Miley Cyrus Is Wopping, Not Twerking, in a Unicorn Onesie

Late Wednesday night, much to the delight of the brony community, German leather twink Miley Cyrus posted a video of her dancing to J Dash’s “Wop” in a unicorn onesie. In the wake of that posting, there seems to be confusion among major news organizations as to what constitutes twerking.

Granted, you’re gonna probably learn the difference between a wop and a twerk from parties at lesser state schools, rather than your highbrow journalism programs with heated debate about oxford commas, but that’s no excuse for bad reporting. This is wopping, folks:

Here, Miley is clearly seen performing a classic white girl Wop (demonstrated here), which involves a back and forth rock with the back bent at a 45 degree angle and alternating hand motions. Had she been performing a classic twerk, as popularized by Diplo’s “Express Yourself” or Lady’s “Twerk,” we would have seen Cyrus shaking her ass in more of a hypnotic motion, doing a tango with both gravity and her ass cheeks as to achieve maximum bounce.
