Britney Spears is such an inspiration to millions -- through her music, through her breathtaking performances, and through the story of her life.
It's no wonder that her fans suggest replacing Confederate monuments with statues of her -- in New Orleans, anyway. And they really make some good points.
This time, Britney is making the world a better place by showing off her beautiful face -- without makeup!
We are so accustomed to seeing Britney perfectly made up, with her hair done and her face (and body) made up, whether she's taking photos with her boyfriend Sam Asghari or performing.
But, even though Britney can transform people's lives through music and her legendary performances, she's still a person.
She has natural skin under there, folks.
In these three photos, shared to her Instagram story, Britney takes selfies in natural lighting and without makeup.
Disclaimer: Britney has on eyeliner from the night before, but she totally owns up to it.
(And I think that surely we can all agree that a little makeup from the night before isn't an attempt to fool anyone)
Here's the first photo:
For starters, she looks great. To no one's surprise.
She looks, second of all, like Britney Spears.
There are some people -- celebrities and otherwise -- who look like completely different people, or even unrecognizable, without makeup.
That's totally their choice -- you can wear as much makeup or as little as you like and it's nobody else's business.
But Britney without makeup looks exactly like Britney without makeup.
Her Instagram story continues with the next photo:
Britney Spears added a caption, in case the context behind her Instagram photos wasn't obvious:
"On days where I don’t get primped and made up for my show, this is the real unglammed me… so nice to meet all of you!!"
Isn't she so sweet?
"I call this my morning coffee at home look."
She follows that with a coffee emoji. Coffee-drinkers, sorry if this is making you crave it.
(Though apparently drinking four cups a day is linked to lower risk of death, so ... maybe don't be shy about drinking coffee)
And, as we said, she owns that she has some leftovers on her face.
"#NoMakeupMonday if you don’t count the leftover mascara under my right eye..."
Wearing makeup is an absolute must in any profession where people are going to be on camera, but it's great to see celebrities like Britney show what they look like without makeup.
Not that they have to show anyone anything, of course, but it's great to be reminded that all versions of Britney are beautiful.
(Though surely we all knew that already)
Britney's gone through some rough times and she went through them in the most public setting possible -- as a world famous, A-List celebrity during the information age.
So many fans and others have seen her at her lowest points. They've also seen and been inspired by her comeback.
(There's a motivational saying that "If Britney Spears survived 2007, you can survive today" and honestly we think that it's beautiful)
We're glad that she feels so secure and comfortable where she is in life to be totally at ease letting fans see her however.
