The One Direction boys appeared to be very intrigued (and perhaps a little confused) by Miley Cyrus' raunchy performance at the 2013 MTV VMAs.

As it turns out, though, Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Zayn Malik are not all fans of the Queen of Twerk's dance moves—even if she is very, very good at them.

In an interview with Moviefone, the This Is Us stars were asked who among them was the best twerker. "I think Niall," Liam said. "Niall has the most twerking experience."

Harry, however, gave credit where credit was due, saying, "I think Miley's the best."

Niall had to agree, admitting, "Yeah, Miley's the best. She's great."

And what if, hypothetically, any of the 1D boys were to face Ms. Cyrus in a twerk-off?  "I think Harry would win," Niall offered.

"Yeah?" Harry asked, turning to Niall. "No, I reckon you would win."

Louis couldn't help but note, "Everyone buzzes off this twerk thing!"

"Personally, I think it's overly sexual," Liam said.

Harry agreed wholeheartedly, saying, "I think it's quite inappropriate…Especially with the age groups that it's aimed at."

When the interviewer asked if the boys worried about how young some 1D fans are, Harry quipped, "When they're twerking, yes! I think, you know, [twerking] is promoting promiscuity."

Perhaps so, but Mr. Styles shouldn't cast too many stones from that glass house of his.  He showed off his own booty-poppin', twerktastic moves at the 2013 Teen Choices Awards, later tweeting, "Note to self. Don't 'twerk'."

Actually, do twerk.
