So while President Obama was making his way through the city, hundreds of New Yorkers didn’t flock to grab a snapshot of Number 44. Oh no! Instead, folks went to Herald Square to watch New Orleans musician Big Freedia earn the Guiness World Record for Twerking.
I promise you I didn’t make this up.
Big Freedia, who helped make Bounce culture popular, showed everyone, young and old, how to properly Twerk. Take a look at some of the Instagram videos and grab your daily dose of ratchetness. I mean, everyone needs a little pick me up, right?
