Sexy... Everything about you so sexy?

We've been told this a million times... sex sells. Especially in music and, well, porn and a whole bunch of other stuff, but especially in music. You're already starting to wonder where this is going, so I'll get straight to the point. This week, Richard Russell, founder of the amazing British label, XL Records, spoke about the joy that Adele's overwhelming success has given him in a world that's been overrun by "faux porn" pop music;

“The whole message with [Adele] is that it’s just music, it’s just really good music. There are no gimmicks, no selling of sexuality...What a great thing, how amazing. At the level it is at now, it is radical. It is clearly about the music and the talent and the things it is meant to be about. Adele is a good thing to be happening."



Adele is, indeed, a very good thing to be happening for the music industry. Could you say the same of Lady Gaga? Sure, she's running around in a bikini half the time, but would you class her as sexy? With the message she's trying to sell on Born This Way, I haven't really bought into any sexual message. Is Ke$ha sexy, or is she just that drunken easy chick you're willing to lower your standards for? What about Britney Spears? Maybe we shouldn't go into that one. I can't speak for what YOU find sexy, but I can speak for what the good people of FHM and I do, so we're going to do a bit of a face-off today. First I'll give you FHM's ten highest ranking singers in their annual '100 Sexiest Women in the World,' before showing ten women that I believe define the word sexy.

2. Rihanna




3. Nicole Scherzinger




4. Cheryl Cole




5. Britney Spears




6. Pixie Lott

What can I say... I find talented women sexy. Do I even need to explain that all of these women are super sexy? Yes, the girls featured in FHM as well. What say you, peeps... who are the "sexiest" women in music?
