Katy Perry Posts Selfie of Postpartum Body During MTV VMAs

Katy Perry's Postpartum Selfie Just 4 Days After Giving Birth Is Refreshing As Hell

Of all Katy Perry's noteworthy looks, her latest ensemble – snapped in her bathroom four days after giving birth – might just be her most refreshing one yet.

During Sunday's virtual MTV VMAs award show, the new mum snapped a mirror selfie for Instagram Stories that put her postpartum body on full display, complete with maternity underwear by Frida Mom and – in true "stars really are just like us" fashion – a breast pumping bra by good ol' Medela.

The Grammy nominee even gave a shoutout to her, ahem, glam squad: "Hair n makeup by: @exhaustion," she joked.

The post was appropriately set to Katy's song, "Not the End of the World," which features the lyrics, "It's not the end of the world, throw on your fancy attire, fears to the fire, don't lose hope." It also comes less than a week after she and fiancé Orlando Bloom welcomed baby Daisy and serves as such a welcome, honest portrayal of what those first few days can feel like for a mother following the birth of her child.

We hope Katy continues to provide such an unfiltered look at this phase of life for her fans – it certainly looks good on her!
