How do you say “slow clap” in Spanish? Because that’s just what Mexican superstar Thalia deserves. The 42-year-old pulled a fast one on the internet that’s so hilarious, it’s giving us a bellyache.


For years, Thalia has been dogged by rumors that she had her ribs surgically removed so she could have a smaller waist. Sounds totally crazy, right? That’s what we thought until we saw this August 11 post on Thalia’s Instagram.

“To all my loving Filipino fans, here is the proof,” she wrote. “My Famous Ribs, I kept them with me all these years.” Yep. It’s Thalia and her ribs, in a special jar to carry around because GROSS.

The Queen of Latin Pop, who’s sold more than 40 million records around the world, let the internet freak out about that one for awhile. It wasn’t until the next day that she returned to Instagram to post the big reveal. Because guys, of course she didn’t actually have her ribs removed. She just had a BBQ.

“Nope...Not mine!” she says before following up with a snap of some tasty looking BBQ ribs. “These are mine!” she writes. “And I like them extra spicy just like me.”

You slow clapping yet?
