Washington: Kesha stunned her online fans on Thursday by posting a nude photo of herself on

The 25-year-old was preparing for the Mtv Video Music Awards in Los Angeles when she was caught on camera by a member of her entourage cleaning her teeth - with no clothes on.

The image shows her protecting her modesty by drawing her knees up to her chest.

"Just naked brushing my teeth pre VMAs," Contactmusic quoted her posted in Twitter.

The TiK ToK hitmaker wasn’t wearing much on the red carpet later.

I wanted to "feel naked with a little bit of lace covering my bits,” she joked.
