2016. What a year, right?
It felt like every time we checked our phones we learned that something else had died: a beloved celebrity, American democracy, our will to carry on...
Fortunately, this uniquely horrendous orbital period also gave us something to be grateful for:
Yes, we're talking about Bella Thorne bikini selfies.
That is literally the only good thing to come out of the past 12 months, and anyone who tells you otherwise is trying to fill your head with mainstream media lies. #Pizzagate
Okay, maybe we're exaggerating.
If you live in Chicago, you can reflect fondly on the Cubs winning the world series, but even that's tainted by the theory that the victory was a result of a conspiracy masterminded by Obama and Bill Murray. #DeepDishPizzagate
Anyway, back to partially nude Bella.
Was she posing for racy selfies prior to 2016?
Possibly. We don't really know.
She was a child star for years, but it was only in 2016 that the grownup world began to pay attention to her social media pages.
(Which we imagine had more than a little to do with the fact that Bella turned 18 at the end of 2015.)
It's tough this time of year, as even in the warmer climes of Florida and California (the two states where Bella has made her home) it's not exactly bikini season, but that's not stopping our girl from stripping down to swimwear.
Bella recently took a trip to Vegas with her sister and her new boyfriend, Tyler Posey.
The ladies hit up their hotel's indoor pool and posed for some pics, because they understand that bikini selfies are the only real way to make America great again.
It looks like there was some dancing, and probably a fair amount of jiggling involved.
Is this the most important news story you'll read today?
Possibly, but only if it's also the only news story you read today.
Look, you have the rest of your life to keep abreast of current events, so why not take five minutes to keep abreast of a semi-famous set of breasts?
The real news divides, while Bella Thorne bikini updates remind us of the one thing that we can all agree on:
Namely, that boobs and the Internet are two great tastes that taste great together.
