Lorde Stands Up Against Photo Airbrushing Like A Boss
Lorde is awesome. There is no doubt about this. You can’t argue it, and even if you tried, you’d likely lose, because what isn’t there to like? She’s talented, ambitious, creative…we could go on and on with accolades, but instead, we’ll just tell you this awesome story.
So Lorde found a photo of her from a show she’d recently done, only something was a bit off. You see, she realized pretty quickly that whoever posted it had heavily Photoshopped it, taking out blemishes that happen to adorn the 17 year old’s face. Pretty common at that age, and she’s clearly not embarrassed by it.
She took to her twitter to purposefully show her fans that not only is she “flawed” (if you even want to call it that) but that it’s ok, and to not be ashamed about it. She rocks, end of story.
i find this curious – two photos from today, one edited so my skin is perfect and one real. remember flaws are ok :-) pic.twitter.com/PuRhxt2u2O
