Rizzle Kicks have become the latest stars to wade in on the famous twerking debate, with Jordan Stephens admitting that he finds the booty-shaking dance move rather “arousing,” and naming rapper Iggy Azalea as his favourite twerker.
The dynamic duo, whose new single 'Lost Generation' is currently at number four on the UK charts, are known for creating infectious dance moves most notably their 'Mama Do The Hump' shuffle, so it comes as no surprise that they have some thoughts on the latest dance craze to sweep celebland that has been pioneered by 'queen of twerking' Miley Cyrus.

“It depends who's doing it really, it can be arousing. I don't know their names, just saw them about,” Jordan told EntertainmentWise. Harley chimed in: “Iggy Azalea's quite good at it.”
With images of Iggy booty-popping in his mind, an excited Jordan added: “Oh, Iggy Azalea, she can twerk for me. But the term's just starting to annoy me now a little bit. 'Twerking, twerk it, twerk it,' stop talking about f**king twerking it's doing my head in.”
Miley caused outrage over the weekend when she gave a racy performance of 'Blurred Lines' alongside Robin Thicke at the MTV Video Music Awards, during which she proceeded to gyrate and twerk into Thicke's crotch scantily-clad in a nude latex bikini.
Revealing his thoughts on Miley's twerking skills, Jordan said: “I don't care, Miley Cyrus can do what the f**k she likes... she's just clearly a little bit nuts. But so what, let her do her thing.”

Blasting critics for making the craze into a racial issue, Jordan continued: “Some people start to get racial like white people can't twerk but watch Iggy Azalea twerk and then say that again. Real talk. And what do you mean white people can't twerk? Like you can't cross races in terms of where something is originated from.
“Because black people invented twerking as a dance move white people can't do it. So when Beyonce and Lady Gaga do a song together no one's complaining then are they? Ignorant b******s man, just let Miley Cyrus do her thing,” he added.
