I might could possibly be possibly be maybe considered a huge Missy Elliott fan. Aside from the fact that the vast majority of my undergrad experience was soundtracked by her music (and Lil’ Jon, but that’s another story), she’s just a major pioneer in music who has done great things with great women and has always lifted others up whenever she could. It reflects in her interviews, it reflects in her tweets, and it reflects in her music.


So, when this picture did the cha-cha slide down my feed reader, I flipped out. Look at Missy!

Missy – yes, talking about her like we’re BFFs – slayed the stage at the Alexander Wang x H&M event here in NYC, and I have to admit…I don’t know what’s more exciting: seeing Missy on the stage again, or the hope that she might drop another album…

…let me stop.

Apparently, The Daily Mail reported that Missy had lost 70lbs, but she took to twitter, clearing the air:

YAAAASSS MISSY! DO IT! I’m cheering for you!

And I’m buying that hat, too!
