Harry Styles of One Direction Slams Twerking

Sounds like one member of One Direction wasn’t a fan of Miley Cyrus‘ 2013 MTV Video Music Awards performance. Harry Styles lashed out at twerking in general — and since the craze has been largely associated with Miley since she adopted her new “urban” identity, this could possibly read as some subtle shade at the starlet.

“I think it’s quite inappropriate,” Styles admitted to Moviefone. “Especially for the age groups that it’s aimed at.” Read? Cyrus’ young fans, most likely.

Styles also confessed that he does worry about their younger Directioners perhaps being negatively influenced by the twerking phenomenon in the media. “[I worry] when they’re twerking, yes,” he chuckled. He got serious, though, when he added, “I think it’s, you know, promoting promiscuity.”

While one can easily attack Styles for allegedly possibly slut shaming with that statement, it’s also important to keep in mind that he’s speaking about the affects of twerking and overly sexual images on young fans, not adults — so he sort of has a point. Et tu, Cyrus?
