[lastfm]Crystal Bowersox[/lastfm], the “Idol” runner-up recently tweeted this photo of herself….. Showing her cosmetically corrected, blindingly whitened grin, with the message, “What’s NOT missing in this picture?????? Yeah. That’s right” (referring to her former gummy gap). The smiley snapshot was a bit of a surprise, since although Crystal’s imperfect chompers were often the target of nasty blogosphere criticism and debate during her “Idol” run, she always seemed impervious to such shallow slams, even ignoring one shamelessly opportunistic celebrity dentist’s press release-dispensed offer to fix her teeth free of charge.
The downside to celebrity is such constant scrutiny…..over everything from teeth to weight. Would YOU really want to be the target af all that EVERY DAY?
