LeAnn Rimes is going all natural... Before you get too excited gents, she is not doing this to be sexy. It turns out LeAnn has suffered from pretty severe Psoriasis since she was 2, where according to an interview she did with Glamour, 80 percent of her body was covered in itchy, painful red spots. Yesterday was World Psoriasis Day and she decided to help others suffering by showing they are not alone. The nude photos show red psoriasis blotches covering her back, sides and legs.

In the caption she says, "So much of my journey, both personally and within my creations, my new chant record and podcast coming out soon, has been excavating pieces that I’ve been hiding and bringing them to the light. It’s been and still is a journey of allowing them out and welcoming and reintegrating those fragments back into wholeness. Music has been my gift, and why I’m here. I want to give a voice to what so many other people are going through. This is finally my time to be unabashedly honest about what psoriasis is and what it looks like," she wrote. "You know when you say something you’ve been holding in for so long, and it’s such a sigh of relief? That's what these photos are to me. I needed this. My whole body -- my mind, my spirit -- needed this desperately."

Along with this insta photo shoot she compiled an essay on living with Psoriasis for Glamour. She says that she has "tried everything" to treat or hide the spots, but didn't find anything that really helped until she entered her 20s. Stress can be a factor and 2020 has brought stress on all of us, including Leann. She flared up again worse than she has been in years. That is what we are seeing in these photos. This has been quite a roller coaster her whole life and I applaud her for being this venerable to her fans and other people who may be suffering and hiding.

So much of my journey, both personally and within my creations, my new chant record and podcast coming out soon, has been excavating pieces that I’ve been hiding and bringing them to the light. It’s been and still is a journey of allowing them out and welcoming and reintegrating those fragments back into wholeness. Music has been my gift, and why I’m here. But I want to give a voice to these other pieces of me. And I want to give a voice to what so many other people are going through. This is finally my time to be unabashedly honest about what psoriasis is and what it looks like. You know when you say something you’ve been holding in for so long, and it’s such a sigh of relief? That's what these photos are to me. I needed this. My whole body—my mind, my spirit—needed this desperately. With today being World Psoriasis Day, I thought this would be the perfect time to share my story with @glamourmag, head to the link in my bio/ stories to read my full essay 💕 #worldpsoriasisday #psoriasis #psoriasisawareness #glamourmag #whatilivewith
