Welcome to another edition of Selena Gomez keeps it real, in which we celebrate HRH Selena Gomez and her endless ability to be relatable as heck.

In this edition, we join Selena as she freaks out about the US election (literally, who among us is not freaking out), and responsibly urges her fans to head to the voting station.

Of course, this isn't the first time Selena has Kept It Real™. She launched her own beauty brand Rare Beauty earlier this year, and the whole philosophy was based on that notion. She told fans "Being rare is about being comfortable with yourself," when she first announced the brand back in February this year. "I've stopped trying to be perfect, I just want to be me."

Selena and her glam team are always coming through with makeup tip-offs, but that doesn't mean she's one to shy away from a no-makeup moment of her own. In fact, she's already had a few au naturale moments this year.

There was that time she showed off her gorgeous curls, that time she plugged her pal's swimwear in a gorgeous makeup-free snap on the beach, and let's not forget when she literally defied the laws of ageing in her Benjamin Buttonesque no-makeup selfie back in May.

She's also just generally one to make bold statements of self-assurance - take that time she proudly exhibited her kidney transplant scar - a move which earned her serious praise from one of the royals.

This time round, she took to Instagram stories urging her fans to make us of their vote, saying:

"Hey guys. I know that many of you have voted, and I'm so proud, and I'm so happy that you did but there is plenty of other people who haven't. And I think they don't plan to, so please don't use mail-in ballots. Please vote in person at this point if you can, especially in my hometown like Texas and Pennsylvania and Florida, your voice matters. So many people think that it doesn't matter, but other elections have been this close before, so you have to understand that your voice does matter, and it's so important. And I'm just so thankful that you guys are listening, and I hope that you can get out there and do everything that you can."

She also chatted with Stacy Abram on the matter via IGTV - also something that's worth a watch.

Looking incredible before bed and saving the world via IG stories. Is there anything this woman can't do?
