In 2008 Missy Elliot was diagnosed with Graves disease (an illness that causes the thyroid gland to produce too much thyroidhormone). Rumors say the disease had so much power on her body that she was unable to hold a pen. Since then she has been taking her health very serious. With the help of Shaun T workouts Missy has since lost 30 pounds and is looking better than ever. Check her out at Alexander Wang’s H&M launch event in New York City.
