Lucky Magazine is receiving a ton of criticism for their new December cover featuring Britney Spears. Sure, Britney looks great if you’re looking at the cover from far away, but as soon as you get up close it clearly looks like Britney is wearing a wig, and a bad one at that.

Many of Britney’s fans complained to Lucky on Twitter about the wig as well as their excessive use of retouching on the pop star. Here were some of the reactions:

“@LuckyMagazine That cover looks horrible. Did @britneyspears even show up for the photoshoot or did you just photoshop her face on a body?”

“@LuckyMagazine It’s just a big disgrace to a bloody LEGEND! Does she really look like that? No.”

“@LuckyMagazine Why on earth would you put that horrendous wig on@britneyspears? It’s lazy & unprofessional. Why not use her natural hair?”

All of the complaints led the magazine to publicly apologize to readers on Twitter! “Thank you all for sharing your thoughts on our cover! As always, we will share with our team and we’re sorry to have let some of you down,” they tweeted.

What do you think of the Lucky cover? It is as bad as Britney fans are making it out to be?
