The Art of Twerking

Hey guys! Happy Thursday!

So no, this is not a post for the 30 day blog challenge I’m doing, but it’s just been a while since I’ve written an actual post about shit I care about or that’s on my mind.

If you remember one of my older posts, The Art of Fangirling, you’ll know that I’m going to introduce and discuss a magical subject. Today, I’m going to rant about twerking.

Twerk (verb)

the act of moving/ shaking ones ass/buns/bottom/buttocks/bum-bum in a circular, up-and-down, and side-to-side motion.

Urban Dictionary

So if you didn’t know what twerking was before I gave you the definition… then you obviously have been living under a rock. (A rock with internet connection…?) Twerking has become a very popular dance craze in the past year. Nowadays, it’s become even MORE popular thanks to celebrities like Miley Cyrus who like to twerk all day everyday.

People will record themselves twerking and upload it to Youtube, Vine, Instagram, etc. What’s the point of it all? Well, if you’re good at it, then hell yeah put that shit on the internet! This dance was made to be seen. Why would you just twerk to yourself in the mirror ALL by yourself? That’s no fun. The point is that it’s a ridiculous, fun, outrageous dance move that was made to turn heads. In more ways than one… heyyyyy.

Now you’re probably thinking why the hell I’m writing about this. Well, I’m writing about this because I’m pretty much obsessed with this movement. And by movement, I’m not just talking about the dance move, I’m talking about the phenomenon itself. Who doesn’t love watching booties bounce?! I’m a heterosexual female and I appreciate when a girl (or a guy) can booty shake really well. You might be thinking, “where is this going to get you in life?” Um, it’s going to make you feel AWESOME that you can shake your ass like that. Sometimes the answer is just because it makes us HAPPY. Why does anyone do anything? Uh, what’s the point of life if you’re gonna stay at home all day trolling the internet and asking why does anyone do anything? Because it makes you happy, right? … You sick, twisted bastard.

The video I linked in this post is one of my favorite Kpop stars, Min, twerking at a dance studio. She’s part of the famous girl group Miss A, managed by JYP. My friend recently sent this to me and I almost died. I’ve seen my fair share of twerk videos but this one took the cake. I mean think about it. Twerking has become SO popular that a KOREAN POP STAR has uploaded a video of herself twerking on the internet. Welcome to the year 2013.

Oh and if you’re wondering if I have any twerk videos… maybe. Maybe you’ll get lucky and catch me twerking in one of my vlogs.

I guess you’ll never know if you don’t subscribe, follow me on Twitter, or Like me on Facebook.

See what I did there?! 😉 Ok in all seriousness, I don’t ever plan on making a video like that. Unless I’m drunk. And I happen to drunkenly upload it while I’m in a drunken state of mind.

Question of the Day: Let’s start a twerk team? #AliceVegaTwerkTeam

Nevermind.. that’s a really long hashtag.
