Big Freedia, star of the Fuse TV show Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce, recently won a Guinness World Records title for most people twerking simultaneously with more than 250 people in New York's Herald Square. That was the first time anyone had tried to get twerking into the Guinness Book of World Records.
