In what may be one of the most hypocritical public reactions ever, Britney Spears is being criticized for using body makeup to create fake abs. According to a Dec. 31 report on Huffington Post, the pop star's performances at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas last weekend prompted the latest fan reaction.
Spears had done extensive physical training preparing for the grueling dance numbers featured in the performances; this was the debut of her new residency in Las Vegas. Photos from the event showed what appeared to be makeup, shading the lines to create a defined six-pack.
Regardless of what you think about Britney Spears, her over-the-top costumes and performances, this whole thing seems ridiculous in a celebrity culture where almost everything is plastic. Stage makeup has been used as long as there were stages! The lights wash out everything, and it is perfectly acceptable to define a performer’s face with shadows and highlights. Why then would a few streaks of makeup on a toned, fit body create such a stir?
