Hollywood actress Hayden Panettiere was at the 2013 Environmental Media Awards recently, where she was honoured with the Future Award, which acknowledges the young stars who have the potential to become environmental activists. While giving her acceptance speech at the awards ceremony, Hayden touched on the subject of twerking, saying that it will not save the environment.
Panettiere joked to the listening crowd, "I mean, the fact that I’m 5’2” and my boyfriend’s 6’6” is not going to help the environment. It’s not. And twerking is not going to save the environment. I think it speeds it up."
While Hayden was clearly just poking a bit of fun, she does have a bit of a point in what she says. It sometimes beggars belief that something as ridiculous as twerking can become a global phenomenon. But with celebrities such as Miley Cyrus promoting such a thing, it is easy to see why it has happened.
Meanwhile, it was recently confirmed that Hayden Panettiere and her boyfriend Wladimir Klitschko, who is the boxing heavyweight champion of the world, are engaged, following the official announcement by Hayden on Live with Kelly and Michael.
