Many claim that the widely contested cover doesn't feature the pop star, but rather a heavily Photoshopped version of her that looks a little too much like Heidi Klum.
So while the public ponders that, designers from all over decided to hop on over to the virtual design studio DesignCrowd and work a little Photoshop magic of their own.
The results? Hilarious, and a clever commentary on the media's obsession with extreme airbrushing. How far, exactly, is too far?
Well, designers figured the Photoshop job pulled by Women's Health rendered Spears so unrecognizable it could very well have been one of these stars on the cover.
And judging by how uncannily some of these faces fit, they just might be on to something.
"Aw, hell no... nobody Photoshops Queen Bae but Queen Bae!"
This isn't Dame Judi Dench's body. It's her 007 secret agent stunt body stand-in.
If this were really Jolie, she'd have a few more tattoos. Unless! Unless Jolie had laser tattoo removal and the magazine simply Photoshopped Spears' face onto the cover. Wait... what? Now we're starting to think in conspiracy theories.
Either Spears is long overdue a lip wax, or Justin Bieber stepped in to fill out the pop star's peach bikini. People have been known to do stranger things after big breakups.
Well, we know this can't be true. Miss Piggy has far too much self-confidence to let anyone get away with an unwieldy Photoshop hack job on her likeness.
Being the POTUS does come with some awfully nice perks, like, for example, a really stellar gym membership and personal chef. How else would Obama get abs like that?
A Britney Spears/Miley Cyrus morph? Now that is someone we'd pay good money to see in concert.
If Hillary Clinton has a bit of a deer in the headlights look, it's only because her midriff hasn't been seen since circa 1989. Baby steps, Hil... baby steps.
This has clearly been tampered with. Someone Photoshopped clothes onto Kim Kardashian.
All of those middle school "I'm going to pump you up" PE videos hosted by Arnold Schwarzenegger really paid off for the ex-Governator. If we'd known they would have given us abs like this, we'd have actually done them instead of hiding under the bleachers for idle gossip with the besties.
It's magical how Spears' skin tone blends so seamlessly with Rihanna's — and essentially everyone's under the sun. It's like the Sisterhood of the Traveling Skin.
While this may not be Nicolas Cage in real life, he should hit Spears up for some hair tips. Her flowy locks are a vast improvement over what he's usually got going on up top.
Can we get Princess Fiona on the cover of Women's Health for real? That would be fantastic. Favorite cover, hands down.
We just don't know how North Korea's Kim Jong-un had the time to pose for this Women's Health cover, what with the all-consuming tasks of infringing on American's creative rights and making terrorist threats against movie theaters weighing down his schedule.

Welp, you knew someone was going to go and do it. And no, this isn't the Britney Spears cover that ran — this is actually, in fact, Heidi Klum.
