News that the two have recorded the song together, which also features Bieber’s pal Lil Twist. The up-tempo track is produced by Meajor Ali and hasn’t officially been released yet, and there has been no word on whether or not this is the final version of the song.

We gonna party til it’s over.” VIDEO: Miley’sHannah Montanamom Brooke Shields weighs in on her performance “We can take it slow, don’t need nobody to know,” he adds. Maybe this is just another banger that’s going to be on Miley’s highly anticipated album , Bangerz? Only time will tell. The title of the soon-to-be hit track is surely timely. Just today it was announced that the dance term was officially added to the Oxford dictionary . Given that the former Disney darling twerked for the world in everything from a unicorn onesie to flesh-colored, latex lingerie at the 2013 MTV VMAs, it seems like she should be part of the definition.

According to Oxford Dictionaries, the term twerking originated in the ’90s aka back when a pre-twerk Miley was just a little girl growing up in Tennessee. The “informal” verb is defined as “[dancing] to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance.” (Way to make it super technical, linguists.) Oxford Dictionaries’ Katherine Connor Martin said, per ABC News , twerking is most likely “an alteration of work, because that word has a history of being used in similar ways, with dancers being encouraged to ‘work it.'” “The ‘t’ could be a result,” she added, “of blending with another word such as twist or twitch.” Terrific!
Justin Bieber ‘banned from driving’ in California
California residents are required to obtain a valid license within ten days of securing residency. The website reports Justin purchased his Calabasas home in June, violating that rule. The Canadian singer is said to have cooperated with officers and was cited for running a stop sign and being unlicensed. He was also reportedly “ordered out of the driver’s seat,” meaning his passenger had to drive the car home. A spokesperson for the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department was unable to confirm the traffic stop to Cover Media at press time. Justin will be required to obtain a valid California license from the Department of Motor Vehicles before he can get back behind the wheel. A spokesperson for the star did not respond to a request for comment from Cover Media. This would not be the first time Justin has faced a traffic citation. The singer was accused by neighbours of driving recklessly and reaching speeds of up to 100 mph in his gated community earlier this year and became the subject of a police investigation after one resident claimed Justin assaulted him during a confrontation about the matter. A spokesperson for the star denied the claims. Justin was also cleared of an alleged hit-and-run collision last month. The claim stemmed from an incident outside a West Hollywood, California nightclub in June in which Justin was accused of injuring a photographer while behind the wheel.
