Twerking promotes promiscuity, says Harry

03 September 2013, 16:39

Los Angeles - Harry Styles has branded twerking "inappropriate".

Despite pulling off a 'twerking' routine for the cameras at the Teen Choice Awards last month, the One Direction singer hit out at people who perform the controversial dance move - which sees a person shake their hips and butt in an up-and-down bouncing motion - saying it "promotes promiscuity" among young girls.

He told US film listings website Moviefone: "I think it's quite inappropriate. Especially for the age groups that it's aimed at.

"I think it's, you know, promoting promiscuity."

All the fuss over Miley

Harry also recently defended Miley Cyrus' twerk-heavy performance at the MTV Video Music Awards - in which she grinded alongside Robin Thicke in a nude-coloured latex bikini during a rendition of his Blurred Lines hit - and joked her racy routine was "family friendly".

When asked his opinion about her antics, he quipped: "Very reserved.

"She's quite shy and I think it's time she came out of her shell.

"[It was] family friendly. You could watch it with your kids and your grandma."

The 19-year-old hunk's bandmate Liam Payne also made light of 20-year-old Miley's twerking performance, describing it as "cute", while Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson didn't see what the fuss was about.

Niall said: "I don't get why everyone is sulking about her."

Louis added: "I was shocked at how much coverage it got and I think she was shocked. I don't think she even knew she'd get that much attention from it."
