Rolling Stone spoke with Missy Elliott as part of their Women Who Rock cover story and asked the rapper about the kiss at the MTV Video Music Awards. Elliott, the only one of the four on-stage during the kissing not to swap spit, remarked, “I wasn’t kissing on that stage. Oh, no! I went to rehearsal, and I was like, ‘Oh, snap, my mama cannot watch this. I can’t tell her what time it comes on.’ But Madonna is Madonna. She’s going to do what she does, and you’re either going to like it or you don’t.” As for why there’s so much talk about it, Missy suggested, “That’s because we all knew Madonna would do that, but Britney? It was like seeing a nun kissing a rapper or something.”
