Rihanna became the latest pop star to show off their naughty side with a stripper-chic music video for “Pour It Up.” The raunchy vid features her expert pole dancing skills, acquired from lessons with a pro pole-choreographer. Although just a beginner, Riri took charge like a champ! The video got us thinking about other artists who’ve taken to the pole over the course of their career. From Britney Spears to Beyonce, we’ve chosen ten of the very hottest. Head down below and see how they rank!
10. “Hands Tied” by Toni Braxton (2010)
Braxton busted out some pretty nifty ribbon work before heading over to the pole. It can’t be easy to work it to a slow jam like this, so we offer her some serious props.
9. “Party In The U.S.A.” by Miley Cyrus (live at the 2009 Teen Choice Awards)
Impressive form, but minus points for not actually being a proper “music video.” And also for doing it in front of children.
