Robin Thicke and Miley Cyrus
The word "twerk" has twerked its way into the Oxford dictionary, thanks to singer Miley Cyrus’ raunchy Video Music Awards performance this past Sunday. Twerking is essentially shaking one’s backside, like one is on stage at a strip club challenging the honor and integrity of one’s family in clear sight of the public.
Cyrus has been hit with a significant amount of criticism for her r-rated performance (r is for "ratchet" another slang word that's scaring and scarring many, which could also hit the dictionary). The VMAs is proving a turning point in Cyrus' career, but sadly not for the better, as now she is known for strip club antics, rather than her acting and singing abilities.
