Missy Elliot opens up about her headlining tour 

It's insane to imagine that Missy Elliott will go on her first headlining tour in 2024, even though the rap icon has been working on it for nearly three decades. In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Missy Elliot revealed that the timing couldn't be better for her upcoming tour, Out of This World: The Missy Elliott Experience, which will feature friends and longtime collaborators such as Ciara, Busta Rhymes, and even famed producer Timbaland.

The Work It rapper said, "It was the time for it. I feel like God aligned everything. Ciara has been bugging me about going on the road for, like, forever... But I knew in my head that I wasn't ready. And then I was just like, I'm ready to go. People have always wanted to see it, and I mentioned Ciara, Busta, and all of that. The energy level is going to be through the roof.”

Ciara and Rhymes both acknowledged to ET that they were planning their own tours this year, but Elliot's call changed everything. Busta said, "If I am going to really go to this place and get back into this bag, it's going to have to be because I don't really have a choice. Know what I'm saying? If I am going to be at this level of greatness, We are the ones that kind of birthed this whole freeness in the hip-hop thing, this whole courageous, colorful, and outlandish, having fun, and just bringing the imagination to life in a new way."

He then said, "She is like one of the goddesses of this particular space; I find the most comfort going in this bag with my sister and with my other sister because this is what they've been doing anyway."
