Steady yourselves, please.  Sit down.  Maybe get a glass of water.  A valium if you have one handy. 

Katy Perry, has had her breasts reduced – albeit digitally – but reduced nonetheless for a recent photo to promote the upcoming VH1 Divas Salute the Troops on December 5th, says Us Magazine

I know.  My reaction exactly. 

Perry will be performing on the special with fellow divas Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland, Hayley Williams of Paramore, Grace Potter
of Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Nicki Minaj,
and Keri Hilson.  And they all posed for ’40s pin-up girl-style promo pics below (click to enlarge):

Now, as this not-that-safe-for-work link will clearly show, there has been some digital quackery afoot.  The site quoted a source who stated that “her team thinks her boobs look too big.”  Another source confirms: “It’s true. The ads are being redone!”  This comes on the heels of the recent controversy where Perry had a duet with Elmo on Sesame Street yanked due to a low-cut top showing her rather magnificent cleavage.  Now some might say that the change is not as egregious as it could be.  But I say simply, is nothing sacred anymore? 

CHUD appeals for calmness in this difficult time.
