You know what bugs me? When a famous person says they have not had plastic surgery when they clearly have. There are some who will admit to it, some who have "no comment", and others who flat out say the "never" have.
Now, I understand that it's nobody's business. I hate invasive questions too. How old are you? Are you going to have a baby? How much did that cost? Have you had plastic surgery? Are all in the taboo category.
But being in the public eye is a little different, even when you didn't set out to be a role model, there is a level of responsibility that comes along with the territory.
Especially when it comes to this subject. Body image. So many women struggle with their body image. Most of us. I have, and I hate when it's happened and wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. I would never want to pass it on to a child or a younger relative or friend.
This is why it pisses me off when someone DENIES plastic surgery. Yes, it's rude to be asked that question. So either tell the person asking it to fuck off, it's none of their business, or be proud we live in a day and age you were able to fix something you didn't like, and recommend your surgeon!
Kim K and Megan Fox are two who always say they have NOT done anything. Ladies, COME ON! Look at the pictures above. Sorry, but you don't morph like that as you age. You do not magically lose your lines, get a smaller nose, a lifted brow or fuller lips. That is the work of a (really great) surgeon. I hate that these ladies lie and that young girls will believe them. I think it's irresponsible to let young girls believe that that is a natural progression. I hate that they're saying you just wake up like this one day?! Please. We all wish, but please.
I am all for plastic surgery. Ain't no shame in a nip tuck. Who cares what someone wants to do to themselves? Who cares what someone finds attractive, or wants to look like? It's their body, it's their money, we have a means to do it. So do it. But don't be a dumbass about it.
Be honest so the younger generation has a better understanding. Some will make the decision to remain natural some will know that a little help is out there and can prepare and plan for it. Either way is okay. Just be honest, or plead the fifth. No lies, please.
