If you’ve been hearing the word “twerking” a lot lately — you have Miley Cyrus to blame.
The pop star is not only a trend setter with her amazing vocals and daring fashions, but she popularized the new dance craze.
Miley describes twerking as a dance with “a lot of booty.”
The former Disney star put on a unicorn onesie and first showed off her new dance in April.
Then in June, the twerking queen took over a Juicy J concert when she came out on stage and started twerking.
And, it all culminated with the wacky 20-year-old featuring her dance in her new music video “We Can’t Stop.”
UPDATE: Kudos to our avid RumorFix readers who shared the history on twerking with us. The dance is obviously a various of several African American dances that have been around for decades. It also is very popular in strip clubs, but we stand corrected Miley did not invent it.
