I have not posted in way too long, and for that, I apologize! It isn't until I start doing something like this, that I realize how little time I have for myself (or how bad my laptop at home is-so bad I can't even use it to get online to update my blog! I need a new one desparately)! Alas, I'm afraid this is not a top priority for me or my husband- he would MUCH rather buy a new tempur-pedic bed and is feverishly working/hustling his way towards that. I, on the other hand would like to work on plain old, boring paying off debt. You see, my husband happens to be an expert hustler and can wheel and deal his way from owning a ten speed bike all the way to owning a 2001 Monte Carlo. Which is what he owns now. And that's kind of how he got it. Not really. But basically. But he is trying to hustle his way to a new bed for us right now. So that's his main goal right now. Oh, my knight in shining - blue jeans.
Anyways... So something has been weighing heavily on my mind that I think deserves a bit of attention and discussion...The relentless, tasteless and shameless photoshopping and cropping of the ever beautiful celebrity/model in magazines and online images. I mean, seriously. This is just getting out of hand. As if celebrities aren't made pretty enough with hours worth of makeup and hair done on them before a photo shoot with designer clothes and stylists to boot, the magazines find reason to photoshop, edit, crop, do anything they can to make that person look perfect. Really? Is it really that bad to show them with a wrinkle? So what if their waist isn't 23 inches around? So what if they don't have chicken legs? And forget about them letting something like a little cellulite get past their keenly trained perfecting eyes. God. Forbid. You know what? I WANT to see a little cellulite on one of these models/actresses! I mean, I don't even know if these people are even what they look like in their pictures! For all I know, with all this photoshopping going on these people could be down right nasty in person. Before you know it people are going to be going to plastic surgeons asking to be sliced and diced so that their body can look like it did when they were 12 again! This is just getting out of hand.
Nobody living a normal life has thighs the same circumfrence as their calves. And why should someone feel the need to go on one of those "cleanses"drinking nothing but juiced grass for a week? You know what I wanna know? How many calories do these models eat a day? For real. In order to maintain those child sized waists there's no way they can be on a healthy diet. And when a celebrity who is on a normal diet is photographed for a magazine, can we NOT photoshop them to make them smaller than they really are? That's just stupid. Why create unrealistic ideals to what a woman "should" look like in order to be considered beautiful? Are ya with me ladies?
Can I get an Amen?
Thank you and good night!
