Karol G rips GQ for photoshopping her first magazine cover and says ‘my body doesn’t look like that’ in furious new post

In the message to GQ, Karol G explains to her fans that the photo on the magazine’s cover does not represent her.

To add insult to injury, the GQ cover was Karol G’s very first magazine cover.

The singer goes on to say that she’s more comfortable with her natural beauty than what was shown in the magazine.

The post was originally posted in Spanish, but it has been translated by Instagram.

She wrote: “I don’t know where to begin with this message… Today my cover with GQ was published with an image that does NOT represent me.

“My face doesn’t look like that, my body doesn’t look like that and I am very happy and comfortable with how I look naturally.”

Although she admits that she was grateful to be on the cover, she didn’t appreciate that GQ ignored her request to be unedited.

She said she was “very happy when it was confirmed, but despite being clear with my unconformity about the editing on the photo, nothing was done about it.”

After she saw the picture and shared her concerns, Karol G claims “nothing was done,” and she feels “disrespected.”

She understands that there might be “repercussions” for taking such a public stance against GQ, but she wanted to be real with her fans.

She wrote, “It’s disrespectful to me, it’s to the women that every day we wake up looking to feel comfortable with ourselves despite society’s stereotypes.”

With the caption, she posted a completely natural and unedited selfie along with the GQ cover where she looks completely different.


Karol G’s fans on Instagram completely supported her decision to rip the magazine for editing her natural beauty.

All of the comments were translated from Spanish.

One wrote, “We are with you beautiful. My Karol G you are beautiful naturally no one can dim your shine.”

Another commented, “They always try to dim you, but you shine. You are light. You are beautiful inside and out, an admirable woman.”

A third added, “It’s nice to read this from a landmark for so many girls who dream to be like picture 2. This is powerful. Telling them what to be accepted as they are, no surgeries, no filters, no retouching created to satisfy a completely broken society of self-love.”

Another fan wrote, “Thank you for speaking up and demonstrating that real women are more beautiful than what publishers want to paint with stereotypes of absurd beauty.

“A thousand applause for you my beautiful. Thank you for being that brave woman who encourages millions of women that natural is better.”


Karol G has cemented herself as a reggaeton icon since her debut album was released in 2017.

Her songs are known to have billions of views and streams on sites like YouTube and Spotify.

Born and raised in Medellín, Colombia, her full name is Carolina Giraldo Navarro.

She was born on February 14, 1991, and is currently 32 years old.

At the age of 14, Karol G competed on the Colombian version of The X Factor, a reality talent show.

Over the next few years, she studied music and released a few songs, performing with artists such as J Balvin.

She moved to New York in 2014, where she started taking music business administration classes and worked on perfecting her image.

She released collaborations with artists like Pop Smoke and Bad Bunny before releasing her debut album, Unstoppable.

Unstoppable premiered at number two on the Billboard Top Latin Albums chart.

Karol G is heavily inspired by Rihanna and the late Selena – she even has a tattoo of their faces next to her own on her forearm.
