Selena Gomez may not post on Instagram often, but when she does, her fans take notice. Take, for instance, a selfie the singer shared on Tuesday that shows her completely makeup free. In the picture, Gomez stares bleary-eyed into the camera, wrapped in a blanket. The photo, which seems to be filtered via the Huji app to give it a vintage film vibe — shows the singer with blemishes, under-eye bags, and messy hair. "Me, all the time," she captioned the picture.
The photo has garnered more than 8 million likes (and counting) with many fans praising her beauty and even more commending her for being so real and honest on social media. And while many fans are speculating if this was Gomez's way of hinting that she was upset over her ex Justin Bieber's recent wedding (highly doubtful), many others wondered if she is simply sharing her love of napping/blankets/being makeup-free (relatable).
Others still speculated that the "Back to You" singer's selfie was a way for her to post about her depression or hint that she wasn't feeling well due to her lupus. Back in 2015, she revealed her diagnosis and subsequently received a kidney transplant in 2017 to treat the autoimmune disease.
Earlier this summer, it was reported that she had filed a trademark for products including skin care and cosmetics, so there's also a chance Gomez's selfie is a way to promote this rumored beauty line. But considering the 24-year-old typically uses her social media presence to highlight mental health, it's more likely the photo was either a subtle nod to her ongoing health struggles or simply an "I'm sleepy and want to take a picture" moment.
Regardless of why she posted it, you can't deny that it's major inspo to embrace your skin, au naturel.
