These days, it’s nearly impossible to see a photo of a celebrity — or for that matter, anyone — that hasn’t been edited. From retouching apps to Instagram filters and Photoshop, seeing unretouched, unedited photos has become a thing of the past, and frankly, it’s sad. Lorde isn’t the first celebrity to speak out against Photoshop, joining the ranks of stars like Lady Gaga, Beyonce, and even Ashley Benson of “Pretty Little Liars.” We’re glad that these ladies aren’t okay with false images being portrayed in the media. Hopefully, their young fan base will hear the positive message that flaws are, in fact, okay.
