[ December 4th 2001 ]

Multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated superstar Missy Elliott has teamed up with BET and BET.com to spread the love...and wealth...just in time for the holiday season.

Beginning December 3, fans can log onto BET.com to enter to win the chance to have Missy "take away" your bills (up to $20,000). The contest ties into the theme of Elliott's new single, "Take Away" featuring Ginuwine and Goldmind/Elektra's newest star, Tweet, which talks about taking away all material possessions and focusing on love. "I know people are having a hard time right now," said Missy, "so just wanted to do my little part to help out." The contest will close on January 7.

Missy is enjoying one of her most successful years to date, with her critically acclaimed Miss E...So Addictive selling over a million copies in less than 2 months, achieving the highest debut spot of any female rapper and looking to top many critics' Top 10 lists at the close of the year. Missy was also eligible for 12 MTV Video Music Awards this year, more than any other artist, and took home 2 moon men for her masterminded re-make of "Lady Marmarlade." Add to that list, a nod from none other than the Guinness Book Of World Records, which is recognizing Missy's "Hot Boyz" as the "Longest Time Spent At US Rap Number One Spot" in its 2002 edition!

Missy is currently appearing in a national television campaign for Reebok. She is presenting Janet Jackson with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2001 Billboard Awards in Las Vegas on 12/4 and will close out the year with a rare live performance at Z100's Jingle Ball in New York on December 13.
