19. Eva Mendes

Justify My Lust: The Miami mami got her start in the modeling world, where her full lips, Marilyn Monroe–esque mole and sun-kissed skin helped her flourish. It wasn’t until Eva started showing off her sandwiches on screen that her career (and our lust) rose.

What’s Your Fantasy: Since Mendes has never been shy about taking it off for the camera, you let her seduce you via Skype, slyly hitting record to enjoy her on-demand.

Money Shot: Training Day: Ethan Hawke bursts into the bedroom to find Denzel’s naked lil’ mami on the bed, face down and culo up.

Tyra Banks

18. Tyra Banks

Justify My Lust: Highlighted by gravity-defying mammaries, this runway legend is a 5’10” monument to sex. Accessible as she is seductive, Tyra first filled our mailboxes via Victoria’s Secret as well as she did their bras, then used her talk show to introduce television in 3-DD.

What’s Your Fantasy: You’re drowning in a tub of Jell-O and Tyra comes bouncing along in slow motion—Baywatch-style—eager to add whip cream.

Money Shot: Her 2006 “Panty Party ” episode, where she drops robe to reveal a little blue lace and a lot of skin.

George Clooney17. George Clooney

Justify My Lust: Clooney’s urbane charm and executive suite looks are capable of making a whole bloodline of women unhook their bras—and it only intensifies with age. Whether clean-shaven or bearded up, the Academy Award winner’s salt-and-pepper swagger remains top shelf.

What’s Your Fantasy: Your presence is requested in Mr. Clooney ’s office. He locks the door behind you, then insists you unzip your dress—that impish gaze-n-smirk ever present.

Money Shot: In ’98’s Out of Sight, playing ping-pong seduction with Jennifer Lopez before stripping to his boxers. My eyes!

16. Megan Fox

Justify My Lust: She has zero fucks to give and it’s not an act. Sure, she’s what Angelina and Katy Perry ’s lovechild would look like. Yes, she’s inked in hard-to-reach places. But bold enough to insult Hollywood’s elite? She had us at fuck off.

What’s Your Fantasy: Place knives, rope and candle wax into an overnight bag and escort Megan into a pitch-black hotel suite. Place her hand inside bag. Whatever she pulls out, it’s on!

Money Shot: Her bikini-clad and tongue wagging 2008 GQ cover. You thirsty?

Reggie Bush Lustable15. Reggie Bush

Justify My Lust: That SOBE heat gorgeously radiates off this dark knight’s superhero proportions. An edifice of bone-crushing beauty, the 6-foot NFL star can ripple his delectable pecs and titanium eight-pack for you topless or in a jersey. His Colgate smile is just a warm-up.

What’s Your Fantasy: Locker room escapades rival the Super Bowl. Spoiler: Both teams win. You bench him; he tackles you, punches it through your end zone, then runs it back.

Money Shot: The March 2009 GQ cover with ex Kim K demands a ménage à trois.

Stacey Dash Lustable14. Stacey Dash

Justify My Lust: Stacey Lauretta Dash is a walking wet-dream sequence. Stacked from front to back, the time-defying 46-year-old actress owns emerald eyes that further bejewel the wifey treasure she’s been her entire career. You’d be clueless to think otherwise.

What’s Your Fantasy: Perched on a sink inside a Beverly Hills High janitor’s closet, Stacey pretzels her legs around you, splooshing your mop in-and-out of her bucket. Slippery when wet, indeed.

Money Shot: Baring all between the sheets of Playboy’s August 2006 issue.

13. Morris Chestnut

Justify My Lust: His smile hints at choirboy charm, but his broad brownness inspires only devilish thoughts. Wide, sturdy shoulders crown his bulging chest; his abs compete with a high, pronounced ass for sculpted supremacy—all gift-wrapped in velvet cocoa. The chestnut never looked this delicious.

What’s Your Fantasy: You guys remix the church scene from The Best Man (you’re Taye Diggs). You cling to his enraged body, tearing at his shirt. He drags you down the aisle to happily ever after.

Money Shot: The first time he appears in The Best Man. Who knew Ricky would grow up this fine?

Angelina Jolie Lustable

12. Angelina Jolie

Justify My Lust: She’s flirted with every sexual archetype: lesbian, sadomasochist, bombshell (Oscar leg, anyone?). But make no mistake: Brad’s bish is one of the baddest because of them lips. Those plush soup coolers have powered the rise of her Hollywood star… and our zippers.

What’s Your Fantasy: Ask Angelina to put on her Tomb Raider costume, but lose the faux accent. Hike to the top of the hills, then plant your tent on her mound.

Money Shot: On the 2000 MTV Movie Awards’ red carpet rocking post-coital sheen. Her and then beau Billy Bob Thornton were fresh off a quickie atop their car.

11. Janet Jackson

Justify My Lust: She’s got killer abs and ass, but it’s not just her stacks that make this Jackson so bad; it’s the freak in her. A seamless blend of demure and dominatrix; she was rocking latex, embracing exhibitionism and cracking whips before your girlfriend could spell S&M.

What’s Your Fantasy: You normally like to command the bedroom reins, but for Miss Jackson (if you’re nasty), you relinquish control for a leather-cuffed, hands-free tour inside her rhythm nation.

Money Shot: Her carnal Rolling Stone cover—a topless 27-year-old Janet, with bare breasts cradled in her then-hubby ’s hands. Milky.

10. D’Angelo

Justify My Lust: In his prime, Michael Archer possessed a body that resembled craftsmanship by Godiva’s finest artisans. His edible smile and glistening six-pack, which ended with that lickable Ken-doll V-cut, heightened solo bath time for women across the world.

What’s Your Fantasy: He bends you over his piano stool and “provides everything that you desire,” as promised.

Money Shot: Of course in the “Untitled (How Does It Feel)” video, wearing only a Jesus piece and mischievous smile asking, “How does it feel?” Deep.

Kim Kardashian Lustable

09. Kim Kardashian

Justify My Lust: This curvy Armenian-American is the very reason Google image search exists. Not just one of Earth’s most beautiful—her willingness to wear the highest of stilettos and be filmed and photographed nude makes her the digital pinup of the new millennium.

What’s Your Fantasy: Y’all are in a swanky hotel room. She’s wearing a white robe; you’re in a wife-beater. You pick up the video camera; she starts checking the mic for feedback… wait…

Money Shot: The very X-rated home movie that launched an empire.

08. Idris Elba

Justify My Lust: His burnt sienna skin, chiseled cheekbones and towering height make him a god among men. Yet, his big hands (perfect for grasping), expansive chest (ideal spot to be held) and… hell, his entire existence supports the theory: God is a woman.

What’s Your Fantasy: You arrest him and discover he’s holding. While driving to the precinct, he insists there must be “something” he can do to avoid jail. He’s right. You pull over.

Money Shot: On The Wire: Stringer Bell nimbly unzips the jacket of his lieutenant’s “baby mama,” clutches her chin and succulently tongues her down. Slurp.

07. Rihanna

Justify My Lust: She’s like the Russian roulette of sexual fantasies. With each new hairstyle or tattoo added to her creamy frame, the Bajan beauty becomes more lethal. Her long leggy form fits into any role it pleases. Audiences are encouraged.

What’s Your Fantasy: You, Bad Gyal Rih Rih and a bottle of Patrón attempt to re-create Biggie and Lil’ Kim’s “Fuck Me (Interlude).”

Money Shot: Any of those nude photos that landed on the Internet in ’09. Cheese!

Brad Pitt Lustable

06. Brad Pitt

Justify My Lust: Brad’s numerous “Sexiest Man Alive” selections can’t solely be attributed to his teal optics, perfect imperfection of facial scruff or vanilla rocky road of chisel. Credit must first go to the gods who decided to give this beautiful sculpture a pulse.

What’s Your Fantasy: You and Brad are a two-person-only fight club. Preparing  for a delicious beating, he pulls out his big guns and python. You two then lock horns.

Money Shot: In 1991’s Thelma & Louise as the original naked cowboy, rocking only a blow dryer and dungarees. Ride ’em!

Beyonce Lustable

05. Beyoncé

Justify My Lust: With a single eyelash bat, her gaze shifts from seducer star to girl-next-door. Not even her husband can resist smacking that ass in public. And when she isn’t shaking tail feathers she’s running the world on two of the longest, loveliest pieces of caramel.

What’s Your Fantasy: You’re in a Pepsi commercial dressed like a vending machine. Beyoncé, looking to quench her thirst, reaches down and uncorks your bottle top. Ahhh!

Money Shot: While seducing Terrence Howard on the 2005 BET Awards stage, in a benevolent cinnamon dress, Bey drops her bootylicious on his zipper. Uh oh! Uh oh!

Sofia Vergara Lustable

04. Sofia Vergara

Justify My Lust: Built like a retro Coke bottle (even her Pepsi endorsees would agree), Sofia is rack city ’s reigning queen, empress and alderman. The impossibly 40-year-old Modern Family MILF defines (and translates) “sex” with a Colombian accent that’s equal vocal aphrodisiac.

What’s Your Fantasy: You’re blind to the blue Pacific water and glaring sun as your entire face is buried in Sofia’s bosom—you’re motor-boating on a motorboat!

Money Shot: Spread-eagle in Soul Plane’s cockpit, teaching the sexiest aviation lesson ever. Heels up!

03. Denzel Washington

Justify My Lust: Whether via VHS or Blu Ray, the leading man of our generation has kept nipples as hard as his two Oscars. That smile turns blues mo’ wetter; his stare marks an X on G-spots; and a 6-foot tailored swag keeps him starring in your dreams as the Inside Man.

What’s Your Fantasy: Denzel is wearing both his pilot’s suit and your birthday suit. You’re in his ummm cockpit. You’re shaking, but he’s cucumber cool, controlling all the turbulence from behind.

Money Shot: Naked in ’91’s Ricochet, barely covered by that hatin’-ass bottom locker door. Ugh.

Halle Berry Lustable02. Halle Berry

Justify My Lust: For over two decades, Berry has stood on our mantle as a bronze paragon of the perfect woman (wifey!). Her 360 of flawless—that smile, skin, legendary cropped coiffure—has kept both father and son at full attention since she was poking Eddie Murphy in the forehead.

What’s Your Fantasy: Halle is on your couch! What do you do now? That’s when she turns to you slowly and whispers, “I just want you to make me feel good…”

Money Shot: Berry was at her absolute peak in 2001’s Swordfish—rocking black lace lingerie, a spiked ’do and fully loaded phallic symbol. Bang! Bang!

Jennifer Lopez Lustable List
01. Jennifer Lopez

There hasn’t been a moment over the last 20 years where Ms. Lopez wasn’t a sexual fantasy (we’re grading that Marc Anthony period on a curve). Whether her 34-26-38 frame was pushing George Clooney or Fiats, J. Lo consistently used her business brains and boricuan assets. If there’s a starlet who’s done it bigger, she hasn’t done it longer. And if she’s earned more cash, she definitely doesn’t own this ass. There can only be one uno.

18 Reasons Why She’s Our Murda Mami

1. Original b-Girl—birthplace is the mecca of Hip-Hop: de bronx, my friend!

2. Of 100 percent uncut Puerto Rican descent.

3. That smile + those cheekbones = Money; as in “Take it all, mami.”

4. Every dance scene in her homage video to Flash-dance “i’m Glad.”

5. Thighs of supple perfection. Beats by Dre has nada on these earphones.

6. Butter pecan skin. Should be endorsed by a Wu-Tang classic.

7. Hips that double as handlebars for when it’s “Debo” time.

8. Those white pants she wore to MTv’s 2000 VMAs.

9. Diddy wifed that!

10. She got rid of wifey Marc Anthony.

11. August 1999 vibe cover: Living With La vida Loca.

12. July 2003 vibe cover: Sexy issue.

13. The legendary green silk chiffon Versace dress she wore to the 2000 Grammys.

14. Hairstyles for days (dais?). Señora got her own!

15. Walked into the new millennium $100 mil strong. Señora got her own!

16. That nude leg outside of her Anthony vaccarello 2013 Grammy dress.

17. Three years in the 40/40 club and still muy caliente!

18. Ass, but not least...

Aaliyah during TNT Presents - A Gift of Song - New York - January 1, 1997 in New York City, New York, United States.

Fans Rally For Aaliyah's Discography To Be Released On Streaming Platforms

As another day passes without Aaliyah's music on streaming platforms, fans are looking for answers.

Over the weekend, the hashtag #FreeAaliyahMusic appeared on Twitter in light of song battles between Swizz Beats vs. Timbaland and Ne-Yo vs. Johnta Austin. The latter opponents played their collaborations with the late singer, proving Baby Girl's dynamic relevancy in the age of modern R&B. As songs like "I Don't Wanna" and "Come Over" picked up plays on YouTube, the hashtag pointed out the tragedy of her songs not existing on platforms like Spotify, Tidal and Apple Music.

Aaliyah's only album on multiple platforms is her 1994 debut, Age Ain't Nothing But A Number. Other albums like the platinum-selling One in A Million and Aaliyah are being held in a vault of sorts along with other unmixed vocals by her uncle and founder of Blackground Records, Barry Hankerson.

Hankerson has built up a mysterious yet haunting aura over the years due to his refusal to release Aaliyah's music on streaming platforms. Reasons are unknown but Stephen Witt's 2016 investigation revealed business deals like the shift in distribution from  Jive Records to Atlantic helped Hankerson take ownership of the singer's masters. The deal was made in 1996 when Blackground featured artists like Aaliyah, Toni Braxton, R. Kelly, then-production duo Timbaland and Magoo as well as Missy Elliott.

Sadly, Aaliyah's music isn't the only recordings lost in the shuffle. Recordings from Timbaland and Toni Braxton have been hidden from the world with both taking legal action against the label over the years. There's also JoJo, who had to break from the label after they refused to release her third album. The singer recently re-recorded her first two albums.

With Aaliyah's music getting the attention it deserves, Johnta Austin discussed the singer's impact on R&B today. "It was amazing, she was incredible from top to bottom," he told OkayPlayer of working with the singer on "Come Over" and "I Don't Wanna." "I don't think Aaliyah gets the vocal credit that she deserves. When she was on it, she had the riffs, she had everything."

Earlier this year, an account impersonating Hankerson claimed her music would arrive on streaming platforms January 16, on what would've been her 41st birthday. A docuseries called the Aaliyah Diaries was also promoted for a release on Netflix.

Of course, it was far from the truth. Fans can enjoy selected videos and songs on YouTube, but it's clear they want more.


Aaliyah’s music is the landmark for a lot of your favs not only was she ahead of her time with her futuristic sounds she also was a fashion Icon dancer and phenomenal actress . The future generations need be exposed to her artistry and pay homage .#FreeAaliyahMusic

— RJR (@MyNewEssence96) March 29, 2020

aaliyah’s gems like more than a woman deserve to be in streaming sites #FreeAaliyahMusic

— k (@grandexrocky) March 30, 2020

I saw #FreeAaliyahMusic and IMMEDIATELY jumped into action! I can’t express how betrayed I felt when we were supposed to have all her music on Spotify by her birthday. Her discography is deeply underestimated and we need to make it right for our babygirl!

Before Megan The Stallion drove the boat...

Aaliyah rocked the boat...

Kiely Williams Explains Fallout With Adrienne Bailon Houghton And Alleged Fight With Raven-Symonè

Our current isolated way of life has given some plenty of time for reflection like Kiely Williams of the former girl group 3LW and The Cheetah Girls (ask your kids). The tales of both successful groups have been told time after time by fans in YouTube documentaries and members of each collective but Williams has decided to share her side of the story.

Williams hopped on Live Monday (March 30) where she discussed her former friendship with The Real co-host Adrienne Bailon Houghton and the infamous chicken throwing fight with actress/singer Naturi Naughton. The mother of one didn't pinpoint exactly why she fell out with Houghton but did point out how she wouldn't be interested in appearing on her talk show.

"I don't think Adrienne wants to have live TV with me," Williams said. "'Cause she's gon' have to say, 'Yes Kiely, I did pretend to be your best friend. Now, I am not.' You were either lying then or you're lying now. You either were my best friend and now you're just not claiming me or you were pretending [to be my best friend."

The two remained friends after Naughton was kicked out of 3LW, the platinum-selling group known for 2000s pop hits like "No More (Baby I'ma Do Right)" and "Playas Gon' Play." Williams and Houghton were eventually picked to be apart of The Cheetah Girls with then-Disney darling Raven-Symonè and dancer Sabrina Bryan.

Williams went on to discuss her fight with Naughton, which she denies had anything to do with her skin color. With her mother near, Williams claimed Naughton called her a b***h, leading to the fight. While she didn't clear up the chicken throwing, she stated how she was "going for her neck" and was holding food and her baby sister in the process.

Apologies aren't on the horizon either. “I don’t feel like I have anything to make amends for, especially as it relates to Adrienne,” Kiely said. “As far as Naturi goes, if there was ever a reason to apologize, all of that has kind of been overshadowed by the literal lies and really ugly stuff that she said about my mom and my sister. So, no. Not interested in that. I’m sorry.”

Moving onto The Cheetah Girls, Williams also denied claims she got into fights with Raven-Symonè on the set of The Cheetah Girls films and never outed her as a teen. The rumor about Symonè and Williams was reportedly started by Symonè's former co-star Orlando Brown.

Symonè has often shared positive memories about The Cheetah Girls and their reign but did imply during an episode of The View how co-star Lynn Whitfield kept her from losing her cool on set.

On a lighter note, Symonè, Houghton and Naughton have kept in contact with Naughton and Houghton putting their differences aside during an appearance on The Real. 

Symonè and Houghton also reunited at the Women's March in Los Angeles in January. During Bailon's performance at the event, the two briefly performed the Cheetah Girls' classic, "Together We Can."

Willaims also shared some stories about the making of the group's hits. Check out her Live below.

Kelis Announces ‘Cooked With Cannabis’ Show Will Premiere On Netflix

Kelis is taking her chef talents to Netflix. The musician will host a food competition show titled Cooked With Cannabis that’ll premiere on the very-fitting April 20 (4/20). According to NME, the show will span six episodes and be co-hosted by chef Leather Storrs.

Describing the opportunity as a “dream come true” since she’s a major supporter of the streaming service, Kelis took to Instagram to share how cannabis and cooking is one of her many creative passions. “As a chef, I was intrigued by the food and as an everyday person, I was interested in how powerful this topic is in today’s society,” the mother-of-two writes. “In this country, many things have been used systemically to oppress groups of people, but this is so culturally important for us to learn and grow together.”

Each episode will place three chefs against each other as they craft three-course meals with cannabis as the central ingredient. Each episode’s winner takes home $10,000. Guests will play an integral role in who takes home the cash prize. Too $hort, and El-P are just a few of this season's guests.

I'm really excited to announce my new show, Cooked with Cannabis on @Netflix!! Anyone that knows me, knows how much I love my Netflix, so this is a dream come true. Interestingly, this was one of those things that I didn't go looking for, it kind of came to me. As a chef, I was intrigued by the food and as an everyday person, I was interested in how powerful this topic is in today's society. In this country, many things have been used systematically to oppress groups of people, but this is so culturally important for us to learn and grow together. I hope you all will tune in, it's definitely going to be a good time! We launch on 4/20! XO, Kelis

A post shared by Kelis (@kelis) on Mar 18, 2020 at 7:57am PDT

In a previous Lenny Letter profile, Kelis shared she comes from a line of culinary influences beginning with her mother who owned a catering service. In 2008, the “Milkshake” singer sought to refine her cooking skills by enrolling in the Le Cordon Bleu school. Receiving a certificate as a trained saucier, the New York native put her expertise to the test during pop-up restaurants in her native city, created a hot sauce line, and co-owns a sustainable farm in Quindio, Colombia.

“Food is revolutionary because it is the one and only international language. It’s the most human thing you can partake in,” she said in an interview with Bon Appetit. “We are the only species that cooks.”

This isn’t Kelis’ first foray into the reality-cooking television world. In 2014, she partnered with the Cooking Channel for Saucy and Sweet and published the "My Life on a Plate" cookbook a year later.
