Los Angeles – The American rap icon Missy Elliott (50) has unveiled a star plaque with her name on Hollywood’s “Walk of Fame”.

Her colleagues Ciara (36, “I Bet”) and Lizzo (33, “Truth Hurts”) attended the ceremony in the heart of Hollywood as guest speakers. For them, Missy Elliott is “the brightest star” in the world, said Lizzo. “You don’t even know what you’ve done for so many black girls.” Lizzo praised the “Queen of Hip Hop” as an important pioneer.
