Hotties of Rock – Grace Potter

Grace Potter loves to perform in short glittery dresses, shakin’ all her goodies for an enthusiastic live audience. Goddess Wife is contemplating performing in live burlesque shows, so I am starting a series of posts to celebrate for her women performers who are hot and joyfully combine their sexuality with their performing.

So I may do some Hotties of Pop, Hotties of Belly Dance, Hotties of Burlesque etc., too. and who knows, maybe there’ll be a video of her own burlesque at some point??

Back to Potter – Spinner.com wrote:

She sings like Janis Joplin and dresses like Tina Turner…

She loves to show off her body and shake it for the audience as she told Spinner in that same interview:

“If I could perform naked, I would,” Potter admits backstage. “It’s just, to me, about being really comfortable on stage. When I do what I do, I have to be comfortable. I have to rock out. I want my little moment to feel like I’m free of it all and wearing a tiny skirt where there is nothing but air going up there is like the most freeing feeling in the world. I love it.

But despite comparisons to female rock powerhouses, she told USA Today that she wants to channel a godfather – of soul:

Potter often draws comparisons to the female powerhouses of rock and soul —Janis Joplin, Tina Turner, Jefferson Airplane’s Grace Slick, Heart’s Ann Wilson. But they aren’t whom she wants to channel. “If you see me doing anything antic-y on stage, I’m not trying to be Janis Joplin, I’m not trying to be Tina Turner,” she says. “I’m actually trying to be James Brown and Iggy Pop.”


Here is a gallery of some images of Potter,


There are many music videos and clips of her performing, but I think some of the best are the live performances. Here is one of her and her band performing their huge hit Paris – Ooh La La,



Here is the great music video version,


She recently also crossed over into country as the featured performer in a Kenny Chesney song and video, which just won the  Video of the Year award at the 45th Country Music Awards, You and Tequila,


And if you want still more, here is a different setting – Grace performing in Daryl Hall’s (of Hall and Oats) farm home/barn studio setting for his “Live from Daryl’s House” monthly webcast series.

From Hall’s description of the overall project:

Daryl Hall started Live From Daryl’s House, the free monthly web show in late 2007, after having the idea of “playing with my friends and putting it up on the Internet,” and the show has since garnered acclaim from Rolling Stone, SPIN, Daily Variety, CNN, BBC, Yahoo! Music and influential blogger Bob Lefsetz, who cited Live From Daryl’s House as a perfect example of a veteran artist reinventing himself in the digital age by collaborating with both established colleagues and newer performers.

There are a number of other great episodes on the site too.

That’s the intro for the Grace Potter Episode, but I can’t embed the whole show, so go HERE to watch more of the show and music. They perform 8 songs and cook and eat.

More Daring Than Bardot – More Candid Than Monroe?

Who is more daring than Bardot?

Who is more candid than Monroe?

Who is more gutsy than Madonna?

Who is magical and unreal?

No, goddamit – it’s not Snooki! Get your head out of unreality TV…

Hotshot fashion photographer and director Alix Malka says that would be Zahia Dehar:

“Divine Zahia !
A magical and unreal angel…
Candid like Marylin, daring like Bardot
and with Madonna’s gut !
She’s unique and always where you don’t expect her to be…
Beware of angels ! “

Dehar, you may recall, is the Algerian born former child prostitute who is now 18, and who allegedly slept with three prominent French soccer players while she was underaged. One of the players implicated in the scandal is superstar Franck Ribery, who has been called “the jewel of French football.” He reportedly admitted to authorities that he had sex with a child prostitute, but insists he did not know she was underaged at the time of their encounter.

She is now a model phenomenon, as you see from the quotes in this post, causing sophisticated grown men, who spend their careers around beautiful women, to swoon and gush.

This is Hollywood, by Zahia ft. Eric Roberts, directed by Alix Malka for Vanity Fair,


Malka worked for many years as art director beside iconic designer Thierry Mugler creating all aspects of a haute-couture house. He played an integral part in the House of Mugler, collaborating with numerous photographers including masters such as Helmut Newton and Richard Avedon.

Here’s a couple more of his images of Zahia from the Vanity Fair shoot:

Another hotshot photographer / director, Greg Williams, said of Zahia:

“After you meet Z you realise you’ve never met anyone quite like her in your life. She is an otherworldly, nymph-like creature and that’s what drew me to work with her.”

And that’s from a guy who has worked with Russell Crowe, Megan Fox, and other much more well known stars.

Here is another of her short video clips, this one an odd and nonetheless hot number entitled Strip-tease in The Cat Cave, by Nick & Chloé,

Her first name means “radiant” in Arabic. Check out her web site which is very cutting edge.

Paradise by the Dashboard Lights

A wisp of the Meat Loaf1 mega-hit Paradise by the Dashboard Light recently drifted past me from an open car window.

That song is a paean to young lust and the car as the favorite site of fevered carnality. I also ran across the image at the top of the post, which brought back to me, despite its apparent innocence, the ahhhhhhhh intertwined strands of teen sex, the automobile as the nighttime getaway for sexual exploration (with fogged windows of course), and the starry, starry nights. And my own personal paradise by the dashboard lights.

I am reminded of driving Goddess Wife, before she became Wife, and was Goddess-Being-Pursued, up onto Mulholland Drive in L.A. the weekend we married.

We had a steamy, wild, messy sex party in the car with the lights of L.A. spread like a dream carpet below us.


ass up face down fucking in a car

And that was just the canapé. The feast continues to today.

I close with a video paean to L.A., cars, and lights.


1 Meat Loaf’s varied career chronicled HERE and HERE. His only other real mega-hit was the Grammy winning I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That). You all in the U.K. apparently love him – his album Bat Out of Hell is biggest selling album of all time in the U.K.

And here is Paradise by the Dashboard Light ( 8 minute version, the short one(!)) – female vocal by Ellen Foley, who collaborated several times with Meat Loaf

Go Big or Go Home – Gaga Style

If you thought Lady Gaga was big before, wait ’til you see this: Gaga on the front and back covers of Visionaire magazine #61,

(via FashionIndie)

That’s now the officially Guiness certified world’s biggest magazine ever, featuring, of course, the world’s biggest pop star ever. Lady Gaga appears as a greased-up oil slick  mermaid for the 61st issue of Visionaire (auto play video and audio warning for the link). The deluxe edition measures 5×7 feet and retails for $1,500 — while the standard measly edition measures 3×5 feet and will set you back only $375.

So if you must have the biggest, head to the newsstand, and bring that dually pickup and a couple of friends to haul away your biggness. Karl Lagerfeld, whose work is also featured in the Mammoth Mag gives us a great tagline:

“Life should be Larger than Life. Size is important to escape normalization.”

Here is the back cover,

And here is  a short video from Visionaire that has a little bit of the “making of” for printing the massive magazine, and some hip urban consumers swooning over their find and trying to get it on a bus:
