Miley Cyrus Twerking: Does a Handstand Up Against the Wall Count?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Miley Cyrus' Twerking has inspired a new meme, in which she Twerks in various inappropriate situations. But is it even actually Twerking that's depicted?

Miley Cyrus Handstand

Twerking, according to Wikipedia, is a portmanteau of twist and jerk, or to work it; Twerk means to "dance in a sexually suggestive twisting fashion."

Moreover, it's a "dance move that involves shaking the hips and bottom in a bouncy up and down motion, causing it to shake, 'wobble' and 'jiggle.'"

The Urban Dictionary calls it "rhythmic gyrating of lower extremities in a lascivious manner," which sums up Miley Cyrus Twerking like a woman possessed.

Is the photo used in the aforementioned meme an accurate example of it, though? Can one still Twerk if positioned like this against a wall?

Some critics say this is merely a handstand, and inconsistent with the definition of Twerking. Defenders say it's just a different expression of the dance move.

Settle this for us, THGers: Is Miley Cyrus Twerking above?
