T is always a method to Missy Elliott’s madness, and now we know why she chose to rock the hell out of that giant black plastic bag in her 1997 video for “The Rain.”.

Missy is Elle Magazine’s cover girl for the June issue.

Though shy is never the first word that comes to mind for this boundary-pushing artist/producer, Missy says she had no qualms about her vision for this look.

You super-fans may remember that Missy was actually the face of Jacobs’s Fall 2016 campaign.

“From the moment I heard, ‘The Rain’, back in 1997, I was entranced by the genius rhythms and brilliant rhymes of Missy Elliott,” Jacobs wrote last year on Instagram.

An Elle cover, a new album and documentary all in one year? What did we do to deserve all this Missy?!
