Miley Cyrus took to the stage at last night's MTV VMAs, performing new song "Slide Away" for the first time and showing off two new tattoos. One, "1961" on the side of her left hand, may well be a tribute to dad Billy Ray and his year of birth. Another, however, is definitely linked to The Pixies. According to People, Miley had “My head was feeling scared, but my heart was feeling free,” lyrics from Pixies song “The Thing,” inked on her left arm.

Of course, earlier this month it was announced that Miley was separating from husband Liam Hemsworth. The pair were together for around a decade, on and off, and he subsequently filed for divorce. How this links to a 1990 “Velouria” B-Side, who knows? Maybe it doesn't! Regardless, check out "The Thing" below.
