Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliott did the damn thing Monday night at the MTV VMAs! The avant-garde MC hit the stage as the 2019 Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award recipient and showed just why she should have been honored years ago.
Missy kicked things off with her latest single “Throw It Back”! Then, she did indeed throw it back, by changing costumes and recreating moments from her epic hits “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly),” “Get Ur Freak On,” “Pass That Dutch,” “Work It” (featuring an appearance from video star Alyson Stoner), and “Lose Control.” It was amazing!
And, of course, fans lost their minds while watching the whole thing go down.

Dr. #MissyElliott educatin' the masses that a hot girl summer comes in many shapes, colors, and sizes. You can shake what your mama gave ya, or you can create with what your mama gave ya. No need to box yourself in. Do both. Be great. Leave your mark. https://t.co/tcS3si1KB8
