Mariah Carey, who just celebrated her 43rd birthday on Wednesday, March 27, posted a photo of herself on her Instagram account looking fresh-faced on her big day.

The photo, which was posted on Wednesday, has been liked on the social networking site over 38,000 times and at the time of this writing, features over 1,900 comments.

Carey is seen in the photo with her hair pulled back hugging a lamb with the caption, "Love to all the lambily!!! #WWLD." Carey often calls her fans "lambs" much like Lady Gaga calls her fans "little monsters."

The singer does not indicate that she is without makeup in the photo, but the look is toned down from what audiences have seen during her time on "American Idol." If she did post a photo without makeup, she wouldn't be the first celebrity to do so. Check out our gallery on celebrities without makeup here.

Carey currently serves as a judge on the reality competition program with Keith Urban, Randy Jackson and rapper Nicki Minaj. Carey and Minaj had a tense relationship during the auditions process of series with reports claiming the two got into an explosive and expletive-filled argument on set.

The singer told Barbara Walters in an interview in January that she hired extra security after the confrontation because "it felt like an unsafe work environment."

Earlier, Walters had said on "The View" that Carey claimed multiple people heard Minaj say, "If I had a gun, I would shoot the b----" following her expletive-filled rant. The rapper has denied saying such a thing.

"Look, I'm doing this show, this is fun, but it's not my life," Carey told Walters during the January interview. "For all the drama, I hope it helps the show...I think it's a classic, classy show and it didn't need this."
