Twerking has become a virtual rite of passage for many musicians.
Twerking has become a virtual rite of passage for many musicians. For example, there are now 22 different artists who have twerked on stage at the Grammys and the VMAs in 2019 alone. This includes:
Some singers have incorporated it into their routines.
Some singers have incorporated it into their routines. Christina Aguilera performed a twerking song at the American Music Awards in November 2014. Beyoncé brought out dancers to execute an elaborate dance routine at the MTV Video Music Awards in August 2015.
Twerks are everywhere you look; they’re on pop stars’ Instagrams and Vine accounts and featured in music videos from artists like Rihanna and Nicki Minaj—even presidential candidates have taken part!
A pair of pop stars were filmed twerking together at a concert.
Twerking is a dance move that involves thrusting the hips and buttocks in an up-and-down motion. It’s been popular with young people since the 1980s, but it’s also become a trend among musicians. In 2015, two pop stars were filmed twerking together at a concert by their labelmates—a rare occurrence that raised eyebrows in the music industry.
Female pop stars have made twerking seemingly obligatory.
Twerking has become a trend in pop culture. It’s a dance that has been around since the early 2000s, but it wasn’t until recently that it became popular among female pop stars. Now, twerking seems obligatory for female singers and dancers—even though there are many other dances!
Twerking is not just about being sexy or expressing sexuality: it’s also about expressing yourself. When you’re twerking, your body becomes part of the performance itself, so when you execute this move correctly (which takes skill), it becomes much more than just another dance move; instead, it can become an expression of who you are as an artist or dancer—and maybe even yourself!
Some people think twerking is uncouth and tacky.
Some people think twerking is uncouth and tacky. They may even say it shows disrespect, immaturity, or low intelligence. One boy made headlines saying he would never twerk again because he thinks it’s “disrespectful.”
But plenty of people disagree with this sentiment: they think twerking is fun! And as we’ve seen before in our article about twerking culture on campus (and elsewhere), there are many ways for those who enjoy expressing themselves artistically through their dancing—whether at home or out in public spaces like parks or streets.
Twerking has made its way into popular culture, both good and bad.
Twerking has made its way into popular culture, both good and bad. It’s a form of dance popular in the United States and the United Kingdom, but it also has an international following. For example, twerkers have been seen at music festivals across Europe and Asia.
The good news about this trend is that it brings people together from different backgrounds through common interests and a shared love for music. The bad news: some people use twerking as an excuse to act rudely toward others—and they’re not afraid to put their bodies on display while doing so!
The article is a compilation of social media posts, the theme of which is the immense popularity of twerking. Many people believe that twerking can be considered harmless and even funny. Still, many others view twerking as a form of expression promoting an image some consider degrading, at least in its execution. The following are selected tweets and articles from Twitter and sources such as Huffington Post, “New York Magazine,” MTV News, VH1, “L.A. Times,” Slate, etc., that shed light on the topic.
Takeaway: Twerking is becoming quite popular among many artists today; however, it may cause controversy for being perceived as vulgar or inappropriate in future years.
Takeaway: Twerking has become a part of pop culture today in line with other forms of dance like booty shaking and baring one’s midriff. Some still view this behavior as distasteful; it may not last long before losing its effect on pop culture altogether.
A tweet about twerking was posted by a person who considers herself competent enough to know what she’s talking about after reading several articles on this subject matter.
Takeaway: Twerking can often be described as vulgar when performed by female artists without any clothing covering their buttocks or genitals; however, there have been instances where male artists have incorporated this type of dancing into their work or performances without causing controversy over its sexualization of women—for example, Beyoncé’s infamous video “Partition.”
Takeaway: Women seem to dominate the use of twerk moves; however, men may start incorporating twerk dance moves into their songs or performances in the future to please fans and create more excitement for them in concert venues across America like Bruno Mars just recently did with his song “Please Me.”
