SELF Magazine Photoshops Kelly Clarkson

The cover of most women magazines always have some gorgeous actress or model gracing their pages. I'm not saying it's wrong, but sometimes I'd like to see more real women on the pages of our magazines. They are supposed to represent women, right? Or are they just supposed to represent what women should look like?

Anyway, SELF magazine recently had rocker Kelly Clarkson represent on their cover. Yet, there is a difference on how she looks on the cover compared to how she really looks.

The Editor-in-Chief Lucy Danziger stood up for her decision in Photoshopping the singer. She said this to ET: "SELF magazine inspires and informs our 6 million readers each month to reach their all around best," Lucy adds. "Kelly Clarkson exudes confidence, and is a great role model for women of all sizes and stages of their life. She works out and is strong and healthy, and our picture shows her confidence and beauty. She literally glows from within. That is the feeling we'd all want to have. We love this cover and we love Kelly Clarkson."

Clarkson has actually admitted to not caring about Photoshop in her blog. Yet, my question is was it still right to Photoshop her? Especially when this woman exudes so much pride in her image. What do you think?
