Sage The Gemini, Miley Cyrus, Yiking, Twerking


Get Miley Cyrus on the phone, immediately

Cyrus, who took twerking from a fun thing some people did to something that everyone was doing and would not stop doing, told Rolling Stone that now "people expect me to come out and twerk with my tongue out all the time. I'll probably never do that s--t again."

(If you need a quick refresher on twerking, look no further than our Beginner's Guide.)

She may do this s--t, though: Introducing yiking aka "extreme twerking"! (H/T: Buzzfeed)

Like twerking, yiking has been around for a while now. It's a creation of Bay Area rapper Sage the Gemini  (the same rapper who started that "Gas Pedal" craze) and most people yike to his latest song, "Red Nose."

The titular red nose refers to red nose pit bulls shaking their head. Replace the dog's head with a booty. You got it. 

And that booty needs to be bootylicious. Do your squats first, kids.

"It's extreme twerking. It's twerking's big f--king brother. It's when twerking upgrades," one Yiking How-To tutorial explains. "It's when your s--t is just too twerkadelic, it turns into yiking."

Urban Dictionary defines yike as "like having sex but with clothes on. The girl swivels her hips and ass on the guys or girls pelvis. The guy or girl leading the dance grabs the girls hips and controls the hip movement in some cases."

(Warning: Don't look up yiking on Urban Dictionary. That's something else.)

Here's the gist of it:

1. Bend over.
2. Shift your weight from the right to the left.
3. "Keep going till you can't go no more."

Sage is quick to defend his dance from naysayers: "We got kids, grandmas, everybody watching this," Sage told Sway in the Morning. "If this was based off a strip club, then how many 80-year-olds would be on Vince doing the dance?"

Yes, there are already videos out there of grandmas yiking:

So leave your poor grandma alone.

And keep your tongue in your mouth while yiking, Miley.
