R&B signer Ashanti is not doing anything to slow down the twerk movement after recruiting her mom to join her for some booty-shaking on “Watch What Happens Live” this week.
Footage of the must-see twerking has started to make its round online.
The family that twerks together, stays together. Ashanti taught Andy Cohen some twerking moves when she appeared on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live.” The talk show host caught the R&B singer off guard by showing one of the Douglas family’s twerking videos. After sharing a laugh, he asked Ashanti and her momager, Tina Douglas, to teach him to twerk. Ashanti’s mom got from behind the bar and started booty popping, while Ashanti joined in. But the show’s fellow guest Christina Ricci sat out. (Rap-Up)
A few days ago, Young Money’s Nicki Minaj came clean on releasing a twerk video this month.
“It was like three seconds, come on, yo,” Nicki said when asked about her twerking video. “People are crazy. [laughs] Of course I saw it, I put it out, I was in a [bikini] in a pool, it goes down, ya dig? Number one twerk team captain. Ya dig? B*tches wanna come get it, ya dig? [laughs]” (Hot 97)
In early July, R&B diva Rihanna showed off her twerk skills in a 15-second clip.
Damn, Chris. We’re sorry that you had to see this. We can’t imagine what it would be like for us to watch our ex twerking to music by our nemesis, and hopefully we’ll never have to … but you on the other hand, do have to. Rihanna’s BFF Melissa Forde posted a video of the pop singer twerking inside a Paris hotel room on Monday. A$AP Rocky‘s “F*ckin Problem” is playing in the background, but the girls made sure to post video of Ri dancing during Drake’s verse. It’s definitely worth 15-seconds of your life to watch, so do that below. Enjoy, and again, sorry CB. (Hip Hollywood)
Rapper Ice-T‘s bodacious wife Coco Austin appeared on a recent broadcast of talk show “The Real” to speak on her physical appearance and to twerk.
“Like I said, I was a tomboy and I started noticing I could get a lot out of people at a certain date,” she recalls. “I was like, 18, (and thought) wait a second, I can work with these curves. But I really kind of hide my hips. I hated my hips. Now, I flaunt it. I was always flaunting my boobs. I loved my boobs. I bought them at 18. I loved them,” Coco said. “I was taking away from the hip area. I was covering it up and it wasn’t till I got with my husband, Ice. He’s the one, I give him credit for me being me to this day because he’s the one who’s like, ‘You have something to work with, work it. It’s unique.'” She also shut down rumors of “booty implants” by allowing all of the ladies to touch her backside, all of which led into an impromptu discussion on the twerking phase. Coco, who thinks it’s just another name for “booty shaking,” put her skills on display, instructing everyone that it all starts in the lower back. (VIBE)
