Taylor Swift's Covergirl Ad Gets Banned!

No, her music isn't banned because of her racy and provocative lyrics, I mean have you heard "Love Story," that sh-t is racy! Taylor Swift's Covergirl ads were banned for being photo-shopped. Not that Taylor Swift even needs to be photo-shopped, but you can't advertise that Covergirl mascara makes your lashes longer and then photoshop in longer lashes. It's kind of anti-the point of buying mascara. 

The National Advertising Division has banned the ad for a NatureLuxe Mousse Mascara because Swift's "lashes were enhanced in post production" according to the fine print at the bottom of the ad. 

I don't know what the problem is...I'm looking at the ad and thinking to myself that's just what Taylor Swift's face looks like. Doesn't the NAD know that Swifts eyelashes are ALWAYS that luscious. I mean, I once took a photo of Taylor Swift's eyes to the MAC counter and was like, "Make it like that!"

According to the NAD director Andrea Levine, "You can't use a photograph to demonstrate how a cosmetic will look after it is applied to a woman's face and then - in the fine print - have a disclosure that says, 'Okay, not really."

Love that the National Advertising Division uses phrases like "Okay, not really." 

Usually organizations like the Advertising Standards Authority crack down on images and ads that are too racy, like the Dakota Fanning Marc Jacobs ads that were seen to sexualize a child. Now they are banning people for being too pretty and too fake. How about they crack down on any Kardashian endorsed products for being too over-exposed?
