Pop star Britney Spears is unhappy with the photos of her the paparazzi have been publishing and have accused them of editing the pics to make her look fat.

"Hello, and please don't judge me, I look haggard right now," Spears said via Instagram Live. "But my question to all of you is, a lot of fans in our world today, they always are subject to really criticize people and say that the pictures and videos that they're posting are either not on time or they're fake."

"But no one ever really asks, 'Are the paparazzi pictures fake, and do the paparazzi people do stuff to the pictures and is the news really real?'" she continued. "It's a conspiracy theory that I'm actually interested in. Yesterday I went swimming. I look like I'm 40 pounds bigger [in the pics] than I am today. This is how I am right now and I'm skinny as a needle. You tell me, what is real?"
