Missy Elliott and Pharrell make quite a team, and we got a huge sense of that once again after she dropped her epic “WTF (Where They From)” music video. The two have been working hard on Missy’s comeback, which she spoke candidly on with i-D Magazine. She stated, “After the Super Bowl, he hit me up like ‘Yo, what are you doing?’… He said ‘I’m not trying to push you, but people miss you. Do you see what happened out there? Have you seen the charts?’ He was like ‘I want to get in the studio with you.’ Who turns down Pharrell?” [Complex]

One of the outlet’s biggest fans was able to work with Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson on the epic, hilarious prank. [E! News]
