Everyone has had an awkward stage–even our favorite pop stars. Modern day sex symbols like Justin Timberlake, Rihanna and Drake all made their debuts in the pop world looking a little less seductive than they do now. Don’t believe us? Well, we’ve got photographic proof…

Beyonce, Rihanna, and even Fergie have all appeared in performances and music videos looking like they lost track of time and forgot to finish doing their hair. Don’t hate, folks: THEY WOKE UP LIKE THIS! And they still look just as fabulous as ever. These influential ladies of pop prove that they can roll out of bed and still look red-carpet ready!
Spreading your legs mid-dance can pull even the most flexible hamstring, so there are times watching performances when a sexy spread eagle makes us cringe. From splits to booty drops, we sometimes feel like those spread eagles are more uncomfortable than they are hot. Not that we’re complaining — we really do appreciate the elasticity of our favorite performers and the lengths they’ll go to in order to give us a full crotch view.
Instagram lost of one of its most prominent users this week when Rihanna‘s account magically vanished on Monday. A rep for the ‘gram said deactivating her account was an honest mistake and subsequently restored her account, only to have it disappear from record once again. And the world just hasn’t been the same since.
Why is Rihanna’s Instagram deleted….feeling lost……..

Pop music is full of influences, but when musicians start appropriating the aesthetic of other cultures for their performances, the line between art and racism can get pretty blurry. And with the Internet all a-Twitter with critics just WAITING for pop stars to slip up, more than a few have managed to offend by taking elements of cultures other than their own for some controversial performances. From black culture to Japan and the Middle East, no culture is safe from the sticky fingers of white performers.
As Mariah Carey has experienced delays with her upcoming album, the singer and her camp hinted at a surprise release, similar to Beyonce’s unbelievably successful LP from late 2013. It now appears that Mimi will end up going with a traditional rollout after all, but we’re still waiting to see which other music stars can make waves like Bey did when she dropped her album without warning.
Lest you think Bad Girl RiRi has been tamed by all the time she’s been spending with Drake, Rihanna is pushing boundaries again. The sexy singer posted a photo of her new cover for Lui magazine on her Instagram and the image isn’t just sexy, it’s shocking and scandalous.
Whether inanimate objects, national landmarks, or pretty much any food item in general, artists sure do love using their witty ways to talk about sex. See, they try to hide the meanings of these songs – but we just couldn’t help but cracking their code! Plus, most are blatantly obvious (hint: any long and hard object is most likely referring to a guy’s…..get it? Good.)
