If I didn’t already love Britney Spears before, I would now.
Somehow I missed when all these photos came out last year. As a proud super fan I hang my head in shame.
Brit Brit chose to release photos from her Kohl’s Candies photo shoot with the photoshopped and original version side by side. This was a bold move for a celebrity, especially since their physical appearance is so important to the industry. And being a living legend she is watched by the public more than the average celebrity as her social life and physical appearance are under constant evaluation. Course, Brit is naturally stunning so the changes were minor: slight thinning of the waist and legs, removal of tattoo and bruises, and tightening the clothing to her body.
So why not just release the non-photoshopped version? My guess is that to show the two side-by-side people will see the difference. A visual reminder of the editing that occurs with magazines and ads.
There are still a lot of people out there who are naive in thinking that they need a perfect body like the faces they see on screens. It’s a nice message to send out that even with professional trainers and nutritionists celebrity physiques are not as they appear.
