On Wednesday, Selena Gomez posted three unfiltered, makeup-free photographs to Instagram, one of which prominently featured a blemish just above her upper lip.
The 30-year-old celebrity shared the candid photos of herself with her 375 million followers, captioning them simply, “Me.” The photos were widely praised by their admiring fans.
White Lotus actress Aubrey Plaza, 38, and her 28-year-old sister Nicola Peltz Beckham both left Gomez heart-eyed emojis.

A month ago, in New York City, the Lose You To Love Me singer was photographed holding hands with Drew Taggart, 33, of The Chainsmokers, as seen in her most recent Instagram post.
According to Us Weekly, Selena and Drew had a romantic supper at the Soho restaurant Torrisi Bar & Restaurant and then walked out with their fingers entwined.
Gomez had previously shared a photograph of a hazy sky that revealed the face of an unknown man standing in front of a tall hill and staring down in response to the widespread conjecture that had been circulating about the couple.
Gomez commented over the picturesque photo, Gomez commented over the picturesque photo, ‘I like being alone too much,’ and added the hashtag “#iamsingle” to make her point and put an end to the speculations.
After Us Weekly claimed that she and the Closer singer weren’t “trying to hide their romance by sneaking around at members-only clubs,” she took to social media to set the record straight.
A source claimed the couple’s dates included “bowling and [going] to the movies,” indicating that their courtship was “extremely casual and low-key.”
A second insider said, ‘Selena and Drew have an amazing connection. They’re so happy to have gone with their guts and jumped in to give this a try.’
They are ‘both very into one other,’ the source stated, and Selena finds Drew to be “such a sweet guy,” which she “loves.”
An insider claims that the dates between the Only Murders in the Building actress and the Something Just Like This singer are low-key and that the “couple is having a lot of fun”
According to reports, Drew dated Steve Jobs’s youngest daughter Eve before he started dating the Wizards of Waverly Place starlet.
Eve abruptly deleted her Instagram after the relationship, which had started as a “casual summer flirtation,” faded out and he moved on to pursue Selena.
The My Mind & Me singer had a long-running romance with Justin Bieber from 2011 to 2018, as well as brief flings with Niall Horan, Charlie Puth, and The Weeknd.
After social media users noticed that Selena’s hands were ‘shaking’ in a recent makeup tutorial, prompting Gomez to remind her fans that she has lupus, the singer has begun posting pictures without any makeup.
The My Mind & Me star uploaded a video last month to TikTok demonstrating her skincare and cosmetics process, although her hands looked shaky at one point.
Later, when asked about the source of her trembling, Gomez explained that it was a side effect of the lupus medicine she takes: ‘Lol I shake because of my medication for lupus. Also read my disclaimer. I ain’t no pro [laughing face emoji].’
The singer of “Calm Down” was diagnosed with lupus in 2014; the condition ultimately necessitated a kidney transplant in 2017.
Selena told Jay Shetty, ‘Being in moments in my life, whether it was my health or personal life, friendships, relationships, I feel like giving myself completely to something is just the best way I can love.’
She added: ‘But I never wanted the pain that I endured to put some sort of guard on myself and armor, if you will. And I never, I never let that happen because I still believe, and I still hope, I hope for love, and I hope for healing, and I hope for change.’
Gomez continued by saying that she “would rather continue to get my heart crushed than to not feel at all,” and she went on to explain how a “very public” breakup had boosted her self-esteem.
As the vocalist of “Love You Like a Love Song” put it: ‘I would probably say I started beginning to gain that confidence when I went through a breakup, and that’s something that was super public…’
Amidst her struggle to understand why she felt “so horrible” about herself, Selena realized that “the greatest gift” was “really being honest with others.”
She said: ‘I wanted to take control over that narrative because I did feel that way. But the greatest gift I got from all of that was me actually being honest with people. sharing my story, and gaining the confidence to know I am enough…’
Selena continued by saying that she tries ‘really hard at being a good person,’ and talking about how she uses her experiences with loss, grief, and adversity to grow as a person.
‘I always say that there’s blessing in the breaking and every moment that you encounter in your life,’ she said. ‘There is no perfect way to heal. There is no perfect way of dealing with something.’
