It’s honesty week at Gawker Media, and if there’s one thing we’ve learned here, it’s this: Never forget not to not NOT judge a book by its cover. Inspired by BuzzFeed, we’ve put together a list of the most wrong and cruel things people think based on our appearances.
Kesha is somewhere blue and beautiful celebrating her face and body with arty Instagram filters, which has naturally attracted people who like to make comments about celebrities’ faces and bodies.
On Monday, Meghan Trainor—who made her name with the song “All About That Bass,” which purports to celebrate a curvy form—released the music video for her latest single, “Me Too,” only to quickly remove it. The reason she gave? “They photoshopped the crap out of me,” she told her fans on Snapchat.

The three-time Sports Illustrated cover girl made it known that she thinks body…
