Lizzo sparked a frenzy on social media when she twerked at courtside during Sunday's Los Angeles Lakers vs Minnesota Timberwolves game.

When the cheerleaders performed a dance routine to her hit song "Juice" during a timeout, the 31-year-old singer stood up, turned her back to the floor and twerked at Staples Center on Dec. 08 in Los Angeles.

Lizzo wore a long black t-shirt dress with cut outs to expose her bare butt cheeks clad in a black string thong.

Social media users lost their minds as the video went viral online. But some criticized Lizzo for her sexually suggestive attire.

Ironically, Atlanta's Jezebel magazine was the staunchest critic, calling Lizzo's thong "gross" and "unhygienic."

This is the same Jezebel magazine that defended 12-year-old Zion Wade for wearing a crop top, leggings and acrylic nails.

Jezebel, a liberal magazine, writes:

"Here's the truth: the dress is a cool, good, fun look. She should be able to trot around with her butt out at a family-friendly event; Americans could stand to be less prudish. However, I cannot stop thinking about her exposed ass and... other sensitive areas... sitting on a stadium seat. That shit is so gross! Maybe she placed a jacket underneath her booty? I can only hope someone reminded her to protect her vagine?" [sic]

Twerking is a dance that has come a long way since its humble beginnings in strip clubs. The dance originally required a strong back, an ample butt and a stripper pole for maximum affect.

But these days, anyone can do it.

Bobby Shmurda

One-hit wonder Bobby Shmurda and his entire crew of hard legs were arrested in a New York undercover task force sting. Apparently the NYPD infiltrated Shmurda's clique and caught him and his boys red-handed in the possession of drugs and unlicensed firearms. It didn't help that some of the guys were convicted felons.

Will Smith and Jimmy Fallon

Popular late night comedian Jimmy Fallon is the new host of The Tonight Show. Fallon took over the reigns of The Tonight Show following NBC's announcement last Spring that Leno would leave The Tonight Show. Fallon has a healthy respect for Hip Hop, as evidenced by his hilarious "Evolution of Hip Hop Dance" skit with Will Smith on Monday.

Smith and Fallon performed many of the familiar dance moves that have (thankfully) come and gone, such as my personal favorite "The Carlton Dance," named after Carlton, from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
