big Brother. The vocal born-again Christian was recently evicted from the house (together with “Thong Song” auteur Sisqo). But, as Baldwin recently shared with Monsters and Critics, a recent meeting with Miley Cyrus led him to make an inking decision that he’d live to regret.
Stephen’s kids are huge Hannah Montana fans, so when Miley and Stephen met at the White House (you may want to take a moment to consider the impact of that sentence), instead of getting Miley’s autograph for the kiddies, this happened:
She saw a tattoo of my wife’s name on my arm and told me I should get a Hannah Montana tattoo. I said if she gave me a guest-starring role on her show, I’d get the tattoo.’ He added: ‘I’ve already got 17 tattoos so another one doesn’t make a difference. I got a small one of her initials and next time I saw her, I showed her and she nearly fell off her chair. It’s unfortunate, I’ve lived up to my part of the bargain but she’s not yet to give me a guest-star role on her show.’
What’s missing from this story? Miley’s agreement and the handshake. But still, Stephen Baldwin has taught us all another lesson we didn’t know we needed: You can’t bully celebs into giving you a part on their shows, even if you are a celeb, by tattooing their initials on your skin.
