miley cyrus heart anatomy tattooMiley Cyrus may be in the middle of breakup heartache and canceling wedding plans, but that didn't stop her from getting a bizarre heart tattoo this weekend. Symbolism, anyone?

The 20-year-old pop singer, who is rumored to have split from fiancé Liam Hemsworth, apparently found time to visit the infamous tattoo artist Kat Von D Friday afternoon. She now sports a copy of Da Vinci's famous drawing of the anatomy of the heart -- two chambers and all! -- on her forearm. Yay! And huh?

Me smells a diversion tactic here ... Wasn't it just the other day that she had some lame excuse about why she wasn't wearing her engagement ring anymore?

"Just did the RADDEST tattoo on @MileyCyrus," Von D tweeted. "A miniature rendition of a da Vinci anatomical heart!"

M'kay. Sure. So what are we supposed to make of THIS, Miss Miley?

Well let's see. Her beau Liam is still reportedly half a world away in his native Australia visiting family. She is still engagement ring-less, which she implied on Twitter was because she was getting it fixed. And now she's gotten inked with a heart -- not a cute little romantic red one but the one you see in a biology textbook. Oh, but it's Leonardo's illustration, so that makes it acceptable and totally not weird at all.

Uh huh.

Look, I'm the first to admit that all of us who write entertainment gossip love jumping on the latest celebrity rumor. And if y'all are honest, you'd admit that you love reading about it. But this one does kind of sound like it has legs. Miley isn't even legal yet, for crying out loud. And she certainly acts her age. No one REALLY thought the girl was truly ready to walk down the aisle, did they? Liam's said to be fed up with all her "hard partying." Also he didn't seem too gung-ho about her increasingly punked-out look either, if you believe the buzz.

Meanwhile, her fiancé is a total hunky babe with a cool accent whose star is rising FAST since he was in The Hunger Games. And Hannah Montana was supposedly jealous of his "wandering eye." It could be totally made up, sure, or at the very least, exaggerated. OR it could be pretty darn close to the truth. My vote is for the latter.

Of course you could believe Miley when she sympathized with someone lamenting not being able to wear her diamond ring because it had to be fixed. "Ugh that's the worst!" Cyrus tweeted. "I just had a similar situation except when it happens to me then everyone says my wedding is off."

Either way, Miley knows that getting yet another tattoo -- from Jesse James' ex, no less! -- will grab her some headlines that have nothing to do with her love life. So why not, right? Sounds like a good plan to me.

Why do you think Miley got this tattoo now? Do you believe the breakup rumors?
