Tove Lo’s Year Of Pussy Power

When it came to toying with sex’s role in pop music, Tove Lo had 2016 covered from top(less) to bottom. No mainstream artist was more forward and confrontational with their own sexuality than the Swedish singer this year. But what made her stand out wasn’t necessarily the amount of skin she was showing. It was that, in a world saturated with butts and breasts, she focused on the vagina, from the title of her album to the racy video content. It’s reasonable to think that if Grimes hadn’t beaten her to it back in 2012, she would’ve sold pussy rings at the merch table, too.

So, to celebrate her proud embrace of the vagina at a time when having one is again seen as a threat, we present Tove Lo’s best pussy power moments from 2016.
