Missy Elliott is featured in the January/February 2003 issue of Blender magazine in ’33 Things You Should Know About Missy Elliott’. In one instance, she talks about being raped at the age of 8 by an older cousin. “It made me become very strong when it comes to men,” she says. “It’s like, ‘Don’t even look like you’re mad at me!’ That’s how on edge I am. No matter how many years ago, that’s something that still affects me every day. If you get raped, that’s something that’s there forever.”
