Dita Von Teese: Twerking is not beautiful
Dita Von Teese doesn't find Miley Cyrus' twerking routine "beautiful".
The burlesque dancer is not entertained by the 'Wrecking Ball' hitmaker's penchant for the dance craze - which involves her shaking her hips and bottom up and down and made waves when she did it in a latex bikini at this year's MTV Video Music Awards in New York City.
Dita is totally underwhelmed by Miley's dancing and would prefer to look at photographer Helmut Newton's images which are famed for being provocative and erotically charged.
She told the New York Post newspaper: "I'm not someone who is appalled by Miley Cyrus, thinking it's vulgar.
"I love the very beautiful combined with the vulgar. The problem is, I don't find it very beautiful. I'm more interested in looking at a Helmut Newton photograph of fetishistic situations and nudity and eroticism ... that drives my imagination, not the everyday vulgarity."
However, Miley's twerking has made her one of the most talked about pop stars of 2013 and helped her earn the title of MTV's Artist of the Year for dominating the music charts and giving memorable stage performances.
