Harry was asked by Moviefone about the recent twerking trend, and although he didn't mention Miley by name, he did voice his displeasure in no uncertain terms for her favorite hobby.
"I think it’s quite inappropriate,” Harry says of twerking. “Especially for the age groups it’s aimed at.”
"I think it’s, you know, promoting promiscuity,” he adds. Huh. Who knew that Harry was, well, a bit of a prude? After all, rumors spread that part of why Harry and Taylor split up is because she wasn't as interested in getting intimate as he was.
This comes in addition to some other not-so-gushing comments that Harry has made about Miley's VMAs performance. "It was very reserved," Harry joked at the NYC premiere of the new One Direction film. "I think she’s quite shy and it’s about time she came out of her shell a bit." He also mocked Miley at the premiere by posing as her and sticking his tongue out of his mouth.
This is a bit of a surprise, considering we hadn't heard of a beef between these two until now. In fact, Miley posted a photo earlier this year of herself snuggling with a cut-out of Harry, so we assumed that the two had nothing but good will for each other.
And pardon us if we're mistaken, but didn't Harry himself engage in a bit of twerking at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards? We believe he did.
So was Harry just joking about finding twerking inappropriate? Or maybe he's had a change of heart since the Teen Choice Awards? Either way, it seems like Harry won't be shaking his butt in public anytime soon — and that is an utter shame.
