In an uncommon celebrity move, Britney Spears allowed a couple original "raw" images from her photo shoot for Candies to be published alongside the heavily airbrushed versions. . . We rarely get to see these before/afters when it comes to magazine shoots. I honestly wish that there were more examples of this available. I would love the affirmation that these women are in fact normal too. The images below are the only ones i was able to find when i searched google on this topic.
I understand that magazines often/always smooth out skin and fix shadows, but to drastically change the shape of a person's body is just insane! I wonder if these celebrities/models even have a say in the issue. . . would you want your body digitally tightened if it were to be viewed by millions of Americans in a magazine? I hate to say it but i think i would. If the shit-storm Mischa Barton has received over her less-than firm backside is any indication of what would fall upon me, i don't want that. I don't deserve that. I don't need fucking Perez Hilton telling the world what i already think about myself.
What do you guys think? Do you want to see more of the real thing, or are you perfectly happy with the perfected verions. . .
