She was joined at the event by Ciara and Lizzo, as well as her manager Mona Scott-Young.
Ciara paid tribute to Missy “1, 2 Step” collaborator. “We define music genres such as R&B, hip-hop, and pop. And then there’s a genre of Missy,” she said. “Like she says in her classic song, ‘We Run This’—’My style can’t be duplicated or recycled’…There is only one Missy.”
Lizzo speaks at Missy Elliott's Hollywood Walk of Fame dedication.
Lizzo took the stage while reciting her idol’s “Work It” lyrics. “You are the brightest star in the universe,” she told Missy before breaking down in tears. “I watched you my entire life and I saw a superstar in you, but I also saw myself… You lived so boldly and so beautifully and so unapologetically and so out loud. You have no idea what you have done for so many Black girls.”
