Missy Elliot will be honored at this year’s MTV Music Awards and there’s no denying that she’s earned the recognition. MTV announced yesterday that Missy will be the recipient of the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award – a prestigious honor given to the industry’s groundbreaking artists. And Missy is undeniably one of them.
The rapper/producer/songwriter and all-around entertainer returns to the VMA stage for her first performance in SIXTEEN years! And best believe she will have be putting on one helluva show.
