A Cautionary Tweet



Recently sent to me, this picture posted by Russell Brand on his Twitter page shows his wife, Katy Perry, waking up without a scrap of make-up. As you can see below, this is not Ms. Perry usual look. Apparently, she was less than pleased with the posting, as it was quickly deleted from Russell's Twitter page. But as most of us hopefully know, the internet is an unforgiving environment. Once posted, never forgotten.

she looks like a real person in the first photo, the second looks like a wax sculpture...

This certainly makes her 'prepared' look very, very brunette barbie. Nothing on that second photograph looks real. (Except the gems in her earrings.) How much is her doing and how much is re-touching?

To be fair, I wouldn't look so hot if my other half slapped a flash in my mush at stupid o clock in the morning, but I've been told I look lovely when I've got a bit of lippy on. I reckon Katy will probably let Brand off. She must have read My Booky Wook to see what she was letting herself in for.

Stars they're just like us! Seriously I feel really bad when stuff like this happens or I see a magazine rating beach bodies.

I consider myself warned. Another reason to stay on this side of the lens.

Not sure which photo is worse. But, yes a good reminder.

Ru Paul once said everyone is in drag. We all put on our "face" in the morning and head off into the world. Why do we expect her to be different? Cindy Sherman clued into this years ago: the public fraud we all put on everyday. The role playing...etc. Fertile ground for photographic inquiry, no?

It would have been too cool if Katy allowed him to keep the photo up. She seems like a self-confident gal, so why not let a candid shot slip out?

...Then again, that's a pretty BAD photo (of anyone - celeb or not). I would hate a photo like that of me on the internet, so I can see why she would have made him take it down.

Wish I never saw that first photo, its totally ruined her for me now!

The second picture is almost a Photoshop Disaster: too much smoothing on the skin etc.

I think she looks more interesting in the first picture - amateur though it may look.

As my name is Kate Perry I am by now thoroughly sick of being asked if 'I kissed a girl". I don't like her music or her bubble gummy pop 'image'
This pic shows how completely waxy she is...
