And, as an ex-ginger, I feel it my duty to educate the world that ginger can in fact be very sexy. Admittedly, I looked like a freak when I had ginger hair (but that had more to with the train tracks, massive glasses and acne than the ginger hair). Thus, here is my list of ‘Top 10 Sexiest Ginger People in Music Today”:
Florence Welch, 'Florence and the Machine'
Florence Welch is a creature of strange beauty, I feel- there are those who’d sooner give her ‘A Kiss With a Fist’ than actually kiss her, but I’ve always thought there’s something about the slanted features and fiery locks. Plus, Welch makes her sound like she should be a farmer, which is slightly awesome.
Linnea Jonsson, ‘Those Dancing Days’
Patrick Wolf could be my ideal man- if I liked my men exuberantly dressed, covered in glitter, and very gay. I don’ t, consequently, but if I did, I would follow Patrick Wolf around in eccentric attire, hoping I might be masculine enough to catch his eye.
Jessica Sutta, ‘The Pussycat Dolls’
Really, if we’re being honest, El Stumpo is the most desirable member of Fall Out Boy. You may cry ‘Lulz wtf o__o ?!?! Pete Wentz is sooo daymn hawt LOLOLOL’, in which case you are a wemo, and your opinion on anything is irrelevant. But seriously- you can quite easily imagine curling up next to the big bear of lurve that is Patrick Stump on long, winter nights- curl up next to Wentz, and all you’ll get is an earful of ‘Who the Hell are you? And what have you done with Ashlee Simpson?’ I rest my case.
Sherri DuPree, ‘Eisley’
With her bountiful curls and brooding, sensual voice, Neko Case has it all. She looks sexy, she sounds sexy- and she's got a new album due out this year. What more could you want, really?
Stephanie O’Brien, ‘The Puppini Sisters’
Behold Bob, in his bearded splendour! I think Bob is that rare combination of being beardy, ginger but still attractive. I have a friend who’s obsessed with Bob- she has a mug with a picture of him dressed as a cowboy on it. Seriously. The fact that I got it made for her is completely irrelevant.
Hayley Williams, ‘Paramore’
