He included a photo of the 60-year-old’s smiling face — a face burned severely 35 years prior when, as a professional firefighter, he was caught in a gas explosion. The devastating fire disfigured Gustavson’s face and left him without ears, hair, or eyebrows, according to the Telegraph.

No doubt Instagram will argue that the singer is clothed in the images - but she barely is.
