2017 Was The Year That Men Couldn’t Stop Posting Thirst Traps

We are almost done with 2017 and, tbh, so many people cannot wait for this year to be over. It has tested our strength, commitment, and overall well-being. Now, while most of the year feels like a dumpster fire speeding down the freeway, there were some good moments – moments that ignited a fire in other areas. Celebs were out there setting thirst traps for us on social media, and we gobbled them up, screenshotting and sending to our friends to share in the thirst.

Let’s take a moment to remember some of the thirstiest thirst trap posts on Instagram from 2017.

Laith Ashley De La Cruz

Model. Singer. Thirst enthusiast. If you don’t follow him yet, you are missing out on some gold. We see you licking your lips, boy.

Leonardo Nam

Baby pool time! Get out there and try something new. #poolday #thebest #daddytime

A post shared by Leonardo Nam (@leonardo_nam) on

You might recognize the Argentine-Korean actor from his role in “Westworld.” When he isn’t repairing robots for a futuristic adult theme park for the rich, you can catch Nam on the gram lounging with the kids. There is just something about seeing a man with kids that makes everyone swoon.

Jesús “Chyno” Miranda

Buenas noches #Lima ??

A post shared by CHYNO MIRANDA (@chynomiranda) on

The singer took a huge leap this year when he proposed to his fiancée. The proposal video was so romantic that hearts around the world melted. But that hasn’t stopped him from giving his fans some tasty shirtless pics on Instagram.

Adam Rodriguez

Rodriguez is well suited to play the unattainable heartthrob on “Jane the Virgin” because, just look at him. That is a smile that could light up any opera house. ?



A post shared by Miguel (@miguel) on

Miguel definitely reinvented himself this year. Gone are the super suave days of suits, ties, and stage jumping. The Miguel we got in 2017 is a walking thirst trap with a bad boy edge and a gritty style. Who else is here for it?

Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez

Ya casi llega la navidad ?? ??

A post shared by Saul Alvarez (@canelo) on

It’s beginning to look a lot like Thirstmas! The boxing champion definitely delivered with a special Christmas-themed thirst post just in time for the holidays. The only question we have is: “What’s behind the wreath?”

William Levy

Nothing to see here except William Levy soaking in the tub with a glass of scotch (maybe?). It’s got us all feeling extremely parched.

Bruno Mars


A post shared by Bruno Mars (@brunomars) on

Okay, let’s be honest for a second here. Bruno Mars is one long, walking, talking, and singing thirst trap. It is impossible not to lose yourself while staring at a photo of this man. It’s pretty obvious that he knows this judging by the way he looks at the camera in every ?? single ?? photo. ??

Tyler Posey

Do you remember Jennifer Lopez’ son from “Maid In Manhattan”? Well, this is him now. Feel old yet? The heartthrob is on MTV’s “Teen Wolf” and he loves to use that sexy persona on his social media. What’s hotter than a half-naked man singing by the pool? Maybe a half naked actor trying to sing by the pool. Just makes your heart melt.

Ezequiel Lavezzi

Gozando! ? #Sanya #Placer ?? ph: @yanaisok

A post shared by Ezequiel Lavezzi (@pocho22lavezzi) on

If there is one thing you will learn from scrolling through futbolista Ezequiel Lavezzi’s Instagram page is that he loves any opportunity to take his shirt off. He is also a fan of those “spontaneous” photos of him staring off into the distance contemplating life and stuff. Did we mention he loves being topless?

Romeo Santos

With the slightest tilt of his hat, Santos has given us one of the best thirst traps of the year. Seems like the award-winning singer did tone it down a bit by not hitting us with the full dimple, but damn if that look he gives doesn’t do something to us.

Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez

You might think that Chicharito is just a sweet, kind, young man but he knows how to subtly post a thirst trap…or so he thought. You don’t make a lowkey doggystyle joke in a photo like the one above without calling into question just how much of a nice young man you really are. And we’re not mad about it.

Ricky Martin

Up close with this rainbow. ?? . #nofilter

A post shared by Ricky (@ricky_martin) on

Okay. Posting a photo of your feet on the beach or even on a fun floor is not that out of the ordinary, but the undies around the ankles implies something sexy is afoot. There really is only one way to look at this picture and we’re pretty sure you knew that when you posted it. ¡Escándalo!

Luis Fonsi

Hay. Mira aqui. One international smash hit and suddenly someone is posting sweaty, post-workout selfies. You do have to give him credit for knowing how to furrow his brow just enough to make him look like a lost puppy though. Perhaps he learned this from dancing Italian sugar daddy businessman Gianluca Vacchi.

Prince Royce

It must be so awkward to be caught outside of your hotel room with your shirt off. Well, Prince Royce doesn’t look too embarrassed even with what is clearly paparazzi taking photos of him in his half-dressed state. I’m not sure what this pose is, but it’s working hard to get our hearts racing.

Laz Alonso

Another man, another sweaty after workout selfie. We get it. But, like, you do know that sweat stinks, right?


Cuerpo sano, mente sana ??

A post shared by MALUMA (@maluma) on

No thirst trap post is complete without the king of the thirst trap – Maluma. This man has spent 2017 posting one sexy pic after another. How many will it take until he sets every phone on fire with his hotness? Guess he’ll just have to keep posting them until we find out.

Ocasio-Cortez Didn’t Drop The F Bomb On ‘The Late Show With Stephen Colbert’ So People Should Just Chill


Ocasio-Cortez Didn’t Drop The F Bomb On ‘The Late Show With Stephen Colbert’ So People Should Just Chill

Lawmakers in Washington — and their old school way of doing things — had no idea what they were in store for them when Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez won her historic election. Ocasio-Cortez has no issues speaking her mind, and these older, more established, lawmakers have never had a  young woman — of color — tell it like it is.

She also has no problem with schooling how the democratic party — and our country for that matter — should be handled. First, let’s get something out of the way. Last night, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appeared on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” in which the host asked her how many “f*cks she gives regarding what some lawmakers have critically said about her.

The newly minted congressman responded with “zero.”

The exchange went like this:

Colbert said: “I want to ask this question in a respectful manner, knowing also that you’re from Queens, so you will understand this question. On a scale from zero to some, how many f–ks do you give?”

Ocasio-Cortez said: “zero.”

That answer, however, certainly got the attention of media outlets who focused on the F word rather than who said it.

Ocasio-Cortez tweeted: “I actually didn’t say this, so while I know ‘brown women cursing’ drives clicks, maybe you accurately quote the whole exchange instead of manipulating people into thinking I said this sentence instead of just the word ‘zero.'”

It wasn’t just one outlet who accused her of saying the F word, so she responded to them as well.

“In a shock to no one, @politico is also running with the misattribution as well,” she tweeted. “Here’s what actually happened: I was asked a question on a late night show and answered with the word ‘zero.'”

Furthermore, Ocasio-Cortez also tweeted this excellent lesson in reporting: “This reinforces lazy tropes about women leaders in media: Older + seasoned, but unlikeable; Passionate, but angry; Smart, but crazy; Well-intentioned, but naive; Attractive, but uninformed or gaffe-prone. It’s unoriginal, lazy, and men don’t get the same either/or coverage.” Amen!

Ocasio-Cortez went to discuss other relevant topics including how the government shutdown has affected her first few weeks on the job, all while eating ice cream. (It was Ben & Jerry’s Pecan Resist!).

“So the downside is that we’re not able to get to work as much as we want to in the beginning, but the bright side is it gives us a lot more free time to make trouble,” she said on the show.

By trouble, she means demanding Republican Majority Mitch McConnell re-open the government, which he has the authority to do.

Ocasio-Cortez also talked about the social media tips she gave her fellow Democratic leaders.


They’re all so fascinated that she has more than 2.5 million followers on Twitter and almost 2 million on Instagram.

Here’s the advice she gave them.

“Rule No. 1 is to be authentic.”


Ocasio-Cortez said on the show: “be yourself and don’t try to be anyone that you’re not. So don’t try to talk like a young kid if you’re not a young kid.” She also told them: “If you’re an older woman, talk like an older woman talks.”

Rule No. 2 “Don’t post a meme if you don’t know what a meme is.”


“That was literally my advice,” and added: “and I said don’t talk like the Founding Fathers on Twitter.”

Rule No. 3 “Mute people but try not to block them.”

There’s a reason why she’s teaching the course, so pay attention! She also added that social media isn’t just for young people. She praised former Congressman John Dingell who is 93 for being savvy on Twitter.

One last thing, just in case you’re trying to come for her, she will fire back under these conditions: “If you have a blue check, if you’re in my mentions, if you’re being sassy in a way that I think is unjustified, and if I haven’t eaten in two to three hours.”

Check out her segments below on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”

Tomi Lahren And Stephanie Hamill Have Publicly Shaded Or Shamed Cardi B For Her Vocal Politics, And Both Were Left Annihilated


Tomi Lahren And Stephanie Hamill Have Publicly Shaded Or Shamed Cardi B For Her Vocal Politics, And Both Were Left Annihilated

Don’t come for Bronx women. Cardi B has warned the world before, yet conservative white women are still trying to square off with the rapper and expecting to come out on top. In the last week, both Tomi Lahren and Stephanie Hamill have publicly shaded or shamed Cardi for her vocal politics, and both were left annihilated after the ‘hood Einstein hit them with verbal jabs.

It started on Wednesday, when Lahren, a Fox Nation host and supporter of Donald Trump, tweeted that the “Money” rapper was the “latest genius political mind to endorse Democrats,” trying to disparage the artist’s political intelligence. She was responding to a video Cardi had posted on Instagram where she criticized the president for initiating the longest government shutdown in US history and expecting government employees to work without pay.

Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, never one to stay silent for too long after a slight, fired back, warning, “Leave me alone I will dog walk you.”

Lahren, with her entitlement and affinity for controversy always present, responded, “I’m sure you would. Still doesn’t make your political rambling any less moronic. #BuildthatWall”

Then, just as Cardi had alerted her, she linguistically dragged tf out of Lahren.

“You’re so blinded with racism that you don’t even realize the decisions the president you root for is destroying the country you claim to love so much .You are a perfect example on no matter how educated or smart you think you are you still a SHEEP,” she shot off to Lahren, who has yet to respond.

Instead, on Monday, another white conservative commentator thirsty to feed off of Cardi’s stardom came for the Dominican-Trinidadian act, this time both minimizing her intelligence and slut-shaming her.

Also on Twitter, Fox News host Stephanie Hamill tweeted a video of Cardi’s latest song “Twerk” and asked, “In the Era of #meToo how exactly does this empower women? Leftists, @iamcardib , feel free to chime in. THX ..”

Belcalis didn’t hesitate to reply, giving the lost Hamill a quick lesson on feminism in the process.

“It says to women that I can wear and not wear what ever I want. do [whatever] I want and that NO still means NO. So Stephanie chime in..If I twerk and be half naked does that mean I deserve to get raped and molested ? I want to know what a conservative woman like you thinks,” she wrote.

Hamill, who thought it acceptable to criticize a woman and then ask her to help her ratings by appearing on her show, responded with alleged concern that sexually empowered women are harmful because, to her, sexual women can’t be intelligent or demand respect.

“I agree, No means NO, NO MATTER what! But this video, & others like this sexually objectify women. I think this hurts all women & the cause. We’re not sex OBJECTS! Clearly we see things differently, (maybe I’m just a hater bc I can’t Twerk ????) Come on my show, debate me!”

No word yet on whether Cardi will take Hamill up on her offer (fingers crossed she says hell nah and continues using her own social media, where she already has millions of followers, for her astute political takes), but let her clapbacks send a signal to all conservative white commentators to leave her tf alone.
