Lucky Magazine sorry for Britney Spears’ terrible photoshop, bewigged cover

Does that image above look like Britney Spears at all? Like if you just saw this photo on its own, would you realize who it was supposed to be? I’m not sure I would. On the December issue of Lucky Magazine, Britney looks like a different person, and she’s obviously wearing a really cheap wig that’s giving her Teresa Giudice’s hairline. Someone Photoshopped the features on Britney’s face so much we can’t recognize her, and one of her eyes looks bigger than the other, right? Well Lucky Magazine may realize that their Photoshop artist did a hack job on Britney, and they received enough negative feedback about it that they’ve actually apologized, via Twitter. This is surprising. Here’s what they wrote:

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.

That was a decent way to handle it. They stayed detached and upbeat, but acknowledged they made a mistake. As for the interview itself, it wasn’t super interesting, but Britney did give some nice quotes. She said her fiance, Jason Trawick, is cool with her sitting around in her sweats when she’s not working. We’ve seen her casual looks when she does go outside, it’s got to be similar when she’s at home. She also said she loves makeup and that she hate socks. Remember when she went around wearing the same boots for a whole season?

On the perks of being a mega-star and the woes of having zits: “I get, like, these giant boxes of lip gloss and nail polish, and it’s like candy.” Not that she actually wears all of it. “I really just wear mascara all the time. And powder, because I have zits.”

On what set fiancé Jason Trawick, apart from her other boyfriends (and two husbands): “He was sweet.” For example: “He says he doesn’t mind that I sit around in sweats all the time.”

On how her two sons react to her being, well, Britney Spears: “They’re in the middle right now of trying to figure it out. They try to figure out where I go when I go to film X Factor. They’re like, ‘Mommy’s going off to be a superhero.’ and then I get back, and they just see me as Mommy. And then when I’m back working on the show, they say, ‘Oh, Mommy’s a superhero again!’”

On how she occupies her time when she’s not being ‘Britney the Icon’: “I work out. I swim. I play with the kids, I cook and I garden. We play Connect Four. We play Candy Land. Last night we read The Night Pirates.”

On dealing with her haters: “It’s just something that you get used to in this business.”

On the number of shoes in her closet: With a terrified look, the mag reports, Spears says, “I don’t know. A lot.” When pressed, she stammers, “I don’t know, 50.” She quickly responds, “Is that not enough?” (Our answer: No, Brit-Brit, you can never have enough shoes!)

On her current fashion obsession: “Big, stupid earrings, like with loops and feathers.”

On the item you won’t catch her wearing: “I never wear socks. I hate socks.”

On her fashion icons: She calls Jennifer Lopez, “A classic beauty,” and of Sarah Jessica Parker, she says, “Her looks are really bright and funky and young.”

Britney came across as kind of goofy and trying to be nice here, which is not the same impression I get from her on X-Factor. I haven’t been keeping up with it, but she seems a little ruthless on that show and very blunt. She seems to be holding her own for now, although we’ve heard rumors that she’s had trouble, especially in the beginning, and that producers are considering putting in a longer than usual time delay in case she has any problems during the live episodes. That could just be hype for the show, though.

As for the photo shoot, this is ridiculous. Apart from the bad photoshop job and the wig slipping down on her head, she’s wearing some very girlish clothing and posing like a kid. It’s bad all around.

    How the eff did she get to ATL and get Kim Z’s wig? And WHAT on earth will Kim say (shriek) when she finds out it is gone? Will she sic Troy on Britney? Did the Cheetolings sneak in disguised as wig tenders? How did this happen?

  3. lower-case deb says:

    wow. it’s less like the real britney and more like the junior and probation design team having an internal “Who Can Draw the Best Celebrity Likeness in Photoshop From Scratch” awards, and the ones you see here are the winners of the Britney Spears Round.

    Lucky… nobody got sacked.

    This looks sooooo cheap!

  5. Susan says:

    I really wish they’d stop pushing the Britney of the early 2000′s on us. Why not let her actually, you know, be an adult? Whoever styles this woman treats her like a mannequin at a Forever 21 store. Just stahp already!

    • Amory says:

      Because she really isn’t much of an adult?

      Still, I agree that her stylists should move her toward a more sophisticated style. My guess is that, given how she dresses when not at an event, she prefers the younger look and doesn’t realize that it no longer becomes her.

  6. Skipper says:

    Does she really think 50 pairs of shoes is a lot? That made me sad.

  7. Angel L says:

    She looks like Cher dressed like Connie Britton for Halloween. Tragic.

  8. emmie_a says:

    I honestly wouldn’t have noticed the hair if it wasn’t pointed out — too many celebrities wear hair pieces/wigs/extensions/weaves as their everyday hair that it’s hard to tell what is/isn’t real

  9. Dhavy says:

    Made her look like Faith Hill

    This is so bad

  10. Kimlee says:

    One of the worst photoshops ever. I don’t get why she dosen’t demand to be seen as a adult in these photoshots, she ether posted like a teen or dressed like one.

  11. Amory says:

    Isn’t this the same magazine that did a ridiculous photo-shop on Jessica Simpson??

  12. Jenna says:

    She looks SO uncomfortable and awkward; not to mention that fake smile of hers. That covers looks like she might burs into tears. Yikes.

  13. LeManda says:

    Why would they choose that pose for the cover? How bad are the other shots? At a photo session don’t they take a million shots?

    I feel like America’s Next top model has taught me that any photo where you look like an arm is cut off will get you sent home. Yet here is BRITNEY with one arm on a cover! Wow.

  14. Eleonor says:

    Someone should got fired for this mess!

  15. Mari says:

    Umm, did they let the interns run this shoot?

  16. d says:

    Britney’s always been heavily photoshopped on mags and her styling has been out of date for YEARS. I agree, WHY don’t they style her as a woman? This girlish look is so ridiculous now and I am feeling second hand embarrassment for her. Seriously, does no one have any brains in the Britney organization or are they all trashy? Is it that hard to figure out the proper style for her and to do proper make up? There’s no one there that can help her out? It’s just so bizarre.

  17. Me says:

    This is so bad. She always looks so uncomfortable in photos lately. Bad wig, bad styling. Britney may not like socks, but she sure loves short sleeved turtlenecks. They should have put her in jean shorts and a short sleeved turtleneck, and then she would have been in her comfort zone.

  18. Catherine says:

    Good thing she is photoshopped on that magazine because she looks haggard and aged in real life. It’s sad how life has taken a toll, right on her face.

  19. molly says:

    Fire this photochopper now. Look at that hair! But I think her face looks softer and nicer than usual.haha

  20. ZenB!tch says:

    Nevermind the wig, the FACE! She looks like a drag queen doing Faith Hill.

  21. Genevieve says:

    I just asked my girlfriend sitting next to me who this looked like (2nd pic) & she said…”Emily Maynard” then, “Jessica Simpson”, before finally, “Britney Spears”

    p.s. never a fan of hers, but I think she’s been thru a lot & is still going thru stuff & I think she’s remained pretty darn nice, sweet & innocent. (Granted I don’t watch that crappy Xfactor show)

  22. lasagna jones says:

    maybe they did the wig-falling-off look to try and counter britney’s fivehead. but the wig looks worse!! she just needs some bangs… think she’s one of the few ppl who can pull em off and actually looks better with bangs.
