twerking-hall-of-fame-teksty-po-angielsku-b2

The word twerk has recently been added to Oxford Dictionaries Online. We find out that it stands for „dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance.”

But was it Miley Cyrus’ twerk at the VMAs that was ground zero for this seemingly unexpected hype? While twerking may be new to some of you, it’s been around since 1990s! This booty-bounce-heavy dance was born out of New Orleans’ music scene due to amazing fusion of a hip-hop genre centered around call-and-response vocals.In 2005 Beyonce’s song „Check On It” featured the line „Dip it, pop it, twerk it, stop it, check on me tonight.” A year later Justin Timberlake sang „Let me see what ya twerkin’ with.”

This twerking phenomenon has been sweeping almost all nations around the world for a while. Rihanna & Shakira, whose awkwardly sexy dance appeared some time ago on YouTube, made their butts the biggest gimmick. But would it be too bold to say that celebrities are taking the whole thing too far? Well, not really. Most recently Nicky Minaj and Taylor Swift have also joined this twerking hall of fame to reject the idea of skinny beauty. This attention-grabbing celebration of ass is supposed to make you love your curves and rear end no matter what others think.

Interestingly, twerking is a good cardio workout and if done right, it engages hamstrings, glutes and lower back. Pumping your pelvis briskly for a few minutes can also help you burn extra calories (around 400!). So get down to work right now.
