I know that Photoshop is just a way of celebrity-magazine life. And I have to begrudgingly respect SELF magazine for coming out and admitting that they messed with Kelly Clarkson's bod on their latest cover, which looks like this:
Which is pretty not similar to her real body, which actually looks like this:
(Sidenote: When I searched for "Kelly Clarkson" on Google Images, "Kelly Clarkson fat" came up as a suggestion. Oof.) Anyway, I guess Clarkson is fine with SELF's editing, too, because she hasn't come out and lambasted them or anything like that.
I just have one ickle, little qualm: The fact that SELF knew what they were doing all along and still used the headline "Stay true to you and everyone else will love you, too!" Awful, ironic coincidence? I think not.
