Millie Jackson

Not much can shock Millie Jackson. For 40 years, her songs have described sex, infidelity and, sometimes, politics in terms that made even the late comedian Richard Pryor seem restrained. She's nonchalant in discussing it all, except when asked about the online video clip of her raunchy stage moves during an ode called "Slow Tongue."

"I saw that and I'm going, 'Oh, my God, they got this over here?'" Jackson said from her home in Atlanta. "When I was doing that thing with my legs flapping onstage, I pictured myself being like a dying bird. I did it as a joke, because nobody would ever see it again and, damn, there it is on YouTube."<br><br><b>
