Missy Elliott was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday. In her acceptance speech, Elliott thanked “sisters in hip-hop” and the "godmothers" including Queen Latifah, Monie Love, Sha-Rock, Angie Stone, Roxanne Shanté, Yo-Yo, MC Lyte, and Salt-N-Pepa, “Y’all are the backs that we stand on. Y’all are the foundation.”

LIZZO had kind words for Missy at the ceremony saying, "You are the brightest star in the universe Missy. I've watched you my entire life. And I saw a superstar in you, but I've also seen myself. I'd never seen myself and you lived so boldly and so beautifully and so unapologetically and so out loud."

Ciara said when she started her career, "it was a dream to work with Missy." Their tracks "1,2, Step" and "Lose Control" are still bangers. [Pitchfork]
