I Want My Daughter To Have Sexy Role Models, Too

By now, we’re pretty accustomed to celebrities posting sexy photos, but the common question still remains:  “What type of role model is she?” and whether or not they can be a “real” role models to young girls. Everyone has something to say about Amber, but are they missing an important part of the conversation.

Amber Rose, “new” Beyonce, Rihanna, and Nicki Minaj can all be role models for my daughter.

I want my daughter to have grown complex women as role models. Women that are comfortable enough with their sexuality, body, sensuality, and have the confidence to dress and express themselves anyway they want.

When people ask if “new” Beyonce, Amber Rose, Rihanna, and Nicki Minaj can be role models what people are really asking is “can I allow my daughter to look up to successful, creative, and sexy savvy business women?” Sounds like a no-brainer question to me.

Being sexy and successful are not mutually exclusive concepts.

“I think my daughter should have the option of finding a role model in Nicki Minaj or other successful women in mainstream media because I want my daughter to know that sexy doesn’t mean stupid or powerless” says mother Mariely Moronta- Sanchez.

Not only have these women of color overcome insurmountable barriers to get to the level of success they have achieved, they have proven that they are forces to be reckoned with by maintaining and developing their careers in a very cut throat field.

The false notion that a woman being sexy lessens or reduces her worth and potential is an outdated and male-centered notion that I am not interested in entertaining in my household.

“We’re told we need to be fit and look beautiful, but not too beautiful or dare I say it, sexy. We’re also told that we can do anything or be anything we want to be. How is then, that we can’t be smart and sexy at the same time?” states Lisette, mother to a growing preteen daughter.

Some of my daughter’s role models include Frida Kahlo and Josephine Baker. Both of these women are women of color who were successful artist, social justice advocates, humanitarians, and very sexual individuals. It’s even rumored that they had sexual relations together.

Providing my daughter with complex role models also alleviates the pressure to “be a perfect good girl.” As adults we know that there is no such thing as a “perfect person” so providing this hollow example for my daughter to look up to would be doing more harm than good.

Yes, Amber Rose was a stripper and shows her comfort in her body however she pleases. Nicki Minaj loves her big butt and sings about the complexities of experiencing an unintended teenage pregnancy that she chose to abort. Rihanna shows her nipples and loves carnival, and Beyonce sings about enjoying sex with her husband while being a mother, millionaire, and continuing to build an empire. These are not bad things. These are human things. Great achievements and messages I want my daughter to hear, own and posses.

“Women like Nicki Minaj are not only sexy business women they are unapologetic for being who they are and that is exactly what I want my daughter to know- you are powerful and will be a sexy woman.” – Moronta-Sanchez.

I agree.

Man crushes aren’t just for Mondays. These celebrity men may not share their #MCM picks on their Instagram pages, but they are okay with admitting that they’re nursing some lighthearted affection for their fellow stars. And we understand. We’ve been watching Michael B. Jordan and Brad Pitt do their thing on the small and big screen for years too, and it’s hard not to develop a crush on such A-list hunks.

The following stars revealed the famous fellas they admire a great deal and why. And while some might give these guys a side-eye, when you’re comfortable in your sexuality, it shouldn’t be a struggle for one man or woman to admire openly and compliment another.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

The Rock had no problem confessing to E! who his man crush was. And it was his former G.I. Joe: Retaliation co-star Channing Tatum.

“He is, according to some, and one People magazine, the Sexiest Man Alive. And the truth is, and I can say this because I’m very comfortable in my own manhood and sexuality, he is a very sexy guy. He’s a good-looking guy.”

These stars have opened up to let fans into their bedroom. And they have some surprising things to say about what they like in terms of foreplay.

From intellectual stimulation, to a hot bath, to dressing up in costumes on set, you’ll be surprised to hear what these celebrities get into behind closed doors. Whether they shared too much information on social media or gave a few too many details with these confessions, we’ve got all the foreplay tea right here. Get your mugs ready, it’s time for a long sip.

And if you know someone who’s dropping the ball in the foreplay department (side-eye at several ex-boyfriends), maybe slide this list their way and highlight your favorite tips to give them a few pointers.

Obama recently announced that he doubted that Americans would vote for Donald Trump, but judging by the entertainers who have shared their support for the Donald we’re not so sure? Obama, fans and politicians might be surprised at who these celebrities wound up putting their endorsements behind before today’s primaries.

This election season has many wondering where the Black vote will go, especially when it comes to democratic candidates. And these Black celebrities have put their star power behind a variety of candidates — and not all of them democrats. If your wondering whose vote will look like yours come the next election, read on to find out the voting celebrities on this list.

But keep in mind that all the stars aren’t voting. Can you guess the celebrities who won’t be casting their vote for anyone on Super Tuesday or any election after that? Do you think celebrity voting (or not voting) is a big deal? Or should we pay less attention to what famous constituents think?

Party Like It’s (Finally) Your Birthday: Celebrities Born On Leap Year

Leap year babies have it rough. Because February 29th only rolls around once every four years, they only get to celebrate a quarter of their birthdays. And since some of these celebrities are technically young enough to still be in middle school, some of our ’90’s crushes feel a little bit awkward.

What’s with leap year anyway? Technically there are 365.24219 days in a year. To compensate for those extra hours, Julius Caesar tacked on an extra day in the calendar year way back in 46 BCE. Unfortunately for these stars, he apparently didn’t do too much thinking about all of the missed birthday celebrations he’d become responsible for.

But despite the fact that they only get to do it a couple of times a decade, we hope these celebrities are celebrating their leap year birthdays in style. If you’ve got a leap year birthday, let us know in the comments section so we can wish you a happy birthday too!

Fans always get excited to hear that their favorite on-screen couples are actually dating each other in real life. But sometimes, things off camera don’t work as well as they do on camera.

Celebrity breakups are bad enough. But what’s worse? Having to see your ex every day after things in your relationship went south. What’s worse than that? Having to have fake sex with them after they just broke your heart. And some of these former celebrity couples had to keep the fakery going on for years as their shows stayed on the air for nearly another decade.

Acting always sounded like an easy job — until we heard about these incredibly awkward situations. Most of these former celebrity couples learned the hard way that sometimes work and relationships just don’t mix. But some beat the odds and managed to remain friends to this day. Can you guess which celebrity couples are which?

“Who?” Celebrities Who Don’t Know Each Other Anymore

There are lots of ways to respond to shade. You can get mad and mumble behind someone’s back, temporarily lose it and take them all the way to school, or try to be the better person and let it go. (And then get mad all over again at 3 a.m. when it’s too late to deliver the perfect comeback you just thought up).

But when you’re famous, a touch of amnesia can be the best way to rise above the drama. These celebrities heard some shady tea about themselves and said they can’t participate in the gossip for one simple reason: because they do not know who their hater is.

Is this a move you can’t wait to try the next time something shady comes right out of left field? Or is this a petty way to deal with peer conflict? As usual, let us know what you think or who you’ve given the “Who?” treatment in the comment section!

When Kanye West announced that he was $53 million in debt, we all raised an eyebrow. How can someone who makes millions get that far behind on their bills? Well, as it turns out, Kanye West was speaking figuratively about his massive bills. That $53 million is the amount that he’s invested in his own companies. And if he can get Mark Zuckerberg to invest that cool billion in him, his financial house will soon be in order.

But the rest of the celebrities on this list aren’t just broke because of investments. These stars managed to get themselves into mind-boggling amounts of debt. Everything from IRS debt to balling out of control helped these stars find themselves millions of dollars in a hole. What’s even more unbelievable? How some of these stars managed to work their way out of their debt. Get ready to feel better about your own credit card bill and learn some hard lessons in finance from these celebs with the biggest debts in recent history.

Did You Know These Stars Were Pregnant? Shows That Played Hide The Baby Bump

When an actress on a popular TV show gets pregnant, directors are faced with a dilemma: how to write a very noticeable baby bump into the show for a character who isn’t expecting. Some TV shows are obvious. Giant props, carefully placed characters, lots of flowy shirts and roomy jackets can block a baby bump. But most of us already know what’s underneath — and not just because we saw the positive pregnancy test on Instagram several months earlier.

Some shows, however, are great at hiding pregnancies for the small screen. So good, in fact, that we didn’t even know that some of these actresses were pregnant when they shot certain seasons. Now we feel like there are more than a few shows we need to re-watch for a good game of “Did you see how they hid the belly?”

Check out the shows that helped hide these star’s pregnancies the best.
