Kelly Clarkson airbrushed so she’ll ‘look her best’

By: The Superficial / August 12, 2009

Self magazine is under fire for its blatant airbrushing of Kelly Clarkson on the cover of the September issue. But editor-in-chief Lucy Danziger defended the magazine against critics and stands by the cover. People reports:

“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.”
Calling Clarkson “the picture of confidence,” Danzinger writes, “I think this photo is the truest we have ever put out there on the newsstand.”

WHAT?! Are you kidding me? You could’ve Photoshopped Megatron fighting a unicorn in place of her stomach, and it would’ve looked more “true” than morphing Kelly Clarkson into a size one. Seriously, George Lucas wouldn’t even pull that shit, and he’s so gay for CGI, he’d marry it if it were legal in California.
