One of my favorite things about social media is that we get to have our reality a little bit more unfiltered (yes, I’m fully aware of the irony in calling Instagram unfiltered, but stay with me on this).

Last night Nicki Minaj joined the ranks of Beyonce, Snooki, Jennifer Aniston, and Cameron Diaz when she went sans makeup in a series of bathroom shots for all the world to see. Naturally a lot of commenters on Minaj’s stream immediately jumped to the near-nudity, but what I was fixated on was Nicki’s bare face — stunning, natural, and human. As the mother to a young girl, and someone who struggles with self-esteem myself, I love it when celebrities break the fourth wall and let us see what’s underneath all of the talented stylists and studio lights. It’s never any less striking. If anything, it’s almost always more so.

I love that in a world where Nicki Minaj spends most of her time looking like this;

…she’s not afraid to show her fans and the rest of the world that she knows she’s beautiful wearing nothing but the skin she was born in, too.
