Yet another incident of extreme Lady Gaga photoshopping has emerged. Are there any images of her which aren't doctored?
Remember when those untouched Versace images of Lady Gaga cropped up? The Lady’s highly anticipated Spring 2014 Versace campaign turned out to be a bigger hoax than Ray Santilli’s alien autopsy. Everything from her skin colour to the texture of her hair was altered in the images, but the most confusing thing was that she had only recently slammed the use of photoshopping in regards to the her December Glamour cover.
In many recent images Lady GaGa's body has been photoshopped beyond all recognition
At the time of the cover Gaga had said, “I felt my skin looked too perfect. I felt my hair looked too soft. I do not look like this when I wake up in the morning…I don’t even look like this,” in reference to her Gaga-esque hair and hair and makeup. She further added, “It is fair to writer about the change in your magazines. But what I want to see if the change on your covers…When the covers change, that’s when culture changes,” before encouraging people to “fight back against the forces that make them feel like they’re not beautiful.”
That’s all well and good, but followed by her heavily photoshopped Versace campaign (yes, we understand it was for a high fashion shoot), and then adding insult to injury yet another photoshopping saga has begun to emerge. Some untouched photos from a recent V Magazine shoot have leaked and the photoshopping on these images may be the most extreme we’ve seen so far.
With shaded adding to make her stomach look more concave and her skin darkened to look as though she has been lying on a beach in Saint Tropez for a month, she certainly cuts an imposing and slender figure. Most worrisome, however, are the ribs which have been photoshopped on to jut out of her side. In the untouched images Lady Gaga’s ribs are barely visible, but in the finished photos they are practically the focal point of the piece.
Lady Gaga is known for her revealing outfits, implying she is not at all ashamed of her body
Lady Gaga’s breasts also appear to have been slightly lifted and her thighs lengthened and slimmed. The obvious blemishes such as bruises and dimples (the ones that photoshop was actually invented for) have also been edited out, although it’s not them that we’re concerned with. So many conflicting statements from Lady Gaga, she encourages the world to fight photoshopping, yet all of her recent images seem to have been doctored.
Do you think that the editing was done with or without her knowledge?
