Just in case you haven’t seen, the internetosphere erupted in both praise and criticism when two magazines, Mega Magazine and Preview Magazine, came out with their January 2012 issues. The outcry was about the supposed, and seemingly highly photoshopped and/or surgically enhanced models on the covers: Jinkee Pacquiao and Charice Pempengco. (Or maybe the outcry was just because Twitter was failwhailing… either way, there was an outcry!)
In case you haven’t seen the Jinkee and Charice magazine covers, here it is – http://www.vincegolangco.com/celebrities/jinkee-pacquiao-vs-charice-pempengco-photoshop-wars-of-mega-magazine-and-preview-magazine/
It does not stop there! Apparently, Charice and the Pacquiao women are on a plastic surgery and photoshop rampage!
Check out these before and after photos of the now newly surgically enhanced Charice!
I’m no celebrity-recognizing-face-matching expert, but I’m pretty sure that’s her! I mean look at them! They’re both Asian! Tsk tsk tsk. Talk about getting Louder!
I’d have to say, the letters up are a big improvement though….
Anyway, there’s also that other outcry about the Mega Magazine cover of Jinkee where people are claiming that she looks completely fabricate, from her neck to her eyes, to her boobs, something was doctored, either with a sharp knife or with a lasso tool. Here’s the rumored and controversial Jinkee Pacquiao magazine cover you’ve heard so much about:
I’m no expert, but I do think it was photoshopped a bit.
Oh and this next one stirred some controversy too.
Of course, many claim that both the Charice and this Jinkee cover is only photoshopped minimally, with some hardcore fans even claiming that no editing was involved at all!
And just when I thought things couldn’t get any worse, I then see this magazine cover of the other female Pacquiao celebrity! None other than Aling Dionisia with her own FHM cover!
Again, I’m no expert, but I think this one is photoshopped a bit…
Oh photoshop, where will you take us next?
FYI, just in case it wasn’t obvious, this is a satirical piece meant to poke fun at the situation. Not to be taken seriously. In case you’re also wondering, that girl that kinda looks like Charice is Tila Tequila.
