They Make This Shit Look Good

So, you may have heard that two crusty old musical veterans have new records coming out soon - one with her 6th studio album and the other with a long-awaited greatest hits compilation.

Since they're not spring chickens any more, their labels are hoping that by using a little bit of digital magic to give them fresh, youthful appearances, the records would appeal to a whole new generation of music lovers. I think the plan might actually work because, boy, my Photoshop skills are nothing compared to these works of art. They look great! Especially Christina there on the right. Man, it's a good thing I'm not illiterate or I'd have never guessed who that was.

I saw a commercial for Christina's new CD and was like: "who IS that?" the whole time until they said her name.

Talk of crusty old musical veterans with new albums, and no mention of Guns 'N Roses??? Bah, I say!

The guy to the top left is Sam Worthington .... My favourite actor! You will see alot more of him next year.

Darnit ... i was going for a hat trick of firecrotch runner up's ....

i go through life aiming to be mediocre, that way im hardly dissapointed ... well it works for Britney, Christina, emo bands & uni students ....

My eyes... they burn, they burn!

J. Hi said...

Yeah, Christina looks like some computer generated robo-girl.

I think I still see some Cheeto dust around Britney's mouth. :)

When I first read your headline I saw "they make shit look good" Same diff, I guess

Falwless said...

Holy crap, you're right. That looks nothing like Christina.

MelO said...

NOTHING like Christina... very weird.

But for the record, I think your photoshop skills are DAMN GOOD!

MelO said...

Ha ha... "Genie in a bottle" just started playing on my radio at work.

Yeah, we listen to awesome music.

Bubs said...

Yep, Christina looks like a computer generated character, and at first I mistook Britney for Jessica Simpson in that picture.

Red said...

Xtina's eyes are freaking me out!

The Vegetable Assassin said...

I don't get it. Airbrushing Christina makes her look worse! How is that possible? She looks like a painted dolly to begin with. Remember those "Genie in a Bottle" days when she only used one bottle of foundation a day? Before she turned into a cartoon skank. I mean she's sort of real life classier than Britney but honestly, you wouldn't want to touch her without a hazard suit, right?

I think britney is holding a bag of cheetos down below the frame. The cut it out of the final print.

Chancelucky said...

Weren't both Christina and Britney both Mouseketeers? Maybe it was in their contracts that they get digital makeovers after a certain age.

Crusty old music veterans? Shit, is Bono then a geriatric??

Fancy Schmancy said...

I couldn't give a crap what X-tina looks like. With pipes like that, she doesn't need to be pretty! The girl can sing. Poor Brit, on the other hand, needs all the help she can get.

Alice said...

i, uh, kind of like xtina's eye makeup there. i mean, not for ME per se, but i do.. um.. like it. THERE. I SAID IT.

Dale said...

At least they picked the right title for poor beleaguered Britney or Britley as I call her for unknown reasons.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I'm going there to get myself photoshopped asap.

GETkristiLOVE said...

I guess they each keep a photoshop expert on payroll now.

Kristi Mantoni said...

I don't know...you did pretty awesome with your new profile pic. You could give them a run for their money.

I don't think that's really Christina...Christina Barbie maybe.

mike said...

Stop hatin' on these two. I actually thought the same thing about Christina on that Target commercial for her CD, that she looks amazing (and touched up).

Jenny said...

Christina looks like Lady GaGa. Just saying.

EEEWWWWW!!!!!

 

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
