Washington D.C [USA], Apr. 7 : Twerking may be the next Hollywood weight loss fad as Iggy Azalea recently claimed that she danced away over 6 kilos in one week.
The 26-year-old female emcee joined New Zealand radio station Nova 96.9 and told hosts Fitzy and Wippa that she shed 15 pounds in one week from twerking in her new music video for 'Mo Bounce.' The Australian rapper explained, "It's a lot-I went on a meal plan before the video because I knew I would have to be dancing fairly skimply dressed.
I did a lot of rehearsals actually, and man I lost 15 pounds in a week dancing to that song," E! Online reported.
Admitting that she had some help perfecting her twerking skills, the 'Black Widow' hit-maker said, "I did take classes.
I do have someone who is very, very good at twerking, and she helped me. I never realized how flexible you have to be to do that stuff." She added, "My teacher was like 'I really suggest you take yoga' and I didn't know you had to take yoga to be a twerker but apparently you do.".
