Celebrities Untouched

It has been a known fact that celebrities go through major extremes to look  perfect in cover shoots, magazines, red carpet events, etc. Digital retouching has been a part of entertainment industry since day 1.However most celebs have kept it on the down low, in order to keep their picture perfect images alive. Well times are changing, and A list celebrities are wanting the world to know that what we see in the magazines are anything but real.

Britney Spears, who is the spokesperson for Candies  is unhappy with the latest campaign ads released because of the extensive retouching. The unretouched photos of the ad recently leaked out this week, and sources are saying that Ms. Spears has leaked the photos herself, in order to show how superficial the entertainment industry really is.

I think she looks beautiful in her original photo. I can see why she was upset about them airbrushing so much of this.

Another star that is fighting back retouching is Jessica Simpson. For the May issue of Marie Claire magazine  the singer went makeup free and airbrush free.With all the controversy surrounding her weight Jessica wanted to squash all the haters, and let them know that she is 100% happy with who she is. Of course there are those who are saying that she isn't makeup free in the magazine, however I believe her. Check out the photos

What do you guys think of all this?

  1. I really don't care because we should all know by now that anything to do with photos are re-touched etc . They've been doing for ages nothing new and most of these celebs have went along with it for years too.
