People are saying...
“I think you're taking her comment about "do we want her in our club?" way too seriously. I think she meant it in a tongue in cheek way. It's just a means of asking if she is really representing something positive for women and equality. Not a great way to word, but I know what she meant. Also, I don't see how Miley is "appropriating twerk culture". She's a 20 year old girl...it's like PART of her culture and generation. Just because she doesn't look like the people who coined the "shake your ass like a stripper" term, doesn't mean she's so removed from it. She's just having fun with it and doesn't seem to be hurting or exploiting anyone by doing so.

“I've always taken cultural appropriation to be taking some symbolic part of another culture, then replicating it in a cheap and usually inaccurate way, and hence stripping it of its original meaning and context. The Miley case is difficult to discern -- on one hand it could be seen as appropriation of black culture, on the other we have to ask: why do we immediately associate this hyper-sexualised act with black culture? I personally have no grounding to comment on this matter, but there's always interesting debates elsewhere to read.

“"The tour’s art and animation was even conceptualized by John Kricfalusi, creator of Ren and Stimpy. " This aged so poorly. No shade on Miley tho. Mostly I just feel bad for her for having to collaborate with him, if at all, because that must've been a nightmare.
