Britney Spears has called out paparazzi for supposedly photoshopping her photos to make her look heavier.
The pop star took to her Instagram stories to address the “conspiracy theory” after questionable photos of boyfriend Sam Asghari and herself at a beach in Miami made its way on the internet.
Spears made sure to put on the same bikini that she had worn when the paparazzi shots were taken to prove that she looked slimmer than what was portrayed in the photos. She also told fans that she appeared “haggard” in those images due to her smudged eyeshadow after jet-skiing.
She further claimed that she was really “skinny as a needle,” but looked “40 pounds bigger” when captured swimming the day before.
“You tell me, what is real?” she asked.
When photo agency MEGA heard about the accusations, it denied ever editing her body to look bigger.
A spokesperson for the company said that it was “ludicrous” for Spears to claim that the images were “altered in any way.” Additionally, the photographer had taken “thousands of photos of her over the weekend,” so she was welcome to look at the “original files” if she wanted to.
Now, Spears’ “skinny as a needle” line has become a meme on social media. A Twitter user even asked if Spears looked as skinny as Game of Thrones’ ‘Arya Stark’s’ sword, which bore the nickname ‘Needle’. Check out more hilarious responses below.
