Skinny Minny Missy.
“Just got off stage thanks @AlexanderWangNY and @hmusa for having me perform I enjoyed ..”
With friends Solange Knowles, Mary J Blige and Justin Theroux in the building, Missy blessed the stage with a remixed/newer version of “Work it” –a kind of Missy Elliott rendition of the old Right Said Fred runway model anthem “I’m Too Sexy,” perfect for the atmosphere; Missy Elliott was right in her element-looking just that and out of this world amazing!
Although over the past few years, Elliott has taken a chill pill, it certainly isn’t because she herself didn’t have any work or will.
“I couldn’t write, I couldn’t even hold a pen,” said Missy, who publicly revealed her illness in 2011.
It wasn’t until one day, while driving, her leg started jumping…She took her foot to press the brake and barely could—her normal routine bodily functions stopped her right there in her tracks-that’s when she knew something was terribly wrong.
In popular culture, we’ve only heard of the condition one time perhaps, back when 1992 Olympic runner Gail Devers suffered from the autoimmune disease which attacks the thyroid gland and as a result, produces an excessive amount of thyroid hormones which affects the body’s metabolic rate/temperature.
Although there still is no cure for it, the symptoms (which are weight loss, muscle weakness, hand tremors, insomnia, and excessive sweating), can be treated.
As yet, we do not know if Missy’s performance was the catalyst for more to come, but she has been grooming and promoting her artist Sharaya to follow footsteps for success.
Either way, Missy is alive, well, and living: vicariously…period.
