Kellie Pickler is baring her, ahem, assets for Maxim‘s “Salute to the Military” issue.

The American Idol alum turned country star dons lingerie-inspired looks by the likes of Jean Paul Gaultier, Prada and Hervé Léger in the latest issue of the men’s magazine.

She also reveals something else: her tattoos! “My grandmother would be mortified if she knew I had these,” Pickler says. “She’s passed away now, but she would say, ‘Tattoos are the devil!’ So my first tattoo, of course, was my grandma’s name. I also have stars on my left arm for my USO tours, but I’m missing two.”

And though the singer is happily married, she shares some advice about dating a country girl. “We might be [trouble], but we can also con our way out of it,” she jokes. “A country girl can talk her way out of a ticket. Not that I’ve ever been pulled over …”

“Officials at the Washington National Guard and Fairchild Air Force Base say two nursing mothers were wrong to be photographed in uniform breastfeeding their babies.”~Huffington Post

But a half dressed celebrity being held up by four men in uniform is OK, right?? Those two women were reprimanded for promoting a cause while in uniform. Wonder if these guys will be reprimanded for promoting magazine sales. And even though these may be models, it’s still a misuse of the uniform to me.

Love her! She looks fantastic in the photos. She has done 5 USO tours thus far, which is a lot more than most celebrities do. You go girl!

Kellie looks great but putting a tattoo of your grandmother’s name on your body is not very respectful. Especially, when you know she didn’t like them.

I totally agree Reeta. How dare they!
Kellie looks great from the neck down. What in the world did she do to her face?? Or WHY??? She used to look so fresh faced!

The reason the military is upset with the breast feeders is because they are not wearing the uniform properly not because they are feeding their kids. This photo the men look to be wearing their uniforms correctly. Ms pickler is entertaining the troops not whipping out her juggs in protest. She looks fabulous!!!!
