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]

Poor Santa! Miley Cyrus Twerks On Father Christmas

Poor Santa! Miley Cyrus Twerks On Father Christmas
Ho Ho Ho!

I believe Miley has tried to make a name for herself lately by being that girl you never know what to expect from. Except, we’ve come to know exactly what to expect from Miley and that is twerking. Twerking on everything. So no one should be the slightest bit surprised that Miley twerked on Santa at KIIS FM’s annual Jingle Ball over the weekend. But forget feeling sorry for Santa — this one’s young, drunk, probably horny and doesn’t seem to mind Miley’s twerking one bit. No word on what Mrs. Claus thinks, however. [Jezebel]

Twerking On The Subway Tracks Is So Hot Right Now

Twerk It!

Watch Out For Rats

Eat your heart out, Miley Cyrus. Anyone can hump Robin Thicke’s Beetlejuice costume on a stage full of people. But it takes real cojones — and, um, possibly a death wish — to jump down on the tracks of the New York City subway system and twerk on the rails. DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME, KIDDIES. Don’t want to drop too low and hit that third rail. [Gothamist]

Lily Allen Responds To Allegations Of Racism Against Black Women In Her “Hard Out Here” Video

Lily Allen is back with a new music video
It's Hard Out Here For A Bitch!

This week, Lily Allen debuted the video for her new song “Hard Out Here,” to extremely mixed reactions. Some, like our own Rachel, saw her song about pop music’s policing of women’s bodies and double standards about sexuality as a “feminist anthem.”  Others are deeply offended by her use of mostly women of color backup dancers, arguing that satire is not an excuse for using their bodies in disrespectful ways.  Keep reading »

Vermont High School Cancels The Rest Of This Year’s School Dances Because Kids Were Grinding

Stowe High School in Stowe, Vermont, canceled its remaining three school dances this year to punish students for grinding at past dances. The three dances that got the kibosh included a Halloween dance, which was cancelled just days before it was supposed to happen. Prom, fortunately, has not been cancelled. However, Principal Jeff Maher told WCAX news said the school intends to hold conversations with students throughout the year about appropriate behavior at all school dances. “I don’t blame our kids, I really don’t,” Principal Maher said. “I think that they reflect the coarse, vulgar, popular culture that they inhabit.” I’m going to say something farty and old here, but I actually don’t think these actions are terrible. Extreme, maybe, but it will get the students’ attention for those (surely awkward) conversations about social boundaries. This is just a different way of approaching the problem than confronting every single kid who twerks or grinds at the dance itself. It’s anyone’s guess whether it will be successful, though.  They always could have made the students’ sign “no twerking” dance contracts instead. [WCAX via HyperVocal]

Annapolis High School Bans Twerking, Grinding, & Everything Else Fun That Happens At School Dances

miley twerking

Gone are the days when a nun rushes between you and your date at a school dance, reminding you to leave six inches for the baby Jesus. Now schools are just straight-up banning “provocative dance movements” like grinding and twerking … meaning a lot of teens don’t have any sweet moves anymore.  Keep reading »

The Original Twerk Team Gives Miley Cyrus Props

“Our whole movement is about girl power, so if you’re Black, White or Asian, you can twerk. But Miley Cyrus twerking is not our twerking. She’s just a fan who is showing it to a whole different ethnic group, you have to give her her props for that.”

Lady Luscious and Mizz TwerkSum of the original Twerk Team issue what is hopefully the final nail in the coffin of the “Can Miley twerk?” debate, pointing out that twerking is an act of empowerment. If you’re not familiar with the Twerk Team, head over to their YouTube page to check ‘em out. These ladies can move. [Life And Times]
