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.

America Ferrera Celebrates 20th Anniversary Of Working On ‘Gotta Kick It Up’ With Sweet IG Post

America Ferrera Celebrates 20th Anniversary Of Working On ‘Gotta Kick It Up’ With Sweet IG Post

It has been 20 years since America Ferrera’s dream of becoming an actor back true. She took to Instagram to reflect on the moment that her dream started to come true and it is a sweet reminder that anyone can chase their dreams.

America Ferrera shared a sweet post reflecting on the 20th anniversary of working on “Gotta Kick It Up!”

“Gotta Kick It Up!” was one of the earliest examples of Latino representation so many of us remember. The movie follows a school dance team trying to be the very best they could possibly be. The team was down on their luck but a new teacher introduces them to a different kind of music to get them going again.

After being introduced to Latin beats, the dance team is renewed. It taps into a cultural moment for the Latinas on the team and the authenticity of the music makes their performances some of the best.

While the movie meant so much to Latino children seeing their culture represented for the first time, the work was a major moment for Ferrera. In the Instagram post, she gushes over the celebrities she saw on the lot she was working on. Of course, anyone would be excited to see Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt hanging out. Yet, what stands out the most is Ferrera’s own excitement to realize that she can make money doing what she loves most.

“I wish I could go back and tell this little baby America that the next 20 years of her life will be filled with unbelievable opportunity to express her talent and plenty of challenges that will allow her to grow into a person, actress, producer, director, activist that she is very proud and grateful to be. We did it baby girl. I’m proud of us,” Ferrera reflects.

Watch the trailer for “Gotta Kick It Up!” here.

This Artist Has Been Breaking Barriers As A Non-Traditional Mariachi

This Artist Has Been Breaking Barriers As A Non-Traditional Mariachi

On a recent episode of ABC’s game show To Tell The Truth, three celebrity panelists were tasked to uncover the identity of a real mariachi singer.

Each contender embodied “non-traditional” attributes of mariachi culture either through physical appearance or language barriers, leaving the panelists stumped.

When it came time for the big reveal, with a humble smile 53-year-old Timoteo “El Charro Negro” stood up wowing everyone. Marveled by his talents, Timoteo was asked to perform unveiling his smooth baritone voice.

While not a household name in the U.S., his career spans over 25 years thriving on the catharsis of music.

Timoteo “El Charro Negro” performing “Chiquilla Linda” on Dante Night Show in 2017.

Originally from Dallas, Texas, Timoteo, born Timothy Pollard, moved to Long Beach, California with his family when he was eight years old. The move to California exposed Pollard to Latin culture, as the only Black family in a Mexican neighborhood.

As a child, he recalled watching Cantinflas because he reminded him of comedian Jerry Lewis, but musically he “got exposed to the legends by chance.”

“I was bombarded by all the 1960s, ’70s, and ’50s ranchera music,” Timoteo recalls to mitú.

The unequivocal passion mariachi artists like Javier Solis and Vicente Fernandez possessed heavily resonated with him.

“[The neighbors] always played nostalgic music, oldies but goodies, and that’s one thing I noticed about Mexicans,” Timoteo says. “They can be in their 20s but because they’ve grown up listening to the oldies it’s still very dear to them. That’s how they party.”

For as long as he can remember, Pollard “was born with the genetic disposition to love music,” knowing that his future would align with the arts.

After hearing Vicente Fernandez sing “Lástima Que Seas Ajena,” an awakening occurred in Pollard. While genres like hip-hop and rap were on the rise, Pollard’s passion for ranchera music grew. It was a moment when he realized that this genre best suited his big voice.

Enamored, Pollard began to pursue a career as a Spanish-language vocalist.

At 28, Timoteo began learning Spanish by listening and singing along to those artists he adored in his youth.

“When I decided that I wanted to be a mariachi, I didn’t think it was fair to exploit the culture and not understand the language,” he says. “If I’m going to sing, I need to be able to communicate with my audience and engage with them. I need to understand what I’m saying because it was about honor and respect.”

Pollard began performing local gigs after picking up the language in a matter of months. He soon attracted the attention of “Big Boy” Radio that adorned him the name Timoteo “El Charro Negro.”

Embellishing his sound to highlight his Black heritage, Pollard included African instruments like congas and bongos in his orchestra. Faintly putting his own spin on a niche genre, Pollard avoided over-saturating the genre’s sound early in his career.

Embraced by his community as a beloved mariachi, “El Charro Negro” still encountered race-related obstacles as a Black man in the genre.

“There are those [in the industry] who are not in the least bit thrilled to this day. They won’t answer my phone calls, my emails, my text messages I’ve sent,” he says. “The public at large hasn’t a problem with it, but a lot of the time it’s those at the helm of decision making who want to keep [the genre] exclusively Mexican.”

“El Charro Negro” persisted, slowly attracting fans worldwide while promoting a message of harmony through his music.

In 2007, 12 years into his career, Pollard received a golden ticket opportunity.

In a by-chance encounter with a stagehand working on Fernandez’s tour, Pollard was offered the chance to perform onstage. The singer was skeptical that the offer was legit. After all, what are the chances?

The next day Pollard went to his day job at the time and said, “a voice in my head, which I believe was God said, ‘wear your blue velvet traje tonight.'”

That evening Pollard went to a sold-out Stockton Area where he met his idol. As he walked on the stage, Pollard recalls Fernandez insisting that he use his personal mic and band to perform “De Que Manera Te Olvido.”

“[Fernandez] said he did not even want to join me,” he recollects about the show. “He just was kind and generous enough to let me sing that song on his stage with his audience.”

The crowd applauded thunderously, which for Pollard was a sign of good things to come.

In 2010, he released his debut album “Me Regalo Contigo.” In perfect Spanish, Pollard sings with great conviction replicating the soft tones of old-school boleros.

Unraveling the rollercoaster of relationships, heart-wrenchingly beautiful ballads like “Me Regalo Contigo” and “Celos” are his most streamed songs. One hidden gem that has caught the listener’s attention is “El Medio Morir.”

As soon as the track begins it is unlike the others. Timoteo delivers a ’90s R&B love ballad in Spanish, singing with gumption as his riffs and belts encapsulate his unique sound and story.

Having appeared on shows like Sabado Gigante, Don Francisco Presenta, and Caso Cerrado in 2011, Timoteo’s career prospered.

Timoteo hasn’t released an album since 2010 but he keeps his passion alive. The singer has continued to perform, even during the Covid pandemic. He has high hopes for future success and original releases, choosing to not slow down from his destined musical journey.

“If God is with me, who can be against me? It may not happen in a quick period of time, but God will make my enemies my footstool,” he said.

“I’ve continued to be successful and do some of the things I want to do; maybe not in a particular way or in particular events, but I live in a very happy and fulfilled existence.”
