"We just let the consumers mind create what they wanted."
Missy Elliott revealed in a tweet on Tuesday morning (Jan. 5) that Tweet's 2002 debut single, "Oops (Oh My)," is not what you think it is.
The song from Tweet's debut album, Southern Hummingbird, features guest vocals from Missy, who co-wrote the Timbaland-produced tune with Tweet. And while most of us have been under the mistaken impression that it was about self-love for the past 19 years, Missy is here to say, oops, we got it totally wrong.
"#Funfact this song was never bout Masturbation it was always about her appreciating her Dark Skin (Self Love)when she looked in the mirror it was the listeners that thought it was about sex & just ran with it...," Missy said in reaction to an earlier tweet from a fan who wrote, "Tweet said Masturbation but make it a Bop."
