According to the ever-classy Daily Mail UK, there is now an App for your cell phone that shows you what you would look like with a boob job. Although it’s designed for women considering breast augmentation, it seems more likely that the average user is a teenage boy — or his mental equivalent.
Katy Perry’s boobs have won her legions of male fans and, some might say, helped bag a famous husband. But it would seem that there is one group of people who aren’t so keen on Katy’s much admired cleavage – her own team.
Katy’s representatives have reportedly asked for her 34D breasts to be photoshopped to look smaller in a new promotional poster for VH1, in which she poses as a vintage pin-up. Katy appears strapped into a parachute harness with her arms thrown back in the poster, for VH1 Divas ‘Salute the Troops,’ due to air on TV in the US on the 5th December.
Us Magazine, a celebrity gossip publication based in the US, claimed ‘a source’ told them that:

Women who clearly had “problem areas” on the backs of their thighs that were not going to be airbrushed away? The lunacy! — has taken a more mainstream step into today’s marketing, and Paula Abdul says it best: “one step forward/two steps back.”
Dove’s latest legacy with the Real Beauty campaign says it all. A new casting call wants women with “flawless skin” and “no scars.” Because clearly, slightly rippled (or even hugely dimpled) thighs and C-section scars peeking out from beneath two-piece bathing suits turn the public off to Dove, and all of its beauty products, too, so we can’t have that, right?
