Missy Elliot is at her all-time slimmest!
It’s been a quite some time since we've had the chance to get a good glance of the music hitmaker. Showcasing her talent and weight loss Thursday night, the female rap legend performed at the Alexander Wang launch of his H&M collection at the Fort Washington Avenue Armory in New York City.
It's enlightening to see a lot of the artists we all know and love such as Fat Joe, Jennifer Hudson and now Missy Elliot slim down. It's hard to grasp how much weight she’s lost… 75 pounds! Bringing the entire audience to their feet, performing hit songs like "Get Ur Freak On," "Work It," and "Lose Control," the record producer stole the show.
After headlines raved over Missy’s private dealing with Graves disease — an autoimmune illness that affects the thyroid, she told BET just last year,
“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.”
It’s amazing to see one of the legendary Queen Emcees looking happy and healthy enough to rock the stage! Although there is no cure for Graves disease, Missy's condition has improved over the past year.
