Yes, you read that title correctly. A current pop star recently went on Twitter to call out some touched up photos of herself. Lorde is a teenage pop singer from New Zealand. Her first hit "Royals" was all over the radio and her follow up single is doing just as well. She recently tweeted these two photos of herself from the exact same event.
" i find this curious - two photos from today, one edited so my skin is perfect and one real. remember flaws are ok :-)"
As the mother of 2 young girls I find this so refreshing. Everywhere my girls look there are overly photoshopped photos giving my girls the impression that only perfection is acceptable in our society. Photoshopping images has gotten so out of hand that Target was recently in hot water for having this picture in an ad.
Talk about unrealistic expectations!
So now besides loving Lorde's music (it's a really great album) I love the message she is putting out there. Instead of insisting on photoshopped images, she is speaking out against them and is proud of the real her.
What's your take on Lorde's anti-photoshop perspective?
