Sissy bounce queen Big Freedia appeared on last night's episode of FXX's Totally Biased to promote her upcoming reality show on Fuse. Her ensuing interview with W. Kamau Bell was a refreshing alternative to the online hysteria about twerking, Miley Cyrus, and cultural appropriation. Freedia, as you may know, attempted to set a world record for twerking on Wednesday in New York, though the claim that she succeeded in setting said record is being contested. Either way, she knows her stuff.

Big Freedia is the undisputed queen of sissy bounce. She's a New Orleans hip-hop diva who's toured around the country with a twerking team long before the word demanded a supercut. Her signature track is "Azz Everywhere," though she's also got one called "Make Ya Booty Go," and now Big Freedia wants to reclaim her association with p-popping by setting the Guinness World Record™ for "Most People Twerking Simultaneously," a feat that will be attempted in New York City's Herald Square any minute now.
