Miley Cyrus on Being
the Unofficial Twerk
Queen: ‘I’m Just
It’s been a big year for twerking; the word landed in not only everyone’s everyday vocabulary, but also the Oxford Dictionary.
Fans have made it clear that twerking is more than just a dance motion—it’s a movement. And luckily this movement has a leader... Miley Cyrus, of course!
And what does the unofficial queen of twerking think of her newly crowned title?
“I don’t know how it happened,” the 20-year-old star told Z100’s Elvis Duran. “For me, anything I do [becomes] a such a big deal. I’m just having fun. Whatever people label it as it doesn’t really matter. I always want to switch it up.”
Of course, the former Disney star has switched up a lot in the recent years—most notably her hair do, which she said was inspired by her desire to stand out.
“I don’t ever want to be too much like anyone else,” She told Z100. “I definitely want to be something different. I can only control that so much. It’s a natural process so I don’t really have too much control over it.”
Miley obviously knows a thing or two about going au natural. The pop star latest made headlines for going nude in latest video for her second single, ‘Wrecking Ball’—but she insists the power of the video is more than skin deep.
“I think the video is much more,” she said of the emotional ballad. “If people get past the point I make, and you actually look at me, you can tell I look more broken than even the song sounds.”
Miley’s video broke records, beating One Direction’s ‘Best Song Ever’ after ‘Wrecking Ball earned more than 10.9 millions views in a 24-hour period.
What it didn’t do was leave much to the imagination—which is, ironically, what Miley thinks people need to use in order to fully appreciate the video’s message.
“If people can take their minds off the obvious and go into their imagination and see what the video really means it is so vulnerable,” she told the Z-Morning Zoo.
