Iggy Azalea Claims Miley Cyrus Stole Twerking From Her

She's known for her hit song "Work," but Australian rapper Iggy Azalea says she would've been known for "twerk" had it been not for Miley Cyrus.

Speaking with Paper magazine, the 23-year-old claims the former Disney princess -- and now often-nude songstress -- totally jacked her moves and stole twerking from her.

"I've been doing that onstage for two-and-a-half years," Azalea says of Cyrus and the grinding dance craze she sparked after her infamous VMAs performance. "She probably f**king watched my videos online and decided to try it."

In the interview, the "Cheeks" singer also notes that she's been twerking with her backup dancers way before she hit it big, but it wasn't until when Beyonce's team caught one of her performances that she became the girl who twerked onstage.

"People just wanna see my butt," Azalea says. "We'd been doing that dance-off at the shows, but no one put it online. At the Bowery, they did."

Don't worry, Miley. At least you've still got the original twerker's seal of approval.
