Missy Elliott To Receive Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award At The 2019 VMAs!

Great news! According to Variety, iconic entertainer Missy Elliott will receive MTV’s Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the 2019 VMAs!

“Missy’s impact on the music landscape is indelible,” said Bruce Gillmer, MTV International co-brand head and Viacom music and music talent head. “Her creative vision across production, performance and songwriting is unmatched.”

As many would agree, this is well deserved for the five-time Grammy award-winning rapper and the first female hip-hop artist to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Missy has created major hits like “Work It,” “Get Ur Freak On” and “WTF (Where They From),” and sold more than 30 million records worldwide. She is the only female rapper to have six studio albums certified platinum, Variety notes.
