But what about those celebrities? They need all the help they can get right? The term the beautiful people was meant to be ironic right? People like Katy Perry need all the help she can get right? After all, she's as as ugly as dirt right?
Well apparently Rolling Stone Magazine thought so for their cover shoot of Katy. Here's an airbrushed image of Katy Perry that's doing the rounds on twitter which shows a before the airbrushing and afterwards.
The differences between ugly Katy and pretty Perry are amusing...
Before and After: The Air Brushing of Katy Pretty
It's amusing to see how Rolling Stone made Katy's boobs bigger, totally rearranged her fingers, removed that mole thingy on her chest and made her other wise sexy tummy even trimmer.
She's a dish!
No wonder Russell Brand snapped her up!
In fact rumour has it, he only proposed to Katy after this copy of Rolling Stone turned up in his mailbox.
Truth is, sex sells and Rolling Stone knows it.
Even the makers of Halo know it. I'm sure Katy knows it herself.
It's no biggy, the question is really, does Katy need airbrushing?
There are some things you can't photoshop or air brush out however. Live action shots!
Here's Katy getting slimed! Either that or she just had sex with Shrek.
