Giving her long history in the music industry and with lots of nominees and awards won, Missy Elliot Video Vanguard honour is well deserving
“Beginning with her first-ever vid, for 1997’s “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)” — a.k.a. the one where she made blow-up trash bags chic — the singer/rapper/producer has been responsible for some of the most audacious looks, most fly choreography, and wildest visual effects were seen onscreen. That includes the afrofuturistic “She’s A Bitch,” the funky-fresh “Gossip Folks,” and the absolutely legendary “Work It.”
“Elliott has a long, prosperous history with the VMAs — she’s won seven Moon Person trophies, including Video of the Year in 2003 for “Work It” and Best Hip-Hop Video in 2005 for “Lose Control.” She’s also hit the VMA stage three times before, including a medley of “Get Ur Freak On” and “One Minute Man” in 2001, and an appearance in 2006 during which she recreated her “The Rain” look (Jeep, blow-up suit, and all) in tribute to longtime collaborator Hype Williams, who received that year’s Vanguard Award.” – MTV
