The Original Twerk Team: Miley Cyrus Twerking Is Not Our Twerking

CelebritiesDirt Bag

The Twerk Team, the sister act of Lady Luscious and Mizz Twerksum, are online sensations who have taught a generation to Twerk through their YouTube videos. When asked if they feel Miley has stolen or otherwise tarnished their sunshine by rubbing herself all over twerking, they said:

“We don’t feel any way about it but I feel like people want us to. 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.”

They went on to say that “[y]ou can’t mention twerk without the official Twerk Team. Our shows were good before Miley Cyrus said anything about Twerk.” Which, true. [Madame Noire]

_ONTD _got a sneak peek at next week’s Dancing With the Stars song list, and saw that **Elizabeth Berkley is performing to I’m So Excited by The Pointer Sisters! **AHHHH!!!!!

For the uninformed, on a season-two episode of Saved by the Bell, Berkley’s character Jesse got addicted to caffeine pills as a means to keep up with her busy school schedule and her singing group commitments. Before she is set to perform “I’m So Excited”, Zack (Mark Paul Gosselaar) discovers her pill problem and attempts to wrestle them away from her. Jesse, in a now iconic scene, wants to show her best friend that she’s just fine by trying to sing the lyrics to the song, but she eventually dissolves into hysterics admitting that she’s not so excited, she’s so scared! Watch the glorious Bell moment for yourself if you need to really feel the emotions.

I repeat: AHHHH!!! [ONTD]
