A message from Luke Burbank to Kate Upton: I've got your backon July 16, 2012 @ 11:40 am (Updated: 3:12 pm - 7/16/12 )
Kate Upton recently did a risque spread for GQ - but that hasn't stopped the pro-ana blogs from calling her "fat." (GQ magazine image)
Pro-skinny (or pro-anorexia websites) have been railing on about how SI Swimsuit cover girl and all- around hottie Kate Upton is too fat. But 97.3 KIRO FM Ross & Burbank host Luke Burbank wants her to know that it's alright.
"Whatever you're doing - keep doing it," Luke said in an open message to Upton. "It's working. If, just in case these pro-skinny websites are getting her down, I just want her to know that I have her back."
Luke described Upton as "buxom" but definitely smaller than the average woman. Compared to other models she's bigger, but not by much.
After facing criticism from pro-ana blogs, Upton said she's not going to starve herself to be a size zero.
It's one of many controversies surrounding models, print photos, and the overuse of Photoshop that's become a common conversation on the Internet.
Following Seventeen's announcement that they would stop Photoshopping the women and girls in their magazine, another non-Photoshopped spread is making headlines.
ESPN Magazine's annual "Body Issue" features the finest in bare bodies of sports. Host Dave Ross said his daughter was fascinated by the issue, because these athletes look the way Photoshopped folks appear naturally.
Of course, for athletes who work out 8 hours a day, often 7 days a week - it's their job to be that in-shape.
According to Luke, we haven't lost retouching altogether. Photoshop will still likely come in to play when Britney Spears is on the cover.
