Today I came across this video from Anet Antošová, a Czech dance instructor specializing in twerking, and I cannot look away from her YouTube channel. I legit followed her on Instagram. SOMEONE RESCUE ME FROM ANET ANTOŠOVÁ’S BUTT.
Normally I’d be like “WOW, that’s a lot of White chicks appropriating Black culture,” but it’s the Czech Republic, where varying shades of what would in America be “White folks” constitutes ethnic diversity.

Richard Cohen is a columnist for the Washington Post. He’s also a Roman Polanski apologist, a Clarence Thomas apologist, and a man who’s been personally called out for lewd behavior in front of a 23-year-old aide.

Wait. What? Keep reading »
Twerking. It’s the “Dougie” of 2013, the Macarena of the zeitgeist. It also appears to be a very popular YouTube extracurricular activity — and not just amongst the Miley Cyruses of the world. This Huffington Post Comedy video sets a bunch of twerkin’ dudes to the sweet sounds of classical music. It really elevates it, don’t you think? [Huffington Post]
Miley Cyrus is doing more than fine as evidenced by this video of her twerking it in a unicorn onezie. “It’s a onezie PARTY of one,” she tweeted. I strongly approve of this. BUT if you look closely at her paw, hoof, hand in the photo after the jump, you’ll notice that her engagement ring appears to be back on. [Jezebel] Keep reading »
