The MTV Video Muris Awards is receiving some backlash from fans for missing the mark on highlighting the iconic artist Missy Elliot. Last year, viewers described the award as “empty,” “extremely boring,” and “they could have saved that.” These feelings from viewers come from different aspects, but most of the resort from Missy not being honored with the Micael Jackson Vanguard AWard.

This lifetime achievement award is given to artists who have dominated not only the music area but are also known for their influential music videos. Last week an announcement was made that Jennifer Lopez would be the taking the stage to accept the award. Fans of Missy were not happy about that and they were shocked by the news. Missy has hinted that she wasn’t even considered.

Missy tweeted, “I’m sorry to say I don’t think I am even on the list.” Jennifer felt some of the backlash, so she made an effort to clear the air by saying my two picks for next year recipients are Missy and Lady GaGa. The lack of acknowledgment Missy has received has sparked fans to create a campaign asking that Missy be honored with the award.

Hopefully next year Missy will receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.
