According to some scientists, the entire planet pauses whenever Missy Elliott performs. This theory was easily proven during Monday night's Hip Hop Honors: The 90's Game Changers on VH1. Missy opened the special with an unforgettable run-through of her 1999 classic "She's a Bitch," bringing the track's equally classic Hype Williams-directed video to life.

Of course, bringing that video to life required Missy to spend a considerable amount of time under fucking water.

The performance was immediately met with deserved tweets about Missy's inarguable greatness, something Missy took note of when captioning a behind-the-scenes photo with costume designer and stylist June Ambrose:

While you're at it, why not revisit the "She's a Bitch" video right now?

VH1's Hip Hop Honors: The 90's Game Changers also included performances from Mariah Carey, Jermaine Dupri, Da Brat, Remy Ma, Fat Joe, and more. Martin Lawrence was also a special honoree.

Last year, Missy got the tribute treatment at VH1's Hip Hop Honors with a star-stacked medley featuring Eve, Nelly Furtado, Trina, and Remy Ma.
