In April 2015, we made a list of five artists that need to make a comeback. Missy Elliott comes in at number one. Now our dream has finally come true with the release of her new music video “WTF.” #TBT, the video is straight out of the early 2000’s; not even Missy Elliott has aged. Her costumes are just as edgy and her dance moves just as sassy. A puppet, with an uncanny resemblance to Pharrell Williams, comes in around 1:35, along with some booty poppin’ lady puppets. Time to listen to this track about 100 times and learn every single word. It’s not like we didn’t do the same thing with “Work It.”
Nikki grew up in an imitation German town in Georgia by the name of Helen. It wasn’t until middle school that she started to get interested in the arts: painting, music, and writing. She wrote in her diary, sketched in art class and listened to regretful music. By high school, her tastes became a little more refined. She found Fiona Apple, Lou Reed and Giant Drag, and they remain her favorites in college. She was accepted to the University of Georgia in 2012 and is currently majoring in English. Upon moving to Athens from a town with more trees than people, Nikki was a bit overwhelmed. However, there is certainly no lack of inspiration in Athens, and she appreciates its love for the arts and its service as a platform.
