Female entertainers have long used the stage as a means of embracing and expressing their sexuality and empowering other women to do so. With Jill Scott recently making headlines for a recent performance of her simulating fellatio on stage via her mic, it got us thinking about the many other women who have been heating up the stage in a similar way for years, and in some cases, decades.

Jilly from Philly is certainly not alone in letting her freak flag fly while performing. Take a look at our list of other ladies who’ve pushed their sexuality to the brink in front of thousands of fans.

Tina Turner

It’s obvious where Jill got her inspiration looking at this throwback clip of Tina Turner fondling a mic back in her heyday. Sis had no qualms about not-so-subtly letting the crowd know exactly what she meant when she sang about what she needed.


Janet Jackson

When it comes to pure sexiness and sensuality on stage, there are very few who even come close to the iconic Janet Jackson. She’s been serving us sexiness on a platter for over 25 years now and if you’ve ever been to one of her shows, you know that she doesn’t hold back when performing her sexy hits…and her fans reap the benefits.



While not as skilled of a dancer as most of her pop/R&B peers, Rihanna still manages to steam up the stage when she performs. She naturally exudes a sensuality about her that captivates her fans, especially when she goes into her bag of tricks and pulls out a trusty lap dance.

Teyana Taylor

Now that she’s finally getting the recognition she deserves, fans can finally see that Teyana Taylor is an absolute beast on stage. Her passion and energy is through the roof, however when she slows things down and gets sexy…you get moments like a three-way lap dance performance that’ll make even the most uninhibited blush.

Nicki Minaj

When you have a song called ‘Anaconda’ it’s pretty much expected that the live performances to accompany it is bound to push more than a few sexual buttons. Nicki Minaj is not a dancer, but that doesn’t stop her from giving her fans the over-the-top sexuality that they crave from her.

Cardi B

It’s no secret that before Cardi B was one of the biggest names in music, she was leaving tongues wagging and causing rainfalls of cash to fall upon her as an exotic dancer. Even though she’s glowed up, she still lets it be known that her twerking skills are still top-notch and she keeps things sexy on the regular.


Lil Kim

No female artist has pushed the boundaries of sexuality and femininity in hip-hop more than the legendary Lil Kim. Everything that female rappers are doing these days to be sexy, she already did that back in the 90’s and left us all mesmerized. Her stage performances these days prove that she definitely hasn’t lost her touch.



As one of the sexiest artists in music, Beyoncé continues to give her fans what the want during her live performances. She pops, dips, twerks and spins in costumes that accentuate her curves and highlight her highly copied dance moves. Things get even more interesting and sexy when her husband Jay-Z joins her on stage.

Jennifer Lopez

When you’re a former dancer you never really lose the ability to go into your bag of tricks and turn out the stage. Jennifer Lopez does just that, courtesy of her enviable killer curves and natural sexiness that has audiences longing for more well after she’s done turning up the heat during a performance.


Jill Scott

Jill Scott might not be a dancer, but she clearly has moves. She’s been singing about them for years so her “performance” the other night shouldn’t have come as a surprise to onlookers. She recently answered any questions fans might have about what goes down with her in the bedroom…and she was very careful with the “mic.”
