Missy Addresses Graves Disease Questions


News broke yesterday that rapper/singer/songwriter Missy Elliot was battling Grave’s Disease, which contributed to her disappearing from the spotlight for a few years. Elliot has decided to clarify the reports, which she says were a bit over-exaggerated.

“There have been some inaccuracies reported in regards to my diagnosis with Grave’s Disease, so I wanted to clear things up. I was diagnosed with Grave’s Disease about three years ago but it really hasn’t slowed me down at all. I rocked my performance on VH1 Hip Hop Honors’ tribute to Timbaland last year. I’ve written and produced a bunch of Grammy-nominated, #1 hits for artists like Keyshia Cole, Monica and Jasmine Sullivan. I toured the UK, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia.

“And on top of all that, I’m working on my new album,” Missy added. “I feel great. Under my doctor’s supervision, I’ve been off medication for about a year and I’m completely managing the condition through diet and exercise.”
