At a recent press day for "One Direction: This Is Us," Styles -- who was being interviewed alongside bandmates Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, and Louis Tomlinson -- revealed his true feelings about the booty-shaking dance move, the same one that helped earn Miley Cyrus some serious backlash following her twerk-heavy performance at this year's MTV Video Music Awards.
"I think it's quite inappropriate," Styles told Moviefone. "Especially for the age groups that it's aimed at."
When we followed up on that question by asking the guys if they're concerned about the sometimes very young age of their fans, Styles chimed in again. "When they're twerking, yes," he added. "I think it's, you know, promoting promiscuity."
Watch One Direction (very candidly) answer a fan's burning twerking question in the video above and catch our full-length, fan-driven Q & A with the band later this week.
