Britney Spears is letting it all hang out. The singer, 28, has released unretouched photos from her 2009 Candie's photo shoot alongside the digitally-altered ones.
In the first photo, she stares seductively into the camera with her arms behind her head while wearing a pink, cut-out bathing suit. In the ad, her thighs and midsection are slimmer and blemishes have been removed from her calves.
In the second photo, shot from behind, Spears holds her arms above her head while looking over her shoulder. Compared to the original, a small patch of cellulite is removed, her booty appears smaller and a back tattoo is gone.
A source close to Spears tells the UK Daily Mirror that she allowed the photos to be released to highlight the enormous pressure women are under to look perfect in Hollywood.
"Britney is proud of her body - imperfections and all," says the source.
I applaud her for releasing the photos though she has NOTHING to be ashamed of! Even unretouched she looks fantastic!
