Missy Elliott showed off her much thinner figure on a photo posted on Instagram, when she performed at Alexander Wang’s H&M Collection Launch in New York City on Thursday.
The 43-year-old talented rapper looks great, after reportedly losing 70 pounds!
Elliott has been following a healthy diet and exercise program as she continues to battle the rare disease that attacks the thyroid.
Missy shared a photo on social media, writing, “Just got off stage thanks @ALEXANDERWANGNY and @hmusa for having me perform I enjoyed”.
The rapper wore a Nike hooded jumper and a snap back cap with the words “You Can’t Workout With Us”.
The illness had been so bad that she could barely do daily tasks. She revealed, “I couldn’t write because my nervous system was so bad – I couldn’t even use a pen”.
The singer realized something was terribly wrong when she was driving and her leg started jumping. She recalled, “I couldn’t keep the brake down and almost crashed”.
The star also suffered severe mood swings, dizzy spells, and hair loss. She had radiation treatment and medication.
Her health has greatly improved over the past year after exercising and losing weight.
Missy shared, “My thyroid is functioning, so I haven’t had to take medication in about nine months. [But] you live with it for the rest of your life.”
Well, she looks great and we’d love to hear some new music from Missy. So talented!
