Axl Rose wants Google to remove unflattering pics of him. I say “keep them up!”

Axl Rose, lead singer of Guns N Roses wants Google’s help in burying unflattering pictures of him.

At one point in his career, Axl Rose was puffier than he’d like to be, and internet trolls did what internet trolls do. They grabbed hold of an unflattering set of pictures and made a Fat Axl meme out of them.

 

I get it, Axl was humiliated and upset. And he wants those photos out of the world for good. (It bears noting, that this is probably not going to happen).

Here’s what I say, Axl, leave them out there. The majority of us make what I call “ugly in between faces.” We are not always attractive. In fact, I would argue that I’m certain most celebrities make those ugly in between faces, too, but they curate the photos we see of them so meticulously that we never see the celebrity looking like a normal person, and then we fool ourselves into thinking that celebrities aren’t normal people.

Let it all hang out, Axl. Be proud of who you are and who you were at all points of your career. Be happy for where you were, and where you’ve gotten.

Remember when Beyonce threw a fit about the photographs that were released of her after Superbowl 2013 making ugly in between faces?

I LOVED those. Because the fact that Beyonce also makes ugly in between faces made me feel less self conscious about my own ugly in between faces.

Axl, it’s all good. Do you. And don’t worry. Internet trolls are going to troll, and the rest of us are over here high living you for being human!
