Miley Cyrus Has Given Up on Twerking; She’s Columbused the Nae Nae

As if you didn’t see this coming. Self-proclaimed twerk queen Miley Cyrus is over twerking and has “discovered” a new dance. Luckily for her, the Nae Nae doesn’t involve having ample assets, so there will be absolutely no need for the former Disney actress to wear a prosthetic butt.


During an appearance on Australia’s talk show Sunrise, Cyrus demonstrated the “new” dance.

Cyrus stated that her dancers, the L.A. Bakers, taught her the Nae Nae but, of course, failed to give props to WeAreToonz, the original creators. Hell, she couldn’t even tell the show’s host the meaning of the name. But did anyone really expect her to know?

I’m going to assume that white people are at least 18 months behind on everything regarding black culture, or those things that have been associated with it.


People have been doing the Nae Nae forever, but I’m sure, now that Cyrus has given it two thumbs up, it’ll become a mainstream phenomenon. 

Dear Black People:

Let’s stop doing the Nae Nae. Find a new dance, and give the others a few months to catch up.


I Keep Track of This So You Don’t Have To

P.S. (She’ll catch up to the Shmoney dance by January 2015.)

For the record, so far the Nae Nae, do-rags, twerking, cornrows, Timberlands, big butts and slang have been jacked. Check back next week; I’m sure I’ll have something new to share.
