Five-time Grammy Award-winning mega artist Missy Elliott graces the cover of ELLE Magazine June 2017 Issue looking beautiful as always. The new issue is dedicated to celebrating women in music in which Missy Elliott hands down have impacted the hell out of this culture with her standout art, dance, versatility, and genius in discovering great talent. Remember the plastic bag Missy wore in 1997 video “I Can’t Stand The Rain”? Well, she spoke about what inspired her to wear it with ELLE…
“To me, the outfit was a way to mask my shyness behind all the chaos of the look. Although I am shy, I was never afraid to be a provocative woman. The outfit was a symbol of power,” Elliott told the magazine. “I loved the idea of feeling like a hip-hop Michelin woman. I knew I could have on a blow-up suit and still have people talking. It was bold and different. I’ve always seen myself as an innovator and a creative unlike any other.”
To date, Missy hasn’t shied away from what makes her stand out from the rest with new visual “I’m Better” featuring Lamb. There could be a Missy album in the works, but we’ll just have to wait and see what the humbled-hip hop giant does next. Check out Missy Elliott on the cover of ELLE-Mag Below.
