Were you aware that “twerk” will be completely over in about a month??! In fact, it may already be over even as you read this (thanks a lot, Miley).
It’s true, at least, according to the season two trailer for Fuse’s Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce.
Season two of His Royal Majesty’s show will have him dealing with drunken diva backup dancers, his mom’s cancer and the ever-impending twerk-shortage threatening to end his reign.
Will Freedia find a new inexhaustible form of Bounce? Will his mouthy booty-shakers finally get their drunken asses in gear? Will his butt-shaking empire earn them all a third season? Join Big Freedia and find out!

Big Freedia — the sissy bounce diva who spread “Peanut Butter” with RuPaul and set the world record for mass twerking — has just dropped a new track called “Explode” off his upcoming June 17 album, Just Be Free.
Regarding the song, Big Freedia recently told Rolling Stone magazine:
"The idea behind 'Explode' is that it was the way I was feeling, like I'm going to explode. Being on the road, being in a relationship, I have a lot of stress and I feel like I'm about to explode. Also, when I'm on stage, I feel like I'm going to explode. That's why I say 'release your wiggle.' This made sense for it to be the first single because I want people to know that I'm coming out with a bang!”
He also explained the thinking behind his album title Just Be Free:
"We live in a society where we have a lot of liberties. It’s just not like this everywhere in the world. This album is my first studio recorded album where I came up with concepts beforehand. So much of my music is appreciated live, but I think these tracks are one you can listen to at a late night twerk party or an afternoon barbecue and enjoy!"

Dame Helen Mirren: thespian, actress, winner of multiple performance awards...and, it would seem, a skilled twerker. While being honored as woman of the year by Harvard University's Hasty Pudding Theatricals on Thursday, Mirren was asked to partake in a game of charades at which point she was given the word "twerking."
She paused, swore, and then turned around to shake her badonkadonk like a proper lady.
