Twerk. Yeah, that’s right, you read that correctly. It’s sad to say that this so called “dance” is taking over. It is completely asinine and trashy, and it doesn’t help that this “dance” is creating a craze all throughout the world. It’s called the Twerk Epidemic. This “dance” is making headlines and pretty much everywhere you look nowadays, you see something in regards to it. This is due to the fact that certain celebrities appear to endorse it by constantly doing it…ahem, Miley Cyrus. I’m sure if you have read any news articles in the past day or if you watched it first hand via the Video Music Awards on MTV, you know exactly what I am referring to. Viewers are in such a state of shock by how X-rated her performance was and it is all people our age are talking about today. How disappointing.
We hear it on the radio, we hear it on the news, we see it on TV, a lot of people have twerked first-handedly, and now it’s all anybody can talk about to each other. I didn’t even get to watch the VMAs and yet I’ve been informed of all the horror that others viewed last night, all except those artists who actually won an award. Shocker in today’s society. Oh, how I miss the days when we could have personal and intelligent conversations with one another and hear something truly important other than another celebrity absolutely losing it. It never ceases to amaze me with how people just can’t be okay with who they are and just be themselves all of the time, and those who are rarely get recognition. As a celebrity, the constant spotlight means that you should essentially set a good example for others, but lately, that means nothing. Honestly, a part of me is ashamed that I’m even writing a current event about this topic, however the subject matter was left open for me to decide and this event has been all over several, if not all forms of media. It’s time to call it out and bring an end to this horrible and unfortunate “dance” craze.
It’s become a rare occasion when the media portrays something good. It is a disappointing thing to realize how much media has changed. Even though technology has progressed, it seems our stories have gone to crap. One would think that our stories would only get deeper and more interesting, but entertainment media forms have only gone downhill. It’s about time we kicked back into our creative overdrive and laid these crappy and even worthless stories to rest. It’s time to earn respect again and bring back a good name to the media.
