R&B crooner Ray J is a self-proclaimed expert at wooing women. Now on the second season of his VH1 reality show, For the Love of Ray J, the singer tells Usmagazine.com his tips to have a very "sexy" Christmas.
"I'm from L.A., so you don't get a lot of snow out there," the star, 28, laments to Us' music editor Ian Drew (watch the clip above). "I think hanging out in a cabin by the fire with some marshmallows, listening to christmas music, sipping some champagne with snow all outside -- that's sexy to me."
He adds: "If it's just you and your girl ... get into your zone!"
How does he get in the zone?
"It's always good to set the Christmas holidays with some nice music," he tells Us. "I recommend that Whitney Houston Christmas CD [One Wish: The Holiday Album]. It's a good CD to just vibe to. For the holidays, listening to somebody like her or some R&B."
"Some of that old Michael Jackson or Donny Hathaway," he says before singing a few impromptu lyrics of "This Christmas."
And if music doesn't work, Ray J doesn't think men should spare any expense on their loved ones.
"Diamonds are always a good thing to get a girl for Christmas," he says.
Another recession-unfriendly idea? A car!
"Something really nice like a Mercedes," he suggests, "with a big bow on top!"
