Britney has allowed two un-airbrushed photos from last year's Candies photoshoot by Mark Liddell to sit alongside the digitally-altered ones, so "people can see the difference," according to the Daily Mail.

Britney reportedly made the the extraordinary move "in order to highlight the pressure exerted on women to look perfect."
