Photoshop

Okay, I know that EVERY picture of every celebrity that is taken profesionally (with their permission) and appears in a publication is photoshopped. Does there come a point when enough is enough? Kelly Clarkson looks fine before the photoshopping. Is she a size 0? No. Is that okay? Yes. She is certainly not obese. What is the message that we send our youth when this much photoshopping is done?

  1. Thank you! In one place we have Dr. Phil telling us it's okay if you're not a size 0 and then the magazine says it's okay, but then they photoshop everyone and tell you how to eat on a diet. I don't get it!

  2. I've got those same big legs! So I certainly hope its okay! You just can't help what your mama (or in my case grandmama) gave you!

    I think they should have left her photo alone. Esp. since it was on "Self" magazine. Maybe they should change the name to "Not Self"

  3. I think it's awful. She may be used to it b/c she is in the media spotlight, but it does send an awful message to those who don't realize that everyone in Hollywood is photoshopped! I'd rather just look like me than try to be eating disorder skinny for sure!

    Self did take a HUGE hit on the Today show for this and all they could say was "Well, the satin fabric is not very forgiving so we helped her out a bit". If that's the truth, then don't put her in SATIN!!!! Too bad they took away more than a few wrinkles on her tummy!

  4. I so agree with you, but she could afford to get more figure flattering clothes..
