First, there was the Nicki Minaj VMA feud. Then came Grace Jones, who called Miley Cyrus (and Nicki) “the status quo.” Now, it seems like rap icon Missy Elliott might have dropped a bit of shade on Miley in her comeback song.
Missy’s first video in seven years, “WTF (Where They From),” features Pharrell Williams. It opens with a few lyrics that seem like they could be aimed at the controversial VMAs host.
“The dance that you doing is dumb / How they do where you from / Stickin’ out your tongue girl / But you know you’re too young / A bunch of girls do it and the shit looks fun / That’s how they do it where we from.”
The 44 year-old rapper could be taking aim at the 22 year-old singer, as Miley is well known for twerking and constantly sticking out her tongue. The lyrics not only suggest Missy may be going after her onstage antics, but that she may have a problem with Miley’s cultural appropriation.
Check out the music video below.
Do you think this could be Missy’s way of asking Miley “what’s good?”
