Miley Cyrus and twerking
Last year was massive for numerous reasons. It saw Justin Bieber leave his monkey in Germany, spit on fans and indulge in other countless misdemeanours. We saw the birth of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s daughter North. The world was introduced to Baauer’s Harlem Shake, a fad that has thankfully now stopped, whilst Disney singing sensations the Jonas Brothers split up. But there is one moment of 2013 that will forever be etched in everyone’s mind: Miley Cyrus and her non-stop twerking.
Now for those who do not know what twerking is, here is the Wikipedia description: “Twerking is a type of dancing in which an individual dances to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low squatting stance.” Miley brought the dance to worldwide attention when she twerked with married 36-year-old Robin Thicke at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs).
Since then the craze has spread like a virus and the word twerking has been added to the Oxford English dictionary. Perhaps more disturbing is the fact that "We Can't Stop" Miley from doing it. Besides Robin Thicke, here are some other things that have enjoyed or endured the experience of the Cyrus twerk.
Now "Madge" is the undisputed queen of pop. With over 300 million records sold she is the bestselling female artist of all time, but that didn't stop Miley. Madonna is no shrinking violet; she famously necked Britney Spears at the 2003 VMA's (MTV must put something in the "water"). However, nothing could have prepared her for her MTV Unplugged performance with Cyrus in January this year. Cyrus took great pleasure in grinding on the 55-year-old, as well as getting involved in some spanking. It was all very odd; who wants to see the princess of pop grind with the grandmother of pop?
Earlier on in Miley's aforementioned Unplugged appearance, she managed to twerk on a horse. Luckily for the horse it wasn't real; it was just two men inside a big horse costume. Nonetheless, that does little to take any of the weirdness away from it. She is dancing with a horse... who in their right mind thought "Hey, twerk on a horse, people will love it"?
Rumours are circulating that Miley will be at the Cheltenham horse racing Festival looking for a thoroughbred. A potentially traumatised horse could cost punters a huge amount of money, so security is expected to be heightened!
Miley's extensive list also involves teddy bears, dwarves as well as numerous solo twerks involving her dressed up as a unicorn.
However, it looks like Cyrus's twerking days are temporarily over; she has banned herself from twerking for the entire 59 days of her Bangerz tour. So, it's like when you give up chocolate for lent. Once it's over you get back on it with a vengeance. We have all come to realise there can be no predicting what Miley will do next. In truth, while we all criticise Miley and her "Wrecking Ball" antics, deep down we all like her, don’t we?!
