MISSY ELLIOTT: That's Doctor Elliott to You

TeeRoy's 2 Cents:

  • Congrats, Dr. Elliott. 
  • She could be a professor, too, with all she knows about making hit music. 
  • It's always great to get good news about our favorite stars -- especially those that don't always get the credit they deserve.
  • It'd be cool to see Missy get up and perform with the kids. 

That’s when the Virginia Beach rapper and pop star will receive her honorary Doctor of Music degree from Berklee School of Music in Boston. Other artists who will be honored that day include Justin Timberlake and Broadway composer Alex Lacamoire, who's worked on Hamilton andWicked.

Students will pay tribute to the guests of honor by performing their own songs for them.

Missy tweeted about the news that she’ll be the first female hip-hop artist to receive an honorary doctorate from Berklee, writing, “I am sooooo HUMBLED!” (Billboard)
