Today marks nine years since Aaliyah was tragically killed in a plane crash after shooting a video in the Bahamas. Via email, Missy Elliott reminisced with MTV about her fondest memories with the singer. R.I.P. Baby Girl.
We’ve had so many memorable times. My most memorable is when me, her and Tim wore outfits alike! It was burgundy Pony outfits to the awards. Mind you, Aaliyah was petite so her Pony outfit looked so cute on her, but I kept looking at mine during the awards whispering to her saying, “I feel like a big-a** pony for real!” And we laughed and laughed! Too many memories to state them all! If she was still with us, she would still be at the top. Because she always stayed pushing herself to be better.
