Celebrities are photographed almost at any moment which inspires them to work out pretty much every day. Much like us, celebrities wear workout clothes like yoga pants while they’re getting their sweat on. Also like us, musicians and celebs wear yoga pants while they’re just grocery shopping or pumping gas because they are such a comfortable fashion choice. Aside from regular workouts, most musicians on this list spend a lot of time in the dance studio which really gets their glutes ready to squeeze into yoga pants.
Companies like Alo Yoga and Alexander Wang have made yoga pants worthy of a high fashion-centric musician like Rihanna and Nicki Minaj. Stars like Taylor Swift and Kylie Jenner have been photographed in Alo Yoga leggings in the past year bringing their company to new heights. Aside from wearing yoga pants tons of stars have started their own fitness wear companies like Fabletics by Kate Hudson and CALIA by Carrie Underwood. With all of these new brands emerging we’re sure that the yoga pants and tights trend isn’t about to end anytime soon. That means many more years of celeb photographs of yoga pants fails and great successes like this one that we’ve compiled of musicians who look dang good in their yoga pants.
15. Katy Perry
Pictured here on her way to the gym, Katy Perry adds a little sports enthusiasm to her form-fitting spandex workout outfit. Although she grew up singing in church the pop star tends to pick more risque wardrobe at this point in her career. After her fourth studio album Katy Perry can officially be considered a member of the A-list which gives her more freedom to explore with her music. She told Ryan Seacrest in an interview that her next album would arrive, but she was taking her time getting to know new styles and producers. Most recently Katy Perry has been seen performing at multiple Democratic rallies for Hillary Clinton as she ran for President in November 2016. Although Clinton lost the election to Donald Trump, Perry continues to show her support for the Democratic nominee. Other stars that joined Perry on the campaign trail are Beyonce, Jay-Z, and LeBron James.
14. Vanessa Hudgens
Even leaving the gym Vanessa Hudgens is looking gorgeous in her grey yoga pants paired with a bright orange tank top and her matching Nike trainers. Back in 2005 when Hudgens first rose to fame amidst her relationship with heartthrob Zac Efron she was beautiful but in the last decade, she has really come into her own. Since 2011 the pop star and actress has been in a relationship with Austin Hudgens and the pair visited the Coconino National Forest in 2016 where they carved their names into a rock. Unfortunately for them, that was illegal and they were fined $1000 by the U.S. National Forest Service after she posted a photo of the carving onto her Instagram feed.
Hudgens is also no stranger to having her body be the subject of public discussion. Hudgens has had sensitive photos leaked from her phone on two separate occasions. Once in 2007, a photo was released that pictured Hudgens posing in sexy lingerie. Three years later a topless photo made the rounds to which led Hudgens to take legal action. Despite these leaks Hudgens refuses to do nudity in her movies.
13. Miley Cyrus
Here in her almost see through white spandex fit featuring matching yoga pants, Miley Cyrus chose red lipstick to round out the look. Her style choices in recent years have gotten more and more edgy which has sparked enough controversy to make her an A-List celeb and somewhat of a sex symbol. Her first controversial photo shoot was the cover of Vanity Fair when she was only 16 where she was featured topless with a sheet covering her chest. This was her first transition from Disney star to universal sex symbol. Since her initial coming-out party Miley has accepted her open sexual nature and come out both as a pansexual and a non-gendered person. She has been open about her beliefs on LGBTQ rights. Which means you may be able to understand why she was most recently seen breaking down into tears over Hillary Clinton’s loss to Donald Trump.
12. Ariana Grande
Stretching out before doing some work on her former Disney show Ariana Grande is seen here in black spandex yoga pants and a blue workout jacket, as well as rocking out in an all black look. The American singer and actress has been in the spotlight since she was a little girl cast in a Broadway musical. Early in her career the public figure also had a more modest image than most that were pushed into the spotlight at an early age. Instead of being known for her sexy outfits or sexual lyrics Grande was known for her famous half ponytail and huge voice. As she grew older the miniature sized singer opted for short shorts and knee high boots, shedding her former image of a clean cut little girl. Aside from some negative headlines, Grande is well known for her feminist and pro-LGBTQ statements in the celebrity community. You can imagine LGBTQ rights is something that definitely matters to Grande, as her half-brother is openly gay.
11. J Lo
Also known as J-Lo, Jennifer Lopez has always been known for having the most amazing rear end in the entertainment industry. This black on black yoga outfit features just the right spandex to accentuate that booty. Her first big job was as a dancer on hit 1991 television show In Living Color before finding success in a solo singing and film careers. The first role for which Jennifer Lopez received critical acclaim was in the Selena biopic aptly named Selena. Her first hit single was entitled “If You Have My Love” which fell right in with the pop singing queen genre of 1999 and the early 2000’s. Since getting her start and breaking into the industry Lopez has taken on many other business ventures outside of acting and performing. She creates fragrances, clothing, has a production company, and even television shows. Every venture she takes on she employs and empowers other Latina women and in the process helps inspire many more women to pursue their dreams.
10. Selena Gomez
Pictured on a casual stroll in light grey yoga pants paired with a duster jacket Selena Gomez still looks fine. The young star, like many others on this list, got her start on Disney Channel original series Wizards of Waverly Place which she evolved into a full-time film career with roles in movies like Ramona and Beezus and Monte Carlo. Her next film would propel her to sex symbol status in Spring Breakers about a group of girls that ends up turning into robbers. Outside of her acting career, Gomez has acquired success in the music industry with her pop career. The singer has released two solo albums entitled Stars Dance and Revival which both garnered modest success for the young woman. She has been nominated for tons of awards both for singing and acting but her main claim to fame was her very public relationship with pop singer Justin Bieber.
Rihanna launched into the role of sex symbol after releasing her controversial and popular album Good Girl Gone Bad. Although openly embracing sexy outfits, lyrics, and dance moves on stage and in videos Rihanna has kept much of her private life secret after her very public and gossiped about relationship with R&B singer Chris Brown. Most recently Rihanna has been linked to Canadian rapper and actor Drake but they still haven’t gone public despite much coy play on stage and tabloid rumors. In her time in the public eye Rihanna has become a hot name in fashion, most recently collaborating with fashion giants like Dior and Manolo Blahnik. She’s designed shoes for Manolo and Puma but continues to rule in the world of music, inspiring artists like Selena Gomez and Grimes. We can only hope the next thing she starts designing is yoga pants!
8. Britney Spears
In the late ‘90s Britney Spears shot to fame with her hit single “Hit Me Baby One More Time” and became a pop sensation. Although BritBrit is still a household name she has had to withstand tons of gossip and talk after her very public meltdown following her divorce from Kevin Federline. It was 2007 when Spears continued to grace the covers of all of the popular tabloids by doing things like shaving her head and attacking paparazzi with an umbrella. Since then Spears has been very publicly medicated with her father serving as her caretaker. Britney Spears currently has a show running at Planet Hollywood where she performs all of our Britney favorite hits. The show, called Piece of Me, reports Brit has high energy, which is fantastic to see. This photo of the star in her skin tight yoga pants shows us that she’s still working hard in they gym and on the dance floor.
7. Nicole Scherzinger
American singer, songwriter, television personality, and actress Nicole Scherzinger is most well known for her role in the hit singing group The Pussycat Dolls. The gaggle of hot chicks started as a burlesque troupe and turned into a recording group that was later franchised out to Vegas casinos. Scherzinger has been chasing fame for a long time and has revived her B to C-list career multiple times using reality shows and television. The dancer and singer won the tenth season of popular ABC show Dancing With the Stars which has brought her more fame amongst viewers in American homes. But has also had success with ventures like hosting The X Factor. This photo shows that Scherzinger is not afraid to do some yoga, even if it is on the beach!
While Scherzinger is beautiful, she definitely did not always feel that way about herself. Scherzinger has been very open about her struggle with bulimia which lasted eight years and included some years when she was in the spotlight.
6. Taylor Swift
Swift has quickly become one of the leading ladies in entertainment after forming her girl posse which posts frequently all over Instagram. Swift is not afraid to show off her figure in this picture of her in Alo Yoga pants, which is a Luxury active wear company based out of Los Angeles. As one of the few breakthrough country stars Swift is currently the hit of both the country and pop charts in America. She’s not only a singer but also a songwriter and has received acclaim for her songwriting skills from the Nashville Songwriters Association and Songwriters Hall of Fame. Her love life has been just as interesting to the magazines and gossip columns as her music fame to which Swift has remained somewhat quiet. With various public jaunts with stars like John Mayer to members of the prestigious Kennedy family turning into songs, Swift has become somewhat of a dating pariah in the entertainment industry.
5. Demi Lovato
Void of makeup, but not her Birkin bag, Lovato is pictured here in an all black, all spandex workout outfit featuring skin tight yoga pants. She signed her first recording contract with Hollywood Records and released her debut studio album that quickly shot up on the Billboard Top 200. Lovato has had a lot of struggles and has been very honest with the public about her battles with depression, self-harm, eating disorders, and being bullied. She opened up about these very real teen issues when she checked into rehab at the age of 18. This was in 2010 and aligned with her dropping out of the Jonas Brothers Tour after punching another female dancer right in the face. Since then the singer has put her focus on being healthy and happy instead of skinny and famous, though she has still stayed in the spotlight of fame despite her public struggles. Most recently Lovato has spoken at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
4. Hilary Duff
Just casually paying her parking meter Hilary Duff is looking fine in her capri yoga pants and muscle tee. After getting her start with Disney Hilary Duff moved into the music side of entertainment and recorded five albums on top of the 20+ movies that she’s worked on. Since her singing debut in 2002 Duff has sold an estimated 15 million records and stars like Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus cite her as an inspiration in their own careers. Aside from recording hit albums and filming television and on screen films, Duff has worked with some key charities. She has also become a mother after marrying hockey player Mike Comrie. The pair divorced after a six-year union, but Duff must be used to media attention after her very public relationships with pop singer Aaron Carter and Good Charlotte singer Joel Madden. This picture is one piece of proof that Hilary Duff has grown up since her Lizzie McGuire fame.
3. Nicki Minaj
Not only is Nicki Minaj a rapper, singer, and songwriter she is the first female artist included on MTV’s Annual Hottest MC List. At one point Minaj was called the “most influential female rapper of all time” by The New York Times. She has become an A-List celebrity with endorsements and ten Grammy nominations. She is very well known for her costumes, makeup, and wigs and her attempts to take the emphasis off of her sexuality unlike her rap predecessors Lil’ Kim and Trina. Despite taking a more high fashion approach to the red carpet Nicki Minaj is still an international sex symbol. Minaj is the world’s most followed rapper on Twitter and has over 68 million followers on Instagram. Pictured here Minaj is showing off her valuable rear end that has been the topic of much speculation. It’s the size that matters in the gossip world and this girl’s got more back than anyone’s ever seen, leading many to say that it has to be implants.
2. Kelly Rowland
In the late 90’s Kelly Rowland was one of the founding members of one of the biggest girl groups of all time, Destiny’s Child. During a Destiny’s Child hiatus Rowland released her debut solo album Simply Deep which sold over 2 million copies worldwide. Three years later Destiny’s Child disbanded for good and Rowland focused solely on her solo career. In 2007 Kelly Rowland released her second album Ms. Kelly which remains her highest selling album thus far in her career. Since her release of Ms. Kelly Rowland has been experimenting with her sound and has ventured into the dance pop genre after taking interest in David Guetta and hasn’t really settled into one Kelly Rowland sound just yet. She’s pictured here in yoga pants at a furniture store and paired them with a baseball cap and matching black muscle tee. Her career currently spans 18 years and she hasn’t shown signs of letting up yet. We are sure we are not alone in saying that we are excited to see what’s next from Kelly Rowland.

The Australian-born rapper and singer was first noticed after making YouTube music videos entitled “Pu$$y” and “Two Times”. She eventually signed with T.I.’s Grand Hustle Records in 2012 after her mixtape gained recognition in the community.

Iggy Azalea dropped out of high school to pursue her dreams of moving to America, at this time she started cleaning holiday homes and hotels with her mother to save up money. In 2006 she finally relocated, telling her parents she was going on holiday to the U.S. and then ending up staying.
