The singer’s latest cover shoot has received a lot of criticism.

Mariah Carey is no stranger to the limelight and in the last few years, has gladly stepped back onto centre stage.

However, the singer’s latest efforts have caused a bit of debate online.

Gracing the cover of Paper magazine, Mariah shared pictures from the upcoming issue on Instagram, saying:

“Out now! Pick up your copy today to find out about all the festivity that happens in Vegas, but doesn’t stay in Vegas.”

The picture was quickly picked apart by followers to accused the singer of having the pictures Photoshopped.

“This is obvious Photoshopping. Totally takes away from her rather than adds to who she is,” one follower commented.

“You are not skinny. Accept it and love yourself the way you are,” wrote another.

And while the comments may have been just opinion, another commenter suggested they had proof the pictures had been edited.

“This saddens me because I saw the original and I think you look AMAZING without the glass of photoshop.

“Embrace your body, Ma. We all already do.”

The singer has been called out about Photoshopping her images before, with many of her social media posts inundated with accusatory comments.

However, I’m not going to lie and say I’ve never done a bit of retouching before posting a selfie to Instagram.
