Britney Spears is on the cover of the new issue of Lucky (the party issue!), which the magazine just posted online yesterday. However, the X Factor judge's fans were not amused. The cover, like almost every magazine cover in the last decade, appears to be heavily Photoshopped, and it looks like Brit is wearing a wig (which is a thing she admits to doing occasionally).
Buzzfeed rounded up some of the angriest tweets from Britney fans, which included "Did Britney even show up for the photoshoot or did you just photoshop her face on a body?" and "Please fire your team in charge because that is a fucking disaster." Lucky later responded, "Thank you all for sharing your thoughts on our cover! As always, we will share with our team and we're sorry to have let some of you down."
Do you agree with the readers who think this picture is Photoshopped into oblivion, or does it not even blip your Photoshop radar?
