Due to health struggles in the past few years, there’s been much less Missy Elliott music than we would like. But last fall she released the instant-classic “WTF (Where They From),” and she’s been making more public appearances. Thank God.
Over the course of her legendary career, Missy has, in addition to releasing countless bangers, remained an inspirational figure. Case in point? This tweet.
Missy Elliott has always, in both songs and her public persona, advocated for self-love. Even when she didn’t fit a bullsh*t traditional mold, Missy’s lyrics told the world that she was confident, that she was strong, and that she was sexy as hell. And guess what? She wants you to feel the same for yourself.
