Women in America are always trying to be like the latest model or star on the cover of their favorite magazine. The worst part is that men and women in general use these magazines covers as a gauge to what women should look like. The most current magazine “Oops” was a blessing in disguise for both the celebrity involved and society.
Kardashian was set to appear on the cover of Complex magazine, only when the mag posted its images online, it accidentally posted the un-Photoshopped version of Kim’s cover shot. Complex eventually yanked the photo and replaced it with the altered version, which cropped off inches from Kardashian’s legs, smoothed her cellulite, whittled her waist and brightened (whitened?) her skin, but they didn’t make the switch fast enough. Oops.
Kardashian responded on her blog, saying:
So what: I have a little cellulite. What curvy girl doesn’t!? How many people do you think are photoshopped? It happens all the time!
I’m proud of my body and my curves and this picture coming out is probably helpful for everyone to see that just because I am on the cover of a magazine doesn’t mean I’m perfect.
Let me remind readers that cellulite? Is not a sign that you’re fat. Kardashian’s response is admirably restrained in light of the criticism she’s getting, but of course, like all stars accused of the crime of fatness, she reminds her fans that she’s back on the skinny bus bandwagon:
At the same time as this Complex shoot, I was gearing up for my fitness DVD and you should see my thighs now!!! Haha! This all motivates me to stay in the gym because my goal this year has been to get in better shape and tone up! Hard work pays off (source)!
Yes even celebrities are human! However, it takes a “big person” to show their flaws and love what the maker gave them!
