Kelly says she's #keepingitreal.

Kelly Khumalo is not one for stepping out when she's not dressed to the nines -- so we were surprised when the local songstress shared shared an au-naturel selfie on Instagram.

"No filter, no nothing, I haven't washed and I have no plans of washing today, #KeepingItReal #Nokukhanya #TheGoddessOfLight I'm loving every moment..." she captioned the snap of herself in the car, wearing a simple pastel cami.

Fans were clearing loving it too. "Natural Beauty always the way to go," one Instagrammer commented while another added, "You pretty anyways so it's okay."

Still, Kelly's not always a fan of the natural look. In August last year, she posted a close-up of her light complexion with the caption, "“Ima BLEACH until Jesus Comes, you are too damn stupid to think that your opinion matters…”

Some commenters were outraged, pointing out Kelly was a role model to young girls. But the mother of one hit back, "I have never asked to be anyone's role model. No one I mean no one has a right to impose their believes on me I'm my own person, living my life and I will do as I please…

"So please don't tie me down with all this nonsense of people looking up to me. It's their choice I never asked them.” Earlier today the Instagram-loving star posted an adorable snap of her taking her daughter, little Thingo, to creche. "We were all smiles," she wrote, "Things changed when we had leave her, boy did she cry!" Thingo is Kelly's daughter with the late Bafana Bafana star Senzo Meyiwa, who was killed in 2014 in an alleged botched robbery at Kelly's family home in Vosloorus.
