Missy: I'd stand on the side of the road when I was just a little girl singing on trash cans. People would roll down their windows saying, "Isn't she cute?". I had a vivid imagination. I always pretended it was some big stage. At family picnics they'd put me on the table and I'd just start singing.
Missy: 'My Struggles' is a record close to me. On this record I'm talking about what my home was like with my father being abusive to my mother. I wasn't born into being a superstar, I went through a lot and when I heard the track it brought me back to Grand Puba and Mary J. Blige on What's the 411?
Missy: (about working with Fantasia) I so enjoyed working with her. She's one of the most incredible voices I've heard in a long time. As soon as I did the record I knew it was for her.
Missy: (about the song On & On) Back then, the rapping style wasn't as deep. It was very simple,... ...People could catch on with all the spaces and breaks between the raps and that's basically what I did on this song.
Missy Elliott: The double chin's not good for the red carpet.
