Jordin Sparks isn't into filtering away her flaws on Instagram.

The 25-year-old singer embraces her body, particularly when it comes to her stretch marks. "For the most part, I don't put a filter on at all," Jordin told People about her social media pics. "I post a lot of pictures without makeup and in sweats. I feel like sometimes people can really overkill on the [filters]. There are all these apps out there where you can Photoshop your body and take away everything. I feel like it's too much."

As for her stretch marks, Jordin said, "I have stretch marks behind my legs and on my back. I call them my tiger stripes. And I'm good with my thighs touching. I grew up in a family where we have meat on our bones and I'm used to that." So, she embraces them.

Jordin also opened up about her 50-pound weight to the mag, saying, "I changed the way I thought about food and exercising. "I listen to my body to tell me that I'm full."

Aside from going without a filter on Instagram, the American Idol alum showed off her natural beauty in People's latest issue. In it, the photos of Jordin and other celebs like Full House alum Candace Cameron Bure are unretouched, with all of the women looking stunning without the help of makeup or Photoshop.

If it seems like Jordin has an extra glow in the shots (or just in general lately), perhaps it has something to do with her new relationship with rapper Sage the Gemini. Around the time she posted a shot of herself smooching her man and confirming their relationship, she told Entertainment Tonight, "We're having fun. He's a really good guy. The pictures speak for themselves...I don't just kiss people!"
