Let’s be honest: Missy Elliott stole the Super Bowl halftime show last night. Her performance immediately transported us back to 1998 and reminded us that we have had a Missy Elliott-shaped gap in our hearts since she went on hiatus almost 10 years ago.
After her showstopping performance last night, Misdemeanor took to Twitter to profusely thank her fans for their continued support and outpouring of love.
Thank u all for the out pouring of love @ the SuperBowl! & @katyperry I’m humbly grateful for u inviting me to join u❤️— Missy Elliott (@MissyElliott) February 2, 2015
Twelve hours later, and Missy is still crying tears of joy.
I cried because I’ve been thru so much but I’m still here & thru the grace of God & u the fans believing in me I love y’all— Missy Elliott (@MissyElliott) February 2, 2015
She also tweeted her gratitude to the droves of celebs—Ciara, Monica, Timbaland, Lil’ Kim, Fantasia Barrino, Kerry Washington and Busta Rhymes, among others—who voiced their support
To my peers the artist who tweeted me I love u all to your kind words keep me uplifted also! Grateful!— Missy Elliott (@MissyElliott) February 2, 2015
Our fingers are crossed that this will lead to a comeback album. We’ve missed you, Missy!
