Karol G is not having it!
The Columbian singer made waves when she took to Instagram to call out GQ Mexico for allegedly photoshopping her entire face without her consent — so far as to be basically unrecognizable! On Thursday, the 32-year-old posted a gorg makeup-free selfie to her grid — but also included her recent cover of the magazine in the carousel for comparisons. In the caption, she wrote in Spanish:
“I don’t even know where to start this message … Today my GQ magazine cover was made public, a cover with an image that DOES NOT represent me.”
She went on to say she’s very happy with herself — and she’s got no idea why anyone would want to change her:
“My face does not look like this, my body does not look like that and I feel very happy and comfortable with how I look naturally. I thank the magazine for the opportunity because I was very happy when they confirmed it would be there, but even with making clear my discontent with the number of edits they did to the photo, they didn’t do anything about it — as if to look good I needed all those changes”
She told them NO and they ran it anyway!? Ugh, so frustrating.
The TQG singer finished up her post by saying she knows she might get in trouble for calling the magazine out, but she doesn’t care:
“I understand the repercussions this can have, but beyond feeling it’s disrespectful to me, it’s to the women that every day we wake up looking to feel comfortable with ourselves despite society’s stereotypes.”
Ch-ch-check out the wild differences in the pics (below):
That cover looks nothing like her! The eyes, the eyebrows, the drastic cheekbone changes — we legitimately would not have realized that was her! She’s absolutely stunning just as she is! Why on earth would they want to change her??
In the comments, other celebs and fans defended the X Si Volvemos songstress. Bebe Rhexa wrote:
While rapper The Game said what we’re all thinking:
“You are naturally beautiful and whoever is responsible for that should be fired!!”
Exactly! See some other reactions to the post (below):
“The fastest way for an editor to throw away his work, hopefully it serves to normalize bodies and faces to the natural, no more stereotypes.”
“Thank you for inviting the world to be real and not to be afraid.”
“Well said, it’s not you and it doesn’t represent you.”
“Thank you for being an example and such a great inspiration!”
What do U think, Perezcious readers? This certainly isn’t the first time a celeb has fallen victim to a photoshop fail… though usually it’s their own doing! Sound OFF with your thoughts in the comments (below).
