Iggy Azalea On Miley Cyrus

Quotes and their contexts.

Nobody could quite twerk out what was occurring onstage when Miley Cyrus performed at the MTV Video Music Awards in August. The perplexing feeling was felt through the hearts, minds and internets of people everywhere — and Miley's whole twerk ethic continues to be a #hottopic.

Now the internet (including us) is talking about how our cover star from Oyster #103, Iggy Azalea, is weighing in on said topic. The quote in question comes from her recent interview with Paper Magazine, where (when questioned on Miley Cyrus' new dance move obsession) she said "I've been doing that on stage for two and a half years. She probably fucking watched my videos online and decided to try it."

But every quote has a context, and as our girl told us via Twitter, that one was more complex that it sounds. As she puts it, "They asked if I think she's ever seen videos of my old twerk comps," adding, "it was said in a light hearted way. Twerking is not something that I have ownership of nor something I consider my 'swag.'"

And that's why you should always verify hear-say, children. Still though, Iggy is really good at twerking. Better than Miley, not that it's a competition. But if it was, Iggy would definitely win.
