Kelsea Ballerini Shares the Story Behind Her Very First Tattoo

Kelsea Ballerini is dishing on her very meaningful tattoo.

In her new interview with Shape magazine, the 27-year-old country singer revealed the story behind getting her very first tattoo, which is ‘How sweet the sound’ on her left forearm near her wrist.

“This is a story I’ve never told publicly. The day before my first photo shoot, I panicked because I wanted a tattoo but didn’t have one yet,” Kelsea shared. “And I was like, What if this single [‘Love Me Like You Mean It’] works and people start to follow me? Then all of a sudden, I get a tattoo. People will be like, ‘She’s going off the deep end.’”

She continued, “So I went to the tattoo parlor the day before that shoot and got a tattoo. It was just this youthfully innocent way of saying, ‘I’ve got to be who I am from the beginning of this.’”

Kelsea Ballerini Perfectly Shuts Down Twitter User's Pregnancy Question

Kelsea Ballerini looked amazing on the red carpet at the 2020 CMA Awards last night, but she unfortunately subject to an inappropriate question about her body.

In a now deleted tweet, a Twitter user asked if she was pregnant.

“I’m sure you mean well, but it’s incredibly insensitive to ask or assume if another woman is pregnant. I’m not, by the way. Just carrying around my organs. But if I were, I’d want to share that in my own time when I felt ready. Let’s not judge bloat levels on the internet,” Kelsea posted.

Kelsea and her husband Morgan Evans got married back in December of 2017.

Kelsea Ballerini Was Added to the CMA Awards 2020 Lineup Just Hours Before the Show - Here's Why

Kelsea Ballerini walks the carpet in a floral dress at the 2020 CMA Awards on Wednesday (November 11) at the Music City Center in Nashville, Tenn.

The 27-year-old singer will be performing her song “Hole in the Bottle” during the event tonight and she was only added to the lineup earlier today.

Kelsea was added to the lineup to replace Florida Georgia Line, who dropped out due to a positive COVID-19 test. Previously, she expressed her disappointment for being snubbed by the CMA Awards after receiving no nominations this year.

“Putting out an album and working as hard as I can, even through a pandemic, I just felt disappointed to not be a part of a community that I work really hard to stand up for and be a face of and make music that I really do hope represents the genre well,” Kelsea told People back in September. “I just felt disappointed, and that’s okay. That’ll make me make a better record next time.”

“Not that awards don’t matter, because I really do think they do, and I think that’s why I’m disappointed,” she added. “Honestly, it helped me refocus on what matters to me, and that truly is making the best music that I love and that I feel good about and making it for people that will show up for me in seats when I’m able to go back on tour.”

FYI: Kelsea is wearing a full Dolce&Gabbana look.

Kelsea Ballerini Very Politely Told Critics To 'Shut Up' After They Hated On Her CMT Awards Performance with Halsey

Kelsea Ballerini shines like a diamond in a cute silver outfit backstage at the 2020 iHeartCountry Festival held at The Steel Mill in Nashville, Tenn., on Friday (October 23).

The 27-year-old “hole in the bottle” singer took the stage to perform a few of her hit songs, just after performing with Halsey at the 2020 CMT Awards earlier in the week.

After her Coyote Ugly inspired performance with Halsey aired, Kelsea took note of all the critics of the performance and kindly told them to “shut up.”

“After reading way too many comments, I’d like to remind people that there are different kinds of country music,” Kelsea wrote on her Instagram. “And none are more ‘real’ than others when it comes from an honest place, that women can wear whatever we want and shouldn’t be called names and criticized for it, and that if you don’t have something nice to say, politely shut up.”

But that wasn’t it, there were also claims of lip-syncing.

“Here’s the thing,” one follower wrote in her comments. “To me the issue isn’t the outfit. My issue is the lip-synching. Every performance last night was lip synced and it was very obvious.”

Kelsea replied, “Not true, every performance was prerecorded because, ya know, COVID.”
