Celebrity Spot-Lite: Oh, Kelly Osbourne

February 10, 2012

Oh, Kelly. Kelly Osbourne is another celebrity (think, KFed) who has made a name for herself by being related to famous people and also by gaining and then losing weight. And, apparently, her most recent “photoshoot” of her “new” fabulous bod is actually…from a year ago?

No Comment.

There is no denying that Kelly Osbourne looks fabulous showing off her trim bikini body on the cover of Australia’s OK Magazine this week.

However, it didn’t take eagle-eyed fans long to spot that the seemingly brand new photos was actually taken over a year ago, for the December issue of Shape magazine.

The decision to feature such old pictures is odd, considering the 27-year-old has managed to maintain the enviable figure she achieved as the result of her stint on Dancing With The Stars back when the pictures were taken.

This seems kind of strange. To be perfectly honest, I don’t care at all about Kelly Osbourne and neither should you, but I was slightly intrigued by the point of how much we believe in what we see. We are presented with a photo of Kelly looking “fab ab” in a magazine, we believe it is a photo of Kelly looking “fab ab” in real life. Or do we?
I’ve stopped paying attention to magazines. Between PhotoShop and just flat out lies/misconceptions, it’s just not worth it anymore. But there are plenty of interesting sites that are doing a super job of promoting health or showcasing celebrities in unique ways. One of them is DrGullo.com:
Dr. Stephen Gullo, a psychologist who for more than a decade was a professor at Columbia University Medical Center, is one of the most respected weight loss doctors in the world. He is the former chair of the National Obesity and Weight Control Education Program of the American Institute for Life-Threatening Illness. He regularly consults with A-list celebrities on their weight loss regimens.
Check out the site, it’s an interesting look at health, nutrition, and the celebrity world. And happy Friday…may your weekend be more AB FAB than Kelly’s fakery.

    That photo is so blatantly shopped I can’t believe they’d run it. As for photo trickery, I posted an awesome video on how they fake before & after pix for diet pills/supplements that you & your readers might find very interesting: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M957dACQyfU&feature=player_embedded

    I agree with your statement of not even caring/looking anymore since everything is photoshopped.
    I really dont even think most guys care that much about your cellulite, lumps, wrinkles, what have you. Magazines need to just shut up already.
