Teen magazine Lucky interviewed the pop star for its latest issue and while the questions and answers themselves were fairly unoffensive the accompanying photo shoot led to an Internet rage.
Not only did the photos appear to be heavily photo shopped, the singer’s hairline was suspiciously low - meaning she was almost certainly wearing a wig.
Her face appeared altered also and her teeth unnaturally white. Lucky do not actually admit that she is wearing a wig, but took to Twitter to apologise to their readers for the cover shot.
“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,” the Daily Mail quoted them as tweeting.
In the interview the singer opened up about her family and about who her style icons are. She said that her two sons, Preston, seven, and Jayden James, six, think that she is a ‘superhero’ when they see her on television judging the hit reality show.
“The boys try to figure out where I go when I go film ‘X Factor’. They’re like, ‘Mommy’s going off to be a superhero, ’” the 30-year-old singer told the magazine.
She also revealed that she finds Jennifer Lopez and Sarah Jessica Parker beautiful. “JLo is a classic beauty and I like SJP because her looks are really bright and funky and young,” Britney added.
