J.Lo Agrees: Missy Elliott Should Receive MTV's Video Vanguard Award

Missy isn't the only recipient whose award is long overdue.

Published August 1st

It’s been announced that Jennifer Lopez will be awarded the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the 2018 MTV VMA’s. However, the Bronx legend name-dropped who she’d love to see win in the forthcoming years.

In a Facebook Livestream, at the 9:30 mark, Sway asked her about her 2019 Vanguard choices, and while contemplating, J.Lo asked fans for help since her mental list was too long. Ultimately, she stated that Lady Gaga and running fan-favorite, Missy Elliott are her top choices to win the awards.

  1. “Missy’s a great one ‘cause her videos were also so cutting-edge,” J.Lo proclaims, and Sway cosigned the sentiment by calling Missy’s videos 'revolutionary'

    Missy Elliott took to Twitter to show her gratitude.

  2. Quite frankly, it’s long overdue for Misdemeanor to have this award, especially with this gem in her catalog

    Aside from the obvious, here’s a few other icons who should be Vanguard Award recipients.
