Missy Elliott was the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award recipient at this year’s, VMA’s but Right On! Digital couldn’t resist congratulating her once again on her phenomenal achievements and showing her love for her contributions to the music industry.
Elliott’s long-time manager, Mona Scott-Young, along with nightlife entrepreneur Unik Ernest curated the star-studded event which hosted an impressive list of guests: Queen Latifah, Cardi B, Lizzo, Lil’ Kim, Oscar winner Regina King, tennis star Novak Djokovic, Victoria’s Secret model Adriana Lima, Ashlyn Harris and Ali Krieger (world champion US Women’s soccer team), Ice-T and Coco, Blac Chyna, Lil’ Mama, Dave East, Victor Cruz, Naturi Naughton, Winnie Harlow and Myx Fusions CEO Peter Reaske were among the elite who came out to celebrate with Elliott. Celebrity DJ Mary Mac 5 Star kept the energy high as guests partied into the wee hours.
“We wanted to celebrate Missy, and honor her success and contributions to the culture, so where better to do that than a place inspired by her genius and creativity,” says Scott-Young. “Words can’t express how proud I am of Missy. She is an icon and truly deserves to be celebrated.”
The event was held at “The Museum of Missy Elliott,” an interactive pop-up playground that allowed guests to engage in the most memorable and iconic moments from Elliott’s music videos. The concept boasted a live hologram experience where guests could record a gif of themselves performing to Elliott’s hit classic “The Rain,” while virtually wearing her signature inflated trash bag. The immersive activation was powered by VNTANA.
