Gabourey Sidibe is about to teach you how to set a thirst trap — just flaunt your bra.
Miss Sidibe took to Instagram and she unveiled a picture where she is wearing a crown made of steel that featured beautiful stones.
The Oscar-nominated actress has perfect makeup on and long black braids.
It must have been a scorching day in New York because the Empire star forgot to wear a shirt.
Instead, the American Horror Story: Coven actress opted to show off the cute cream bra that she was wearing.
The Precious star used the caption to say that she was having fun setting a thirst trap.
In case you were not aware of it, here is the definition of the term thirst trap: “A sexy photograph or flirty message posted on social media with the intent of causing others to profess their attraction publicly. This is done not to respond or satisfy any of this attraction, but to feed the poster’s ego or need for attention.”
Sidibe captioned her photo: “#flashbackfridays to my birthday when my #workwife @kperryjr got me a crown! Don’t mind my bra. It’s just there to thirst trap. (It’s NOT currently my birthday)”
In another post, she talked about one of her most significant accomplishments by writing: “On October 24th, The Tale of Four, @gabby3shabby’s directional debut, will be premiering on the @refinery29 website. Inspired by Nina Simone’s song, “Four Women,” this short weaves together narratives that reflect the racism still plaguing our country. Earlier this year, Sidibe told us, “As I do with most things I’m afraid of, I talk about them, make them audible, hoping that addressing the fear will alleviate it. That’s what the film is about: addressing it, saying it out loud, and hoping that through sharing my fear and my outrage that it will cause more outrage and more fear.” #ShatterTheBox #R29Shatterbox.”
Sidibe’s thirst trap worked, and she received tons of compliments.
One person said: Giiiirrrrlll I love your boss up on empire !!!!!!!! Beautiful!!Beautiful black queen.
A second fan shared: “Lol, I thought it was a fancy shirt.Get it, girl!!! Your swag is getting stronger and stronger! Your work has been phenomenal!I love this girl! Drop dead gorgeous #KillinThaGame.”
In her new book, Sidibe explained that she always found herself beautiful and her fans agree she is that and more (funny, talented and very creative).
