Lana Del Rey must've known that covering Nirvana's "Heart Shaped Box" would elicit some sort of a response from Courtney Love, but none of us could've predicted that Love would actually be funny when she Tweeted LDR about it. "You do know the song is about my vagina right?" Love queried. "Next time you sing it, think about my vagina will you?" Wonder if LDR will be covering Nirvana's other ode to Courtney's genitals, "Moist Vagina," any time soon? This of course got us thinking about our favorite vagina-centric songs. There's tons of them out there, but the following five are the best of the best, as far as we're concerned, because they're so darn lady-positive.
5. "Work It," Missy Elliott
And here's Missy Elliott proving that you don't have to resort to dressing like a raging whore and singing in cliches (we're looking at you, Rihanna) to talk about your own vagina. In "Work It," Missy is a dominant and demanding sex goddess, unafraid to talk about shaving her "chocha" in time for some good, sofa-based, sweet lovin'. Bow down ("town and eat it like a vulture").
4. "Soft As Snow," My Bloody Valentine
When you're a slightly awkward dude trying to pay homage to female nether regions, you don't wanna be all gung ho about it. You want to be quiet and complimentary and laid back and sexier than you look. Mission accomplished, Kevin Shields. Mission accomplished. It's always the quiet ones...
3. "My Neck, My Back," Khia
Holy raging vagina core, world! Khia was not fucking around when she wrote this. Not only is this all about her "pussy" (and "crack"... which is nice...), it's basically three and a half minutes of Khia demanding cunnilingus and offering absolutely nothing in return whatsoever. Which feels a little bit revolutionary, given that musical history usually implies that men do all the demanding and women do all the providing of sexual favors. Khia's having none of that here. She just wants her lady region serviced immediately and thoroughly. And then you can leave, thanks.
