Fans of Pitch Perfect 2 may be pumped for all the singing coming soon to the big screen. But Brittany Snow is here to warn you there's so much more than just a few a cappella numbers.

Yes, there's some twerking involved with this highly anticipated sequel.

"One of my favorite scenes to do was this number where we really get dirty with our dancing," she revealed in the May issue of Cosmopolitan. "We had a month of rehearsals learning how to do things I'm just not cool enough to do in my real life."

As it turns out, Snow could still use some help on her twerking skills. 

"I'm a really bad twerker—I still haven't figured out how to do it," she confessed. "I actually hurt my back one day. I woke up the next morning and my back was completely tweaked out…from twerking." 

Perhaps boyfriend Tyler Hoechlin was around to help her out. Yes, Snow is in a happy relationship with the Teen Wolf star. And if you didn't already know, it's likely because she doesn't talk about it too much.

"Sometimes if you give too much away, it loses its magic, as cheesy as that sounds. We like to keep our moments to ourselves, which is why we don't do much social media," Snow explained. "We're not hiding anything. We're not not wanting people to know."

She added, "Social media, for me, is about interacting with people who follow my career. I don't think my relationship has anything to do with my career. So we just keep it simple, try not to think about it that much, and just be us."

One thing that isn't a secret is Snow's belief that dating musicians is so yesterday. While she admits to having a fascination with live performances, Snow has learned that being in a romantic relationship with a singer may not be the best bet.  

"Until recently, I always dated musicians. I have this fascination with being on the road, all things music, and the '70s," she shared. "My favorite movie is Almost Famous. I don't date musicians anymore, but I still hang out creepily at concerts and venues." After all, she loves some aca-awesome music!
