Are We Actually Supposed to Believe This is Britney Spears?


Just stop.

Baby, don’t do this to us one more time.

We’d believe Britney was actually singing on stage before we’d believe this was an accurate picture of her.

We’d believe auto-tune was a natural skill. We’d believe she still missed JT. We’d even consider giving Crossroads an Oscar before we’d give in to admitting we thought this looked anything like the Britney Jean Spears who’s been in our lives for the past 15 years.

We know her face – why are you changing it?

Why are people so blatantly unafraid to put a lie on a cover page? Perhaps they expect we’re just photoshopping our own smiles at this point so it doesn’t really matter anyway…

Here’s the thing: Image isn’t everything – until you change it.

For a generation of millennials, this is the kind of expectation we’re allowing. This is the kind of beauty we seem to be good with.

This was on a health magazine.

How the hell is anyone supposed to get healthy these days when the reality is we don’t even know what it looks like anymore? 

Toxic. Circus. Crazy.

Call it what you want, but Oops, the Internet sure did do it again…
