Don't believe the hype!
For years rumors have circulated that Thalia removed her ribs in order to make herself look thinner. And earlier this week, a talk show in the Philippines brought the topic back up to the surface.
"Watching Aquino and Abunda Tonight, a talk show in Philippines, Ms. Aquino is saying I had some of my Famous Ribs removed," Thalia wrote on Twitter. "To all my Filipino fans I would like to set the record straight about this issue, the Chismis is totoo. To be continued.......#THALIASRIBS #MYTH #MARIMAR #AQUINOANDABUNDA @LOVEKRISAQUINO"
The 42-year-old singer then took to Instagram to post an image of herself next to a jar of ribs. "To all my loving Filipino fans, here is the proof," she captioned with the video with shock faced emojis.
"I love My Famous Ribs, I kept them with me all these years. And the Saga continues..... @LOVEKRISAQUINO #AQUINOANDABUNDA #MARIMAR #MYTH #THALIASRIBS #THALIASWAISTLINE #Thaliasnewnovela #Formalin #SOUVENIRS"
What some failed to realize, including various news outlets, was that Thalia was joking.
"And the #myth will continue... "Myth is not a true story, it is a story that is true,"...."Myths are a special kind of literature not written or created by a single individual, but produced by the imagination and experience of an entire age and culture and can be seen as the distillation of the dreams and experiences of a whole generation," she wrote on Instagram, along with an image of one of the headlines.
"I love you guys. And I loved every single story! Super fun and creative ;-) Bravo! Que el #mito continue. Me encantaron las historias ;-) muy creativas y divertidas! Los amoooo"
So there you have it, those were not her ribs in the jar and she has never had her ribs removed.
