Hardly 'Born This Way': Lady Gaga 'Constantly Airbrushed To Appear Thinner' In Behind The Scenes Video

31 August 2012

Lady Gaga regularly sings about being happy with the way she looks and how people should celebrate the fact that they were 'born this way', but this isn't the case it seems as it's been revealed that the singer was heavily photoshopped for her recent Vogue cover.

A new 'behind the scenes' video from the singer's photoshoot has shown exactly how the fashion magazine airbrushed Gaga's body to make her appear a lot thinner. The mag also touched up her 'wild hair' and erased any blemishes. Hmmmm...

We all know that magazine covers aren't shy of a bit of airbrushing...however, is the Gaga cover a step too far?

Though airbrushing is hardly uncommon in fashion magazines, Vogue's latest photo editing elicited an immediate backlash.

"Is this airbrushing too extreme or is all fair in the name of high fashion?" the New York Post asks.

"Sometimes I wonder why people bother with the original photography anymore when the end result is basically just a photo illustration," Buzzfeed's Amy Odell also wrote.

And she definitely has a point! What do you think?
