Britney Spears looks amazing on a new magazine cover — but many are wondering if her smokin’ bod is really just a Photoshop masterpiece.

Appearing on the cover of the new January/February 2015 issue of Women’s Health, the 33 year-old pop star shows off her toned abs while wearing a peach bikini underneath an open velvet blazer.

The mother of two looks impressively fit and slim, causing critics to accuse the magazine of significantly altering the image with Photoshop. It doesn’t look like Brit has ab muscles, just a completely flat (and perhaps blurry) tummy. It also helps that Brit is raising her arms above her head, some have pointed out. Her face, particularly her nose, also looks completely different. Check out the video to see what you think!

But a behind-the-scenes video released by the magazine shows that Britney is the real deal. You can even see the photos on a computer before they’ve been retouched at all.

Britney also says she’s been eating healthy and working out to maintain her lean frame.

“I like my workouts to be effective in a short amount of time,” she says. “I start with 20 minutes of intense cardio — usually running — move on to light free weights, body-weight exercises such as push-ups, squats and sit-ups, then finish it off with a stretch.”

She also says she’s into raw food and sushi, though she indulges in Nut Thins and “any kind of fruit.”
