While several fans quoted the rest of Missy’s song, there were several comments noting her timeless beauty.

Though many focused on her weight loss, some noted her autoimmune disorder that affects the body’s “disease-fighting immune system.” As previously reported, she has been battling the disease since 2008.

The all-star list of inductees also includes Chaka Khan, Sheryl Crow, Rage Against the Machine, Willie Nelson, Kate Bush, George Michael, and The Spinners. In addition to this immense achievement, hip-hop legend DJ Kool Herc is set to receive the Music Influence Award. 

After the exciting news broke, the 51-year-old went to Twitter and penned a lengthy message thanking all of her supporters. 

“It’s times I have gotten on line & seen your irrelevant your washed up & it would crush me at times,” she wrote. “BUT God you made me STRONG I kept going & you allowed my decades of WORK to SPEAK 4 itself.” 

She continued, “I am HUMBLED thank you all my Supporters I LOVE YOU” 

This honor comes after she became the first female rapper inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.
