Celebs often want their perceived flaws and imperfections digitally removed so images are edited to "perfection" before being released, sparking discussions about the link between body image issues and the media.
Some celebs have taken photoshopping way too far, going out of their way to present an altered version of themselves to the public at all times, but what if the digital retouching were to go the other way? What would it look like to add to their body mass rather than sculpt and take away?
Digital artist David Lopera's controversial image manipulations reveal what famous femmes such as Kim Kardashian and Mila Kunis would look like if they were heavier, and it all began with his Katy Perry image going viral:
'I love Katy Perry but she would look much more sexy with a few extra pounds,' says Mr Lopera.
'So for my own pleasure, I manipulated her first album cover to make her look a bit chubby.
'I uploaded it online and soon, men were messaging me with requests to Photoshop other stars to look flabby.'
David’s controversial images will certainly provoke discussion about body image issues, but at the core of it all David is creating these images for clients who fantasize about seeing "their celebrity crushes look a bit fatter."
Does David's motivation for creating these images cheapen the "big is beautiful" message or reinforce it?
