Mean Betty on Jessica Simpson, Fergie, and Airbrushing
A study in contrast: Jessica on the cover of Marie Claire; Fergie on the cover of Elle.
Well, congratulations, Jessica Simpson!
No, you suspicious little things – Mean Betty is not being sarcastic. Mean Betty truly applauds Jessica Simpson for her new Marie Claire cover in which she appears without makeup or … GASP! … airbrushing! At least, this is the claim, and honestly, kittens ,it really does look to be at least mostly if not completely true.
Doesn’t she look great? And by great Mean Betty of course means … like a human woman? Mean Betty is tickled pink.
“I don’t have anything to prove anymore,” Jessica told the magazine. “What other people think of me is not my business.”
One small step for woman, one giant leap for womankind! (And womankind’s laugh lines, pores, crow’s feet, etc … )
Now, pets, let’s compare and contrast, shall we?
Is this Fergie – or a wax model of Fergie? You decide! (Or perhaps an oil painting?)
In the new edition of Elle, Fergie reveals the disturbing mind tricks she plays on herself to keep svelte, including convincing herself that French fries are “poison” and eating only one bite of dessert.
Poor Fergie. Why does she bother, when she’s just going to be airbrushed into oblivion anyway?
(And speaking of being airbrushed into oblivion, have you seen the new Good Housekeeping cover of – well, Mean Betty THINKS that’s our first lady?)
Darlings, Mean Betty doesn’t want the celebrities to stop being crazy, because they would be so much less amusing, BUT – Mean Betty wants everyone to go out and buy that copy of Marie Claire. We must support the celebs as they emerge from their fake plastic shells!
p.s. Speaking of plastic shells – poor Heidi Montag! She turned herself into a blow-up doll when she could have just taken off her makeup to get attention!
