Los Angeles: Singer Demi Lovato says she has grown tired of the hype created around the word twerking and wishes it vanishes soon.

The 21-year-old former Disney star took to Twitter to express her disappointment with the excessive use of the word that has been in news constantly ever since pop star Miley Cyrus`s controversial MTV Video Music Award performance, reported E! online.

"Can the world stop talking about twerking please? By the way- no shade thrown... The term twerking just needs to disappear like the word swag does too. I just don`t know what happened to the word `dancing`...," Lovato tweeted.

Cyrus has been highly criticised for her tongue waging and twerky performance with Robin Thicke on `Blurred Lines` at the MTV Video Music Awards recently.

Post her performance, a lot is being said about the word `Twerking` with it even making to Oxford dictionary.
