As we approach the end of January, it’s now make-or-break time for those New Year’s resolutions. All of a sudden the novelty of hitting the gym every day is starting to wear off and the whole ‘Dry January’ just feels a little bloody bland.
One celebrity, however, is embracing her kickass resolution with glorious resolve. Overnight Kesha took to Twitter and Instagram to share a no-makeup selfie alongside her 2019 self-love mantra.
“This year my resolution is to love myself… just as I am, all fucked up and imperfect and whatever else. And to let my freckles liiiiiiiive” wrote the 31-year-old singer.

Us right now:
Kesha’s Tweet clearly resonates with many internet folk, garnering over 150,000 likes and almost 13,000 retweets since posting just a couple of days ago.
The viral post has also inspired others to start sharing their no makeup freckle selfies, and this is some truly wholesome stuff:

For comparison, here’s how we’re used to seeing Kesha – with absolutely flawless skin and heavy eye makeup:
Kesha has previously spoken about her new emphasis on practicing self-love and acceptance following abuse from her long term music producer, Dr. Luke.
The singer’s 2017 album Rainbow featured the banger anthem ‘Praying’, which explores her journey of moving through pain and suffering she’s previously faced.
“This whole album, for me, really is a healing album,” she said at the time. “It’s healing from so many things from my past and just trying to get back to the most childlike, naive, purest version of myself that I can find — the most free-spirited, un-jaded version of myself.”
Last year, the artist describes her newfound philosophy on her body and self-confidence:
“It was scary, but I finally put my foot down and chose life. That was a huge turning point. I’m not a size. I’m not a number,” Kesha told Cosmopolitan. “I am a strong, badass, motherfucking woman, and quite frankly, I like my junk. Ten years ago, I never thought I’d be able to say that.”
Welp, if Kesha’s example is anything to go off – if you’re still looking for a new year’s resolution, or have decided your existing one isn’t quite right, why not adopt the same resolve?
