dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance:
just wait till they catch their daughters twerking to this song
twerk it girl, work it girl
In the week that 'twerk' officially appeared in the Oxford English Dictionary, it marched its way triumphantly into popular culture as a result of the actions of a one Ms. Miley Cyrus.
Hannah Montana, you say? The daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus you say? Yes. That one. It was her. She did it.
At Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards, Ms. Cyrus performed Robin Thicke's sexually suggestive song 'Blurred Lines' with the man himself and brought twerking into the limelight. In front of an audience of very rich people and other people wanting to see the very rich people, she twerked. And my did she twerk. She also thrust a foam hand between her legs like an overtly large squidgy phallus. But that's all relative I suppose.
Since then, the internet's pretty much broken down over this. Tweet records have been smashed. Parenting groups have been outraged. HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN TO THE CHILDREN??
Some people have even suggested that we shouldn't be as obsessed by this outrageous example of celebrity culture. But what do they know? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. I mean come on, look at it. http://mileycyrustwerkingonreality.tumblr.com/
Keep on twerking while you’re working.
