No Twerking Required


Reading really is fundamental. At least, that’s the message Juicy J is sending now that he’s handed out his $50,000 “twerking” scholarship.

We told you late last year that Juicy J had announced on social media that he was going to give a scholarship away to “the best chick that can twerk.”

There was backlash, even a boycott of his latest album, something Juicy J just really didn’t understand: “Why? I’m giving back to the community…I’m giving money away.”

And while he claimed the scholarship was inspired by twerking, according to the complete rules he allegedly had, you DID NOT have to twerk in order to win the money. But of course, many women sent him videos of themselves twerking in the house, twerking on the ground, even twerking on trees–except for Zaire Holmes. The mother of one and biology major at the State College of Florida read the complete rules, saw that you weren’t required to twerk to win, and sent in everything but a booty-bouncing video in order to enter the giveaway. The 19-year-old ended up winning. As Juicy said in the video where he awarded her the huge check, “It’s not always about shaking your a**.”

“Next time I send out a tweet about a scholarship, make sure you take it seriously. Read the words.”

Holmes says that as a biology major, the money will be able to cover all of her lab expenses, and she cried when she was given the check. “A lot of people thought that you had to twerk, but you actually had to read the rules.”

How crazy is that!? Congratulations to Holmes on getting the money she needs to get her education. The joke was on us!


Basically you didn't have to twerk according to the rules. I lol'd but I feel bad for the other girls.
