Upon further scrutiny (read: further stalking on Getty Images Editorial Photos), I discovered that that glorious and inspiring Facebook photo (which has since suspiciously changed) was nothing more than a SHAM, people! In fact the closer I looked at the two pictures—the perfect Facebook photo and the real-deal Getty Images pic—the more I could pickup the individual Photoshop improvements... increased arch and filled in eyebrows, skinnier arms, bustier bust, less wrinkle-y elbow, etc.
Britney, You've had a few tough years that no doubt aged you more than your average 30 year old. But if you want to appear skinnier you should just hop on the J. Hud wagon and sign up for Weight Watchers. You're trusted graphic designer/photoshop pro can't help you on your upcoming X Factor appearances.
