Photos of Mariah Carey have been leaked featuring the singer before Photoshop or retouching.
Jezebel reportedly obtained unretouched photos of the songstress from a shoot she did for the summer issue of Wonderland magazine with famed photographer Terry Richardson.
The photos show Carey being shot alone, with Richardson and with her children in sexy black attire. According to Jezebel, the changes to the photos included enlarging Carey’s breasts, bronzing her skin tone and pulling in her waist.
In one photo where Carey poses in a long black dress with a large slit holding a glass of champagne, Jezebel shows that her leg has been thinned out and her stretch marks removed, her jawline thinned, volume added to her hair, and the creases in her chin and under her arm removed.
Jezebel partly blames Richardson’s notorious point-and-shoot-built-in-flash style for necessitating the modifications. According to The Mirror, fans took to Twitter to express their displeasure with the Photoshop job with one user saying, “those Mariah Carey photos by Terry Richardson are very dodgy.”
Carey was recently involved in another photo fiasco, although this one was a bit more self-inflicted. Mimi reportedly attempted to pass off a photo from 1997 as a current picture of herself. The photo, part of a collage of pictures featuring her twins, was actually first featured on an Oprah interview in 1997, according to E! Online.
