Demi Lovato is so sick of hearing about twerking.

The “Heart Attack” singer wrote on Tuesday, “Can the world stop talking about twerking please?”

Lovato clarified that she was absolutely not dissing her pal Cyrus, but said she’s just over the trend.

She tweeted, “Btw – no shade thrown.. Don’t even try to start that crap. Haha… the term twerking just needs to disappear like the word swag does too.”

The “X Factor” judge went on to offer, “I just don’t know what happened to the word ‘dancing’…. Can I getta amen?!!”

Harry Styles also recently bashed twerking, saying it’s “inappropriate” and promotes “promiscuity.”
