Normani channels Janet Jackson with Teyana Taylor at 2021 VMAs

The girls were going “Wild” at the MTV Video Music Awards

Pushing lustiness to its limits, Normani, 25, punctuated her VMAs performance of “Wild Side” with a steamy girl-on-girl grind, featuring Teyana Taylor. 

In the last 30 seconds of the R&B bombshell’s already sultry showcase, Taylor, 30, appeared onstage strapped to a human-shaped bondage board.

Normani sent fans into a viral frenzy when she straddled Taylor’s toned body for a titillating twerk session. 

The breathless scene came to a climax when Normani hooked her heels into the base of the bondage board and dipped backward, bringing her and Taylor’s lady parts dangerously close together. 

The former Fifth Harmony singer’s devilish display was an obvious nod to pop powerhouse Janet Jackson, who slayed a similarly saucy presentation in her 2002 Live in Hawaii performance of “Would You Mind.”

And needless to say, Twitter went wild.

“Normani paying homage to Janet Jackson with Teyana Taylor was honestly the sexiest thing I’ve seen,” one fired up fan tweeted. “It’s the Janet Jackson homage for me! If my spine would act right I could move just like Normani! #VMAs,” chimed another online onlooker.

So far, Janet Jackson, 55, has yet to publicly comment on Normani’s honorable acknowledgment.
