Missy Elliott Makes Rare Appearance During Pharrell’s 2014 BET Awards Performance
When Pharrell Williams took the stage to open the 2014 BET Awards with a collegiate-themed performance of “Come Get It Bae,” the last thing we expected was for Missy Elliott to emerge and start spitting rhymes from her 2003 hit “Pass the Dutch” — but that’s exactly what happened!
Even though Miley Cyrus is the one featured on Pharrell’s “Come Get It Bae,” it was Missy — who turns 43 on July 1 — who emerged mid-song to accompany the 41-year-old during his opening number. If you’ve been wondering what happened to Missy during the past decade, you’ll definitely want to check this out!
Not only was Pharrell appreciative of Missy’s lyrical assistance when he introduced her, but the singer took to Twitter to thank Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliott, writing: “Love you @MissyElliott. Thank you for performing with me. #TheEmpress #Virginia #BaeUniversity #BETAwards @BET.”
And if you think that’s adorable, just wait until you hear what Missy had to say in response! “I want to Thank my brother @Pharrell for believing in me and showing me so much love on his set! May God continue to bless u!,” the rapper tweeted, adding, “Thank u @BET for having me I'm humbly grateful for the love that was shown to me and thanks again to my fam @Pharrell.”
If this teaches us anything, it’s that we need more Missy.
