TLC’s T-Boz Stands Up For Miley Cyrus: Keep Twerkin, It’s Selling

Miley Cyrus may not have many people in her corner saying "go ahead girl, keep on twerkin," but Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins (of TLC) is all for it.

"Let’s be real, girls have been naked and doing stuff like this, twerkin’ — it’s just a different name for gyratin’, booty-shakin’, they just change the name, people been doing it since the end of time, why are they riding Miley so hard about what a lot of them have been doing the same thing? She’s coming out with good music, she’s doing her thing, it’s selling, and evidently the twerk is not stopping the record sales," T-Boz told VH1 on the red carpet at VH1's "CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story" premiere this week.

Whether or not you agree with T-Boz, she does have a point. Miley Cyrus' music is selling and honestly, it's selling better than any of her previous efforts.

Landing at no.1 on the Billboard 200 Wednesday, Cyrus' "Bangerz" album sold 270,000 copies in the U.S. — her best debut to date.

In related news, Miley Cyrus has been asked to perform at the MTV Europe Music Awards. Joining a line up that includes Katy Perry, Cyrus will be performing when the show takes place November 10 at Amsterdam's Ziggo Dome.
