Everything You Need To Know About Twerking

You’ve seen twerk teams, you’ve watched twerking in music videos, and you’ve probably even tried to twerk a little yourself. Come on, admit it, you’ve tried to twerk at least once before realizing that you couldn’t. But despite how much twerking seems to be the butt (ha ha) of a bad joke these days, twerking is a lot more than meets the eye.
If you’re thinking that twerking is so last year, I have two things to say to that: a) Twerking didn’t just become a thing when Miley tried it last year, b) We still get questions about it, and c) Twerking is still super controversial.
So listen up: You’re going to learn about twerking today. Check out everything you need to know about twerking, from its roots to how to twerk in the first place.

The 20 Best, Funniest Moments From The 2014 VMAs In GIFs

Miley won the award for Video of the Year for “Wrecking Ball,” and used the opportunity to have her homeless friend give a speech to raise awareness for a cause Miley is involved with. She got really emotional about it, and it was very sweet. BYE MILEY HATERS, GO HOME.  

Last night, during John Legend and Sharon Jones’s Hollywood Bowl Tribute to Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On?”, three young women - Belissa Escobedo, Rhiannon McGavin, and Zariya Allen — delivered a powerful, poetic message to a sold out crowd of over 17,000. Their task:  To respond to Marvin Gaye’s music in a contemporary context.

Sorry, Not Sorry: I Don’t Like The New Taylor Swift Song or Video, Shake It Off

Two of Taylor’s “characters” throughout the video also involve some race issues. I can’t comment on these on a personal level, but I have seen a lot of chatter on social media about how her use of black dancers seems ignorant and maybe even racist. At one point, Taylor hops around in a hoodie and fitted hat while backup dancers break dance around her. In another scene, she’s obviously mocking Miley Cyrus as she navigates her way through black female dancers twerking, at one point even starring at the girl’s butt with her trademark “OMG meeeeee, really meee??!” surprised face.

I think Hillary Crosley’s commentary on Jezebel pretty much sums it up: “What is clear is that the girl dead set on being America’s Sweetheart picked the wrong week for this sappy, ready-made Target commercial cut where she celebrates her true self by crawling through a bridge of brown and black women’s butts. *surprised Taylor Swift face*”
