Well just when I thought I saw it all, I wake to news from ABC sharing a video of a pregnant woman “twerking” in a YouTube video. And it was part of a report describing the dance, which has been around for several years, up to a decade as “new.”
We only have the lovely pop culture figure Miley Cyrus to thank for this all. The former Hannah Montana star of the Disney channel has evolved her style and tastes. She dresses more provocatively, and freely expresses herself on Twitter and other social media format engaging in all of her favorite activities and vices which many who are familiar with her younger persona are not that cool with.
Among her newest loves and finds was Twerking. She posted a video of herself this past March Twerking in a frog suit earlier this year and has been seen on several vids doing the dance. Well that was enough to introduce the dance which black girls had been doing forever – albeit not to the same approval as Miley- to popular and wider audiences.
The ABC New piece described the dance:
For the uninitiated, Twerking involves a person shaking her upper and lower hips in an up and down bouncy motion that makes everything jiggle, wiggle and “quake.” The trending dance moves have inspired everyone from Nicki Minaj to high school seniors to post photos and videos on social media of themselves Twerking it. And according to BabyCenter.com, moms are documenting their bouncing hip action too.
“Celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence, Miley Cyrus and Beyonce have all been seen twerking, and now people everywhere — of all ages — are doing it,” says Linda Murray, global editor in chief of BabyCenter, which first spotted the dancing moms in the BabyCenter Community. “Moms are very plugged into pop culture, and also have a great sense of humor, so it’s no surprise they’re enjoying this craze like everyone else.”
Twerking is just another way for a pregnant woman to feel feminine and fun, Murray adds.
Oh okay and Murray recommends one seek permission for a doctor to see if “Twerking” is okay. Wow! Oh Wow! No judgment here. Do you, mamas.
