It’s been a while since we’ve gotten a good look at Missy Elliott, but last night the semi-reclusive MC rocked the stage at the Fort Washington Avenue Armory in New York City to celebrate the launch of H&M’s Alexander Wang collaboration.
We can’t get over how much weight she’s lost!
Missy performed her hits “Get Ur Freak On,” “Work It,” and “Lose Control,” which brought everyone to their feet.
She caught up with Solange backstage, who posted the above photo along with the caption:
Been knowing this Queen since I was yay high. And what an honor. Music Royalty. The Innovative Legend. We all learned from this one…..
Now, what do we have to do to get a proper music release from Missy? We’ve been waiting too long. It was revealed a few years ago that Missy’s been privately dealing with Graves disease — an autoimmune illness that affects the thyroid.
Last year she told BET,
“I’m 30 pounds (13.6 kilograms) lighter because I’ve been exercising,” she continued. “My thyroid is functioning, so I haven’t had to take medication in about nine months. (But) you live with it for the rest of your life.”
We’re glad to see Missy looking happy and healthy enough to rock the stage!
