Why I'm glad Rihanna's taken back twerking from Miley Cyrus and made it sexy again

OMG – how sexy is Rihanna‘s new video?

After Miley Cyrus traumatised me with the disturbing combination of her videos We Don’t Stop and Wrecking Ball – coupled with her cringe-worthy performance at this year’s MTV VMAs – I thought I never wanted to see twerking AGAIN.

Cause let’s be honest, Miley Cyrus twerking into Robin Thicke or licking a sledgehammer is something we’ll never be able to unsee. Same goes for her stringy saliva. *shudders* 

I never thought I’d say this, but I think Rihanna‘s saved us all.

Featuring strippers wearing nothing but nipple tassles and silly string, Rihanna‘s Pour It Up is so extremely scandalous, it topples Miley Cyrus‘ reign of twerking terror once and for all.

Because, apparently, real twerkers twerk in pools of water.

Where are you Miley Cyrus? I can’t see you beneath all that rubble. OH – maybe that’s why you’re crying?! Your twerking days are O. VER.

But I hate to tell you this, Rihanna, but you’re not off the hook. Your video also has a lot of explaining to do.
