The Grass is Always Greener...

Sometimes, I love seeing the "other" celeb photos. This one is from a blog where they LOL celebrities. But the thing that interests me is that we're seeing the downside of the "ideal" body issue. Madonna looks amazingly fit at her age, there's no denying it. But... is that how we want to look in reality? Without the flashy lights and makeup and photoshop? Is it worth the restriction of food and obsession with working out and blah, blah, blah? So, when I see something like this, I like to take a moment for it to sink in. I don't want to be unhappy in order to look a certain way. And the grass will always be greener... And I don't want to look like Iggy Pop, either.
