LA Ink star Kat Von D has, as you know, broken up with Jesse James. In the wake of the break-up, she walked off the set of Good Day LA when they reportedly aired a segment of her tattooing James' face on her torso, after she asked them not to. But if there was any lingering curiosity in your mind as to what's going on in Von D's world right now, allow us to direct you to her Facebook page, where she has posted a half-assed explanation of her woes, overwrought with the insistence that despite being the star of her own reality TV show, she simply doesn't care what the world thinks about her:

Ratings. Sales. Publicity. The amount of followers I have on twitter. None of those things matters to me.

I don't know...it just seems as though those things not mattering might look more like not having a Twitter account, not having a reality show that relies on ratings to stay on the air, and not going on publicity tours.

Anyway, that's not to say that we don't feel for Von D...no doubt she's having a shitty week. But let's not let that, and walking off a TV show pass for pretending to be above fame...especially when you're already famous.
