What’s the backlash over? Can’t you tell by looking at it? I can tell you this: Melissa McCarthy looks gorge on the cover of Elle. The big deal here is in the fat shaming category. People are pissed that a big girl, who is extremely fucking talented, is on the cover of a major fashion mag like Elle, and they bundle her ass up in a baggy coat, so as not to look as big in theory. Despite their denial, I totally believe that they covered her up to hide her, but she does look the hotness.
Nicki scrubbed it off instead of piling it on for the April issue of ELLE Magazine and I likes what I sees. When asked what Nicki thought of her makeunder she said, “When I saw myself with barely any makeup at, it was such a… like, I’m so, so attached to my pink lipstick, it’s hard. I feel that it’s become a part of me. To go in front of the camera, without pink lips or big ol’ crazy lashes— you know, nothing— I felt naked. It was scary! So this photo shoot was a real accomplishment in my eyes.” Girl, you still have hair, lashes and contacts, what more do you REALLY need?!
