Kelly Clarkson looks terrific on the cover of SELF magazine thanks to photoshop. And SELF doesn’t mind admitting its trick. “Yes, of course we do post-production corrections on our images,” SELF editor in chief Lucy Danziger told Entertainment Tonight. “Kelly Clarkson exudes confidence, and is a great role model for women of all sizes and stages of their life. . . We love this cover.”

Clarkson weighs in on her body:

“My happy weight changes. Sometimes I eat more; sometimes I play more. I’ll be different sizes all the time. When people talk about my weight, I’m like, ‘You seem to have a problem with it; I don’t. I’m fine!’ I’ve never felt uncomfortable on the red carpet or anything.”
