Justin Bieber may not know what the Sistine Chapel is, but we’ve found one teen pop superstar who paid attention in history class.
Miley Cyrus debuted a brand new tattoo while leaving her pilates class in Hollywood on July 10, and it features a quote by former U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt. Her new tat reads, "So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."
As E! Online shares, the line is from a 1910 speech in which Roosevelt asserts that “it is not the critic who counts,” but the man who is brave enough to step up and take action.
The full quote reads, “The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”
In Miley’s case, she’s living her life to the fullest and working hard, and the people who stand around and judge her every action don’t matter to her.
This new tatt is one of many for the star. Others include:
- The Roman numerals VIIXCI on her right forearm
- “Love Never Dies” on her left bicep
- A Native American dreamcatcher on the right side of her ribcage
- “Just Breathe” on her chest
- “Love” on her right ear
- A heart, an “equals” sign, and numerous other tiny finger tattoos
