Zendaya Calls Out a Magazine for Photoshopping Her, Inspires Us All

In a world where Photoshop seems to be the norm, it's always refreshing when someone says NO to it. One young star is proving stardom hasn't gotten to her head. Zendaya is only 19 years old, but she's already becoming an inspiring young woman who puts self-love before anything else. So when she spotted an image of her that had been Photoshopped, she wasn't passive, to say the least. Just this Tuesday, Zendaya posted a photo to Instagram that showed how a recent magazine shoot had heavily edited her appearance. To show just how significant the change was, she put the image next to one that wasn't retouched at all. Zendaya speaks up against Photoshopped image. Her caption says, "Had a new shoot come out today and was shocked when I found my 19 year old hips and torso quite manipulated. These are the things that make women self conscious, that create the unrealistic ideals of beauty that we have. Anyone who knows who I am knows I stand for honest and pure self love. So I took it upon myself to release the real pic (right side) and I love it. Thank you @modelistemagazine for pulling down the images and fixing this retouch issue." Zendaya proves to be an inspiration for anyone feeling like society is in charge of the expectations we are supposed to set for ourselves. You go girl!
