The Word: Miley Cyrus twerks with a monkey and a muppet thing

Do you think Miley Cyrus ever regrets becoming the poster child for twerking? I mean, she’s clearly into it, but I bet everywhere she goes now, people are like, “Twerk, Miley, twerk! Twerk in this dry cleaners! Twerk in this hat!” and probably sometimes she is like “Sigh, not now, I am trying to enjoy this TED talk.” But she is Twerk Girl now. So she has to do it.

That’s probably how she ended up twerking with a monkey in a cowboy costume on her back, anyway. Miley tweeted a photo of the simian pas de deux. It doesn’t actually look like there’s much twerking going on, since she’s sprawled out on the floor, but the monkey does look terrified, so maybe there’s more motion than I can see.

Miley also tweeted a photo of her humping a big furry muppet-looking gentleman, but that was just for fun I’m sure.

In any event, Miley has obviously learned nothing from her much-panned performance at the VMAs. In fact, it seems like our tsk-tsk-ing is only feeding the low-rent Gwen Stefani-wannabe beast. Case in point, she not only wore this outfit to the iHeartRadio Music Festival this weekend, but she also butt-slapped a twerking little person and sang into a banana microphone. I mean, we already have one Ke$ha. Does the world really need another?

Miley continues to wage war on our childhoods. Credit: Miley Cyrus’ Twitter
