So, Jennifer Lopez has a new song called “Booty” because a long time ago, before Kim Kardashian and Iggy Azalea, she was the face of having-a-booty.
It’s silly to even rank J.Lo’s butt with the butts of today, and it’s even sillier to think that J.Lo’s booty shaking performance in her new video for “Booty” is even worth calling “twerking.”
The dance-uneducated population of the Internet is calling Jennifer Lopez’s new video a fabulous “twerk performance,” even suggesting that J.Lo will “show us how to twerk.”
We’re sorry, but you guys literally don’t know what twerking is.
This is J.Lo in the video for "Booty," doing what the Internet presumes to be “twerking.”
This is real twerking.
