Winning the MTV VMAs Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award was not the only thing in store for Missy Elliott this August as she also received a two-minute video message from “The King of Pop’s” sister, Janet Jackson.

BROUGHT TO TEARS

The award-winning performer was brought to tears after watching the sweet words from her friend. In the repost, Elliott shared about how she “used to” watch Jackson’s performance on television and copy it.

She also revealed the nickname that was given to her by the “Jackson 5” star, “Jack.” The video message featured Jackson in what seemed to be a dressing room while speaking kind words about Elliott.

JACKSON’S KIND WORDS

“I want to talk about how beautiful your soul is, the person that you are,” Jackson said on Instagram. “You know how much I love you, and your soul is so true and so real and your energy and your spirit beyond. I think that’s why God has given you all that he has.”

The award is the highest honor given at the event and was given to artists like Beyonce, Britney Spears, and Rihanna, among many others.

The “Together Again” singer continued to describe Elliott as a “brilliant,” “beautiful,” and “loyal” friend who always keeps it “real” both on and off-screen. Not having many friends in the industry allowed Jackson to appreciate the rapper for her friendship.

“I could count them on one hand, and you’re definitely one of them, and I thank God for him bringing us together; for you being in my life,” she added. “I love you so much, and I’m so proud of you. Congratulations!”

MAKING HISTORY

Elliott made history as the first female rapper to receive MTV’s Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award as announced by the music network earlier this month. Viacom music and music head, and MTV International co-brand head Bruce Gillmer praised Elliott’s “impact on the music landscape.”

The award is the highest honor given at the event and was given to artists like Beyonce, Britney Spears, and Rihanna, among many others. It is no doubt that this year’s winner is just as deserving of the title.
