Jamie Lee Curtis stepped up to applaud Karol G for calling out her ‘GQ Mexico’ magazine cover for being photoshopped.
“Today my GQ magazine cover was made public, a cover with an image that does not represent me,” Karol G posted on Instagram with the cover image shown next to a selfie. “My face doesn’t look like that, my body doesn’t look like that and I feel very happy and comfortable with how I look naturally. I understand the repercussions this can have, but beyond feeling it’s disrespectful to me, it’s disrespectful to women who wake up looking to feel comfortable with themselves despite society’s stereotypes.”
Curtis then shared the magazine cover and Karol G’s comments on the post, to her own account. “I’m so happy that @karolg is bringing awareness to an issue I have been concerned about for a long time,” Curtis noted. “We are human beings. We are not AI and this genocide against what is naturally beautiful is alarming and needs to be talked about.”
Curtis also mentioned that previously she has been vocal about the issue along with the likes of Justine Bateman and Andie MacDowell. She also mentioned that she’s “very encouraged that a younger person is joining the chorus of disapproval. The cosmeceutical industrial complex wants you to look in the mirror and hate yourself and then buy their bulls—.”
Karol G’s album ‘Mañana Será Bonito’ debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. It was the first time she made it to No. 1 on the chart, and it also simultaneously marked the first time that an all-Spanish-language album by a woman was atop the list.
