Missy Elliott

Year: 2009

In 2003 rapper Missy Elliott addressed whispers about her dramatic weight loss in the intro to her song "Gossip Folks," which starts off with people talking in the background, "Girl, that is Missy Elliott. She lost a lot of weight. Girl, I heard she eats one cracker a day." Elliott, happy and unfazed, appeared on a 2007 episode of ABC's Extreme Makeover to offer four scholarships for a weight-loss program to underprivileged teens featured on the show.
