What Type of Drunk Are You According To Your Zodiac Sign

Sometimes there’s just so much happening when you’re having a night out, you don’t even stop to think about your behaviour once you’ve had a few drinks. And that’s not necessarily a bad thing – it means that you’re enjoying yourself! But, you’ve gotten this far, so you must be curious: just what are you like when you’re a little tipsy? And what do your friends think about you when you’re partying? This is what your zodiac is for – read on to find out.

Aries, you have attitude before you even start drinking. After a few shots, though, you really bring life to the party! Aries always love a challenge, and drinking games are no exception. The sharp burn of alcohol going down your throat doesn’t faze you.

Your friends have to be careful, though, because once you’re past the point of tipsy, you lose whatever brain-to-mouth filter you have. You might get a little … too honest for them. Watch your tongue!

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus, you’re such an easygoing drunk. Once you’ve had a few, you really love to have a laugh. It makes you the best drinking buddy, since life doesn’t seem so serious when people have had a few drinks with you.

You might need an amigo or two to keep an eye out for you later on in the night, though. The more drinks you have, the more likely it is you’ll fall over! Alcohol turns you into one hell of a klutz. Chances are you’ll wake up the next morning with a sneaky bruise or two.

You’re a Gemini, which means that alcohol gets you talking! You take it beyond just having a chat; most people know that you become a really sentimental person after a few Caronas.

Your friends love taking the opportunity to have a proper heart-to-heart with you. But, maybe stay clear of your sober buddies for the evening, since they may not have as much patience for your chattiness.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Cancer, you are a sucker for doing rounds. You can’t say no to another drink, and that can get you into a really emotional place. It’s not unusual for you to start crying – though it’s not all bad. Sometimes the waterworks happen because you’ve seen a really cute puppy.

And, sure, sometimes this can be a bit much for your friends. But, you have the ability to bring people back on side with your charm.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

A drunk Leo means either a lot of drunk dancing, or a lot of drunk truth-or-dare. Sometimes both! You like to have fun when you’re getting silly – but you’d rather die than admit that you’re actually getting drunk.

Since you can hold your alcohol pretty well, sometimes people can’t tell if you’ve actually been affected by your drinking! Leo, you’ll have to watch out for this, since you may end up being in charge of looking after all of the other drunk people.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Virgo, you know how to have a good time, but you don’t like getting completely drunk. If you had the choice, you’d go to a house party, rather than a bar, or clubbing. No matter where you go, though, you always make sure to plan your night before you go out. You know exactly how you’re getting to the party, and how you’re getting home.

Your friends always get a kick out of Drunk Virgo: you have trouble keeping your cursing and saucy comments to yourself!

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

If you’re a Libra, you know how to drink. And drink. And drink. And drink. This means that a night out with you is never dull – but chances are, you may not remember some parts of it.

Sometimes your habit of getting so drunk can be a burden on your friends. They want to be able to get into the club, after all, and they’re not getting in anywhere when you’re in a state!

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Scorpio, sabelotodo doesn’t even begin to cover it. You turn into the queen of sarcasm once you’ve had a few drinks. But no matter how drunk you get, you can still hold your emotions back. While you’d rather stay out all night, sometimes you overdo it, and end up having to leave early.

Your friends spend the night pretty entertained once you’ve opened up your mouth … so long as they don’t become a target of your “wit”.

Fun and spontaneous are the two words to describe a drunk Sagittarius. You’re a carefree drunk, and that can make you some good friends after you’ve had a few.

Be warned, though, because your “carefree” attitude can turn into “careless” pretty quickly. Since you lose all inhibitions, this can make you a few enemies. Yes, you may offend people. Thankfully, most of the time you embarrass yourself anyway, and that diffuses any tension.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)

Capricorn, you know your limits, and drink pretty cautiously. But, that’s not to say that you can’t drink a lot! You just know you’d rather not risk your reputation over a few extra beers. It’s rare that you ever do embarrass yourself when you’re drinking – and if you do, then you’ll always seek to make amends.

Your friends know that you can’t stand to be bested when it comes to drinking games. You love a challenge, Capricorn, drunk or not!

Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)

It’s easy to pick you out at a party, Aquarius, since you’ll always be the one telling the most outrageous stories. Drinking really brings out your goofiness and charm, and you make friends easily. When you’re not entertaining a crowd, you’re balancing your wine while you’re taking photos. You know that even if you’ve had a few too many drinks, you’ll still have plenty of memories of the night!

Aquarius, your tendency towards exaggeration can make you a dramatic drunk. People better watch out if they piss you off!

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Pieces, you are a party animal. A drunk Pisces is a messy Pisces. Any excuse to get another drink is a good enough excuse for you. You’re a daring drunk, and you’re always the last one at the party. Unless you pass out, first.

Be careful, Pisces! Your good friends know this about you, and will volunteer you to be the designated driver so they don’t have to put up with your wild behaviour.

Exclusive: Luis Fonsi Talks Working with Rauw Alejandro, Christina Aguilera, and Demi Lovato

Exclusive: Luis Fonsi Talks Working with Rauw Alejandro, Christina Aguilera, and Demi Lovato

Luis Fonsi is kicking off 2021 with a new single. The Puerto Rican superstar premiered the music video for “Vacío” on Feb. 18 featuring rising Boricua singer Rauw Alejandro. The guys put a new spin on the classic “A Puro Dolor” by Son By Four.

Luis Fonsi throws it back to his románticas.

“I called Omar Alfanno, the writer of ‘A Puro Dolo,’ who is a dear friend,” Fonsi tells Latido Music. “I told him what my idea was [with ‘Vacío’] and he loved it. He gave me his blessing, so I wrote a new song around a few of those lines from ‘A Puro Dolor’ to bring back that nostalgia of those old romantic tunes that have been a part of my career as well. It’s a fresh production. It sounds like today, but it has that DNA of a true, old-school ballad.”

The world got to know Fonsi through his global smash hit “Despacito” with Daddy Yankee in 2017. The remix with Canadian pop star Justin Bieber took the song to new heights. That was a big moment in Fonsi’s music career that spans over 20 years.

There’s more to Fonsi than “Despacito.”

Fonsi released his first album, the fittingly-titled Comenzaré, in 1998. While he was on the come-up, he got the opportunity of a lifetime to feature on Christina Aguilera’s debut Latin album Mi Reflejo in 2000. The two collaborated on “Si No Te Hubiera Conocido.” Fonsi scored multiple Billboard Hot Latin Songs No. 1s in the years that followed and one of the biggest hits was “No Me Doy Por Vencido” in 2008. That was his career-defining romantic ballad.

“Despacito” remains the second most-viewed music video on YouTube with over 7.2 billion views. The hits did not stop there. Later in 2017, he teamed up with Demi Lovato for “Échame La Culpa,” which sits impressively with over 2 billion views.

He’s also appearing on The Voice next month.

Not only is Fonsi working on his new album, but also he’s giving advice to music hopefuls for the new season of The Voice that’s premiering on March 1. Kelly Clarkson tapped him as her Battle Advisor. In an exclusive interview, Fonsi talked with us about “Vacío,” The Voice, and a few of his greatest hits.

What was the experience like to work with Rauw Alejandro for “Vacío”?

Rauw is cool. He’s got that fresh sound. Great artist. Very talented. Amazing onstage. He’s got that great tone and delivery. I thought he had the perfect voice to fit with my voice in this song. We had talked about working together for awhile and I thought that this was the perfect song. He really is such a star. What he’s done in the last couple of years has been amazing. I love what he brought to the table on this song.

Now I want to go through some of your greatest hits. Do you remember working with Christina Aguilera for her Spanish album?

How could you not remember working with her? She’s amazing. That was awhile back. That was like 1999 or something like that. We were both starting out and she was putting out her first Spanish album. I got to sing a beautiful ballad called “Si No Te Hubiera Conocido.” I got to work with her in the studio and see her sing in front of the mic, which was awesome. She’s great. One of the best voices out there still to this day.

What’s one of your favorite memories of “No Me Doy Por Vencido”?

“No Me Doy Por Vencido” is one of the biggest songs in my career. I think it’s tough to narrow it down just to one memory. I think in general the message of the song is what sticks with me. The song started out as a love song, but it turned into an anthem of hope. We’ve used the song for different important events and campaigns. To me, that song has such a powerful message. It’s bigger than just a love song. It’s bringing hope to people. It’s about not giving up. To be able to kind of give [people] hope through a song is a lot more powerful than I would’ve ever imagined. It’s a very special song.

I feel the message is very relevant to the COVID-19 pandemic we’re living through.

Oh yeah! I wrote that song a long time ago with Claudia Brant, and during the first or second month of the lockdown when we were all stuck at home, we did a virtual writing session and we rewrote “No Me Doy Por Vencido.” Changing the lyrics, kind of adjusting them to this situation that we’re living now. I haven’t recorded it. I’ll do something with it eventually. It’s really cool. It still talks about love. It talks about reuniting. Like the light at the end of the tunnel. It has the hope and love backbone, but it has to do a lot with what we’re going through now.

What do you think of the impact “Despacito” made on the industry?

It’s a blessing to be a part of something so big. Again, it’s just another song. We write these songs and the moment you write them, you don’t really know what’s going to happen with them. Or sometimes you run into these surprises like “Despacito” where it becomes a global phenomenon. It goes No. 1 in places where Spanish songs had never been played. I’m proud. I’m blessed. I’m grateful to have worked with amazing people like Daddy Yankee. Like Justin Bieber for the remix and everyone else involved in the song. My co-writer Erika Ender. The producers Mauricio Rengifo and Andrés Torres. It was really a team effort and it’s a song that obviously changed my career forever.

What was the experience like to work with Demi Lovato on “Echáme La Culpa”?

She’s awesome! One of the coolest recording sessions I’ve ever been a part of. She really wanted to sing in Spanish and she was so excited. We did the song in Spanish and English, but it was like she was more excited about the Spanish version. And she nailed it! She nailed it from the beginning. There was really not much for me to say to her. I probably corrected her once or twice in the pronunciation, but she came prepared and she brought it. She’s an amazing, amazing, amazing vocalist.

You’re going to be a battle advisor on The Voice. What was the experience like to work with Kelly Clarkson?

She’s awesome. What you see is what you get. She’s honest. She’s funny. She’s talented. She’s humble and she’s been very supportive of my career. She invited me to her show and it speaks a lot that she wanted me to be a part of her team as a Battle Advisor for the new season. She supports Latin music and I’m grateful for that. She’s everything you hope she would be. She’s the real deal, a true star, and just one of the coolest people on this planet.

What can we expect from you in 2021?

A lot of new music. Obviously, everything starts today with “Vacío.” This is literally the beginning of what this new album will be. I’ve done nothing but write and record during the last 10 months, so I have a bunch of songs. Great collaborations coming up. I really think the album will be out probably [in the] third or fourth quarter this year. The songs are there and I’m really eager for everybody to hear them.

Lifestyles Of The Rich And Dangerous: Cartels Are Using TikTok To Lure Young People

Lifestyles Of The Rich And Dangerous: Cartels Are Using TikTok To Lure Young People

If you’ve ever wondered what someone with a bulletproof vest and an AR-15 would look like flossing — the dance, not the method of dental hygiene — apparently the answer to that question can be found on TikTok.

Unfortunately, it’s not as a part of some absurdist sketch comedy or surreal video art installation. Instead, it’s part of a growing trend of drug cartels in Mexico using TikTok as a marketing tool. Nevermind the fact that Mexico broke grim records last year for the number of homicides and cartel violence, the cartels have found an audience on TikTok and that’s a serious cause for concern.

Mexican cartels are using TikTok to gain power and new recruits.

Just a couple of months ago, a TikTok video showing a legit high-speed chase between police and drug traffickers went viral. Although it looked like a scene from Netflix’s Narcos series, this was a very real chase in the drug cartel wars and it was viewed by more than a million people.

Typing #CartelTikTok in the social media search bar brings up thousands of videos, most of them from people promoting a “cartel culture” – videos with narcocorridos, and presumed members bragging about money, fancy cars and a luxury lifestyle.

Viewers no longer see bodies hanging from bridges, disembodied heads on display, or highly produced videos with messages to their enemies. At least not on TikTok. The platform is being used mainly to promote a lifestyle and to generate a picture of luxury and glamour, to show the ‘benefits’ of joining the criminal activities.

According to security officials, the promotion of these videos is to entice young men who might be interested in joining the cartel with images of endless cash, parties, military-grade weapons and exotic pets like tiger cubs.

Cartels have long used social media to shock and intimidate their enemies.

And using social media to promote themselves has long been an effective strategy. But with Mexico yet again shattering murder records, experts on organized crime say Cartel TikTok is just the latest propaganda campaign designed to mask the blood bath and use the promise of infinite wealth to attract expendable young recruits.

“It’s narco-marketing,” said Alejandra León Olvera, an anthropologist at Spain’s University of Murcia, in a statement to the New York Times. The cartels “use these kinds of platforms for publicity, but of course it’s hedonistic publicity.”

Mexico used to be ground zero for this kind of activity, where researchers created a new discipline out of studying these narco posts. Now, gangs in Brazil, Colombia, El Salvador, and the United States are also involved.

A search of the #CartelTikTok community and its related accounts shows people are responding. Public comments from users such as “Y’all hiring?” “Yall let gringos join?” “I need an application,” or “can I be a mule? My kids need Christmas presents,” are on some of the videos.

One of the accounts related to this cartel community publicly answered: “Of course, hay trabajo para todos,” “I’ll send the application ASAP.” “How much is the pound in your city?” “Follow me on Instagram to talk.” The post, showing two men with $100 bills and alcohol, had more than a hundred comments.
