"But won't look my way. She's a bitch see I got more cheese. So back on up while I roll up a slit Elliott's bond with Timbaland was as strong as ever. He produced all of the real world's hits. And within a year, they were back at work on a third Missy Elliott album, which would come out in 2001 under the title miss E so addictive. And its lead single might well have been the most advanced progressive track the pair had produced yet. On Jay-Z's big pimpin, Timbaland had experimented with sampling Egyptian music. But on Missy Elliott's get your freak on. Tim made big pimpin seem almost conventional..

"Didn't even think, like the way we are now, we're probably more open to just playing stuff and seeing what people think, we didn't do that then. We came in saying, okay, this is going to be the first single. And then we're going to come with this. We wasn't playing it for somebody to tell us if it was hot or not. We was playing it because we thought it was hot. Exactly. And as time went on, your confidence can either build or it could stagger or it could just go to nothing. And I think as time went on, we probably started to ask people. But then I got to a point that I'm just like, nah, I just want to do music that feels good to me. And absolutely. Just like you, you are legendary. Legendary. At this point, you probably doing it like, I'm just having fun. There was a time where you may have felt like you was concentrating on making this kind of music or timeless. So you're not even thinking like that now. I'd improve myself. What? I'm having fun. I'm going to take two spoons and hit on this trash can and throw this out because it feels good to me right now while you have proven yourself time and time again. And what's the use of doing music if you can't have fun with it? Absolutely. I've always tried to make music that I like and never question what anyone else is going to think because I can't, I can't imagine what anyone else is going to think and at least if I'm true to what I like, at least I know some one person likes it. You know, it's better than making something that maybe nobody likes. I'm making things that I like and I care about it. That's all I could do. Absolutely. I said, just think if there was one person in the room, I always say Michael and Quincy or whoever else was in that room when they were creating thriller. They all had to be aligned in the same space. Because if one person had been like, what is close to midnight some evil is that what kind of song is this? It could have threw them all the way off and made them trash that record. But they was all aligned in that room where they had to be like, visually, they was in the same place. I see it. I hear it. This is going to be huge. And those are the type of people that I try to, you know, keep around, not just yes, ma'am, people, you know, if it's something that is truly whack, I want my Friends to be like, yo. Absolutely. Absolutely. Otherwise, you're living in a world of not reality. Like you have no idea. It's like, I want to make something that I like and if someone else doesn't like it, it's cool, but I want to know if they don't like it. It's just so I understand the world, you know? Right, right. But yeah, I mean, you were such a legend in people dream to get to that place. And you have an impeccable ear. So I know that, you know, when you have an ear like that, you would have to be a 120 for anybody to be like, nah. If you was to say, even at 90, you be like, not that ain't it. I'm gonna believe it. But I feel like you're exactly the same. We both been doing it long enough where we, you know, it's like it's obvious we know what we're doing. It's okay. Yeah, yeah. I almost definitely probably had a few producers mad at me when I realize now that ain't it. That means that means you care and you're honest, you know, that's part of the job too, it's not just going along with it. Yeah. You know, especially in this time when you've been around for so long, though, but then you may get some young dungar ones that come in and be like, nah, I don't know what you're talking about. This, I'm telling you, this, what everybody listened to and that's the great thing about, I think, what we have done is we created something in yourself that hadn't been done. And so you are in a position to be able to say that because you wasn't following what everybody else was doing. And if you can teach any upcoming producers like, hey, you know, you stand out. Because at the end of the day, you don't want it to be 5 of you 'cause if you got 5 of you, then most of the time, the label going to go with the cheapest one anyway, so you better hope you to cheat one because otherwise you're not gonna be picked like it's gonna be easy for them to go with the one that is popping right now. So you better off just trying to do something that will be game changing. And game changing, you don't get a lot of those. You can count those. It ain't ain't a lot of game changes. It's true. Thank you so much for speaking to me. This was beautiful. I thank you and hopefully we will see each other. But it's been fun and I appreciate you just know that you are legendary and will continue to be and it was an honor speaking to you. The honor is all mine. Thank you so much and we speak soon and hopefully I get to see you and give you big hug and thank you personally. Yes. Well, you enjoy yourself and be safe out there.

"Hard. But it worked out. Yeah. Yeah, it was definitely most definitely worked out, but by the time my third album, we was having fun again. But I remember the third album, we were finished, I didn't think we were finished and Tim, he was like, I'm telling you, this album is solid, I was like, no, something is missing. And he was like, man, he was so he was so mad at me because I say no something is missing. So I say, just see what else you got in the keyboard. So he got on the ASR ten and he started going down a thing and he hit one of the things and it was like, and I'm like, yo, that was it, and he was like, what? 'cause now he going so fast up and down the keyboard, he can't find it no more. So now he even more mad 'cause I'm like, yo, I'm telling you, I know what I heard. And so he hitting the keyboard all hard 'cause he ready to go. He's like, what? It ain't in here. I don't know what you're talking about. So he finally hits it again. And I'm like, that. And I'm like, that joint is crazy. So when I rapped on it, it was only that sound in a kick. Wow. 'cause that's how Tim, a lot of times we would do stuff. He would, you know, it would just be like one sound and a kick, and then after I finished rap and he would go and place all the other things around it. And so that's where you got all the Spacey noise and stuff. So good. That was a really common practice in the early days of hip hop to leave a really long instrumental at the end, so that other people could wrap over it themselves. Yeah, and you know, just meet sitting there listening, actually to it. Just speaks to the genius in Timbaland to again is the fact that he would make hip hop those records. He would treat them like R&B records. If you really like, we can get a chance to go back and listen. He was placing strings in different sounds. He was having a separation. It wasn't just a flat beat straight through. So he would add different sounds like every four bars, he would put in another sound when the hooks came, it would be strings, and he would do that to a lot of his records. Absolutely. They never get boring. You never just get used to the groove. It always feels like, even if you're not paying attention, it really became clear after the vocals, all the changes that were going on in the music, because they're subtle, you know, they don't make you listen to them, but they have an effect on your subconscious that it feels like it's always evolving. It's always new. Yeah, especially when you get to that end and you see how he starts to break it down. I always say that too in that record, is that your chick, he does that heavily in there too. But most of the records he did that. So when just listening now because I never listen to the end, make me just realize he treated those records like you would treat R&B records. Would you say that spirituality plays a role in your music? Oh, spirituality plays a role in Missy, period. In this industry, if I didn't have some kind of spiritual connection, I don't know how I could have made it, you know? In this industry, a lot of artists come in. Just thinking it's going to be, you're going to make a lot of money, you're going to be famous, you know, you're going to be hot forever in all of these different things. That's what you come in thinking. And then you realize, oh, you've been duped. You know, I always tell people you won't be hot forever. You can always have respect, though. Because it'll come a time where even the hottest of the hottest won't be sitting at the top of the charts anymore, but you the impact and respect will always be there. But spiritually, you have to have some, you know, for me, I feel like I had to have some kind of connection because when those times come of those ups and downs like that, you have to be able to, you know, I come from a praying family. So being that I feel like God gonna work it out. If I didn't have that, I don't know how I would be able to manage because there has been way ups and then there has been weighed out. And that's a lot, especially if you're coming from way up, you know, in a lot of artists, people don't prepare artists for that. And that's a lot of times where you may get a lot of artists deal with mental health issues. Because they came in and nobody prepared them for those different ups and downs. Regardless of what's hot and what's not hot and or even doing it professionally, do you feel like on any given day you could write a song that you would love? You could always do that. Is that something that you feel confident in or is it moving target, would you say? Oh, I feel like I'm always making some joints that. I always feel like that. That I haven't wavered from. Now, whether the people feel the same, so you just don't know. That's their problem. They just might not know exactly. You don't know what the people will feel, but I always say I'd rather do something that I believe in, and if it don't work, then I can still sleep good. Opposed to do something that, let's say, if the label will say, hey, this is the one and I don't feel like that. And then it don't work. And I'm kicking myself in the ass for the rest of my life. So, you know, a lot of times if I do something and if it don't work, I just be like, hey, maybe this, you know, I do understand not to be bragging, but some people are ahead. And I do understand that some things may be ahead. Yeah. That's part of what makes you you and that's why you're in the role that you're in and that's why you were very early in the movement. And you just, you felt it early. Yeah. I'm sure not everybody felt it at the time that you felt it. Oh, absolutely not. I remember like when I did she's a bitch and remember puff hitting me like money, what are you doing? When he seen that boy and he was like, what your money, what are you doing? So you know, at that time, we.

"More at IBM dot com. We're back with the rest of Rick Rubin's conversation with Missy Elliott. Tell me about your writing process. How does it start? What's the first thing that happens? My writing process, a lot of times I could be riding down the street thinking of something. I listened to a lot of my friends problems. Sometimes I'm just sitting and listening to a conversation. And just pick up ideas and listen to what they going through. And then get a track and sometimes I'll already sing melodies in my now that I, you know, we can do that on our phones. I'll sing melodies on my note thing on my phone. Before there's even a beat. Yes. And then once I get a track, you know, I can adjust it to whatever track it is. Once I have the words and somewhat of a melody, I can adjust it to whatever track. Is it all about the words or could it be about the phrasing or the melody? Sometimes it's depending on what the vibe is. Sometimes, you know, music. You may hear a track and I believe music speaks to you, you know? And kind of tells you, you can hear record and you may hear a track and say, oh, these sounds like sound like sexy chords and make you wanna sing a song about sex. So you hear a song and it sounds like a motivational chorus. I believe courts really do give you a place of feeling. But a lot of times when I'm just walking, sometimes I walk in the mountain and I'll just think of a melody. So the melody for me a lot of times, be first, 'cause sometimes I'll get on the mic and I'll just hum some stuff. And then in lyrics account. I honestly was like, I had to just do an album where I'm just humming a bunch of gibberish. To the show, this is how most people, a lot of people create that way. Have you ever written a song with another person like sitting together looking at each other and writing a song together or it's always each person does their own thing. Last year was the first time in my whole career. That I have collapsed with a writer. I have written every last one of minds, every last one of anybody else's I've done. And at some point, you know, you just feel like, hey, it's good to just have some freshness coming in. You can't 90 years old. I'm still talking about it. I'm feeling the right. Open a rightful Cardi B. Up in the right Beyoncé. You got to know when it's like, okay, it's okay. To bring in help because I've done this with another 5 years it'll be 30 years. Yeah. 25 is a good number. 25 is a great number. And congratulations on the anniversary of the first solo album. That's an incredible milestone. And a funny thing when I tell you that album, we did that album in two weeks. And we did it because I wanted to have my own record label so bad. And Sylvia rose said the only way that I'll give you a record label is if you give me an album, give me one album. And I was like, Tim, come on, let's get her this album, so I can get this label. So we did it out of Harry on up. Like I really wanted the label so bad. And because at that time, I had member I had left and went back home, so I didn't want to be an artist anymore. And so we did it so quick. It was two weeks. And I was like, here. And from that album, it went on to the next album, the next album, the next album. But initially, it was just like, I just wanted to label. So that's how that album came about. Fascinating. So in some ways, when you took a break in 2005, it's almost like that's how you wanted it to be from the beginning and then just other stuff happened. Yeah. That's amazing. That's amazing. I love doing both, but I'm very shy. It although it may not seem like it, 'cause I get to talking, but I'm very shy. So people have to understand like I started in a group so to go from a group to a solo artist, you have to mentally already know that that's what you want to do. And that's not something that I came in this thing thinking. So I ended up being a solo artist and everything you feel like everything is on you now. You don't have, you know, other people that you could talk to when things go crazy. And then, you know, the second album became more stressful. The first album I always tell people you are at your most vulnerable, you don't care, is you don't have nothing to compare it to is that second album that is going to give you that headache because if your first album is successful, then you're chasing trying to find the success of whatever records you put out that made that album go, you're trying to find that same style for that second album. And it just feel like, oh my God. Nothing is right. And I didn't even appreciate my second album until later. And realized that actually that album was a masterpiece because we used a lot of theatrical loops and stuff in that album mixed with hip hop, but at that time it was just like, oh, that was, that was a headache. That second. 'cause it's scary, you know what it is a thing called sophomore jinx. Yeah, for sure. I didn't want to be an artist, but now I'm in it. And so now I gotta make sure I don't fail the second album. So that was.

"All we had been hearing. The song, the song was already written, tell me what you played her. I mean, I played it for after I had demoed the vocals. Because that's me at the beginning, saying love you, baby. Me and Tim, went in and recorded it. And then I played her, you know, the version with my vocals on it. And she loved it. And she got it immediately. Which when I think about it, it just shows that she was aligned with us, musically anyway, because we had to show people how to sing and rap over something that, like I said, that hadn't existed before. People didn't know where to place this music. They didn't know whether to go to the R&B and hip hop or to the pop. They didn't know where to place it. But she got it. Immediately. But that actually wasn't the first record that she did. The first record she did was if your girl only knew. And even for her to get that record. And we were only supposed to do one record on alea. And it went from one to two to three to four to 5. It just kept going. Wow. And she took a chance because she was Aaliyah already to the world. You know, she had the chance to be able to work with any major producer out there. And here we were to young kids coming in. With nothing really under our belts and she just was like, I love what y'all doing. And she just kept recording each record that we would do. She would be like, I want that one. I want that one. Yeah, I love that. And she did it. Typically when you would write for someone else, would it typically happen like that you would write it, do a demo of the whole song and then present it to the artist or was it ever more collaborative than that? No, I always wrote it and always demoed it. And then I started as time went on, I started to get, I would write it, and then I would get Jasmine or tweet or somebody to demo for me. But actually, the one person I did have demo in early on on one song was Gina Thompson, she demoed, I care for you for Aaliyah. But yet I would just go in there and write the songs and then demo it. And then I was not like, I didn't consider myself a singer singer like that I wasn't giving you no Whitney Houston notes. And so by me not being a singer, I would just kind of rap singing and that's how if you listen to one in a million, it's like rap singing because I wasn't a person who could do all of those runs and stuff like that so I would just rap sing songs and it just ended up being a new kind of rhythm too. Have you ever written a song for someone else they not do it and then you end up doing it yourself? Has it ever happened? No, I've never written a song for someone else and then I ended up doing it. I always ended up giving it to someone else. Yeah. 'cause for me, I'm so critical on myself, like that's probably been the hardest thing for me is once I do it for the artists I have them in mind or artists in mind and not me because I know when I do stuff for myself is always like some weird crazy stuff. So I know that those artists probably be like, oh nah, you bucking. So I've never taken a record that I had for somebody else and use it on myself. So when you say critical of yourself in that way, I want to understand it better. Is it that the song's not good enough for you or that it doesn't suit your personality or if there's a song that you think is great, but that it's not right for you that you wrote, what's the thought process? Well, me as the artist, I do stuff so differently for myself that a lot of times it's so like out there, I couldn't imagine, you know, somebody else saying don't. You know, something I said and work it. I couldn't imagine somebody else saying some of the stuff that I've said, not to say they wouldn't, but I just know stuff that is more suitable for me. So when I do those records, they're more tame down than what I would do for myself. Yeah. Because for myself, I'm taking the chance. I'm just like, you know, I'm going to say whatever, you know, I'm going to say she's a bitch. I'm going to say pussy don't fail me now. And sing it. And these artists would probably be like, now Missy, I do many things, but so I'm just different as the artist. Yes. So your records tend to be more extreme and you could say lyrically harder or more challenging or crazier. It wouldn't feel right to give someone else a song like that expecting them to do it. Yes, even to this day, like it's a few artists that probably would do. It's just because I say, yo, I'm telling you it's going to go as hot. But for the most part, I'm taking more of a risk on myself. So those records that I do for other artists. Once I do them, I just say, hey, this will go to somebody, but just not me. Who was the first artist that you or the first group of artists that you looked up to and felt like, this is my inspiration. This is what I want to do. Who are the people that got you to want to do it? Oh, so many artists, the gospel, I would have to say the clock sisters. As far as R&B, prince Michael, Janet, when you come to hip hop, I would go back to Roxanne, Queen Latifah, light, salt and pepper, the reason I started rapping. LL, big daddy came public enemy, moaning, you know, all the hip hop mothers and fathers of this thing. I would say to be honest, the whole 90s for me early 90s really just like inspired me. But the 80s also because I feel like the 80s people were experimental. With music. The song pepper is the reason that I started rapping. They are most definitely the reason. We have to take a quick break, but we'll be right back with more from Missy Elliott and Rick Rubin.

"To be creative. Yes, absolutely, because when you think about those reels, when you think about recording from tape that the tape that I always wonder who came up with that and like who? To do that and to be able to, I was able to put harmonies that way without us even having a studio. This is so crazy. And you've worked with Tim from the beginning throughout your career pretty much. Yes? Oh yeah, from that day, that first day of going to Tim's house in his dad hated when that doorbell would ring, 'cause his dad, I think, drove trucks. And so he would be driving late at night and he would just be fussing like, y'all got to go. Y'all got to get out of here. Make it on that boom bap. I got the drive. He would be fussing us out, but we were so, and we were so intrigued, it's so crazy. When I tell you, I think back to just the beginning, like the first song that I ever heard, 'cause I heard him, I seen an interview attempt not too long ago. And he was like, you know, Missy taught me so much. And it's funny because I learned so much just from the first song I remember Donna Summer last dance. And I said, at a young age, I was so intrigued at the structure of that record. And I was like, what made her start this slow? Yeah, it starts slow and then it turns into a dance song and you're not expecting it to turn into a dance song. Yeah, and at a young age that intrigued me that I hadn't heard a record do that. And till this day, that is a structure that I always say was just so amazing to me. That was the first record that caught my attention. So I always gravitated to things that probably people wouldn't have paid attention to, but then when we by the time I met Tim and we started getting into hip hop really crazy. Well, I was in the hip hop before I met him because I'm quite sure he was into it too round junior high school. We were in the UTFO run DMC days. But by that time we was in the public enemy when I met Tim and everything was chuck D and play everything was, yeah, boy. Are they not? And we would just sit and listen to the 8 O 8s and stuff that they would have in their records in the break beats that they would use in public enemy records. And we was just always so amazed. We then, you know, we were most definitely in the tribe, and I always used to say, goo you sound just like Q tip. Tell me that. So those days really shaped us too. Just the whole hip hop culture, like we was so heavy, heavy, heavy, heavy, into it. We'll be right back after the break with more from Missy Elliott and Rick Rubin.

To believe first he was DJ tummy too. So he was so quiet. A quiet genius. And what I always say about Tim and Pharrell just amaze me in two different ways. Tim, because he didn't play, he went off a feeling when he created music. Somebody that went to school probably with technically say these sounds put together are wrong. This is not in the correct key. But he because he went off a feeling if it was right. It was wrong, but it was right. And it was new, and it was new. Yes. And, you know, we really showed people how to rap and sing over a cadence that hadn't existed. Before us. That Kate is so off. To people, I remember one in a million was hard to get played. Because they were saying a lot of people were saying a lot of the program directors were saying that they couldn't mix it in or blended in with the record before or after because of the rhythm of it. Yeah. And it was weird because although it was so slow, it still made you bounce. In the weirdest way, like all the songs that we did just had this bounce even if they were so records. So I think that's the genius in that is that sometimes it's not just about just being technical because I've had people who are amazing, technically, but the feeling is not there. And so that's why I think Tim was always so great at what he did because he went off a feeling. It felt right. It's amazing that there was a time that that was too unusual to go on the radio when it had so much of an effect in all music that came after it. Tell me the story of that song from the beginning. First time you heard the beat. I was out working with 7 O two and Tim call me and was like, hey, you know, we got this opportunity to do something on Aaliyah. Now, you know, we still knew. Nobody really knows who we are. So when me and Tim got together, I'm like, Tim, you know, were we gonna do? Because she was already a superstar. So I'm like, yo, let's just give her our old sound. Nobody never heard it. So it'll be like a new sound. Because that sound was probably four years old to us. Wow. Because we had been signed and the stuff didn't come out. So we have been on that wave that whole rhythm. And I said, let's just give her that. So Tim was like, are you sure I'm like, yeah, like, dude, you know, we were still in a place of, we didn't know what was hot or not. All we knew was what we did. Yeah. You know, this is hot. Not knowing it was really hot, but it.

"Was a fun place growing up. Was it more like the country or was it more like the suburbs would you say? Poison was country. We had the dirt roads. Wow. Yeah. Okay. Yeah, like we had the dirt roads like mad Woods and yeah, we didn't see we didn't see like paved roads like that and I used to stay in a place called pews Bill. And we didn't see that for a long time. Our roles were very rocky. Now, where Tim and Pharrell is from, they were kind of like the upscale in Virginia Beach. So they might have had paid roles in Portsmouth. When coming up, we had a lot of dirt roads. I've only been to Virginia Beach one time and that was to visit teddy Riley and his studio back a while back. Oh, the future. I think it was future records. Yes. Do you know I love teddy? When I tell you I love teddy and my group went to teddy and sung for him. Like, we were so scared. We used to drive past the studio all the time. And we finally got up the nerve to go to his studio and sing. And it was maybe like 5 of us. And we sang and he was like, I see 5 of y'all, but I only hear two part harmony. Like, no. He didn't sign us. I was like, oh my God. It was like starting all over again because we had spent so much time working up the nerve to finally go to his studio 'cause we used to always drive past this, see all of these fly cars and finally got in there and he was like, I see 5 of y'all, but I only heard two parts. How old were you at that time? Do you remember? We had to be 19. How much did you record with the group? Oh, we did a whole album. Yeah, I used to be in a group called sister, which was signed to jodeci. And we were signed under sylvie Rome. Oh, cool. And Sylvia Rome let devonte label go. Which means we got dropped to anybody that was under him. And then she came back and signed me as a solo artist. Amazing. Yeah. We always me and her always joke about this. You dropped me. And then you signed me. It all worked out. It all worked out. When the group ended was a clear that you were going to do solo as opposed to either continuing the group or put together a new group. I had no clue I was going to ever go solo. So the story behind that is I was in the group, we got signed, we went to a jodeci show. And we performed for Dalvin and then Dalvin made us perform for KC, Casey made us perform for JoJo. And then we ended up performing for devonta. And so he said, hey, you know, I'm gonna sign y'all. I'm gonna fly y'all up to New York next week. We didn't believe him. But he really did. And so I signed with him and I kept telling him, hey, you know, I got this guy and he does all of our music and I'm telling you he is amazing and his name is DJ Timmy Tim. And he was like, I don't care who he is. He say, you know, me and I'll be sure are gonna do you all album. And I said, please, please, you know, bring him up here. Can I please bring him up here? And I begged him begged until he finally bought Tim, and then once Tim came, I said, hey, I got another friend. His name is magoo. I promise he is so dope. He was like, you're not gonna bring everybody from Virginia. I got them up there. So I ended up leaving and I was the first one to leave. And I didn't know where I was going. I didn't know what I was going to do. I had no plans, nothing. It was a scary thing because, you know, mind you, my family, had already thought this was a bad idea. So I go somewhere and now I'm back at the crib. I'm home. And it's like, what are you doing here? I thought she was going away to be a star. And I'm like, no, I'm back. But before any of that, magoo introduced me to temp. So I know I'm going backwards, but we were in high school. And magoo, I always ask him, like, I don't even remember how I met magoo, but it's so crazy. Magoo ended up giving me the name misdemeanor because he said it was a crime for one to have as many talents as I had and I stuck with that name. And he was just like, hey, I got this guy. And he actually didn't introduce him to me for work. It was really for us to just hang out. And so I went to Tim's house and he was a DJ. He didn't even understand his gift that he had. And when I got there, he was just, you know, scratching and stuff. He was dope as a DJ too. And then he started he had a little casio keyboard and he started playing on the casio keyboard and I don't know if you remember cassio's back then they had the little dog sounds. And this is where I believe all of this sounds came from in the songs because the cassio had those like me just like animal sounds and he found a genius way to make beats with that stuff in it. And he really at the time wasn't calling itself a producer at all. And he one day he was just doing a beat on a casio and I started rapping and he was like, yo, that's crazy and I remember all of us being in the room and it's just going just rapping I went from rapping and singing rapping and singing and he just kept doing beats and then with Google come in and we was having a cipher and you know this was something that this was our past time. Yeah. At the time we didn't think, oh, we're gonna go on to make records. We just was having fun. And every day after school, me and my goo would get together and we started going to Tim's house and just started doing records. And we were recording from tape deck to take that. I don't know if you remember how people recording like that until the song sounded real fuzzy and muffled, but yeah, we was recording like that. Like a pause tape? Yes. Yes. So people don't people don't the artist these days they'll they'll realize how good they got it. I say, I have these reels in my house and I'm trying to get them converted over and I say these artists don't even realize these reels would what these reels was like cutting.

"Do you not listen to music regularly? Well, you know, it's weird 'cause I do listen to a lot of music, but a lot of it I catch it when I catch it, especially when I'm starting to work on stuff. I go into this place of not listening to anything. And that's how, you know, pretty much started when I first started me and Tim, just like not listening, you know, we were forbidden to listen to other people's stuff or watch videos. And I think in a crazy way that ended up working in our favor because we didn't see nor here. So we ended up creating a sound that we didn't know we were creating. We just didn't know what was hot. So we didn't know it was hot to mimic it. Great. And I think that always works because then it allows you to not be so afraid to try something new 'cause you don't know what's hot out there to know if yours is too far or not enough. What about listening to classics? Yeah, no, I know people get in my car and feel like they in the 80s and tonight I'm gonna always play those joys. Like those classics, the timeless records will always stay in my car. I know my little cousins hate it. They hate it. They feel like, don't you? Don't you have to take those out. Listen to this one 12 record. It's just something about it that warms my heart for whatever reason. What was the music playing in your house when you were growing up? Was there a music in your house when you were growing up? Oh yeah, so the funny thing about when I was growing up my mother was into gospel and my father was into R&B, which, in the gospel world, they say, worldly music. So I had the best of both worlds because I had my mother playing gospel records and then my father would be playing Marvin Gaye. Prince Michael, there you would go to minute work. I remember whip it. You know, Grace Jones, whatever. Gospel on one side and R&B on the other side. Did your parents listen to each other's music? Did your dad like the gospel and did your mom like the R&B? No. Absolutely not. That's probably why they didn't stay together. To see. No, my mother was really in the gospel. And I would be in my room and I'm the only child. So, you know, they would turn the music up on both ends and when you come from a gospel world, you know, hearing R&B and especially Marvin Gaye's sexual healing is like, what? You know, my mama was not having it. And my father didn't want to hear the gospel either. So it was like a DJ contest that for whatever reason it felt like that. Do you feel like you were more influenced by hearing the R&B or the gospel? I was influenced by both. I think I learned harmonies by listening to the gospel. I think I learned feeling by listening to the gospel. Something about gospel music just has a conviction when you hear the singers. The R&B side, there was a sauce that I learned from that. And lyrical content love, you know, heartache. What's going on in the world? And so I think I had the best of both. Matter of fact I know I did. It's amazing. In a weird way, being in the middle in the in my room, hearing both sides, I was absorbing both like a sponge. At the time, did you like them both when you were a kid? Do you remember like in them both? As a kid, I feel like I did like them both because, you know, church you go to church, you're going to church Wednesday for prayer meeting. Thursday for choir rehearsal. Sunday, you know, it's like church church church. So you had no choice but to like that. And I liked it anyway because I just come from a spiritual family. The R&B side, I loved, like I stayed in the mirror, mimicking these artists. And I would get in the mirror and I would make up these speeches that, you know, I was at the awards, thinking Michael and Janet, I hadn't even met these people yet. You know, it was like, thank you, Madonna for letting me write records for you. I hadn't met none of them. And I was constantly doing that in front of my doll babies. So it was something about that that I knew I was gonna go in that direction. Were your parents supportive of your interest in music or did they laugh at you for thinking this is what you were going to do? By the time I decided to become an artist, my mother and father had separated my mother was trying to get me in the military and I was like, I can't even walk from here to the car without getting tired. I know you don't expect me to go. And nobody's navy or army and be running for my dear life. You know, so in my family, they didn't take me serious because in Virginia at that time, artists wasn't going through Virginia like that. You know, maybe a show here or there. It wasn't like it is now. So it was hard to believe that I'm going to go away and I'm going to be famous. But I have been saying that since I was a little girl, I remember kindergarten every Friday to teach it as what we want to be. And I would listen to the kids saying, I'm going to be a fireman. I'm going to be a policeman. I'm going to be a teacher and I'll be a doctor and then come round to me and I'm like, I'm going to be a superstar and a whole class of this bust out laughing. And I never wavered. Every Friday I set the same thing and they laughed every Friday. And I always wanted to do those kids remember me. Because I remember them. I remember them well. But yeah, my family, they didn't think that that could happen. And they didn't think it was best for me because I think they thought that I would be naive and go out there and be wilding out and get on all kind of situations that I had no business. So they didn't think it was good for me. At first tell me about growing up in Virginia, just tell me about Virginia a little bit, describe the place you grew up in, the area. Virginia, I grew up in Portsmouth Virginia. And everybody knew everybody. Small town feeling? Yes, very small town. You know in New York, you may run into somebody and you may never see them ever again in life. In Virginia, you're going to no matter whether you're from Virginia Beach, Hampton roads, Newport News, suffering in those places, you're going to run into them again. And, you know, in Virginia, everybody is just like family, you know, I remember time where we used to. We can't do that now, but we used to go up to each other house and just knock on the screen doing be like, coming in, we didn't lock our doors. And, you know, we all played together. And this.

This year is the 25th anniversary of misses certified classic debut album, super duper fly. When that album first dropped, Missy's unconventional rhyme scheme and unique flavor, paired with her childhood friend Timbaland's futuristic production, set a precedent for what was creatively possible in hip hop. And throughout her career, Missy's maintained that level of playful creativity. You can hear it on her slew of radio hits like.

"missy elliott" Discussed on Look Behind The Look

"Did you think the kids would know. Did you know how did you even know i. Don't i have no idea what i was know. I mean i think. I mean i don't know what the answer to that is. I mean obviously am gay. I i never did drag for like halloween and stuff like that once. I moved to new york. But i and i never wanted to be a makeup artist so i don't know where the i think i was just trying to find myself but anyway i wore mascara to school one day and did not considered the fact that there would be and jim wasn't air conditioned and i guess i didn't have waterproof goodness. What was the reaction. Somebody faulk that you know. I tried to play off. I mean i didn't get my ass character anything. Thank god so okay yes yes yes yes okay so then. This is when you started experimenting with makeup or no. That day was overdone. You're like no. We're not doing that. Yeah i mean. I never experimented. No when did you discover magic. Makes makeup makes magic and transformation right. I think i was just a creative kid. Like you know h old story. I didn't fit in really I wasn't into sports. I wasn't into being that tip. People typically were into. I was in two. I've always been into home decor and stuff like that. And i got my first job was in retail and it was actually the only jewish family that lived my god probably within one hundred miles and they had a clothing store and i got a job there and started doing all this plays and things like that and i remember updating the mannequins with make up. Not really knowing what i was doing but for me was to start. Of course you know. I did you know. I painted their lips with nail polish. And whatever and they were so nice to me. I mean i ended up just kind of i was like sixteen or something and they let me do whatever i wanted in regards to displays and stuff like that and then I always worked in retail and then was the first guy to major in fashion merchandising at a rural community college which was also probably not the best idea in regards to You know not drawing attention to my gayness but anyway so the great thing about that was. I met a teacher. Her name was donna vaughan and she had actually moved to mississippi from memphis and her experience was at goldsmiths which which was a federated department store. It was like for down here. it was like Nordstrom's or or macy's or something like that and i was offered

interview With June Ambrose

"Listen up. This is going to be such a fun. Episode of checking in with michelle williams. I've had a few moments with my guest. June ambrose as it relates to mental health and fashion and there was an episode that we filmed on his show she had on. Vh wild cod style. By june ambrose. I was so insecure. Because i was coming out of well. It'd been a few years. Since i was a solo artist. And no longer touring. They're singing with destiny's child. I was trying to find my style footing outside of the group. How was trying to refine. It actually couldn't refine it. Because i had to define it and june. Ambrose really really helped me with that. Will we found out that it was deeper than defining my fashion sense. We discovered so much fear in me of walking alone doing something by myself so she said to a place where it was a cia trap. He studio where i only thought that. If you're training for gymnastics or the circus that you should only be going to these types of places but going into that trap appease plays when you have to stand on the ledge. I literally burst out in tears. Because i had a revelation that i was scared to take the leap by myself. That was just a personal nugget. I'm just so thankful to june for helping me discover that once again at went beyond anything that she was going to put me in fashion wise. It went beyond anything that surge on the makeup artist was gonna do with my makeup. It went beyond any even. They dyed my hair but none of that mattered. If i was going to continue to walk around with so much fear hours just literally gonna look fierce and be fearful and wanna be fearful some just so thankful to june for helping me take that leap of faith. Now i want to welcome to my podcast. June ambrose and amazing style icon herself but she has made her clients to be celebrity style icons as well especially in the hip hop world for superstars like missy elliott and jay z. And so many more. She's also the creative director for the global brand puma. And when she's not on my podcast she's an n. b. man costume designer for some of the biggest music videos and tv shows. But let me tell you something. She's also just a fabulous friend wife and mother please welcome. I can call her my friend. Y'all please welcome june ambrose. How category. I absolutely absolutely. I really wanted to just speak on your joy. And also the psychology behind your styling. But as i was thinking of people to be on this podcast especially those that are walking their journey to have a better quality of mental health. As said june. Ambrose is always smiling. June ambrose is always full of joy and i was like i never see her in a bad mood and i just wanna know june. How do you keep your joy. It's really exhausting. To be sad it'd be sad instead of the other way around. Yeah like it's. I find that you know i. Smoke is joining that. Were on in life. The cycle we think it's as we're living but it's going very slow but it's actually going really. It's a short trip you know. We're lucky we get a hundred years. You know so. I tried to make everyday count. I try to even on my worst date on on our bed. Dang something happens that may be upsetting or disappointing. I know that it won't that you know there's always a tomorrow. Hopefully yeah if. I want there to be if there isn't gonna make this moment joyful. Yeah i just to tap. And i think since memories really help you to kind of stay happy you know when you tap back into those moments that joint like always tell people that hate taking photos if you feel awkward and uncomfortable in front of a camera tap into like sense memories and think about the feeling the emotion not about. What's in front of you but think about what's inside of you. You know that constant reminder that technique is something that takes practice so if you work on tapping into the joy. When you're in pain you'll be able to call on it even if it doesn't it doesn't sustain you for length of time. At least you know you have the ability to tap into a good feeling. You have that choice now. Some people struggle with not being able to tap into their joy. You know for for many reasons. But i recognize that is one of my superpower so i like to share it and it's just again. It's less exhausting. it's more fun being degi. Hear what she said. Did you get those nuggets. I mean because i feel like you were saying even if you are having a bad day you don't you're not gonna let it turn into your worst day and i also feel like if you're having a bad day some people will let everybody know around them that they're having a bad hair then you make everybody else have a bad day for michelle is kind of also you patient than than a man in space and i'm in creative space also working with celebrity talent and working with corporate big companies beauty brands in different scenarios and being on camera you after how to put that away and not bring that into the space right. So it's like you can't walk into a classroom day you know. You can't go on camera with a day. You have to find a way to pack away.

Jon M. Chu - how the internet changed visibility for Asian Americans

"And if you could ever like yourself as the subject of a story it's like it almost takes a work of imagination to like you know. See that who you are can. Yes object store. I mean I basically grew up in. I think that's part of both my power and my weakness is like. I grew up in an environment in the Silicon Valley in the eighties and the nineties. And so I know that perspective because I grew up in the perspective of like Oh are Asians the other when you're surrounded by it. You are indoctrinated it and so you know what they're thinking and I grew up in a Chinese restaurant as well. So the fears of what people think of you are completely intertwined in your brain and in your heart. I think the Internet changed so much because when I watched youtube video and for instance and dance like I saw how fast the perspective of what Asians are as dancers in the dance world. When I started Asians were known as amazing hip hop dancers. But when I went to those tournaments and these these these conferences whereas they're six thousand Asia American dancers and their amazing hip hop dancers. And that's where they Kaba. Modern was job. Jabotinsky was there. Were all these amazing answers. And the world didn't know about it and in the span of like four or five years everybody knew about it and suddenly it's like. Oh Asians condense. When did you start going to these dance and I went? Let's see my cousin was going to San Diego State. And so she'd be like you have to come see this because you like dance and this is incredible and so. I want to say it was like two thousand six two thousand five. The collaboration or which dance competition was this They Will Aberration Star. Collaboration collaboration but there's also other ones but data for the first time. And that's when I did step up to I was like when I was creating sabotage like crews because I've seen these crews And Job Lock is like the. All Star like they weren't there was no ABC. At the time there was no nobody knew them they had never been filmed before so we got them very very early. But witnessing the shift of people seeing agents dancers and stink. Oh there can be the best. When you see these Korean dancers in those Uniqlo ads or in missy Elliott videos like it changed and I could see how fast that oh it just takes an example. I love that you have always seemed to love dance and music and sort of gravitated towards those areas in your work. Obviously I remember. I went to the set of your web series. You're super can't series the St shooting like a showdown seen in the town true we had. They're kicking us out in fifteen minutes so he just shoot like our whole last episode at fifteen minutes. It was insane. I was I was there. It was pretty great. And you really between that project and the step up movies and the Adam Chu dance crew. Which I'm GonNa make you explain to turn around and the Internet back then but you really seem to to be able to lean into these interests of yours but at the same time create company of talent like Harry Shum Junior. Got So many greats spotlights through your works with him and so many other dancers got on my rematch. Cast Nets smarr. All that stuff was crazy. It was crazy times. How did that like what? What kind of role did that project? First of all. How do you describe it now? Looking back I mean we were early and Youtube. There's two thousand seven two thousand eight. Maybe I don't know maybe two thousand eight nine somewhere around there and basically we had done step up to and Miley Cyrus had watched the movie and so she called our fourteen year old star of that movie atoms. Vanni who played Moose in the movie and left a message. He didn't answer he she him as I loved you in that movie congrats and didn't leave a number and so she's like fifteen or sixteen and he's fourteen. He calls me like. Oh my Gosh Miley Cyrus just called me. Can you get me her number? I'm like a I don't know how to get her now to call her age. He's like Yeah Asia. No I'm not going to do that but she was already had a youtube channel and we had already were thinking. Hey we should do some videos on youtube thing and so I was like she has her best friend. Mandy. Who's a dancer like? Let's challenge them to a dance battle and just challenger and maybe she'll answer because she knows who you are so we got our crew together and made this crazy video challenging her to a dance battle and two days later she answered and she had the biggest youtube channel at the time This is at the height of her sort of power. And when she answered us She got all her celebrity. Friends made it like music video and got included channing. Tatum and Jenna Dewan in their video. Which is kind of a slap in the face to us. We'll man dance battling real though we should. We should resolve more things. Thought those this was west side story digital like this real shit and people online like really got into it. People who hated Miley could be on our side and then people who love it could be on her side and we made another video. After and we pulled out our Rolodex we got like Sandler Lindsay Lohan. We got Chris Brown before the incidence of Diana. Ross Amanda bines before here incidents. We've got a lot of people. And then we got a huge amount of his we've got millions and millions of hits and at that time it was big and so then she answered again with like helicopters and Ryan secret and all these people about this whole thing which I remember it being just so huge but it's kind of an example of growing an Internet age community in a way very very like demonstrably has power. I mean you've also worked with Justin bieber twice and saw how how strong his phantom is. So it's kind of cool to see the Asian American community rally around Craze Rich Asians and that came out not that at all at all related to one another safe. You know all these I mean they are little bit though. That's that's what I wanted to ask about his Asian American dance crews and southern California's. Such a thing you know I went to Ucla. Watch them and it's so cool to kind of hear you talk about how. Yeah Yeah I mean I you know. And Jabber walkies like weren't they on like America's best dance crew or something like that but that was that was when like the world got to know them but before that they were in ACDC dance crew before they were actually as during while they were on there. They were in step up before they were ever On match you put you put the Jabber walkies on the map that you represented elsewhere. We film them for those for sure. I had already made my first studio movie and yet I still felt like when I would watch youtube. This is like energy and I reminded myself that. I didn't have to ask permission for anything like I could have a camera. I know how to edit and I ended all the. Are you to battle videos? I didn't have to answer to anybody. And that's an amazing confidence builder and powerful thing to know that you have at your fingertips and you can have millions of people watching it tomorrow. Not next week. When a marketing company goes not with the press release like just releasing it. There was a big lesson to me during that time knowing that I have no excuses not to make stuff at any moment that I wanna make

Bra Fitting with Kimmay Caldwell

"Past thirteen years I have been officer I have fit people say women usually but it's people really need for a Bra Sizes Double H U N Cup I've seen a lot of naked people and I honestly the reason I stayed in it so long because it changed my life and then I realized I could change other people's lives doing stuff so for example I just like Gabriel was an actress when I was going to school I had a really bad image of my body I was like welcome to the club yeah I think that for me for me personally I don't really healthy able bodied but I was just like comparing it to like perfect looking images in magazines like airbrushed so I was so you know going through school and needed to get some money so this my friend was like Oh there's this bra shop opening up and I'll pay more than the eight dollars an hour that are making four selling shoes and she said skipped his ten and I was like I'm going to be rich this is our the American dream is alive this is also a million years ago but either way my first week is abroad oh I saw actual naked human bodies and I saw stretch marks in late just like my body and I also saw people after mastectomies in surgery I saw people pregnant I saw people after pregnancy is all supermodels I saw old women young women like everything you can imagine I was like Oh this is what bodies look like God it so I started being more thankful for my own body and then realized I can help other people do the same thing in the fitting room because every single person that came in there was but this this looks gross and I was like listen I didn't even notice that sounds like God I see what a we hate ourselves a little it honestly that's true a little bit everybody has the I'm not enough shame is a shame and I hate it and that's an issue is all about okay we aligned itself talk it out get it out push it out okay I like the push it out push it real good uh-huh oh did you see them on the billboard awards Salton I heard about it was it was heavy misinformation misinformation was it also vacation Oh you weren't watching missy Elliott was missy Elliott there do it was en vaux check they didn't really get their moment like they came out like joined in on a song and I was like can we hear free your mind would that be okay but they didn't but anyway sawn pepe they're flourishing in two thousand eighteen happy I'm very happy about their happy spend Ella you wanna come in and get your off in baby come on in let's deal at yes so I was totally excited to match you guys yeah because my life was forever changed win Kamei Komo came over to my New York City apartment now maybe four to five years ago well I have a confession to tell you a little bit about that four to five years she came over and purged all of my brassieres and told me that I'm wearing the absolute wrong side is that I had no idea about actually won this like prize at a seminar that you hosted I won like a raffle so that's how I got the hookup I want her yes and I didn't know that I was hoarding all of my Musical Theater Show Buzz because to Gabrielle that I was gonna use them again which I never did and there's a pile I mean I it's a picture with Veronica's my cat sitting all over like the twenty maybe bras she was like Nope Nope Nope nope I'm just telling you now Jack Yeah be prepared I'm pretty healthy in terms of like throwing out things that don't serve you anymore four but that's a semi new development in my adult life and it comes it's party adulthood nobody tells you you're going to throw your shit out yeah we're taught to be consumed immersed and be superficial and care about material objects so you buy things and then they don't serve you anymore and you don't want to get rid of them because of guilt I don't know what but I had a woman come over here and go through my closet and it was so enlightening and it did it hurt oh honey hurt she wouldn't she goes she'd hold as you go keep or get rid of it I go Cape and she go bitch you a four these she's isn't as good as the other one and you're right and I didn't miss anything she made me rid of honey throw out my shit I'm fine with it happened daddy I'm excited for you also I will tell you a lot of people hold onto old bras like gabby was saying like because they feel like they're going to wear them again it's like another time in their life they were reminds them of I actually had for a long time that was I remember wearing that when I went on a date with my house then or whatever and I'm like what the single souvenir terrible and speaking of like husbands and partners and whatever I sort of think of people who hold onto bad ause as like a bad boyfriend so it's like you know he was he used to be real cute and super supportive yeah and now like we're just not a good fit anymore and he's a little worn out and I'm not really supportive anymore and I lost you anymore I have yet he and you're not serving you're not worth it for me anymore and I feel about bras feel about men like I want a really supportive and attractive looking Bra I wanted to support an attractive looking man so like I don't WanNa man that's like really good looking but not very supportive and he also don't want to really support Brosnan last as long as men so I think you gotta you gotTa get rid of them every once in a while because baby now we got bad bras that's what we need to do for the intro this baby now back anyway I just make everything song Well where should we start so where should we start okay you're the profession another disclaimer that like this we would this is happening live I've not I know I know nothing about your boss is what you've been wearing nothing about your I n people can you kind of take a guess just checking out my flat chest I can but we discuss that the jumps that you're wearing right now is like you know oversize of the tops look I don't know but for some double ds under your so I was Gonna say I I have a game for US play okay what and I have a new bra it's amazing size do you think I'm wearing and I know the view is at home can't see me but you can go to my site and you can see me and guests to okay a safe thirty four C Gabby doing take a guess Boura little bit I just remember what I thought was extremely off so I use myself as an example all the time this is a thirty two double D look if I was a betting woman I don't really but if I was a betting woman every in the thousands of people that I fit for bras when they come in there wearing a cup size too small in a band is too big almost every time and believe it or not because of how sister sizing works a thirty four sees the same cup size volume which was your guest as a thirty two D. and so if we I was off I have I have a very sneaking suspicion that mine is Brown okay so the thing is here so what we're GonNa today I'm going to go through the war without you for civil talk about duty styles fit you anymore the good match for you still is he still like part of your life you want him in it and will also measure you and kind of see what you're starting point bra sizes with me and discuss what the heck that even means for the viewers readers list listeners hey yeah baby for all three for you people listening to us right now I'll give you some information like how you can find your own and then I don't have any new bras for you try and because I didn't know what size rights but we were going have you would be in information we go we go to macy's or something and then I try them on look at me and poke me and Chet yeah well get real fussy in there with you yeah basically I semi recently went through I think even this is probably after the first time you were in la I went through and got rid of and Ghassem New Bras and got some fancy like Ikea's little sectional thing so it won't be as bad as it would have been a few months ago radio there's this one bra that I wear and it does not fit me hasn't lie get it I get it listen datings hard I get it is worth only Kathy does she knows the transformative power getting a Bra that fits ditching the bad brush she gets that she knows she's been there she's a transformed woman I also like really appreciate you using the under neutral pronouns I feel like I should on that up of the top reason I was thinking women bras but you're right everyone needs and bras don't care who you are Oh they're just trying to help yeah so yes to that feeling is if you like the whole reason I even work with bras now is because this is a huge disclaimer I don't actually care era yeah whoa it's really because this part of the body is where your heart is right so if this if there's any kind of discomfort like bronchials me or shame the other two bigger to smaller copier whatever or my husband hates them or there's any confusion like what burroughs is do I even wear this I hope you at home can understand what's going on here I'm like caving because there's all this sort of shame and confusion and discomfort in lifted and understood and oh my goodness even loved and adored if you love and Adore yourself like heart
