Kendrick Lamar in his 2017 song requests: "I'm so fuckin' sick and tired of the Photoshop ... show me somethin' natural ... like afro on Richard Pryor ... like ass with some stretchmarks." One person who really would would not want to comply with Lamar's request is forty-four-year-old fashion model Kate Moss, who may well be the most Photoshopped human. We all age, it is a natural process. Many believe in embracing the aging process, while others prefer to do what they can to disguise and mitigate it. Kate Moss, for many years was widely regarded as one-of-the-most-beautiful-women-in-the-world (they said she was a style icon), and she gained many commercial contracts to advertise fashion and beauty products. At some point Kate decided to just keep on going with the contracts, with written and/or unspoken agreements to extensively Photoshop the photos used. It is not actually illegal to do that--so if everyone is fine with it, then why not?
