Miley Cyrus vs. Iggy Azalea Twerking VIDEO: Claims 'Wrecking Ball' Singer Copied Her Dance Moves [WATCH]
Rapper Iggy Azalea has accused Miley Cyrus of stealing the twerking dance from her.
Rapper Iggy Azalea has accused Miley Cyrus of stealing twerking dance moves from her.
In a recent interview with Paper magazine, Azalea said she's been twerking since Cyrus, 20, was a child star in Disney's Hannah Montana.
"I've been doing that onstage for two-and-a-half years. [Miley] probably f-cking watched my videos online and decided to try it," the rapper said.
Fuse TV noted that Azalea could be referring to the numerous YouTube uploads of her butt-dancing onstage. One particular video clip got her over 250,000 views.
Azalea isn't the first artist to say that Cyrus' twerking is not on point. Queen of Bounce Big Freedia previously said the Wrecking Ball singer "[doesn't have] any butt control" and "needs more practice." Singer Cher also said that Cyrus didn't twerk properly during her performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards.
According to reports, Cyrus claimed she learned how to twerk while filming So Undercover in New Orleans in 2010.
Meanwhile, Azalea said she doesn't not promote people to do drugs, like Cyrus does in her hit-single, We Can't Stop.
"Do I think it's a great thing to promote? No I don't but I can't really give her a hard time when all the other people I know are too. I don't drink alcohol or do anything which surprises people but I don't try and tell people the opposite either," the rapper said, adding, "hip-hop is notorious for promoting drugs so I can't really say much about it."
The 23-year-old, who is currently preparing to release her debut studio album The New Classic, is only focused on her career.
"I'm a professional. I keep myself separate from everybody else and there's not pictures of me going out to clubs and stuff," Azalea said.
