sexy-sex-songs

Innuendo is for squares! Sure, lots of songs hide behind metaphors when it comes to sex—they want their CAKE CAKE CAKE and they want to eat it, too!—but we have to give props to the following 20 artists who went ahead and recorded themselves she (and he!) bopping themselves in the recording booth and put it out on record. We’d like to salute the following aural pioneers for being bold enough to push the envelope—not to mention our buttons—and get a bit freaky deaky in the stu.

Our 20 Favorite Moments From VH1 Divas, In Pictures


We’ve already shared some of our favorite behind the scenes moments, a few of our favorite GIF-ed moments and a whole slew of our favorite musical moments from last nights spectacular VH1 DIVAS show, and we’re still not through with our gushing because we just thought everyone on the bill — Adam Lambert, Kelly Clarkson, Demi Lovato, Metric, Keri Hilson, Pitbull, Ciara, Bootsy Collins, Miley Cyrus, Jordin Sparks, Kelly Rowland and more! — totally killed it. And so here we are, reliving our favorite moments last night through photos. Our top twenty moments, in no particular order — because, really, it would be cruel to make us chose between them — look something like this:

1. Kelly that brand new precious stone of hers! Brandon Blackstock sure is a lucky guy.

…and she showed of her powerful and Idol-winning pipes. We are so glad she didn’t settle with a career as a backup singer.

2. Pitbull didn’t “Stop The Party” until all his dancers were flat-out on the ground.

3. Natasha Bedingfield, Bootsy Collins and Iggy Azalea’s “Grove Is In The Heart” was hands down the evening’s most funky moment. And look how cute these three looked together!

VH1 DIVAS Behind The Scenes: The Top 16 Things You Didn’t See On TV

VH1 DIVAS Behind The Scenes

What an amazing evening! The 2012 edition of VH1 DIVAS was chock full of unforgettable moments, ones that you can fortunately watch over-and-over again thanks to the miracle of streaming video. However, for all the show-stopping performances that you saw on VH1 tonight during the broadcast, there were a plethora of precious moments you weren’t privy to that happened backstage and off-camera. To that end, we had some VH1 insiders strategically placed all around the Shrine Auditorium tonight keeping their eyes, ears and camera lenses open all night long for those special moments that our TV cameras weren’t able to capture. And, seeing that it’s the holidays and all, the giving spirit is coursing through our veins and we thought we’d share some of the highlights with you.

So now, without further ado, here are the Top 16 Things That You Didn’t See On TV During VH1 DIVAS:

1. American Idol alumnus Adam Lambert ran out to greet the original Idol, Kelly Clarkson, and the two shared a warm hug just minutes before show time backstage. Adam did a little turn showing off his duds.

2. Speaking of the newly engaged Kelly Clarkson, she showed off her sparkly yellow canary diamond ring to a friend a few moments before she performed “Catch My Breath.” We overheard her saying “He did so good, didn’t he?” and “I was freaking out when he went down on one knee and all.” A clearly emotional Kelly also admitted on her way off-stage that “I can’t believe I almost totally cried on television!”

VH1 DIVAS: Adam Lambert, Kelly Rowland and Keri Hilson Pay Tribute To Donna Summer (VIDEO)

The music world lost one of its most soulful voices this May when Donna Summer unexpectedly passed away at the age of 63 after a battle with cancer. Because you can’t think about Donna Summer without also thinking about dancing to one of her many classic songs, it was of utmost importance that this year’s VH1 DIVAS program paid tribute to the recent Rock And Roll Hall of Fame inductee and artist who racked up 20 Billboard Top 40 hits over the course of her illustrious career.

Paying tribute to the late, great Donna Summer tonight were VH1 DIVAS 2012 host Adam Lambert, the always amazing Kelly Rowland, and the divine Keri Hilson. Their medley of “I Feel Love,” “Bad Girls,” “She Works Hard For The Money,” (Hilson solo) “Love To Love You Baby,” (Rowland solo) “Hot Stuff,” (Lambert solo) and “Last Dance” was an appropriately energetic tribute to the woman whose disco-infused sounds dominated the charts in the late 70s and early 80s. Donna Summer will always be missed, and while we’re sad that the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame didn’t get around to inducting this legendary performer until after she passed away, we’re very much proud to have honored her this evening and look forward to her RRHOF induction in the spring of 2013.

Adam Lambert Forgets The Lyrics To Some Of His Favorite VH1 DIVAS Songs

Adam Lambert is just like us! No, really. Okay, so, we’re not hosting VH1 Divas, selling multi-platinum records or breaking glass with our voices. But, when it comes to recalling music lyrics, Adam has the same problem we do: “I forget the words to my own songs!”

Adam tested his self-proclaimed forgetfulness in our “Name That Divas’ Song” game. He read lines from well-known hits by Whitney Houston, Donna Summer and Kelly Rowland then tried to match the lyrics to the song and artist. How did he do? See for yourself. And watch Divas live Sunday, December 16 9PM/8C to see if Adam got the words right as show host and performer.

We’re particularly thrilled to see that first time nominees Public Enemy and Rush, as well as VH1 Divas honoree Donna Summer and our favorite female rockers, have made the cut.

Which Of The 2013 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Nominees Is Most Deserving Of Induction? (POLL)

Public Enemy, Rush, N.W.A. And Heart Lead 2013 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Nominees

The nominees for the 2013 Class of the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame were announced this morning. The group is, as it has been for the last few years, an eclectic bunch made up of artists from a wide variety of musical genres: First-time nominees this year include prog-rock legends Rush (who finally made the ballot after being inexplicably snubbed for years), heavy metal originators Deep Purple, politically-charged hip-hop pioneers Public Enemy, gangsta rap stalwarts N.W.A., Motown trendsetters The Marvelettes, moody British rockers Procol Harum, and blues guitar aficionado Albert King.

Returning to the bill are disco pioneers Chic (their seventh nom), the late, great Donna Summer (her fifth), and a whole slew of second-time nominees: Heart, Joan Jett, Kraftwerk, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Randy Newman, and The Meters.

The RRHOF’s induction process is mysterious and secretive, so you don’t see the same kind of public campaigning by nominees for induction that you see in, say, the sports world. However, that doesn’t mean that the committee off 600 or so people who makes the decisions of who gets honored and who gets snubbed isn’t reading this blog post. So, with that in mind, vote for the act that you feel is most deserving of the honor in our poll below, and maybe, just maybe, Jann Wenner and his band of choosy cronies will pay heed!
