Big Freedia's reality TV show, Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce, debuts Oct. 2 on Fuse. In a publicity stunt meant to squeeze a little more life out of Miley Cyrus' twerk at the VMAs, Freedia will lead a crowd of twerking dancers at Herald Square in Manhattan at noon Wednesday, Sept. 25. Guinness World Records will document the event, and a record is assured, since there is no current entry in the field.
Big Freedia talked to Gambit about Cyrus and twerking in this week's cover story. Cyrus's twerking leaves much to be desired, but Freedia thinks it's time to take her career and bounce music to a much wider audience.
