CELEBRITY Missy elliott

Missy Elliott has been called one of the most significant female artists in contemporary music history, but this year she's back for the crown. 

The five-time Grammy winner recently became the first female rapper to be awarded the Michael Jackson Vanguard award at the 2019 VMAs, and she delivered an absolutely legendary performance that spanned two decades of her work. Artists including Justin Timberlake, Lizzo, Timbaland, Lil' Kim, Janet Jackson, Ciara, Pharrell, and more gave testimonials celebrating Missy "Misdemeanor," and she reclaimed her legacy once more. 

The Songwriters Hall of Fame called her “a groundbreaking solo superstar, pioneering songwriter-producer, and across-the-board cultural icon,” and to many she's long been a feminist hero too. From outrageous outfits to gasp-worthy lyrics, check out this gallery to see her most iconic moments.
