Missy Elliott is hotter than hot and fired up the MTV VMAs Monday night with an out of this world, electrifying performance of “Get Ur Freak On’, ‘Lose Control’ and more.
The audience was overwhelmed by Elliott who proved she’s returned for good and who gave a heartfelt speech in accepting the 2019 Video Vanguard Award. Elliott made it her own as the first woman in hip hop to win the award.
The award is long overdue as Elliott is as creative a songwriter as a visual performance artist, interjecting surreal shapes and backgrounds in her futuristic style. She once said it was important for her to “visualize” a song and if she couldn’t see the song it likely wouldn’t become part of her repetoire.
