Big Freedia led 358 booty shakers to break the Guinness world record for mass-twerking in New York City!

The Guinness folks meant business: there was an official on-site that actually established rules for proper twerking!

Participants had to twerk simultaneously for 2 minutes.

Here in New Orleans, we’re always down to twerk with Big Freedia because we get it. But it seems like fans in the electronic band The Postal Service just don’t get Big Freedia.

Of all bands, Big Freedia opened for The Postal Service in a recent concert and the two styles of music just didn’t work!

Fans were confused and many of them took to Twitter to complain about Big Freedia.

It’s not all that uncommon for New Orleans musicians to open up for big acts: the Rebirth Brass Band opened up for the Red Hot Chili Plast year, and the Soul Rebels have opened for Metallica and Green Day as well.

Check out some of the Tweets from the concert here (but be careful … some language is not suitable for children):
