Missy Elliott Explains Why She Doesn't Do Anything 'Just to Fit In'

Missy Elliott looks so cool on the cover of Elle magazine’s June 2017 issue.

Here’s what the 45-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On publicity in the social media era: “One thing I won’t do is compromise. I will never do something based on what everybody else is telling me to do. And have to kick myself in the ass every night. Nah. I have to make sure that it’s right. I’ve been through so many stumbling blocks to build a legacy, so I wouldn’t want to do something just to fit in. Because I never fit in. So….”

On her iconic plastic bag suit in “The Rain”: “To me, the outfit was a way to mask my shyness behind all the chaos of the look. Although I am shy, I was never afraid to be a provocative woman. The outfit was a symbol of power. I loved the idea of feeling like a hip-hop Michelin woman. I knew I could have on a blow-up suit and still have people talking. It was bold and different. I’ve always seen myself as an innovator and a creative unlike any other.”
