Stripped bare! Selena Gomez poses topless in saucy black and white image to promote her new album's release
There is a month to go until Revival hits the shelves so this star better hope she does not have to ditch an article of clothing every time she plugs the new CD - as she has left little to the imagination already.
Selena Gomez continued with her campaign to ditch her Disney past on Tuesday, posting a near naked photograph on her Instagram.
It is not clear that the stripped back - in more ways than one - photo will be the cover for the new album which will be her first in two years.

New cover art? Selena Gomez continued with her campaign to ditch her Disney past on Tuesday, posting a near naked photograph on her Instagram to promote her upcoming album, Revival, however, it is not clear if the image will be the cover of the release
With little but her own body to cover her, the 23-year-old used the image to let fans know to expect her new album on October 9.
The star's current single Good For You, already has heralded that fans can expect a very adult album this time around.
That combined with this latest image - which is both haunting and sexy while leaving the star venerable and exposed - suggests she does not plan to hold back this time around.
In the black and white picture, Selena sits on the ground with her knee drawn up towards her and her arms crossed over her naked chest.
Build up: Just before the pop star posted the raw and racy snap, she put up an Instagram image that had just 'This is my...' written in black against a white background
Truth telling: The star tweeted last week about how insecure she used to be about her low voice
Ensuring she does not show off too much of herself, the Come & Get It star wears a pair of black knicker briefs and her dark hair is left out and to cascade over her cleavage.
Just before the pop star posted the raw and racy snap, she put up an Instagram image that had just 'This is my...' written in black against a white background.
Body confident: The 23-year-old also shared this image on her Instagram to promote an event for the new album
The words and the image all point to the possibility that Selena plans to make her real emotions known through her songs.
The star has already started on a truth telling mission last week, revealing that she was once very self-conscious about the tone and register of her voice.
The actress and singer opened up about her insecurities in a tweet explaining how she has learned to love the way she speaks.
'I was always insecure with my speaking voice because it's so low,' the 23-year-old posted on her Twitter account. 'I never felt like it was feminine-sounding.'
Selena went on: 'I didn't know it would be such an asset to who I am now, though. It adds a cool, personal quality. It's exciting.'
While all this may be exciting, the pop star confesses she is also nervous about her new release.
But, she told Entertainment Tonight last month, while she's excited about the new music, she's also nervous about how fans will react.
'I've been so stressed about everything from the second single to how we're going to present the album,' she told the TV show.
A lot going on: In addition to her new album, the singer has recently mended her friendship with Taylor Swift and the pair were seen enjoying the MTV VMAs last week
