DELUSIONAL TALES: Iggy Azalea Accuses Miley Cyrus Of Stealing Twerking....FROM HER!
We've stayed quiet as much as we could about Miley Cyrus' non twerking ass. Simply because we didn't think America was dumb enough to actually think this little girl created something new.
But now that her fellow blonde culture vulture Iggy Azalea has chimed in laying claim to "twerking", some ish must be said...
Industry chicks never cease to amaze us. Iggy Azeala, the chick who started out with T.I.'s Grand Hustle label and truly thinks she's killin' it now that she's been appointed to open for Beyonce in Australia, has laid claim to twerking.
Not only did neither of these chicks invent a damn thing, but what they're doing is far from twerking. They're simply jolting their back...literally their BACK...and trying their damndest to catch a beat but cannot do so within 10 feet of their lives. They're trying mad hard, but don't....quite....get there. You know, the typical story of culture vultures.
This brings us to the latest delusion from the latest culture vulture blonde chick who's been so gassed up she actually thinks she has a talent. Australian model turned rapper turned model again, Iggy Azalea, believes Miley Cyrus stole twerking from her. Yep, she actually said this in her new interview with PAPER magazine.
“I’ve been doing that onstage for two-and-a-half years,” Azalea says of Cyrus’ recent forays into the ass-grinding dance craze.
“She probably fucking watched my videos online and decided to try it.”
And we're splitting hairs with the whole "But, I'm the first white girl who did it on a stage" theory that she very likely had while saying that statement. A distinction with no difference. No one can steal what was never yours.
The article continues:
During Azalea's ass-happy song "Cheeks," she challenged her backup dancers to a twerk-off. Of course, every cellphone camera in the room captured the insanity, and the twerk heard 'round the world went viral. "People just wanna see my butt," Azalea says with a shrug. "We'd been doing that dance-off at the shows, but no one put it online. At the Bowery, they did."
Iggy, or whatever, I beg you to stick to your attempts at mimicking Tupac Shakur--since you said that's how you "learned to rap" back in Aussie land--and stop believing everything your hype people (and internet worshipers) are telling you. They're making you look more clueless than we already think you are.
Now, let's all carry on with the originator of twerking...at least in America...New Orleans' own DJ Jubilee. Yes, N.O. peeps created twerking as a variation of dances originating from African & Caribbean cultures. But twerking as we know it here in America....for all you late to the party folks like Iggy & Miley....is something we've been doing since the early 90's.
For those who aren't up to date on their music & dance history (like Miley & Iggy), school yourselves below:
