Was Britney Spears Airbrushed To Look Skinnier In The "Work Bitch" Music Video?
It's no secret that visual media is touched up through the magic of Photoshop, but the taboo when it comes to video hasn't quite been crossed yet. Britney Spears' music video for "Work Bitch" is the latest in a string of high-profile videos from female pop-stars to be accused of digital "cosmetic enhancing." In this case, according to "before" photos unwittingly released by the digital effects house HOAX, which was hired to spruce up the video, Britney's body was slimmed down quite a bit in post-production.
The pics (which have since been deleted) appeared in Sound and Picture's profile on Hoax's work on the video. Because this is the Internet, the pictures have managed to live on despite being scrubbed.
What do you think, Instincters? Do you think Britney's body was touched up by digital artists for the "Work Bitch" video? Keep in mind this isn't the first time the pop star has courted this kind of controversy: the "Piece of Me" music video was blasted by critics after an "unedited" version was leaked displaying a thicker Brit Brit than the one found in the official release.
