TSR STAFF: Chantel Kelli! @_popchanny! _______________ Congratulations are in order for #MissyElliot who just secured the bag, okay!? She received her honorary doctorate from #BerkleeCollegeofMusic today!! Did y’all she is thee FIRST female rapper to receive the degree!? ________________ Other creatives to hold this degree are #ArethaFranklin, #BBKing, #SmokeyRobinson and #LorettaLynn. This has been a helluva year for #Missy as she was also inducted into the #SongwritersHallofFame in January! Congratulations, Missy!!
As mentioned in the previous video’s caption, Elliott received her accommodation from Berklee College — a premier and prestigious music college in Boston, Massachusetts.
When Dr. Elliott walked up on stage — amid a standing ovation — she arrived to the podium. Well, as you see from the video above, the administrators acted as if they couldn’t tell they were putting her yoke on backward.
And they stood there, as she gave her speech, allowing with her yoke to stay on backward. YET, they put Justin Timberlake’s yoke on the right way.
It just seems like it should’ve been an easy adjustment on their part. They do this presentation twice a year with students.
How would they not know it’s on backward ……… not only backward, but UPSIDE DOWN as well??
Nevertheless, aside from that, Dr. Missy Elliott gave an inspirational speech and moved forward in excellence. In the photo below, her wardrobe situation is fixed.
So, all in all, congratulations Missy! This is an awesome day in history.
