- Britney Spears called out the paparazzi for editing photos of her.
- She said they edited them to make her look heavier.
Britney Spears just took a relaxing trip to Miami, but after some paparazzi photos of her on the beach surfaced, Britney took to Instagram with a “conspiracy theory” and to blast the photo agency for allegedly editing the photos.
Okay, so here’s the lowdown: Britney went to the beach with her boyfriend, Sam Asghari. While they were there, some paps took photos of her, which isn’t out of the ordinary for the “Me Against the Music” icon. But Britney said she noticed something about the photos that immediately caught her attention: She thought they were edited to make her look bigger.
In her Instagram videos, she said:
“A lot of fans, in our world today, they always are subject to really criticize people and say that the pictures and videos that they’re posting are either not on time or they’re fake. But no one ever really asks, ‘Are the paparazzi pictures fake, and do the paparazzi people do stuff to the pictures, and is the news really real?’ It’s a conspiracy theory that I’m actually interested in.”
In the last video, Britney showed off her bikini and added, “Yesterday, I went swimming. I look like I’m 40 pounds bigger than I am today. This is how I am right now, and I’m skinny as a needle. You tell me, what is real?”
Obviously, there’s nothing wrong with being bigger than Britney, but it has to be frustrating for her to think someone is editing photos of her to the point where she doesn’t recognize herself.
When the photo agency she accused of editing the pics (MEGA) heard about her Insta Story, it released a statement:
“We think Britney looks great and it’s ludicrous to suggest the photos or video were altered in any way. They were not. We shot thousands of photos of her over the weekend and are very happy to let her see the original files if she so wishes. It was good to see her happy and having fun and we wish her well.”
Okay, this is officially a case for the FBI or anyone who is really good at detecting Photoshop!
