Missy Elliott performs at the Alexander Wang X H&M Launch on October 16, 2014 in New York City.  

Missy Elliott's grand entrance back into the spotlight caused a frenzy on the Internet after she debuted her funkadelic visual for "WTF (Where They From)," featuring Pharrell on Thursday, Nov. 12. No stranger to the unorthodox, Misdemeanor has been playing by her own rules as early as her 1997 debut, Supa Dupa Fly, and as a producer for former acts on-the-rise like Aaliyah, 702 and SWV.
