If you follow Solange Knowles on Instagram, you’d know the singer has a great sense of humor about herself and her #TBTs are solid gold. The “A Seat at the Table” artist also isn’t afraid of getting real with her fans, as she did yesterday when she shared a photo of herself that many would try to keep under wraps.
The singer posted a photo a #TBT yesterday on Instagram that shows her looking a little stressed and broken out in bumpy hives all over her face. She captioned it: “my favorite (and most true to myself) selfie lol.”
While the photo isn’t current, several eagle-eyed commenters pointed out that she broke out in hives on her wedding night in 2014. Solange explained to a fan on Twitter when it happened, “Got em from turning up x100 during our second line. I was hot, wearing a cape,& happy as hell:).”
The photo has been liked more than 150,000 times, and followers praised Knowles for sharing the photo. One wrote,“And this is why we love you. You’re not afraid to show the world your imperfections. You’re human like the rest of us. Keep winning Solange!” Other people were able to relate to the skin condition. One commenter wrote, “I have hives like this. Such a queen for sharing.” Other people just appreciated seeing something real from a celeb. “You are so different and I love it,” said another.
No one has #flawless skin and we are so here this. Kudos, Solange, for being able to have some fun when things aren’t perfect.
