one of my f-bi sent me this just now.
it was in the ny post.
it seems that miley cyrus has created a new dance craze!
it’s called “twerking”.
how did we miss this?
well lets give her props….
Twerking, the rump-busting up-and-down dance move long beloved by America’s hip-hop scene, has officially gone mainstream. It’s got the English dictionary entry to prove it.
Britain’s Oxford Dictionaries said the rapid-fire gyrations employed by U.S. pop starlet Miley Cyrus to bounce her way to the top of the charts had become increasingly visible in the past 12 months and would be added to its publications under the entry: “Twerk, verb.”
Although Cyrus’s eye-popping moves at Monday’s MTV Video Music Awards may have been many viewers’ first introduction to the practice, Oxford Dictionaries’ Katherine Connor Martin said “twerking” was some two decades old.“There are many theories about the origin of this word, and since it arose in oral use, we may never know the answer for sure,” Martin said. “We think the most likely theory is that it is an alteration of work, because that word has a history of being used in similar ways, with dancers being encouraged to ‘work it.’ The ‘t’ could be a result of blending with another word such as twist or twitch.”
“Twerk” will be added to the dictionary as part of its quarterly update, which includes words such as “selfie,” the word typically used to describe pouty smartphone self-portraits, “digital detox” for time spent way from Facebook and Twitter, and “Bitcoin,” for the nationless electronic currency whose gyrations have also caught the world’s eye.
because this video never existed.
she was the first to ever do it.
first that ever did it.

Cultural appropriation is as old as ever. Biggest bitter in the world was Elvis and those other white men that basically stole rock and roll out from under black folks. Now they’re after hip hop. I will say this, black people speak up. I take every opportunity to let people know that what folks think of as American Culture is AFRICAN American culture. As for the twerk specifically, um, that came from Africa too. We’ve been doing this isht for centuries.
I’m so over the twerking shit. The twerking been out for years even before the twerk team and all the while everyone called it “ghetto”, “trashy”, “ratchet” and anything else to deem it something bad mainly because it was something that mostly blacks did, but now it has become widely accepted and everyone wants to be the next “twerk star” smh.
I’m tired of everyone shitting on black folks when we do something whether it is negative or positive but let someone of another race do it (preferably white) and it becomes the greatest thing ever.
And you know what its not even the white people that make me sick its the Uncle Tom Ass Black folk that do anything that whites say is acceptable. In their eyes if white people say that twerking is trashy and ghetto then they believe it. If white people say that twerking is God’s gift to earth then they believe it.
Feel the same damn way. The twerk team was ghetto and wana be strippers but ever since Hanna Montanna did it (OMG I wanna learn it)
We p-poppin, rump shaking, booty bouncing non whites been doing this for years. As a matter fact white people thought it was disgusting now they wanna learn it???? I agree with y’all it only looks good when you have a ass to twerk
i’m more insulted that beyonce been twerking and poppin’ her pussy for a decade now.
this chick does it and she is the messiah of ass shakin.
I so agree with your comment. Janet, Beyonce and many others have been doing this ass poppin move for years! And this flat ,no ass, white chick gets all the credit….ain’t that bout a bitch!!
Twerking looks stupid when people with no ass do it.I don’t really count that as twerking.They just wiggle they’re lower back because that’s what a no-ass looks like, just one long back with a crack/hole in the lower half.
