On Friday, the Grammy-nominated singer took to Instagram to share a photo of himself edited on a digital magazine cover titled “You”. In the photo, Michael’s arms have lifted over his head and show off his shaved right armpit.
“Dear pearls, I do not know about you, but I have been quite tired of beauty standards and societal norms for a while now,”
She continued, “Because of this I’m making you, a monthly digital cover to show how amazing I think YOU are, and because the only standard of beauty you need is YOU. And to celebrate you, I want your face on the front of My magazine. It starts with me, but it ends with you. Show me everything you hate, then I and we can prove you wrong. Send me your pictures, and every month I will post one of you on YOU. Welcome: ) “
Fans and supporters, including other artists in the entertainment industry, applauded Michaels’ announcement of the new project.

This is not the first time Michael has shamelessly shared photos of her armpit.
In June, she shared selfies on Instagram and showed off her armpits for a similar purpose. She wrote in the accompanying caption, “People will always have something to say about you or your body. They will always try to attack you when you feel happiest or most even you have ever been.
“To that I say go and eat a bag of worms. 😊 Thank you for listening and having a good day. ”
