Missy Elliot

Sorry for the posts delay. I'm having technical issues with AT&T U-verse again...

A loyal reader writes in to share his/her concern about rapper Missy Elliot's health and well-being. Missy hasn't been looking herself lately.

The 46-year-old rap legend posted this image on her Instagram account on Monday. It isn't clear if she applied a filter to the image.

As you know, Missy announced she has hyperthyroidism, which accounts for her dramatic weight loss. But there's more.

Missy looks like she's gone under the knife once too often. Isn't it sad when women refuse to age gracefully and/or act their age?

R. Robins writes:

"Missy Elliot... She has been looking great lately.... a little too great. I know she had some thyroid problem before which made her lose weight but she looks totally different now... Surgery or just actually more healthy now. What do you guys think?"

    Most of the time someone has something to say about another person's successful surgery, it's jealousy. Plastic surgery is now very accessible and affordable so feel free to fix whatever needs fixing on your body. Just avoid booty implants.

    Missy looks great.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    I think she looks good...tis all I got.. with so many stars altering reality..she looks good.

  • kennedy220

    I think she looks great big or small.... I'd need to see more pics to know if she's been under the knife....I take it back I don't care what one does to their body as long as it isn't hurting me...you go missy

  • Naomi

    She looks the same to me....her eyes just look bigger now lol

  • WutizstillHERE!

    I think she looks good.. so I agree. It becomes a tragedy when they go ballistic with it and Michael Jackson themselves,,,

  • Vonn

    Hee hee hee hee how

  • RaginB

    So what if she has or hasn’t?????

  • Pitty Patty

    Missy needs a movie about her life. She's a living legend....

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Missy will always be one of my fave! She was a boss who back then stood against the stereotypes of what women in rap should be..Love her and Queen Teeef for that..tis all

  • RaginB

    And don’t let LIFETIME do it.?????

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Missy ... ???

  • http://citygirlzen.blogspot.com/ missarewa

    Some people just don't know when to stop and it's indicative of deeper issues. I keep it real cuz I'm not above getting a little lipo after I drop these babies. Just a little

  • WutizstillHERE!

    ROFL!!!! Please dont!

  • Pitty Patty

    BET seems to do bio movies well. They should look into this. The casting would have to be perfect. Especially for whoever they choose to play Aaliyah.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I didn't know that lesbians had plastic surgery.
    If you're sick, Missy get well and make new music asap.
    Get, get,get your freak on!!!

  • FukkFolks2018

    I was literally in a Group chat not even 12 years ago saying how dope she looks.

    I will have 3 of whatever in the hell Melissa is currently drinking that has her 47 year old ass out in these streets looking like this. Whatever is in them Hampton Roads waters having her and Pharrell out here on aging backwards, Benjamin Buttons mode? I need it. ASAp'dedly.

    7-5-7 stand the hell on up.


  • Logan Roberts

    I need to see more pictures first. And sometimes celebrities & normal people do too much with plastic surgery.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I dont think she has done anything other than lose weight and some makeup magic. She has been looking like this for years (nose, face slenderness) but is not really in the spotlight like that anymore so everyone else is just noticing. If she did something it was years back. Like 3-4 years plus.

  • Pitty Patty

    I thought I read somewhere she had crohn's disease.....

  • FukkFolks2018

    Graves disease. Makes her iBawls big and few other things but thats the big symptom

  • Quitedeliteful

    Isn’t it sad when women refuse to age gracefully and/or act their age?
    Women can't 'age gracefully.' Look how RiRi was dragged in the MET Gala post -- the woman is only 30 and folks already saying she's fat and old looking... smh...

  • Quitedeliteful


  • Quitedeliteful

    Missy E looks great! Whatever she's doing is working for her...

  • Sid

    Missy can do no wrong in my eyes

  • free

    AT&T UVerse SUCKS! the technician told me it has something to do with a poor connection with apple products. i'm like whaaa???

  • Pitty Patty

    Ahhh, thanks for the correction....

  • SpillyNillie

    Missy looks the same, just thinner. I don't think she's been under the knife-
    dramatic weight loss will have you looking...well...knifed.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I hate them fukkas. Back when I was 100% homebased...bc our ampitheater which is literally one of my next door neighbors was powered by and at one time NAMED after Time Warner...my services would lock up for HOURS at a time on show days. Which in the summer is EVERY DAMN DAY almost. Internet, phone, and TV. I was told they didnt have the bandwith to essentially overpower the Time Warner signals which to power everything was needed more on the days of shows. I was FORCED to go back to TWC/now Spectrum bc of this. Why the hell yall offering ATT/Uverse in this area PERIOD then?

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    That doesn't read as "concern" ...but whatever. Women are always judged on looks, especially in the entertainment industry. If she felt the need for a 'tune-up' due to age (or ailment), let Missy live. At least she's not out here looking like a centaur or a blowfish, Lol!

  • SpillyNillie

    47 you say? Yeah she looks great for her age! Keep telling people you look as young as you feel...

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    You said "these" ....God bless you and the BABIES, Lol!?

  • FukkFolks2018

    her bday is in July. Almost 47 years young.

  • Rayne

    Her face is still beautiful.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    ...and to that I say, Bish Where????!!!

  • http://citygirlzen.blogspot.com/ missarewa

    Amen. Thank you so much. There's one on the way and hoping to have one immediately after if God wills.

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    Well bless your heart, and happy upcoming Mothers Day to you!

  • SweetTEE

    Pause... we not gone do this w her. She has the same disease that wendy williams has that made her eyes bulge. Also why she fell bck from music. Looks like a snapchap filter too.

  • http://citygirlzen.blogspot.com/ missarewa

    Thank you!!

  • Fire & Ice

    I'd rather this healthy looking version, than an obesse, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, having woman.

  • Guest

    So what! Missy you look great!

  • countrygal

    Anybody that loses that much weight is going to look different in the face. We’re used to big gul Missy. Not slim trimmy Missy

  • stav

    Getting a nip or tuck here or there does not equate one not acting their age! As long as the procedure is done well and is tasteful who cares? It's their money ...do what makes you happy!

  • Toni Toni Toni

    I love Missy E! She can DO no wrong. mad talented and a very upbeat and positive individual.

    Her make up Artist or her make up is on point. but you can clearly see this is a SNAP CHAT FILTER. So many people have been using this one. Ppl eyes been looking buggy and big as hell with eye lashes. She doesn't' need a FILTER though. Her Make up be SLAYED TO DA GAWDS! YASS!

    I am aware her eyes bulge due to her illness she announced a few years back.

  • nomika brown

    I love Missy she looks good to me as long as she is healthy

  • Vegas1989

    That's a lie! in my *Maury Voice* Give me that technician name and badge number and I'm going to see if I can get you discounted services....I had to pull a trick under my sleeves when the Charter technician left my house and nothing was working...I called them back and told them to tell that little raggedy technician to bring me my money order back and ALL the equipment will be in the front yard and I don't care if the sprinklers come on and if it get wet or damage it is not my fault. I have a sign in my front yard....Long story short I got all the channels for $56.00 for a least 8 years until they switch to Verizon now Frontier.,

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    She has Graves disease

  • Marlika

    R. Robins sounds like a loser with too much time on their hands and needs to get a life!! That’s what I think! Let Missy live!??

  • justlooking

    she looks fine to me. Folks ain't got shit else to do but drag folks. Have folks submit a side by side of them and the person they trashing.


  • justlooking

    HEY Fancy. How you doing.

    Girl I was walking the other day...I was on walking trail on Sunday and saw a big puff of smoke at the BWI and come to find out a truck hit a aeroplane.

    Random thought....


  • KcoolMuziq

    Yes she does! Plus it hit her hard. I think she looks AMAZING and has aged gracefully despite the circumstances. If she has had work done SO WHAT! It's NO black females or females period in the industry that hasn't had some kind of work done on their face or body. WHO CARES.

    As I've said here before Missy is a triple threat. She is a VERY gifted black woman and set trends as a entertainer that NO ONE else has done.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker


  • BadAss Will

    Damn u got your fans reaching too... Really that fan must be real unhappy and fat. Missy smile all the time and if her face was all wrinkles yall will complain and say she need surgery smh.. can't win with you people. I say do what makes you happy! Lil Kim is a happy Chinese Woman.?

  • Alicia.Ashe

    I was just on her Instagram and she looks fine to me.

  • TheOwley

    So talented. All that is left is absolute trash.

  • BingBangBoom

    She looks the same to me. Sounds like you thought Missy and Gabourey Sidibe was the same person. Nope not All blacks look alike.

  • mona q

    She looks like Missy but with a filter...

  • Kemi

    Love Missy!! She’s battling an immune disorder. Please let her be!!

  • Strip Club Veteran

    Obesity is the 90's hyperthyroidism is in the 2000's. Sure.

  • i troll it like i see it

    I switched from Time Warner Cable, to AT&T U Verse, and had to switch right back. Hated their service. Terrible customer service, they charged me a fee even after I discontinued service, and had a representative verify I had paid, and had settled up my owed payment. I tried to fight it, they actually persisted with their attorneys, reported to credit bureaus and I had to pay those bastards so I could move on with my life peacefully.

  • i troll it like i see it

    I agree, weight loss will make you look different, even a few pounds lost makes a difference. Shes just slender now and folks aren't used to it.

  • KJBibleOnSlaveShips

    another beautiful black queen!!!!

  • i troll it like i see it

    I love her too.

  • itsjismemelly

    she looks good she had a couple of health issues and she handled them accordingly

  • Connie


  • Connie

    I say do what makes you happy! Lil Kim is a happy Chinese Woman.?
    I snickered real hard.

  • Trace da Ace

    I love Missy...I miss her so much in this music game...her songs always got me shaking a tail feather.....I pray that her health is going great....so people can stop assuming the worst....

  • Shawty

    She looks younger that's all. Good diet and exercise will do that. She has her hair in a kiddie style as well. She looks great to me.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    She good. Can she shine?! ZAMN!

  • IAmLawlessBrooks

    She isn't well she lost the weight because of the high blood pressure to. Fuck it she looks good people need to mind their business

  • Bossy704

    Her eyes look different like an anime character but an overactive thyroid makes your eyes bug out. As for plastic surgery - she had to do something with all that loose skin. Intentional or not - she has changed the shape of her face.

  • NYTimes#1Bestseller

    Missy is LEGENDARY

  • Bambi

    I think she looks wonderful as someone with high blood pressure I know the importance all too well of losing weight for the sake of your health.

  • datjerk

    Maybe shes just taking care of herself. That's a thing too.

  • Bonita

    Missy I believe. Wendy . . . I need to see her medical records, because I believe she has something else. She has a mainstream image to protect. A person can tell you they have whatever they want you to believe, but it doesn't make it true.

  • SumthinSweeter

    she looks fine. ppl always reaching.

  • Blue

    Only news here is that AT&T U-Verse ain't working right.

  • Stan4NoOne

    Clearly a filter has been applied... #SNAPCHAT

  • Dystaney Kimble

    I hope all is well with missy but she looks beautiful ! Surgery or not ... health issues or not , gorgeous . I mean I didn't believe that was her . Especially with the half up , half down look .

  • Kayke

    She looks like a skinny Missy. I don't see any changes in her face.

  • Kayke

    Losing fat out of your face will also change the shape.

  • free

    i literally have to put my iphone and ipad on airplane mode to make the internet go faster. i honestly think it switches to my cellular service on the slick DESPITE me being only feet away from the router. i may still even have dude's name. my cell and work are apple so i can't test it on a galaxy. my computers work fine and the tv streaming too but that's after i had to upgrade and i shouldn't have had to.

  • Lainy Damone

    She look fine why didn't you post the video that went with this photo she is taking an laughing with skinny timberland , oh wait is he sick too??? Why cant ppl just feel healthy without it being a thing

  • Shira Harding-James

    I follow her on IG and she looks normal. No surgery, just a lot of make-up and wigs

  • Dee Moe

    Missy has Crohn's Disease

  • Guess Who

    I thought Graves Disease

  • mzwhang90210

    I think that's an app.

  • Dee Moe

    sorry you're right

  • Stacey J

    Why is Missy looking good cause for concern or criticism for not acting her age? She looks healthy and she's doing her...why the shade?

  • Mister Fantastic

    Missy, I have the early 90's on the phone for you and R. Kelly:

    They want their fashion back please!

  • Swwwaayybabbby

    Just FYI. Might want to ask Att if your connection is ip/dsl or true uverse. Ip dsl still goes through telephone line so essential still works like dsl. So if the phone line they are running it through is having issues then your internet will have issues. Att was late to the fiber internet game most connections with them aren’t real fiber, it’s bonded pairs through phone lines. I worked for them for a long time. Also might want to ask them if you are in a building that has multiple units if someone used your unit number to open up new services cause if so it will knock the current one off because that same port was pulled rona different unit and folks were lazy and didn’t have the proper unit built in for the new customer and the tech didn’t want to fight with the sales department to fix it.

  • Swwwaayybabbby

    If your account is actually setup under business any rep that you get in customer service not repair. If they aren’t in Macon, Ga, Rome,Ga, Miami,Florida or South Carolina. They can’t actually see anything but what they can sale you. So just tell them you want to speak with an actual Att rep not a vendor. Then you will actually get some help. :)

  • Carla Wahl

    The eyes may be affected through a separate, yet related disease called Graves' Ophthalmopathy. In Graves' Ophthalmopathy, the immune system targets the area surrounding eyes and may cause inflammation, redness, achiness, pink eye, eyelid retraction and bulging eyes. This maybe why she used a filter or may have had surgery. Let Missy be great!

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Those folks are called "miserable mammies". They're always the first to call someone fat and old but they're young and look a lot older than the person they're talking about. And let's see how physically fit, they look at RiRi's age. She looks good and people would talk mess about her either way. That's how you know they're miserable.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Fat or skinny, people will always have some slick shït to say about you, when they don't like you. Believe me I know.

    Missy looks good and I hope this weight lost comes from being healthy.

  • Yetunde

    She doesn’t look bad. She looks good, she looks like a teenager again.

  • GoldenGloBeS

    So they gets into shape and healthy and people wanna try to bring her down ?' This world is disturbing ! good job Missy !!!

  • Quitedeliteful

    Very true... It's like RiRi or any other woman can't be normal human beings without being called old or fat but if you do like the Kardashians and get multiple surgeries to live up to the perfect ideal of beauty then you are dragged for filth for not being natural. Either way, women can't win...

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    I totally agree. Darn it if you do and darn it if you don't.

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    Missy is always posting throwbacks on Twitter of music she produced or created. I stan for her when she does that. She has soooo many hits. And even the lesser known songs were my jam.

  • Jefferey Franklin

    Black people is our own worse enemy........always gotta bring the next man down. She is looking healthier then ever and very attractive

  • Ajavee

    Exactly some people are cruel when women become older.

  • Merkaba morris

    Our people are so gullible all these entertainers have to do is get u guys to like them and become popular and they can pull anything on y'all and they get a pass...... Missy is jus like the rest of the self hating ass celebrities that took a vow to keep her people dumb down and mind controlled ,back in the day her and Queen Latina suppose to been empowering black woman to love and embrace themselves,f last forward to 2018 both are puppets who have sold they soul experience here for fame and fortune .I have zero respect for this imposter or any of these celebrities ......why don't you understand they all are a big part of the problem they are all distractions, so the Elite can keep stealing your energy and resetting time in your mind ,wake up and learn who guys really are ...... Love and Light

  • Merkaba morris

    You erase comments Sandra ...... I said y'all fall for anything all these entertainers have to do is be popular get y'all to like them and they can sell u anything ........Missy is a self hating ass chick like the rest of Hollywood morphing into white woman ,rejecting themselves and they Black African Mother, selling they Soul experience here in this illusion by merging they energy with the entity,and taking a oath to keep the masses sleep and mind controlled.so they can keep resetting time in your mind.........Its transformation time so they have to keep u in war with yourself .......Know Thyself Love and Light

  • Merkaba morris

    This is a bullshit as sight all of y'all are controlled by the Elite if you can't express yourself freely this shouldn't be call called a blog ,I thought you were free to speak on this page They always use y'all stupid ass to plant fake stories

  • kekeb

    She looks totally different, but she's still cute

  • https://www.instagram.com/bigfine4eva Kris

    well, being an avid snapchat user, i can assure those whom are concerned, that this is a filter, making her eyes look bigger, the angle in which she took the picture is why she may/may not appear unflattering. relax. Forever a fan.

  • Jethro
