LeAnn Rimes’ new tattoo is causing controversy with fans.
The singer went to celebrity tattoo artist Daniel Winter, aka Winter Stone, to get the words “god’s work” etched on her arm. Rimes showed off the “beautiful” finished product on social media.
As always, there were a few fans who took issue with one very particular detail.
The entire phrase was written in lowercase, and some weren’t pleased that she chose not to capitalize “god.” Many left responses in the vein of, “God should be capitalized” and “It’s God. Not god. FYI.” One said, “I luv it but God is GOD! God should have a capital G.”
But her supporters stood up for Rimes’ decision: One wrote, “I’m sure LeAnn knows the difference between God & god and she wrote it exactly how she wanted to, in how it’s meaningful to her.”
The wise response was well received by Rimes, who wrote back to the user with a heart emoji.

Cash did so for three weeks, on charts dated May 11, 18 and 25, 1959.

Country singer Chris Lane and reality television star of “The Bachelor” Lauren Bushnell are engaged!
The couple were at her family's home in Oregon for Father’s day when Lane popped the question in the form of a song.
Lane said, “I knew she wouldn’t want some elaborate crazy proposal. So, I decided to keep it pretty casual. I asked her parents for different places in Portland I could potentially take her to, but after a lot of thought I decided doing it at the family cookout would be the most laid-back setting and that she’d appreciate the simplicity of me proposing to her in her parents’ backyard.”
She obviously said yes and her father said it just added to his Father’s Day.
The couple has been together since the fall of 2018 and Bushnell was previously engaged to "The Bachelor’s" Ben Higgins.
Loretta Lynn ain't dying.
In response to a recent tabloid report claiming that the country icon is on her deathbed, she used Facebook to deny the rumor.
Lynn writes, "Well, through the years they've said I'm broke, homeless, cheating, drinking, gone crazy, terminally ill and even dead! Poor things can't ever get it right. I guess if those old pesky tabloids are harassing me then they're giving someone else a break ... but I'm about an inch from taking 'em to Fist City!"
Lynn's Facebook post includes a video in which she states: "Hey! This says I'm in a nursing home and I'm on my deathbed.. You're kidding me!"
"I ain't dead, and neither is Willie. Both of us are coming back to life, and we're gonna raise hell."
