Missy Elliott Gets Emotional While Accepting Innovator Award At Billboard's Women In Music Event

Published by Huffington Post on Sat, 12 Dec 2015

Missy Elliott shed some tears while accepting the Innovator of the Year award at the 2015 Billboard Women in Music event at Cipriani 42nd Street in New York City Friday. The Huffington Post was on hand at the ceremony and witnessed the "WTF (Where They From)" singer get emotional after Ciara's touching tribute to her. "I stand here for all the women who've been told, 'You don't fit the mold, you're not good enough, you won't make it' ... Look at me, I'm here," she said in her acceptance speech, apologizing for being "such a mush-head." Thank u @ciara for such kind words during #WomenInMusic I tried not to cry but I was very humbled & grateful ''u much sis! Missy Elliott (@MissyElliott) December 11, 2015 .@FifthHarmony and @Ciara praising @MissyElliott: "There's no one like her." #WomenInMusic pic.twitter.com/wtX5cvqUYm billboard (@billboard) December 11, 2015"I want y'all to know to continue to be creative and don't be scared to take risks," Elliott continued. "Being a woman in this industry, for me -- as an artist, a writer, a producer -- I've had my ups and downs and there's times when I wanted to give up, but," she added through tears,"God had another plan for me and if it weren't for Him, I wouldn't be standing here." Elliott gave some shoutouts to her many collaborators including Timbaland, Pharrell Williams, Magoo and Janet Jackson and ended her speech by honoring her late friend Aaliyah."I hope you're looking down and you're proud of me," she said. "I miss you much." Before she took to the stage, dancers clad in Adidas tracksuits performed a routine to a medley of Missy's hits, including"Lose Control," "Work It" and "WTF." Billboard's Women in Music show will air Dec. 18 on Lifetime at 8 p.m. ET.Also on HuffPost: -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.
