Hollywood actress Miley Cyrus has come clean on what inspired her to make the Internet sizzle with a steamy viral dancing video and admitted the instant popularity even surprised her.
Despite sparking a number of lovers and haters these past few years, Cyrus said no one has reacted negatively toward the footage.
“I just started dancing and [my friend] recorded it and I showed a few people and they said, ‘Tweet it,’ ” she recalled of the clip, which has since become a trending topic and been embraced by hip-hop celebs from Pharrell Williams and will.i.am to Nelly, Amber Rose and French Montana. “I’m getting so many people writing to me about it. It’s kind of weird that I’ve twerked for 6 million people!” she said before adding, “I’m kind of feeling a little weird.” Miley explained that while she’s received a lot of Internet hate in the past about any number of things (from criticism of her singing abilities to haters calling her a “hillbilly”), she’s received virtually none for her twerking. “I haven’t seen one bad comment about my twerk video, but I can twerk, so whatever!” she said.

She also briefly touched up on the essence of twerking and revealed this was not her first stint at making her booty pop.
For those who aren’t up on twerking yet, Cyrus told Seacrest’s listeners that they should just go online and watch her clip. “I think I gave a pretty good definition. If you go to my Facebook page and click it, you will then see what ‘twerking’ is. You can’t really explain it. It’s something that comes natural. It’s a lot of booty,” she said. “It’s a lot of booty action. “I’ve been practicing probably for the past two years, in my own time, in my living room … I can’t believe how many people think I’m good at twerking, which is dope. My life goal has been accomplished,” she joked. “I shot a movie in New Orleans two years ago and that’s when I became fascinated and obsessed.” (MTV)
The two-minute dance footage turned into an instant hit a few days ago.
It happened. The day has come where Miley Cyrus goes from Disney Country star to straight up ratchet. Miley has been speaking of a new album that will be mostly influenced by the dirty South, for months now. She’s been working with a lot of trill Southern artists like Juicy J. The Pop star/ Country legend is slowly developing a new sound and an entirely different attitude. And I think i like it. Here’s a demo of what’s to come. (Gossip Daily)
No stranger to the hip-hop scene, Miley has spent ample time around rap stars as of late including Three 6 Mafia, Wiz Khalifa, Snoop Dogg and Lil Kim.
Rapper Tiffany Foxx, Lil Kim’s newest artist, just shot a new video with the legendary rapper over the weekend in Los Angeles with some special guests in the mix. Miley Cyrus shot a cameo for the video as well. She and Foxx are recent Twitter friends. Lil Mama appears in the video too. The video is for the song “Twisted,” found on St. Louis native Foxx’s new mixtape “Yellow Tape.” (STL Today)
