Singer-songwriter Ciara gives the camera a classy twerk and sets the internet ablaze. The goodies singer entered the music singer in the early 2000s as the princess of pop and is now Mrs. Russell “Dangeruss” Wilson. The Like a boy singer was celebrated by fans to be the belle of the ball in spite of appearing with women far younger than her at the Dolce & Gabbana fashion show on Sunday, Aug. 29.
Normani and Ciara pass the “Knees Like Megan” Test
Normani and Meg The Stallion began an impromptu “knees like Megan” session and the ATL beauty joined the two serving high fashion knees. Celebrities like Jennifer Hudson, Diddy, and his modeling twin daughters, as well as other high-profile stars, were in attendance at the three-day event in Italy that took place from Aug. 28 to 30. Fashion designers presented their Alta Moda, Alta Sartoria, Alta Gioielleria and Alta Orologeria collections at the star-studded extravaganza.
“Mambo” means voodoo Priestess (a black woman)
“Mambo Italiano” by Dean Martin was playing in the background while Ciara, Megan Thee Stallion, and Normani danced. Mambo literally means dance and black female voodoo priestess, this was an invitation for the beautiful black women to grace the Italians with their world-famous twerking. They began gracefully gyrating in high fashion dresses creating a unique and enviable spectacle. Ciara elegantly slithered down and back up again in a way that seemed magical given the constraints of her gown. As the video progressed, the “Get Up” singer was seen cheering them on before joining the pair once again with a slow-motion whine.
“Mambo” is Also a Style of Dance Similar to the Rumba which has African Origins
Fans immediately focused on Ciara’s classy twerking after the initial video started spreading on social media. While Mega and Normani took a normal approach to twerk, Ciara as a seasoned professional dancer presented her style of twerking as fine art. Some internet users even suggested that because she is married, her dancing skills are different from Megan and Normani’s. Others agreed that Ciara is simply more of a fine artist than she has been given credit for being in the past. Ciara seemed to be using her body as a canvas for painting a picture in an exclusive museum fit for display next to the Mona Lisa.
Social Media Users Calling the Twerking Distasteful and Disgraceful
In contrast to fans praising Ciara, many people claimed that twerking is not necessarily necessary at a fancy event like this. Some disgruntled commentators called the twerking disgraceful and uncalled for at such an event. While we can agree that there is a time and a place for twerking, a party with music is certainly one of them.
