I’m sure you’ve all heard about the controversy surrounding the cover of the September issue of Self Magazine. Everyone was wondering if the pictures of Kelly had been altered or not and now Self is saying they did indeed retouch the image saying;
“Yes. Of course we do retouching,” Danziger writes in a post on Self.com. “Did we alter her appearance? Only to make her look her personal best.”
I was actually just at a Kelly Clarkson concert recently and knew they had to have done some retouching without them even saying so. She is a beautiful girl, but she’s definitely not as in shape/toned as the cover of Self portrays her. What do you think of magazines that retouch celebrity images? Does it motivate you to want to look like your favorite celebrity? Or would you be happier knowing what your favorite celebrity really looks like? I would personally like to see untouched pictures more often. I mean it’s not fair. I could be on the cover of some magazine as a Fitness inspiration if I just had a little altering with photoshop *laughs*.
