5. Kelly Clarkson
Sometimes, photoshop is used to merely smooth out a few lines, take out a shadow or two, to make the image more aesthetically pleasing. And then sometimes they get a bit too trigger happy and essentially give the individual a new body – like with Kelly Clarkson. Clarkson has struggled with her weight throughout her career, and has always been outspoken about the fact that it’s her voice that truly matters, not the package it comes in. Her fans have cheered on her body confidence statements, and this photoshopping undermines all that. They’ve done fairly standard things, like giving her blonde hair a bit of extra dimension and amping up the color of her clothing to make it more vivid and crisp. However, they’ve also taken about four dress sixes off her frame. Doing something as drastic as that sends a strong message – and not a positive one.
