Britney Spears Sparks Fresh Photoshop Controversy

Published: Wednesday 11th Jan 2012 by Sam

Oh Britney, Britney. We were never supposed to know…

And yet how could we not after peeping these digitally enhanced shots of the singer in V Magazine? Spears is almost unrecognisable in the snaps, which were published to celebrate some of last year’s biggest tours and the folk who put them together.

However, it’s safe to say the shots are as legit as her “live” vocals.

The slimmer frame, head from another body, all ridiculous. One really has to wonder when this farce will end.

Peep some of the more “authentic” submissions from other artists below…

Your thoughts?

    Arghhhhh SO WHAT??

    I don’t get what’s wrong with artist being photoshopped and why are we even blaming britney when we should be blaming the person from V Magazine Who photoshopped her to MUCH!

    ALL our favs have been photoshopped and everyone needs to get over it =/ we are in 2012!! we should be used to this now/

    Britney is just amazing. Cant wait for her featurings on Minaj and Sabi new album.

    Agree with you how is it Britney’s fault if the magazine airbrushed her. If you remember Britney released photos which have not been photo shopped for her fans to see the difference. Everyone gets the airbrush treatment in Hollywood even you beloved faves Sam.

    Photoshop is horrible because it gives an unrealistic and unattainable portrayal of beauty that makes it hard for people (mostly young girls) a distorted view of what is beautiful and acceptable…Photoshop was created not so much to make celebs look better but to make fans feel inferior giving a pathology of false idolatry because the fans want to reach to something they know they never can attain…A little photoshop is like okay, i can understand you want to look your best, but this looks like they put someone else’s body with her head on it…If Britney did want this to happen she could have stopped it. It is her image, and im sure she is apart of final say. If the general public likes to be lied to and bamboozled then that’s your prerogative, but that s*** aint cool with me…

    And that is her problem because…please Sam, tell me, in this modern day, who isn’t photoshopped? Everyone knows it’s her, and if you’ve seen her body recently you’ll know that she looks foiiiiiiine.

    If you idiots bother researching Britney Spears you will know that she has lost a hell of a lot of weight for her ‘Femme Fatale tour’ and upcoming wedding!!!
    And as for the dig at her voice – she’s been around for thirteen years and sold 200,000,000 records worldwide… you NEED to be able to sing to last THAT long and sell that legendary amount!!
    And ‘unrecognisable’ is just pathetic – anybody can see that’s Britney unless they’ve been on another planet for thirteen years.
    You are only posting this article because it makes a ‘good story’!!!

    I could care less.

    Britney’s still going back to her old body.

  19. BRITNEEEYY>>>> January 11, 2012

    Photoshopped to death and rather weirdly and to be frank ugly and chipmunky…

    … But it still looks better than the other two. And just better in general. Besides it’s not like she had a say in what to photoshop or not. 😉

    celebs wanting to look their best is one thing; but being airbrushed all to hell is another. removing a big ugly carbuncle or if their face breaks out like a road map on picture, day some touch up is fine. artists allowing mags to splash images of them on covers that bear only a slight resemblance to them reeks of vanity and huge amounts of wishful thinking. besides, seeing them televised or live(although made up) can be somewhat of a letdown.

    of course, britney isn’t the only guilty one. xtina just did a shoot for marie claire displaying a fake ass massively photoshopped cover.

    both christina, britney and many others look good enough naturally without all the ‘phoney-shop’!

    Hot body B

  22. Lucy January 11, 2012

    Nevermind Britney… what the hell did they do to Katy Perry’s knees? And it’s like they just gave up photoshopping Kesha’s arm halfway through lol. It’s budget photoshop all around, even I could’ve done a better job.

  23. aduckisaduck January 11, 2012

    WOW, this is BAD photshop. I can’t stop looking at it, it’s like a paper doll they pieced together different body part. Where to begin, the head is lopsided, there is someone (not in the picture) arm behind her right arm, her top half is not lined up with her bottom half at the waist, the shadows around her head does not match anyone around her, And if you look at te shadowing the people on her left do not seem like they were shot the same time as the peple on her right. Jeez whoever did this shoiuld be fired. A child could do a better job with real sissors and paste

  24. Saetana January 12, 2012

    It looks like they took a picture of her head and stuck it on a different picture of her body, that is some of the worst photoshopping I’ve ever seen, it looks totally unrealistic – even in photoshopping terms. Her team should keep tighter control and not let images like this be used for publicity, it only attracts criticism. I’m not saying none of the others have used photoshop or airbrush but, if they have, at least it doesn’t look obvious ;o)
