PLAYDAR: There’s A Whole Lotta Twerkin’ Goin’ On
Is Twerking the new Vogue? Like the former dance sensation that Madonna catapulted to mainstream dancefloors in the ’90s, the years-old art of twerking has been getting lots of play this summer thanks to Miley Cyrus’s new video for “We Can’t Stop,” which features the pixie-cut pop tart twerking her heart out with a gaggle of
lesbian lovers gal pals. Now everyone is talking about twerking. In his new song, “somewhereinamerica,” Jay-Z raps:
Feds still lurking, they see I’m still putting work in, ’cause somewhereinamerica, Miley Cyrus is still twerkin’, ha! Twerk, twerk, twerk, twerk, twerk, Miley, Miley, twerk, twerk, twerk, Miley, Miley, Miley, twerk. Twerk, yeah, ugh-huh. Twerk, Miley, Miley, Miley — Only in America.
Even Rihanna took to Twitter to post a video of her twerking to a new Drake song. (Guess payback’s a twerk, Chris Brown.) So today, in honor of the resurgence of twerking, I’ve culled a playlist of videos that’ll make you want to find a mirror or grab a wall and pop and drop that booty to the floor. You better twerk!
