The cruelties of HDTV

There's an old cliche about high-definition television that the picture is so good that you can count the number of pores on the actors' noses. The downside is that that extra level of detail is going to prove cruel to some performers since you can actually see all the imperfections now.  Philip Swan watched Showtime's recent HDTV broadcast of a Britney Spears concert and reports that things aren't looking too pretty for her:

At the tender age of 22, Spears doesn't have to worry about crow's feet yet. However, during tonight's concert in Miami, she looked like she hadn't slept in days. Her face was bumpy and puffy, making her appear five to ten years older than her years. The pop princess, who reportedly has been partying hard at night spots across the globe, simply didn't look very healthy tonight under the naked lens of high-def. Her make-up artists apparently tried to conceal the imperfections with heavy rouge on her cheeks, but it just added to the overall mess.

Ouch!
