Bounce Queen Big Freedia has finally spoken up about twerkgate, and the outspoken New Orleans artist is the latest to take Miley Cyrus to task over her now-infamous Video Music Awards performance. In a lengthy interview with Fuse.tv (note: Big Freedia: The Queen Of Bounce premieres on the network October 2), the artist known as Freedie Ross declared he’s also the Queen of Twerking, and called the young pop star into the principal’s office and up against the wall. “Just get me and Miley together so I could give her ass some lessons,” Freedia told Fuse. Damn.
Here’s a snippet below, but check out the entire thing, it’s a pretty cool read. And show it to your mom so she knows what the hell everyone’s been talking about this week.
What did you think of Miley’s performance?
She was going too far. She’s trying to twerk, but don’t know how to twerk. It’s become offensive to a lot of people who’ve been twerking and shaking their asses for years, especially in the black culture. But it’s also helpful because it’s putting twerking on the map around the world. I’ve been transforming twerking for the last three years around the world and for her to just come out of the blue and just start twerking, a lot of people are very offended by it, especially in New Orleans. When something get hot, everybody want to jump on the bandwagon and act like they created it. That’s totally understandable but they have to give credit where credit is due.
