“This is my face after wakin up 20 minutes ago, no filter, hair not brushed, lip chap all that. I never been afraid to show my real self (sic),” she has captioned the video, in which she proudly shows her followers her facial blemishes and other imperfections.
She goes on to say in the video that while some people have a habit of pulling women down who feel good about themselves, by commenting on their face and how weird it looks, it will not work on her anymore, and that she is confident as is. The rapper flaunts her morning look, and writes in the caption: “I’m confident in my own skin. You b*****s need to ask ya self if ya confidence in ya self enough that ya gotta try to bring bitches down for a hobby that’s winning and in their 20s. (sic)”
Last month, the rapper had taken to Twitter to share a picture of her “uncomfortable” acne battle which has been happening to her for the past three months. She had also asked her followers for advice, stating that her face is extremely dry.
