Oops, it looks like photo editors overdid it again with the Britney Spears photoshop, this time on the cover of Lucky magazine’s December issue. The singer and X-Factor judge has been outspoken about how photoshop has been used to alter her body and face in ads before, so we’re kind of surprised that the magazine was so heavy-handed with their treatment of her, well, everything. Fans are in uproar over her face, hair, body…you name it; it looks fake. Check out the photos Lucky released earlier this week:
Or are they just hyper-realistic paintings?
When Spears released the unretouched photos of herself from a Candie’s campaign a few years ago, she didn’t release an official statement to explain her motives. Some read it as rebellion against the advertising industry’s unrealistic depictions of women and exorbitant use of photoshop, others assumed it was just a vain attempt to grab more attention. We thought it was pretty cool. Now we just wish she’d require that magazine and advertisers actually limit the amount of retouching they do before she goes to print.
