NEW YORK, Sept. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- What is sexy? How do you define it?
What exact combination of sex appeal, confidence, beauty, class and attitude
are needed to make it? VH1 has voted Madonna as the sexiest artist of Rock
and Roll. Whether she's provocatively posing for her SEX book or successfully
combining motherhood and her career, Madonna still has that "Je ne sais quoi"
that leaves us mesmerized.
Now, VH1 adds it all up and counts down music's "100 Sexiest Artists" in a
new five-hour, five consecutive night special. Premiering Monday, September
23, each special airs at 10:00-11:00 p.m. (ET/PT).
VH1's "100 Sexiest Artists" is hosted by Marg Helgenberger (CSI), (Hour
1); Lauren Graham (Gilmore Girls), (Hour 2); Kyra Sedgwick (Hour 3), Kim
Delaney (CSI Miami, NYPD Blue), (Hour 4) and Denise Richards (Hour 5).
From Elvis' pelvis to J.Lo's backside, pop stars have always been known
for more than just their ability to carry a tune. In the tradition of VH1's
hit "100 Greatest" specials, the "100 Sexiest Artists" celebrates the
musicians who get us hot under the collar, featuring unforgettable video
clips, film footage, photos and performances, plus exclusive new interviews
with Bill Bellamy, Pat Benatar, Sandra Bernhard, Jolene Blalock, Mary J.
Blige, Bebe Buell, Frank DeCaro, David Evangelista, Corey Feldman, Bonnie
Fuller, Deborah Harry, Susanna Hoffs, Jimmy Kimmel, Tommy Lee, LL Cool J,
Kylie Minogue, Todd Oldham, Camille Paglia, Bijou Phillips, Darius Rucker,
Johnny Rzeznik, Sarah Silverman and Usher, among many others.

* Us Weekly editor Bonnie Fuller on Usher: "Usher emanates sex . . .
