Britney Spears' Controversial Cover and Selena Gomez Gets Sexy in December Mags

At a mere 31-years-old Britney Spears' career has risen, fallen, and skyrocketed again. As a world renowned pop star and mother of two, she is on top of the world in more ways than one. But in usual Britney fashion her December Lucky magazine cover has been stirring up a bit of controversy. Fans took to Twitter complaining that the X-Factor judge looks heavily photoshopped and is sporting a bad wig. Regarding the wig, we must agree- it's much more hair than we're used to seeing on Britney and that hairline is near her eyebrows! Now as for the alleged photoshop, uh… what's new? Celebrities are airbrushed in nearly every printed ad and magazine spread and though it's misleading and unrealistic, it certainly isn't a new practice. Since the backlash Lucky tweeted an ambiguous message to fans, steering clear of whether or not the images were in fact edited (duh) stating, "Thank you all for sharing your thoughts on our cover! As always, we will share with our team and we're sorry to have let some of you down."
In a similar way, as a product of childhood Disney stardom, Selena Gomez has literally grown up right before our eyes. Now 20 years-old, the youngest-ever UNICEF ambassador, and girlfriend to the most famous heartthrob in the world, it's fair to say that she has bypassed the teeny bopper stage, onto a blossoming career. In the old-Hollywood style December Glamour magazine spread, Selena seems hell bent on proving that point, wearing a bold red lip and oozing sexy confidence. The days of Wizards of Waverly Place are over! Though gorgeous, with that young, round face we think the "I'm a grown up" stance may be a tougher sell than expected.
