These are Our Favorite Thirsty Celebrity Bathtub Photoshoots

Shawn Laib READ TIME: 4 MIN.

We love admiring the beauty and aura of our favorite celebrities, and those famous people know we can't get enough of them. Whether they're doing a full photoshoot in front of some natural wonder of the world, or taking a mirror selfie in front of their mirror, celebrities get fans to lap up their pictures.

One very specific genre that certain celebrities have attempted to garnish with their presence is the bathtub photo. Getting into a bathtub is often meant for personal hygiene, but in the artistic world of celebrity photography, it can also mean a lot more. Sexy, steamy, provocative, introspective, playful, and whimsical are all adjectives that may describe the following celebrity photoshoots from the bathtub!

Michael Cimino

Michael Cimino is on a one way ticket to the top of the world right now! After completing his portrayal of the iconic gay lead character Victor Salazar in the Hulu show "Love, Victor," Cimino has taken up smaller roles that take full advantage of his incredible physique on shows like "How I Met Your Father," and "Never Have I Ever."

When he's not acting he likes to litter his Instagram with creative and thoughtful pieces of photography with him in the spotlight of the photos, with two different spreads dedicated to his time inside of a bathtub. It's nice to know that the 23-year old Las Vegas native is not only a pleasure to look at, but would also be squeaky clean if we ever met him in the real world!

Charlie Puth

Charlie Puth has the voice of an angel, and quite a nice body to look at as well! This 31-year-old singer-songwriter has been quite successful since his work on the Wiz Khalifa track "See You Again" released in 2015. In the eight years since this mega-hit, Puth has explored different collaborations and solo efforts behind the microphone, releasing three albums of his own music up to this point.

Puth also has been accused of "queerbaiting" in recent years after he attracted a large LGBTQ+ audience on social media. No matter who Puth is trying to get the attention of, we certainly enjoy when he lets loose with himself and gets inside of the bathtub to show off in his most recent photoshoot!

Lady Gaga

What else can be said about Lady Gaga that hasn't already been said? This versatile performer is game to try anything and has been revolutionizing the music industry for over 15 years, especially inspiring women and LGBTQ+ people to take a chance on what they believe in. Gaga is all about self-expression, and when fans see her fearless desire to try something that has never been done before, it sends shivers down our spines!

Gaga once left a bathtub full of blood when she left a hotel room in London, but we don't want to focus on that debacle right now. Instead, let's celebrate this set of IG photos in which Gaga allowed her fans to see the post-show relaxation time in the tub that it takes to rejuvenate her for the next set of shows!

Tupac Shakur

Tupac Shakur is probably the last person you would have expected posing in a bath back in the day, but his gold-chained censorship while laying in the tub has been mimicked and paid homage to for over two decades. One of the most enduring rap artists to have ever lived, Shakur broke down barriers for what it meant to be a Black man in America. He destroyed gender and racial stereotypes and opened up people's eyes to different forms of masculine expression.

Ricky Martin

One of the most important Latino artists of the 21st century, Ricky Martin is a true sex symbol and LGBTQ+ icon for the ages! His hit songs like "Livin' la Vida Loca," and "She Bangs" have given great energy to the Latin music scene and its fans, helping to spread the genre of music beyond just its home countries.

Martin is also a family man who enjoys showing off his time at home. He's been married to Jwan Yosef since January 2018. Martin isn't afraid to be brash, posing with his tattoos and hunky body in this beautiful bathtub photoshoot above!

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift has meant a great deal to millions of fans around the world for a plethora of reasons. Her lyrics express themes such as love, lust, loss, trauma, and regret, but often in a happy-go-lucky tone that pumps us up and lets us know that there is hope for the future. This album cover for "Midnights" while in the bathtub helps to set the mood for the tracks she's about to share with the world.

Lil Nas X

Lil Nas X could retire from music today and go down as one of the true icons of LGBTQ+ entertainment after less than 10 years in the spotlight. Nas X has been out and proud for a few years and now and doesn't hold back. He's sometimes known for ruffling a few feathers with his fearless dress code, and looking fabulous while doing so. Here he's seen wearing nothing but the bubbles from his bath, and his six-pack abs are sure to catch the thirsty eyes of onlookers.
