One Direction’s main heartthrob Harry Styles has seemingly channeled Pat Robertson by suggesting that twerking can lead to “promiscuity.”
The teen idol decried the dance as “inappropriate” because its audience is often little kids, despite the fact that he himself has twerked in front of impressionable children at the Teen Choice Awards, the New York Daily News reports. Harry does have a point though; it’s sort of creepy to see all the parents who think it’s cute to post videos on Facebook of their kindergarteners gyrating suggestively.
The general consensus about the fad is that Miley Cyrus hammered the final nail in the coffin at the VMAs — even Demi Lovato used Twitter to ask the world to stop talking about it. We hear and shall obey.
