Nicki Minaj Tried & Failed To Teach Models At Alexander Wang How To Twerk

Models are good at being gorgeous walking clothes hangers — and I’m sure they each have their own individual talents — but one thing they’re seemingly not so great at is twerking. Nicki Minaj dropped by the Alexander Wang show at New York Fashion Week and tried her best to teach the models some of her signature moves, but even having an expert in their midst didn’t improve their booty pops. I guess having rhythm on the runway doesn’t necessarily translate to rhythm on the dance floor. Check out another quick vid from Vogue‘s Vine account after the jump! (Click for sound!)

Real-Life “Footloose” Erupts At Vermont High School Over Twerking

Guys, serious crisis: Mount Anthony Union High School in Bennington, Vermont has canceled its homecoming dance due to a rampant fear of twerking. In a letter published in the local paper, The Bennington Banner, the school’s principal, Sue Maguire, explains:

Over the past couple of years, since Miley Cyrus took the stage ‘twerking’ at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, our students’ dancing behavior has crossed the line of what we can condone as appropriate behavior at a school. Twerking is dancing to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving a low squatting stance and thrusting movements. Students do not face one another or remain with the same person for the length of the song. If you haven’t seen twerking, I would encourage you to research this online.

20-Something Trio Celebrates Paying Off A Fine By Throwing A Drug-Fueled Twerk-And-Tinkle Party In City Hall Parking Lot

20-Something Trio Celebrates Paying Off A Fine By Throwing A Drug-Fueled Twerk-And-Tinkle Party In City Hall Parking Lot

Our own Winona is from a town in Oregon called Beaverton. You know who else is from Beaverton? These three ladies, Brittany Medak, 20, Christie Valazquez Coura, 20, and Leokham Yothsombath, 22, who celebrated paying off a fine at municipal court by throwing an impromptu twerking party in the City Hall parking lot. But this was no innocent affair; after doing some drugs — “molly cut with meth,” according to a post on Yothsombath’s Facebook page — the three twerked some more and then peed between and on a few cars in full public view while a friend filmed. The three were promptly arrested after police were called and a search of their vehicle unearthed cocaine, marijuana and methamphetamine (Yothsombath still insists this was molly, aka MDMA, cut with meth, but I don’t think it really matters). They were arrested and booked on multiple charges including drug possession, disorderly conduct and tampering with drug records. In other words, these three are in much bigger trouble now than they were for whatever brought them to court in the first place. The question is, in the event they beat the charges, how will they celebrate? By blowing eight balls and shitting on someone’s hood? [Crime Feed]

Pharrell: Sorry, Conservatives, But Your Daughters Are Twerking

pharrell GQ

“[The Tea Party are] all trying to learn how to do the Dougie. Please. While their daughters are all twerking. Trust me … Miley tells me all the time: All those little girls, all those girls with their Republican daddies, they’re twerkin’ somewhere listening to Jay Z and Beyoncé and doin’ the ‘Happy’ dance.”

Superstar producer Pharrell has an interesting interview in GQ in which he talks at length about racial issues in the United States, including facing accusations of colorism because of the women he put on the cover of his album, G I R L, and also his opinion on why Hillary Clinton will win the 2016 presidential election if she runs. It’s worth a full read, but I thought this part was especially funny: apparently Miley Cyrus and Pharrell have some giggles over the fact that the Tea Party might be a bunch of white racist d-bags, but somewhere up in their bedrooms, their daughters are twerking to beats made by Black folks. I never thought of it that way, but it’s true. [GQ] [Image via GQ]

Watch These 100-Year-Old BFFs Discuss Selfies, Twerking & Justin Bieber

Watch These 100-Year-Old BFFs Discuss Selfies, Twerking And Justin Bieber
They've Been Besties For 94 Years!

I can only hope that at the age of 100, I still have my best friend around to gossip about pop culture phenomena in the year 2079. Irene and Alice, who have been BFFs for 94 (!) years, appeared on “The Steve Harvey Show” this week to share their incisive observations on things like selfies (“where you take a picture of yourself and put it on Facebook”), twerking (nothing like the “1, 2, 3 shuffle”) and Justin Bieber (“he’s not doing something right”). Couldn’t have said it better myself. [Thought Catalogue]

You Know You Want To See Helen Mirren Twerk

You Know You Want To See Helen Mirren Twerk
Get It, Helen!

I am pretty bored of seeing famous white ladies twerking, but for Helen Mirren, I will make an exception. Helen Mirren can do whatever she wants. She is a Dame, after all. If Helen Mirren wants to twerk, who am I to tell her not to? I am a mere plebe. Miley Cyrus, on the other hand? She can stop. [Celebuzz]
