From Shawn Mendes’ trio of shirtless photo shoots to Austin Mahone’s eye-popping L’Uomo Vogue spread, pop’s leading men embraced the nude trend with as much fervor as their female counterparts in 2016. In fact, they arguably went a step further with a flood of dick pics doing the rounds on social media. (Take a bow, Justin Bieber!) While those guys garnered the most attention for their clothing-free activities, they were far from alone in their pursuit of attention.
Diplo continued to be shirtless as often as possible, while fellow DJs David Guetta and Martin Garrix also got in on the act. Nick Jonas had a relatively quiet year by his standards (he did manage to flash his six-pack on one magazine cover), but older brother Joe Jonas picked up the slack by posting a steady stream of thirst traps on Instagram. Oh, and Maluma deserves a special shout-out for taking off his shirt at every available opportunity. Click through our gallery of shirtless male pop stars up top.
