Why is this photo weird?

From an article today on the Sugababes' upcoming tour.

There's a thin white line that goes across their fringes and through their hair. It's like the faces have been Photoshopped in or something, but there is nothing around the rest of the faces to suggest this.

What's goig on?

If I had to guess I'd say it's related to this story:

https://www.digitalspy.com/showbiz/a864177/sugababes-mutya-keisha-siobhan-back-together/

which refers to a tweet from Keisha saying: "We WILL be snatching wigs when we are ready! We will explain the delay when it's time. Don't let perception fool ya. We're very much still a TING."

The original Getty version of the image

https://www.gettyimages.co.uk/detail/news-photo/keisha-buchanan-mutya-buena-and-siobhan-donaghy-of-the-news-photo/451091429

doesn't have the fringing, so I expect someone at Digital Spy was playing about with a visual joke about wig-snatching, then rendered the article image from the photoshopped one after accidentally moving the 'wig' layer slightly...

Starlit

OK.
What exactly is wig snatching?

jamiefairlie

Don't know but I assume it's very different to what I imagine Snatch Wigging to be.

I think it means 'doing something surprisingly wonderful'.

So they're actually all bald, and the hair has been badly photoshopped in?

We were at a party
Mutya's hair fell in the deep
Someone reached in and grabbed it
It was a wig snatcher

Wig snatcher!

It's a drag phrase, the third definition on that link is the origin of it. As with everything however THE STRAIGHTS have stolen it and repurposed it to suit their own narrative.

I am against wigs

But pro merkins

Where do I collect my fee? Over.

It is weird because Mutya isn't holding up a sign saying 5G caused covid?

Goldentony

yeah Mutya had probably the funniest/maddest Instagram during the whole lockdown. Think at one point early into the whole thing she was on the 'Tom Hanks Eats Kids' train. Isn't Keisha anti vax too? be some concerts these!

Oh man. This is hugely upsetting news.

Pah! They're not even the best Sugababes in the Sugababes.

As good as Overload was, the lineup with Heidi was the definitive Sugababes.

I mean
the first lineup with her.

Perhaps it would've smelled less if you'd sat down?
