Miley be twerking.
What is a ‘twerk’ and where do I get one?
Twerking is a dance move in which you shake your bum independently from the rest of your body. Observe:

There are a bazillion instructional videos on Youtube, but the most popular has over 12 million hits (the majority of which were probably ol’ Miles, bless her heart). Check it:
Hmmm. I’m still don’t know… Is this actually a thing people do or are you having a laugh?
