Janet Jackson made Missy Elliott cry when she paid tribute to her with Essence‘s Black Women in Music award

Missy Elliott surprised and honored her friend Missy Elliott with Essence's Black Women In Music Visionary Award award last night and it was such a beautiful thing! Janet's speech brought Missy to tears, ya'll!

“Some rhyme, some rap. Some act, some choreograph. Some write hit songs, some create whole new sounds. Some women are able to make her mark in some of these fields, but there’s only one woman who has made her mark in all of these fields,” Janet told the audience at the Highline Ballroom in New York City on Thursday. “Not only have you made your mark, but she’s done so with boldness and courage.”

Missy tweeted out this morning: 

"@JanetJackson our SISTERSHIP is UNBREAKABLE over 17 yrs! I THANK you for flying from the UK to present me with the #BlackWomenInMusic @essence award last night! You r the definition of LEGEND/ICON/BLACK&BEAUTIFUL oh & RICH. I ❤️you I couldn’t stop crying y’all"
