Anyone who has seen Madonna perform knows that she is something of a superhuman: that stamina, that strength, those abs. Yet, the Material Girl still can’t catch a break when it comes to Photoshopping rumors and body-shaming whenever she stars in a fashion campaign or editorial. Case in point: After Madge’s super fierce ads for Versace hit earlier this month, Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera asked designer Donatella Versace if the images had been retouched — actually the reporter asked if they had been retouched “a lot.”
Donatella shut the reporter down, saying Madonna’s body was all real. “She did not have her abdomen or arms retouched,” said Versace. Furthermore, “She didn’t want any retouching — she didn’t want to look like a 30-year-old.”
