Hail to the Queen! Big Freedia has rescheduled a Hattiesburg, Mississippi performance that was canceled last month over concerns of excessive twerking

Freedia’s Dollar Box Showroom show will now take place on Mar. 25, after a Feb. 12 performance at the venue was canceled because the state’s Alcohol Beverage Control contacted the Showroom and warned of a parade of “gyrating” and a “strip show.” Because a performance with nudity would have been a code violation, the show was forced to be scrapped.

Thankfully, Big Freedia has clarified what twerking means to the ABC, and the show shall go on. She’s also declared that Mar. 25 is the “1st Annual International Twerk Day!”

Freedia recently assisted Beyoncé with her new single “Formation.” Click here to read her thoughts on linking up with Queen Bey.
