Axed X Factor contestant Misha B is already in talks over a potential record deal and collaboration with rap star Missy Elliot
Axed X Factor contestant Misha B is already in talks over a potential record deal and collaboration with rap star Missy Elliot.
The 19-year-old decided to tweet the Get Your Freak On star to thank her for being an inspiration during her time on the show.
Misha B, whose real surname os Bryan, always claimed the US superstar was her idol and often rapped verses of Missy Elliot’s songs in her X Factor performances.
The wannabe pop and rap star, mentored by Kelly Rowland, took to Twitter to write:
‘I LOVE YOU MISSY!!! U INSPIRE ME BEYOND WORDS 😀 Thanks 4 Being The INSPIRATION of My Generation & Many Too Come.’
Fans had already been tweeting the American star clips from Misha’s X Factor performances to help get her recognised by Missy Elliot.
And much to Misha’s amazement it seems Elliot had indeed watched the videos and replied saying, ‘Thank u SO MUCH I am grateful! & Congratulations to all the SUCCESS that will be coming 2 u! U R talented.’
An excited Misha re-tweeted the message, before replying with a daring tweet: ‘WOW!!! Words Can’t Describe How Much It Means To Have Ur Support! Got Me Thinkin…IMAGINE Missy E && Misha B *MUSICALMADNESS*’
And it looks like her bold ambition may be fulfilled, as her idol responded: ‘hahaha! Yup a hit! As u would say *MUSICALMADNESS* looking 4ward 2 meeting ya.’
On Monday the singer, who narrowly missed out on a place in the X Factor final, appeared on ITV’s This Morning where she revealed she had already been in talks about a record deal, though she did not confirm if it was with the US rapper.
She told host Phillip Schofield, ‘I can’t confirm if I have signed anything yet – I’ve not signed anything yet, but some great things have come my way’.
