Being famous isn’t just having talent, you have to have the whole package. From the tip to the toe, if you don’t look the part, it can have a negative impact on your career. No matter what we tell ourselves, whether it’s wrong or whether it’s right – being beautiful can be lucrative. This is especially prominent in the music industry, where being a hot, curvaceous woman can make your record sales go through the roof.
We’re not saying that these beautiful women aren’t talented – they have more talent in their little fingers than you or I have in our whole bodies. One thing is for sure, they work damn hard to maintain their image. Getting a body like these doesn’t happen overnight. The following pictures are the result of endless hours in the gym. These women are on top of their game and we are here for it.
We’ve done the research for you so you don’t have to. Warning – what you’re about to see might leave you a little flushed, give you palpitations and have you switching over to MTV in a heartbeat. If you’re at your desk, you might want to think twice before continuing (unless you can get away with it that is).

It was way back in 1999 when bombshell Christina Aguilera found international fame with her hit debut single, Genie in a Bottle. The New York native was no stranger to the camera though, having appeared on Star Search and The Mickey Mouse Club in her younger years. Since hitting it big at just 19, Aguilera has had her share of ups and downs, often struggling to maintain her bubblegum pop image. In 2001 she shocked the world by reinventing herself as X-tina. Gone was the poker straight hair, denim and crop tops. In its place were leather chaps, dreadlocks and bikini tops. The album Stripped bid farewell to young Christina and hello to womanhood. We didn’t mind a bit.

Mariah Carey has a career spanning almost 30 years, making her a modern-day veteran of the music industry and affording her diva status. It’s no secret that Carey is notoriously hard to work with, and as the 47-year-old star is worth an estimated $500 million, it’s easy to see why the industry puts up with it. Most things the All I Want For Christmas songstress touches turn to gold. While Carey seems to fall in and out of favor with the press, one thing remains certain – she has one of the hottest figures in the business, and she’s not afraid to show it. Never one to shy away from flaunting her assets, her music videos are a sight to behold – as are her stage outfits.
Born Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson in 1984, the formidable Katy Perry hasn’t stopped since her breakthrough hit I Kissed A Girl in 2008. It might be difficult to believe, but Perry has only been on the radar for 9 years. Can you imagine a world without Katy Perry? Infamous for her skintight outfits that push the boundaries, we’ve seen more of her figure than we have of our own – not that we’re complaining. Never out of the headlines for long, Perry has a string of lucky exes including ex-husband Russell Brand, musician John Mayer and most recently, actor Orlando Bloom. Having released her album Witness earlier this year, we can expect to see a lot more of this pint sized pocket rocket in the coming months.
Demi Lovato hasn’t had it easy when it comes to living life in the public eye. Although she started out as a youngster acting on Barney & Friends, it wasn’t until the 2008 Disney movie Camp Rock that Lovato rose to fame. Since then, it’s been a roller coaster. In 2010, the actress entered treatment for a variety of disorders, including self-harm and bipolar. That’s a lot for anyone to deal with at the tender age of 18. After successfully completing treatment, the brunette beauty came back with a bang. Lovato is now confident in her own skin and an advocate for body positivity, often vocal in her interviews about how her disorders have changed her life.
If it’s raining, we want to stand under her umbrella. We wouldn’t mind taking a day off of werk werk werk werk werk to spend it with Rihanna… Okay, we’re all punned out. Love her or hate her, the Barbadian singer hasn’t been off the radio since she was discovered by Jay-Z in the early 2000’s. Like many young popstars in their 20’s, Rihanna isn’t shy when it comes to showing us some skin. Regardless of if she’s thicker or thinner, Rihanna makes being Rihanna look amazing. Every year RiRi travels back home ot Barbados to take part in the annual Crop Over festival, donning a barely there beautifully designed costume. Even her ex Chris Brown commented on her latest outfit.
A lesser known icon on this list, singer Erika Jayne isn’t to be overlooked. Believe it or not, the platinum blonder curvy singer is 46 years old. Married to big-time lawyer Thomas Girardi, almost 30 years her senior. While most people believe Erika rose to prominence as a cast member of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she already had a strong following thanks to her dance music career. Jayne’s videos leave little to the imagination and are usually extremely sexually provocative. If you had a figure like that – wouldn’t you want to show it off? Erika Girardi markets Erika Jayne as her alter ego, and it made waves on her first season on RHOBH, shocking other cast members.
25-year-old British songstress Charli XCX reached international fame on the release of Boom Clap, a song she wrote and performed for the box office smash The Fault in Our Stars. Leaning more toward experimental and electro-pop, Charli is a law unto herself in the music industry, having come up the hard way and performing at illegal warehouse raves to garner attention at the beginning of her career. It just goes to show that if you put in the hard work and take a route other than the X-Factor, you might just garner some well deserved recognition for your efforts. What do you think of Charli XCX? Lets us know in the comments.
Rita Ora has dominated the industry since her breakout hit with DJ Fresh, Hot Right Now in 2012. Considering she’s only been on our radar for five years, the London bred 26-year-old has managed to create quite the impact. Having collaborated with Rimmel, Adidas and having hosted America’s Next Top Model in Tyra Banks’ absence, it seems like there is no stopping Ora. Why would we want to? Not only does she provide us with some killer tunes, she also looks amazing while doing it. If she’s in yoga pants or dressed up to the nines in evening attire, Rita can do no wrong. Make no mistake though, a body like this doesn’t just happen overnight.
She’s worth more than a million dollars, and she looks it too. Last up on our list is Jennifer Lopez. Jenny from the Block has one of the most infamous figures in music history. With a rock hard stomach and derriere that has garnered more attention over the years than almost anything else, Jenny isn’t afraid to bare all for the cameras. Her stage performances are pure fire, probably down to her beginnings as a dancer. It might be easy to forget but Lopez made a name in acting before she was ever a singer. She actually scored her record deal purely because she was a beautiful woman with a well-established following already. It took guts and determination, but J.Lo proved that she had buckets of musical talent.
All hail Queen Bey. Even when Beyonce was one part of Destiny’s Child, no one could have envisioned just how hugely successful her solo career would be. Since the release of Crazy in Love in 2003, Beyonce has sold over 100 million records worldwide. In an industry that is rife with competition, that’s no easy task. All of the 106 million people that follow Beyonce on Instagram are treated to stunning behind the scenes shots of the mother of three, who can still rock a once piece after the birth of her twins Rumi and Sir Carter. Being in the public eye isn’t easy – but when you look like Beyonce, it definitely helps.
There are some stars that flaunt their figures more than others, and pint sized rapper Nicki Minaj is one of those. More often that not the Queens native can be seen strutting her stuff in her music video’s and rocking the red carpet in PVC like no other. Surprisingly, the outspoken star originally aspired to be an actress, but after her career failed to take off switched lanes in her early twenties. After signing to Lil Wayne’s label Young Money, things really began to take off and Minaj became a Billboard 100 staple. Most recently, you can hear her featured on Katy Perry’s Swish Swish. Be sure to follow Nicki on Instagram to keep up to date with all of her outrageous outfits!
Well, we can definitely work out what this stars Goodies are, can’t we? 31-year-old singer and producer Ciara knows how to work what the good Lord gave her, as shown in the above example from The Billboard Awards. Although her music career faltered after her first two incredibly successful albums, it didn’t slow the Texas native down. Signing with IMG models and later representing cosmetics giant Revlon was only the beginning. As of this year it’s reported that the singer is working on her seventh studio album, having sealed a deal with Warner Bros Records. Hands up if you’re excited to see what the music videos hold?
33-year-old Aubrey O’Day originally rose to prominence as part of the girl group Danity Kane in the 00’s. After a few altercations with the rest of the group and her mentor Sean Coombs AKA P. Diddy, O’Day was fired from the group in 2008. Although the ex-girlfriend of Jersey Shore‘s Pauly D reunited with the band briefly, it didn’t last and she went on to be one part of the duo Dumblonde. As well as pursuing a career in music the platinum blonde has modeled for magazines Blender and Playboy, among others. It’s not all flaunting her curves for the camera though – O’Day does a lot of charity work.
Very few stars stand the test of time like Madonna. It might make you feel old, but Madge has been in the business since the early 80’s – that’s almost 40 years tearing up the stage. Few people realize that the singers first hit was Holiday, not Like a Virgin. Madonna was part of the emergence of MTV, one of the first stars to film music videos. Doubtless, this helped with her success and made her an icon. Can you remember the Like a Virgin video? Of course you can. How could you forget? From black lace to Marilyn Monroe curls, the 59-year-old has proved over the decades that she has got the goods. With no sign of slowing down, she still retains her beauty and loves to shock us.
Nicole Sherzinger wasn’t always the confident, vibrant woman we all know and love. After her first band Eden’s Crush disbanded, she went on to join the Burlesque style group, The Pussycat Dolls and have major success, but it wasn’t all smooth sailing. After successfully auditioning and being told she needed to wear lingerie to perform in, this sparked a battle with bulimia that would last for 8 years. Thankfully, she conquered the disease and went on to become an advocate for self-love and positivity. While we haven’t had any new music from the now solo star in a while, Scherzy has been keeping herself busy with acting roles. We do miss her time with The Pussycat Dolls though – and those outfits.
