Nelly Furtado's Off-Beat Accessory

11/03/2006 at 04:30 PM ET

MTV Awards shows are always the place to try out unorthodox fashion (and in some cases, unorthodox behavior). Last night’s European Music Awards were no exception, but Nelly Furtado’s arms really caught our eye and got us scratching our heads. The sultry Canadian singer paired her slinky satin gown with airbrushed faux-tattoos of flames going up and down her arms. Nelly’s rep tells us she wanted to “look like a Goddess with all the pyro-tech in her performance and white flowing dress.” Tell us: what do you think of Nelly’s out-there accessory? Is this super-hot or a burn-out?

Ok women do NOT look trashy with tattoos…just the way a woman dresses makes her trashy. I know lots of people that have tattoos that are doing pretty well in the world. This is my opinion but it kind of pisses me off that a celeb would do something like that to grab attention to herself and try to “fit in” with everyone else getting tattoos. I know it’s not permanent but it’s still the idea of it. And why in God’s name would you wear that dress with it? Atleast wear one thats close to the color of the “tattoo”. Damn celebrities are stupid.

COME ON, nelly would look heaps better without that rash looking tattoo her outfit is nice, nelly is a cool female, but tattoos are ugly honestly, it shows no style and its terrible on both females and males, yes she tried something new, and you learn from your mistakes.
