What the hell did TV Guide do...


...to Lionel Richie's face or head on the cover of the current (March 5-18, 2018) issue?

My wife, who knows about such things, wonders is he's suffering from Acromegaly.

(Contemporaries of mine may recall Rondo Hatton, a screen actor with a limited film career during the '30s and '40s.)

Compare the images below, Richie on TV Guide now, and Richie just three years ago at age 65.

I wish only well for the celebrated musician, but I think TV Guide's got some explaining to do!

n further examination, I have to say I don't see other clinical manifestations of acromegaly.

Well, you would know that more than I. It's still weird-lookinng, though!

You know what? He looks more like maybe plastic surgery, maybe a spray tan, and Adobe Photoshop diagnosis to me. I see no evidence of acromegaly, sorry.

But why would any Art Director do something like that?
