Missy Elliott On Speaking Her Dreams Into Existence: Everything I Spoke, I've Done & That's How Powe



Missy Elliott On Speaking Her Dreams Into Existence: Everything I Spoke, I've Done & That's How Powerful The Tongue Is
Melissa Arnette Elliott, better known as Missy Elliott, is back and better than ever! On the heels of her honorary doctorate degree from Berklee College of Music, she recently discussed her 20-plus year legacy, speaking her career into existence, and her anticipated seventh album.

???LET'S GOOOO ayyyye??????Thank You @marieclairemag MAKE SURE YALL COP THIS COVER ISSUE with ME???? Stylist: @juneambrose Interview: @smashfizzle Photographer: @michaiahcarter Hair: @kellonderyck & @ogx_beauty Makeup: @themuaalex & @covergirl Manicure: @nails_by_lisalalinda Entertainment Director: @maxwelllosgar Set Design: @laurennikrooz & @themagnetagency On-set Production: @elisemc4 & @onefourthreeproductions60.

A post shared by Missy Elliott (@missymisdemeanorelliott) on Jul 15, 2019 at 5:36am PDT


She says that she's known she wanted to be in the music industry since she was in kindergarten.

"This is why you have to listen to kids. I knew what I wanted. I remember [telling my classmates], 'I'm going to be a superstar,' and the whole class would bust out laughing...I wonder, do those kids remember me? Because I remember all of them. I have a picture, and I remember their names. They would laugh because it just seemed impossible."

Missy shares that her family suggested she pursue a more practical career after years of pursuing music.

"Trust me, I was broke. And my family would be like, 'You better find something to do.' They told me to go in the Army. I'm like, 'I'm too fat to go in the Army. Where I am running to?' Everything just seemed so impossible at the time because we didn't have the technology to be able to reach out and put your stuff online and people get a chance to see it. So you have to be at the right place at the right time."



Missy Elliott credits the power of the tongue for bringing her dreams to fruition.

"...everything I spoke, I've done. And that's how powerful the tongue is. I used to sit in the house and act like I was having conversations with Janet and Michael and Madonna and whoever. I then would go and say my thank yous for award shows that I hadn't made it to yet. I had speeches, and I would be in the mirror thanking my mama."



She continued, detailing that she declared she would buy her mother a lavish home.

"I told my mother, 'I'm going to buy you a house, and I'm going to buy you an elevator incase your legs start hurting.' And she would laugh and be like, 'All right, okay.' But when I got my first check, I didn't even buy myself a house first. I bought my mother a house. Put a Bible in the soil and built it from the ground up."

The hip-hop and R&B veteran says her friends encouraged her to make her upcoming seventh album.

"I was just going, going, going, [and] it wasn't resonating what was happening. After I did the Super Bowl, my friends called me and they are like, 'So, what you about to do?' I'm here mopping my floor, and I got to wash the dogs. And they are like, 'What? You just finished doing the Super Bowl.' And the same thing happened...I was in the car with Michelle Obama, and they called me like, 'Girl, we got to celebrate; that's huge!' And I'm like, 'I'm watching a movie on Netflix.' Now that I've had a chance to slow down, I look back at stuff, and I look back at my 'She's a Bitch' video, and at the time I didn't even think about it. But I look at it now and I'm like, 'This is still so many years ahead.'"



While she and the Super Friends (Timbaland, Tweet, Ginuwine, Magoo, and others) were in the "Basement" - a development camp led by Jodeci's Devante Swing - they weren't permitted to listen to the radio or watch TV to create their own sound.

"When we were up in Rochester, we didn't listen to the radio, we didn't watch videos, so we didn't hear nor see. We created a sound that we didn't even know we were creating. It's just that we didn't know what was hot, so we just was creating music. I wish I could get back to that space of not seeing or hearing, because when you see and hear, you start to concentrate, and then you are afraid to try something new because it don't sound like anything else."



She shares what she wants her legacy to be.

"Whenever God decides to call, I want to have that legacy of being able, not just music or videos that people thought were great. Mary [J. Blige], Faith [Evans], Puff [Sean Combs], all of them taught me so many things. I want to be that person that people say, 'Hey, Missy said she did it like this.' If a billionaire told me they read 400 books to become a billionaire, I'm going, 'Where is the Barnes & Noble at? Let me get 400 books.' And just giving wisdom, because that blessing don't come for you, like my grandma said, to keep it for yourself. It is to share. And hopefully I have done that. I do want to make the generation behind feel like, don't be afraid, because we are in a time where so many people can be artists. Now you can just post up, and if it gets to the right person, then it's just viral. I want to be able to encourage those who don't go viral. A lot of people out there that have 452 or 100 followers may be talented. I want them to not feel like they have to do what everybody else is doing to gain that attention. Just be you. It's going to catch hold somewhere."

Sweet!

Erica Mena And 'Love & Hip Hop Miami's' Gabrielle Davis Continue To Hurl Insults After Fallout Over

Erica Mena, Gabrielle Davis

Erica Mena And 'Love & Hip Hop Miami's' Gabrielle Davis Continue To Hurl Insults After Fallout Over Safaree Samuels
Erica Mena and Safaree Samuels are back together after Gabrielle Davis provided receipts that Samuels was allegedly cheating on Mena with Davis recently.

But the drama between Mena and Davis who appeared in season 1 of VH1's Love & Hip Hop Miami still seem to be going strong.

It appears to have started when Mena tweeted Sunday,

"You notice it's always the super bitter butt hurt females most of the time that claim they don't wanna get married."

Davis seemed to catch wind of the tweet and had a response just hours later.

"Bitter bothered b****es always quick to point a finger  like I'm over here minding my business"

"I'm not willing to marry someone who is willing to marry anyone."


She added,

"....like watching two leftovers trying to make a whole meal"

Mena clarified her original tweet and wrote,

"I actually tweeted this off having conversations with females who claim this. You clearly see how hurt and bitter they are. It's an instant observation I got and I know it's a common one. Sad because deep down you know they don't really mean it."

Mena then mentioned Davis and said,

"It's probably best you be more concern on getting your green card back after getting caught smuggling than you are about me or what I tweet. Being homeless and alone in Jamaica has to suck. I'm sure your brain damaged doesn't help either."

She added,

"You don't have a pot to piss in but enjoys watching me and mine."

She also retweeted a fan who chimed in.

She wrapped it up with,


"Point proven! It's the bitter and butt hurt females who feel exactly what I said they do."

Their issues started after Davis not only claimed she was Safaree's sidechick during his engagement to Mena, but provided alleged text messages.



Despite the screenshots, Mena and Samuels are moving forward with plans to wed this year.

What do you think about the ladies still going back and forth? Tell us in the comments!

It's Monday!... and we lost our first tooth! Feeling real good ????? #Monday #Dance P.s. He dressed himself too. It's a vibe:) ??

A post shared by Ciara (@ciara) on Jul 15, 2019 at 11:21am PDT


After posting Baby Future's energetic dance moves, husband to Ciara and NFL star, Russell Wilson took to her comments to give some encouraging words to his step son's monumental moment. Russell writes,

"He was so, so pumped to lose that first tooth."

Papa Russ continues,

"The Best! Haha, dancing machine."

Not only is Baby Future an amazing dancer, Russell is making sure his quarterback skills are on point as well. In a recent post, Papa Russ can be seen coaching Baby Future with the pig skin. The Seattle Seahawk quarterback says Baby Future wants to be just like his step father when he is older.

"I'm gunna play QB for the Seahawks like you one day!" - Future

Papa Russ adds when Baby Future is ready, he can have his spot on the team.

"I'll Coach you now & in 15 years you can replace me." - Papa Russ

As previously reported, Ciara opened up last month on how much Russell has treated his step son like his own, pointing out how Russell's "energy" with him "felt right."

"Whenever he would think about me, he would think about my son. And to love me is to love my son. We come together,  it's dope, it's a different level of love. It has been a very special journey for my husband and I because we are a blended family, it does take time."

If Russell gets his way, their family will get even bigger.

 "If you would ask Russell, we have, like, five more kids to make."

Actress Lashana Lynch Is Allegedly The New 007!, Will Make History As 1st African American & 1st Fem

Lashana Lynch

Actress Lashana Lynch Is Allegedly The New 007!, Will Make History As 1st African-American & 1st Female To Take On The Role
Lashana Lynch is reportedly the new 007! If true, this will make Lynch not only the first African-American, but the first female to be cast in the role.

Lynch will make her debut in an upcoming Bond film, where the current 007, actor Daniel Craig will pass the torch to her as James Bond.



In the movie, Lynch arrives as anew secret agent after Bond announces his retirement. But the movie gets a shakeup when he's asked to report back to assist with a new problem. One source close to the movie said,

"There is a pivotal scene at the start of the film where M says 'Come in 007', and in walks Lashana who is black, beautiful and a woman. It's a popcorn-dropping moment. Bond is still Bond, but he's been replaced as 007 by this stunning woman."

They added that Bond is

"sexually attracted to the new female 007 and tries his usual seduction tricks,"

but is

"baffled when they don't work."

The source continued and said this is a major moment for women during the #MeToo era.

"This is a Bond for the modern era who will appeal to a younger generation while sticking true to what we all expect in a Bond film. There are spectacular chase sequences and fights, and Bond is still Bond but he's having to learn to deal with the world of #MeToo."

Lynch hasn't confirmed the news, but she's shared footage and photos from the set.

Vivica Fox Says NeNe Leakes Is The 'Real Housewives' Star Who 'Makes Mistakes & Is Constantly Wrong'

Vivica Fox, NeNe Leakes

Vivica Fox Says NeNe Leakes Is The 'Real Housewives' Star Who 'Makes Mistakes & Is Constantly Wrong'
Vivica Fox cringed when she called out NeNe Leakes on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live Sunday. When asked if there was a member of The Real Housewives franchise who

"constantly makes mistakes,"

Fox offered up her answer, which wasn't who many people, including host Andy Cohen, thought it would be.

She stated,

"Who makes mistakes and is constantly wrong? I'm gonna get in trouble... NeNe. Just some of the show... some of the things that I've seen. I've been kind of like, 'Wow, why did that happen?' And to see friendships fractured..."

She reassured Leakes, 

"NeNe I love you. I do girl."



As for Leakes' behavior, she ended the season feuding with most of the cast, who she was actually friends with when the season began.





Leakes hasn't responded to Fox's comments, at least not publicly. But many seemed to be convinced that Fox would say Kenya Moore, considering the two ladies have had major issues with each other since 2015.

Young Thug shared his thoughts on Lil Nas X coming out as gay. Young Thug compared the press Lil Nas X has gotten over his sexual orientation to the criticism he's received over his unique wardrobe choices.

"I feel like... He probably shouldn't have told the world. He shouldn't have told the world because it's like these days, it's just all judgment. Motherf***ers is judging. It ain't even about the music no more. Once you found he was gay everybody... Soon as the song come on now, everybody like... 'This gay a*8 n***a. N***as don't even care to listen to the song no more."

Young Thug

He added,

"Yeah. But it's just to like, certain people. You know what I'm saying? I just feel like he young and it's like backlash can come behind anything. So it's like... it wasn't a bad idea, it was most definitely the best time to do it [during Pride month]. That was a G's move. But it's like, he young and I know what he going to be dealing with in his mind. I dealt with this before. So I was like f***. He should have never said that. Never should have told them."

As for him, he said he's hardly ever bothered by the criticism that comes toward him.

See his comments at the 14:45 mark.



Lil Nas X came out on the last day of Pride month, June 30.

He wrote,

"some of y'all already know, some of y'all don't care, some of y'all not gone fwm no more. but before this month ends i want y'all to listen closely to c7osure"

— nope (@LilNasX) June 30, 2019

In that song he says,

"True say, I want and I need/ To let go, use my time to be free/ It's like it's always what you like/ It's always what you like/ Why it's always what you like?/ It's always what you like, uh"

"Pack my past up in the back, oh, let my future take ahold / This is what I gotta do, can't be regrettin' when I'm old"
