Words I never imagined I'd write

Kudos to Britney Spears!

The link goes to a Daily Mail online article showing side-by-side original and airbrushed images that Britney Spears allowed to be released "in order to highlight the pressure exerted on women to look perfect."

Always interesting to see professional retouching in action.

I'd be more impressed if the differences in the pictures weren't so minute. She's extremely beautiful in the first picture and very slightly more perfect in the second one. Big deal.

I seem to recall that a few years back Jamie Lee Curtis did a photo spread showing herself without makeup in ordinary clothes compared to how she would look in a typical photo shoot. Now that took some courage, especially for a 40-something actress.

While it's true that she looks pretty good in her originals, they've slimmed her down, probably 2 sizes(!) in the airbrushed photos. You know we have a societal problem when even slim celebrities are presented that much smaller than they really are.

Of course the sidebar of the page you link to is full of stories that are part of the problem, including this one, which includes phrases like, "...fortunately wore a bra this time." A rag pretends to have moral fiber.

In any event, I thought the before pictures were sexier.
