The “Hips Don’t Lie” singer knows how to show women everywhere that dancing is one of the many ways you can express your body and embrace your sexuality, plus it’s a great workout.


  1. Rihanna

There’s no doubt RiRi feels comfortable in her skin, and manages to show us this through her dance moves like in her music video for “Work.” She is one of the top examples for showing women we can be beautiful, sexy, risqué and successful! All in one!


  1. J-Lo

The beautiful Latina singer, actress, and producer is known for her curves but most importantly for her success in all that she does! She’s not afraid to show off what her momma gave her, and shows women that no matter how old you are, you can be sexy and successful!


  1. Adele

Everyone loves English singer Adele, right? Or am I wrong? Since her rise to fame, Adele has managed to release a hit album after another. Adele is known for her beautiful and soulful voice—but she’s also known for not buying into society’s ideals of what a “perfect” woman should like and embraces all her curves!
