Speaking of cheerleaders.... one night at a football game when the band played this pep song the cheerleaders would do a little dance if they got their act together and wasn't in little clumps of girls talking to one another deciding what cheer of the 4 they had or what formation of the 3 they had to do next. Most were very composed about it except for the cheerleading team's Beyoncé equivalent. Regardless of whether the team was starting to do their little foot movements and pom pom shaking, "Beyoncé" would start her thrusting and grinding and nasty dance to the music. She just looked like a cheap hussy. It was shameful. No wonder the band played that song so much!

She wasn't up there on a stripper pole, she's a trained dancer. And as much as I don't like her, I can give credit where credit is due.
Really, what culture is that, HeartDrama?
I didn't realize that little blonde southern belles were encouraged to thrust and grind on the sidelines as a cultural thing.
