Miley Cyrus twerked. I had to look up the word. I discovered from Wikipedia that twerking "involves a person, usually a woman, shaking her hips in an up-and-down bouncing motion, causing the dancer to shake, 'wobble' and 'jiggle.'" That's precisely what Cyrus did at the recent MTV Video Music Awards and for which she was amply and justifiably criticized. She's a cheap act, no doubt about it, but for me her performance was an opportunity to discuss one of the summer's most arresting pieces of journalism - a long New Yorker account of what became known as the Steubenville Rape. Cyrus should read it.
