Female entertainers have long used the stage as a means of embracing and expressing their sexuality and empowering other women to do so. With Jill Scott recently making headlines for a recent performance of her simulating fellatio on stage via her mic, it got us thinking about the many other women who have been heating up the stage in a similar way for years, and in some cases, decades.
Jilly from Philly is certainly not alone in letting her freak flag fly while performing. Take a look at our list of other ladies who’ve pushed their sexuality to the brink in front of thousands of fans.
So everybody kvetching over Jill never saw this clip of Tina, I’m guessing.

It’s obvious where Jill got her inspiration looking at this throwback clip of Tina Turner fondling a mic back in her heyday. Sis had no qualms about not-so-subtly letting the crowd know exactly what she meant when she sang about what she needed.
