Thicke on Miley’s VMA twerking: ‘This is wacky’

We've heard heaps from the twerker herself. Now, the "twerkee" is speaking out.
Robin Thicke, the self-described "twerkee" of the most talked-about VMAs since, oh, last year's show, has opened up to Oprah Winfrey about his role in the apocalyptic (if you believe Saturday Night Live) episode of rump-shaking.
"This is funny to me, it's silly," Thicke tells the talk show titan on Sunday's Oprah's Next Chapter.
"You didn't think it was sexual?" Oprah asks.
"I was on stage. I didn't see it," Thicke says. "So to me, I'm walking out towards Miley (and) I'm not thinking sex. I'm thinking fun, you know?"
"But she's twerking up against your … cojones."
"But just remember, I'm singing my butt off so I'm sitting there, I'm looking up at the sky, and I'm not really paying attention to all that," Thicke says. "That's on her."
"People ask me, 'Do you twerk?' I go, 'Listen, I'm the twerkee," ' he continues, laughing. "I'm twerked upon. I don't twerk myself, OK? I'm just twerked upon."
That said, "I wasn't offended by it personally, you know, because I think some people, they see that and they go, 'This is so sexual.' … And to me, I'm sitting there going, 'This is wacky.' "
The twerking twins, incidentally, will reunite on Dec. 16 in Washington, D.C., for Hot 99.5's Jingle Ball 2013.
