Missy Elliott Surprises Fan Who Went Viral for Covering ''Work It''

Missy Elliott Surprises Fan Who Went Viral for Covering ''Work It''

The American rapper made a guest appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday to give superfan Mary Halsey the surprise of a lifetime.

Over the summer, Mary went viral with a karaoke version of the hip-hop track, and when Missy spotted the footage, she posted the video to social media, calling Mary her "funky white sister".

United Kingdom accuses Russian Federation of 'lies' after Putin's Skripal poisoning denial
Little is known about their identity, and British police say they believe the names in their passports may be pseudonyms. The UK accused two men of attempting to assassinate a former Russian agent in England with military-grade nerve agent.


Not long after, host Ellen DeGeneres asked her to perform her signature karaoke song, and midway through, Elliott crashed the performance to rap with her "sister". She revealed that she's been performing the song during karaoke performances since 2003.

"It was a shock, I never expected this", said Halsey about going viral and getting a response from Missy for the original video. "When she first said, 'Missy's funky white sister, ' I'm like, 'Who is this?!'" said Missy. "Everybody wants to hear it". Halfway through her incredible performance, Missy Elliott joined in, completely surprising Halsey. During the interview, she said of one day meeting Elliott, "I see it in my future". Though Halsey was starstruck, she quickly regained her composure and finished the song with Elliott's arm around her.

USA health officials today said teenage use of e-cigarette has reached "epidemic" levels and are calling on the industry to address the problem.


The 58-year-old brandished a shofar and, given the song's explicit subject matter, got about as raunchy as a daytime network TV broadcast will allow. I thought it was just the most unbelievable thing.

Later, Halsey got a gift from the Ellen show: a rhinestone-encrusted jacket that read "Missy's funky white sister" on the back.
