King Bey has sparked a resurgence on a higher level of expressing female sexuality in music — specifically black women’s sexuality. And since we’re dedicated to black women, we thought it be cool to highlight female artists who have explicitly expressed themselves sexually in their music to much controversy and praise. Regardless of how critics debate it, these female artists didn’t promote unsafe sex, but they promoted exploring your sensual side, which men are privileged and praised to do without the double standard.
Here’s to celebrating female sexual empowerment with these iconic pop divas and 15 moments in pop culture history.
Taking care of just a few roses you pick up from your man on Valentine’s Day can be a task (or maybe I’m just doing it all wrong), but what would you do with more than 500? How about 1,000? What about 10,000?
Singer Jason DeRulo, 24, actually ordered 10,000 orange roses for his lady, American Idol winner, Jordin Sparks, 24. As told to Us Weekly by the Haitian singer, DeRulo rented out a suite at the Redbury Hotel in LA and filled the entire thing with 10,000 roses, all in Sparks’ favorite color:
“Valentine’s Day I got Jordin 10,000 roses. Her favorite color is orange. So they were all orange. Passion Roses took care of me. I knew it was outrageous, but they made it happen for me.”
She was absolutely overwhelmed and shocked. She was like, ‘I have never seen this many flowers in one place before.’ I was like, ‘Me neither, actually.”
Sparks took to social media to make everyone else’s Valentine’s Day look like crap (kidding!) and said she was overwhelmed by his expression of love and appreciation:
“Completely overwhelmed by 10,000 roses today from, my love, @jasonderulo. They’re so beautiful! Omg. #supersweettweet”
And DeRulo took to social media to post pictures and brag of course:
“10,000 roses fill this suite! I only wish I could’ve fit 10,000 more in here! Valentines everyday! Thank u 2 #passionroses 4 helping 2make this special.”
There were literally so many roses that Sparks didn’t know what to do with that the couple wound up gifting quite a few of them to the hotel staff to show them some love on Valentine’s Day. How sweet is that?
I’m not trying to jump the gun or anything, but I’m excited to see what lengths DeRulo would go to propose if he would do such an extravagant thing for Valentine’s Day. Now that’s a romantic!
What do you think of his gesture?

Celebrating Valentine’s Day this year might be a little tricky for some of you due to the deluge of snow that has come your way. (Sorry folks in the South or on the East Coast.)
Even if you don’t, maybe you are scrambling around last minute with no idea of what to get your significant other besides the usual chocolate and flowers combo. In either case, here is a list of creative and resourceful ways that you can celebrate Valentine’s Day with your own true love.
Valentine’s Day is here and that means boxes of chocolate, teddy bears, dates and lovemaking. But it takes more than a special day for lovers to set that mood. And that’s when your favorite love songs and baby-making music come into play. And MadameNoire has the list of smooth R&B crooners, and their best slow jams and ballads ladies (and gents too) love to listen to while getting it on. Some of these male vocalists have the looks and some honestly just have the voices, but either way, women love them.
To start of your Valentine’s Day weekend, we decided to create a playlist that’s perfect to get you in the mood of love. Whether you’re enjoying a crush or progressing in your relationship, there’s a song to match your situation — and you don’t have to be ashamed to let your coworkers hear it through your headphones at work. Don’t worry, we’ll drop the raunchy, meeting in my bedroom type of list later on today, but for now here’s our Safe for Work Valentine’s Day playlist.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
