By now we’re all familiar with twerking: hip-shaking, booty-focused dance moves a la Nicki Minaj and (ugh) Miley Cyrus. It’s sexy, it’s silly — and apparently, it’s completely safe for expectant mothers. OB-GYN Dr. Jennifer Ashton confirmed to ABC News that twerking is safe for pregnant mommies who won’t let a little morning sickness get in the way of their booty-shakin’. “For the average pregnant woman, dancing and aerobic activity is safe during pregnancy, so therefore Twerking is, too,” she explained. “Pregnancy is not a disease, and women should feel comfortable being active. If something hurts, don’t do it.” So go for it, ladies. Shake that fetus around like a cocktail shaker! [10news.com]

I want to learn how to do this. Someone teach me! [Idolator]
More than 30 seniors at Scripps Ranch High School near San Diego have been disciplined for making a twerking video and posting it on YouTube. The students who appeared in the video may be banned from prom and prohibited from attending their own graduation for shaking their asses on school property.
Allegedly, this whole twerk-a-thon started as these things usually do. One student asked others during 6th period media class, “Who wants to be videotaped twerking?” And, naturally, 33 girls volunteered to be taped all over the school, twerking and doing handstands. Probably because they were ready to graduate already and/or bored and/or fans of that video of Miley Cyrus twerking in a unicorn onesie. I know I enjoyed it. Keep reading »
