Some people argue that Photoshop is evil, and a tool used to promote an unhealthy body image that woman should look a specific way. While I don’t entirely disagree with this assessment, The Daily Mail is reporting that undoctored photos from Madonna‘s W magazine photo shoot from 2009 have leaked onto the web, and if a little Photoshop here and there means we never have to see a topless Madonna’s best impression of an angry gargoyle glaring down at you, then by all means, Photoshop ALL THE THINGS.
The candid snaps show the Queen of Pop lounging around on a sofa wearing a see-through bra and a black thong. In another shot, Madge is seen topless facing a mirror as she changes into an outfit. The behind-the-scenes photos were taken in a hotel room during a December 2008 magazine shoot in Brazil. Three years on, the unflattering shots have made their way on to various internet blogs showing the 53-year-old singer – then aged 50 – in a series of unladylike positions.
I know it’s unfair to compare a 53-year-old Madonna to 20-year-old starlets, until you remember that Madonna is trying to be a 20-year-old starlet. At some point, everyone has to look in the mirror and say “I’m not 26 anymore. I can’t pull that shit off”, then go about aging gracefully and accepting their body for what it is rather than what they wish it still was. Or you can bang a slew of 24-year-old boytoys while spreading your legs on your albums like you’re trying to shake the dust and cobwebs out of your Charleston Chew.
