While the term thirst trap in past years has been meant to describe girls who post racy photos on the gram, it's earned a whole new meaning in 2017. Thirst trap has evolved from it's association with Insta girls to attention seeking celebs, and it doesn't always involve racy pics. So lets look at these 11 celebrities who are 2017's thirst traps.
Bella Thorne reminds me of Miley Cyrus during her Bangerz days. Whether you were a fan of Miley during that time or not, I think the world's population can come to the agreement that she was a mess. Much like Miley, when this ex-Disney star isn't starring in straight-to-Netflix movies that co-star fellow thirst trap vine star Nash Grier, it seems the young actress is doing everything and anything to keep her name in the headlines:
The only person giving Jake Paul a run for his thirst trap throne is "beauty blogger" Jeffree Star. I include those quotations because this was occupation #458 he used to try and get famous off of before it (unfortunately for all of us) finally worked, *#457 was his ever so interesting singing career. When he isn't inserting himself in drama that has nothing to do with him, he's doing anything and everything to remain relevant.
Any and every contestant on the bachelor/ette
Does every contestant get a guarantee that they'll reach 1 million on Instagram within a year of being on the show or is that just a coincidence? Seriously though, why people follow past contestants on Instagram continues to boggle my mind. If I'm going to have someone trying to sell me Fit Tea on Instagram it's going to be Kylie Jenner, not Lauren who's spent the past month making sure Ben knows she's totally moved on.
Why Lena Dunham became relevant in the first place confuses me until I remember the Catch Me Outside girl's 15 seconds of fame. When she isn't playing the victim or embarrassing feminists everywhere with her backwards logic, she's making dumb comments that are so dumb you've got to think she only says it to stay in magazines.
Chris Brown wouldn't be on this list if it wasn't for his recent tomfoolery on Rihanna's Instagram. It's clear he's not only longing for his 2009 girlfriend but presumably also his 2009 career. Best way to get relevant again? Initiate some good old tabloid friendly drama just before a new single release! Regardless this is a great opportunity to recognize how much of a human trash can this man is, moment of silence please.
If you don't know who Jacob Sartorious, I truly envy you. This 14 year old (yes, he is 14 years old) became "famous" off of Musically. He then became even more famous after dropping arguably the worst song and music video on the planet, Sweatshirt. He spends most of his time tweeting general tweets one would direct to their significant other as a way to brainwash his fanbase's desire to actually date him. If you need any more reason to think this fuck boy in training is a thirst trap, check his twitter for gems like these:
Don't worry, we're cringing too.
From faking a story about his intern getting physically assaulted to lighting his house furniture on fire in an empty pool, it's evident that resident douchebag Jake Paul will do anything to keep his name coming out of people's mouthes. This thirst trap is a new upgrade from the vineyard vine wearing, country obsessed white boys fresh out of Ohio. Instead he wears tie dye sweaters and makes arguably the ugliest merchandise for his fans that I've ever seen. That according to him sells "like a god church" ..whatever the heck that's supposed to mean. Please though, watch his music video and tell me this is not the thirst trap of this generation.
Why.. why is he still relevant? I get that since he was with a Kardashian he's going to remain at least a C list celebrity for the rest of his life, but why is everyone so enamoured with his love life? Let's be honest it isn't a coincidence paparazzi continue to "stumble" upon him with his roster of
Katy Perry is a recent member of the thirst trap club, I mean what else would you call someone who literally let cameras record her 24/7 for 4 straight days. I don't blame her though, with the severely lack lustre ticket sales for her upcoming World Tour, it seems she's backed into a corner and needs to whip up some drama to make herself relevant again- fast. Apparently mentioning Taylor Swift in every interview she's done in the past month just isn't cutting it anymore, yikes.
Get. This. Girl. Off. My. Twitter. Feed. Regardless of your political standing, can we all just agree this girl has got to be the most annoying person on social media? I swear whether it's Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or Pinterest she pops up out of no where yelling about whatever ancient opinion she's got on today's events. After the stint where her one liberal opinion got her fired from her old job, I've come to my own personal conclusion that everything she says is just her way of staying on all of our Facebook feeds.
Kim's presence on this list is almost solely because of this TBT pic North "accidentally" posted on Twitter last year:
North posted this on IG while playing games on my phone. Not sure why or how she chose it but I'm not complaining RP pic.twitter.com/CKJpusHUFl
Can we please just take in how iconic this was.
